    It always seems that the blame always falls to the guy at the bottom of the “Totem Pole”! It would appear that a lot many other persons are just as responsible (chain of events). if in effect there is any responsability to be assigned.

      Thank you Billy. I agree. Usually accidents are a series of events that all go the wrong way. It is CO’s contention (who are appealing the decision) that there are others to blame in this tragic accident. They contend the blame should be more spread around. The airport operator (CDG) in this case did not receive any blame. Ultimately they have the responsibility to keep the runways clear of debris.
