shockwave 3d lights reflections in fs9 in The FS2004 (FS9) Forum Posted July 20, 2012 Sorry to hear that. Pilots can have thousands of hour, proper training yet things can happen which can lead to accidents. It all can start with something small and can and lead to something big. For example a pilot may not have had enough sleep and in the cockpit a small mistake can lead to another mistake which then can lead to a accident. Being a student pilot I've read about things like pilots getting into imc conditions and believing in what their senses tell them and not relying on their instruments. I couldn't understand why a pilot would not trust his instruments. I guess it's hard to understand unless you would be in that situation, which I hope I won't be. I often tell myself if I were to get caught in IMC first thing I'm going to tell myself is trust my instruments and not my senses, then turn the plane around and get out of it. Again I'm very sorry to hear that about your freind.
