IF they had done the the ILS this would not have happen but this being said where was atc while this going on ? I bet they never make that mistake again. I did some blunders while I was flying so feel kinda sorry for them but it is a serious mistake.
I have line pilots tell me its happen to them One told me that the sun woke them up .On long haul it can be down right boring and not enough rest only adds to prolem It may be that they do need a reminder in that a flashing lite or warning buzzer every so often has to be reset . How many of us have fallen asleep watching tv ?
Its all obsolete no need to travel by airplane On my planet we chat by telecom. Just another way to piss taxpayer money away. Another 25 years this county will be a dictatorship They just keep chipping away at our rights in the name of national security Tap our phones strip us half naked to travel and build billion dollar bombers to bomb a hut up in the hills of who knows where Its out of control people We are lemmings going over a cliff They need a new airplane like I need a hemorrhoid
