You do, of course mean Asiana Airlines. Same, country, same culture, but a different airline.Just received this video from a pilot friend.
This seems to corroborate previous post.
Pilots may well have put the gear handle down, and while distracted by their unstable approach did not pay attention to the gear warning chime that was telling them that it had not in fact gone down due excessive speed.
It also appears that they skipped not once but twice before lifting off to attempt the go around for a second try.
Not sure but may have been two Captains in the cockpit, this may have led to one being hesitant about criticising the other about being too high to close in, which under normal SOP’s and CRM (Crew Resource Management) would require the PNF (Pilot Not Flying) to call for the approach to be aborted and for a go around be initiated.
They also had been warned by ATC that they appeared to be to high for the approach.
The pilot of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA)'s crashed plane ignored three warnings from the air traffic controllers about the aircraft's altitude and speed before the landing, saying he was satisfied and would handle the situation, according to a report on Monday.www.ndtv.com
This reluctance to intervene by the PNF was directly implicated in the 777 Korean Airlines crash at San Fransisco.
As the investigation of the SF airline crash shifts to what happened inside the cockpit, a question is emerging: What role did Korean culture play?www.cnbc.com
I would imagine that is about as likely as a heatwave in June in Britain.I see the Grauniad was careful not to comment on the faking and cheating in a professional body. Who knows; perhaps that might be endemic to other professions, including many qualifications that facilitate entry and employment in UK?
Absolutely. Manchester has been deserted of late because of Covid. I've noticed the daily China flight is back up and running though.Other than Qatar and the odd sod, they're about the only things flying out of MAN with anything approaching regularity... for some odd reason. The 'issues' were regarding the 747s. They were given triples as a thank you for TWOT... apparently.
don’t be disrespecting others cultural norms.More on fake licensing:
A third of Pakistani pilots have a 'fake' licence after paying someone else to take their test, it has been revealed, amid a probe into the Karachi crash and the plane's pilot Sajad Gull (pictured).www.dailymail.co.uk
Thanks for that, I had seen comments that ATC were culpable and was curious about why. Answered here:Preliminary report from Pakistan's AAIB:
