I'm not sure anybody is saying 'pilot error, end of', those days in the military ended with the Mull of Kintyre Chinook incident thankfully. The flight safety culture within the military has changed drastically over the last 20 years and is every bit as 'enlightened' as the civilian world. Only those who have been on both sides of the fence are fully qualified to comment.
It doesn't matter whether you call it pilot error and then look for the causes or look for the causes and then call it pilot error, it's the same beast. Nobody is accusing a professional flight crew of being wilfully negligent, it's just that some of the language used by a small minority on this forum is slightly more on the blunt side. It seems there are a number of sensitive souls who are easily offended.
Nice to see yet another good thread slowly descending into military v civilian handbag waving. There are some big chips on shoulders out there!
