    We have the same problem in aviation today. Many of the new pilots have no idea of where they are or what might be around them (mountains?), they just "follow the magenta line."

    Subject: [NavList] Trackline Attachment Syndrome - Frances Wright's perspective

    Anyone who was a student in Francis Wright's Navigation class at Harvard (Astro 99 when I took it) will never, ever forget her motto, "constant vigilance," drummed into our heads in every session. In this instance, her favorite example of this phenomenon would be the Honda disaster, caused by an over-confidence on ded reckoning plus confirmation bias causing a misread of a radio bearing.
