Blogger’s aircraft emergency account draws praise, scorn: This guy blogged an emergency landing of an aircraft he was in, complete with pictures from his camera phone. Some people are upset.
He was accused of endangering those aboard by turning on this camera phone — a charge Hermanns refutes by saying he activated his device’s “plane safe” feature that turns off the cellular phone functions that might interfere with a jet’s electronics.
Another anonymous post charged Hermanns with “lieing (sic) about the smell of gas burning.”
A third called him “a big cry-baby trying to make a big deal out of an emergency descent and precautionary landing.”
He was charged with trying to profit from his experience.
In the meantime, it’s time to play a fun little game — it’s called “Guess Whose IP Address These Nasty Comments Originated From” (I’ll give you a hint — it rhymes with Mawaska Bearlines).
