Yeah, I agree. Seems like we need to start retraining the "assertiveness" part of CRM and show the Tenerife disaster over and over. The holes in the
swiss cheese of this accident are numerous. I could use this to teach many accident investigators.
Failures are abounding in this.
Lack of communication: Pilot to the crew to reposition passengers
Lack of Training: allowing non-standard and/or confusing language to increase doubt
Failure to follow standards: Captain not completing an accurate and updated Wt and balance calculation
Lack of assertiveness: CoPilot not asking for that info
Confirmation bias: Pilot believing that he's done this before, and he should be well within limits with this load.
Failure to follow standards: Pilot continuing a takeoff when an error occured at 30 KIAS.
Lack of assertiveness: CoPilot for not calling for aborted takeoff
Casual disregard for general safety: Pilot for not immediately looking to RTB for an aircraft that is not performing in a typical manner
I would do a thorough review of the hiring and training practices of my airline to understand how this much of a pervasive lack of safety could occur.
