I saw the ASA 529 on today. I thought it was amazing that everybody survived the initial impact the only person who didn't walk away from the plane was the captain (a hero in his own), sucks for the fire, though.

Also, why wouldn't the First officer have just popped the escape hatch on the roof of the cockpit? Did the Brasilia not have one then?
And all at once the crowd begins to sing: Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same
