Re: Ottawa bus wreck

Re: Flight Report (and Flyboy Appreciation Moment)

Marginally ambulatory and likely to suffer from significant O2 stress at a pressure altitude of 8,000 ft and definitely unfit to sit in the exit row.

You may be close, but I assume, not there yet.
Pffft, I've been hiking at higher.

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.".

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.
