Let me know if this is acceptable
On 3 April 2006, C-5B 84-0059 crashed following a cockpit indication that a thrust reverser was not locked. The C-5B assigned to the 436th Airlift Wing and flown by a reserve crew from the 709th Airlift Squadron, 512th Airlift Wing crashed about 2,000 ft (610 m) short of the runway while attempting a heavyweight emergency landing at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware. The aircraft had taken off from Dover 21 minutes earlier and reported an in-flight emergency 10 minutes into the flight. All 17 people aboard survived, but two received serious injuries. The Air Force's accident investigation board report concluded the cause to be human error, most notably the crew had been manipulating the throttle of the (dead) number two engine as if it was still running while keeping the (live) number three engine at idle. The situation was further worsened by the crew's decision to use a high flap setting that increased drag beyond normal two engine capabilities.[104] The airframe was scrapped, but the forward fuselage became a C-5 AMP avionics test bed.[105][106] This incident led to a redesign of the cockpit engine displays, particularly the visual indicators of a non-active engine.[107]

Ooops!

OK, go find the number 15 on a sign. No hand written signs, must be a real sign.

Had a feeling I was in a race for this one.

Next up, a non-chain, independent coffee shop. Starbucks and Caribou will be rejected.
