i just can't believe that a pilot can crush a plane, just by turning to the left too much... he was low, he could see out of the windows, the fact that de plane was leaning to the left, even if his instrument showed that it did not... i can't believe that he pulled so much to the left, that he crushed the plane... low- quality pilot...

I find this explanation hardly probable. I don't believe that a trained pilot, during a regular climbing flight, couldn't at least keep this machine in the air, no matter auto-throttle failure or even copilot's incapacitation, no matter artificial horizon differences or whether he earned his exp in Russian planes. They weren't in IFR conditions, so I don't find it plausible, that he just fixated on the instrument instead of watching the landscape. It would be more plausible that in Russian planes they had no auto-throttle, so he just didn't expect levers moving all by themselves. BTW: partly due to this example, I find this auto-throttle of too little help to justify its extra complexity-driven breakdown overhead. I believe, if they knew about this failure, why didn't they just disable it completely? - for a mere relief from having to retract the thrust by one inch? Instead, I propose an explanation you most probably won't accept. Did you try to investigate, who flew and died there? Let me remark, that 1995 in Romania was 6 years after court-martialing and shooting of Ceausescu. You shouldn't underestimate the powers and methods of Securitate and peculiarities of "transformation" (like in all our post-Soviet countries). I believe, that an airliner is quite ideal tool for getting rid of inconvenient ppl.

I suspect, that if a 737NG does impact mountainside terrain, gear position won't matter. But if Boeing says leave gear down, leave gear down. Terrain profile indicator showed terrain as almost vertical, and ascend trajectory of aircraft, going through it. So how is it, in this simulation, they cleared terrain? For an airliner, to clear terrain of a mountain by 400 ft., thats already an incident requiring an investigation. Note. I am not going to fly to Salzburg, Austria. I am going to fly into Vienna, then take a train or bus. That runway, sitting in a valley surrounded by Alps! No thank you. My luggage and skis, that can fly FedEx or DHL, and I'll pick em up.

I'm a Senior Station Officer in a fire service. I encourage my team to try things in training outside what the norm is. That way when things go wrong they recognise it and can troubleshoot and recover. More lessons are learned from your errors in a training environment than will ever be learned by always getting it right. The key point of difference is 'in a training environment'.

Sure Gear out will reduce impact force but only if the gear is the first to contact the ground. If there's a steep Hill it won't and therefore ite unnecessary. On the other hand it will slow down the aircraft and it would be able to climb higher without stalling when the gear is retracted. On top you'll have some more feet before zhe aircraft would touch some terrain. Not much but both together might just be enough to get the last bit to over the top of that terrain. Also if there are 2 pilot why isn't one watching where in the horizontal display are lower terrains and suggest banking while climbing. I know that would cost height while banking so that basically would depend on the clearance that's left but innsome situation it seems to be the better reason. Ok, when you're not fully aware and shocked you're not able to quickly assess the situation completely and decide. Probably that's why its not in the protocol. Basically I would think a pilot thats able to overlook the situation will gibe a shit on the protocols. In an emergency, if he sees a better solution.

Was working in DC this winter. My department director was in her van-pool ON the 14th street bridge. They could not see anything but felt the bridge in a death shutter. What a mess. Metro accident at the same time so subway was shutdown. My carpool went a block an hour. We left at 2 pm and got home to Annapolis about 9 pm. (Off rush hour a 35 minute trip). It was horrible listening to the news on the radio (well before the Internet)

Even as an occasional Microsoft Flight Simulator pilot, I'm instinctively aware of the folly in what these two clown were doing. You should learn in your very first flying lesson that when you are approaching a stall condition, you push the nose down to regain airspeed. I wonder if there is so much emphasis being put on learning the complex systems of modern aircraft that basic flying skills are being given short shrift.

So in the 80's we didn't know flying through ash clouds wasn't good for the engine's?I was 4 at that time and I think if you asked me I'd have known it was a bad idea.

Hydrogen is a TINY MOLECULE ... and this makes it EASY TO ESCAPE from tubes, which need to be FLAWLESS ... where the same tube can have tiny cracks with liquids. You need to weld connections extra carefully ... If any of the tubing develops a crack - vibrations can age metal and develop cracks ... especially if part of it is REALLY REALLY COLD - the liquid can turn into gas and escape rather quickly ... maybe even in an explosive manner. And that would not even include the EXPLOSION of "oxyhydrogen".

On "global warming" ... I can only say that EVERYONE GETS THE ENTIRE THING WRONG ... 1. global warming IS REAL ... which can be seen at the glaciers in the alps. They were created in the ice age and almost disappeared over the last 100 years. 2. the solution of "reducing emissions" IS NOT GOING TO WORK ... for a simple reason: *The Tragedy at the Commons* ... look it up and then look at how "international treaties" HAVENT WORKED AT ALL over the last 40 years, when even the most willing countries CAN NOT KEEP THEIR PROMISES. 3. All the "predictions" from "experts" are TEA-LEAF-READING ... and NOT SCIENTIFIC, because science is a) posting a THEORY and then b) PROVING / DISPROVING it through repeatable experiments (hardly possible since we are INSIDE THE ONE EXPERIMENT), statistical data (again "impossible because statistics are RESULTS IN THE PAST") or pure chains of logic ... but that would be "weather forecast logic" ... and since when has a weather forecast model produced a precise result for TOMORROW? 4. The solution? There is only one solution ... and it lies IN SPACE ... a big SOLAR SHIELD. This is something which a few countries can work on ... and it WILL WORK, it just takes "a few decades" to get it done. *So please STOP LISTENING TO GRETA and all her nonsensical followers and STOP WASTING MONEY ON ELECTRIC CARS and PLANES ... these people just want to SELL YOU STUFF!* *You also need to tell the US Government/"Intelligence Agencies" to STOP DESTABILISING COUNTRIES, because there WAS a consortium which intended to produce hydrogen from solar power in North Africa ... until the "arab spring" that was initiated/helped along by US global-political "games" (under Hillary Clinton).*

When I was training in air traffic control I wasn't even on the scope but just plugged in and observing another controller and his D side (radar assistant). He cleared an aircraft to FL220 and I thought the pilot read back FL200. I questioned the controller (it was impressed upon us in the academy that readback/hearback errors are important to catch and they're on us to do so, so I didn't want to not speak up and see anything happen). The controller immediately said his clearance again, the same as the first time, and the readback was correct. After that, he asked his D side if the initial readback was FL200 or FL220 and the D side said he thought it was FL220 (which would've been correct) but he wasn't sure. That was the end of it. We didn't argue, second guess, question, or ask each other or the pilot, we just handled it and then reflected briefly. At worst, we made one unnecessary transmission and caused another one by reissuing the clearance. At best, we kept a crew from busting their assigned altitude and possibly putting separation at risk. Nobody blamed me, called me out, or went and checked the tapes. I've also been in the airline jumpseat and caught things like frequencies missed by the pilots or telling them what a navaid was that we were cleared to (that wasn't on the flight plan). Relatively minor things, but saves embarrassment or extra radio frequency congestion.

One of the reason that these passengers were so professional in their evacuation, even though they are amateur basketball players at the University of Michigan, is 1) They are probably 18 to 22 years old - not old enough to think that the whole world revolves around them... and 2) as members of a basketball team, they are used to following orders from their coaches, instructions from their teachers, etc. etc. So these two factors contributed to their quick obedience to instructions.
