Bin Laden plane going 'too fast' when it crashed in Surrey

Recommended Posts

A private jet which crashed, killing three members of Osama bin Laden's family, landed too far down the runway because it was travelling 40% faster than the recommended speed, accident investigators concluded.

The Saudi-registered jet smashed into an earth bank at the end of the runway at Blackbushe Airport, Surrey, on July 31 last year before becoming airborne and colliding with several parked cars.

Interesting, going too fast? What pilot doesn't know how fast to go?

Terrorist pilots don't actually get trained on how to land.  What would be the point of that?  They are called terrorists for a reason!  They even cause terror against there own people.  

It's kind of a faulty business model, IMO.
