    Thanks God that they upgraded the requirement for first officers to at least 1000 hours total time.

    This time it was not deadly, partially due to luck.
    One person injured, one engine possibly severely damaged (by luck not both), and a captain that it is quite clear doesn't understand how a wing is flown.
    And he declared he knew about the Pinnacle accident. No diet Pepsi or four-oh-one involved as far as I know, though.

    Come on 3WE, start rationalizing why it is understandable that this pilot did what he did.
    Careful, 3WE is going to tell you that blaming incompetent pilots is your home base.
