Reader: Punishment for Northwest Pilots Who Overshot the Runway Is Too Harsh

When you're responsible for hundreds of lives floating 36,000 feet off the ground, the accountability factor is a little higher.
Reader Tom responds to Northwest Pilots Who Overshot Runway Want Second Chance. He thinks we're holding the pilots who missed a Minneapolis runway by 100 miles to too high a standard.

"I personally think that they shouldn't have there licenses revoked. A lot of people don't know how much work and studying goes into becoming a pilot. I'm currently studying to be a pilot, and let me tell you, it's a lot of work. For the FAA to take away thier licenses for one incident is unfair. When you get in a car accident, you don't get your license taken away, so why should they?"
