Journal OverTheGeicoE's Journal: Co-pilot Pushes Wrong Button, Nearly Inverts 747

According to the Wall Street Journal's Japan Realtime blog "all Nippon Airways Co. narrowly escaped a catastrophe earlier this month when its plane almost flipped over after a co-pilot hit the wrong button while trying to open the cockpit door for the [747]'s captain, returning from the restroom." There are two videos referenced in the blog showing simulations of the incident. The first video is a WMV file, and the second is a YouTube video of a Japanese-language newscast. I'm running Linux, so I prefer the latter.
