Bonus Quote of the Day: On Our Hold on the Planet

“One of the things that we forget sometimes – you know, the fact I’m talking to
you now in real time and you are literally on the other side of the planet – and
we like to think we’re technologically sophisticated -- but once you get out
over the deep ocean, you realise just how big a planet this still is.”

- Former Aircrash Inspector and Professor of Safety Science at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Bill Waldock ,talking to Kathryn Ryan this morning on Radio NZ
[Listen in at ‘No sign of wreckage from the missing Malaysian airlines plane,’ at 12:35]
