Re: Turbulent Landing

Absolutely tremendous job by the crew, all kidding aside.

Maybe a translation issue. I imagine it is for making sure that the crew member knocking on the cockpit door is not in the undesired company of a baddie. It was exactly that. What would be the correct term? We would call it " portero visor ", translate that! :D Translation of portero visor would be...

Re: Cirrus ==> Pilot incapacitation?

Not thoroughly reading original posts and their links? Not that I don't routinely skip links myself.
It seems that not carefully enough,

In any event, Flying also had it as 15K and then made it 19K,

Re: Cirrus ==> Pilot incapacitation?

Ok, our brill-yunt popular press said something about 15K which, I THINK, on average means generally functional, but with impaired judgement... If you mean Flying mag, it HAD it as 15K, then ammended it to 19K, Plus, F-16s intercepted the plane and reported that "the only person on board the Cirrus...

Loss of O2 seems a tad unlikely. Or does it? The aircraft, flying at 19,000 feet. The North American Air Defense Command scrambled F-16s from Ellington Field near Houston last night to evaluate the situation while the Cirrus was still airborne. The NORAD pilots reported the only person on board the...

It became a fatal accident: One of the passenger died in the hospital due to the injuries 2 weeks after the crash.

Today the CBC's reporting that the operator certificate's been pulled. A few days ago they were also saying that it took the pax 30 minutes to get the exit door open, which if true raises quite a few eyebrows. Also it seems they ploughed in sideways, which is rather curious. Most of the scenarios I...

Let L-410 in Russia crashed shortly before landing . So that one's interesting... according to today's update the event began 14 seconds before the command to enter reverse.

Re: Smithsonian Channel Air Disasters- Atlantic Airways 670, BAE 146 Overrun.

So it was pilot error. There were several pilot errors here: - Misdiagnosed why the pane wasn't braking. - Locked the brakes (the report doesn't say it directly, but it seems from the systems and procedures description that activating the emergency brake enables the brakes to be fed by a reserve el...

Re: Smithsonian Channel Air Disasters- Atlantic Airways 670, BAE 146 Overrun.

I rest my case. The commander noticed that the aircraft was not decelerating as expected. He did not associate this with the fault in the spoilers and assumed that the problem was due to a fault in the brakes. He therefore applied the emergency brakes. The flight crew got information that both lift ...

Re: Smithsonian Channel Air Disasters- Atlantic Airways 670, BAE 146 Overrun.

if the discussion is this crash, then the misdiagnosis of brake failure is not particularly valid. Just a reminder that for this crash, there was not a misdiagnosis.
Why not? What I was saying is that exactly the opposite is a possibility.
