by Moody Adams While the media forcuses on what caused the crash, the great story is how the hundreds of passengers survived.
At 500 feet and 10 seconds out, everything was normal. We have not yet learned why the plane lost speed. But pilots must be given some credit in the survival of all but one passenger.
Seconds before the plane turned into a blazing fire, the flight attendants managed to get hundreds of passengers off the plane in seconds. When you have seen it take one half hour to get the on the plane, this is remarkable.
The 777 crew deserves a great deal of appreciation for their heroic actions in this terrible tragedy.
