Maybe There Won't Be a Tragedy

Mr. Protasiuk was the pilot of the plane that assassinated the Polish government:
“It’s going to be dreadful, we won’t be able to see anything,” a crew member said at one point.

Mr. Protasiuk was more hopeful. “Well, no, you can see the ground,” he said, six minutes later. “You can see something. Maybe there won’t be a tragedy.”

I have been informed that the last words recorded on the black box are, as often as not, "Oh, shit ..."

Also: I have much more confidence when the pilot is called "Cap't." rather than "Mr."

That is simply awesome.

It's my entire worldview, summed up in one doomed expression of something short of hope.
