6 ish this morning apparently. Apparently there was a medical emergency and a last minute runway switch at the captains request to expedite arrival/medical assistance that was standing by.

Oh man!

Ok. Slap the guy on the wrist and move on. No one got hurt and I'll bet he never does it again.

Aren't 2 pilots in DL cockpits, or are the swithches turned off on the FO whenever the CAPT is about to make a decision. Didn't the CO pilots get their jobs back after deciding to land on the unlit taxiway in EWR?

Yes it was inbound from RIO. We had a special rider who was quite preoccupied with his e-mail at departure.

Nope. Unintentional...and lucky.

Captain's Authority. "We're landing on Mike for an expedited taxi to the ramp."

Was he color blind? Blue vs. White lights?

I've come close to doing this with the sun in my eyes. Neither one of us caught it until about 800agl. We were initiating the go around when tower called.

It was completely humiliating and something I thought only idiots did. (please keep the bashing to a minimum :) )

The reason I say this is............ don't throw stones. I NEVER thought I'd pull a dumbass move like that and I damn near did.

Why not label taxiways as taxiways from an aerial perspective so this doesn't happen again? It's easy to mark a runway 9L in white. Why not label a parallel taxiway as T A X I in yellow? Either that or put a big X just short of where it begins...

That's what we need-more X's all over the place. It will remind all the gummers of their eX- wives and all HEL% will break loose.
