    Oh, how the "aviation experts" are coming out of the woodwork on CNN. The Congressman has been a particular treat.

    The only thing worse is the "military experts" they trot out for everything.

    Nothing better on TV than the rubber-necker's network today?

    Cable TV is not worth the price...

    Clearly the rocket thrusters and flux capacitor had an calibration mismatch on extended crosswind-base for the ILS!

    :wink:

    Not sure why, but I'm reminded of that C-5 or c-17 landing at the wrong airport in Fl about a year ago. I assumed some careers were dramatically altered/foreshortened, but never heard any follow up reports on the 'how.' Has anyone here heard more?

    The Air Force blamed it on "fatigue" and (shocker) human error.

    This article from about 6 months ago has a pretty detailed explanation of the events leading up to the mistake.
