A Fox “News” personality wondered on live tv if it might be the metric system that caused the AirAsia flight to go missing.
Fox News host Anna Kooiman speculated on Sunday that an AirAsia flight could have gone missing because international pilots were trained using the metric system.
During breaking coverage of missing Flight QZ8501, Kooiman asked former FAA spokesperson Scott Brenner if the “real reason” the plane had disappeared was because of the “different way other countries train their pilots.”
“Even when we think about temperature, it’s Fahrenheit or Celsius,” she pointed out. “It’s kilometers or miles. You know, everything about their training could be similar, but different.”
Also? They’re upside down. That must make it hard to fly planes correctly.
Plus they’re probably Mooslims.
In addition, they eat unfamiliar food items.
Too, they’re far away from here.
And furthermore they probably don’t watch Fox News.
So no wonder.
