The passenger(s) that magically become aviation and airline experts the minute they step on the plane.

It takes everything I can muster to not speak up and correct idiotic remarks when I'm non-revving.

Flight Attendants that are industry experts because they have been around 3 years.

Yeah this... Haha YX F/A's that deadhead on us make comments all the time. I'm usually like, "yeah you fly the heavy stuff so you're definitely right about that".

He does bring up a valid point. MOA's are (VFR world) "see and avoid", and if he was not talking to anyone, he could fly right on through, oblivious. Maybe there was a NOTAM?

Being alive certainly trumps being legal.

Not to split hairs, but he was trying to fly through a Warning Area, not a MOA. Right at the beginning (0:10), the controller says "...there's stuff going on in the Warning Area..." The pilot is the one who keeps calling it a MOA, which it isn't.

He doesn't every week though! So he knows better than anyone else. I think the military just got a new target during their training.
