    My wife took off from there yesterday on the parallel runway. She said it wasn't a pleasant sight.

    Something has struck me that for a 1st world nation, Korean airlines have a poor safety record. Korean air seems to have had 16 major incidents through the 70's to the 90's, including 8 in the 90's which were almost all entirely pilot error and quite a few were poor communication between the pilots. I am wondering if this is a cultural thing?

    Cultural?
    Do you mean, reflective of the questionable safety standards in Korea? Much like Russia. Not sure how culture plays into it.

    I was suggesting a situation where the junior pilot does not question what the captain is doing because of seniority of position and age. And a little research brought this with regards to Korean airways.

    The last fatal accident, Korean Air Cargo Flight 8509 in December 1999 led to a review of how Korean cultural attitudes had contributed to its poor crash history. Following the review, Korean Airlines began hiring predominantly Western pilots and since that time safety has greatly improved, and the airline ranks among the best in the 21st century

    Guess you were a little quick to play the racist card huh? Sometimes things are fact and not an issue of racism but in America what's the difference right?

    When you are operating an Internal Airway company, you are not afforded the luxury of cultural differences in your pilot. Competence and safe operations supersedes any cultural aspects. You just cannot blame a cultural aspect on pilot error or mishap.
    I have a cultural tradition of flipping tortillas by hand, on an open pit of fire. But, if I burn my hand off, I should go ahead and chalk it up to incompetence. Horrible example, but cultural aspects go out the window when you are flying a plane across the world. It is incompetence by the airline, for improper training.
    I thought I heard something about the dude still being in traning.
