Standards in Russia have always been sub-par when it comes to air travel and these type of things seem to happen more often than you would think. They really need to shape up their safety regulations. Hopefully this tragic loss will draw more attention, resulting in something being done about it. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Pavol Demitra, and Igor Korolev, two great hockey players that were a part of my childhood, aswell as the families of the other players and staff that were aboard that plane. RIP.
