I'm also disturbed with the idea that pilots are inputting data into calculators and not considering whether the output is reasonable. Garbage in, garbage out. One instance noted indicated that the crew ignored what to me would have been a very obvious 33 knot error in V1. When taking off in a heavy 747, wouldn't you think that something like 33 knots would stand out like a sore thumb? Are these guys robots or pilots?
Damd right!

All it would need is for avionics to catch up with modern electronic data systems to STOP this kind of thing DEAD in its tracks. DEAD being the appropriate word.

Aircraft systems have fallen behind modern electronics technology by aeons in modern terms - except perhaps for the 'buses.
