    Re: Failing to Use All the Navigational Inputs At Your Disposal

    Yeah, it's an interesting story. There's a little more "after-incident" detail in the article and comments here. This is one of those cases where the machines/computers/GPS should have been trusted and traditional navigation with its famous "mark one eyeball" was at fault. I also enjoyed the other stories in the official report about landings at the wrong airport. It's clearly a major career-damaging event. The pilot retired after this one. The first officer was able to go back to work after some "re-training" (yikes, that sounds painful!).
