For that you'll have to find a former Flight Rated AF VetFReeper, I'm just a poor ground-pounder.

If the Accident Board determines there was aircrew error, and this is the case, one or more members of the aircrew (pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer/s) will likely be grounded, either until they are determined fit to fly again, or (more likely) permanently. Personally, I think the aircraft commander needs to be grounded. My info sources tell me he was the one crewmember most familiar with the "glass cockpit" modified C-5. The flight engineer being trained could easily go back to flying, the one doing the training could likely see his flying days end. The co-pilot is a toss-up, as I understand he wasn't that familiar with the glass cockpit, and he could easily be put back into remedial training. It will likely be a while before we find out what happens to the aircrew, if we ever find out at all.
