Spanair Mass Televised in Spain

Thursday, September 11, 2008
By George Hatcher

Today–18:00 GMT Thursday–was the funeral Mass in Madrid remembering the Aug. 20 Spanair Flight JK5022 crash victims. Only eighteen people survived the crash. The service was presided over by Madrid’s Archbishop, Antonio Maria Rouco Varela and on national television. Only 18 of 172 passengers survived. Spanish King Juan Carlos and Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero will be among the mourners. Ironically, the plane crashed on it’s second attempt at takeoff, and the mass is the second attempt. (The Sept 1 original date was cancelled because all of the victims had not yet been identified.)
