No Missy. If its crosswind 25 Kts gusting 30 on 16R I want a clearance to land and I will decide whether or not it will work out at 200’. I know, bizarre idea. It’s called aviating.

Dark Knight. Rather unfortunate allusion you make to the space program. There is a reason that we haven’t been back to the moon since then. The program consumed 5% of US GDP, was extremely dangerous,...
