  1. I've seen this video before.I watch a lot of aircrash investigations.Not because I'm into death and destruction!!But I'm interested in its cause and the measures taken to rectify the problem.Well,there's never been fatal A380 crash,and fingers crossed there never will be.The job that flight crew did in getting that giant beast back on the ground was nothing short of miraculous.Karlene,where do you look in your checklists for total systems failure?What do you do when all your instruments are giving contradictory readings?
    The job those guys did ranks up there with Capt.Sully and "Can't make Teterboro,going in the Hudson"
    Heroes,every one of Yahoo!

    1. John, Thank you so much for the comment! And the reason I've selected the research I have for my dissertation. Just as they attempted to find fault with Captain Sully, they destroyed Hoot Gibson for the same thing. Notice those who survived theses accidents without a checklist and training, were the old salt captains... highly experienced.

      What happens in the future when these events happen and we have a cadre of pilots without that experience, and who have been taught only which buttons to push? But the buttons don't work and the pilot doesn't know what to do.... then we're in trouble.

      This is the essence of what I'm working toward in my PhD. When you have a chance to read Flight For Sanity, you will see what airlines are doing to pilots who are fighting for safety. And how the FAA is dealing with known research and where my research is headed.

      Thank you so much for your comment!
