Plane with over 170 people crashes in Brazil

Sucks. So sad. So far the live coverage seems to make it pretty serious, maybe with a very tragic outcome.

Past year, Brazil had another plane accident in which over 150 passengers died.

This airport where this plane just crashed is at the center of Sao Paulo, and really needs to be obsoleted and replaced with a couple of other airports.

Sounds like the pilot tried to take off again but didn't make it. Very sad, and an accident waiting to happen it seems, with pilots complaining before about skidding in the wet.

You have to wonder at the wisdom of having fuel stored at the end of the runway... (not sure if it's a gas station or a fuel store from the news reports).
