Respect to those who lost family.
In 22 years in the LHS of various multi crew aircraft, including Q400 and larger and faster machines I have flown with numerous F/Os with 300 hours or less, and whilst they may have still had things to learn about operating the aircraft, as indeed I did and still do, I never had any doubt that they would use the words ďgo-aroundĒ and ďI have controlĒ as required.

At the risk of being taken as non pc, there are possibly some cultures where a more inherent respect for ones elders or superiors might mean that isnít a good thing, but Iím pretty sure thatís not the case in Australia, any more than it is in Europe.

Whst that, plus a lack of proper CRM training (ASIT etc) may have had a bearing on this accident, itís very unfair to suggest that is the case at every airline in the world which employs low houred first officers who havenít spent years flying a C206 single crew around the Boondocks.

US Bangla plane crash cctv footage at Kathmandu Airport

Various video angles of the crash just recently posted on youtube and is shocking to watch the plane fly over the terminal and apron area.

That's incredible footage, especially the one over the terminal... video really shows what a mess these two made of the approach, can't quite work out how this happens, just trying to imagine what kinda of pilot can try and salvage this approach.

Truly Bizarre
