Cool find but I'm confused. . .
 
Quote from the article:
Spencer Smith, a retired librarian, stunned magistrates by saying she had been confused by what cruise control actually meant.
“I thought it was like an autopilot that you get on airplanes,” she said.
 
Now lets apply common sense to all this...
* Her statement to the judge insinuates that she is quite familiar with the autopilot used on aircraft.
* Since most small private aircraft do not employ autopilot, it would further indicated that she was not just 'any' pilot, but a commercial pilot since that is the only place she could have possibly acquired an understanding of aircraft autopilot systems.
* However the article clearly states that she is a librarian (not a commercial pilot). 
 
So...
I cant help but wonder what specific knowledge or experience she was referring to when she "thought" is was like the autopilot system on airplanes? :huh:
 
Yup...
Other people's blatant incompetence does indeed fascinate me. 
Thanks for posting that!  :fing32:
