	Have you ever flown on aircraft equiped with a GPWS????????
	If you did and if you have considere that GPWS alarm are "part of every
landing" remeber that: It's better to be an old pilot than to have been
a good one......I've flown since 1993 on B737-200,300,400,500
aproximatly 800 hours each year and I heard my GPWS twice during 3000
hours flying on those aircrafts. Believe me Those alarms are not part of
every landing!!!!
