    Mods, can you fix? It should be TransAsia in the title. Thank you.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    This is the third fatal crash of a TransAsia ATR-72! The last accident was just six months ago!

    You can see that it clips that taxi as it comes down. I wonder if anyone in the taxi was killed.

    Horrible.

    One of the propellor engines failed that's why I would never fly on a plane without two jet engines. The poor passengers and crew on board must have been terrified.

    Taiwan's Civil Aeronautics Administration said 23 people were confirmed dead, 15 were rescued with injuries and 20 were still missing. The missing people were either still in the fuselage or had perhaps been pulled down the river. The plane's wing hit a taxi on the freeway, and the driver and a passenger were injured.

    I think it just hit the front of the taxi, I'm guessing those people are okay.

    This news site has some great photos and maps, including some photos of the taxi that was clipped.

    RT51: FYI, for the first hour or two you can edit the title of a thread you created. Click on the edit icon for the first post. Once in edit you have to click on another option, I think it's "advanced" or something similar which will let you modify the title. I haven't done it in a while.

    No, they are not okay. Not dead, but not okay, at least according to JerseyGirl's link.

    The plane's wing hit a taxi on the freeway, and the driver and a passenger were injured, Chen said.

    Wow...video from car travelling behind the taxi. Looks like the driver got out and walked around. One lucky guy.
