THE FRENCH ALPS CRASH: NO SURVIVORS EXPECTED


A passenger jet carrying 152 people crashed Tuesday in the French Alps as it flew from Barcelona to Duesseldorf, authorities said..




Various sources reporting: The crash site was at Meolans-Revels, near the popular ski resort of Pra Loup, according to Eric Ciotti, the head of the regional council in southeast France…


There are also reports that the Germanwings Airbus A320 sent out a distress signal prior to the crash.. A long search and rescue operation has now begun, as the crash site is in an extremely mountainous region..


The CEO of the airline said that there were, in all, 152 people on board.  That number includes two babies.


German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Tuesday that “we don’t know much about the flight and the crash yet. And we don’t know the cause.”


And more, the AP reporting:



The owner of a campground near the crash site, Pierre Polizzi, said he heard the plane making curious noises shortly before it crashed.


“At 11.30, I heard a series of loud noises in the air. There are often fighter jets flying over, so I thought it sounded just like that. I looked outside, but I couldn’t see any fighter planes,” he told The Associated Press in a phone interview. “The noise I heard was long – like 8 seconds – as if the plane was going more slowly than a military plane. There was another long noise after about 30 seconds.”

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..
