Re: Germanwings A320 down in French Alps

I saw that the copilot had 600 hrs? If so, that's interesting. There's those cases of a super star straight A student who get a B and can't deal with the "failure". I don't think our beloved and very intelligent Flyboy got to his 320 at 600 hours. 630 - but its not clear if that is in the 320 since...

Re: Germanwings A320 down in French Alps

Why don't the engineers just program the FMS to do its own emergency descent to 12,000 or 14,000 or 15,000 or the MEA and then if you get your mask on or its a false alarm you just hit Gabe's click clack buttons and cancel it Yes, I used the word "just" from the arm chair in my parlour but am also ...

Hello chaps. Some questions if I may - Very few photographs of the site of impact but a great deal of the debris field - I can find no verifiable image of the supposed "point of impact". - Debris field is of course fascinating, with many many small pieces .

Re: Germanwings A320 down in French Alps

Return to consciousness depends on how much oxygen starvation your brain has suffered. So a gradual increase in cabin altitude to something like 25,000 feet over a minute and then another couple of minutes to get down to 10,000 you will have very mild hypoxia and may not even pass out. If you go fro...

Re: Germanwings A320 down in French Alps

This has to be a freak swiss-cheese scenario to make any sense. Aren't they all (usually need at least two slices e.g. after pilot fed dog, dog's mouth was full so it could not bite pilot before he pressed the button) It seems like a crew incapacitation event but somebody had to input a command to ...
