No, not passing the blame, but recognising that it appears ATC could have done a bit more than it seems they did.

I've not heard the entire ATC recording, but from first spotting they were high and fast, and offering delaying vectors, ATC should have paid particular attention to this approach. An observer with...

The accident started with whatever caused them to be high energy at 3500ft 4km out. It was made much more likely by whatever caused the crew to reject the ATC offer of delaying vectors to lose...

If he'd seen the pod strike and sparks, and whether or not he had it would be hard to miss the smoke trails on climb-out, did the ATCO tell the aircraft they'd struck the runway? If not, why not?

That implies that the controller should have taken a particular interest in this approach. Was no-one in the tower watching as they descended with gear retracted, banged the engines on the runway,...

Why did no-one notice?

From what I can see from the videos and stills, the U/C, flaps & slats are retracted in the still shot of the scraped nacelles, but the U/C is down in every video clear enough to see. The videos are...

Hoiked off the ground stalled because the tail wasn't high enough? The right wing dropped first, then the left, then the left tip struck the ground.

Gear down and at least partial flaps would be a normal configuration to cross the final approach fix for a circling approach in most planes, I would guess that is the case for the SD-330. It is...

That explains it, then

Having a shufti at FR24 a bit before midnight last night I saw what claimed to be an N-reg Cessna 172 climb out of Luton and head west, ending up at FL380 and 450kt. Had me scratching my head a bit.

Perhaps the most surprising thing about that picture for me is that the aircraft is actually climbing, with a flap missing, what looks like an engine out, unknown other aerofoil damage, U/C damage,...

I watched Ozark DC-9's backing themselves out of gates like that in the mid-80's - I think at St. Louis.

And, it occurs to me, so might have ATC. Was the downwind takeoff queried? Was the reciprocal runway offered and declined? If so, what reason was given? Has anyone found an ATC recording?

I hadn't looked at the layout. I take your point. A pity the fence, building and tree were there, eh? Without them they'd have had a clear mile of flat for the ground effect to do its work.

So the...

I think you have a point there. In this video of Aerosucre's final 727-100F flight before preservation, the low passes are very low indeed:

If the right wing clouted that black structure, whatever it is, the damage to slats, flaps or aileron might well have rendered the turn uncontrollable. Looking at the video it...

Looking at this video here:

On the videos

- you can also see that the 727 has knocked down the reinforced concrete fence posts on both sides of the road. That must have hurt a bit. It's perhaps surprising the aircraft stayed airborne as long...
