VIDEO: How a tired Air Canada pilot narrowly avoided a massive plane crash

Remember this incident from last summer? We can't be having any pilot fatigue when innocent lives are at stake. This could have been a major disaster. Major!...

Federal investigators are looking at what led to a nearly catastrophic event in San Francisco last summer, after an Air Canada pilot suddenly aborted a landing. The focus is on pilot fatigue, and Canada's transport minister says new rules are coming to ensure pilots get enough rest to stay alert.

"Right now Canada has amongst the worst working and crew
rest times in the entire world." - Barry Wiszniowski, Canadian Society of Air Safety Investigators
