Dwelling on Crashing, Death and the Like

If you would really like to dwell on death (most pilots do), read Doug Ritter’s website at http://www.equipped.com The title of his website is “Equipped to Survive” and he talks about escape in water, ELTs, life vests, inflatable life boats, and more. He has articles on how to land on water (but not walk) and numerous other ways to attempt to escape the grim reaper. A couple of articles are really good for those of you who doubt the value of ELTs – he doesn’t prove that they saved anyone, just some factual accounts that showed when they don’t work (which is common with the 121.5 MHz units), you could very well meet your maker. 406 MHz beacons anyone?
