Another Aviation Tragedy
Another passenger jet has disappeared over water. This time it was an AirAsia Airbus with over a hundred souls on board. Weather was terrible. The pilot changed course, but evidently, was unable to save the aircraft. All passengers and crew are presumed lost.Even with the levels of redundant safety systems engineered into commercial airplanes, too often they are lost. Having lost two uncles to airplanes, I will never be eager to fly. My prayers go out to those touched by the Air Asia disaster.
