Re: how long

after the first accident did we stop flying all together? or did we analyze it and correct it. during the faze in of this technology, do you think that 1 pilot in the cockpit to monitor systems and step in if necessary. and then talk to the engineering team as to why he stepped in would make sense?

P.S. Commander Dick MacDougall was confirmed to have left the aircraft first. He litteraly abandoned his passenger. Can we stop with the Hero bullshit and start with the Court Marshall proceedings?
