Re: FedEx MD-11 crash at Narita- Smithsonian Channel

Happened to catch the Smithsonian Channel's show on the FedEx Narita crash- and noticed a large number of interesting, insidious contributing factors that were not really highlighted in our parlour talk nor my reading comprehension: It was very windy and gusty, but with relatively little crosswind c...

Re: Turbulent Landing

***Stabilized approach*** What is a stabilized approach? That you were not grossly high and fast and behind on duties and checklists but instead are within a good range of height and speed for most of the approach (or at a declared ‘safety point’)? OR Rock solid, minimally deviating airspeed, attit...

Re: Turbulent Landing

Absolutely tremendous job by the crew, all kidding aside. Yes, very impressive. But it does beg the question - why - surely that amount of movement and buffeting calls for another go once it has died down a bit. No. Upon further thought, there tend to be scientifically inspired operational limits t...

1. "Yes" and "Like"

2. General rule: Winds become less turbulent closer to the ground.

3. Among the worst in terms of approach, but a perfectly acceptable, nice touchdown and roll out.

Ah, I think I understand now. I'm going to adopt Evan's "solve all problems by making rules" philosophy and propose that a "no left turn" sign be posted at the appropriate location beside runway 11. Indeed ; however, it must be cryptic so as to not allow the pilots to think fundamentally. Maybe som...

Re: Squid lures 737 into sea.

Hmmm....perhaps this is the rare failure of the left main shimmy damper?

Hearing about this on the radio did not do it justice...it does seem a bit close to a near-total air disaster...planes are often not that good at off-roading.
