Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

Nobody can precisely replicate in the sim an engine damage and failure that ends up with the cowling flying away and hitting and severing a pax window with the pax partially flying away. So let's not practice engine failures and loss of pressurization. Because you know, not replicating EXACTLY the s...

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

And what does "demonstrated in practice" mean? I believe it was "demonstrated in practice" that Sully had plenty of attitude to make it back to the airport. I said "tested in practice" as opposed to "calculated in theory". It was done, as much as the Sully landing. By DHL to some extent, by NASA, a...

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

With no way to manage AoA, turns have to be wide and changes in pitch very smooth. You want a very long final rather than a circuit pattern. It's been a while and I must have forgotten- at what point did they lay it over into a steep bank, make harsh pitch changes or aim on a tight base leg? There'...

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

I can tell you it was enough of a bitch trying to land an A320 in mechanical backup (in the sim, of course). Mind you, we had a rudder, flaps, stab trim, and gear. Made it to 34R at SEA, but VERY barely. How many hours had you spent learning and practicing how to handle the plane in that condition,...

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

Part II: [...] I begin to see flyboy's side that it's not the best use of time. It is my side too. That one thing (training in phugoid management) can be done doesn't mean that it should be done. Two different things. I'm still wondering how the Sioux City bunch was going to stay on the runway and ...

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

So Gabe, you've got this tone that if the Sioux City guys had some sim time and just done 1, 2, 3, and 4 there'd have been no crash. BUT 1. They had more problems than no controls. I think there were several minutes where A. Staying right side up was a challenge and B. Having directional control wa...

It's not just a tone, it's apparently a fact, he wrote a phugging thesis on it.
It has been tested in practice too.

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

I think you're missing the point. I was talking more about how I'm supposed to not phug up the phugoid when: 1. I have no functioning control surfaces; 2. I am down an engine, and the ONLY control I have are the remaining engines, thanks be to Quetzalcoatl they're underslung. Well, actually a good ...

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

On the contrary. I agree that it is super unlikely that you will ever need it, but if a large aircraft experiences enough failures to where the phugoid is much of a factor, managing it is probably going to be key to the outcome, as it was in UA at Sioux City and DHL at Baghdad. I thought you said S...

Re: FAO Messi of Aeroengineering

Well, I could have just told you and Gabby to go phug yourselves, but that would be too easy. I guess what I'm wondering is what you (plural, of course) expect me to do about this phugoid. If a large aircraft experiences enough failures to where the phugoid is much of a factor, it's probably going ...

Re: Convair C-131 crash in Pretoria

How about better grounding all Convairs and putting the airline in our no-fly list?
Which airline?
Per
The plane was painted in the colors of, but not operated by, Martin's Air Charter.
My post was never serious to begin with.

Thanks for the clarification. I'll relay the information to Lufthansa Technik, thankfully they have an office at FLL.
Don't bother. They already know.

Re: A340 troubles, the latest news...

Noted. Is that from two airline mechanic youtube videos or is it just your own opinion backed by decades of airliner repair experience? You mean I need to look youtube videos or have 30 years of airliner repair experience to note that the nose of the plane is burnt? I was more curious what orifice ...
