Is my head in the sand?

What am I missing here? Don’t get me wrong it is very sad thart these people died in a plane crash. Australian Federal Police (AFP) officers Brice Steele and Mark Scott, diplomat Liz O'Neill, AusAID's Allison Sudradjat and Australian Financial Review journalist Morgan Mellish. Is it because of who they are that so much has been made of it. After all it was not a terrorist attack,it was just a tradgic accident.

The police have now been brought in now to question the pilots as its been said the cause was human error. Its sad Dieter but you know the media they'll take a story and milk it for whatever they can get out of it till there is nothing left to squeeze out.

What i'd like to know is how does channel seven know what channel nine is always going to broadcast and vice versa on a current affair and today tonight

Yes, I know...as my son is training to be a pilot himself, I kept an eye out for news on the poor Pilots, but not a word until day 3 or 4. I think that they did the best they could, and at last a LOT of people did survive.

It may, or may not, be their fault, witness say "there was no wind" but have you ever beenup in a hot-air balloon? They test the winds by releasing a smaller helium balloon first, and often it will rise, then take off to the left or right, depending on the wind just "up there" *points.

No one knows.....
