Air Astana Flight - Portugal, Control Problems

Air Astana Flight - Portugal, Control Problems

RE: Air Astana Flight - Portugal, Control Problems

That flight path tells a story.

"..an hour and half,.."? Good grief, hats off to the crew.



The problem with sloppy work is that the supply FAR EXCEEDS the demand

RE: Air Astana Flight - Portugal, Control Problems

"Hats off"- Possibly... The news brief and the FlightRadar 24 track tell the story from the outside. What is the story on the inside?
This track could be a plane out of control. It could also be a crew fighting each other for control. Neither pilot would want to admit unprofessional behaviour after they get back on the ground.

We should remember this recent story. Jet Airways was very quick to get the first story out on media about the pilot's "heroic" actions to save the passengers. It took time for the understanding to get out that the pilot had actually been negligent. The fluff story was still being recycled days after the real story came out.

No one believes the theory except the one who developed it. Everyone believes the experiment except the one who ran it.
