It was such a relief seeing the photo by Samsung executive David Eun (@Eunner), who like most passengers walked away from the Asiana flight that crashed at San Francisco International. Thinking that family and friends, or I, could have been on that flight made me shudder—especially when I’ve taken Asiana flights to Seoul from West Coast airports, including San Francisco.
Eunice Bird Rah (@EurniceBirdRah), whose father was on the flight, shared his photo showing thick, black smoke billowing from the fuselage of the Boeing 777. I’d like to tell myself that ‘this rarely happens.’ ‘It’s safer to fly than to drive.’ ‘The last time this happened, everyone walked away safely.’ And ‘this time, most, if not all, walked away too.’
I pray that every crew member and passenger comes out unscathed.
