    In other developments, a Brazilian soccer group refuted reports Monday that Chapecoense was fined almost $30,000 for missing its final match of the season against Atletico Mineiro.

    [...]

    “On the day of the tragedy, (federation) President Marco Polo Del Nero determined seven days of mourning in Brazilian football,” he said, adding that the soccer federation pledged $1.5 million to support the grieving club.

    Does that sound like a silly statement ? Most of the time that is how it works

    I think I would kinda know if the engines starting spooling down that we might be in a dash of a situation??

    I only recently started following this thread. I heard about the crash when it happened and the fuel issue. I remember thinking there must have been some miscalculation in the amount of fuel loaded before take-off. But now reading the thread and the preliminary report I see that is not the case. It is truly unbelievable the amount of negligence and by so many different people that led to this tragedy. It is particularly puzzling that the pilots seemed unconcerned about the fuel. I can only assume that both pilots just didn't truly understand the situation.
