Feels so much like good old /sp/
"It reminds me of the time I was in a plane crash"
It's never part of anyone's plan
To make it look like he was shot on the ground? I don't know
Someone else just asked me this, what does it mean? I mean I know what it means, but where is this meme from.
If I pay they can fly standby yes.
So the thing descended fast and was hightailing it to any airport it could.
Right now with the 0 information we have, my guess is some sort of fire.
>Stops functioning less than half way to Germany, in France
The CL final is in Berlin this year, is this plane crash a critique of Fabregas' performances against PSG?
Some details here. Report said that the engine broke down when the plane took off.
The pilot tried his best to keep the plane from hitting the buildings. The taxi driver and passengers in the taxi were fine.
Were there any survivors of the plane crash? I can't find any reputable info on it.
There were 58 people on tge plane. According to AppleDaily, 15 are sent to hospital, 31 are dead, 12 are still missing.
I seem to recall learning a while back that the primary reason for this is how "crash" is defined by the people who put those statistics together. In short: many things they call "crashes" are not what you and I would call a "crash", and this thereby skews the statistics to make real airplane crashes (like this one) look less likely to kill you than they really are.
dpa says there was a distress call before the crash.
yellow is height, blue is speed.

Most accidents take place at takeoff or landing. I think a lot of crashes that take place at takeoff, the pilot can still safely abort before things get too bad.
If I recall correctly, most landing crashes are due to faulty landing gear, which is a problem good pilots are generally equipped to deal with. Very rarely does a plane just stop working properly 30,000 feet in the air.
>tfw memeing my hardest so I don't have to think about the 142 lives that were just lost and the trauma and devastaion that this will cause to their friends and family
just a german airliner crashing in a french mountainous area that's about it
Aircraft accident means an occurrence associated with the operation of an aircraft which takes place between the time any person boards the aircraft with the intention of flight and all such persons have disembarked, and in which any person suffers death or serious injury, or in which the aircraft receives substantial damage. For purposes of this part, the definition of “aircraft accident” includes “unmanned aircraft accident,” as defined herein.
It's not like they don't know what 720p or higher is. They just look at it from a storage stand point. If the dashcam records for 24 hours straight at 1080p that is gonnna take a lot of storage space
When you get into an accident (or see a plane crash), you stop recording after a few minutes so you have the whole time leading up to the event. The whole setup is less than $100US.
congrats you made it bro your safe
Anyone over 6'2" has the best chance at survival
apparently, something similar happened to a lufthansa airbus a few days ago. but they were able to recover.
After living there for only just a year, there were so many warnings and little things like this everywhere that they were just meaningless after a while
30 seconds before and after the event?
thats fuckin bullshit. why cant i just record all the time?
It happened in November.
This is supposedly how the data looks like when planes are descending in order to land.
Putting my money on an emergency landing gone very wrong.
>all is fine as you watch "The Dark Knight Rises" on you tablet
>oxygen bags deploy
>pilot tells everyone to get into a brace position
>you slowly descend into oblivion
>right before impact all you can hear is screams
>ipad still on: "you're a big guy"
what did my sides do to deserve this!!!!
i don't think there's a safer time to fly with an airline than right after one of their planes crashed tbh.
people are so irrational about these things.
Oh wow. Good on the pilot for putting it in the drink instead of crashing into the road.
Some say that the pilot's reaction was very basic, or that the plane lost lift in the left wing, causing the turn.
No kidding, that was some serious flying. He was dropping like a rock and as soon as he banked to make the water he lost what little lift he had. A few seconds earlier and he would have hit the bridge head on, a few seconds later and he would have missed. At least that's what it looked like to me.
Basques are always a question mark
There is a chance that something blew up at altitude but didn't completely blow up the plane...
But overall I think it's <5% chance of terrorism.
You're right - the brake lights appear orange, but definitely is the case.
I can't find too much information but it appears some modern cars flash hazard lights after sudden deceleration from highway speeds.
>Malaysian Airlines that disappeared
>another Malaysian Airlines disaster
>TransAsia crash into bridge
>Air France crash
what the fuck is happening? seriously, I know for a fact that this many crashes is not normal. this is all from a year time frame
>It looks like he started to vmc. Loss of directional control when he tried to clear the wall. If the left engine is out and he reaches the critical airspeed at which directional control can be maintained the airplane will roll and yaw into the inoperative engine no matter what the pilot does.
Port prop was stationary and feathered to minimise drag.
There is another video I believe from the car just behind this one where you can see the props more clearly. The port prop is definitely stopped.
>mfw flying across the pacific in two days
The only thing I'd be qualified to help with in this mess if it happened in the US would be to call 911 and take document the scene for the media (journalism degree).
I wouldn't, and who does, just happen to have a boat to get to the plane.
The one thing I can guarantee is that if you are panicking you don't try to be a hero. Unless you can keep your cool you will fuck things up. Other than that, it is very situational.
In a way this coverage maintains the irrational fear people have of certain things. Same with terrorism which is less likely to harm you than a lightning strike.
Don't hold your breath.
Just to let you cunts know you're all going to get banned for off topic posting

3. THE PILOT AN HERO
Any aeronautical engineers want to chime in on whether or not that plane was capable of dumping fuel, if they'd have had a chance in that timespan, and if it would even be a good idea or not?
Dumping fuel is only necessary when you are too heavy to land. It's also a slow process, something you don't think about when your aircraft is out of control or close to that point.
I hope you guys realize this is huge. Obviously an act of terrorism. The question is who would commit such a gruesome crime?!?!
We're looking for a group/organization with global influence that has a reason to hate the Germans.
Think /sp/, think!
I used to be all "Holy shit I'm flying!" and now it's more like "I'm in a metal tube 40,000 ft up in the air and I could die any moment".
The more I've learned the more comfortable I am with flying, the amount of stuff that has to go wrong to actually down a certified passenger aircraft is quite significant.
>no fun allowed
Happening threads are the lifeblood of /sp/ and what made /sp/ great.
I'm not some outlaw faggot, but as long as it's a one off event like a plane crash or an invasion, in my opinion it should be allowed to stay.
Not really. You cannot control the actions of others drivers. Go watch that video of the nuns in a car that was hit by an oncoming car. They did everything right and correct. Didn't matter one bit
You don't know enough about the incredible safety mechanisms and safety measures airplanes employ.
take comfort in the fact that it is by far the safest form of travel. If I feel stressed on a plane, I just ask myself why I'm not a nervous wreck while driving a car, and then I remember my emotions are stupid.
A metal tube that bends and twitches. They never show that in the movies.
goddamnit man take off always seemed like the easy part... u just created some flight anxiety for me.
You know the funny thing about it?
I actually considered flying to Nizza with German Wings, thanks to following bargain.
It would have been my suicide trip anyways.
Topkek, would have spared me the work to do it myself.
Don't sweat it. Engine failures on takeoff are critically dangerous and so commercial airliners are designed to withstand them and pilots train engine-failure-on-takeoff scenarios all the time in the simulator.
The Queen of Spain?
Yes, pilots train this maneuver all the time. And one reason these are trained in the simulator is because they are dangerous to train in the airplane. The only hull loss at ExpressJet airlines occurred while training this maneuver in Beaumont, TX. So....
Oh man i fucking hate take offs.
I'm sorry, but did the people already die? Oh, that's right. The bodies weren't even found yet. In fact, the plane still might be flying. Does not landing a plane on shedule count as a crash? Is that what you're saying? Because if you're saying that I can assure you that you're wrong. Why would you make this topic when the plane still hasnt been found? The French are still searching for the plane right now and they have been the best country at rescueing dead bodies for how many years now? They're looking for one of the best planes in the world who just happens to have a small delay because of a secret investiation of a criminal flight guest . But you know what? They may still fucking live. The French are one of the bravest fucking people in the world, they went 2-0 in World Wars so far and would of won the world dominance in their leader wouldn't have been a manlet. Maybe you should shut the fuck up before you make retarded topics like this. You know why? Because you're going to be embarrassed when the big guys get off the plane and someone bumps this topic. Are you a fucking drunk? Are you retarded? Are you autistic? You are a fucking idiot and you should never make a topic on this board again and I'm fucking serious. I almost have a feeling you're the only guy making all these Bane topics because you're a faggot hater who doesn't like the movie because it's literal peotry. Fuck you, be good at something in YOUR life and then maybe try to troll these fucking people on the 4chan, like I give a fuck. It's so easy to spot out your threads now, you're a retard. Always doing stupid shit like this. Why don't you try to be a good poster? Just for once? For once in your fucking life try not to make a topic like this. That's just you, you're always right at getting it wrong. Fuck you. You are nothing.
>King of Spain speaks perfect English
>Hollande carries on speaking in French
Mechanical engineer here, close enough I guess. The ATR-72 is capable of dumping fuel, but as the plane had just taken off they probably wouldn't be given authority to dump fuel that low.
Do you have a source for that? I'd imagine on a plane whose MTOW and MLW are so close together that the plane wouldn't be equipped to dump. I didn't see anything on the overhead either.
First class armchair pilot, concur that it would not be advisable to bother with dumping fuel if decent rate is faster then gliding rate, with incoming metro area's or no clear ''fall path''.
>Any videos actually?
From the livestream, they reported that the taxi driver and the female passenger suffered mild injuries and are in the hospital- mostly scratches and a head injury on the driver, from what I've heard.
I believe the blame would go to the loadmaster, who, according to Wikipedia, "ensure cargos is placed on the aircraft in such a way as to prevent overloading sensitive sections of the airframe and cargo floor."
If you are asking about the bagram crash that was a cargo plane.
some military equipment (tanks I think) broke loose on take off and rolled to the rear of the plane which totally messed up the weight distribution and made the plane impossible to control and a crash inevitable.
those swiss critical thinking skills.
crashes happened. the 24-news cycle is still a fairly new invention, therefore we have every instance shoved down our collective throats until something more newsworthy occurs.
planes are still, by far, the safest way to travel
