    Let's worry about the crew and families for now. The rest of it will come out in due time I am sure.

    I hope long enough to show some respect for the crew and their families.

    I just deleted two posts that were made in poor taste. Our company just lost two employees plus whoever was on the ground. Lets please show some class and respect here for a change.

    I offer my condolences to the families involved. I will keep them in my prayers this weekend.

    RIP for the crew and their families.
    So far, available info indicates major visibility limitations in the cockpit (remembrances of the ill-fated Swissair flight).
    More info here:
    Read through the thread. There is also a report by a pilot who says he heard on ATC about the difficulties encountered by the crew, asking for basic flight info (heading, speed, altitude).

    I've worked with those within our Air division. UPS Pilots are best of class, none finer. My heart goes out to the crew and family.

    How very sad, IMO I dont think some of the comments, thankfully deleted before I saw them got deleted. These guys were part of our family. No matter what the reason, a sad day in the UPS family.

    Very sad indeed. Anyone who has enough training and seniority to fly a 747-400F is an incredibly skilled pilot, meaning they undoubtedly did everything possible to save both themselves and the aircraft. My condolences to the families, and to the UPS family as well.

    When our MD11 crashed last year at Tokyo, UPS crewmembers participated in honoring those pilots. Hopefully, FedEx will show just as much class in honoring yours.

    I've got a pilot that lives on my route. The stories those guys/gals can tell are amazing. I'm sure we lost 2 great employees today. Hopefully UPS will show them & their families the proper respect. RIP
