M.Mouse "You obvously never flew with the man"

Maybe you have and maybe you haven't, but to imply by inuendo that Moody was somehow lacking, does you no credit.
I think that the pax who were behind hime when he and his crew flew into the volcanic ash near Jakarta think he is in any perspective, a damn good Pilot and Captain, and would disagree with the implied slagging off.
Flying a heavy glider took some damn skill and judgement, along with a good crew.
The book on CRM was written that night. Try, try, try and try again, and then try some more, and never give up.

Taildragger - sadly you haven't the benefit of speaking to the Eng or F/O from that flight .
Lots of good stuff - none relevant to the thread of course!

I think you will find that they played a bigger part in the successful outcome than you know who - but one guy took all the praise!
