You guys have seen the videos of the corpse flapping from the landing gear bays? The video of the person falling from the aircraft as it took off? The reports of hands and limbs being found in the gear bays after landing?

What happened out there was a human tragedy of epic proportions.

Do some reflection on your comments here. You should be ashamed of yourselves

Just looked at one of the articles in The Mail. Pictures of the French ensuring their evacuees get on an A400M with all their luggage. Could see one with 2 suitcases and a rucksack.

I completely agree.

What I saw was an utter disgrace. Yet not out of character.

Disgusting and disgraceful. Sadly typical as only third world lives being tragically lost which don't seem matter to so many here.
