According to The Guardian it's the 2nd of its type for the same airline to crash in 7 months with the first last July killing around 50.

Kudos to the (unfortunately dead) crew for trying to avoid buildings etc and aiming for the river. That probably saved a few lives
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.
