I just heard on the radio that the pilot was attacked by the taxi passengers while still strapped in his seat!
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

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.
