Or your doctors.  (And I say that as an engineer.)

Point made nevertheless.

Hi Steve!

Yea, I thought about that too when I first laid my eyes on it. I'm sure there's one with a medical team featured in place of the engineer pic.

Thanks for the comment! :)

I've worked as an engineer and a contractor, it never fails to amaze me when nieve people think everything should work perfectly,and when it does not, they wip around to look for someone to blame. I am generally surprised that things work as well as they do. With the number of moving parts, basic physics, strenght of materials, and structural fatigue, many machines are running near their limits, but stand up to the most incredible abuse. People, their ignorance, and failure to do basic maintenance, seems to be one of the restraints.

After working at an airport and watching the repair crews pour over their machines, it became clear, that at atleast most airports, the crews really do what they can to keep the aircraft from falling out of the sky!
