...more details.

Safety, actually was a factor, giving Boeing an(other) exception.

"He said it was "sobering" to think they were probably about five seconds away from hitting the water." :shock:

Sounds to me like either the aircraft hit an unlikely “air pocket” at that low altitude or that the pilots retracted too much flaps for the speed they were flying. The fact that the aircraft continued to fly 4-5 hours to reach San Francisco tells me that there was nothing wrong with the aircraft, but perhaps, the problem with pilot error. :wink:

Definitely not, as he is kept away from large planes and over large body of water at the moment! :wink:

I found Bafidi herding his goats. He is excellent goat herder and his goats have taught him to speak Turkish too.
