The Australian Incident  
For those of you who have heard me talk about "the Australian incident" which my employer was responsible for, the final public report is available here from the Australian Transportation Safety Board. While the report is pretty dry, they have included graphical representations of what would have happened on the plane during the incident, which seems to be worth it all on its own.

The program is made by a company that only makes software to animate flight control data from black boxes. And just like Adobe, they give the viewer away for FREE, but sell the animator. I don't even want to know how much it costs, either way.

That's why I'm glad my company does the gyros and autopilots for ships instead of airplanes.

Yeah, that whole "Z-axis thing" is pretty tricky ;-)

Another plus is that 30 knots is considered blazing fast~

Now I'm just totally addicted to trawling through incident reports...
