When the Pilots selected the way point change they should have been in no doubt as to their duty to have slowed down, turned away from the Mull and climbed to Safety Altitude as quickly as possible.
- a slightly odd way to conduct a low-level sortie, Caruthers. Is that what you used to do at each waypoint? In this case that would have required a return to base, wouldn't it, since they were unable to 'climb to Safety Altitude'. (5900') I'll grant you one out of three, though.

I hesitate to awaken the slumbering again, but I presume you are CONVINCED they were IMC at that point? Care to share your evidence? Oh, sorry, I forgot...................you won't.
