The Dichotomy dilemma.
Spent a very interesting day with some fellah's and the YLHR documents, half expected to be bored rigid; and, it is 'dry' until you start to see what's going on. Join the dots and see the hidden pictures.
I'll say this, not for a million dollars, a pension, a bag of sweeties, a night with you're sister and a free holiday in Europe would I have been Coroner Barnes. What a superb effort he put in; he could see smell and almost touch the hidden problems. Top marks, I guess these folk ain't doing the job because they're any where near dopey.
He just couldn't beat the dichotomy created the two warring bodies, both trying so hard to 'cover' the more sensitive parts of their piers anatomies. (Wood from trees).
I reckon that a honest, independent inquiry could uncover 2 essential truths.
The most probable and ranking causes of the accident.
The reasons for the extraordinary lengths gone to by the protagonists to avoid, conceal and obfuscate these vital details and witnesses.
Kudos to Mr. Barnes ? Absolutely.
The approach design whilst interestin' is not where the story lays. The`ATSB survey and the CASA response was a much better read, but a sidebar to the headlines.
