interesting... but i thought of 2 things watching that video:

1) Surely watching a burning plane might put you off flying for the day rather than waiting camely in the waiting area for your flight? mind you i could be wrong!

2) I never wanna crash at a chinese airport! that plane was ablaze for what 5 - 10 mins with on fire crews in site? it wasnt even a moving target! lol

Check the dude out playing golf at 0:50. He's just about to pull out his nine iron when he notices the burning plane.

When I worked in broadcasting the advertisers policy was:
Military aircraft crashes, no airline spots within 20 min. of a newscast.
Civilian aircraft crashes, cancel commercials til furthur notice.
I guess the military are expendable for 20 minutes.
