    Post Tragic Accident at Madrid, Barajas

    Over 140 killed after plane crash at Madrid - Barajas.

    It was an MD-82 of Spanair. Apparently, the left engine caught fire on rotation during take-off. The plane lost control, turning left and dropping to the ground in flames. Total no. pax was around 170.

    It was a connection flight shared with Lufthansa, going to the Canary Islands.

    Sad day for many people today. Let's pray for the victims' souls and their families.

    Very tragic indeed. Prayers for the families.

    A very chilling similarity to the L-1011 in Chicago.

    Noone knows why these things take so many or so few lives, but it is equally tragic to lose 1 as 140 our prayers go out to the families of those lost and to the survivors that they find comfort in their lives. The doors of Heaven opened and the Lord invited 140 souls to join him for dinner. There but for the Grace of God go I.
