Having been playfully reminded of uncle Ernie I went online to try to find the quote I posted above. I failed, but there are a few more which I did find, and which are wise beyond their years.

Regarding the hidden MCAS:

The emergencies you train for almost never happen. It's the one you can't train for that kills you.

And referencing many of my posts above, and why the pilots need to be cut a ton of slack:

Fear is the afterbirth of reason and calculation. It takes time to recuperate from fear...

Finally this:

Electronics were rascals, and they lay awake nights trying to find some way to screw you during the day. You could not reason with them. They had a brain and intestines, but no heart.

A good ending to this night for me. I need to go find the box with Fate is the Hunter- it's been more than a few years and I miss it dearly...
