The full NTSB report of the Bedford Massachusetts Gulfstream IV crash shows a staggering amount of poor crew attitude that is amazing.
According to the report, it was SOP for the crew to not run any of the five checklists required before flight. They failed to remove the gust lock
handle that sticks up six inches, between the throttle and flap handle. Hundreds of hours of data and pilot interviews show that control checks were
never performed. The crew verbalized a Rudder Limit message and did nothing. There was more, including the pilot flying calling out that he couldn't
get takeoff power, but continuing the takeoff.
This was brought about because of a condition where abnormal behavior becomes accepted over time, and considered normal.
