That's crazy how two planes crashed and they haven't at the time knew who could potentially be alive still. Although this article came out in 2013, I am probably going to follow up on this story and see where and how this plane crashed in Central Asia

Michael Mazo's curator insight, December 14, 2014 2:17 PM

This article goes to explain the cargo plane crash which happened in Central Asia. For the second time in a week a plane went down and no one knows what could have caused this. In addition to losing most of the cargo this crash also killed all 7 crew member on board which is very sad. The causes are not known but the government needs to take the proper precautions and do anything in its power to prevent some as horrific as this from happening again
