Joe Sharkey At Large: DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE WE GO AGAIN

Joe Sharky has been a great source for tracking the whole ExcelAire tragedy that took place in Brazil last year.  Some of Joe’s postings can be found in my link blog, or you can just visit Joe’s blog.  Here’s his recent post.  He has also posted the whole 120 plus pages of the ExcelAire rebuttal to the charges brought against the pilots.

Joe Sharkey At Large: DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE WE GO AGAIN

One quote from Joe’s post I really like:  “The Queen of Hearts at least was indiscriminate in shrieking out verdicts and sentencings without evidence. The Chief of Police, even as mounds of incontrovertible evidence accumulate to show that the crash followed a series of major technical and operational failures in Brazil’s air-traffic control system, remains adamantly focused only on the American pilots. Brazil’s federal Chief of Police evidently still adheres to the inane notion — first advanced by the Defense Minister, Wonderful Waldir Pires — that for some reason, the American pilots deliberately turned off the transponder to avoid detection over the Amazon”

I feel for these pilots.  I can’t imagine a pilot purposefully trying to thwart an ATC system.

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
