    1. Who says the pilot didn't know it? Plan-continuation bias can be pretty strong and there are plenty of cases where pilots avoid admitting to a known mistake and continue the mission, especially if all other indications look normal.

All messages must be civil in tone; if critical, must be constructive. This is a place where we learn what not to do next time. Personal attacks and hate speech directed at the NTSB investigators, FAA investigators, Designated Pilot Examiners, Kathryn, as well as other members of the aviation blog, are unacceptable because they are not constructive. Messages that harass, abuse or threaten other persons, such as threats to cause bodily harm, or that contain obscene or otherwise objectionable content, may result in the loss of your posting privileges.
