    Searches of the Atlantic still have not turned up any trace of the aircraft.

    let us hope that this ends well, although early indications aren't good.
    personally, i won't fly on an airbus. after the one that crashed in new jersey just after 9/11/01, it became apparent that the carbon fiber in critical areas of the air frame is subject to failure when subjected to severe shearing dynamics.

    having said that, i think a prayer or sympathy for those aboard and their loved ones is appropriate.

    I think as more time passess and no news-ending well becomes less and less likely

    I read that Portuguese air controllers indicated the plane never made contact with them in the mid-Atlantic Azores Islands or in Cape Verde or Casablanca. The French president just came on to say the prospects for finding any survivors are "very small."

    They wouldn't have been anywhere near the Bermuda Triangle.

    What a tragedy.

    I'm really stressed out because my friend works for Air France and he's on a trip. I think he's supposed to be in Cuba, but I haven't heard anything from him yet.

    Medic911 saidI saw this on TV before!

    Oh wait....



    That was
    LOST.


    Good show, though.



    Really? This was funny to you?

    These kinds of accidents are heartbreaking. So sad. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the people involved.

    Let me tell you something, you ignorant asshole: I deal every day with tragedy. My job is to scrape people out of cars and off the highway. I see people die almost every day. I lost 3 patients this week alone, and had to tell the families I did everything I could. I don't owe you any explanation of my humor. It takes a joke every now and then to keep you sane in this line of work.

    I wasn't mocking anyone involved in this tragedy.

    Get your facts straight before you accuse people. And when you do call 9-1-1, rest assured those guys set the jokes aside to risk their lives to save you.

    No they didn't. And there's nothing mysterious about that area. I've always thought about it like I do of UFOs icon_biggrin.gif

    The supposedly missing ships and boats are all in Cuba icon_razz.gif

    Your joke was not funny and I don't care what your line of occupation is. Calling me an ignorant asshole or thinking that my post is flamey makes you dillusional and immature. Grow up.

    "I love you" or "I'm afraid" were some of the messages passengers on the plane sent to their loved ones on the ground, when they realized that the aircraft had problems.

    It is still much more dangerous to drive, but how sad.
