Ru16, I think you'll find that the 146 captain in question was a total flog also

I think that comment is a little unfair, perhaps ? The chap in question (PS) and I were on the same intake and I knew him reasonably well. Generally a quiet and considered personality. I never had an opportunity to observe his flying but I suspect he would have been more than generally competent and a reasonable manager in the cockpit ?

From my limited knowledge of the incident it appears that his management of the situation warranted a "good show" call rather than your opprobrium
.
Might be worth a read of the ATSB report https://www.atsb.gov.au/publications...200286_001.pdf .. especially the bit about night, thunderstorms, handflying and limited panel. For sure, I would not have desired to swap shoes with the left seater on that occasion ...
