    The accident...proves a point that RVSM Seperation rules have opened up small jets to be susceptible to wake turbulence. Originally the altitude separation above 28000 feet was 2000 feet. This allowed a buffer in the event two jets (one Large) crossed paths where the wake turbulence would descend on the aircraft below and the result would be like hitting a small tornado! There has been incidents where passengers were hurt and aircraft hit the turbulence and it "may" have cause damage.
