So I followed the only visual aids I had – the stripes on the side of the road and the taillights of the car in front of me. If the car ahead had gone off a cliff, well …

My 2 Cents Worth - Breaking the Error Chain

By Randy Mains

“This is stupid!”

What wonderful words to break the error chain.  I’ve certainly said it when I’ve been flying.  Like in bad weather when scud running, or doing anything in the air where I figured I probably shouldn’t be there.  “This is stupid,” can potentially be one of those simple, but brilliant, ideas designed to let you, the pilot, know it’s time to call it quits, go home, and thus prevent really scaring yourself and possibly having an accident.
