    Very sad. So are there any survivors at all? Because adding up the numbers, more people died than there were on the plane? Also, the driver of that car must have had the shock of his life...

    Is it just a coincidence that all of these plane crashes are happening in Asia? Talk about taking the stereotype up a notch.

    I wonder if the drive of that yellow car made it out okay.

    EDIT: Apparently, he is okay.

    Never flying with an Asian airline. That video is scary as hell. I would have fainted like the taxi driver.

    The engines on that plane look really small.

    You'd think a TransAsia plane would have crashed in Bangkok River.

    The last four major crashes and accidents have all been from Asian pilots. :eek:

    Or at least from Asian airlines.

    I think the last plane crash that was in the news one of the pilots was French but yes was all Asian airlines.

    But regardless, all tragic and scary video to watch.

    Multiple sources from Chris Broussad confirm Jerry Lin was NOT the pilot.
