Angry

Go-arounds can be executed even after touchdown, a PRIMARY factor being that reverse thrust hasn't been deployed.

The guy appears to have made a flawed decision - obviously not the first in his aviation career if he crossed a picket line!

Hardly worth trying to defend such people when THEY have apparent complete disregard for their piers!

Well then Kaptin M, how 'bout all the good 'ole ALPA boys that have gone off the end?

The devil made 'em do it, perhaps?

Raw Data--Re:"...American...tactlessness comes with the territory."

Are you applying for citizenship? TC

ATC was not flying the airplane, the Captain was. He made a bad decision. I'm thinking SWA did not even have a definition of a stabilzed approach in their manuals before this incident. Do they have one now? Anyone know?

Here we go again another damn good debating thread that 411a has managed to deteriorate into another "my pr@ck is bigger than yours"
And this guy is flying in my airspace. Yuk
So much for Cpt Prune's sticky

Jane--I personally have never entered into a 'prick size contest'.

I'd rather surprise them! TC

P.S.--Now that's tactless!

P.P.S.--I agree 411 is a pain.

One wonders...
Which part of the facts of...."the Captain s@rewed up",
do not some of the posters here understand?

The aeroplane did not (by itself) overrun...and the ATC was a "known" problem...

so, whats the beef?

The Commander paid the ultimate price...and it should be NO other way....period.

Shame about the comment WRT PPLs. I'm a PPL and have a fair idea about my flying skills, not as good as some, better than others. I've met some real good ATPLs and some ...... who could do better. Perhaps if I flew as many hours as the average atpl I'd be as good .... BUT I know I can always improve. Is that still the case after 10000+ hours?

Ironbutt, Charles has a capital C. As for living on a cold and miserable little island, maybe, but infinitely preferable to that neurotic continent of yours. But I still don’t see any explanation from you as to how an accident such as this can be anyone’s fault but the crews? KaptinM, you need help.

Red face Wien Air Alaska Picket Line

Airbubba and TowerDog


Reference to Howard Peterson and the Wien Air Alaska strike of 1977-1979, I saw reference, I am 99% certain, to another Wien Picket Line Crosser made on the America West pilot arrest thread; besides being a scab, this guy also did not exercise very good judgement: (he was) the former airline officer arrested (and reportedly still in jail) for smuggling drugs from Mexico by the DC 6 load!!!!

then again, what does one expect from those type of guys......
