OK Thanks. Wasn't aware of this. Not sure, but perhaps this is worth a thread of it's own.

Includes picture of the crashed aircraft'showing the tail number. The newspaper has also included photo's of the crew. Don't think that was necessary . . .

I dislike any news publication that takes peoples facebook photos and uses them like that.

A very sad day. I was fortunate to work with one of the pilots, Greg Seymon, for a number of years at Ansett in the corporate head office. A very good all-round sportsman, dedicated husband, father, and generally a ripping bloke.

When Ansett collapsed he chased his dream of becoming a commercial pilot, and to a degree, I envied him for doing so - never having the courage to do the same myself. The sad irony is it was a famous old AN tail number that took him.

Rest in peace mate, and condolences to your wife and 2 children.

B727-200.

Very sad for their loved ones and the entire community. Darwin is a very tight community and this tragic loss impacts everybody in some way. We will await the ATSB and coronial enquiry. However, whilst the regulations do not madate simulator training I can't help think that if this training had have been done in the Ansett sim in Australia then these lives may not have been lost.

Apparently, the crash occured while simulating an engine out takeoff.

Shades of F-WWKH unfortunately.....always a tragedy, whether there are two or two hundred on board.
