Wow I never thought it was this common.


Wow, I’m really in shock by this. So many problems in such a small time frame.😬

I’m not sure this is entirely necessary as those who want can just head over to avherald to find this information instead of copying and pasting it onto the IFC. I’ll leave up to @DeerCrusher to say whether it should stay or not.

This is something Max has done for years. Kind of like his signature type of topic. I don’t mind it. 🙂


I find this incident interesting:


Loss of separation and loss of situational awareness. Not monitoring instruments/MFDs.

They would’ve been ghosted in IF.

Worth a read
