  •  Looks like the crew knew they were short (5+ / 0-)

    (would have had alarms) and tried to pull up and put it nose up slapping the tail down against the breakwater.

    The left engine hit some 50 yards from shore indicating that they might not have been kept upright by the wheels.  Big black scar on the runway from the engine.

    Given how short they were and the debris field down the runway, it really will be a miracle if everyone got out alive.

    Especially the crew in the aft galley.

    We will never be free from fear as long as we fear the NRA.
