We all get it, Stan. You don't like discussion of mishaps because it's "goulish," as you've said time and time again. And once more.

This is aviation. We watch and learn and discuss, because we learn from the mistakes of others, to avoid making those mistakes ourselves.

You may rest assured that when any of us are part of a mishap that merits investigation, that involves substantial damage, or injury, or loss of life, or that is noteworthy for lessons to be learned, we will become the subject of the discussion. You, too.

We have these discussions to learn, and to avoid becoming the subject of the discussion.

You pop into these discussions with some regularity to call everyone "ghouls," but contribute nothing. What have to to contribute to the discussion?

The NTSB concluded that he could have completed the short taxi with the lock engaged. They also concluded the impact damage to the lock indicated that it was not stowed. The guy was a great pilot, he was also on the older side too.

I don’t understand what you mean by this post, “The ghouls live on”
