Yes, Asiana flight 214 that crashed short of the runway into the seawall at SFX a couple years ago is a prime example of pilots not experienced enough to fly their plane without technology doing the work for them. There are many other examples. As a bird imitator myself, I have to say, airspeed is the most important parameter.
I have to say, I now drive a car with automatic transmission.. And I love it. But, I do have less control over what is happening, especially when the car is downshifting in a corner, it's much easier to hit the exact right moment to dump the clutch and floor it with a manual car than with an automatic that has a slight delay... Luckily my car has a manual option, no flippers on the steering wheel sadly but the manual option on the gear selector works pretty well.
