    On the 26th of June, 1988 a two day old Airbus A320 crashed in a spectacular way during an Airshow in Mulhouse-Habsheim airport outside of Basle, France.
    Air France flight 296 was one of the first ever passenger flights with the new Airbus A320 and Air France had allowed it to take part in this air-show as part of a publicity day with the new aircraft.
    During the fly-by at Habsheim airfield, the aircraft seemed unable to climb and ended up flying straight into the forrest on the far side of runway 34.

    In this episode of "Air Accidents explained" I will dig deep into what happened on this day and why the aircraft seemed unable to follow the pilots commands.

Those 2 incompetent pilots should be stripped of their wings forever and thrown in jail for 12 years along with all administrative personnel linked to the flight plan. Inexcusable decisions from the entire Air France team. 6 months prison sentence ONLY!?? Such a disgrace. Funny how he loved the fly-by-wire until he absolutely cocks the flight up, only to try blame the aircraft and the most likely the FBW system for not providing the TOGA thrust. He and the preparation team configured that flight to fail and had most likely weeks to plan for it. Given the Captains previous experience that only makes it worse. This was a pre-meditated and calculated incident. The charges should have been for murder as that is what it was. They need to re-open the case and throw them all in a cell.

I like these series a lot. You´re doing great. Often, Air crash series are over dramatized, or repetetive. You share a lot of in dept info, get to the point, and you´re describing everything with such accuracy that I don´t even have to watch: I can just listen, which is great when having insomnia and don´t like to watch a bright screen at night :)

The 3 casualties were tragic but I am astonished it was only 3. A crash landing into woods does not come with attractive odds of survival, it is the Russian roulette of crash landings. The actual impact reminded me of SAS 751 which Mentour Pilot has a video on too which was equally miraculous in terms of survivors, however unlike this flight where the flight systems didn't fail but were forced into the predicament, the computers on SAS 751 countermanded the flight crews inputs and turned a difficult situation into a disaster.

Thank you. Several times in several of these videos there seems to be a communication problem between the pilot and Number 1 or involving other persons. Recently, I've had my oil changed at a Jiffy Lube and the interactive calling out and verification of what is going on with each individual car is something that is more thorough then anything I have witnessed, EVER. Procedure and protocol. Sometimes, people think they are so good at something that they don't have to prepare or pay attention.

We all know why the pilot was the only one to go to jail...nobody from AF management though. A lot was riding on this fly by wire demo, and to this day, it has harmed Airbus' image and fly by wire in general. Of course pilots in certain companies have little say, and eventually accept their new airframe, but in other areas, cables are still king (even with high tech airframes) as are hydro FC. I worked on both those systems, so I am partial...but I did learn a few things about this crash that I did not know. 1. It had passengers. Rumor mill was that it was fully automated with just monitoring crew...and that same rumor said that all had perished. Glad that most survived 2. The main culprit seems to be poor planning. I would say the biggest blame is on the parents that let their kids go on an aerobatic flight. If you are an adult, go ahead. I dont have that much of an issue with passengers being onboard. It's an airshow, and they come with inherent risks (such as if a plane goes down, which could hit the crowd). 3. I dont know if MP feels this way, but I get the hint that Air France really wanted to shift the blame, and threw the crew under the bus (I wont make the obvious joke...) I have had fairly negative experience with AF in my aviation career (but not worse that British Airways, which I rate as the lowest in my book, on par with Conair) 4. The passenger that went back was very brave but the comments...sheesh, tone it down. Heroism is found everywhere, everyday. Just as a thought, but, if you dont recognize it elsewhere (say a soldier junping on a grenade), then maybe your motives are not related to the heroic act itself but other things. Most of you I am sure understand, but there is a large number of such comments, which to me, and in this era indicate more prurient thought processes.

I liked the way towards the end, when he said "the Captain maintains his innocence to this day". While this ostensibly remains loyal to the entire corps of his fellow pilots, as he always seems to be, albeit without coming across as defensive, the glint in his eye leaves no doubt as to his opinion of that captain. Many of the comments in this string rightly pick up on the heroism of the lady rescuer - but most I think seem to agree that not only was the entire plan utter lunacy from the outset, but that on the day, the lack of planning, cavalier execution and arrogance(no one watching this video could avoid the implication that the decision to go at 30ft instead of 100, was totally deliberate and nothing less than pure showing off) and poor communication were 99.99% of the reason behind this horrifying - and wholly avoidable - accident; and absolutely nothing to do with poor throttle response... I don't normally feel vindictive and wholly agree with the "just" airline concept where pilots feel free to own their mistakes for the improvement of training/systems/procedures and therefore safety. On this occasion, however, I feel the Court at which the five were tried, was wholly justified in their decision and sentencing. Shocking.

Great video and a fantastic channel! Keep up this great work. There were a few plane crashes in Poland worth mentioning. The most important would probably be the presidential flight that tried to land in the fog in Smolensk/Russia. It's a very interesting story of a military flight crew - apparently with little experience and under extreme pressure to land from they military superiors present in the cockpit. Moments before the crash the pilot wanted to raise the plane to avoid the trees and similarly to this A320 case - the plane did not respond. As far as I understood, he used a button on the yoke instead of pushing the throttle but the button only works together with the ILS system (if that makes any sense - I'm no expert) - and there was no ILS in Smolensk that day. It was a huge tragedy. There is also an interesting incident of a Boeing 767 landing without it's landing gear in Warsaw. This one is a real mess because it's caused by an off jumper that the crew coudn't locate for an hour. The pilot did a great job of landing it safely but there there was a huge dilemma whether he was a hero or a loser because he wasted a good plane. But in reality it looks like he lacked ground support (the date it happened is an important Polish holiday) and the airline did not perform an upgrade on the hydraulic joints whose failure killed the primary hydraulic system. So while he received a medal from the Polish President, the pilot community was privately dissing him. Maybe one day you have a while to look into these. Anyway, thank you again for great videos and have safe flights!

I remember reading a few years ago that there was a "bug" in the fly-by-wire system on the A3XX whereby if both the P1 and P2 pressed the command override, the computer would take both inputs into account --- e.g. if P1 tried to turn left, and P2 tried to turn right, the aircraft would interpret it differentially and continue straight. Do you have any information about this incident? (I think it was on an early test flight of the A3XX series...)

I was also involved in the search and recovery at Lockerbie, Scotland that Christmas, as well as the search and recovery of some F-16 Pilots in South Korea in 87 - 88 before I was transferred to Ramstein .. the only airshow I've been to since then was Thunder Over Michigan in .. I think it was 2005 .. as Crew Chief on B-17 'Chuckie' out of Fort Worth [ now owned by Gerald Yagen out of Virginia Beach, VA ] .. I did a 1 hour video of a walk around explaining how to do a pre-flight on a B-17 and operated as Flight Engineer during the fly-overs, but the guy who filmed it never sent me the footage .. it's out there somewhere ..

I love this channel and I'm completely hooked. I used to be a pilot so this is quite interesting for me as I can relate from my own experience. However the real genius behind this production is the delivery. I'm curious how much effort goes into non aviation aspect of the videos (for example in the selection of the two very bright pillows or the dogs or the wall art) Anyone can read the NTSB reports and get the same info but the delivery is where this channel shines. I just wanted to say great job, I appreciate the entertainment and education, I can only imagine how much work goes into making every one of these videos to the amazing quality. I especially like whenever you show that any of these minor accidents, errors or horrible tragedies have someone positive to teach afterwords and improve aviation throughout the world. One thing I've learned is that every single person placed in a specific situation can make any mistake that any other pilot has made, its a humbling realization and gives empathy toward other pilots who make mistakes. Thank you for making such great videos and to everyone who helps out with them.

Air shows create an environment that encourages manoeuvres meant to thrill spectators at the same time as appealing to the pilots more hubristic side. Safety sometimes drops from a primary consideration which as an infrequent flyer i would hope would never be overtaken by other concerns. The woman gave her life trying to save a stranger.

If the alpha protection had not worked, and the pilot pitched up, they would have stalled, rolled over and crashed a lot harder into the ground. So it saved most lives. There is a very thin line between showing off and coming off.

This reminds me of the famous computer programmer saying, "garbage in, garbage out." No matter how capable one is, if one gives a computer bad inputs, the computer can't give back good outputs. I doubt the captain intended to crash, but over-reliance on external systems can lead to complacency with a dangerous situation. Any computer is only as good as its operator, whether it's in a plane or on a desk.

When you started talking about the pilot, I was like huh ... Is he talking about the same guy I remember because THE guy I remember was all : "fly by wire" is a bad idea, and the "system" betrayed me. At the end of the video it all made more sense. Never actually knew that he was promoting that safety feature before that. Aaanyway .... Using an ACTUAL airliner (not a prototype) for a demonstration show is 🤯 ... And airliner has safety features for a purpose. Safety. It's not designed nor should be able to be modified to do "stunts". Which they did. And the plane performed pretty much as it was supposed to. There was a story at that time saying that, Airbus forgot to mention that once BELOW a certain altitude and in a certain configuration (like flaps, the landing gear out, etc), the computer will assume that you are actually landing and assist you by prioritizing certain things over others. Which ended up adding to the confusion and the delay in putting power back. Excellent video (as usual).

In my opinion those two stupid pilots should take the whole responsibility for killing the fatalities and the whole crash. No matter how experienced you are and how good knowledge you have as long as you’re are not preparing yourself for such case in advance and risking peoples’ lives by making stupid ad-hock decisions. The brain is to be used and not to be just located in the skull. Those pilots were daft as a brush and should never, ever be allowed to fly again. Such stupid people should be kept away from flying. That’s my opinion. Nevertheless, thanks for the video - great explanation!

The reason for the accident can be summed down to one fact - the decision to descend below 100 ft. I see you made some excuses for the pilots...none are valid because there's an RA on the airplane that'll tell exactly how high above terrain they are. An experienced pilot knows the difference between 100 ft and 35 ft above terrain. I think they were trying to create a more exciting show by descending lower and also flying at max AOA - with no margin for error. Everything would have been fine - except for the unplanned for trees.

Why do you (aviation) judge someone's experience in "hours" when a great deal of the "hours" aren't doing anything. Why not grade a pilot in takeoffs and landings as that is the most challenging part of the flight. A Pilot with 20 hours that flies a plane on a 20 hour tip is far less experienced that at pilot that flies 4 5 hours trips.

Over and over again accidents like this happen when trying to show off a new aircraft (I don’t mean “being” a “show off”, although sometimes that happens too). — this aircraft (new design) — XB-70 (new design, photo shoot) — B-52 (practicing for an airshow, and in this case the pilot was known to be a show off), Fairchild Air Force Base — etc. Then there are the ironic situations when the captain was making their last flight before retiring and some mishap occurs.

Around 6:32 you state that as the speed changes, the angle of attack changes. Then you state that even at a constant pitch angle, for example 10° nose up, if you let the speed decrease, the angle of the upcoming air will differ as a result. I'm puzzled by this. Can you please explain why that is and how that works? Here is my limited understanding of the topic so far I understand that the angle of attack influences the lift coefficient. I have seen these curves in the past. I have understood that the critical AoA takes place at the top of the curve where the lift coefficient is max, regardless of the air speed. Then there are graphs that show the relationship between drag coefficient and angle of attack and Lift/drag and Angle of attack. From these graphs you can deduct the stall speed at a certain angle of attack. The total lift is obviously depending on the air speed as it is calculated by the formula below: Lift = ( lift coefficient x air density x air velocity x wing area ) / 2 But I just can't wrap my head around your statement. Can someone please explain?

Vor Monat

Yes, the problem you get is that when you get slower, lift decreases. The formula you posted shows that perfectly. But what does this mean in practical application? well, let's say you fly an aircraft with a 10° AoA and 10° pitch at speed X and that is exactly sufficient to keep your altitude stable. Now let's say your speed drops to X-10 knots, what will happen? Well simple, your altitude starts to decrease because you generate less lift, your pitch stays at 10° and your AoA will now be 10+° because your aircraft doesn't fly strictly horizontal anymore. The air hits the wing from slithly below horzontal, because you're descending.

Makes me sick to my stomach... and extremely angry, all at once. My heartfelt sorrow goes out to the three who died, and to their families. Those two poor children and the heroic lady who tried to save the trapped little girl; all killed by the fire that engulfed the downed airplane; all due to the ultimate, mind-numbing arrogance of know-it-all Air France employees and pilots. I think they were let off way too easily.

What's even more saddening to hear after all of this is that the captain was still arrogant enough to blame the engines for not spooling up fast enough. Surely, people like that should be kept well away from any cockpit.

He also blamed the fly-by wire to not react to his pitch-up inputs when hee needed them. Which was as designed, if you are at max AOA and you got alpha prot you will get no pitch up. The A320 actually prevented a stall.

This was an unexpected crash but if you can t avoid trees..(no fuel eg): Is it safer to make an emergency landing with a high pitch up of the nose of the aircraft while maintaining low altitude? Is that safer than landing on some rocky uneven sights? And how should you decide dealing with a landing gear failure while having no nice open fields, airports or riveres around? -Sad and unbelivable story that there were three victims but I was sure that you can t survive such a violent dive into the forest..
