    My condolences to the deceased's family. As we now see the increase in the number of low cost airlines in the market, we shoud have safety and reliability in mind we should not jst be impressed by the affordability. We can't compromise on safety.

    It was the EAA convention at Margate this Weekend, so more than likely a light aircraft.

    These politically motivated comments even if there's no need are really disgusting.Have the people lost touch with UBUNTU/HUMANITY?This has nothing to do with ANC, DA or politics for that matter. Someone lost his/her life but people are busy posting political comments which has no place in this story.Can we please respect the dead and the grieving family? I don't care if I get hundreds of thumbs down but the truth will always be the truth and I'm glad I've said it.It doesn't matter whether the one who passed one (God bless his/her soul) is black,white,green or yellow.At the end of the day that's one life lost which is one too many because somebody lost a father,son,daughter or mother. God bless the grieving family and the rerst in these blogs.Thank you.
