This was an entirely predictable outcome to a dangerous and flashy money making show. I'm blaming the money makers behind this. The pilot is just an
attention hungry show off. The victims were innocent and uninvolved.
Inspections are only as good as the technology allows. Have you heard about the horizontal cracks in pre-stressing cables in concrete that we now know
are not detected by the most advanced methods? It will be the same with aircraft inspections. Positive results don't mean no weaknesses or faults.
I've just realised I know one of the top two experts in a certain aircraft component so I better shut up here. Too personal.
No they won't catch everything. Nothing will. But it reduces drastically the chances of something happening. A well maintained aircraft can fly for a
long time without problems. But all it takes is once.
Actually it has been established for many years that there is no such thing as an accident. Always there is a point where it starts. This was first
published in The Lancet about thirty years ago and has since been accepted by the police. Hence RTC rather than RTA.
I didn't say it was "full of plane spotters" did I? I said I've seen them sitting next to road work. At least two of the people out there were on
bicycles. You don't normally see people on bicycles riding along a major roadway like that.
Can we stop feeding the troll now and get the thread back on track. Years ago I'm sure there was a button I could press on here that allowed users
to block other users posts so you didn't have to read there trolling. Where's that button now?!
It's called an accident chain for a reason. Not everything is the fault of a person. I've seen plenty of accidents that couldn't have been seen coming
even with the most detailed inspections available.
