    ...to the Korean pilot culture in 1997.  After that, the piloting culture was supposedly altered so that subordinates in the cockpit could question and correct a captiain's mistakes.

    The article also mentions that the pilot with only 43 hours 777 flying time was backed up by a more experienced colleague.  That pilot should have been able to avoid the problem.  Assuming, of course, that the onld-style "the captain can't be questioned" culture hadn't reasserted itself.

    The road to Hell is paved with pragmatism.
