Re: 20 dead in Junkers Ju 52 crash in Switzerland

What the hell is wrong with you people on this forum? I just find it amazing the level most of you stoop to, to make a point. A plane has crashed and people have died. There is far more bickering about everything but the actual crash itself. Grow up already!
