Few Cloudy errs when he writes that the KLM FE was not listened to in the Tenerife crash. The KLM 747 had already begun its takeoff roll when a transmission to the tower from the Pan Am 747 that they would report when clear of the runway sounded in the cockpit. The FE questioned the pilots, somewhat tentatively: "Is he not clear, then?".
The KLM Capt., who was PF, responded: "What did you say?". FE: "Is he not clear, that Pan American?". Capt. (emphatically): "Oh, yes ". The co-pilot also answered simultaneously in the affirmative and the FE did not press the point. The captain was convinced he had TO clearance and thus had no doubt the runway was clear.
