The taxi ways where altered last week and FAA rules require more than 1 controller in that tower, and i would expect more than one anyways using common sense approach, hey you dont fly with only 1 pilot now do you?
This will cost the Gov a Fortune in law suits im sure….
Government a fortune in lawsuits? Doubtful. When was the last time you heard of someone winning a lawsuit against the Federal Government?
Unfortunately, with all of the problems that led up to the accident, I believe the final report will identify pilot error. Regardless of the number of people in the tower or how things had been changed around, no pilot of a commercial jet should have taken the plane down an unlit runway like that. From what I have heard, the pilots apparently had no idea they were on a short runway, hitting the grassy hill at the end of the strip at nearly full speed.
Expect Comair to be sued into oblivion.
