The pride of Air Canada.  Peter Martin was his name.  Retired
and tried to land a Maule.  It's wrecked now, of course, another
victim of a four bars that tried to fly an airplane.  Not sure what
the poor airplane did to deserve that kind of treatment.

You can always tell a four bars.  Unfortunately you can't tell
them anything because they already know it all.

I quite logically believe that Megan Fox is hot,
even if she believes in scientology or astronomy.

astronomy is just another bullshit religion everyone knows that.

When Rockie posted this:::

Well then, I guess I’m all alone in being wrong. Looking forward to the next entertaining bit of flying in a large commercial aircraft. Who will it be?

And I posted this:::

Well things generally come in threes, we had Halifax then San Francisco so lets see what AC does next.

For the first time I can think of Rockie can not come up with an answer. ;D

Didn't Swiss Air 111 followed SOPS and end up all dead?
Those guys were screwed no matter what they did.  A better example would have been Sully going off-script and starting the APU out of sequence since he knew the dual flameout procedure was designed for an emergency in cruise.

I'm sure you could also come up with more than one example of people being killed because the crew decided they'd rather operate with style and flair.  This really shouldn't be about SOPs or not, it should be about sense.  Common sense dictates that standardization can help or hinder and as such should be applied wisely.  This is regardless of whether it's an airline crew running their after takeoff checks, a float instructor teaching "what am I landing on and where should my wheels be," or a formation pilot trusting their lead is respecting the top gate of their maneuver.  It's a process by which standards are set, people are relying on it, and if you're deviating you better have a good reason.
