This is an event, it just occurs at a higher level than you consider.

The autopilot can't fix the errors of the people programming it.

In this case the emergency was that the emergency that the autopilot can't handle reliably wasn't handled.

The biggest responsibility of the human pilots is to be human, i.e. be situationally aware, to ask the "Why?" that the autopilot can't ask.

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.

Working...
