Imagine yourself lining up on the runway, thinking you’re going to have a safe flight, but shit starts going wrong right as the nose lifts.
>>1262869To add to that, there was a video camera mounted on the nose of the plane and it broadcasted it's view to a video screen inside the cabin.
>>1262869you are like a little babywatch this
I never think I'm going to have a safe flight
>>1263258Hold my Heineken.
>>1263345Based and gaanpilled
>>1262869There's not much you can do, but pray.
>>1263397>pray on a planeThat's what terrorists do. Are you a terrorist, son?
>>1263397>tfw your plane does an emergency landing but then wastes time taxing the burning plane to the end of the runway
>>1262869Things could be worse.
>>1262869Imagine burning up alive in the space shuttle in 2002 >>1263397Was the plane ok? Why didn’t they extinguish the fire with a fire extinguisher
>>1263397Stupid question here. If you accidentally Mach 2.0 on airplane, will it put down the flame, or it will make it burn even more?
>>1263519Well, for one you'll disintegrate midair, and if somehow that doesn't happen, the exterior will melt away. Then the supersonic air infiltrates into the airframe and it disintegrates anyways.If none of the above happens, then congrats, either you're in the Concorde era, in the new supersonic era (Release date TBA), or flying a fighter jet.
>>1262869*muffled naval laughter in the distance*
>>1263518It collided with a small plane fucking up the control surfaces.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PSA_Flight_182
>>1262869Imagine being in the first few rows of this one.
>>1263586>Flight 191I recall reading that the blood mark in front of the window on the right is from the one flight attendant who died. It's where her head smacked into the fuselage on the way out.
This is why I don't fly in passenger jetsI don't give a shit about your statistics
>>1263850Imagine, you will be in news for a week or more. If you crash on a car or derail on train - nobody would give a fuck. In best case you will be in local news once
>>1263586my dad saw the whole thing when he was in Maui
>>1263397how does a ruptured fuel tank cause you to lose control of the damn thing
>>1263887Look at the huge gouge in the leading edge of the wing, Mr. Magoo
>>1263549Lets assume that plane can do Mach 2.0
>>1262869Seriously, how did this thing beat the L-1011?
>>1263498>pilot was a 'slow learner'>copilot was substandard, had to pay for his own training to keep job>used entire 13,000 ft runway to stop>stopped taxiing 2m40s after touchdown>cabin pressurization maintained preventing cabin doors from being opened before everyone overcome with smoke>emergency ground personnel wait 23 mins before successful entry because engines were still running. Cause flashover when outside oxygen entered cabinWow. This is just fucked.
Watching Air Crash Investigation has made me nervous during takeoff and landing. MH370 seems a pretty comfy way to go. Hypoxia then you become fish food.
>>1266028Helios flight 522. If only that lone guy had saved the day. Imagine the story that could've been. Must've been creepy being in a cabin with all the people slumped over dead/unconcious.
>>1265893Because Rolls-Royce couldn't into high-bypass engines and screwed up the entire TriStar program
>>1266058If he landed, he would have landed with a truck load of vegetables.
>>1263564AEGIS: 1BOEING: 0
>>1263258>they descended below 7,000 feet (2100 m) before returning to a climb. The aircraft reached 13,000 feet (4000 m) before entering an uncontrollable descent into the mountains and disappearing from radar at 6:56 p.m. at 6,800 feet (2100 m). In the final moments, the wing clipped a mountain ridge. During a subsequent rapid plunge, the plane then slammed into a second ridge, then flipped and landed on its back.They almost crashed it, then decided they could do better and really crashed the son of a bitch
>>1266004what do you expect from arabs? if their air forces are terrible then their civilian aviation is bound to be magnitudes worse.
>be flying on a trip to japan>youre settling in when suddenly you are defended by the wall next you you ripping open>next thing you see is the three rows in front of you are gone and you can see into the night sky through a giant hole
>>1266214Fun fact: they kept that plane flying for almost 30 mins but no other pilot could maintain flight for more than 2 mins in a simulator re-creating the crash condition.
>>1266240>be flying on a trip to japan>United Airlines Flight 811 was a regularly scheduled airline flight from Los Angeles to Sydney, with intermediate stops at Honolulu, and Auckland.
>>1263586The really amazing thing is that the fuselage bottom didn't entirely snap after the roof and sides went.
>>1266450I think I read somewhere that was what some Boeing engineers expressed too. I do recall that witnesses on the ground said there was a visible deflection downward in the fuselage while in flight.
>>1262869I would much rather the plane crash right after takeoff. If you're gonna kill me don't waste my fucking time by crashing mid-flight or on the landing just get it over with.
>>1262869Still one of the safest means of traveling. If something happens, you're fucked but the odds are still in your favor of getting to the destination safe and sound.
>>1270452Not necessarily true. There are so many redundancies in place that when something goes wrong you have a very high chance of survival. I think something like 90% of all declared emergencies end up landing safely without any deaths.
