    I can't think of one question. This is the classical "accident waiting to happen".

    His plane's annual was expired too (not that it had anything to do with the accident). :rolleyes:

    Was it pride or overconfidence, when given a choice to divert to a VMC airport,why wouldn't you. Couldn't have been that low on fuel ,if he tried three more approaches. If you go missed more than once it's time to find another airport.
