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.
