BREAKING: No Miracle On The Amstel

Unlike the unbelievable landing on water by an US Airways plane, a Turkish airliner crash landed in Amsterdam's Schiphol* airport a few moments ago -- breaking the plane in three.



1 person is already confirmed dead, possibly 80 passengers are safe according to reports, in a total of 135 passengers. Horrifying.

Let's hope it turns out as best as the situation can.

*If you ever have a spare 2 or 3 hours, try to get a Dutch person to teach you how to pronounce "Schiphol" correctly.

  • That's horrible, the death toll is already up to 9. The whole story will come out.

    I recall nervously watching a loved one board a Pakistani Air flight from Schiphol to America. That was pre-9/11, so it was just my prejudice showing through.

    If you ever have a spare 2 or 3 hours, try to get a Dutch person to teach you how to pronounce "Schiphol" correctly.

    Then, after "Schipol", try "Scheveningen". :)

  • THAT IS UNCANNY! When I was composing it, I was going to write something similar. :)
