LINGERING DARKNESS John Croft’s “In the Dark” (AW&ST Aug. 26, p. 35) about last month’s crash of UPS Flight 1354 was very informative and covered many aspects of the hazards of flying an approach at night, but it did not address the danger posed by the terrain on the approach to the runway in question at Birmingam (Ala.) Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM).

MIXED BAG OF SAMS

Washington Syria’s ability to defend its airspace against U.S.-led attacks depends largely on its surface-to-air missiles. Its air force is big but obsolete—the most numerous types by far are the MiG-21 and MiG-23—and some main air bases are in rebel-controlled areas. Mobile missiles belonging to the ground forces have likely been kept out of rebel hands.
