    The weather at the destination airport was not great, just above the minimums for a VOR approach.

    When CAN (Cable Advertising Network) is not in the news business any more, because if they are still in this business they will fire the Editor.

      Are you serious? 12 people have lost their lives and their families are devastated and you are making jokes like that? It amazes me how people hide behind keyboards these days. Would you say the same comment if you were standing next to their families. I doubt it. Grow up and have some respect for other people.

      Pitbull, you're the reason the whole world hates your country. Eat rat poison and die. I have 4 friends that died yesterday afternoon on that plane. To the rest of the Americans reading this, Im sorry if I've offended you, but having idiots like this in your country doesn't help your cause.
