RE: [californiadisasters] Foreign Airlines Urged To Use GPS For SFO Landings

Pathetic.  When I learned how to fly it was always trust the instruments (and learn that the DG drifts off).  I guess things have changed since then.  Since wasn’t IFR conditions (they don’t get much better at SFO) the pilots first responsibility is to fly the ()*&&* plane.  All they had to do was look out the window.  What doesn’t move is where you’re going.
