Good Grief is right, You think he would have learned. I was listening to this Radio Show thing called "Flight of the Valujet Pilots" You can get it off of AudioGalaxy. Anyway, It is funny, and sick at the same time. But I think after the HP incident, other pilots would have listened and learned. Obviously not.

The article says that it happened BEFORE the HP incident. You would have thought the HP pilots would have learned.

I certainly hope this doesn't become a trend.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

As said before by another member about the mid-air collision:

"Now the media will report every 'near miss' for the next three weeks"

Same thing with intoxicated pilots. It's not that more pilots are getting caught, it's that the media is reporting it more.
