Harrison Ford admits fault for recent plane error: 'I f***ed up'

Enviado
 
Ford told GQ, “I f***ed up,” but he also wanted to clarify the circumstances of the incorrect landing. He said, “It’s thoroughly embarrassing, [but] I didn’t fly over him, and it wasn’t a near miss.” Ford continued, “Officially, I admitted to two of the common mental processes that can lead a pilot to making a mistake — distraction and fixation.

Obviously, Ford f***ed up as he so eloquently stated. I don't think that he realizes that the "distraction and fixation", presumably from the family situation that he mentions, is part of his f***ing up by not evaluating his mental fitness to fly and acting accordingly. Not the best time to fly when you're head is not 100% in the game.

You don't think he realizes what you quoted him as saying?

That's deep.

Good point. I'm not sure, but if his distraction was his family worries it would have been a better teaching point to fellow pilots to focus on how it impacted his ability to fly safely.

Air Canada and Ford have a lot in common. The main difference is that Ford has admitted his error. We are still waiting for Air Canada to do the same.

Does Mr. Ford have an instrument rating?

I think typical of most pilots, at least with high time and experience like Ford.
I flew late afternoon to KPSP as a STUDENT pilot, after being told (don't ever fly there late on a hot day) and almost ended my short career in a 200' drop on approach. When my flight bag became weightless and then slammed back to the metal floor, the sound scared me more then the drop. I waited an hour and high tailed it back to KCNO. During early training my instructor liked to make me fly to KSNA - where you have to compete with the Big Boys, Corporate Traffic, and Students, the endless tower chatter/traffic intimidated me at first, but it's nice being on a busy field - builds good skills - Someday I need to try a 3 am LAX "request" :-)
