What Pilots Do When Their Airplane Fails | Mayday: Science of Disaster | Wonder

When something goes wrong onboard a passenger airliner, the pilot and crew are sometimes the last chance of salvation. They can also cause the crash accidentally. In the cases of China Airlines Flight 006 and Aeroflot Flight 593 it is the pilots skill and quick thinking that saved hundreds of lives. Who's in the cockpit when something goes wrong could make all the difference.

This special looked at accidents and incidents where problems with the interface between crew members and on-board avionics were a factor and the causes of those problems.

Agreed, you should never and I mean NEAVER, let anybody that is on experienced sit in the captain's seat cluding if there if it's their own child to set in the captain's seat, and hold the controls that is acceptable for a professional pilot to do that.

The first example was not an instance of pilots relying too much on automation. No airspeed or altitude over the ocean at night, automation made no difference at all.

why dont they have a visible hanging string with a small weight on the end of it hanging in front of the piolets so that they would know if they were upside down or not when the plane gets out of hand

The Aeroperu flight was actually equipped with FOUR altimeters. 3 of them were barometric altimeters and when they gave a reading of "0" when the plane was obviously off the ground it should have been a red flag to both pilots. The 4th altimeter is a Radio altimeter (radar altimeter) and was obviously working. The radar altimeter's reading would have been visible on the primary flight displays. Unfortunately the controller saw the (incorrect) barometric altimeter reading on their radar screen - as the aircraft's transponder was transmitting data from the barometric altimeter - so when they asked ATC for their altitude and ATC *confirmed* the *incorrect* altitude.

To the pilot who let a kid fly a commercial jet you have a special place in the Darwin Awards by being so smart to become a captain of a commercial airliner and killing everyone on board including yourself cause you wanted to impress a little kid that is beyond stupidity.

As a builder and scratch builder of large RC airplanes, when mine fail I go to the bar with a friend and drink Coka Cola until my tears stop flowing. I lost an Extra 260 once that actually made me drink almost a whole case of Coka Cola by myself. Luckily a friend was able to get off work early to support my morals. I don't adapt well to failure.

18:07 - that captain made such a careless error about something so basic and yet to have been able to come out of a nosedive like that with seconds before it would be impossible for them to fix the situation and they would crash into the ocean, then to be able to fly a plane that was missing various parts, and then perfectly land the plane are signs that he is an incredible and extremely talented pilot.

why would you let the autopilot fly the plane when it's behaving unusually and there's three of you in the cockpit? Seems obvious to me that you would immediately start flying the plane 100% manually.

There's an axiom in aviation called aviate, navigate, communicate. The Air China crew threw that entirely out the window, if they hadn't broke into VMC when they did, their 747 and everyone on it would be deader than a doornail.

With the first incident, no amount of training could've gotten then out of that situation. It was night, they can see nothing at all, and their instruments aren't working. There's nothing else. It's like you're driving down the road and you suddenly go blind and deaf. You have absolutely no idea what's going on and there's no way too find out.

Downvoted. This is a speculative production. The first error happens at 1:40. The narrator says the airplane is a Cirrus SR20 (single engine airplane). What we see, is a Piper Pa-44 Seminole (twin engine airplane). And it doesn't get better after that...

It's quite wong to blame here thr "automation" of the airplane, while the problem was in the basic pitot/static system that is part of every aircraft that has instruments in the cockpit and is not automated. To blame computers for this crash is completely wrong. It was the problem of failing maintenace procedures and the "walk-around check" that was not performed by the pilot as it should have been by the pilot. - Please stick to the facts - keep those "reports" clean. Put more effort to understand aviation than just make simulated videos.

In the first case with the pitot tubes taped over, how did they get down the runway and rotate... without indicated airspeed? The airspeed indicator should have read zero the entire time.

Just a guess, but maybe when the plane is on the ground it uses the rotation of the wheels to measure speed. It would be more accurate.

Why in the heck did the pilots and the controller not know that confirming the altitude with ATC is pointless? That right there could very likely be the critical mistake and more than the tape on the (sp?) pinions.
