Holy shiat the rest of the passengers were insanely lucky that a wing didn't rip off in that ground loop, the whole thing would have burned and they'd never have had a chance.

Unless there was some unexplained total loss of power from both engines, everyone involved in training, testing, and certifying that crew should be summarily shot. The incompetence required to be that low and that short on a clear day when you have an ILS showing your exact position relative to the glide slope and you're supposedly a trained ATP is truly astounding.

And now we see why the woman yesterday was saying the plane rolled over, from a distance it looks like it damn well did

Oh good, I see you've got this wrapped up here. I'll call the NTSB and let them know to head home...

While you're likely headed down the right road, there are many more factors than just engine power that could affect their situation. That's why we investigate instead of speculate.

If I remember correctly, ILS has been off on that runway for a couple of weeks due to construction.

Yup, at that distance it could be a roll or a cartwheel, both of which were mentioned early on.

the NTSB just had a press conference and initial review of the flight data recorder says the plane was coming in going too slow but apparently the throttles were at a proper setting.

You're correct. Due to construction, the portions of the ILS for both 28R and 28L were taken out of service. A new procedure, called RNAV (GPS) PRM, was created to allow SFO ATC to continue to issue Simultaneous Offset Instrument Approaches and not impact capacity. I don't know if that had anything to do with it, but the 777 is VNAV-capable and there could have been some automation issues with the new procedures and crew training.

Ok if you want to cover a couple more bases, add total loss of hydraulics or instrumentation. The point being unless something was really, REALLY wrong with that airplane, that crew flew an "approach" that a two hour private pilot could have recognized was disastrously low and slow. They farking hit the water, at least what, more than half a kilometer short of the ILS touchdown point, and were obviously way slow, high alpha, hanging right on the edge of stall.

If something was seriously wrong with the plane, fine, we dig into the engineering and it gets corrected on all existing 777s. Otherwise what I said stands, that's beyond incompetent and everyone in the chain of approvals that put that crew in that cockpit should feel serious consequences.

vossiewulf: The point being


The "point being", you weren't there, you don't have the data and you're just speculating based on second-hand accounts and far-off videos.

You might be right, but if you are it's by luck not fact so your random speculation is just that: random speculation.

Well, no one has a private pilot certificate with two hours, so I doubt that. Also, it's a lot easier to be low and slow on a visual approach than an instrument approach, so I don't think the fact that it was clear made the situation better. Also, as was mentioned, the ILS is OTS for this runway and a new procedure is in effect. I haven't looked at all the NOTAMS to see what specific equipment was effected at the time, but I'm almost certain a portion of the glidepath indicator was OTS.

It's quite possible that this crew had no history of subpar performance. I don't think we can lump everyone who's ever evaluated them as being responsible. That said, I taught a lot of foreign contract students in the late '90s, most of them from airlines like Asiana and Korean Air and China Airlines. They were good at studying, but a lot of them lacked a fundamental grasp of the "feel" of flying.

That is exactly what I was going to link to. This 777 crash is bad but compared to that 747...this looks almost benign.

ILS was inop.  Visual landing.  regardless, the GPS in that airplane is capable of both glideslope and centerline.

They have to make an abort decision pretty early to get throttle response.  They were originally high, pulled throttle to idle, extended gear and flaps, and bled off altitude.  When they reached correct altitude, they had insufficient power and tried to stretch it.  They impacted with throttles at idle and airplane near stall speed.  Not sure if they had hit the go-around button on the throttle but they get thrust and speed instantly.

I don't have a smart phone, iPad or any of those new fangled gadgets. Why is it that vertical videos have out of focus side bars? If it was set to a higher resolution, wouldn't that make it larger, thus eliminate the problem?

Plane doing a cartwheel is terrifying.
 
2013-07-07 06:19:00 PM
Hit the breakwater with the tail already in the bay.

Then did a full cartwheel at a 45 degree bank angle, just like was reported yesterday and nobody believed it.

Had the plane flipped,  we'd have had another Souix City.

Wow.

/ video needs deshaked.
