The June 13th edition of AW&ST has a small postscript to an
article on p. 31 about Chinese airline safety.  Seems the
thinking about the MD-80 CFIT near Urumqi is that the flight
crew didn't understand the GPWS alerts, programmed to be spoken
in English.

Yeef.  Maybe the phone company should get the Bitchin' Betty
