Human error in aviation

An incident involving a passenger jet flying over Europe was due to human error. The pilots of the jet while crossing countries failed to establish contact with the next Air Traffic Controller as they were entering the wrong radio frequency. Both the pilots missed the error. The result was that air force jets were scrambled to escort the passenger jet, as per emergency protocol. Finally the pilots managed to contact the ATC in emergency frequency and the situation was controlled.
Think about it....highly trained pilots making a mistake....
