    I know you probably get comments like this all the time, but I’m completely addicted to these videos despite not being an aviator myself. My parents are/were in the industry (ATC and instructor) but taught me a lot more about meteorology (even did some storm chases with my dad). I’ve always enjoyed flying and having the parents I do made me very unafraid of flying, but now I feel like I can actually nerd out a little with them.

    As Indonesian, watching this accident breakdown feels like getting hard punch in the face. This accident shows how our regulators and airline itself really messed up on maintenance and pilot training (or lack of) that led up to this disaster. I hope that they really learn from this disaster to actually improve AND implement recommendations from final report.

      ​​@George Dyson I understood what you said and have the same thought. But then, the answer of the puzzle ends in... sadly..., very simple but cold reality: Complacency 😱.
      And luck (or out of it) as well. What the pilot saw first wasn't the true effect of the banking, but the result of compensating one. So his effort of correcting was actually what making it even worse. Maybe it's like instinctively trying to correct left spin stall by steering the yoke to the right, or trying to stop skidding car by braking it even harder.

      This is what puzzled me. I would have thought that pilots would constantly check what the settings of the controls were in the plane. Looking at the instrument panel, checking thrust lever positions, stick etc just to be sure the autopilot was operating as expected. There seem to be so many ways that the autopilot can try to compensate for switch settings, weather and malfunctions that it should never be left unsupervised. I struggle to believe that the different thrust settings could have been missed.

    I worked on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner as an IBM software architect on their Boeing Electronic Distribution of Software (BEDS) system, and I have appreciation of how much more complex it is to fly any plane. A modern plane has so many systems and modes that it is absolutely mind boggling.

    When I first began driving school as a teenager, my instructor said something very important: in an emergency we often revert to the habits we learned first, so it is very important to learn the right behaviors first. That advice has saved my life more than once. For professional aviators, I imagine that making sure to bypass certain instincts, looking at the instrument panel, and avoiding confirmation bias are probably some of the important life-saving habits. The 1500 milliseconds it takes to ask “what is really going on” to break the spell could make all the difference.

    It's sad when these accidents occur because of a persistent mechanical issue that is never properly diagnosed and fixed. In my opinion every system in a passenger aircraft should be considered critical, especially those that directly impact the flight characteristics of the aircraft. It's not like when the "Check Engine" light comes on in your car.

    As a pilot who flies his bonanza, these accidents constantly remind me the importance of checklists and actually verifying the item on the checklist. It's easy to say for instance on take off that, "engines in the green" with a quick glance, but looking back how often have I actually verified that vs just called it out as a memory item. I have made it a focus on my flying lately to get much better at checking items off and not just going through the motions. I'm also doing more flights with a CFI even though I don't need any additional training per the regulations, just so I can practice emergency procedures more. The more comfortable I am hand flying the plane the better I am at addressing emergencies.

    I’m from Indonesia and I’ve been watching many of your videos recently. I would have to say that your videos are almost like tutorials which dissect each of those unfortunate accidents in many fine details and in many dimensions. This I think, is almost unfound in many other similar documentation videos. Regarding Indonesian aviation, to be honest as not so frequent domestic air traveller I’m still concern about the level of details and enforcement our authority has implemented to avoid this type of disaster in the future. This is unfortunately common mentality still persisting in our bureaucracy which is always late and wait for a disaster to happen before waking up.. but sometimes, only to sleep again😂 My hope is that our pilots and all of those important peoples in our aviation industry can watch and tuned in into your channel to at least expand their knowledge and perspective to make our sky safer

    24:52 A well trained pilot would not have looked at the controls but at the instruments on hearing the “bank angle” caution. I’m flabbergasted that any pilot would be in cloud, during a climb and not be aware of the attitude indicator. Further to this, keeping hands and feet lightly on the controls, even with the autopilot in, is prudent and would have highlighted the thrust asymmetry as it occurred. Another great video Petter!

    I appreciate the fact the you highlighted the effects of human factors in this unfortunate accident. If I may add, they might not be focused on their ADIs and the EWD especially the Captain for they might be fixated in their weather radar. Flying during monsoon season near the tropics sometimes require aviators just to avoid the "worst of it" and a lot of times we have to avoid multiple cells near each other. And most likely in this kind of weather other than you are in IMC you'll probably be having nasty turbulence as well and these things can affect your situational awareness as well. As a colleague in this industry, I would like to thank you for taking a different route on explaining to non aviators these tragedies and on always putting the "human aspect" to everything.

      @Mentour Pilot Its definitely working, I’ve taken similar lessons from your videos myself. There are some curious similarities between our jobs in terms of importance of following safety SOPs even if it’s a little little slower or annoying than cutting those tiny corners. No doubt you’ll understand why when I tell you I’m an ACS agent cross trained in most of the ramp duties. (I’m not entirely compatible with spending time doing nothing waiting for another aircraft to clean and provide bowser service so I voluntarily undertook most of the ramp training so I can go out and assist them. If I’m working the shift passes faster.) Similarly the lessons in situational awareness transfer into my job and supplement the training already provided by my employer.
      You might be pleased to know that teaching me about how the mind works when startled and surprised have actually had practical applications during the nine months or so that I’ve worked on the apron, particularly right after a very near miss when the driver of our van somehow missed the incoming Ryanair 737 following the yellow line to taxi to the assigned aircraft stand. It was already beginning to turn to cross our path when we approached. I was seated behind the driver and we skimmed by so close that I could have reached out the window and patted the 737 on the nose. Once past the 737 I had to be firm in insisting the driver pull over at the nearest safe spot because the startle and surprise would make him far more likely to actually cause an accident if he continued to drive back to base.
      Besides it was inevitable that Airside Ops would come for him quickly so there really wasn’t any point to carry on driving and the easiest thing to do was just wait for them to arrive. Admittedly I’ve always wondered what went through the pilots minds during this incident. From my rudimentary understanding I doubt that there was anything they could do to stop quick enough. They were taxiing and apparently it can take a few seconds for the engines to spool down if they killed the engines or put them into idle and I have no idea if the parking brake is capable of stopping the aircraft while it’s taxiing. I still don’t know how he missed it, planes like that are not subtle.
      Similarly it’s helpful to simply be aware that prolonged stress and fatigue can affect the mind while I’m under those conditions out there. Having learned about CRM was the other main takeaway and sometimes I think it might be worth learning more specifics would be useful when our supervisor expects us to do something dumb like attempt to clean a 737 without a GPU yet available in the middle of a night shift. Fortunately that doesn’t happen often and most of the time I enjoy the job despite some of the downsides.
      Oh and if you ever fly into BRS and I’m around I’ll say hi.

    Hello Peter, I really enjoy your breakdowns of accidents and near accidents. It makes them very understandable. I have about 15 hours in C-172 over 30 years ago, so I have enough real personal flight experience to be dangerous and not helpful. One thing I thought about watching the above video, has there been any discussion that you know of regarding changing the “Bank Angle” audible alert to include the direction? Something like “Bank Angle Left” in this case. We will never know if an alert like that would have triggered this captain to better recognize this event, but it seems to me it might have triggered his hyper focus on the yoke to recognized the incongruence between the yoke position and the alert for the “Bank Angle Left”. Perhaps he might have taken the moment longer to find his artificial horizon?
    I am a Paramedic by training and I am also very aware of alarm overload and fatigue in some situations. Adding extra detail to the audible alert may not be preferred for other very good reasons. Thanks for your time.

    I love these videos! I'm in mechanical engineering and we come across many troubleshooting experiences similar to the venn diagram you showed, though not with such dramatic consequences. Just the other day we had replaced the transmission in a piece of machinery and the new transmission made grinding noises at every shift. we drained the oil, send a sample for analysis.. asked the manufacturer for oil fill procedures, checked and double checked again and again and still, in every test drive, that grinding noise came back.
    We put the machine on jackstands and ran some tests in the shop with one mechanic driving the machine with it's wheels off the ground and the other one sitting next to the open hood looking at what was going on in there. It turned out to be the powertrain assembly not being properly lined up on the engine mounts and the cooling fan being too close to the radiator shroud. At every gear change, the motor would jolt slightly and the fan blades were grinding against the shroud. All that time, the logic seemed to be that an issue fixed with the transmission must mean the this problem also came from the transmission! In any situation, never assume that what you think is happening is really what is happening!!

    These videos are absolutely the best, and presented in a non-accusatory fashion which is great. One observation that I seem to note after watching a lot of these videos is that there seems to be a remarkable (and to me unusual) tendency of some of the accident pilots to utterly ignore their AI and TC in abrupt upset situations. I am just a PPL rating, so have never been in the heavy iron situation, but during IFR training, the need to trust these and not your kinetic senses is hammered home. Seems that neither pilot did this, or maybe the FO was intimidated by the Captain and did not want to correct his actions. I wonder why? Sad in any case.

    When you mentioned that the Captain hadn't looked down at his instruments for 20 seconds, hey, 20 seconds is a LONG time. A 5-to-10-second 6.0 earthquake feels like 10 minutes!
    I love you mentioning 'confirmation bias' and the 'startle effect', and the psychological effect of this intense stimuli event and the reflex action of the person.

    It's not the first accident that happens because an autopilot silently compensates for an unusual situation. The situation gets worse and worse, until a puzzling warning occurs or the autopilot disconnects itself entirely.
    Do you think some kind of earlier warning could be implemented into the autopilot? Something like "I am still managing what you told me to do, but this is getting increasingly difficult and I will shut down in X seconds". I think this could help this and other similar situations.

      @Torten Schachtel No, but bad habits may cause airline or pilots to use asymmetric thrust as indigenous, temporary cure to not immediately cure-able problems arose inflight (e.g. ungoverned rolling/veering to one side, bad rudder response etc), more so if they are crossing ocean and lands are far from accessible.

      @gloowacz I like your idea but I don’t think telling them how much the percentage is being useful. Rather, a “Attention, Thrust Asymmetry, left/right side, too low/high” would be sufficient, since the pilots should know the difference and which engine is the culprit when they look at the gauge and levers.

      It was obvious plane was turning opposite direction despite all the effort of the AP, they could put a waring sound indicating plane is not turning as AP commanding. And implementing it would be easy, just write a simple piece of code which will measure the difference between control roll and actual roll indicated by the instrument.

      @LiliumAtratum Indeed, exactly. That is what Petter mentioned at the end of his Video: In this special case an Airbus Sidestick would have been the better feature because he wouldn´t have distracted the pilot from looking at his instruments to understand what really was going on.
      A warning that a Throttle Split occured would have been indeed very useful in this case. It would have prevented the startle effect and therefore the panic reaction.

      I was thinking the same thing. The main reason for the pilot's surprised reaction was that they did not get any prior warning that something was wrong. All the while, the auto-pilot could already have known what was wrong. If the auto-pilot would have warned that the auto-throttle was not reacting as expected, there would not have been any accident.

    Those pilots’ failure to report, it isn’t overly harsh to say, are also majorly to blame for this tragedy. And, yes, I’m aware the captain was one of the two pilots in the fatal flight.

      Agreed. I have the impression that the reporting and logging failures were systemic in the airline culture (and possibly an indirect consequence of face-saving culture that is often seen in some parts of east Asia. Repeatedly "cleaning" connections most likely just gave time out somewhere else for the fault to go away temporarily. This is down to basic electrical / electronic fault finding skills. The failure to recognise that after 10 to 20 "fixes" the problem is still there and it really has some other cause is just shocking.

    One of the things that alot of these stories shows me is that it's so easy to get into the habit of working around small problems and things which you can do to get the job done when there's not extra stress but when there is extra stress it's impossible to complete. The fact that there was no reporting of the asymetric thrust even when they overshot their altitude is really bad, similarly the failure of the regulator to either regulate for its internationally agreed upset prevention or even be aware that it wasn't being done makes you wonder how much else they missed... So many accidents could be avoided by people looking at the ADI and believing it with no external references, sensory disorientation is so easy to happen, it's scary how quickly the situation went from relatively easily recoverable to destruction, as you say understanding your aircrafts systems and interacting with them properly is vital.

      "If just one detail is missed, one step taken incorrectly, it's done for everyone."
      But it wasn't just one detail missed. It was the lack of proper maintenance, which ended in two systems failing (the autothrottle system and the CTS-system), that was combined with the pilots not monitoring their systems which led to being surprised and out of surprise reacting the wrong way (partly because of wrong training). I'd argue that this wasn't just one missed detail, but a lot of them on different levels, that had to come together.

    The chairman of Canada's nuclear industry regulatory agency used to joke that he wished that the reactor operator chair could be equipped with automatic clamps. These clamps would automatically lock down the operator's arms for 5 seconds whenever a high level alarm came in. This would force the operator to first study the instrument panel and gain situational awareness, before releasing him to take action. He was joking when he said it, but he was also highlighting the risk of an operator taking action before they've read their instruments and formed a clear picture of the problem, and the required corrective action.

    As an engineer, I am quite surprised that the auto systems didn't alert to when they are unable to perform their functions.
    Seems like it would be very useful for the autothrottle system to alert to an unexpected throttle position (say to due to a stuck throttle), regardless of asymmetric thrust.
    Likewise for the autopilot to alert to it hitting the limit of it's control range. Given human weakness at monitoring stuff, would have been better for an alert that something was wrong to come well before the bank angle alert.

    When you said what would you do for a bank angle warning and I immediately thought control stick/yoke must turn left or opposite to what it is, to correct for the bank angle warning . ONLY to realize when we look at the bigger picture, that this action will only exacerbate the problem.
    My instructor tells me all the time I react too quickly without assessing the situation ( or picture ) first sometimes which leads to over correcting or making too much work for myself trying to get stable .
    I think from watching this video and trying to apply good habits/lessons , I need to actively try asses and understand the situation before my input into the aircraft.

    Another great, professional production! You should be commended for how you defend the pilots' actions by putting the situation in human terms. There was another extremely important aspect that you didn't touch on: the aircraft was in a significant skid, causing a lateral force on them, and initially right bank. This would have caused major spatial disorientation when they looked back at their instruments because their balance organs (otolith organs) would have been telling their brains one thing and their eyeballs telling them something very different. This disorientation is very difficult to overcome quickly, especially when compounded by the shock and surprise you pointed out. That said, why in the world weren't they looking at their instruments when they were in Instrument Flight Rule conditions?!

      @Mikoto It was a nearly 27 years old 737 Classic - so a really aged plane from a traditional Design. So, yes, maybe it would have been a better choice to make spare parts and coke shelter out of this aircraft.

      @No More That was actually one of the conclusions I reached when considering what the root cause was. That it pretty much had to be a quirk or flawed component of that individual aircraft so deeply embedded that it could potentially been just built into the airframe during construction or during one of the early repairs.
      Indeed the thought floated across my mind that with such a deep set problem so difficult to find and fix that maybe the airline would have been better off scrapping it for spare parts but immediately knew that the aircraft was simply too expensive for that.

    After watching all these videos, I might be biased myself by my addiction to the airbus philosophy of how to use and integrate technology and especially automation, but it would be interesting to have an overview or comparison of the effect of the control design on this kind of accidents. My feeling is, that the "classic" control design used by boeing more often makes it harder for the pilots to keep correct situational awareness whenever something like that struck lever occurs. I personally can't understand that an automatic system that should move two levers synchronously doesn't stop way before the situation gets that much asymmetric. As a technician I would expect a margin of max 5-10%, but here it seems that nearly 80% difference occurred before the system
    recognized an irregular condition. For me from my (non aviation) point that seems to be a hard design flaw that should have been eliminated years before, due that there happened more accidents based on that strange system behavior.

      In this case it was clearly a secondary technical fault of the Aircraft, as Petter mentioned in the Video.

    Easy to see how this happened. Just thinking about the not paying attention thing, I nearly wrecked my car a week ago because of it. Combination of factors, including the time it takes the mind to process what’s going on. By the time I realized how slow the car that pulled in front of me was going I didn’t have time to brake, so I braked and swerved. What I didn’t notice was someone had just lane changed to be next to me. If I hadn’t happened to look mid swerve, I would have hit them for sure. It’s easy to become complacent doing these daily tasks, like driving (or in this case flying) and not pay as much attention as we should because things most of the time go right. But that leaves us unprepared for when things go wrong. These air accidents are great to learn from, because often when the human factor is involved, the lesson can be applied to other areas of life and not just aviation. Stay defensive, pay attention!

I hope that flight schools, pilot trainers, and others are using your videos as training tools to show new pilots what can go wrong and how it was dealt with before. You don't just focus on crashes, but also those cases when things have gone severely wrong and the crew has saved the situation, which is just as important a lesson as the ones that fail.
    One way it could be used training wise is to run the pilot through a simulator of the accident, then watch your video, then back into the simulator to see if they can improve.

    I am an aircraft mechanic and when we “clean/reset connectors” it’s our way of doing *something* to clear a write up when we can’t duplicate a discrepancy on the ground or don’t feel like digging any deeper. It’s sad but it’s the reality. Pilots, if you ever see this sort of corrective action for a write up, it’s probably not really fixed and will probably come back.

      @Daniel Cooke On the jet I worked on, we have a device called the DDTU, which is a digital data transfer unit. We have a requirement to check it after EACH flight and record and work any major faults listed on there. The DDTU is basically the same thing as the device on this 737.

      Read through all these responses, take your view on who is realistic, consider who is commercially viable. Which responder has the luxury of unlimited time. Who is trying to do a good job and who just likes arguing. Imagine being a pilot and attempting to describe some of a problem to these argumentative pendants... would you try a second time? Imagine this lot are your maintenance crew; who would you give the tricky problem to? Mr Black and White, or the realists. The man most interested in avoiding prosecution so a box ticker, or Mr Teflon who wont help but always judges. Its little wonder problems escape detection let alone rectification. To the original mechanic Jochen saying watch out; more power to you. At least hes recognising humanity and is telling the truth. Perhaps the one bit not mentioned is this; it depends on who reports a fault. Some people report every squeak, but get very angry if a lowly mechanic tells them they are wrong. The senior man who rose through the ranks on merit and still remembers the daily challenges of the lower ranks is a very rare man. Normally you just get screamed at to fix it already.... I suspect Mentour Peter would make a very good supervisor in maintenance as he understands how expensive mistakes are. But he would only be promoted in an affluent company.

      @Michael Frey I'd say that a mechanic shouldn't look at what time the plane is scheduled to take off. I know that they do, and are maybe more or less forced to do so by their supervisors, but the safety of the plane should be top priority. My brother is a mechanic and he says that he doesn't let them force him to release a plane if he doesn't think it is safe to fly. In the end it's your signature on the form and if it all goes tits up, you have to answer the difficult questions. Also, you have to live with it...
      I wouldn't do it. Now I don't work in the industry (I'm in IT) but I did refuse to do things that are similar to signing off on something that isn't right. I don't care if they'd fire me for such a reason. At least I have a clear conscience. Maybe they should show this series to people in airline management, because there are more accidents that are maybe not 100% to blame on management pushing for a bad decission, but their attitude did contribute to the accident. Usually there are multiple reasons for a disaster (the Swiss cheese is a brilliant analogy) and obviously a pilot/captain shouldn't let himself be pushed to make a wrong decission. But in the end, we're all humans, and we make mistakes.

      I was an airplane mechanic for only 2 years, but I experienced many interesting things during that time.
      Competence and maintenance deficiencies.
      For example, I found scissors in the vertical control plane. (actually it was forgotten after maintenance)
      It would have really caused a lot of trouble if he moved. (I noticed it when changing the film of the black box)
      The "black box" was of course yellow!
      Even I made a mistake:
      I was dealing with military aircraft and a red alert occurred during the exchange of standby aircraft.
      I had already shut off the oxygen system, but I was not able to depressurize it yet, so nothing indicated this to the pilot.
      The shift was interrupted due to the red alert.
      Due to a red alert, the machine had to be started (this is also my task) and only approx. After 1 minute, I realized that I had already closed the machine's oxygen system.
      I quickly got out of the starter car, and quickly opened the 2 oxygen valves.
      Fortunately, there was no deployment.
      If the pilot had had an accident because of this, I don't know how I would have taken it!
      Back to flying:
      Artificial horizon!!!
      THIS is the most important thing
      I would have looked at that right away!
      If that's okay, there's time for something else...

    Was the issue of the Auto-Throttle ever found out? Why was it happening, not as an educated guess, but with a precision of
    reasonable cause. - I have had similar failures, while being the Component Reliability Engineer for several leading electronics
    corporations, including but not limited to aerospace industry. - What it really shocked me about your video on on the JS 182
    was your comment which stated that the computer box or the controller box for the Auto-throttle, can most of the time be fixed with a good clean up of the connections.- Peter, I may be long in explaining it, but that is a real no-no - which leads or aggravates the condition of intermittent circuitry on most electronics controlled by connectors which are wired.
    Like one of your collegues here in youtube would say: Let me explane: There are at least 4 factors working against this flight or any other flight since the jet was a 27 year old, with shoddy maintenance records during apparently 1/3 of its lifespan.
    I will exhibit in here, the principal of connections in a computerized system. - Just like an aircraft or any craft for that matter,
    a connector does have a limit as to the healthy number of connections it can perform. - A connector durability or life span is
    not measure in month or years, but rather in the number of cycles it can handle.- Lets say for example, a connector type for
    a database bank, ( and this is for an example reference in general only) with an RJ45 connector. - the connector in the cable
    is the male end, and the connector on the bulkhead or flange is the female receptacle.- in most of the times, this type of connection is considered"...semi-permanent..." -meaning that it will be kept connected during operation, with only completing a
    cycle or two during maintenance. So, when the maker of the controller orders the connectors, via their specification drawing
    orders a number of connector sets, for semi-permanent operation. There are versions of the same connector, usually for
    permanent, semi permanent, minimum cycle, medium cycle, maximum cycles, for commercial, industrial, and for aerospace.
    The base unit of the connector is the same. What it changes is the plating which covers the bare material, and allows for a
    uniform distribution of the electrical signal going throughout the cable into its pertinent destinatary inside the receptacle
    with each pin then routing the signal for every position in the connector. - Then, What is the difference between each different grade of the same connector? The answer is the thickness of the plating on each pin of both ends of the connection, so much in the male as within the female end. - For example, for a semi-permanent operation, the gold plating of each pin does required ( for commercial application operating between 0 degrees C - 70 degrees C ) is 15 uin [ micro inches ] for one step up
    in effective performance, you have a typical of 30 uin, for industrial typical use is 50 uin; / 75 uin, and for aerospace the minimum is typically 100 uin -{ uin = micro inches } - so, the first 15 uin may last 500 cycles of insertion / extraction.
    the 30 uin, goes up 1500 cycles. - The thicker the plating, whether gold or other elegant metal for uniform transmissivity,
    the more reliable the connector and cable combo. And since a cable / connector combo only achieve success when there
    are a functional item. - One of the typical problems with the industry is that entire outfits who manufacture either connectors and or wire harness or cables, change hands from time to time, thus change methodologies and product lines.
    Sometimes, that enables a delay delivery of the proper item, and then the purchaser is forced to use a substitute. While a substitute is always meant for temporary use, most of the time, becomes a permanent fixture of the assembly since it is
    found to be "working properly" - however, the subs, are in most instances provided with lower thickness of plating on each connector pin. - Which leads to a general condition known as "dissimilar metal contact" - Here is the kicker:
    Dissimilar metal contacts, when come into play together into a cycle of insertion/ extraction, wears out far faster than similar metal contacts. with the contact having a thicker plating eroding the metal having a thinner plating contact.
    The end result, is what is called in the electronic connector industry as "...gouging..." which in plain English means gashes or
    interruptions on the plating exhibiting the bare metal of the contact. - This in turn, along with movement and vibration, causes
    small interruptions in a given pin making contact with a socket. These interruptions, are very temporary and short lived.- Yet are unpredictable as to when the pins of the connection are going to create a short or open, it is like there are dancing to the compass of the vibrations and sudden moves, while changing their position accordingly due to external forces. -
    This "...intermittency..." is what leads to people to do not report the problem. - because is a symptom of an unpredictable behavior - and most are afraid of reporting what could end resulting on nothing at all. - Yet the this type of box for the A/T
    it is usually checked, while the aircraft is parked in a hangar, without the load of engine nor the vibration of the wind. Thus
    is like maintenance never gets to see the fault in actual action.
    Furthermore, to clean a gouged surface on a pin connector is contaminating and corroding the rest of the plating residing on
    the gouged pin just cleaned up. So, it may work for a little while, however as soon as it the solvent cleaning dries up, it goes back to dance to the rhythm of the forces of gravity and vibrations.- The other thing is it may begin to send really unwanted signals, to the computer, which could potentially become uncontrollable.
    Like sometimes, your little Chinese headphones (3.5mm) you plug into your laptop, may experience a conductor breakage on the tail of the strain relief, causing a video to jump to a different location in time on the video, or losing audio.
    same effect, - I had to solve problems like this when ATARI was the name of the game in video games. - It took 98,853 turns
    of a joystick to show the actual visible catastrophic damage, on a bare eye look. - However, when this type of failures do take place, begins, far before the evident failure. These type of failures are called "...latent...." failures.- I did also an evaluation for
    LSI Logic, with their then called "VIDEO DAC" and actually put a couple of semi conductors to pay us via lawsuit.
    Just the same as if a fin of a turbine engine would have an internal inherent crack to its own manufacturing processes.
    We do now what the potential risk for that is.- This minute items, under constant pressure and heat of the transmissivity of the signal though a wire or connector, or from within a tiny bubble of trapped air, could bring an aircraft down.
    There are a lot of situations, in which the connectors must be changed over every so often. - Yet, with technology changing so rapidly, unfortunately it also does change the manufacturing focus of connector manufacturers. I am a witness to that, and even though you can customize with adapters, the problem is that by adding up equipment, you are also changing the operational characteristics of the actual connection. For one, you increase resistance, thus increase the internal temperature of the connection, thus degrade the signal transmissivity, since heat and temperarture are the worst enemies of any electronic element. - with also changing or delaying the speed of the connection signal, which may need to be acquired within a specific
    window of time in order to respond in a proper and timely manner. - and on a repeatitive motion this couild accumulated in a dangerous way, to the point that the system may not be able to interprete the signal, may get what we called in the failure world "...stuck at fault...." and freeze or even worse, shut down completely.
    the crew of SJ 182, had been distracted by a case for which no pilot had been trained for. And that is the reliability of system connections. - Believe me when I tell you, that things had change quite a bit in electronics world in the last 28 years.
    I 've had my degree on Reliability and Maintainability Engineering in 1982 - With a practical test performed under the then
    American Society for Qualilty Control, at Lockheed Ames Research Facility in California.- A whole day exam.
    I was previous to the last to leave the exam room.
    The aerospace experience, had it at Loral Aerospace, - with some little bullets flying over the ocean.
    I told them "no you can not program EPROMS without protection and having make fly to target.
    They've asked me why : My reply was because you get UV at high altitude. - Some of the programmers walked off the room.
    The system to make these EPROMs containing target data, re-programmable, was, that it was erasable. -
    How you erase them? via exposing them in close little box to U.V. rays for about 2 minutes.-
    EPROM = eraseble programmable Read Only Memory ( a dinosaur by now ).
    I hope you can appreciate my point of view.

      No, the original Reason for the Failure of the Throttle´s was never detected, as Petter said in the Video and as the Final Report stated. The FDR didn´t cover it and the Throttle System itself was too destroyed after the Crash to get any information out of it. The Investigators stated only in their Final Report, as Petter mentioned, that it is likely that some mechanical issue occured inside of the system, which was never searched and therefore never found by the Maintenance Crew.

      Hah, that’s similar to my experience with the introductory training to working safely on the apron and aircraft stands. When the training video featured past incidents to teach us not to do the same or similar things I felt a sinking feeling when I realised I’d already learned it from this channel and knew what was about to happen, particularly during my ramp training about the importance of loading and labelling cargo properly and what things are hazardous such as lithium batteries. I recognised UPS flight 6 immediately and I still feel sympathy for that poor first officer and what he endured alone for the final minutes of his life. But yeah much of the things I’ve learnt from this channel built the foundation of my understanding of aircraft which I’ve since built on.
      😆 You know that the lessons have truly sunk in when he apologised for being technical at the start of this video and the responding thought was “this is technical?” Before the thought scatters while following the narrative.

    Thank you for your channel. Clear, informative and focused. It is clear that any automated or regulated system is ultimately dependent on human input, and human input is wildly unpredictable, due to multiple influences, including culture, money and health. In the interest of passenger safety, there should be much tighter - voluntary - regulation and auditing of airline operations, as a pre-condition for international operations. As we now discover that no one regulator is immune from serious deficiencies (Boeing/FAA certification fiasco), this should include frequent (quarterly) neutral inter-agency audits. Those who meet all requirements will have the least burden from such audits. It will require a lot of auditors, but I suspect they will save much more than their number in unnecessary aviation deaths. Accidents and incidents will not be eliminated (perfection is impossible), but greatly reduced amongst voluntary participants. Unwilling operators would be reduced to national (domestic) flights/activities, or in the case of agreements between unwilling participant countries, international flights between known non-participants. Direct bottom-line (financial result) pressure is the only pressure understood by most commercial operations, and professionals such as you will find your good influence and intent totally eliminated by poor (unconscionable) high-level management decisions and controls.

When you consider what could possibly fail in a modern jet, attitude indicator is maybe the most reliable data input you can have.

    One question I have. On dual engined planes (and maybe even 4 engined) when is there ever a requirement to run one engine at a higher thrust than the other during normal operation?

    Petter, I really love these videos. Obviously, these are tragic events, but I'm convinced everybody could learn from this, not just airline employees. Safety culture is something that's not universally shared among people. But I must say that I was a bit shocked to see that an experienced pilot was sort of panicking and taking the wrong action. You'd think that experienced pilots would take a deep breath and at least scan the instruments before doing something wrong. In my mind it would just take a second or two to see what was going on and at that moment it would be relatively easy to correct. Just like with the other flight that experienced the same problem. In the end you never know how you react in a sudden emergency situation untill it happens. I myself had a few scary situations in a car and on the motorcycle where I was happy to find out that I didn't panic and hit the brakes immediately and/or turn the steering wheel, like many people do in a panic reaction. But like you indicated, these pilots had just one session with the upset scenario. I was thinking that in flight school with simulators, they'd train more with sudden emergency scenarios so that you learn to remain calm and not panic and make the situation worse.
    So, keep 'm coming, your videos are really the best in this category. Your no-nonsense, no sensationalism, no stretching for time and trying to build up the suspense like Air Crash Investigation, is highly appreciated. Just the facts and great background information so that we really understand how it all works. Discovery should hire you to do that show 😂
