Cap'n Arrr,
The Foreign Minister, Alexander Downer, said yesterday that on the basis of the "very credible report" on the crash, it seemed the pilots were responsible for the accident.
Downer says to string them up
The investigation also found the co-pilot did not follow company procedures and take control of the plane when he saw the pilot repeatedly ignore the alerts and warnings.
Yep, good enough for me.
"[pilot in command's] attention was fixated or channelised on landing the aircraft on the runway and he either did not hear, or disregarded the GPWS alerts, and warnings, and calls from the co-pilot to go around."
Well, string them up anyway. Make an example of them. That'll stop any chance of an accident in the future.
