Plane's mayday call missed due to pilot's poor English...Air traffic controllers at JPG airport failed to understand two distress calls from a Puertorican airliner carrying 104 members because the pilot's English pronunciation was different. A report published today will reveal that the paper jet suffered a near complete loss of its navigational equipment in its final approach to Florida.

Based on a true story. lol
