As with I am sure most here, my initial thoughts are for the families concerned. My second thoughts concern some of the decisions made that night. My third thoughts stem from some of the revelations...

Oh, like most here I understand financial reality. The divorce rate and child support arrangements are almost a given frankly. It's part of the way of life in the pilot's world for various reasons....

Of course nobody does it on purpose. And of course we've all messed up at one time or another. However, there really are some fundamental errors that nobody at the sharp end should make. Changing...

Not beyond possibility for sure. But staying on the right freq for where you are is pretty fundamantal really. Why in hell would you change comms while still on approach?

Even in the 'old' days, the rules were simple. If you're drinking, don't wear the uniform and don't go anywhere near an aircraft.

God there are some fools posting here. As above, I've been 'hit' a number of times now, and I'm sure others have. To say it's somehow OK because no crash has been caused to date is simply insane. At...
