The tools are the strobe nazis not the people protecting their passengers and crew. Here's a thought, instead of jamming up the radios with your stupid anti-safety comments, look away instead.

Chewbacca was babbling on guard over Western PA last night. Can't believe Han tolerates it.

Could have been a beacon with the red cover missing? Ive seen this before. Crew didnt have the strobes on, but sure looked like it! They knew because it was deferred. Everyone else, well it just sucked till it was time to blast off

Just to be clear:


taxiing around with strobes on because you forgot: semi-toolish, but it happens.

On/crossing a runway with strobes on: excellent idea, and usually complies with company procedures.

Complaining on an Internet forum about someone on a runway/crossing a runway with their strobes on: TOTD
