Humans Learn From Mistakes
Resolving problems of hazardous attitudes or behavior.
I think one of the greatest fallibilities of humans is that we really only learn from mistakes. That is to say, in very few instances to we anticipate problems well in advance of the first occurrence of a given problem occurring. The manner in which we learn; therefore, becomes the hurdle to diagnosing and resolving problems of hazardous attitudes or behavior.
On June 24, 1994 Lt. Col. Holland was practicing maneuvers for an air show. While executing a "go-around" at 250 feet altitude, the plane, a B52 stalled and fell out of the air.
The link below is a discussion on what can be learned from that incident as well as the challenges in preventing such occurances in the future.
