Air NZ crash on anniversary of worst NZ air tragedy

Air NZ plane crashes into Mediterranean
LATEST: One person is dead and at least six missing – most believed to be New Zealanders - after an Airbus A320 smashed into the Mediterranean Sea this morning.
One body has been recovered. Air New Zealand has confirmed that it was one of its aircraft. Deputy chief executive Norm Thomsen said the company had reacted an emergency response procedure. The aircraft was being flown on an acceptance flight from the Airbus headquarters at Toulouse.

On the 29th anniversary of NZ’s worst ever air disaster, Mount Erubus, Air NZ have suffered another crash. Eye-openingly this was the planes final test flight before it was about to go on active duty.

Horrible,but at least It did not happen during a commercial flight with 300 people on board.
R.I.P to the victims and my thoughts are with their family and friends.

Gee that is sad, there is something particularly disturbing about plane crashes, don't know why, loads more people get killed on busses. Maybe its the 'all or nothing' nature of them.
