It kills me when people try their best to spin what happened as the machine's fault. I'm sure it happens, but it's rare that suddenly a machine becomes possessed and tries to kill you.

Just be honest and say:

"I fucked up. Unfortunately this time my mistake was expensive and dangerous."

At least then I can respect their honesty.

My sentiments Exactly!
You must be an honorable person.
Thats a trait that seems to be slowly dying off.
Sure, failures happen, but all too often its Pilot Error, and they try to blame it on the equipment.

My turbine engine theory inst. worked for delta for 20 years and is full of stories like that where they go straight back to work.

One of which a drunk mechanic buddy took a 737 out to do an engine run up and when the sherrifs dept showed up and chased him down the taxiway he reached the end and threw one engine full forward and did donuts to keep them away.

He did get a small break though.


That birds not trashed though. Do some insp., toss on another tailboom and tgb and its good to go.
