rip
going to syria to entertain the troops
the reports I saw just said that it crashed into the black sea shortly after taking off from sochi, but you've got to have at least a suspicion of foul play given where it was heading
IMHO, it conforms to the tupkis' accident statistics, which are otherwise relatively safe planes (they are still popular despite getting old). Besides, most accidents happen in the initial and final stages of the flight.
Those guys were iconic. It's as if Kremlin collapsed killing 92 persons.

She dies on my birthday. RIP Carrie Fisher. I'm a huge Star Wars fan. Always will be.

Well said. For some reason there is an onus to quote each death, Who started this obsession here? I think they are being 'claimed'...
BTW it was @mama who posted the first you tube video here.

Should we have a thread predicting who will be next? Or which quants...they have to start dying soon. Or which quants do we want to die next? Just throwing it out there...
