CJ, tis better to leave a discussion bruised and battered but wiser, than feeling smug but living in ignorance.
We all have things to learn, no one knows it all as much as they may claim to.

More "Sheer Bad Luck"

A woman died after getting trapped in an airing cupboard while on holiday, an inquest has heard.

Mr Pritchard Jones said: "It was sheer bad luck that the knob disintegrated while Mrs Isherwood was in the cupboard."

Same coroner. ref BBC news ...uk-wales-north-west-wales-44538699

Now that's a true case of 'sheer bad-luckitis'

Going IMC is an option/choice to take by the PIC, whilst in VFR........

In any case, if that action is taken, it is a 'criminal act' & against basic Airmanship

Some people get up to some strange things whilst in the holiday mood eh? No mention of the recuperating partner after such injuries!
