Whenever I’m in the jump seat all you see is sky when you get up to speed. Some side front visibility.

A forward facing camera wouldn’t be rocket appliances to install methinks.

70,000 takeoffs and landings here annually? Where did I read that.

I think generally any system that actually shows you in real time where you are going - with limited steering - at 90mph is good.

Like driving at night with all these yahoos with their high beams on, or even worse, the “automatic” high beams, lol. For a few seconds you’re ripping along, just assuming there is nothing in front of you because you can’t see. :banana:

I can understand not seeing the plane. But I can’t understand not hearing it

The noise created by the engine(s) of an aircraft are for the most part behind it. The captain of the watercraft is surrounded with his own engine noise plus wind and water noise.
My guess is that the captain didn’t hear that aircraft at all until it took the roof of his boat off.

Even if it wasn't plain to see before the crash, it was definitely plane to sea afterward.

Does this mean the "Flights N’ Flowers" program was not well received?

I did not quite understand how those flights would work with nobody at the terminal to check anyone in.
