"For more than five years" That tells me he has been in job way too long. He needs a break. My experience was Viet Nam 68-69 with M-16. I don't care if its a hand weapon to a nuclear weapon. Continue action robs you of your life. Poor management.
Babinsky demonstrates his theory with the wind tunnel. But in real world the opposite is happening. As a pilot I move the wing through the air and the professor moves the air by the wing. Is this apples or oranges? Maybe its fruit?
The Tenerife incident is the signature event of runway incursions. Mostly in the transportation insurance business. It was reference in the "Huff Post" political article. In my center after computer's started generating targets, computer programs were developed to spot less than 5 miles. Under longitudinal and lateral non radar rules one can have aircraft separated but when targets appear on the display you have less than 5 miles and target overlap with the target generator (especially in the way the targets are orientated to the radar site). N204TA points out problems of safe in trail operations but the aircraft targets are not precisely separated by the computer. We had the same air traffic management problems in 1981 as are today. Its called "management embarrassment" or "lack of faith" in the workforce. For anybody that is dealing with or applying air traffic safety references to "body counts" or "Airplanes are not running into each other" is very dangerous. Controllers "control"
