Here's an interesting article that's worth a few minutes. 

Piper Alpha was a North Sea oil rig.  It exploded one evening 30 years ago without warning.  http://www.flightsafetyaustralia.com/2018/07/fire-and-fury-the-destruction-of-piper-alpha/  The embedded video interview with one of the few survivors is worth watching.  I can think of several CAP accidents and near accidents over the past decade or so where we re-invented one or more of the causal factors for this disaster, just on a small scale of one (maybe two) aircraft at a time.  Actually, the explosion that destroyed Piper Alpha did come with warnings.  The warnings were unheeded.
