this was fun to see on a flight out of Dallas
Their own people? 85% of the passengers were Iranian citizens
I've never seen one while the plane was stationary but I've heard it on the runway and yeah, they're loud as fuck.
I don't get what that plane is doing though. Just blow the bottles and be done with it. Unless the bottles didn't work and the only option was to try to suck the fire through the engine?
Engine fire procedures are
1: cut fuel to engine
2: wait 30s, monitoring internal temps in engine. This gives time to blow out an external fire. (Seems to me what is happening in that video)
3: is to blow the bottle
4: wait 15s more
5: blow the other bottle and exit the aircraft
My general rule is
1.) Fuck this shit
2 .) Blow bottle
3.) See ya later
Are you a pilot?
I still get to taxi planes around though.
Fun, isn't it?
Nothing too good. CRJ200/700 and ERJ175
170/175s for me too
Yeah but have you guys seen Air Disasters?
Yep. I skip the act of nature type ones and only watch the ones caused by human error
The re-enactments make porn acting seem oscar-worthy
They are very bad
Nah, but close
Did you live?
Corporate America is so fucked
saw they were stopping production of the Max and are looking for 10 billion in a loan
So like have we just given up on fixing the planes?
If you read the above article, it appears Boeing’s issues run deeper than just “fixing the software.”
Fuck you, no one ever asked me to wrench it
cost of doing business
Um, how about we send some CEOs to fucking jail for murdering people?
1 person's life is apparently worth $1.4 million.
The bulk of the settlement ($1.7B) will go to other airlines who lost revenue due to grounding of the 737 max.
That's fucking gross
Another Boeing 737 has gone missing in the Philippines
fucking for real?
This guy was fear mongering
early info lends credence to pilot suicide imo
If that’s true then that’s the biggest bullshit move you can make.
Surprised it doesn't happen more often tbh
gonna need a citation
No it was a Boeing 737.
Poor people on board, that plane dropped extremely fast
Some internet experts are saying it looks like it could’ve stalled and that weather wasn’t great around there but man does that look like a deliberate act.
i read this forum every time there's a plane crash
in this case,
- plane practically vertical into the ground/water
- seemingly small debris field (they were already finding lots of debris last night), suggesting no mid-air breakup
- plane pinging up until it's crash, suggesting no significant electrical issue that would cause it to plunge out of the sky
I wonder if it was a pilot trying to recreate a Max-esque crash.
That doesn’t make any sense
seems like most believe it was disorientation/pilot error
Neither does intentionally crashing a plane, killing innocent people, but it’s happened. I’m not saying it’s likely but with the timing coming the day after the announcement of the fine for the Max crashes just seems odd.
At least it was quick for them. That’s really depressing.
