Pull Up!

Two pilots and a passenger die when, after hearing the ground proximity warning say "Pull Up" thirteen times, the plane they are in flies into a mountain.

An honorable mention in this story for the worst metaphor of the day:

"It's like holes in a cheese, sometimes the holes line up and you will get an accident."

Remember that next time you choose Swiss cheese!

  1. "The Swiss Cheese model" actually a very well known accident occurrence model in aviation. Imagine the slices of cheese are all from different blocks of cheese. Your job in safety management is to ensure they never all line up.
