That could have gone badly.  Good thing those three guys in high-viz vests were there to stop it.

deadheading in to haul a load of seafood to China.

Those flights must smell absolutely wonderful when they get to Asia,.

Just look at the photo again.  The high-viz guy on the left is clearly a jedi.  He's got a lightsaber and everything.

"It takes longer to stop on a wet runway. It could be they got into a situation we call hydroplaning."

so does everyone else.  or are you trying to be funny because it involves a plane

Actually, it was just plain planing, until they hit the water. Then it was hydroplaning. Then they hit the ground. That's called geoplaning.

You don't want geoplaning.

Well, this is (was) a thing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/​Ground-e​ffect_vehicle
I guess they hadn't planned for rare events like a wave hitting it at sea.  It's unclear whether the front fell off during sea trials, or whether there were sea trials.

Not sure about the reverse thrusters, but the breaking system worked just fine... the plain plane broke.

"scheduled to be loaded with live lobster destined for China"

I was wondering what on earth a B747 cargo plane would be doing in Halifax. Now I know.

Why on earth would they accept a downwind landing?

Old_Chief_Scott: Why on earth would they accept a downwind landing?


seriously. tower and pilot error here. the tower should have flipped the runways, or the pilot shoulda asked for a flip...between a tailwind and the rain they were asking for a crash even with a lighter than normal plane

ILS not functional in the other direction. Technically ILS not functional in either direction now as they plowed through the localizer in their excursion.

Tailwind at near max certified, but unless they were tankering in cheap gas from ORD, they should have been really light.
 
2018-11-09 11:55:27 AM  
I am confident in saying that Halifax, NS is the only airport to have not one but two end-of-runway 747 lobster freighter crashes.

CSB, my father lead a team for the US government to look at the erkanoplan while it was under development and determine if it was a feasible concept. He was a leading expert on surface effect ships. The determination was no, and the US never pursued building their own. /CSB

The only skidmarks were in the cockpit after that .

Do you think it might have been due to a break in the braking system ?

"It did land and then overshot the runway," Rath Spicer said Wednesday.'

Indeed. Every plane that has ever flown has also landed.

Possibly, the retractable landing gear retracted into what appears to be the runway and soil behind the plane along with the now broken breaking system.

I am furiously typing out an email to Elon demanding he launch an airplane into space on a no return trajectory only to make that statement no longer true.

Well, technically...over 14,000 planes that have flown have not landed, because they're still in the air right now.

Only the ones on their first ever flight would fall outside of the original statement though .

My favourite bit of the Ekranoplan story was how at first the west thought Russia was building a giant bomber from viewing spy plane shots of it, and were trying to work out what size wings they would need to put on it to make it actually fly...

Nova Scotia is Spanish for "Don't go to Scotia".

Study it out.
 
2018-11-09 04:47:53 PM  
I hope it is the original Halifax, in England. No, I take that back. A lot of my ancestors were Yorkshiremen and women.

It's one of those places that are great places to be from.

My conclusion: Scotland, a great country for Old Men.

A bad country for the Sun-loving and the Spanish.

But technically, they have landed, as "landed" is past tense, unless we're talking about a brand-new plane that just took off on its first flight ever.

You (and someone else) are assuming the statement "Every plane that has ever flown has also landed" was talking about planes and not plane flights. I think my interpretation is the more natural one.
