All we can do is learn from other pilots mistakes,
Well I realised that it was not advisable to press on into bad weather back in the late 60s when we had to search for an aircraft that disappeared on a flight from BU to TWB and also saw the results of the C172 that ended up in a mangled heap on a road on the southern outskirts of Toowoomba.

How many time do we have to have "pilot mistakes" before it sinks in?

Flying under a low cloud base in the clear at 500 feet agl knowing exactly where you are is a hell of a lot different than being "position uncertain" at 30 feet in sh***y weather.
