@smc There are so many jobs which done poorly could result in the deaths of hundreds or thousands, and as long as reasonable measures are taken to mitigate known risks, I think that we just have to accept death/damage avoidance will never be perfect.
@smc Pilots have one of those job responsibilities we have to trust will be done well — if we get to the point where we assume all our pilots are negligent and want to kill us, we’ve got some real introspection to do. (How did it get like this?)
@smc Hindsight is 20/20. I think if the same thing happened again I would consider them culpable, but I would only be upset if they failed to take measures to mitigate the risk of similar incidents in future.
