Has the AAIIB (Airliners.net Aviation Incident Investigation Board) published their report and recommendations yet???
I'll be feeling quite uneasy to fly SIA for the time being.
Sorry to hear that.
Staying inside your home and locking all of the doors and windows might be best for you.
Sir, I don't know you. Probably you're a Boeing 777 pilot.
But let me state that I do not have "that fear" of flying. And yes yes yes, before any of the A.netters say it again, I know, rate of aviation accidents are statistically insignificant to any other passenger transport accidents.
I'm also not a member of your sarcastic AAIIB (Airliners.net Aviation Incident Investigation Board). I haven't even speculated anything about this particular SIA flight.
I'm quite fond of flying and whenever I get the chance I take to a aerodrome to "practice" flying with an instructor (I'll be getting a private pilot's licence hopefully in the near future). So definitely my "uneasy feeling" doesn't stem from a "fear of flying" to that extent that I might need to stay inside my home and lock the doors & windows.
My "uneasy feeling" about SIA has derived from the fact that there are too many "coincidences" involving a small city-state, its government (Temasek Holdings) owned airline, its "benevolent dictatorship" status and "people feeling afraid to even speak out". You know the fears of getting caned for doing ridiculously minor offences is quite common here. Suppression of information is, nowadays, performed not by the government, but by the press itself. This self-censorship, "willing to defend any national symbol of pride (including SIA) at any cost" create a somewhat toxic concoction.
Ask any knowledgeable Singaporean about the Taipei accident? Majority will blame the "Malaysian" captain! Yes the layout and primitiveness (no functioning ground radar) of the then (previously known as) Chiang Kai-Shek airport in Taipei caused a lot of confusion according to many other pilots interviewed by the media. But the "disagreement" between AAIB of Singapore and ASC of Taiwan is still quite much to my laymen's eyes.
Then there's the case of SilkAir's apparent pilot suicide. NTSB, in their final report, said that it was a pilot suicide. Indonesia's NTSC completely went 180* and said "the causes could not be determined". Rumors were that 1. NTSC didn't want Indonesians to fear to fly and 2. AAIB of Singapore worked alongside NTSC and they both decided to keep their mouth shut.
Then there's the Auckland incident.
Handling of cargo hold fire in VTBS (flight from WSSS to VGHS) and the AAIB of Singapore's "points worth discussing" in their final report.
Recent spate of runway excursions (not severe though) in Munich, Yangon and in Singapore.
No, I'm not an aviation accident investigator. Nor am I an airline pilot. But don't you think that there are too many coincidences with SIA in the recent past which could make some people feel "uneasy"?
Compare the above incidents and accidents with SIA's biggest competitor CPA. Yes some incidents are inevitable for sure, but still there are a trail of worrying incidents involving SIA.
And THAT'S WHY I said "I'll be feeling quite uneasy to fly SIA for the time being". Please note the phrase "for the time being."
