    When driving on the road you are always aware of other cars or pedestrians.

    But a plane coming at you. Totally unexpected. :?

    Good to hear no one on the plane was seriously hurt, but said to hear that a child in one of the vehicles died. :(

    But just a little laughter out of tragedy.I go to the pprune site occasionally and on this subject was an interesting report of the TV coverage of this incident.
    Male reporter on scene-the plane ploughed off the runway,through the perimeter fence and a sound barrier onto the roadway-
    Female anchor-The sound barrier,that's pretty fast isnt it,why was the plane landing so fast?
