A Fresh Look at the US Airways Crash

If you're at all like me, you may be a bit exhausted by the US Airways crash news coverage. OK. By now, I finally get that Chesley Sullenberger is a true hero.

Well if you still have the stomach for yet another fresh view of this oh-so-close air disaster, may I recommend Robert Wachter's take on it?

His observations are newsworthy because Wachter raises more far-reaching implications about the nature of Sullenberger's training and the important innovations made in commercial aviation since the tragic 1977 crash at Tenerife. He describes some of the well-known corollaries between this industry and that of health care delivery.

Well worth the time.
