They had the luxury of 2 pilots and a navigator onboard, so you'd think they'd be able to navigate themselves around the obstacle that was printed on the map. Maybe the crew composition was part of the problem. Nothing crystallizes the senses more, flying single pilot, when you're the only bunny there to fly, navigate, communicate, and bottle wash, etc. Being responsible for everything, and not assuming somebody else is doing something he's not, keeps you wide eyed and bushy tailed and on your toes: nobody else to blame when something goes pear shaped.
