After the Goa Runway crash incident, Jet airways pilot writes an open letter which will make you stop judging him!
Unexpectedly, yesterday we all came across news about the mishappening which took place at the Goa Airport. For those who are unaware of the incident, Jet airways flight which was ready to fly, due to some technical faults skidded off the runway leaving 15 people injured!
And now, the pilot of the same flight has come up with this strong letter to explain his side of the story and we are sure, you will feel his pain!
Here are some excerpts from his letter
– The blame game
“I’ll be blamed long before any proof is brought forward. I’ll be blamed by the media, by the people. I’ll be blamed by the passengers if they survive. In a week the data recorders will be analysed and then maybe they’ll find that it’s not my fault. That I fought for hope amidst hopelessness till my dying breath.”
– The Frustation
“It’s at the brink of frustration that I’m writing this. Back in the day, an old grey instructor told me, ‘Son, in this world of civil aviation, its best to be a nameless faceless pilot who does his job and goes home!’”
– A message for non aviation people!
“As an appeal to the non-aviation public, believe that we as pilots love what we do and would never put anyone’s life in jeopardy. We are sons, daughters, wives, husbands, parents, just like you. We haven’t fallen from the realm of Asgard into the helm of these metal ships. It takes years of hard work to achieve it.”
