Re: Halloween Hurricane
I'm just not following how the Bounty could have possibly thought it was going to get far enough East to avoid Sandy. At the time of their departure, it was well known to be a big problem in the Northeast, they would have needed to get a third the way to Europe to avoid it. Then they must have tracked back to the West to try to outrun it? If they realized the flaw, they should have returned north, as it was then becoming very clear it was a Jersey landing.
I just don't get it and now it sounds as if some lives have been lost. Very tragic. I'm sure there are some decision makers that will live with this for the rest of their lives. I won't pound further on them, but we probably can learn from this as we understand more.
