Reader feedback: Mad risk-taking

Re: Crashed plane had no warning system, Flash News, January 31, 2006

I feel sick. First we hear that thanks to cuts, army pilots have much less flying experience than civilian pilots and now this. This army is supposed to be a professional one.

At least when they could take a tithe of every generation of young Czechoslovak men, they had some sort of excuse for carelessness. This is just mad risk-taking with your most precious resources.

The fact is, these young people would have been safer if they'd chartered Sky Europe to go and pick them up. In fact, why not do that? Surely the army could benefit from outsourcing.
