132 Max tells stories about pilots who made all kinds of mistakes by rushing. He talks about the many bumps his gotten during preflight. He also discusses poor checklist habits and how skipping one checklist item led to the destruction of a new $900,000. He also talks about how rushing radio communications leads to stepping on other pilot transmissions and inaccurate position reports.
