Anyone know how many pax? Could then work out roughly how heavy they were and how much dumping would have been needed to get below MLW.

Out of interest, did they shut the engine down or leave it...

Unless a greater emergency occurred which prevented them either landing safely overweight or discontinuing the approach then this should not have happened. If you can accelerate to V1 and stop on a...

Hi all,

Can I ask which airports currently have Jet2 757s based there please? LBA and MAN I believe, but NCL and EDI as well?
Thanks.

Was the Captain Male or female? It would be unusual for the handling pilot to make RT calls on approach. If so perhaps indicates the co-pilot was out of the loop on what was going on?

I donít hear any sign of incapacitation on the transcript. And the confusion with ATC and which runway theyíre landing on seems a bit of a side show. That doesnít cause an aircraft to do what it did....

I think the confusion is initially that they are planning to approach 02 but land on 20. Later I think the pilot may just have mis-spoke under high workload as the brain easily confuses 02 with 20...

But a circling approach takes quite a lot of mental capacity to perform. If you were partially incapacitated wouldnít you just land straight ahead on the runway which is simple (02)?

I agree with using all available resources when flying a visual, and it would be appropriate to tune the ils if you're planning on flying a 3 degree approach on the centreline. It may not always be...

Yes, the 777 TOGA system is very similar to 737. It is possible to only half press, or miss, the TOGA button which doesn't then engage the A/T. Some pilots have a habit of immediately taking their...
