Re: The Offending Puddle

Are we supposed to inspect every airport on Google earth before we take off?

Google Earth is great for many things, but its imagery is not real time. Watch the imagery date at the bottom of the window and see. You may be looking at (whatever) the way it was months or years earlier.
Perhaps we are looking too hard to assign fault. The runway is what it is, like the highway that may be in perfect condition but with a blown out truck tire in your lane. You never know when a cumulo-venison will jump across your path. See and avoid.

Jim: Do you think he should have borrowed a car from the FBO and driven the length of the runway to inspect it before takeoff? Are we supposed to inspect every airport on Google earth before we take off?
Persistent standing water and seriously cracked runway is not the pilot's fault. I expect public use airports to be safe for my use, in any light plane.
In this general area, I have trouble with the attitude of our society and of the legal profession. Somehow we are made responsible for things beyond our control. I expect we will continue to disagree.
