AWA pilot sentencing is LIVE right now... kinda making me sick though because I think these guys are going to burn.
If this is what you think, then you are missing the boat. Hughes was in program after program and the Captain wasn't being a captain that fateful night. They both dropped the ball and deserve just punishment. 28 day programs and this guy is drinking on overnights. Come on - he deserves (they deserve) everything they get. I do agree that no bail stinks and is unrealistic. Just as unrealistic as showing up to work with a 0.84 BAC level.tired_pilot said:This is so sad, but yet sums up the state of the country. Yes they're idiots. Isnt getting fired, losing licenses, and the embarassment enough? They should have gotten bail, some type of suspended sentence and mandatory counseling. These guys give us a bad name but I think in a way everyone of us has empathy for them and their families.
Thanks for the clarification... I was about to PM Flechas to get the BAC to proof conversion.Stick Man said:Sorry, I must have been drinking on an overnight - 0.084.
And 0.84 -for the record - would be 1.68 proof.
