    For a moment, I thought they were going to make it. Not being a pilot and just playing simulators where this would happen, I would only make it into the runway just to hit the ground fully. The ability of this men is unhuman.

    I don't know anything about how a plane works but in my eyes these pilots managed to acheive something as noble as Sully did in the river Hudson. It's too bad so many had to die but it doesn't make them less heroic.

    Douglas has been touted as building very safe aircraft, but this incident has a similarity with the first rash of DC-10 crashes that started with a blown-out cargo door. In that case what should have been a relatively small problem was catastrophic because the cabin floor collapsed (due to the depressurizing of the cargo hold), and that, like this incident's single engine failure, took out all flight controls.

    My friend Darren Ane survived this crash, he now works as a flight attendant for Southwest. I guess he figured the odds of being in 2 plane crashes is pretty remote. I can’t imagine what that was like.

    Wow, what an Event! It is obvious that all 4 of these trained pilots worked together as a 'Team', worked with what they had to save as much as they could. In my eyes, all of the pilots on this Airliner had supporting input into the outcome of this incident. If any one of them were missing during this event it may have had a very different outcome. To all the pilots including Captain Alfred C. Haynes, First Officer William R. Records, Second Officer Dudley J. Dvorak and Training Instructor Capt. Dennis E. Fitch and the Entire Crew of United Flight 232-P3D, so many of us Thank You!

Put down or as the hydroboats that run on water and get out of the water and are still on land or parachute is easy and do not continue to destroying the human race that does not want God but there is no death or the cancer compared if there is cure , or cavities there is a solution without eliminating the tooth but do NOT we have to keep the system banned from talking about solutions or expel a camera where passengers are located and a safe distance the plane launches the capsule and fin

    I used to transport flight crews in and out of Logan airport in Boston. I had the honor of driving Cpt Haynes to the Park Plaza hotel for his last layover and to the airport the following morning for he farewell flight. I shook his hand before he boarded the aircraft and took the left seat one last time before retirement. He managed to end his flying career without incident.

    Considering the complexity of commercial aircraft it's almost miraculous there are not more of these terrible accidents. I think we take the people behind the scenes for granted a little too much.

    yes,. he was very emotional that some of his passengers died, but the hard work of Haynes and his crew saved more than half the passengers. I think that, in itself, was a success. That plane should have crashed with total loss of life, well short of Sioux City.

    Time and time again I've watched videos showing EXCEPTIONAL flying skills and this is yet another one. Absolutely outstanding handling of a desperate situation. I find these days that the term "hero" is applied way too liberally. Pilots such as the ones who managed to land this airplane are absolutely deserving of the title "hero".

    The DC-10/MD-11 is definitely NOT one of the most successful aircraft of all time. It was retired from passenger service not long after this accident due to the numerous loss of life accidents and was used for cargo transport after that.
    This accident was the last in a long line of accidents that were caused by design flaws in this aircraft, and primarily responsible for the 'if it ain't Boeing, I'm not going' saying among air passengers.

    • X Pilot
      X Pilot  18 дней назад

      Not sure where you got that information from. the passenger DC-10 was retired in February 2014 with the MD-11 being retired in October 2014. That's around 25 years after this accident occured.
      Boeing bought McDonnell Douglas' assets as well, meaning that McDonnell Douglas merged with and is now Boeing.
      Not sure where you are getting bogus information from.

    Is it coincidence or divine intervention that the airport the airplane crash landed at had recently had a mass disaster training with many of the local EMS and emergency services which contributed greatly is the rescue and recovery of those which survived this horrific crash.

    Would this worked try it in the simulator, if he tilted the nose of the plane up say 60° at about 200 feet and at the same time putting the engines in Reverse to reduce the airspeed then pull the nose back down to 40°. You would have thought he would have landed the plane with the nose up 40° or so with as much left on the elevators as possible if this representation is correct.

    • John sweda
      John sweda 18 дней назад

      Frank Wilson I don't don't think the tile of the plane would hit the ground at 40 degrees that's about take off maybe a bit steep say 30° the slope on the back of the plane is about 45 degrees so should be alright

    • Frank Wilson
      Frank Wilson 18 дней назад

      First of all, how do you get the nose up without flight controls? Second, any attitude above about 20 degrees will cause the tail to impact the ground first, thus slamming the fuselage down. Thirdly, reverse thrust is unavailable in flight due to a 'squat' switch on the landing gear which prevents its operation unless the plane is on the ground.

    If you were unaware of United 232, the title might lead you to think that this was one of those 'against all odds' stories in which all souls survived. 232 is tough, because the expectation that nobody would survive is not, under the circumstances, unreasonable.
    So, while there would have been great relief that so many people survived, 111 fatalities is by no means insignificant.

  • Nx Doyle
    Nx Doyle 21 день назад

    You'd think that with each episode in which I see pilots react with immense composure to life-threatening conditions, the more used to that behaviour I'd become. If anything, the opposite is true. Every time I see something like this, or read a story about similar events and circumstances, I react with slightly more awe.

    Incredibly awesome channel, very educational; though quite heart wrenching at times. I never look up the conclusion of these incidents before watching them -- was almost sure this one was going to be a happy ending, so it was upsetting to learn of the tragic result, though it could have been much worse. I somewhat doubt Fitch and Haynes were in the mood for a beer after all, even though everyone would have died had it not been for their expertise.

    The fact that Denny Fitch was there (not a part of the crew), and that they couldn't have done it without him, makes this an all the more amazing story of bravery, humility and professionalism under extreme pressure. This is what heroism is all about. When the heroes don't understand why they are heroes. Jan Brown and her crew are included in that.

    I used to teach paramedic classes in a community college. One evening, Captain Haynes was speaking to a group at the college, so I took my entire class to hear him speak. Upon entering the building he was at the doorways saying hello to people. He was more than willing to have a group of paramedic students attend since he credited EMS and firefighters with helping that day. His presentation that evening was absolutely amazing. To hear his account in detail and to see the photos he shared made the entire evening worth it. The entire crew were truly professionals, above and beyond the call of duty.

    Seems to me that they should have put more work into the approach, lining the plane up to the runway much further out, and they made way too many correction turns. The other thing I don't understand is why there was no way isolate the hydraulics from the break point, and bypass the rear engine. On board a military style craft, they have triple redundancy in place for such an event.

    Time and again I ask why the engineers who design these damn planes, don't plan for these types occurrences. Why they don't route all the hydraulic lines through different parts of the plane, rather than creating a possible single point of total failure. It's not that big a deal.
    And while we're on the subject, why can't they simply design some kind of engine-grill, that would deflect the majority of a bird-strike - protecting the engines - so we don't have airliners landing on the Hudson River.

    The imagery is a bit confusing: The animation shows the plane almost parallel to the runway as it lands, but the real-world aerial footage shows the plane's skid marks as almost perpendicular to the runway, not matching the animation at all. And the footage of the actual crash shot thru the cyclone fence doesn't clarify things due to the angle at which the videographer capture the crash. (None of this takes away the other facts and heroics as stated below.)

    I had the opportunity to shake Captain Haynes' hand at a ham radio/emergency responder's convention held in tiny Sulphur Springs, TX. Not entirely sure of the year, but it was around 1999 or 2000. He told us the full story. What an honor to be there to hear it. I don't think I have ever met anyone else in my life that I could truly call a hero, but to me he defined the term. I was not going to leave that building before telling him so and shaking his hand.
