Celebrity Feared Lost On Air France Airliner: Pictures

by | 2nd, June 2009

air-france-air-lanesAN airliner on its way from Brazil to France is missing. And to make sense of the sense of disaster and loss, the BBC trills:

Riverdance star on lost airliner

First the shock that Riverdance is still performing its two-limbed frenzy. And then the celebrity angle:

A young doctor and talented Irish dancer from County Down was among 228 people onboard the Air France airliner which disappeared on Monday. Eithne Walls, in her late 20s, from Ballygowan, worked in the Dublin Eye and Ear Hospital.

Eithne Walls is missing. One of 228 people missing.

And if you want to see “pictures of the Air France Plane” missing, the BBC has those too. Well, not pictures of the missing aircraft, just pictures of people waiting for news, a plane and President Sarkozy looking pained.

Is this news or is it just an invitation to look – to stare -stare -stare – at the grieving?
