Can only post my upmost deepest sympathies to all the families of this terrible accident. Their is no right or wrong just sadness and looking at other sights i am ashamed to work in this industry. Having flown there as a Mechanic many times I am deeply shocked to see what happened. For everybody it is important to understand working there is not easy it is not only for money it uses every angle of professionalism people have which I am sure the crew performed .

It Is sad the 7 people had worked with my son many times he works with National employees all the time he Is never home he says thay were like his brothers. As his parents when we herd of the accident we felt just a real sick feeling our thoughts and prayers go out to the families
