(photo from Tumblr) The landing gear. One of the most impt part of the plane. I mean like, so what if we can takeoff but can’t land. 3 crashes in a week is indeed hard to swallow for the Aviation industry. This is probably the saddest of years, not just for the industry, but for the world. When people don’t make that effort to pay that extra effort and be abit more cautious and detailed, we allow that kind of gaps and then human errors set in. Near misses are probably just reasons for us to credit ‘luck’, but it’s the most irreversible of changes that are the most painful. We can look back and regret, but more imptly, let’s all rmbr these hard lessons to fuel our motivation and drive to do a better job in keeping air travel safer. We don’t need such reminders to work hard, work smart and work safe.

The Boeing 737 is somewhat like the little sister of the big 747. Access to the wing tanks for cleaning/inspection can only be done by small people like me and is one of my fav planes as well. Today, had a feeling that u’re around and I just had to find this and to take a moment to be with it for a while. Keep focused and stay safe while u’re still running through my mind. (Yup, reposting this to tumblr hopefully that u’ll read this one day. Not asking for much but just to let u know that I still care for u and v much want u to be safe).
