    <P>As flightdeck automation becomes so reliable it hardly ever fails, it is becoming more of a human factors problem. The UK <A href="http://www.aaib.gov.uk/home/index.cfm">Air&nbsp;Accidents Investigation Branch </A>makes this clear in its report on the <A href="http://www.flightglobal.com/articles/2009/05/21/326834/thomsonfly-737-stalled-on-approach-says-uk-accident.html">Thomsonfly&nbsp;Boeing 737-300 that stalled</A> and was momentarily out of control on approach to Bournemouth two years ago. </P> <P>The AAIB cites a Civil Aviation Authority study, observing: "Pilots familiar with operating older aircraft, which had more variable reliability, are nearing the end of their careers, and there is a generation of pilots whose only experience is of operating aircraft with highly reliable automated systems." </P> <P>Is the AAIB implying that younger pilots are less good than the older ones when things go wrong? It seems so. Maybe that's because the exercises mandated in recurrent traihttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Comment-When-better-is-worse-326884/

    <p>Shannon Accident Less than a fortnight after losing a DC-6B, K.L.M. suffered another stroke of misfortune on September 5th, when their Super Constellation PH-LKY Triton fell into the Shannon estuary. Twenty-eight of the 56 people on board lost their lives. The survivors - 22 passengers and six crew members - managed to reach the shore in the aircraft dinghies. First statements suggest that the majority of casualties, if not all, were caused by petrol fumes rendering the passengers unconscious so that they drowned in the shallow water. Apparently nothing had been known of the crash - which occurred at 3.40 a.m. - until Johan Tieman, the second co-pilot and navigator, gave the alarm at 6.10 after swimming to a mud flat and crawling through two miles of mud to the river bank.</p> <p>Reader's USSR Review I spent a month in the U.S.S.R earlier this year and during that time I travelled extensively by Aeroflot.
