how do you even get hold of a person at AVCOM???????????????????
The news is full of it. http://t.co/6sBRTPXU. No names have been mentioned either in the reports or on this site. What precisely is your point?

Condolences to the families.

RIP Aviators.

A few Avcommers are based in Kabul...

Condolences to the families of those involved.

This is heart breaking - thoughts and prayers to all those left behind - for the South African and Russian pilots

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

My deepest sympathy to the families and friends who lost loved ones in a suicide bomb attack in Kabul this morning. 8 innocent South Africans died as a result. Crazy world we living in!!
