Had a friend from the University of Miami on that flight. It has a profound effect on me to this day.
I'm sorry for your loss. Peace be with you.
In the days after this tragedy, there was a lot of commentary implying the gender of the captain, and the quality of the pilots given that it was a budget airline. When the actual cause came to light, these scurrilous accusations quietly limped away.
It was chilling
Ahhh yes, the Everglades. I was a flight engineer with Eastern a hundred years ago & Eastern did a lot of air work over the Glades. We were in a 7 @ 2:00am over the Glades, checking out a new co-pilot from the Navy & we went into a crossfeed problem & lost all 4 engines at 6000 feet. Really gets quiet.
Its beyond sad poor families. Rip pax and crew.
