10 years on

To the day 10 years ago, MD-11 HB-IWF operating SR111 JFK - GVA crashed off Peggy's Cove, Halifax, Nova Scotia after having suffered a catastrophic inflight fire.
An accident which changed many lives, and the industry's attitude towards dealing with inflight fires. It also elevated accident investigation and research to a new level.
This might not be the appropriate place for this, and I don't want to re-open an old discussion (and old wounds!) but I feel this needed to be said.

Cheers, guys and gals, fly safely...

You may want to put ZK-NZP 28/11/79 in your remembrance diary, Flt901. This also highlighted the safety applications of 'spacial awareness' or lack of it.
