what you hope not to see when flying

Ladies and Gentelmen, this is your captain speaking. Firstly, I would like to thank you for choosing to fly with Mandarin Airlines. As we taxi out onto the runway please make yourself comfortable.... And for those of you sitting on the right side of the plane... Please look to your LEFT!




Cheers

Ben

Better than looking out the window at 20 000 feet and seeing little old guys in orange robes looking down at you...

Re: what you hope not to see when flying

AP won't be happy!!

I think it had tried to land in a cyclone in HongKong??. The picture is rather ironic as it is it's sistership lying on the floor. Very sad.

Re: what you hope not to see when flying

It crashed in typhoon conditions at the new Chep Lap Kok airport in Hong Kong.

The Italian pilot was landing in conditions that were just within the regulatory limits, for cross wind angle and strength.

But the co-pilot was relatively inexperienced.

On the final approach which the pilot had remarked was as per normal, the co pilot panicked and screamed "we are not going to make it, abort abort" and made an attempt to take the controls, the pilot ending up having a screaming match and a controls wrestling match with the co-pilot, not the best way of landing an aircraft in tough conditions.

The confusion and following result can be seen in the above photo, and a number of lessons can be learned.

The pilot, co-pilot and many of the passengers survived.

The airport remained closed for some time but reopened later before the crash was cleared.

Cheers

Re: what you hope not to see when flying

Seen some guys recently doing there command training in a Lear 45 on their way to the left hand seat of a 747-400.
Now these are guys who've been sitting in the right hand seat for a number of years and what were these sages, these oracles, these fonts of aviation wisdom and knowhow being shown ?
Crosswind landings!!! None of them had any idea. Instead of the Lear 45, they should've been out there in the local clapped out 150!
And to think that soon you could be flying with them, sitting down the back in cattle class, with the rest of the self loading freight! Frightning.

IT's all about CRM, obviously Mandarin Airlines haven't heard of that term before!
