      What I have read is very odd.

      A fully IFR pilot in a competent aircraft takes off in dubious weather, wanders around for over two hours (IIRC) and then ploughs into the cumulo-granite just a few miles from the airfield he started from. An airfield I have used frequently, and is right on the coast. So if a descent is needed it offers the entire Bay of Genoa as an obstruction free area.

      Very hard one to call - so I won't even try.

        Some of the details of this case make me wonder if there is more to it than we have gathered to date. It certainly doesn't make a lot of sense.
        The mind once expanded by a new idea never returns to its original size.

          The Reading inquest doesn't give any satisfactory answers.
