kbronsito: Sybarite: That's why I only fly Daedalus Air.Ecuador has an airline called Icarus. A few years back I was on a business trip with my boss and one of our VPs. The VP and I were discussing how idiotic it was to name an airline after icarus instead of deadalus right next to my boss who is terrified of flying. All of a sudden I feel her nails clawing into my arm on the arm rest we were sharing as she started to panic because she forgot to take the pill she usually takes before flights. She was able to make due with some dramamine i had. /csb
JackieRabbit: Flying slowly and into the sun can be tricky. It can be hard to see. Worse, the low sun coming through the propeller can cause what is known as flicker vertigo, which can pretty much incapacitate the pilot; it has even been know to induce seizures. But this guy was a seasoned pilot and must have known that in such a situation, you never look directly ahead for more than a few moments at the time.
