CARDS OF THANKS IILEUCKA I wish (o ex- press my sincere appreciation to relsiives, friends and neigli- bors who sen', cards of sym- pathy, comforting words, pray- ers and help during my time of bereavement at the loss of my daughter, Argelina. -Mother, Mary Stirber. 9919 By WALTER STOVALL NEW YORK (AP) A Mo- hawk Airlines twin-engine tur- boprop plane bucking turbulent winds and driving rain slammed into Pilot Knob Moun- tain near Glens Falls, N.Y., on the night of Nov. 10, 1X9. The pilot, Captain Raymond Houri- tti, and 13 others were killed. Another Mohawk pilot, Brian Power-Waters, says he was so outraged by the crash that he dug out notes aixl other mate- rial he had amassed taring his 18 years as an airline pilot and began putting them in order. By early this year, writing in long hand, Power-Waters had produced a 264-page book de- nouncing the airline industry and the United States Federal Aviation Ac'.ministrau'on for maintaining what he regards as perilously inadequate safety standards and facilities. He called the book Safety Last and dedicated it to Hourihan. "I was going to wile the book anyway, but I was self- said Power-Waters, 50. U n I i 1 this (Hourihan's death) happened I was just working to keep myself from getting killed." HID IDENTITY Because he feared for his job, Power-Waters said he wrote the book under the nom de plume Captain X and went so far as to wear a mask in a dust-jacket photograph. Since publication, however, Mohawk has been taken over by Allegheny Air- lines and he has unmasked himself. The pilot's comments range from criticism that the airlines economize at the expense of safety to the charge that the FAA moves to correct airline and airport safety hazards only after accidents occur. He says some pilots also con- tribute to unsafe air travel by oflcn ignoring adverse weather conditioa1! and mechanical de- fects in their aircraft to meet airline insistence that planes fly on schedule. Power-Waters writes that (he airlines have created practices that reduce the safety margin for commercial airplanes while saving money. He cites, as an example, their failure to put a third crew member aboard short-haul jets "The increased number o short segments in the fligh day accelerates the pace of. cockpit duties and increase the exposure lo other traffic i lower altitudes and around air he says. He says 80 per cent of all je airline accidents have occurrc at low altitudes and near ail ports. And be adds that 87 pe cent of the near-misses hav been spotted by third officers. He says that the FAA ough to require thai all jetliners b equipped with automatic pilot, radar altimeters, wingtij strobe lights and standardize! cockpit construction.
