    Delta and Wieden & Kennedy, New York, go totally '80s in the latest of its creative in-flight safety videos. This new film, which just launched online today, is rife with references from that decade of net shirts, neon and big hair. As the flight attendant goes through the seatbelt and oxygen mask motions, we meet passengers pulled straight out of the era -- peppered with fun references like a Rubik's cube, cassette tapes, Teddy Ruxpin and a Devo hat. There are even cameos of lovable '80s alien Alf, and in the final cockpit scene -- that famous copilot from the...

There are thought to have been about 40 people on the bus. Identity documents found near the blast site indicated...
