In a whole other lifetime, I was an engineering student and one of my instructors had previously worked for an airplane manufacturer. He was one of the engineers and they had a policy that the engineer had to go on the first test flight with the crew.

Makes you double triple quadruple check the math.

I was in an engineering lab alone when it happened. I turned on the TV in the room and watched it for hours it seems. They just kept replaying the same footage. One of the 'Where were you' questions, I'll always recall.
Jack of all trades, master of none, though often times better than master of one.
