Aeroplanes fly routinely over residential areas. As we watch them fly over our cities, and our houses, it is difficult to think of a plane crashing amongst us. But that is what happened one evening in October 1992 in Amsterdam when a large cargo plane crashed into an apartment block. The following day a number of pupils did not show up at an elementary school in the vicinity. The majority turned up but four remained missing: they had been casualties of the plane crash. How did this school community manage the situation?
