Re: Another One Aground on Bramble Bank

Here's the APL Vanda, apparently twice the size of the Hoegh Osaka. They really should keep a Fortress FX-55 on board for kedging off . . .

Re: Another One Aground on Bramble Bank

There have been some good comments about the dangers of burying one's head into some equipment. I had the problem in the Army; trying to get people to stop looking constantly at the military's version of a chartplotter. Also, if you have the time, check out this video called Children of the Magenta (

In summation, an airlines pilot instructor talks about when to reduce automation so that you have increased control and situational awareness. It's 25 minutes long but a good video, especially if you also fly.

Re: Another One Aground on Bramble Bank

WOW!!! Love that guy :-0)! Love the jargon: "Automation dependent", "task saturated" Absolutely wunnerful :-0)!

Now lemme tell you a story: AirNewfoundland [Canucks will discern where this is going :-)] had just received a whopping subsidy from "the Feds" and bought their first secondhand 707. Mirabel (YMX Montreal) had just opened. AirNewf is approaching above a 9/10 overcast. Copilot, having the con, can't find the airport. Cap'n sez "Oi 'ave 'er", and at that precise moment he spots YMX through a hole in the clouds. Doing exactly what our friend in the video is advocating, he cranks the airplane up on one wing, drops the nose and dives through the hole. Maintaining perfect situational awareness he smacks his maingear down just where grass becomes tarmac, throws on the reverse thrust, pushes the yoke forward and stands on the brakes. His nosewheel comes to a shuddering stop just where tarmac becomes grass.

Cap'n leans back, wipes his brow, gets his knocking knees under control and exclaims: " Jasus, Mary 'n' Joseph! Thas the shartest ronway Oi've EVER seen!".

Jimmy looks out the cockpit window and sez; "Yis, bot look 'ow woide it is!"

Hee, hee.... That's a lot funnier than most of what appears in the joke thread!

Good one!
