First for the more scientifically inclined, my ID has nothing to do with a car. Vega is the name of a .03 magnitude STAR in the Constellation Lyre.
Astronomy wasn't my realm of study in the sciences because I found it boring, but ok, point taken. I'm more interested in the clouds that cover up the star gazing to be honest.
You're right you won't miss me, you're from California and I've never been there in my life, unless you mean the tiny hamlet of California, PA a bit south of Pittsburgh where I've spent many a day.

but because of your arrogant posture and frequently empty content - as exampled by the replies in this thread
I don't know, if you read here I was SUPPORTING USAirways in this thread and a few people found humor in my little PHelL quip, which I then added on to. Maybe you're the one with the issues. I don't care if you don't respect me though because that feeling is mutual. Once again, congratulations for a non-positive post that contributed nothing to the topic at hand. If you notice, though I may make a little sarcastic/snide remark, I typically stayed on topic... which was that USAirways is an extremely safe airline to fly despite what a few naysayers here say.
It must be expensive to throw down that kind of money every time you piss off enough people that you need to change your name. I think I'd just give up at that point, don't you?? I can find better things to waste money on than changing my name to go piss off another group of people on Airliners.net.

"This is being investigated by the British Air Accidents Investigation branch as a serious incident."
There are many aspects of this incident that are unknown (to us), BUT 3 pilots AND 80 years of experience make an investigation even more necessary. Could turn out to be nothing and I hope that is the case.
There are aspects of every incident unknown to us. But the fact remains that they had enough time to confirm with ATC, lower the gear, get a new clearance, and confirm that... all before decision height when a go around would have been mandatory. Now I've never personally landed a 767, but I talk alot. And I know just to say enough words for that dialogue, regardless of lowering the gear, they must have had a pretty large safety cushion. UK might have conducted their investigation so quickly to find it a non-event that it never needed posted onto their website. And like was said, the GPWS would have been raising hell if they were in any imminent danger with the gear up, so this definitely seems to be a non-event, period.
