    I wish and pray for the Almighty God to be with everybody in the families who lost their loved one’s in this deadly scene. Most unexpected and sad incident during 2010. I guess its high time for the Government / Private officials to take some steps quickly to get this airport / runway ready to avoid any such calamities. I also suggest better not media publish too many fotos / videos of this crash as it may affect a lot of families psychologically more than the actual loss of their loved ones.

    God bless all.
