From the article : "Hill was still planning for the future, flying
home after a three-day flight simulator course in Miami, where he'd
practised emergency landing techniques in case a jet engine burst into
flames."

Those journalists can't help themselves, can they. Even a story
about a bankrupt airline has to have mythical engines bursting into
flames. Sheesh!


The writing in that article was pretty shoddy all around, IMNSHO. Apart
from the HTML formatting errors - all those extra question marks - the
article seemed pretty cliched (flaming engines & all) and awkward.

I don't know anything about the Toronto Star, but I hope the rest of their
writing is better than this example!
