Flowers of Manchester -
I recall as a child awaking to the News of the Munich crash - even at that age it shocked me.
But please remember those of you that sing the original version Captain Thain was exonerated in the end - it was slush on the runway, not ice on the wings.
On the other hand his dismisal stood - not for the crash but for 1/. Accepting the word of the ground crew that the wings were clear of ice rather than checking himself, and 2/. Not aborting the last take off run early enough.
gareth - in insurance claims.
