TOTAL DISASTER HEADLINE COWBOYS PROCEDURES ITJUSTNEVERENDS

Postby 3WE » Sat Aug 04, 2018 10:04 pm

In case a link goes bad, the headline reads "Delta Plane Turns on to Closed Taxiway"

https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/df479625-1 ... losed.html

Where do we start?

Thanks media for this critical news (and for Yay who who has me profiled as reading much aviation drivel.) (And hopefully the forum will all click the link in time to see the architecturally wonderful Detroit control tower in as background clutter.)

More cowboy airmanship, and I certainly hope that beatings are in order.

Maybe we don't need phugoid training- but as always, we need more training and better screening.

Shouldn't TOPMS revert into TDSOLTWA (Taxi Directions Sort Of Like The Waze App) and prevent these near death experiences and crimes to humanity?

Is it about time to put THIS airline on no-fly lists?

Where's the obligatory interview with the passenger who heard prayers and screams and thought "oh my god, we're all going to die!"? Or the witnesses who saw the airplane on fire before it cra... entered the wrong taxiway? :(

Can't, I'm too distracted and traumatised by the cut-offnedness of the wheels and the obstruction by the airbridge.

I like how neither DTW airport, nor Detroit Free Press seem to know if this was a mainline or a conx flight. And yet, some will still tell "us" to trust the media because Trump is bad.
