MD-11 Crash at Narita Tokyo

Say a quick prayer for the folks on the MD-11 that wrecked in Tokyo. I have a couple of old friends who fly MD-11s for FedEx and I'm trying to find out if they're OK...

Preliminary report on the names; not the two guys I know, but sad nonetheless:

"Ichihara says Federal Express informed police that pilot 54-year-old Kevin Kylemosley and his 49-year-old copilot Anthony Stephen-Pino died in the crash, but they have yet to officially confirm their identities."

My dad used to fly MD-11s for World Airways; he says she can be an evil beeyotch on landing. Looks like she claimed another two dudes.

Glad your friends are okay, but sad for the friends and family for sure.
