Wet Landing

The suggestive title has really got nothing underneath – just a simple way to look at two recent tragedies that were attributed to planes landing in heavy, wet and unrecommended conditions. But did the pilots in both the instances really think they could land the planes safely or were they blindly following ATC instructions? Either way, could the loss have been avoided? My heart goes out to all families and friends of both Sao Paulo & Phuket tragedies.
