I think they really need to focus on getting ATC and Tower-Ground communications beefed up. Money from separate pots I suppose. I'm sure you read the article that the NASA/FAA Pilot Survey is being made public. Ground stuff concerns me the most right now -- incursions, etc. We just had a United 757 get stuck in the mud here at MCI. Wasn't the first time. I mean, how does that happen? Not paying attention, fatigue...?

Anyways, I understand batteries can short out and pose a fire risk, but has the NTSB had a case of this happening? Maybe it goes deeper into security issues that mere citizens aren't to know about. At any rate, I'm driving the next 2 weeks, so I'm sure I'll get the scoop on the transition from the news or folks at work before I take to the skies again...
