From Takeoff To Emergency Landing: A Timeline Of Southwest Flight 1380 | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC
Seems that everyone has forgotten that there were 2 pilots on that aircraft, plus the cabin crew.
So why is everyone fixated just on the 'US Navy trained' 10 Million dollar FEMALE pilot??
The problem with the engine inspections is that they are basing them on flight HOURS and not flight CYCLES (takeoffs & landings). .Southwest is an airport hopper flying short intercity routes, where other operators have longer flights. The engine sees its highest stresses at TAKEOFF power. The southwest 737 engines therefore, see a higher cumulative maximum number of stress cycles over the same period of time than other operators. Failures are due to CYCLES.
ummm...at 5:21 the lady goes with no hydraulics the captain could land...let me explain this. Hydraulics allow the plane to pitch up/down, and bank left/right. If the pilots had no control of hydraulics they would basically be doomed. The plane would most likely start a nose dive, then gradually raise the nose back up loosing speed, and then nose dive again until ground. (assuming it did not bank left or right). Also, the second engine can provide hydraulics perfectly fine, and if the second engine went out, then the apu would supply it. It would be pretty much impossible to land//fly without hydraulics.
Why so much emphasis on her gender? She did a great job; isn't that enough? Gender is totally and completely irrelevant to the story.
No one of consequence doubts that women can fly planes and handle major emergencies. There's nothing to prove there. Just let her have the credit as a skilled, competent, and remarkable individual.
It’s crazy the passenger who was almost sucked out the window sat on row 14 the window seat I would have definitely chosen that row because it’s my favorite number and I always like the seat next to the window it’s scary to know what happened
As well... the flight crew, or for that fact, a "woman pilot"... were absolutely, NOT heros... they were PROFESSIONAL Aviators. That is a much more accurate and complimentary term. Stop insulting the flight crew intelligence by calling them "heros"; it is actually rather demeaning, including the fact that the captain was a "woman"... who cares? She along with the first officer, are highly trained professionals, and that is why this occurrence got on the ground successfully. The flying public in general, has absolutely no clue as to the level of training involved. There is a lot, and that is normal.
In this post-truth era, (where objective fact-finding and analysis now takes second-place to emotional diatribes and 140 character jabber-tweets...); let's let the NTSB do their work; ignore statements from "terrified" passengers and look at what actually happened,. shall we? (Yes the terrified passengers have a story to tell... however, they are most certainly the LEAST qualified to give any analysis as to what actually happened...)
I'm noticing that the media says things about the descent rate like it was caused by the engine failing and that it was bad, but that is standard protocol during a depressurization. Pilots are supposed to descend quickly in this situation, which the pilot did without delay, so good on them! Also, this has me wanting to not sit in the window seat considering she was wearing her seatbelt, which ripped from the force. (Now that I think about it, she was probably pulled up and out of her seatbelt than it actually ripping. Can someone clarify?)
TAMMIE YOU ARE TO BE HIGHLY COMMENDED FOR YOUR VERY PROFESSIONALHANDLING OF THIS NEAR DISASTER, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES SHOULD PREPARE A COMMENDATION FOR SUCH A GREAT COOL HEADED HANDLING OF THIS EVENT! YOUR F~18 HORNET EXPERIENCE WAS TESTED ON THIS CIVILIAN FLIGHT, AND JUST LIKE PILOT SULLEY YOU PULLED IT OFF IN A PROFFESSIONAL MANNER...
Hello My name is Steve Calabrese..
I was a passenger on Southwest 3299 which had a similar failure in July 2015. Here is the national news story and my interview.
That night I believed we were all going to die I kid you not.
I am dedicating more of my time to learning more about the CF engines and why this occurs with the fanjet blade.
Luckily we were only traveling 150mph on takeoff and our cabin was not under pressure (which resulted in 1308 fatality - they were at 539Mph and under cabin pressure) but we were still about to cartwheel off the runway or a hydrolic line or fuel line could have ruptured or the millions of other scenarios could have occurred.
We were saved that night by 2 wonderful ex-military pilots who I owe my life to.
There is no doubt in my my mind Tammy Jo Shults is a hero as well as captain # 2 and are in this same esteem as our pilots.
I was the only passenger to stay back because I fly so much a week for work I just had to take a break. Just didnt feel right.
On the way to the hotel in the shuttle van I had a heart to heart with those pilots and all I can tell you is they know what the issue is. Southwest knows what the issue is. I could feel the issue developing before the blade broke loose..
The issue is 3 things: 1.)metal fatigue 2.) Vibration that causes fatigue 3.) Time before service intervals to not let the vibration exceed the timeframe of service interval and in turn replace the blade and assembly before time and vibration constants intersect on the graph and cause fatal metal fatigue.
My heart goes out to everyone on that flight. It could have been much worse, yet it was pretty bad it had to happen at all.
I plan to help anyone and everyone not ever have to go through anything like that stressful night in July 2015.
Thank you for reading my post, I encourage anyone and everyone to write every airline and General Electric (who got the engines from the French Aerospace company-who probably got them from China or Malaysia) to take responsibility and replace those engines...Our lives and national pride in American aviation and being a world leader in jet travel depend on it.
Anyone who wishes to join me on my quest to change the CF engine please email me at calabresesteve4atgmaildot.com
I never take pilots for granted and I always thank them if I see them through an open cockpit door after landing. People should be more aware that these people get few thanks from the people whose lives are in their hands.
Boeing and Southwest conspiracy shaving quality control checks. Pilots did their job. Southwest management killed that woman. But that's what corporate crooks do. For instance Monsanto and the oil and chemical companies commit genocide daily.
The worst way to die is in an airline crash..had the engine been totally ripped out it would have been the end. it just was not there time to go..kudos to pilots, good samaritans. RIP passenger. lawsuits to come.
The plane still had flight control, unlike the DC 10 and the true hero pilots who controlled it with the engines remember. I have zero respect for women doing the mans job. It has created a sexual identity crisis in our land resulting in angry men who feel marginalized and left out. Some act out. So stop it feminist women who want to be vain tomboyish and tough like men. It is so ugly. Women like that are disgusting. Be a women and enjoy the femm role of a stay at home mother. She is a real hero. One who loves her family. Auto pilot could have landed the jet in this scenario. She is no hero. Do not be another vain woman asserting for the role of a man. Femm up
1. The airplane descended to "15000ft" not because the aircraft had lost engine n.1 but because of decompression, causing the pilots to perform a rapid descent to a safer altitude where oxygen is breathable. Even do they never explicitly said that the engine was the cause of it, they made it seem as such.
2. The airplane performed a continuous descent to the airport, it never leveled off at 15000 feet.
3. The captain was not solely responsible for the emergency; there was also a co-pilot, a flight crew, air traffic controllers, ground personnel, all of whom with their coordination and years of experience were involved in pulling off what they did.
It takes a joint effort by all crew members and pilots onboard an emergency scenario. Including control tower to clear traffic for an emergency landing. Yes in an emergency situation Captain takes control of plane but the copilot does the prep and communications
Don't get me wrong for I have nothing but deep admiration and respect for military pilots. But civilian pilots are just as well trained, professional and calm in emergency situations. Let us not forget Cap. Alfred C. Haynes, a civilian, who crash-landed a DC10 (and saved 172 lives) at Sioux City, Iowa on July 19, 1989 after suffering a catastrophic failure of its tail-mounted engine, which led to the loss of many flight controls. Or the pilots (civilian trained) of the Aloha Airlines that lost a big section of its fuselage in flight.
It looks to me that God did his all mighty to guard these people with protection, but the devil is always on the run for souls, he pulled her out the window but guardian angels and civilians pulled her in, however he’ll never be satisfied. God bless this pilot and god bless everyone one that plane, amen
Dear Tammie ! hats off ! you are a real hero and I am showing this video to all my family and friends ! that so much to learn on how to handle tough situations in your life - you did a great job ! you are role model now ! GOD BLESS YOU !
