French Prosecutor: Co-pilot Wanted To 'Destroy' The Plane
As a frantic pilot pounded on the cockpit door and passengers screamed in panic, the Germanwings co-pilot "intentionally" sent Flight 9525 straight into the side of a mountain in the French Alps. This could bother those that would like to be in control and have anxiety about flying. This could be the Titanic of aviation. Aviation has been a mess since 9/11. Looks like the Aviation Division can afford neither the TSA nor the retired sheriff deputies at ACV.

Also, the Silver Lining Restaurant in the ACV terminal building closed this week. This could put a damper on the arts alive efforts. Perhaps someone will reopen, since Aviation provides the heating, ventilation, hot water, stocked and cleaned bathrooms, and automatic backup generator (does the rent include utilities?).

Re: “Wing and a Prayer

What you are looking at is the inconvenient truth about ACV. The CRJ200 cannot get a clearance to land when the visibility is 0.25. This has happened so far several times this month. What this means is 1 out of 3 arrivals were cancelled on 3/26/2015, and thus the 6 am departure on 3/27/2015 is also cancelled. Everyone on these SkyWest flights in SFO last night and ACV this am will be trying to rebook or make other arrangements. I have suggested to the office of the UAL CEO that they considered another arrival time less conducive to fog for this flight that remains overnight (RON), and they have concurred. This cancellation is especially troublesome since it only takes one to cancel a third of the flights yesterday and today—since it can take like forever to rebook. SkyWest does not seem to send us a replacement flight.
