The article “Plane was a roller coaster” (2/17, A-2) featured an interview with a flight instructor who gave an imaginary scenario of what took place in the passenger cabin during the last moments of Flight 3407 as it crashed on its descent to Buffalo, N.Y. As a retired airline pilot, I found it completely disgusting.
This is not news; it’s macabre sensationalism. It has nothing to do with what really occurred. This type of journalism is not even fit for the sleazy tabloids.
The relatives and friends of those passengers must be horrified. Publishing an article like this serves no purpose. There are enough true horrors in this world without concocting “grim” fairy tales. Please consider the loved ones left behind.
