Night time visual illusion kills professional pilot on finals


Captain Jon digs into the archives for another classic aircraft accident that teaches us the reality behind the theory.,

In the 1970s Captain Jon used to cut out classic aircraft accidents and paste them into a scrapbook for the flying school. Times change, no more scrapbooks needed but the accidents never go away and history teaches us that unfortunately we forget quickly and never LEARN FROM HISTORY!

Now read this very unfortunate fatal accident to a very experienced professional pilot which will help you have a greater understanding of nightime visual illusions and fatigue.
