Misunderstanding due to similar callsigns causing two airliners on crossing runways to initiate takeoff. :?

That was close!!! Sweet Lord! Nothing serious, other than overheated brakes, happened... Great job!

Cirrus SR22 ferry flight from California to Sidney, Australia get a fuel transfer problem just past the point of no return on the way to Hawaii and have to ditch using the ballistic parachute. Really well edited video.

Wow. Those ferry pilots are certainly amongst some of the bravest pilots - it must take nerves of steel to fly a tiny aircraft over an awful lot of water!

Some are sheer horror stories, like the guys who tried to ferry a Cessna 337 SkyMaster from USA to I think it was Sweden and did not have it fully winter kitted and with no particular survival training. Both engines sputtered out at about the latitude of Baffin Island in the middle of the winter, and the aircraft took all the emergency equipment with it when it sunk, except their dry suits. With no shelter, emergency beacon or light it was a cold, cold night on an ice sheet, but they were found the next morning and they survived.

Skymaster Forum - Skymaster Arctic Circle Ditching (archived) Interesting thread with the news story, the story from one of the pilots and, being a forum, a lot of analysis.

This one could easily have gotten a lot worse. All of a sudden the tail rotor temporarily lost effectiveness and when the pilot compensated for that one of the skids was damaged quite heavily.

This one is rather tragic. The NTSB investigation found faults with both of the pilots, with the operator and with the FAA. In fact they repeated recommendations to FAA from earlier investigations to demand that not just the major airlines, but also much smaller operators should set up safety management systems (SMS) and flight data monitoring (FDM), which would likely have caught the glaring deviations from the standard operating procedures (SOP) of the pilots. Fortunately they had no passengers and nobody on the ground was killed.

Both the pilot in command (PIC) and second in command (SIC) had prior performance deficiencies, like not being proactive with check lists. The SIC, while having a commercial pilots license (CPL), multi-engine and instrument ratings, and a Learjet type rating (though strictly as a SIC), performed so badly when he was hired by the operator that:[1]

After the SIC’s simulator training session on September 18, 2016, the instructor noted the following:

  • Struggled with normal procedures
  • Did not perform takeoff checks correctly or know what to look for during the checks
  • Did not know how to start the engines
  • Crashed on first takeoff due to incorrect flight director settings
  • Unable to control speed and altitude during the stall series
  • Flew inverted on unusual attitude module
  • Crashed on landing during an ILS approach


On the accident flight:

  • The flight plan filed by the PIC had a cruising altitude of FL270 for a 80 NM flight! (That would put top of descent, ToD, 27 kft * 3 = 81 NM from the destination!)
  • The cockpit voice recorder (CVR) of the flight had recorded an average of one expletive every 14 seconds! (With the very most of them before things really went askew!)
  • No checklist were completed!
  • They did not listen to the full ATIS for Teterboro and mainly looked for QNH! Winds were gusty.
  • While the SIC by operator SOP was not allowed to be pilot flying (PF) the PIC had him do that, even when the SIC requested to hand over the controls!
  • Even though the autopilot was engaged the SIC had serious troubles managing the throttle to maintain airspeed (this aircraft did not have autothrottle, A/T)!
  • No landing briefing was performed!
  • Instead of going around the PIC tried to do a less than 1 NM S turn with two about 90 degree turns to the runway! (that is when the PIC lost control due to stall and loss of control)

In essence I would expect this to sometimes happen in multiplayer, but not to happen in real life. :| :roll:

Gruesome. Also, that change in the pilots voice. :(

"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
