The El Al B-789 managed to get airborne safely despite the 40 Tonne error in weight while calculating the takeoff performance.
I have written a paper on how and why humans commit such grave errors and ways and means to prevent them.
Donate to keep the machinery up and running well.
Was weather the real culprit in this King Air C90 accident that occurred 20 years ago? Some intriguing but obvious facts and questions that would have changed the probable cause of the accident, not the flight crew.
Poor braking action by the aircraft during the 1st stage of deceleration proved very costly. Was it due to the runway surface which holds water and has a smooth finish? Matters which were not investigated.
Air India Express flight IX-611,a Boeing 737-800, VT-AYD 11th Oct 2018 suffered an accident soon after getting airborne. During takeoff roll, the Captain’s seat recline lock failed and the seat reclined. This resulted in an inadvertent action on the throttles pulling them back inadvertently. The thrust reduced from 98% N1 to 77% N1 and the […]
An unexpected wind shear warning. The crew had disconnected the auto pilot on final approach at Orly. Thereafter no one flew the aircraft for a few tense moments.
Hydroplaning will always occur when operating on a wet or flooded runway. Depending on different factors braking performance can change.
Human factors in accidents play a critical role in attempt to understand why the accident happened and what could the the crew be possibly thinking.
The NTSB determines that the probable cause of this accident was the inappropriate
response by the first officer as the pilot flying to an inadvertent activation of the go-around mode,
A high-reliability organization is an organization that has succeeded in avoiding catastrophes despite a high level of risk and complexity.
