Yes I believe you are right. Unfortunately many of this accidents have to do with the pressure of the passengers or inexperienced crew over the Captain, assuming the Captain knew what he was doing. On these democratic days it is not easy or popular to act like a dictator and when everybody says to do the wrong thing it is hard to do the right thing against everybody specially if they are paying. I am not saying that it happened here, but it would not be the first time.

a big hug to you.

Thanks Paulo. It's good to be back around. This place makes me happy - precisely because of cool people like you. I appreciate the hug, but let's not hold it too long. People will talk.
