One of the drawbacks of an Autopilot

Recommended Posts

It's good they had an autopilot and didn't end up in a large bath.

You get what you pay for. The CA was known within Mesa as a "sleeper" and was quite the jerk. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

With luck, it will help put Mesa's other foot in the coffin...or at least to send the rest of the fleet over to China. Let them deal with Ornstein and his crappy ethics.

>So you Knew The Guy?No simply heard from some Mesa friends who do know him. He was a BNA based CA who TDY'd out to Hawaii. He was well known as someone who "slept" on the job. It could be worse I guess, he could be using company computers to look for porn......

Seems kind of strange both pilots would be asleep, I wonder if something else was going on, like maybe an Oxygen problem in the cockpit. Didn't that happen to a Greek airliner awhile back?


Thanks
