  1. Yeah, true ... I was thinking more about the public shaming aspects; irrespective of cause or justification.
  2. Apparently it was a father and son aboard, so I suppose the family is even more annoyed when they see it. But the title at the beginning of the film warns that any use of the film outside of pilot education, is a breach of the airfield operator's copyright; put there partly, I suppose, for that very reason - as well as to protect what remained of the pilots privacy in the matter. (Yes, shades of Old Bar ferris wheels. We can only hope that our own worst screw-ups don't get recorded.) So with a bit of luck the amateur aviators of the world will be held safe from still more public contempt.
  3. Much better that both sides stuck down rather than just one. That'd be the deadly scenario. And Gryder's message/lesson: "I did not stall/spin it" is as a great take away for all of us, if we can only assimilate it.
  4. If I'd have seen that video out of its proper context, I'd have sworn it was created in a simulator with pretty poor physics modelling. I just wouldn't have thought an aeroplane could move through the air like that. Yeah, looking at the mysterious mistakes of others through a Human Factors lens, at least makes for a useful learning opportunity. What panic can do to normal competence is the joker in the pack of the airmanship game. And it's not, after all, something you can readily practise.

  5. [Mods, sorry, somehow I managed to post 2 versions of this. This one is the improved version and, if possible, the other one could be deleted.] BTW Something that caught my eye in the news report was that the wreckage had to be left where it was until explosives experts made the BRS safe.
  6. Somehow both occupants escaped serious injury. (The title at the beginning of the film apparently says that the video - owned by the airport authorities - may only be used for pilot education.)

  8. At least the documentary is free, SP. Anyway, for a tenth of that amount you could get one of these. And the promo, I think you'll agree, is pretty darn persuasive.
  9. Sure, that's the least we should expect of each other. (Beyond a little gentle ribbing. ;- )
  10. Fair enough, but it'd be too bad if you exhausted your righteous indignation on non-issues.
  11. See, PenName ... you're over-thinking things again!! ;- ) (And the Support team are being very patient. LOL) There are worse things to have broken than your HFA (whatever it means). Most likely you'll never use HF in your career. It's not installed in a lot of recreational aircraft these days. Remote areas still make use of HFs long range capabilities. It's still commonly used in PNG. https://vfrg.casa.gov.au/pre-flight-planning/preparation/radio-communications-requirements/ Don't you have an instructor to put your mind at ease
  12. They're not simply ordered by chronology. (That'd be equally inutile.) There is a hierarchy of order known, it seems, only to the authorities. BTW, this has been the case long before EFB apps came along to make things so much easier for us. For example, by providing Location Briefing which can help with Runway closures etc. . But we're still expected to be aware of other route notices, such as military flying activity. But again, EFBs help a lot with that kind of info with real time PRD tinting etc. As OZRWYs Support explained: This is because NOTAMs are very poorly s
