Of course! It's just that would be a great thing for the cow of a global warming denialist to say.

Maybe John Snow was there trying to figure out how to make things go viral?

Would Ivanka or Melania make a better sex slave for J. T. ("Jabba") Hutt?

And don't forget Captain Janeway (probably a better choice than Seven of Nine, who would constantly be pointing out that most things Trump says are "illogical" and "irrelevant").

Here's Bloomberg's report

Quote

As the Lion Air crew fought to control their diving Boeing Co. 737 Max 8, they got help from an unexpected source: an off-duty pilot who happened to be riding in the cockpit.

That extra pilot, who was seated in the cockpit jumpseat, correctly diagnosed the problem and told the crew how to disable a malfunctioning flight-control system and save the plane, according to two people familiar with Indonesia’s investigation.


The next day, under command of a different crew facing what investigators said was an identical malfunction, the jetliner crashed into the Java Sea killing all 189 aboard.


...


The so-called dead-head pilot on the earlier flight from Bali to Jakarta told the crew to cut power to the motor driving the nose down, according to the people familiar, part of a checklist that all pilots are required to memorize.


Killing the power to the motor sounds like a really kloogy work-around!
