157 Max talks about 5 ways somatogravic illusion continues to kill pilots, including private, instrument, commercial airline, and even glider pilots. It’s particular dangerous when taking off at night over a poorly lit surface, when doing instrument takeoffs in zero zero visibility and when an instrument pilot begins the missed approach. There’s evidence it also affects glider pilots after cable breaks.
