Or it could just be that he got it wrong. That happens sometimes.
What does gripe my cookies is speculation. That all powerful guesswork, supposition is the halmark of unprofessionalism. Sort of a National Enquirer mentality. I heard this, so-and-so said that. What if's. Suppose. The report clearly says this, but I think it really should have said that, therefore...
You did start the thread by asking "Man, did anything in this airplane work." You didn't start it by asking what else had failed (Nor can anyone provide that answer, and the professional dedicated accident investigators who formulated the report didn't find more to add, either). You then provided a link which indicated three minor items were inoperative...hardly the basis for asking if anything was working.
Apparently you're looking for the sensational dirt. As the report is all there is to go on, I'd say you're wasting your time. But it's your time to waste. I won't trouble you in this thread further.
I'd hate to see your analysis if four things were inoperative.
That was not an issue in this case-note where the aircraft was found-235 radial off of SUG-NOT the 235 radial of SPA ! SUG=high terrain (trust me-it's in my backyard).Look at a map.It doesn't matter if you tune the wrong VOR.Rattler71 said:
