Fresh Perspective on Northwest Pilots’ Misadventure

My good friend and fellow airline pilot, Mike Preihs, forwards this tongue-in-cheek final insight on the professional mindset at Northwest Airlines:

It’s hard to understand how the Northwest Airlines pilots got that incredibly distracted on their recent attempt to fly directly to MSP…especially after a long restful San Diego layover.
As is obvious in this typical Airbus cockpit photo, there is enough going on to keep the pilots quite busy, and hardly any way to explain away their inattention…falling asleep or otherwise.
