WB, where do you find some of these documents....
Having read the important bits of this report, it's a bit of a sorry tale.

Ultimately, stripping away all the other contributory factors, it comes down to the individual not being aware of their surroundings and it all comes together like a slab of James Reason's Swiss Cheese.
But if the individual was aware of their surroundings, then all the other factors can line up but don't have the unfortunate result.

I do wonder at the number of redactions in that report, particularly in relation to the casualty's pre-deployment shortcomings.

A very unfortunate case, with lessons to be learned in several areas.
