The thing I'm most curious about at the moment is how and why they got that close. If they weren't actually intending to do something there, it seems incredulous, rather than negligent that they should have entered the cloud/fog/mist that they must have before impact.
It has happened before and will happen again. Even in the best regulated and equipped aircraft, airliners and all, people get nibbled to death by ducks as the old saying goes...........pilot error is not new -we have all been there done that, and got away with it. If you don't get away with it retribution (and judgement if you are not alive to take the retribution) can certainly follow.
