Hi guys!

Yep, that's sad news... But once again, the "press" (that one should be specialized into aviation, I guess) seems to ignore some basic facts regarding aviation:
With theese hypothesis:
- an airport that has a runway 02/20
- a METAR FMCH 292300Z 21025G35KT 9999 FEW020 25/16 Q1017 TEMPO 18015G30KT
Would you land rwy 02 or 20?
The answer seems obvious... unless you're both in a sim, and quite masochist!
But...  the "aviation Herald" offers us a chart for approaching rwy.. 02!!!
Maybe they got confused with location of "approximate final position"...

Seems like at least one pilot survived, so we may learn what went wrong.
