They learned it from watching Airbus.

Editor's note: Are you there?

The editor is doing his bit, trying to find the lost plane.

They might be the only country able to launch a cosmonaut, but that whole atmospheric flight safety thing seems to elude them.
I'm thinking it's the vodak.

Russian aviation SOP: When approaching mountains, descend to get beneath the clouds.

"This deluxe model of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 is equipped with only the latest and most advanced Terrain Finding Radar!"

How have they not confirmed the plane crash yet? Or have they? I read about this an hour ago and it was really light on facts. I'm pretty sure planes don't just disappear though, and when they crash, they usually leave a mark.

Later today..... mountainside images of plane debris scattered about with the Indonesian's version of the FAA personnel combing the site dressed in official investigative apparel.

They must have forgotten to remove military stealth technology from their first civilian plane...

44 dead people and we're doing penis gourd jokes. It's good to be on Fark in the morning.

By the time the plane was due to return it should have burned up its fuel, RIA Novosti said.

Uh...

Nothing in the article about dead people... yet.

FTFA: The plane began making its descent but vanished from radar screens at 6,200 feet in a mountainous area.

Hmm... And the mountains are how high in this mountainous area...?

Let's see... carry the two...

Am I the only person who is conflicted by this?

On one hand, I am sorry that 38 passengers and 8 crew members have likely been killed in a horrible plane crash. Loss of life is no joke and this is a tragedy.

But on the other hand, it's kind of nice to see the commies' industries fail.

It did suck. I always wondered if they fired their technical advisers and hired monkeys instead.

That single scene ruined that movie for me. Worst action scene concept ever.

I didn't fell much when I read about this. Failure like this is expected. Dog wants steak?
