    These sorts of senseless tragedies could be avoided if we'd ban air travel. When will the carnage end? O! The Humanity!

    I can write articles like this: "Two people who were involved in a car accident in the U.S. died, officials said." Can I get a job with you, CNN?

    It might have been terrain collision. If it was in Tegucigalpa, they have one of the most dangerous runway approaches in the world.

    Toncontin Airport. One of the 10 most dangerous airports in the world. Doesn't surprise me. I was just watching a tv show about it yesterday.

    The first investigations point to poor visibility in the area of the accident. Among the dead are several Honduran union leaders and some Americans boarded the plane too. All who have landed at the airport of tegucilgapa, literally "le rascamos los huevos a la muerte". It's a shame that for economic interests of a few persons, this airport don’t be moved to a more appropriate place.

      I can't believe I'm writing this but yes, the list is correct. I knew one of the passengers as well and it's devestating. I'm so sorry for your loss.
