Should be mandatory viewing for not only pilots but ship captains, bus drivers,etc. I think less accidents would happen if drivers remembered their responsibilities.Thanks Harry.Darn good show. Best wishes,Jamesjj

My brother in law was with the FAA, which paid for his pilot training up to a DC3. He used to say "there are old pilots, there are bold pilots, but there aren't many old-bold pilots. Speed and altitude are a pilot's friend."

Very good, Harry. We don't think of the responsibility that is on the pilot and co-pilot on an airline.

A bit off topic- my father was a flight engineer on C-47s in the South Pacific. The squadron commander would have his plane service/repaired/inspected by the ground crew. When they were done, he loaded them on the plane and took them up to check it out. They always made sure that plane was in A-1 condition! Takes a lot of people to make sure everything is working properly.
Harry, he visited Australia on a few occasions. Said you Aussies had great beer! Foster's, maybe?
