nekom: Wrath of Heaven: I'm not an NTSB accident investigator, but I did watch Air Disasters straight through this weekend.Check out "Seconds from disaster". They don't do exclusively air disasters but it's a damned interesting series.
AltheaToldMe: Wrath of Heaven: In the case study I'm basing this off of, the plane did not receive enough fuel from ground crews due to a simple standard/metric conversion calculation.HA!! I just watched this yesterday. How the fark did that even make sense. The Canadians have been on the metric system for as long as I can remember, yet that was the FIRST plane to be calculated in Kg vs LB for fuel capacity.The country that uses the Metric system fills planes using Imperial measurements, but when there ARE faced with a plane that uses Metric calculations, they fail. WTF, I said./I have all 10 seasons on the HDD. Time for more.

Sean M: So we're supposed to trust convicts and communists on this?
