crash_08-20-08-thumb-400x184Instead of going the negative route, I am happy that currently there are 19 survivors from the crash today of  Spanair Flight JK5022. It is sad that so far 153 are reported dead, but anytime we have a crash like this, it is nice to see there are some survivors.

It appears the airliner sped off the end of the runway and broke apart. More details of the crash are not currently known. It has been reported that the flight was delayed an hour for technical problems.

Of course our thoughts go to those who have lost someone in this crash and this is always the negative part of having an interest in the airline business.
