Airlines go two years with no fatalities – but a plane goes down into Hudson River few minutes ago

When I attend the 9th IMSH meeting at Florida, read the story about the safety record set by the airline industry. Airlines go two years with no fatalities. It is pretty amazing see their years efforts on safety made a difference.  But just  back to office today and head the news about  Planes goes down into Hudson River. This again reminds all of us in medicine (same as aviation industry)  the importance of keeping the vigilance during the patient care everyday for every patient.

By the way, how many of your attend the IMSH meeting this year?  Any comments of the meeting?  I think it is a great meeting.  Not only have lots of great courses, workshops helping deepen our understanding of simulation (simulators), I also noticed more and more interests of using simulation for other applications beyond training and assessment.   I also enjoyed very much  the session of DOD new development and future directions.  Please share your thoughts.
