Re: Lion Air Flight 610

Someone on the ground neglected to remove the pitot tube covers. The pilots had no idea of their true airspeed. The airplane stalled and plunged into the ocean. People died. I'm sorry.

Re: Stolen Double Post- Rear-end collision on runway.

I think common sense would determine you would try to do that - perhaps some form of mechanical or mental failure stopped the chap behind from doing such a thing. Very odd indeed.

This is a very satisfying video. Amusing. I wonder if the anchor is still there?!
Expensive stuff, they'd try to salvage it.
