I would like to thank you very much for your polite way to point out that you think you are the one who is policing this board for inappropriate posts. You really know how to encourage new members!

If you would take the trouble to actually read the posts, you would have noticed that the post I placed had a number of added details, like 2 abandoned take-off attempts prior, which where not mentioned in the previous posting.

As for the headline, again, a person capable of reading, would have noticed that this was the headline used by the Moscow Times Newspaper.
