Fiasco in Brazil

May 14, 2007 at 9:13 am 1 comment

Joe Sharkey continues to post updates on the air collision investigation in Brazil.  Last year two American pilots were detained, and before they were given their passports back, they had to sign that they would return for a trial.  Now Congress (from Brazil) wants into the act.  This thing is turning into a real circus.  Ultimately, it’s the pilots who have a tremendous burden through all this.  When this things plays out (and who knows how long that will take?) I hope Joe, or someone, does a follow-up on the pilots.  I’m curious to know what they have done to cope with this.  I’d like to know how this has impacted their careers as pilots too.  I really hope this works out.  Every appearance is that the government of Brazil wants to make scapegoats of these pilots who simply followed the directions given them by Air Traffic Control.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

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:
