I read about the plane crash at 5:30 p.m. tonight. At that time MSN reported it was a twin engine prop.

There were all Italians on board the Tunisia (sp?) flight. I believe the pilot put out a May Day and told the control tower they had to land in the sea.

So sad.

Hi cmt, I saw it on CNN early this morning. It made me "jump" as just yesterday I responded to a thread here on Fodor's about Bari which brought up a lot of memories about the beautiful people in Bari.

Sad indeed. Reinforces my belief that we all need to enjoy life day by day and not "sweat the small stuff" because who knows what the future brings.

I didn't want to write this, but we have dear friends who live in Bari... hoping they weren't on that airplane.

Oh i_am_kane, can you call them?
Big chances are they were not on that plane, it was what, about 35 passengers. But if you are worried (I sure understand) do you have their phone number? Best wishes to you and your friends.
