One of my many interests is civil aviation and I'm a regular visitor to the "Aviation Safety Network" website. Last Sunday there was a tragic plane crash which took the lives of 20 people. What struck me as a little odd was the name of the company operating the aircraft considering the country in which the accident took place :o
