Terry has left a new comment on your post "Some possible explanation of the crash":
The female pilot Jenny Moala had just 6 months experience piloting a twin engine plane. It's reported she was calm before the accident. Of course she was calm. She had no idea what she was doing.
The media is interpreting 'calm' as 'in control'. What nonsense.
This is a clear case of an Affirmative action pilot killing 14 innocent people by her inexperience. God knows how she got the job.
Nowhere has the media pointed this out. Political correctness prevents it.
This is no accident. It was an accident waiting to happen. It was a certainty.
When I step into a plane, I look into the cockpit. If I don't see a middle aged man, I ask to get off. The women belong in the aisle serving drinks.
The fourteen people who died would have be served by looking in the cockpit and attracting the ire of the politically correct crowd. Better to be alive and reviled than dead.
Affirmative action and Political Correctness has no place when people's lives are at state. Merit does. Experience does.
Let Moala practice her flying skills on her own family. Not on the husbands, brothers and sisters of others.
Remember the facts here before you get all precious. She was female. She was 26 years old. She only had 2,500 hours flying experience. She was at the controls. She was flying in a nation known for its dangers.
