Link Apparently the 737 hit a smaller aircraft, which was able to return safely. But the 737 crashed and all 155 people on board died. Oddly, both jets were less than 5 years old, with experinced crews and anti collusion gear. What a bizzare week this has been. I hope tommorow is more sane, this week has had some pretty crazy shit going on everywhere. Probley the most eventfull September ever in history (Except in September 1939). I have a feeling more bad stuff will keep happening.

I'm surprised the smaller plane made it back in safely, the article says the 737 just clipped it, but i would think that would still throw it out of control.

I'm wondering what that 737 pilot was doing not to notice that he was coming up on a jet that close...

I'm thinking they were flying through clouds at the time. I'm almost positive that most, if not all, large airliners such as this one have some sort of detection system for aircraft that are nearby. I'll wait for PanAm though, since he would know more than I do about it. Here's a little more information on Cachimbo, the place where the smaller plane landed. According to a post made on Google Earth, the place where the Legacy 600, the plane that clipped the 737, landed was a nuclear testing area in the late 1980's.

Here's a picture of the area where the 737 crashed.

Unfortunately, the probability of survival in that terrain is almost zero.

I've been on the scene of some plane crashes through volunteer work with the Civil Air Patrol. Never had any survivors, though. They are some of the most gruesome things I've ever seen.

On the bright side, the smaller plane somehow got back, so its not a complete tragedy. And it had to have been over fast as well. If thats any consolation to the families.

Thats a good possibility.

True, but i can't see surviving a 500kph/310mph impact regardless.

Surprisingly, if the pilot REALLY knows what he's doing and takes in the aircraft at just the right angle and can slow down the aircraft just enough, the crash becomes survivable. However, large, flat ground like a plain or a very flat desert would be needed. The trick doesn't work in a rainforest. Or a swamp, for that matter.
