June 2009 is turning out to be a terrible month for the Airbus line of planes. Just 30 days after an AirFrance Airbus A330-200 went down in the Atlantic Ocean, a Yemenia Airbus 310 went down in the Indian Ocean. Apparently, there were about 150 passengers on the flight, which went down while trying to land in bad weather at the island nation of Comoros. I’m sure conspiracy theories will be running rampant, as this is the second Airbus plane crash in less than a month.
