Prospector,

Fair enough.

That was not one of Chippendale's better reports, from altering the CVR transcript outside of accepted protocols to alleging the flight crew were not deceived by the...

Prospector,

Then why have an INS nav track that means the DC10 will be practically overhead the radar before it picks up the aircraft and VHF contact is possible...? The Byrd reporting point was...

Prospector,

I think you take us to exactly the sort of systemically unsafe issues that I have alluded to.

Say 3 Captains were designated in 1977 to be the specialist PIC for all the Antarctic...

Prospector,

The SOPs were a bit of a red herring. I think the judge painstakingly proved the "real" SOP was "give the passengers a good sightseeing time". Retired Capt Wilson (RCU) effectively...

A cavalier approach to an interesting system. Link to Takata:

I don't mean PNF is still tired, but he entered the cockpit after his rest break a mere 10 minutes before it all kicked off (i.e. UTC-3 is Brazilian take-off time, the layover destination). The first...

"Mutiny was alive".....

My instinct - if PNF had decisively taken command, PF would have willingly acquiesced and happily run the UAS drill.

Put yourselves in the shoes of the PF - he was...

Mr Optimistic

The PNF in the LHS, when the A/P disconnected, could well have been asleep until sometime between 1H 55 and 2H into the flight. The A/P disconnects at 2H 10 05, the stall alarm sounds at 2H 10 10 and...

Interesting. I can see a transition from yoke to SS as evolutionary, with the right training, but the loss of artificial feedback (including interconnectivity to the PNF, and also the throttles)...

Mr Optimistic

It has only become "SS v yoke", which is somewhat of a misnomer, because the AB implementation of the former does not mirror the traditional characteristics of the latter and the flight crew never...

A complete tangent, for which I apologise in advance to all others, but what did Andre Turcat make of a SS on the test SST?

We ended-up with ram's horn yoke, FBW and elevons with artificial feel....

Re: incremental change.

Weight dictated FBW on any SST, with the Concorde's famous rams's horn control columns and "feedback". Built by the predecessors of Airbus.

Touch wood, but CFIT is not the killer it once was (if still too frequent).

LOC has been the real concern in recent years.......

Thanks for your comments. A few points:

(1) Definitely one for the human factors experts, but unlikely PNF grasped just how far back/NU the PF's inputs were. Not relevant if CRM is perfect, but...
