    It has happened before...I'll leave it to you to come up with a mechanism. It might require some improvisational thinking.

    And where is your proof that there was no pilot error involved in this...

    Per usual, I see a near total dismissal the fundamental knowledge of Aviation and US history might be applied...The Wright brothers first flew in the early 1900's and air power was not really...

    Air molecules are fewer and farther apart. They sometimes also weigh less, collectively.

    Before or after we get the side-sonar destroyer fleets with required recurrent training?

    A very inaccurate view.

    I DO have SOME expertise in operating older 172s from smaller FBOs.

    IFR instrumentation and navigational stuff are questionable.

    Yes, Evan, reckless cowboy improvisation could be in play here.

    Indeed:

    "There would also have to be a recurrent training requirement"

    I would agree that it would be good if the rescuers could swim themselves.

    For the record, I have never seen your original comments. Link perhaps?

    ALT, using exaggeration, indicates that they were rather overstated.

    Indeed.

    However, Evan states in very black and white terms that the area had no water rescue at all whatsoever, and suggested a full fleet of high-speed rescue boats with a range of 300 miles,...

    No.

    IFR equipment aside, I BELIVE I heard some things (reports of a radio call?) to the effect that the pilot was in mechanical distress and somewhat desperate to land?

    I often exaggerate to make a point.

    Just having some fun, Mom.

    Sometimes, the tone is a bit heavy that pilots really need to be listening to what we're saying here. Bobby's razz is a little bit valid.
