    [quote user="AsianGiant"][quote user="mjg407"]The pilots got task saturated, they were both concentrating on the car chase and were not keeping a good "see and avoid" tactic.[/quote]

    I still think it's unbelievable..

    To me it's like having 2 space shuttles accidentally collide in space...


    [/quote]not really, you are actually working in a relatively small area, and working in three dimensions, and both pilots are focusing on the ground, so neither sees each other. It has actually happened a lot. The worst Navy P-3 disaster which cost 25 lives happened when one airplane was climbing and the other descending over the same target.

    I guess not being a pilot, my perception of things is way off. There seems to have been a lot
    of plane/heli accidents lately...maybe I need to stop talking about them....

    [/quote]why? Does it make you nervous about flying or are you worried about bothering me?

    No, I'm sure your experience in flying overcomes all the misconceptions and fear that I have.

    It's not necessarily fear, I never have an issue getting on a plane, I do trust it, it's those dumb
    moments that I hate. Like that brazilian plane that ran off the runway and blew up....

    A heli crashed last week here in NYC, it was one of those site seeing heli's....
