That's one of the unfortunate things about crashes like this. 747s are really biiig aircraft. When they crash into a populated area, they tend to do a lot of damage.

I shudder to think what will happen when an Airbus A380 crashes. (You'll note I did not write "if.")

It promises to be pretty ugly.

I really hope that wasn't intended to sound that callous...

IMO, it didn't sound callous. I certainly didn't mean it to, and I'm sorry if it did.
