"Écris l'histoire dans ma memoire, mais n'écris jamais la fin."
("Write the story in my memory, however never write the ending.")
(13 May 1983 - 30 April 2007)
I can't help to think of the quote above when I think of one of the world's most disastrous and fatal catastrophes not only in French aviation but worldwide aviation with one of the world's most equipped and state of the art commercial transporters: The Airbus Industrie A330.
Thank you both for coming out and stressing to everyone the importance of knowing exactly what happened that night and why. To write that story, (i.e., to make the story known, to make the public aware of the truth, to ask those questions, and also to promote higher training and safety standards so that the ending of their memories of those on board AFR447 will never be extinguished. Not only that, but to prevent catastrophes such as this from ever happening again.
The two Pilots:
BILL Palmer is someone that I've recently had the honor of coming across online and reading the wealth of information he provides on his blogsite Trend Vector (click his name). As seasoned Captain, Check Airman, and Airbus Instructor with a glider rating on the side, Palmer has published systems manuals for the Airbus with Northwest Airlines. Because of Bill's seasoned knowledge of the A330, he was requested by Karlene Petitt to write about that tragic night. And exactly that, he is doing. I highly urge everyone to check out his project , sign up for updates, and read it when released. I know I will be for sure.
KARLENE Petitt has taken an interesting, if not captivating, approach to getting the voice out through putting fiction in front of a mirror and having it shine back the reflection of truth. As a result of her seasoned experience as a commercial pilot with many type rates for several airlines, she has already published her first novel "Flight For Control", is diligently working on its screenplay for an up and coming major Motion Picture. Even more so, working on the sequel "Flight For Safety" where these events will be brought back to life. To tell the truth through fiction.
(If you haven't already ordered and read "Flight For Control" please go to the right hand side of this website and order it. It takes only a few seconds, maybe an extra one to write "Jeremy Sent Me" in the instructions/comments section. Please order it and read it before the sequel "Flight For Safety" goes to market this summer!)
My hat goes off to both of these pilots. Why? Because they are writing the words that were never told from the souls that can no longer speak.
With these words, I present..
