My Brazil blog is down (Blogspot informs me it will "review" whether it's a spam blog or not and get back to me in 4 days, as if 4 days means squat, which is one major reason this blog will soon appear in a new, reliable and professional format). Here's a new statement on the scapegoating of the U.S. pilots. The statement is from the International Federation of Air Line Pilots Associations.
That group, by the way, has consistently been inexcusably far behind on developments. In referring to "possible criminal prosecutions" for example, it is evidently unware that the criminal trial of the American pilots and four Brazilian controllers has in fact been under way for a month in Sinop, the regional city nearest the crash site in the Amazon.
