Freescale has confirmed what I heard on local news a couple days ago. They announced in this release that 20 of their employees were on that flight.
For those that don't know, Freescale is the creation of its parent company, Motorola. I have been a massive supporter of theirs for decades, and long before Freescale existed, and were just called the Motorola CPU division.
This is a very sad day for me, but I cannot even imagine what the people and families of Freescale must be going through.
My heart goes out to everyone involved.
I don't really know what else to say about it. It's too stunning to really put into words properly.
