"...investigators located the black box...in near perfect condition, considering it hit the ground at 6 miles per hour..."

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA snort. I think a Chinese tape recorder padded with concrete probably would have survived.

I don't see where the disaster came in, there is a fair chance the thing would have had to land eventually anyhow.

Ooops! Have read some other articles on the Onion and understand now. Gee, and I thort Septics didn't get irony.....

That article on kids being home-churched is a worry though.

As long as we can learn from this disaster, then we can accept the tragic loss of nylon!

"One passenger, a female, said that her life passed before her eyes, minute by minute"

90 mins of her life "passing before her eyes" - how horrifying!!!!

"Emergency crews arrived on the scene 40 minutes before the crash"

Now that's impressive!
