I heard about that. It's all over the news here. I'm just glad there were no fatalities.

hey man, shit hapens. Larry king was talking to one of the survivors shortly after the accident, and he asked the man wether or not he would fly again, the masn response was "of course". Its good that he can survive something like that and still wanna jump on a plane again.

Is that the one that lost all power? And ended up landing on a military strip in the atlantic ocean?


I believe they blamed it on lightning, heavy hail, and just shit weather in general. I wonder what the weather ratign was at the time of landing. Probably an A.

Yes, they landed at the military Base on an island!!The A330 has a fuel line leak that causes the plane to lose fuel so much until it ran empty.So they glide all the way to the island!!
