A memorial to the lives claimed in plane crashes

Topic inspired by the members who seem to believe that plane crashes are a joke, a event that should be laughed about.

Here are some recent crashes, and the lives claimed.

Transasia Flight 235, occuring on Febuary 4th. The plane took off but suddenly lost altitude and crashed into the Keelung River claiming 40 lives.

AirAsia flight 8501, occuring on December 28th 2014. Contact was lost inroute to Singapore, with wreckage later being discovered in the Java Sea. All 162 lives were lost, the families not even having bodies to bury for closure.

Sage Aviation, Private flight, occurring December 8th 2014. The plane crashed a mile from the airport, hitting a house. All three aboard the plane died, along with a mother and her two children who were in the house.

Let this be a memorial to the lives lost, lives that some here believe to be worthy of jokes and laughter. And may their families find peace despite those who find humor in the deaths of their loved ones.

Plane crashes are not a joke, nothing to be laughed at unless morbidly and even then rarely and with sensitivity because no. It isn't funny.
