    watching all of these makes me wonder why the only solution we have for mechanical failure in aircraft is 'try your best to land it'.
    what about a) give everyone a chute and jump
    or b) some sort of air grab with hooking mechanisms and other planes
    saying that I know it sounds pretty dumb, but I'm just surprised we don't have any real contingency plan

    How did the passengers die of impact but not the pilots? Aren't the pilots usually the first to go since they're in the front of the plane?

    I'm not a pilot & I don't know a lot about airplanes but I was just wondering if they might of been able to use the reverse thruster on the left engine to keep it going straight?

    My father was a B-24 pilot WW2, 33 missions over Germany shot down 3 times. He always looked for water in an emergency landing. Once we landed on a freeway under construction in N. Carolina

    Not everyone knows a kid and a paratrooper jumped out of the plane into a cornfield just before it hit the ground. The trooper took the blow but the kid lived! They made him an honorary member of the 82nd airborne. You can actually see them jump on the live footage.

    Wow, Just seeing this now..not even sure how I got to this page but it's remarkable!
    incidentally I have spent almost half a day reading every comment and sub comment (Yes including the trolls and stupid ones SMH)
    Interestingly, for those of you that watch "Air Disasters" (US title) "Air Crash Investigation" (Europe, Aus, etc) and "Mayday" here in Canada, I have worked on several episodes as a background actor, lol. Fed-ex flight 80 (JTSB investigator), Asiana Airlines Flight 214 (Pilot hand double/passenger), Singapore Airlines Flight 368 to name a few. I have played, air traffic controller, passenger, investigator, and mechanic....
    My first real flight was on a 747-400 in mid 90's to Vegas. I remember the flight was fully packed with 518 passengers and crew. We weren't allowed into the flight deck because there were 4 instead of the usual 3 pilots. Coming back though I was allowed in and watched as we flew over Milwaukee at night. I was shocked at how cramped they were in the there for how big the plane is. It's interesting to read, the many first and second hand accounts of friends and family of the pilots, crew, survivors and victims (tragically of course) also the mechanics and people involved in the airline industry. Each little anecdote brings a side of these disasters that one never hears about on the news...thank you all it was a very interesting read :)

    When there is an in-flight emergency, SOP is for the first officer to fly the plane while the captain troubleshoots, just like what happened here.

    After this crash FAA finally forced MD to install fuse plugs in the defective hydraulics.
    Which was the cause of all its crashes,not cargo doors or engine changes.
    And still had no mechanical backups.

    My father was on the air base as a national guard firefighter. He was on runway 22 in a crash rescue truck (his normal truck #5 was out of service at the time. They interviewed him for the TV movie and also met Capt. Haynes. This man and his crew are heroes. I was on scene later to help with duties as a Civil Air Patrol member.

    Nothing is impossible in a computer flight simulator like Microsoft's now "crashed" Flight Simulator.
    Look at the video again, what do you see? You see the aircraft from the outside!!!
    How in the world did that happen?
    Did the captain perhaps have one of these new fangled remote controlled quad copter remote controlled drones with a camera and a powerful battery and a camera which makes it possible to fly as fast as the jet, about 600 miles per hour and take pictures and videos from the outside???
    Or what happened to the pilots in the cockpit when they were being presented on the text on the video. Could you see the captain? Or when the camera panned right, could you see the copilot {first officer) or the navigator behind him? Where we they while being filmed in the cockpit? O, I get it, the aircraft was being controlled by the autopilot while all 3 had filed out to get a cup of coffee or go to the toilet, or perhaps chat with the passengers (it is more likely they were chatting up the female cabin crew.
    NO, WRONG!
    This i just a computer generated video of an virtual aircraft in simulated airspace making an impossible landing possible, possible and not a single virtual hair of passengers or flight crew was lost.
    Carefully analyze what you see, if something looks too fantastic to be possible, it probably is!
    To the maker of this very interesting video, please tell your audience right from the start that this is

    Michael Matz survived this flight with his fiance D.D. Alexander, and went on to win a silver medal in the Olympics in show jumping. He then moved to TB race horses, training the great Barbaro, who sadly passed. I grew up 3 miles from him, spent my entire life as a horse trainer in another discipline, and regrettably never met the man. What a hell of a thing to go through. Who knows how life will turn out, and how luck plays a part in all of us. One hell of a lot of good horse men and women came out of little Berks County, Pa.

    to have all the hydraulics powered from one engine and if one pipe leaks you loose everything and no back-up of any kind just don't seem right to me,can just a broken pipe cause this to happen again, a second back-up system not so complicated just giving some control would surely made a big difference,,,,I like to hear what others think.,,this was not a undetected crack when it was being made as at least two others were found with the same problem,I don't get that bit either

    My thought was that, if a computer had been controlling the landing, it could have made instant, tiny adjustments to the approach, which would have resulted in a better landing than any human pilot would have been able to do.

    Yet again, the utter futility of pilots wasting time talking to ground maintenance. Instead of focusing all their energies on getting the bloody thing down and on the ground as soon as possible, solutions to dynamic, complex and most likely intractable problems are sought from people who are completely and utterly incapable of suppling anything more than bland pathos.
    Additionally, you're flying over just about as perfect an emergency landing terrain as it's possible to imagine - bloody Iowa. Flat as pancake, with 90% of the land given over to industrial-sized, commercial farms, and almost no people. Forget about saving the plane, it's toast. Get it down in a corn field. By 'landing' at SC they merely ensured they'd hit concrete, as opposed to earth and lots of momentum stopping vegetation. In a catastrophic situation like this, real thinking out of the box is required, but almost never delivered. Instead commercial pilots - trained to view anything but runway, as akin to enemy territory are blind to the bleeding obvious.

    The DC-10 is the biggest pile of crap ever made for commercial use. They have killed over 1300 people. My best friend designed the repair for the bad cargo doors. He showed me blue-prints for the entire jet...and it is a piece of shit. That is why they have finally been grounded and not because they were built since 1970. The 747 is also the same age and are being built at a record rate. Nope...this jet is a jinxed piece of crap & hell is waiting for its designers. No jet has killed more people than the DC-10. This jet has had 55 accidents that have claimed the lives of so many innocent people. This is what happens when idiots are allowed to build aircraft. Boeing has always made the greatest planes. I refuse to fly in anything else. You morons at McDonnell Douglass need a lesson for what you have done. You even knew the jet was crap.

    So we've identified two problems, 1)GE manufacturing defect; 2)Maintenance inspection personnel, but there's an oft overlooked third: these planes are kept in service too long. Most other forms of transportation are never used as long and flying has its own more dangerous risks...things should be retired earlier.

    The day that Flight 232 went into the air, the airline had declared to be "Children's Day." Children could fly for a reduced or no fare if they were accompanied by an adult. There was a greater number of children on board due to the special rate. The Airlines standard instruction for 'lap infants' is to place them on the floor during an emergency landing. Several were lost during that horrific landing. I am so sad for them and their parents.
