    Microbursts are much larger and way more deadly but yes, basically the same thing on steroids. A virga downdraft usually isn't as dangerous to aircraft as large as A DC10.

    I have studied that Dallas DC10 crash in detail. IIRC they put more than 1000 pilots though the Dallas crash scenario in the simulator without any clue as to what will happen. They all crashed.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Sounds like it's safer to take the bus... And keep your shoes on!

    Go Greyhound... And leave the driving to us!
