I'm not blaming the pilot, but if it was real time, then they definitely have a lack of situational awareness...like most crews. Especially if they were on the same frequency.
I'm not real sure what this is supposed to mean. It seems to me that they had a great situational awareness, as they caught the mistake and avoided a potential disaster.
Please explain why you think they had a lack of situational awareness. And also please explain the "like most crews" addition. I'm curious as to your arguement there.
