I just heard on the radio that the pilot was attacked by the taxi passengers while still strapped in his seat!

That was the worst thing I have ever heard! Why the hell would anyone do that? I can understand that you do it to a reckless idiot that has hit you with a car, but a pilot in a plane that has crashed? Jeez...

Hi everyone,

Here is a link to the latest update on the crash, seems that both pilot and passenger of the Tiger Moth were experienced commercial airline pilots. Once again, condolences.
