#21: I crashed my plane… for clout? social media vs decision making/grits and giggles/peace&love2021
We are closing out the past year with some rather comical aviation news. The Trevor Jacob “I crashed my plane” video has been circulating the av community for the past two weeks. We giggle over the bizarre details, and obvious red flags from the video; then changing focus to some of the the darker aspects of social media & how younger generations seem to be creating riskier content to feel seen by their peers. The aspects of those impulsive measures, the world of internet bullying, cancel culture and why we can and should simply take a break when social media turns dark.
