To the editors of History of Yesterday, Andrei, Calin — I often check out your stories of curious historic events.

Sadly, this story of the boy who fell to his death is poorly written, reminiscent of tabloid journalism of the lowest standards:

  • riddled with incorrect English phrases, such as “receive the contracting wheel”;
  • repetitive, the first paragraph alone uses the word ‘adventure’ four times;
  • the photographs have no attribution links, a practice strongly encouraged on Medium and in all online publications in general.

Finally, the two photos of the airliner appear to show two different airplanes. One has a stripe over the windows, the other doesn’t. (I see now you’ve removed one.)

As editors, please apply higher standards to your otherwise informative stories.
