Seems to be a case of double-standards here jem60? Maybe nobody personally knew the deceased, or was related to them? You know, like it is with all the other events where gratuitous outpourings for a perfect stranger occur! :O :whistle:

Well, it's Africa innit.[Not suggesting racism, just not many people interested in that region I guess].Had some fabulous, and sobering times there.

And there was me thinking the 'semi-pro mourners' came running for all kindred spirits of all colour & creed who die in the gravity challenged art of flying. Maybe I was wrong, unlikely, but maybe? :O
