Re: Atlas B744, PVG, Aug-5-2020: triple engine pod strike

Atlas is a really mixed bag. You’ve got really solid guys, some who have been there a long time, and you’ve also got guys with an excessive number of checkride failures who really have no business being near an airplane. It’s the unfortunate reality of their situation, most notably because of their...
