as seen in...

alright, i have to admit
to feeling a tad conceited
writing a
'as seen in'
but i just wanted to share,
since this has been a year and a half in limbo,
inspired by real events aboutttttt 6 1/2 years ago.

plus i thought it appropriate for a life list wednesday post,
since a couple of items on my list
revolve around being published.

i wrote a story that appears in the aopa 
(aircraft owners and pilots association)
pilot magazine, in the january 2011 edition.
it's part of the series
'never again',
a compilation of scary situations and close calls,
written by pilots.
the point is, let's learn from each other's mistakes, 
so we don't have to make them ourselves.

so if you follow this link, 
you can read a harrowing tale 
and a plea to pilots, to know
WHERE and HOW to adjust your GPS settings,
and how we should focus on surroundings and not electronics,
during a night flight. while traversing an ominous mountain range. in jarring turbulence.
hanging off the edge of your seat yet?

Some old airport geezer tracked you down and left a message on the answering machine saying "just turn off the GPS and follow the traffic lights" - Duh? I wish I'd have answered to tell him he was a "Dim Bulb" himself.

I guess the whole point is to get us pilots thinking. It worked!


food for thought.
