    On the 17th of January 2008 a Boeing 777 from British Airways, flight 38, was flying from Beijing, China to London Heathrow, United Kingdom.
    On final approach to runway 27L, the aircraft lost thrust on both its Rolls Royce RB211 Trent 895-17 engines and the pilots were unable to regain thrust.
    The aircraft crashed down 330m before the runway threshold and the right main gear separated, the left got pushed through the wing and the nose-gear collapsed. Of the 136 passengers and 16 crew, everybody survived the accident with one serious injury and several minor ones. A true miracle!
    In this video, I will cover the causes behind this accident and what we can learn from it.

Great explanation of this event, I actually met the captain of this flight, he gave a talk to our flying club and you explained it as well as he did 👍 He initially got a grilling from the airline and lost his job for deviating from the standard operating procedure but got duly recognised for what he did after the investigation and got his job back!

I'd like you to look at a little-known incident at Heathrow which involved an Evergreen B747 losing all engines over London April 2004 while carrying a military cargo during the US resupply of Israel. The 747 crew then spotted Heathrow and flew what my memory tells me was a spiralling dive over the city centre in order to get onto a gliding approach onto Heathrow, though it was a very long time ago that I read the investigation report. A couple of the outcomes were the lack of charts on board for civilian airports, as it was flying a US military mission and the attitude of the plane while low over heavily populated areas. B747 left Ramstein in German bound for New York.

I purchased Peters book on this event and his life after... BA treated him and his wife like crap, immediately after, during investigation and after... he left the airline (his choice)... BA is not the airline we believe our National carrier to be..... he saved everyone... and BA shat on him. Great PR guys. Ill never fly BA, as their rep clearly is more important to them than care for their team.... just look and read how they treated their cabin crew during Covid, and for many years at both pilot and cabin crew pay awards (no Im not ex crew).... its all public record... go take a look... i.e Vs Sully and his crash and how his airline treated him.....

I am not a particularly good flyer and so I avoid anything to do with "aircraft accidents", however I live a few miles from a former military airbase which is now a civil airport, the explanations given in these videos are excellent, there's no needles drama and everything is explained in detail that most will understand, your calm manner and delivery is perfect, once it is a little safer to travel abroad I will be looking for destinations and flights, this is something that I haven't done for about 10 years, but thanks to how you present these videos I have never felt so confident about flying. Thank you for the time and effort that you put in to explaining everything so clearly, it is much appreciated :)

This is very strange. A modern aircraft has nearly no ram rise. There is only a little ram rise in front of the turbine inlets and under the wings at larger angles of attack when air stagnation happens. The air around the aircraft has to accelerate in order to flow around the body. The air pressure gets lower and the energy for this is taken from the internal energy of the air. This means the air around the surface of the aircraft gets COLDER that the static air temperature. The temperatur increase happens behind the air craft, due to recompression to static air pressure and the energy which is used to overcome the air resistance. So, the static air temperature behind the air craft is a little bit warmer than the static air temperature infront of the aircraft. Only in the supersonic speed range, the air around the air craft gets compressed, leading to the ram rise. The energy for the compression is dissipated in a shock wave behind the aircraft in the inner range of Machs cone. For higher Mach numbers of 4 to 5 air friction becomes dominant. The Concorde and fighter planes don't see this effect because they are still too slowly for that. For Mach numbers of 7+ the heating due to air friction becomes dangerous for the materials. They can start to melt. Aircrafts for such speed have to be equiped with heat resisting coatings like they are used for spacecrafts for a save re-entry into earth atmosphere.

The thing I take from watching your really well made presentations is that one needs to undetstand quickly and very clearly what the priorities are, formulate a practical plan of action and then get on with the job. I am an old guy, 75years. When I was a wet behind the ears 18year old, I was drafted into the military. I was posted into the medical services corps and trained as a combat paramedic - in other words a first responder, but in a highly stressed and often very dangerousn setting. So now you are beginning to get the connection between what you are talking about and what I was trained for. You are bringing to mind for me the crucial need for taking the job seriously or as you put it acting professionally. By the way the country I grew up in was South Africa and the period during which I went through my experiences was in the early to mid 60's when South Africa was involved in a brutal bush war. So I relate to the approach you are talkimg about - take the job very seriously and use your training. Thank you.

I've said this before but I'm addicted to watching these videos by Mentour Pilot , you break it down into sections so much so that i can actually understand what is happening , I've watched many channels relating to aviation but have struggled to understand fully what is happening due to it not being explained very well and certainly not broken into sections with all the relevant information , because Mentour Pilot does break the whole event into sections so that I'm able to understand what is happening, and due to that reason this is by far my favourite channel , so thank you Mentour Pilot for the awesome videos and please keep up the good work!✈️:-)

👏 yes of course we found this episode extremely interesting educational and with your edified explanations of all the systems and their purpose, we are very appreciative of your analysis and time you put into researching all of these episodes. Just my take on it but if they hit the tower, more likely that the the Pilot's cabin would have been destroyed. My first thought would definitely to level the flabs to enable the craft to Glide quickly forward reducing total drag. I think everyone did a great job including you!🏆🏅
