After a fatal accident occurred there, Lawrence suggested changing the language of flight instruction from English to German. He surmised that flying at incredible speeds, pilots had little time left to translate information to their native language. Lawrence also reasoned that instructions in their native language reactions were automatic, allowing rapid responses, which he hoped would prevent future tragedies.
Well, THIS one certainly qualifies for the "No $h¡† Award Of The Month".
