I have a copy of an article from the December 19 Washington Post that describes how a US Airways pilot refused to take off because of the foggy condition and how he believed that a United 757 was lost. It turns out that the United 757 was indeed lost and was sitting on the active runway. The US Airways pilot saved hundreds of lives by ignoring his clearance to take off.
I find it amazing that this has been kept fairly quiet. Has anyone else heard about this?
I can't post the article because it's copyrighted, and the only place I could find it was in the archives of the Washington Post, where you have to pay $1.50 to retrieve the article. I do have the article, if you want to see it. You'll have to e-mail me at email@example.com.
