    You better shut up!!
    And you, Mr.Jamie 2? What feeds your population? Wars, genocides against indefense people, invasion of other countries,lies, false statements to justify criminal actions against others … You better watch out what you say about other countries and people. I think you people have enough enemies around the world.

    well i just hope the aircraft controllers in charge speak english too…
    and that the police are objective enough in their investigation not to overstep aviation authorities…
    and that the convenient conclusion that gringo pilots are to blame isn’t reached in the first week of the investigation…

    DonÀ‚´t respond to fools ric. The Braz government is closing the books on the investigation, and there wonÀ‚´t be a CPI. Meanng, like the locked up docos pertaining to the military dictatorship, everything will remain speculation. And thatÀ‚´s what feeds this population, cachaca, novelas, soccer and speculation. We wouldnt want a few facts getting in the way of a good ole hatefest now would we?

    Legally there’s no such thing as an accidental murderer.

    Your’re the experts, boys, but I wouldn’t worry too much about those guys. They’re survivors.

  • jc

    Yeah… if those guys were in charge of the Legacy cockpit, a global catastrophe warning should be issued a few days before the flight. Y’know, just in case…

  • Robert S.

    You said it jc…
    can you imagine them flying at 370 all the way prague while watching big brother on TV?

  • jc

    Geez, I just hope the Czechs won’t hire Lepore and Paladino to fly the Legacy all the way to Prague…
