Memorial monuments[edit]

Photos of Memorial Monuments show that the description is not accurate. The larger monument is to the people on BOTH planes while the smaller one is to those on the ground. The bench text describes the event and the resulting improvements to safety procedures. Fixerted (talk) 22:06, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Number of people in the Areomexico plane doesn't match in the article.

Good eye. I changed the death toll for the Aeromexico flight to 64, as per the NTSB Brief linked under the External Links. (Maaya 03:36, 20 August 2005 (UTC))

Suggestion - TCA[edit]

Many current pilots and aviation enthusiasts may not know what a 'Terminal Control Area' is, since they no longer exist. It might be helpful to note somewhere that a TCA is the equivalent of what is now called 'Class B' or 'Bravo' airspace. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:54, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Aeromexico 498 articles[edit]

I found these but they ask for paid subscriptions:

Patricia Knight[edit]

Why does Patricia Knight redirect to this article? She isn't mentioned anywhere. The only notable Patricia Knight I'm aware of was a minor U.S. actress, the first wife of Cornel Wilde. -- JackofOz (talk) 23:16, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Names of victims
I don't know if it is the same Patricia Knight, but there was a Patricia Knight on board the airplane. CerritosDisaster (talk) 02:25, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
A little Googling reveals she's not the same Patricia Knight. The actress named Patricia Knight died 18 years later. See her IMDB page. CerritosDisaster (talk) 15:19, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Patricia Knight no longer redirect to this article. CerritosDisaster (talk) 16:08, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

The Hermosillo[edit]

At the top right of the page, there is a photograph with the following caption: "A black-and-white photograph of the Hermosillo, missing its horizontal stabilizer as a result of the collision, plummeting into Cerritos". What does this mean? What does this have to do with the article's subject? What does "the Hermosillo" refer to? That term is not mentioned in the article at all (that I can see). This needs clarification. Thanks. Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 06:31, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

It was the name of the plane. That's why "Hermosillo" is indented and referred to as "the". — Preceding unsigned comment added by YouarelovedSOmuch (talkcontribs) 23:21, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

FAA culpability?[edit]

It doesn't say why the FAA were partly to blame. Did this refer to the ATC who was distracted by another plane in the wrong area, or to the regulations that needed tightening up? Valetude (talk) 15:37, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
