Sometimes, an unexpected change in circumstances can lead you into a desire to accept risks you know you shouldn’t. Recently, we were flying into Wichita, Kansas, for what we considered an important afternoon meeting. The weather, which was forecast to be clear, was actually below minimums with low ceilings and fog. When we arrived, the weather was still below minimums, and we diverted to our alternate — about 35 miles away and in the clear. We rented a car at our alternate and made the meeting in time. So far, so good.
