Flight 3407

Crash of Continental Connection Flight 3407 from Newark that killed all the 49 people on board and one on ground came as a shock for the nation that has just survived from the near fatal crash of US Airways Flight 1549 on Jan 15th, which crashed landed in Hudson River and fortunately all 155 on board survived.

The doomed plane, a Bombraider Dash 8 Q400 having a capacity of 74 with two twin turboprop engines is perfectly capable to flying in cold and icy conditions and as the news goes that there was a sudden accumulation of ice on the wings is also not a big phenomenon that can bring the plane down.

What ever happened on board must be thoroughly investigated and this time the media must not pose the ice and the chilling conditions as the weapons of mass destruction used by the Muslims terrorists.
