    Sad to see something like this, but even sader because you KNOW it only made [big] news because they thought terrorism first.

    Very good to see everyone made it out ok. With such nasty sounding weather I'm surprised they weren't re-routed elsewhere.

    A big pat on the back to the flight crew (Pilot, Co-Pilot, Nav and such), they landed the damn thing in the first place.

    one thing for sure is that there damm lucky that they didnt land on the 401, at 3:50 on the 401 it would have been worse than losing everyone on the plane its self. i would have to comend the pilot on that one.

    Weather, sounds like a case of the plane perhaps hydroplaning or just slidding in the intense rain.

    I have also heard that a crash happened on the same runway, number 24L, back in June 1978. I don't know the exact details, but the plane had skidded off the same runway and onto the same ravine. :s

    That's exactly what the ravine is for. To prevent that scenario.

    Cool everybody got out OK.

    I was in Toronto when it happened, my sister, friend and cousin were at the Backstreet Boy concert and my dad and I were cruising through electronic stores.
