Re: At First, I thought this was Skegness

Re: FAO Per: The sinking of the SS Faro

I don't think this was a case of over-reliance on automation, but a case of lack of decision making. He was told what to do, he clearly knew what to do, but he froze.
Been there, had it done to me. Many moons ago, one chapter in "Ancient Mariner's Maritime Mishaps.".

I've already read the report. A Swiss Cheese where the holes were drilled by poor ship design, poor seamanship, poor decision-making, total amateurs the whole bunch.

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

Someone on the ground neglected to remove the pitot tube covers. The pilots had no idea of their true airspeed. The airplane stalled and plunged into the ocean. People died. I'm sorry.
Do we have a winner?

An AT-6 with Luftwaffe markings. It's almost like RuPaul in an SS Uniform, really just doesn't work.

Relatives did a great job, not often they find out why ships sinks. Ships and sailors are expendable commodities, not that I'm complaining, neither wort...
