I remember watching this on Air crash investigations , i felt so sad watching it, it was a horrible crash , mainly because the small airport didnt have hi-tech radios and only one runwat, the klm didnt hear the control tower speaking through the radio, they didnt here b'coz when two or more people at that airport try to speak on the radio it just generates static and cuts out, you re-creatoing this made me feel bad inside. :'(
