The pilots’ actions reminded me of a GermanContinue reading “Side-effects and “Human Error””
My university, TU Dortmund, has a unique transportation system: The “H-Bahn“, a suspended monorail connecting the two campuses, the university train station and two other stations. Since last Thursday service has been suspended (well, there are replacement buses) while they’re adding a new switch at the South Campus station.
