(including a link to media coverage with a host who nods throughout the interview - but finally summarizes "so he loses just enough speed to stall one of the engines, right?
". No! They'll never learn what stalling an aircraft means...
Thanks. I have been having a weird problem getting to the ntsb.gov site for several days (I tried different browsers, different computers, and as a test, I was able to get to the really fun site at irs.gov just fine, so I don't know what the problem was...) but I finally got a chance to read the report, both the summary and the full narrative.
I note that on the "Kathryn's Blog" site of your link, they end the pilot's quote at "I accept the findings." Makes it sound all tidied up. However, in the story at sportingnews.com, (linked in that blog post), the next thing out of his mouth after "I accept the findings..." is
There are some omissions. I wish they had been more complete in the description of the things that were happening in the congested airspace that I was presented there in Oshkosh. They didn’t do that, so that’s a moot point. (emphasis mine)
It sounds like he's still pitching the story that ATC "put him" in a situation, and this was the tough-as-nails, go-down-with-the-ship response that he was forced to accept. But as he's used to talking to the press, he manages to sell himself as the good guy falling on his sword.
Further down :
I can’t emphasize this too much—what a relief it was that I was able to negotiate a contact with the ground that kept me free of other airplanes and free of anybody that could have been injured outside of the airplane,” Roush said.
This is a reprise of his previous statement "I was put in conflict with the flight plan of another airplane.... I ground-looped the airplane."
I don't mean this to sound snippy, but it sounds like he should have been negotiating with his power levers, and not the ground.
I guess the one quote of his that does seem to fit the situation in a factually accurate way, but it helps to take it out of its original context:
"I was unable to address the conflict and keep the airplane flying."
