  1. This is the second plane to crash. Guadeloupe. Now st vincent.This does not happen like this in the area. What is going on? Are they buying cheap airline parts? Are they not trained? Is there something bigger at play?

  2. @ Really now? That’s right. I’m wondering, are some people more aware now? @ Really now? People are just being crazy as if they took drugs. Guadeloupe 🇬🇵, Saint Lucia 🇱🇨, Viuex Fort and everyone, do not take drugs. They mess up your brain which helps you and you can’t control yourself. Also take no wine, you will be drunk which will damage your brain as well. We need to go into healthy fruit instead of foods that mess up your body and process of your brain. Drugs are chemicals or substances that change the way our bodies work. What a relief though. At least it was the sea. But that’s why you shouldn’t state things that you don’t know if it’s really true or false. Did others get hurt?
