Carbon Monoxide poisening

You will no doubt know that CO poisoning has come to the fore again following the AAIB report on the Piper accident down in the Channel Islands. CAA and LAA are highlighting the dangers, in fact we have a piece in the next (April) magazine.
Anyway, last night I came across a very interesting interview on a US programme called In the Hangar, about a guy who crashed a Mooney on a night flight in winter due to CO poisoning. It is a really good insight into the effects of CO and how they can easily be misinterpreted, even by very experienced pilots. Worth a look I think, and certainly worth buying a digital CO monitor for your aircraft.
