Re: An-148 down

Thank you for that insight. (AND the cool acronyms!)
If it lands upright (and with the gear extended, hopefully), it senses WOW. If it lands upside down... does it sense MOM?
I heard that they end with the Turbine Inlet Temperature up.

From a pure thrust perspective you could probably get away with two, although there are a number of reasons not to. (e.g. rudder authority

Re: Aerosucre B-727 crash

Tailwind... That is all Yup, pretty much. 4 knots of tailwind explains it all. So let's get this straight: The only reason why an airplane that should have been able to achieve 35 ft over the departure end of the runway after loosing an engine at V1, didn't loose any engine and achieved 0 ft over t...

Re: FedEx MD-11 crash at Narita

You forgot the landing gear spar-fused design. No I didn't. Put someone else's landing gear and wing spar on there and you still very likely have smoking piles of airplane parts strewn down a runway... Sure, maybe a better outcome for the pilots and some of the packages, but I mostly see your gear ...

Re: Turbulent Landing

Had a Wideroe Dash 8 try three times to land at Sandefjord Torp (TRF) in a Thunderstorm some years back. Great rollercoaster ride with the Captain continuously updating us on conditions and process. Eventually he gave up and we landed at Oslo Gardermoen (OSL). Very boring three hour coach ride home...

Re: Turbulent Landing

Upon further thought, there tend to be scientifically inspired operational limits that were probably followed here if I were to guess.
I wonder if the opposite is true.. Stabilized approach? Max crosswind (including gusts)?

Re: Turbulent Landing

surely that amount of movement and buffeting calls for another go once it has died down a bit. We recently had several bouts of weather that brought winds similar to those shown in the video. In at least one case they lasted for a day and a half... that seems like kind of a long time to hold. :mrgr...
