Among those killed was a U.S. citizen.
Airplane, a year old, returns to Moscow airport following fire on board after takeoff
Most of the discussion I have seen in the last day or so has focussed on pax taking their hand luggage down and out, preventing others from escaping.
Everyone associated with the industry has always said that such actions would ultimately lead to loss of life. I wonder if, in this case, it will become a case of 'how many'....
Looking at the images, it's hard to imagine how anyone would even consider luggage, and yet I recall members on here saying that they would take their luggage.
JB was gracious enough to not criticise the pilots for miscalculating their approach due to the excess landing weight/speed.
For me that was inexcusable.
