    Could you stay as calm as this Key Lime Air pilot did?

    Point to ponder- Do whole-airplane parachutes give stupid pilots the confidence to operate beyond their capabilities?

    Probably does do that. Kind of a reset handle to try their luck another time.

    Btw,
    I posted a different article on the same incident.

    The chute saved another life. It works and the accident was unfortunate.

    The fact that no one died was amazing

    You late! I was having lunch while you were still sleeping. :p
    Point to ponder- Although not required for VFR arrivals, wouldn't it be better if the controller had staggered these aircraft's arrivals?
