Re: Салли кто?

I am very concerned as Evan reports that they briefly leveled at 700 feet. Is that a type specific procedure? I thought it was all cowboy improvisation when pilots choose a not_airport for a forced landing.

Everyone else got that Cervantes reference was NOT re Bonin, right? I have no idea what everyone else's interpretation was. However, Bonin was not_my first choice and (mild speculation) I think Gabieeee may have thought similarly. The other question is if you were surprised at the response. I guess...

Re: CAP

Maybe, maybe not. Society trains women to care about their appearance, so one thinks about it differently. It can be a sign of identifying with the role and taking it seriously, for example. (Arguably society also trains women to care less, or perhaps men to care more, about symbols and regalia and...

Of note: The winds didn't look hat extreme, and aircraft heading & such seemed pretty stable- almost as though he got the wrong visual message that told him to go here, not_there (which unfortunately was not_runway).

Re: Advertent IFR into VMC

A very accurate title, too.

Cool “incident”... much foreground clutter. :lol:

We’re they able to brief on the approach that they’d break out at the threshold, rather than an altitude?

AND, it ended by CFIT as these things usually do.
