    A Lao Airlines plane flying in stormy weather crashed into the Mekong river in southern Laos on Wednesday, killing all 44 people on board. The majority were Laotian, but there were citizens of 10 countries, including 7 French nationals. The virtually new ATR-72-600 turboprop plane flying from the capital Vientiane crashed at about 4.10 p.m. (0910 GMT) just eight kilometers (five miles) short of its destination Pakse, which is near the borders of both Thailand and Cambodia

    So sad! I flew them on LPQ-CNX in 2012.
