        by flight school instructors who found students who only wished to learn take-off procedures, level flight, and navigation - but not landings - odd, and worthy of a look.

        A supervisory field agent prepared a summary report, sent his junior agent who took the call back to the task at-hand, and that report sat for weeks in the 'that's interesting' bin at the Bureau.
