    One typo error and out come the grammar police. Wave is used once, all the other references say Wake.

    That must have been terrifying, especially when you consider the Bizjet was written off. Sounds like good solid seat of the pants, stick and rudder skills from the pilots to recover that.
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

    Who knows, maybe they even called on some upset training and followed procedure too.
