Sacked? There should be jail time too.
Jail time, come on get a grip.
The managers son done a reckless and stupid thing though i would suspect it was a common occurrence as the article says the runway is rarely used after a certain time.
Another this that i do not understand her, the person responsible is obviously old enough to drive and there for is a legal adult and able to leave home so i do not understand the reasoning in punishing his father for his crimes.
She must have needed the wider lanes. How bad of a driver was she?
females and driving =SCARRRRYYYYY
She is a women enough said...ahhhhhhhhhhh
joking of course... well sorta
I didn't necessarily mean punish the father, if the kid is old enough to drive then they can take punishment as well.
Maybe jail time is harsh, but there should be something -- a huge fine, impounding, license suspension. Driving around on an active runway is ridiculously dangerous. I'm pretty sure if I started driving my car around commuter railway corridors, or sped down the freeway in the wrong direction, or started campfires in a propane facility, or something equally dumb that would not only put my own life but DOZENS of other LIVES at risk, that the police would have some serious things to say about it. I can't think of too many things I could do that could end up in a bunch of people perishing in a FIREBALL like the pilot was quoted as saying.
The important thing there is "I" not your parents or distant cousins or friends. You, you yourself are responsible for you actions and no one else should be held accountable.
Why are people here making sexist comments about it being a female driver?
It was the decision of, under the supervision of, following the directions of, the responsibility of the man involved. The police seem to agree too - they are charging the man, not (apparently) the woman.
BTW insurance rates are lower for female drivers too. Huh. There's at least one large female-only insurance company here.
The Father is being held responsible, for if he wasn't working there, the son would not have had access.
Thats still crazy, i would think that the father would get laughed at and the son would get jail time
I think it's ground for dismissal when the father allow unauthorized personnel on the runway. Whether or not it caused an accident is secondary in the reasoning for sacking him.
Yes, I agree, the official responsible for allowing access (in this case the father) also bears some responsibility. My point still stands: why make sexist comments about it being a woman driver?
When I first read the OP title I thought, how in the hell could that happen?!
Then I read it happened in the Philippines. Makes sense now.
At my local Int'l airport they would have been taken out with a barrage of machine gun fire.
