It seems so....

Though drawing conclusions when the rarity of events makes data points so scarce is somewhat debatable.

Indeed. We should have more total air disasters to have more data points! :mrgreen:

...with these data in mind, it's not a bad thought to go easy on the "Stupid Cowboy Improvisation" comments, along with my own rantings for measured-pull-up training programs, and Gabe's international alignment on "cleared to land", and the number of autopilots needed for go-arounds, and visual approaches to taxiway (insider phonetic letter of the day) and mucho Et. cetera...

Thank you to Flyboy and Dummy (and Les Abend and Sam Weigel) for your always-genius work.

I think we should be thanking BBie instead. He retired and safety increased! :P
