    The Incredible story of British Airways flight 5390 took place on the 10th of June, 1990. The BAC 1-11 took off from Birmingham international airport in the UK with destination Malaga, Spain.
    During the climb out, when the aircraft passed 17300 feet, the forward left windshield suddenly detached itself and blew out with an explosive decompression as a result.
    What happened next is part of aviation history. Enjoy!

I have changed a few 747 L1 window (capt's fwd) and learned the hard way that there were about 3-4 different length hardware holding that one ton window in. After first mistake, we took a piece of cardboard and as the hardware came out of the air frame, we put the hardware into the cardboard in the same position as removed. Fun doing that on the line with a cherry picker. Thanks for the great video and an A&P worse nightmare.

This is a fantastic event, with disaster prevented by the crew's actions, greatly presented in the video, and in the comments, noted that BA kept the "perpetrator" recognizing that this mistake (and similar ones) will never be made again. The non-relation between Imperial and Metric units was key in the wrong bolt substitution leading to the window blowout. A similar factor occurred when Canada began switching to metric and had the wrong fuel weight (kg=2.2 lbs) nearly resulting in the loss of an aircraft running out of fuel, but dealt with by the crew and an emergency landing. These factors apply to other engineering-related situations, and I will take them to heart at NASA.

Ok, so how can someone be an exemplary employee and " doing a fantastic job up until that point" and "seemed to care about the quality of his job" , while at the same time allowing for "Inadequate procedures and inadequate care for procedures creeping in over a long term"? Those two statements directly contradict each other yet are made in the span of 20s concerning the same individual. Lacking care over a long span of time is the direct opposite of doing a fantastic job up until that point. Sounds pretty strange.

I worked for the British Aircraft Corporation as an engineer 1973-75 but on military aircraft where RAF procedures were followed as to quality assurance and inspection of work carried out. I could 'oversign' my own work but not if it was a control in which case another engineer had to oversign me. This was normal procedure. Also as an aside, I must say that the BAC 1-11 was never called the 'Back' but the 'Bee Ayy See' one-eleven. I notice the report said that the engineer should wear corrective glasses. Did he not do that if they were needed? I had an entry in my medical record to say that I was not allowed to do any aircraft work without my corrective glasses.

Nice vid again, but I don't think the report was too harsh on the mechanic-manager. You can't treat a plane like fixing up your lawnmover, going to the shed to find some scrap replacement pieces with the mindset "that'll do just fine, I've been at this job for 10 years, never saw a window fly out, easy does it !". Pure reckless endangerement, a quick patch-her-up job, driven by monetary incentives, to keep things moving. There's no hiding behind "but the part was not classified as critical in the manual !", everyone knows a window in a passenger plane is critical. The report also said this action was symptomatic of a structural lackluster working attitude, which I assume is based on interviews with his colleagues. So yeah, really bad day for him, it's tough and commendable work those mechanics do (I couldn't do it) and he had no intent to cause harm, but he bears responsibility nonetheless for his hasty duck-tape job. The captain and passengers had a really bad day as well, because of him.

One of the most amazing samples of flying under pressure in the history of aviation by the First officer to stay calm enough, in the absolute chaos mechanically, physically , and most importantly mentally, psychologically and emotionally to land the plane so perfectly after To be able to keep his mental state calm enough and thought processes logical enough and block out the the carnage around him requires super human strength It's just totally unprecedented and Impossible to train for such an event and the stress involved

An amazing story again, told with precision and developed insight. My appreciation has been advanced for the aircraft industry’s way of reviewing every accident objectively to get to all root causes. The engineer was not scapegoated in a simplistic manner, but after a detailed review process, his failure was seen in the light of general practices which always over time tend toward decline. The conclusion was that there is a constant need of upgraded training along with insuring every activity being back-checked. Having this outside entity carrying out such a rigorous accident review process is a brilliant way to keep the industry going to a higher level of operation.

Are you sure that you are a pilot? The reason being that your title states the pilot was "sucked out mid flight!" - jet aircraft fly and their engines won't run in a vacuum! The air was thinner at altitude and the pressure was greater within the fuselage so he was blown out of the cockpit!

I know of a related situation where a pilot of a F111 took his shoulder harness off, after which an engine experienced a compressor stall while they were traveling around mach2. The sudden decelleration threw the pilot over the stick and sent the plane into warp speed dive. The pilot was unable to get back in his seat so the co-pilot was forced to eject them. At the time in the late 70's it was the second fastest successful ejection in the US Air Force. He was a cool good guy when I knew him. Not much was a very big deal to him from that point on.

A very common misconception here. You are NOT Sucked out, all the energy is in the POSITIVE pressure. You are actually BLOWN out by the POSITIVE pressure in the Cabin, and once out in the slipstream are DRAGGED out by the airflow. A lower air pressure cannot 'suck' you out, in the same way a Vacuum Cleaner cannot suck anything up a the tube, anything going up their is PUSHED up there by 60FT/Lbs per Sq inch of Air Pressure outside the cleaner and the LOWER pressure inside the Cleaner.. If you are not sure exactly how much 60 Lbs/Sq inch actually is, try lifting something which weighs 60Lbs and imaging that one EVERY sq inch of the air all around you. You can't feel it simply because you have been born in an Atmosphere of 60Lbs /Sq inch of pressure. Your body in a Vacuum will push out at exactly that pressure. Lower air pressure has less 'energy' than higher air pressure. Suction actually doesn't exist.

I'm surprised that there was no finding issued to keep the pilot's seat belts fully attached - at least maybe until they reach cruising altitude! But during take off, departure, and climb to altitude, and descent, approach, and landing they should have "the full belt" engaged!

This is what happens when corporate mentality of creating rules overpowers basic common sense, and the rules become more important than basic common sense elements. The engineer replacing the windscreen knew something was amiss, but wouldn't confront management because of authority level. This is what happens when people view their authority as top priority, whether it is management themselves, or the worker at the bottom of the totem pole. When rules are the priority, it takes away from the actual work being done. The worker focuses on chain of command, and not the importance of the work in need of accomplishment. For if they go against their boss or manager and say their manager is wrong, the manager will get angry and attempt to punish the subordinate. The subordinate doesn't want punishment, so puts his head down and keeps moving forward, ignoring the physical work for the sake of authority. Rules being the basis, not the goal. Authority being the desire, not the goal. No matter how the people try to convince themselves they are doing everything for honorable reasons, they are still responsible just like the worker doing the windscreen replacement; for he has first hand knowledge of the differences in parts used, and is fully responsible for saying something as soon as he knows something is amiss. The truth begins at core values, and never with authority. And when authority gets out of the way and allows common sense to prevail, quality of work presumes.

An utterly incompetent maintenance manager, criminally incompetent himself!!....was/is inspecting works on our aircraft. He was about the level of a scooter repairman. To not have independant, critical checking of his work was negligence. More than that he should have been working with a really competent person who would not be dominate by the manager and would actually ensure components are correct. Our lives are in the hands of nitwits and deadbeats!! The aircraft shoul have been grounded until staff re there to do the work and new bolts brought-in. Unlike you I have no sympathy for the service-manager's in his negligent, irrational and incompetent behaviour. The use of the word 'should' throughout the recommendations is just 'arse-covering' ...it puts airline under NO obligation to fix the issues.

Most of my life, as a specialist tradesman, I thought of aircraft fitters as the 'creme de la crreme' These programmes show the opposit. My own opinion is that 'recreational' drugs, inadequate sleep, alcohol consumption and stress are contributors. The common idea that when no at work you can do as you please is a dangerous psychopathy. We will never no how many hundreds of thousands or more occurences of poor maintenance and hopelessly bad scrutineering...as in the Concord disaster...have not resulted in catastrophic failure. We have no idea how the unmaintained and barely maintained Qantas and other aircraft will fare after downtime during "Covid" whilst the vastly overpaid and political CEO/CEO's got rid of staff. Qantas CEO before his massive pay-rise proposed to use maintenance staff in Asia to replace generally Australians and Europeans. My own experience at the International airport and in particular during (my) installation of the Carousels for on Sydney-based Australian airline organisation led me to believe that at least one and possibly all these CEO's are not right in the head. I do believe that of Qantas and I have long sold my Qantas shares and will not use that airline owing to the attitude I perceive of that man. By the same token cheap airlines such as Virgin have on every occasion I used them, allowed late-coming asian passengers to bring into the airplane amounts of luggage we have been refused. Virgin also never in my experience stopped anyone using mobile 'phone during take-off and landing. Running airlines on bare-bone policies, 'pissing-off' engineering staff and running at abnormal risks and contesting pay increases whilst overpayng management puts us in air and on the ground at incrased risk. We deserve better treatment.

In critical assemblies like an airplane window, not only would you need to have the correct type and size of screw head, the correct screw diameter, the correct thread pitch, the correct total screw length, and threaded portion length, but you would also need to have a screw with the correct type of metal and the correct hardness rating. I find it amazing that the mechanic would think that simply looking for screws that look the same, would be a good idea. Also, every time I do a mechanical repair on something, that has been repaired previously, by mechanics other than myself, I don't assume that the previous mechanic has used the correct fastener. Only if I am repairing a device where I know that it was made by a reputable manufacturer (for example NOT Briggs and Stratten), and that it has not been previously repaired, will I think that probably the fasteners I take out are the correct fasteners as prescribed by the product engineers. Even then, I check with the manufacturer for service update bulletins. I think one of the main reasons this happened is that mechanics were being pressured by management, to get repairs done in time to make the aircraft ready for scheduled flights.
