Lessons Learned

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, 
we learn that life is short and 
there is no time for hate.”

—Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl


  1. Were you working that day, Karlene?

    1. Hi Dan, I was working a second job. At American Airlines simulator in Texas, teaching Sun Country Pilots the 737 for PremAir. We had full access to all simulators and no security until the night this happened, then they had guards, locks, and making sure who we were. Quite the morning watching the progress and then getting into a simulator that night.

      I remembered how many times instructors flew through buildings in the sims, over the years. Gave me a chill to think about it.
