There is a Learjet 45 with landing gear problems. It seems to be the nose gear door is not working. It is flying around St. Louis.
OK. Accidents happen.
BUT, they had an Air Force C-21 (also a lear jet) flying around in circles.
OK. Why would a government jet interfere with an emergency landing?
So, I called our government STUPID. Why do I make such a statement?
1. You are distracting the tower operators.
2. You are confusing the pilots.
3. You are putting aircraft close together, when you shouldn’t be doing that.
So, you are increasing the risks during this emergency instead of lowering risks.
Would you rather have the FAA taking extra precautions to save your life, or fewer safety measures?
What do you think?
