Re: The Offending Puddle


There is an elephant in the room that no one sees... pilot error.
FAA regs put the onus on the pilot to know ABSOLUTELY EVERYthing about the flight we are about to take.
Do we do it... NO, and we are all guilty of it and 99% of the time we get away with it.
The puddle didn't jump out and attack Sam.

If you zoom in enough, you can see where they painted AROUND the puddle - obviously a reoccurring problem. I don't know the required criteria, but it seems like there should have at least been a notam?

Puddle? Looks like a nice swimming hole. . . If it wasn't on an
active runway!

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here's a link:

I'm so sorry Sammy. . . but I'm glad you're
both safe. Please keep us posted on your progress home.
