Very sad news... When i saw the Red Wings tail on tv i couldn't believe it...
May the crew rest in peace...
But when it comes to this, some people make me sick. I read comments like "Tupolev+Russia=crash "
(2 Likes!) and "I'll never trust a Russian airline, even if they have Boeings/Airbuses"
on Facebook. I've got to tell you, that really pissed me off.
This caused me once again to speak my mind(I removed the writers names):
"All these comments i have seen about not flying on Russian aircraft and how unsafe they are really makes me wonder what kind of idiot writes them. Russian planes aren't less safe than western ones. I am so sick of hearing/reading that.
@KB: That comment is nothing but cruel and stupid. That is why i have reported it as spam. People died and that's not something you joke about, let alone post a happy smiley about.
@LBBY: The aircraft doesn't matter. The crew does. Im not saying the crew is to blame here, but if a crew doesn't know what they are doing it doesn't matter if they are Russian, American or Spanish, or if they are flying a Boeing, Tupolev or Fokker.
I could write several more comments to individuals here, but seeing them all, i will just say to everyone going "I will not trust a Russian aircraft/airline/whatever" that a Russian machine may possibly save your life someday."
