    Glad it wasn't worse, waiting to hear what the cause was.

    So far, I'm hearing pilot error and a short landing. I don't believe that, but that's what I'm hearing.

    ya,kind of my opinion too,there were no mayday or emergency calls from the cockpit before the crash & the weather & wind conditions were not a factor,it was clear & only 8mph winds.
    but as we know it will take a long time before we have an official cause.

    What do you believe?
    No diss, just wondering what else seems as likely.

    Some amateur footage http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/07/us/plane-crash-main/
    Looks like pilot error and short landing.

    Must have been terrifying, very glad it wasn't worse.

    They were operating under visual flight rules (VFR) and regardless of whether or not the ILS instrument approach system was on or not should not have been a factor. By FAA rules, the VASI system should have been in working order regardless of construction. Red on red, your dead. Red on white, just right, White on white, your high as a kite. As for departing aircraft turbulence, pilots are taught to land beyond the point of take off of the preceding aircraft to avoid such conditions.

    I can't tell by the amateur video just what happened. I won't even begin to speculate. I'd of had to have been in the cockpit to tell you what went on.

    All I heard was that they didn't know, and a reporter asked if it could be pilot error, some dude said they haven't ruled anything out.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.
