    This does nothing to cure my fear of flying, although it sounds like they never really got into the air though. Wonder what happened?

    No one deserves to have something like this happen to them but LOL Blink182.

    Reminds me of everything bad about the 90's -early 00's

    Dear Lord, this is the third plane crash I've heard about this week. Whoever says the odds of dying in a plane are remote are in denial.

    If the words "critical condition in the burn unit" are ever used to describe me, I'd probably rather be dead at that point.


    Good luck to both of them.

    On any given day, there's an average of 87,000 total flights in the US.

    That's 609,000 a week. You've heard about 3 accidents - or about .0000049% of total air volume.

    Sounds pretty horrible. My prayers go out to anyone affected by this tragedy.

    How many fatal/near fatal car crashes have you heard about this week? Oh that's right, there were so many that they don't even bother to report them because it would take the entire news broadcast.

    Not a fan of either, but I hope they get better, I never like to see anyone hurt that I dont dislike.

    Medical question here. Anyone know if all of Travis's tattoos help/hurt/will be ruined because of the burns??

    The burn scars will probably mess those all up

    Haha. Tattoos are not some sort of protective coating. Tattooed skin will burn just like normal skin. So yes, if it burned, it would be ruined, just like normal skin.

    i can only say this has a paramedic in this area and knowing all the responders involved, from what i hear they will need all the prayers they can get, and they are getting the best care at the augusta burn center for burns over most of their bodys.

    and to answer about the tattoos, they offer NO protection, but dont hurt. if they live, they will probably need skin graphs and will not likly be able to get any new tats for at least 5 years
