Let's be honest guys- This flight never should have been permitted to depart terra firma - dismal airmanship, regardless of your language proficiency.
Pure unadulterated horse hockey.
A more appropriate headline would have been "Air freighter flown into the ground from FL 330" What happened to maintain aircraft control and aviate, communicate and navigate?
As the Marines say- "You fight the war with what you have, not what you would like to have". Flew a SEA combat tour in the F-105 and until the F-4E came along it was the best we had.
Dude, you need to do a 360 and get out of that thunderstorm you are stuck in.
