Management, Feedback, and US Air Flight 1549

Via The Big Picture, an amazing animation with audio of the US Air Flight 1549 takeoff and landing.

It’s striking how the flight controllers’ understanding of the situation lags actual conditions. I think there’s a parallel with management and regulator understanding of what’s happening on the ground (or in the air, in this case) during rapidly changing conditions.
