That piece of equipment is not a bulldozer, it is a loader, and will likely be being used to lift heavy pieces of aircraft for recovery. In that picture there is no evidence of the site being...

Actually I don't live there anymore, I live in Asia. It is an over-generalization to brand an entire region as having a poor safety culture, especially in the 21st century. It is much more an...
