USAFE ( United States Air Force in Europe ) Flight Safety film illustrating the kinds of errors that can cause aircraft accidents. A Flight Safety Officer points to photograph of a crashed F-86 airplane and lectures to pilots. He says that most of accidents occur because of minor mistakes. A Captain, pilot, naps during the lecture. The most common pilot errors in USAFE written on a blackboard. After ignoring the lecture, the Captain prepares a flight plan at Base Operations. He fails to check NOTAMS (notices to Airmen)and declines assistance from Base weather officer. He performs perfunctory preflight inspection, initials Form 1, and taxis for takeoff breathing 100% oxygen. After takeoff, he levels at 30 thousand feet and makes position report. Sensing hypoxia, he sees oxygen depleted and must dive to lower safe altitude (where fuel consumption rate is too high). He tunes destination radio beacon, becomes disoriented and calls for steer to destination, which is below minimums for GCA (ground controlled approach). He goes to Alternate, has trouble with landing gear, runs low on fuel, and luckily lands safely, but runs out of fuel and must be towed to parking place. A litany of his mistakes is recounted.
