Think about this

Watch this interesting video from a combat journalists in Afghanistan

Average age of a plane captain for a US Navy squadron is approximately 19yrs old.
Average salary of someone on the flight deck is approximately $22,000 dollars a year before taxes.
Average work day under way is 12 hours on.
Average education completed is about one year of college
They are trusted to make go or no go decisions on multimillion dollar aircraft with men and women that flying put their complete trust in the PC to make this decision.
Now think that more then likely they were not trusted with their parent's car which only cost $30,000 dollars only three years earlier when these same people were 16.

Just your deep thought for the day
