in my opinion no one goes down to Nantes in the middle of winter on a jaunt like this unless they are being paid.

Trying to prove the pilot was paid is a different ball game if you pardon the pun....

Cleary not friends in the flying club sharing the cost but a blatant advertisement to drum up fare paying passengers.

The way to stop this is via press publicity to highlight how unsuspecting...

It seems highly likely that the body is that of the passenger who would have been seated in the back. No pictures have emerged of the front section of the aircraft.

If it is Ryanair a lot will have to change at the airport not least the appalling staff and over the top security.

I think that it depends on your mindset.

In my opinion the autopilot not the pilot was flying up until the icing overcame it and disengaged.

If they find the wreckage I suspect it will display evidence of a classic stall spin accident.

Just seen that Jon.

I was minded to look at Wingly because of the Malibu accident which was clearly in breach of the rules.

It apears to me the CAA need to sharpen their act. Like many I have a...

Try telling that to the family of the terrified passenger who died in this accident. Clearly whoever put pilot and passenger together in this chain of events carries some responsibility?
