Pilot’s Webfright

Posted by Kim in General at 1:15 pm | Permanent Link

If you’re flying anywhere soon probably best not to read this!!!

Pilots are using an internet website to log secret details of
terrifying near-misses while flying passenger jets. The site,
which is run by American space agency NASA, lists 30,0000
mistakes made up of anonymous reports by pilots, flight crew,
traffic controllers or maintenance workers.

One captain reveals how he fell asleep at the controls while his
plane nosedived towards the ground. Other pilots told how they
nearly crashed into other planes, while some even landed in the
wrong country!!

Each report is verified and published on NASA’s Aviation Safety
Reporting System website. If you want to check out the details go
to asrs.arc.nasa.gov
– if you’re brave enough.
