  2. Spent 10 years in the British Merchant Navy as a marine engineer, then spent many years doing marine engine maintenance ashore. Then moved into Mine power stations doing the same thing.

Best job I ever had. Fly in Fly out from Perth, 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. Added up to 195 flights altogether, with Skippers Aviation. The first flights were with Fairchild Metro's, very cramped, then they started using Brasilia's, and finally Dash 8's. Now that I am retired, I seem to spend more time building things for my sim, than doing any flying.

It takes a physical, rather than visual, form so the crew will be alerted even if they are not looking at the panel. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau classified the Boeing 747's incident as serious and said a report would be released 'within several months' after it interviewed the flight crew. 'The flight crew disconnected the autopilot and manoeuvred the aircraft in response,' it
