Air France flight 447, flying from Rio to Paris in 2009, crashed in the Atlantic killing all 200+ people on board. The exact cause is unknown but appears to have been confusion and/or incompetence on the part of the pilots. They did things that the investigators couldn't figure out why they did it, even after the black boxes were recovered two years later. The airspeed sensor malfunctioned, causing the autopilot to turn off and revert to manual mode, which should have been a minor event for a qualified pilot and should not have led to the plane crashing into the ocean. They responded by pulling back on the control stick until the plane went into a stall, again for unknown reasons. Beyond the loss of life, the incident didn't enhance the reputation of Air France.

I'm not a pilot, but I'm assuming that not pulling back on the yoke until the plane goes into a stall is prob. taught on the first day of flying school, or maybe the second day.

A possible contributing factor is that planes are so automated these days the pilots may have been complacent and didn't have a good understanding of how to fly manually.

The Puppet Masters (1994)

https://openload.co/embed/khdEAXhrEro

mediocre sci fi-thriller about alien parasites trying to invade Earth and the government agents trying to stop them. Starring Donald Sutherland, Eric Thal (A Stranger Among Us), and Julie Warner (Doc Hollywood). Apparently based on a Robert Heinlein story.

I had two kinds of coin purse as a kid: the oval one made of thick plastic/vinyl and has a slit down the side, you squeeze the ends and it opens; and the one made of leather (or maybe imitation leather) that has a spring metal opening where you squeeze the sides together and it pops open.

I dislike change, unless the benefits of the change are really worth it. Otherwise change just makes things more complicated.

the airline industry is said to be too competitive to make much money. airlines come and go all the time. makes you wonder why people start new airlines if there are "too many" already.
