My employer does what it can to re-classify MOR's as ASR's. Who could possibly blame them when the MOR system is being abused in this way?

Surely the answer is to saturate the BBC via SMS while the programme is screening.

Question No 1:

Mr Learmont, please state your command experience in a modern glass cockpit airliner, and additionaly, please state your qualifications, that allow you to make comment on ongoing accident investigations and the competence of the organisations that are legally empowered to make those investigations. ( see recent coments in Flight International re recent Spanair accident).

In other words a factual statement from Learmont stating his experience and qualifications would severly dent the credibility of the programme. Hopefully it would then go away.

Calm down. ladies...

As usual I am astounded by the level of vitriol you girls display for the fourth estate. I know it's very fashionable to profess a hatred for "journos" and "hacks" and it probably makes you all feel a little more professional to express such public disdain, but you're verging on bigotry, ladies. Calm down, lest we all look like the rabid, red-faced Daily Mail readers we probably are.

BTW: "BBC uses MOR reports for entertainment" is a spurious headline in itself. Maybe Thunderbug should apply to the redtops.

Jake

Would be grateful if you could explain how asking a person, who uses a public forum to question the acts of suitably qualified proffesionals, to provide evidence of his credentials, to ask such questions, is bigotry.

Don't know if "media bashing" is fashionable at the moment, but after 30 years in aviation I have rarely, if ever seen or heard, anything other than sensationalist crap, on the subject from the media. So perhaps, just perhaps, they deserve any "bashing" they get ???

Most journos......

Most, but not quite all, journos are monumentally incompetent, and only have a distant relationship with concepts such as integrity, fact-checking, truthfulness and so on. When they comment on Aviation, their cock-up frequency must be circa 98%. If anyone in Aviation, anywhere (apart from airport security of course, see the other thread for that) had that cock-up frequency - they'd be fired.

What a pompus bunch you are! Anyone dare critcise the airline industry suggest they are inaccurate or sensationalizing the issue.

I can tell you from the professionals I know in the media world, they are very dilligent to ensure they present facts, that sources are checked and double checked, otherwise they lay themselves open to court action. Maybe if those airline execs (mainly British Airways) are reading, if things are so bad, why don't you sue these papers/tv programmes?

Because they speak the truth and the public deserve to know the truth.

not much different in many other venues.

i.e. there are pilots and then there are professional pilots


how broad a brush we sometimes paint with

Only just got round to listening to this (which goes to show how highly I regarded the 'report').

Must admit I think it was all much ado about nothing really. My only problem with the program was that DL reminded me a little of Brucie on Saturday night... just a little doddery... so didn't do himself justice.

I might be wrong but 1100 ARS out of about 1,000,000 movements (1.1%) and only a handful of those deemed 'worthy' of a mention on the program. Given that I have to file an ASR for the likes of a simple Go-Around etc and.... well you get the picture...


Also, guys and girls, with regards to some of the posters on this thread may I remind you ... Don't feed the Trolls
