    Always sad to here about plane crash. This feels a little bit more strange as I was on Malta yesterday to setup an radar to cover Tripoli, but we only managed to get coverage 100 km north of Tripoli, and the next day, this happens.

    62 Dutch passengers were on board. Only a young boy 8 or 9 years old survived the crash. Sadness in my country.
