    just wondered if any of us r from spain on this forum? but what happened today was devastating even tho i didnt know them...i work in this industry ..planes....and it fucking pisses me off that most of those crash r due to mechanical malfunction, due to poor management, due to cost.....
    anyway hope nobody here was going on vacation in grand canaria.
    life is really short! we should enjoy every bit of it!

    I work in the industry too, I hope this crash was the result of a series of very very unlucky events with no human error but unfortunately as you say, most are.

    Is it co-incidence that the company which owns Spanair (SAS) is going through a financial crisis at the moment as I really hope this wasn't the indirect result of a cost-cutting exercise.

    The plane in Spain falls mainly on the runway.

    I see that the spanish are doing cheap flights to the canary islands but I just cant see them taking off

    The World Record for the 200 metre sprint was broken twice in the same day. First by Usain Bolt, then by twenty odd Spanish plane passengers.

    In a recent survey asking spanish tourists where they like to sleep on holiday
    90% said they prefered to just crash at the airport
