An iPad glitch grounded several dozen American Airlines planes - Quartz

Sign of the times -- including many in the press/blogosphere leaving the context ambiguous (i.e., whether it was a custom iPad app that crashed or an iOS problem)

"American Airlines flights experienced significant delays this evening after pilots’ iPads—which the airline uses to distribute flight plans and other information to the crew—abruptly crashed. “Several dozen” flights were affected by the outage, according to a spokesperson for the airline.
“The pilot told us when they were getting ready to take off, the iPad screens went blank, both for the captain and copilot, so they didn’t have the flight plan,” Toni Jacaruso, a passenger on American flight #1654 from Dallas to Austin, told Quartz."
