Oh, What a Tangled Web We Weave . . .

Flight 188 and its consequences just won't go away. Now we learn that it is highly probable the pilots were tuned in to the wrong frequency and were dialed into Canadian Air Traffic Control instead of the good 'ol USA, which would help us understand (sort of) their failure to respond to repeated attempts to contact them.

Just like that, it becomes an "international incident."

The FAA claims it did not have this information before releasing its findings earlier this month.

Meantime, the pilots have named Air Traffic Control as a "contributing factor" in their failure to land, as scheduled, in Minneapolis/St. Paul.

Hmmm. Are they saying USA Air Traffic Control or Canadian Air Traffic Control is to blame, I wonder.
See - it just gets confusinger and confusinger.
Will this saga ever wind down?
