Pushing the limits

Frank Allegretti, a meticulous pilot with more than twenty years experience, crashed his plane in a cornfield because it ran out of fuel. His distraught wife said: ‘Everybody told me, he was the most cautious pilot they ever knew.’
Sadly, Allegretti’s story is fairly common. The National Transportation Safety Board says pilots run out of fuel with surprising frequency, and knowingly push the limits thinking: ‘I’m nearly there, I can just make the last couple of miles.’ But they don’t. It seems that even the most responsible people get tempted to push the limits against the voice of reason.
