3BS: Indeed, we still can't believe this photo for the Air Florida flight.
No_Soy_Carlos: Well, it says it is an Air Florida Flight
, but not which one
. This is totally a REAL
totalairdisasterphoto of an Air Florida
flight (Not_90), more recent
, with a leased aircraft
. It is also a night shot
Thank you for the clarification (and noticing that it is a night shot).
Instead of a specific single crash
where a pilot dutifully ignored his improvisational cowboy feeling
that he should abort OR firewall the engines in violation of carefully computed power settings, and instead following the official, trained, type specific takeoff procedure
of monitoring EPR and V1 and V2 (without TOPMS OR a Boeing Bobby speed check) (See footnote)....
The actual photographed crash is one of several hundred where an Airbus
with FBW did things that were totally against all fundamentals, with the CVR containing the words, "What's it doing now"...although perhaps in this case it's 'why is it steering towards this bridge...I've been pulling up the whole time'.
Footnote: Yes, Evan, they did botch the procedures of engine anti-ice, attempted reverse thrust powerback in snow, and wing deicing, and maybe the CRM was a shred off.
