I hope they get fired............. how stupid and wow.. what negligence.

The Northwest Pilots who overshot a Minnesota runway by 150 miles last week told investigators they were using their personal laptops in the cockpit, a violation of company policy, according to a National Transportation Safety Board advisory.
The two pilots, interviewed separately on Sunday, told investigators they lost track of time when they used their laptops while in a “concentrated period of discussion” about the new monthly crew flight scheduling system.
The system reportedly changed after the Northwest-Delta merger.
The pilots told NTSB officials that they had not been monitoring the airplane or calls from Air Traffic Control at that time, according to the report.
~~~
They might have missed a message from the tower that there was a bomb on board... or what if the airport they were supposed to land at was under a terrorist attack... all sorts of reasons that could have been disastrous for the plane and its passengers. FIRE THEM ........ THERE ARE NO EXCUSES FOR THIS .......
