Plane Goes Down in Greece, All 121 Lost

In an accident reminiscient of Payne Stewart's 1999 plane crash, a Helios Airways Boeing 737 has gone down in northern Greece.

Flight 522 was on its way from Larnaca, Cyprus to Athens, and from there was to continue on to Prague. It never landed in Athens, and attempts by the air traffic controllers to contact the plane were unanswered. A F-16 pilot who was sent to intercept the plane could not see any signs of life in the cockpit. The plane crashed about 25 miles north of Athens by the coastal town of Grammatikos.

Right now, the probable cause of the crash is either a failure of the oxygen or pressurization systems. All aboard were Cypriots.

If any of the families of the lost are reading this, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
