it wasn't an accident

signs everywhere, the place has a history

how stupid do you have to be to do something that has such a history

no sympathy for her at all - she was the planner of her own demise

play stupid games and you win stupid prizes

she deserves what she got because its what she wanted

Situation awareness is defined as a continuous extraction of environmental information, integration of this information with previous knowledge to for a coherent mental picture in directing further perception and anticipating future events. Simply put, situational awareness mean knowing what is going on around you.

Despite the signs, I think folks can't imagine just how powerful jet blast is. Go to 2:18, if this link messes up:

Makes sense to me. I wonder about a possible lawsuit, "you warned me, I ignored the warnings and died, but it is your fault and you owe money".

they should sue her family for careless and reckless behavior

fortunately she has been removed from the gene pool

I wonder if they would put up a lighting system controlled by the controllers to stop drivers on the road. Essentially control the stop lights. Plane enters the runway, turn the lights red. Plane on short final, turn the lights red. Or at least something like that.

We have control of the PPRP/Taxiway Z lights at BFI. It makes it abundantly clear when there is an aircraft departing that pavement to any vehicles on the perimeter road.

Vehicles don't seem to be the issue. Back when PTZtv.com had a webcam at the Sunset Beach Bar, I could see vehicles stop short of the aircraft's ground track and watch the aircraft fly by. Same for aircraft taking off. It's the two-legged idiots that appear to be the problem, standing directly behind and in-line of the jet's engine exhaust.


You MATTER. Unless you multiply yourself by the speed of light squared. Then you ENERGY.

She was upper-50s. Her genes weren't going to be further entering the gene pool from her either way.

No lawsuit. That stuff doesn't fly in the islands.

As others have said there is an abundance of warning signs.

Yup. Darwin is Darwin, and age has nothing to do with it. I guess I missed the memo that there's an age limit to the award.

Maybe he meant to write, "For all intended purposes". Smile

If a member of my family stands behind a turbofan engine at full throttle, plays chicken with a train on foot, or tries to stop a .50DE with a book and die, I'd say they had it coming.

The ability to pass on your genes is how a Darwin Award is given out. A woman in her 50s is a very unlikely candidate for a Darwin Award, she's probably already had kids, or at the very least hit menopause. If she was 19 and childless, this would be an excellent candidate for the award, but she's not, and so her death is just stupid, but not Darwin stupid.
