Sorry to hear about your friend. I hope you can find peace that he was chasing his dream.First post ever on this forum. My best friend in the world was the sole American on this flight. He was the nicest and most caring person I ever met and was on his way to guide fly fishing tours in Murmansk, living his dream right up until the very end. I'm glad the lucky few who escaped were able to get their carry on bags on the way out.
I've seen them.I’ve seen the movie. Way too high of a drug requirement to be a truly enjoyable pastime for a flying professional.
Official investigation word is that the delays due to bags claim was looked into and was found unsubstantiated. The back rows never unfastened their seat belts.Again...throat punches are allowable.
survivor of the Russian Aeroflot crash says God is the 'judge' of passengers who stopped to grab luggage as 41 died in the blaze
A survivor of the Russian Aeroflot crash says God is the 'judge' of passengers who stopped to grab luggage as 41 died in the blazeA video of passengers with luggage raises questions about whether grabbing their bags slowed an evacuation as flames ripped through the aircraft.www.insider.com
A video from the aftermath of the deadly Russian plane crash on Sunday shows some passengers fleeing the scene while toting their luggage, raising questions about whether grabbing their bags wasted precious time for others to escape.
The Aeroflot jet made an emergency landing in Moscow while it was still heavy with fuel and immediately ignited, sending flames ripping through the airliner's fuselage and killing 41 of the 78 people aboard, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
One survivor, Mikhail Savchenko, posted footage on Facebook of the plane's burning wreckage and said he didn't know what to make of his fellow passengers' actions.
He asked people not to judge them too harshly, as they may not have been thinking clearly amid the chaos.
"I do not know what to say about people who ran out with bags," he wrote in Russian, according to the AP's translation. "God is their judge."
I know its a little late since, ya know, you posted this last week but I have another addition:Implying I’m taken seriously anyway, but fine:
- locking the bins may preclude access to fight a fire
- locking the bins may preclude someone from putting things away in a timely fashion
- it’s another thing to break and we don’t need more stuff in back that breaks
- above mentioned behavior as well
Yeah, that’s awkward. And from watching the video I’m not hugely surprised by that determination. Might also be awkward if a door was opened allowing the fire into the pressure vessel too, but we’ll see.Official investigation word is that the delays due to bags claim was looked into and was found unsubstantiated. The back rows never unfastened their seat belts.
Still irresponsible at this point. The over arching message should be, “Leave your stuff, GTFO”, period, end of statement.Official investigation word is that the delays due to bags claim was looked into and was found unsubstantiated. The back rows never unfastened their seat belts.
