I read the story about the plane crash this morning. Sounds as if the pilot survived the crash, but couldn't escape the cockpit. Sad indeed.

Sad news -? About time they found that lost British submarine.

The guys in the submarine survived the sinking. Horrible. Knowing a cold, dark, suffocating death is coming. Just horrible.
