    That's very poignant at the moment. Seems to fit many of the criteria with the Q400 Bombardier.

    Very chilling .............. pun is NOT intended

    Tragic accident

    Turbo prop
    High tail plane
    Possibly on autopilot
    Landing approach flaps deployed
    weather conditions.

    I wonder what the outcome will be of the investigation?
