Hi Guys and Girls,

I cannot decide if this is funny or terrifying:

news.sky.com...

Out of London city airport 20 minutes after take off you'd be over the sea. 1.30hour in from London to Edinburgh and your over land? No body noticed.

Anymore examples of odd but funny?

High winds perchance?

But what about GPS and other navigational aids?

They must have indicated the plane to be 400 odd miles off course.

Someone breathalyze those pilots. LoL

What happens when the “flying cars” show up??

Look at auto drive cars wonder if you want want to be 1,000 feet above the ground with no control.

Sorry OP, not your topic but so close as we should not misunderestimate how stupid people are!

Yeah, includes me...

t seems the flight crew had inncorect paperwork - that persuaded them to fly the aircraft to edinburgh .

the big question - is why the ATC didnt note the error

From what I’ve read it sounded like there was a disconnect between the contractor who filed flight plans on behalf of the airline. That means that there wouldn’t have been any error for ATC or pilots to pick up - they’d pick up their flight documents showing a destination of Edinburgh and ATC would of had the same route/destination showing on their end as well.

Just a good ol’ case of human error.
