Plane Crash In Buffalo

  1. My prayers go out to all.

    RIP to the victims, and condolences to their families and friends.
  2. And people wonder why I staunchly refuse to fly in turboprop commuter airplanes. This is a bit of a downer after the US Airways rescue. I guess Sully can't be everywhere at once.
  3. 48 or 49 people on board, and they're not (understandably) speaking about survivors yet, but it doesn't look good.
  4. No one knows exactly what happened. But one can assume icing of some sort as it was reported by several aircraft on the same approach. Turboprops are just as safe as turbofan/jet aircraft and very economical.
