Though I'm not a partidary of Boeing / Airbus controversy, and being in
fact a little pro- Airbus, I just would like add that the kind of event
you discribe can hardly be considered an accident.

I believe it has already been discussed in this list, but this kind of
event should be considered an incident, given the lack of casualties and/or
major hull damage.

It's very important not to confuse the diferent situations, and speacialy
not to run out out loud what the media says. Most of the times their just
running for audiences.
