CHip on A Christmas Miracle Do I detect a similarity between this and the recent Indonesian crash, in that both involved automated systems overruling the….

There is only so much you can do. Fri, 8 Nov The static ports being covered were, Boeing said, a clear case of careless maintenance followed by a negligent pre-flight inspection by rsport captain.

They had lots of fuel, an attitude indicator that would help them keep things level until they sorted it all out. The wind shear alarm is to warn the flight crew of a sudden change in wind speed or direction, for example a microburst.

The first officer said that their altimeter showed 7, feet and the controller confirmed that was correct: DGTA Peru N52AW 23 Be more demanding and drastic in the penalties against operators with a view to their complying with the established operations and airworthiness procedures.

The captain, who performed the external preflight, failed to see the tape. This is another warning which needs immediate attention and action.

Dye shows how there exist work-arounds – that the aircraft systems provide the lost information, in a degraded form, redundantly. These seals failed at various during the next flight, and all engines at various times lost oil. It is difficult to see how any of the computer systems could be the sole cause of a B crash, except for situation B2 which has never occurred with any airplane computer system.


The angle of the view Airliners accidejt the World Flight International, 6 – 12 December,pp In the Boeingthe stick shaker is triggered by the actual air flow or lack of it, ratherover the wings. This is physical evidence and unaffected by the air data. The Boeing took off from runway 15 just after midnight local time.

I felt they had given a demonstrably mistaken premature attribution of cause, and that this therefore must be refuted, from the armchair if need be. Dye’s suggestion to use the radio altimeter would certainly have avoided the decision leading to the descent into the ocean, which was based on the crew’s and Lima tower’s false indications of an approximately 9, ft altitude from the pressure instruments.

This lack of 60 awareness was revealed by the cockpit voice recorder transcript.

Worse, the ports were only partially blocked. The flight crew followed the vectors from ATC and attempt to set up for a landing with no Flight Director, no auto-pilot and no auto-throttle. Alternative B2 is the only one which allows a computer failure alone to cause an accident: Cross-checking the ASI, VSI and altimeters operating off different circuits will indicate whether a particular circuit is malfunctioning, he says, or if all reporrt affected.

Last modification on by Michael Blume. Is it in fact necessary for this case? Aegean Publishing Company, The altimeter was not changing and the controller repeatedly confirmed their altitude, so they believed that they were flying straight and level.

Fear of Landing – “It must be fictitious!” Aeroperu

Retrieved 29 December Plan seminars, workshops and conferences relating to operational safety, human factors, accident prevention and specific matters such as operational integration through CRM or similar programmes. The crew declared an emergency and requested an immediate return to the airport. Yes it does, in fact.

Both of them believed that they were safely at 9, feet. The stickshaker and overspeed warning were activated, while the captain’s airspeed read more than kt. Neil Higgs on A Christmas Miracle I have said it before and I say it again, there needs to be a big red button which chops….


It can be concluded from these figures that the B is generally an extremely safe aircraft. Of course ATC’s altitude indication comes from the aircraft transponder so it would have to agree. The rudder ratio alarm means that the pilots need to avoid any abrupt rudder inputs. Older aircraft have them retrofitted because the old navigation from beacon to beacon is long obsolete. The covering of either left-side-only or both-side static ports could be sufficient by itself to explain the difficulty the AeroPeru pilot reported with his air data.

The captain pulled up and the GPWS warnings stopped.

Some at least of these ports appear to have been taped over during maintenance and the tape not removed see below. The mach trim warning started to sound, which means that repoet airspeed is too high and the stabiliser has stopped functioning.

Desperate to get the aircraft onto the ground, they descended again, ignoring the Ground Proximity Warning System. Yes, dammit, I started talking about airspeed and then realised that was wrong and changed it without noticing that it still said it was low. In the cockpit, they worked through what seemed to be the relevant checklists while climbing to 12, feet out to sea.

According to Colombian newspaper El Tiempo flight attendant Gema Bruzzone was a survivor of acdident previous aviation accident: Retrieved March 26, Information on the Aeropreu and Other Comments The Boeing entered service with Eastern Airlines in January 4and by 25 September a total of aircraft had been delivered 5.

These alternatives cover, grossly, all the possible scenarios. It can be argued that the crew should have handled the problems better — but I wonder whether this kind of instrument failure is included in any simulation, as it seems unusual. Two were shut down in-flight, and the airplane returned to Miami.
