I'm curious...a friend of mine was coming into LA on an L-1011.. It was
on one of those very foggy days.  They tried to land three times and
then gave up and landed in Las Vegas.

The rumor on the plane was that the pilot wasn't fog certified.  Does
that make sense?

And why wouldn't they've been able to use instruments to land?
