Ive missed these.

I need to save them all up and read them before i get on my next flight


I dare you to read them out loud while you’re boarding your next flight. Your fellow passengers will love you for it :-)


There is a time for pushing the boundaries and a time for still contemplating. Recently had an operation and the surgeon said there was a 1:300 chance of dying. I nearly asked him how many of these procedures he had done, but felt prudence was better not to know!

Some people think it’s ghoulish to read accident reports however it is important as a professional to find out what had happened and to ensure the same dosnt happen to you. I work in the maritime world ( oil tanker Captain) and read the MAIB reports in order to find out how the ‘holes in the cheese’ had lined up and how to avoid. I get the Jnr Officers as well Engineering Officers and cadets to read them through and we discuss them at safety meetings so that we are all learning on how to work safely and remain professionals.

I do something similar with my lot (albeit lives aren’t at stake… unless an end-user has done something really stupid/expensive!) and it’s useful to go through reports objectively and without finger pointing.

A friend of mine may have featured on one those maritime reports a few years ago. Captain and a few officers went ashore for a few beers and got ‘lost’ trying to get back to the boat. They were about twenty miles up the Banff coast in the ship’s tender and were reportedly somewhat ‘tired and emotional’ :-)
