Gonna need new taxiway signs. Love how he calmly turns around like “and that concludes our lesson for today, kids. Signing off”.
Looks like CGI to me.
Looks like his first action was to destroy the evidence
.... and that's why go around cannot be over emphasized
looked like a sim to me for the most part until the end.
I'm with you... I was thinking, "Wow, this is the most realistic sim I've ever seen"!
Maybe we're all living in a simulation....
I vote that it's real...too strange to be fake. Also that nice flop at the end...
Very realistic was when the plane started veering left, the reflex was to try to “steer” the plane to the right with the yoke. A very common occurrence with students and some less skilled pilots.
Hint: it doesn’t work.
Your insomnia question for the day: If the simulation was all you ever knew, how would you ever know it wasn't real?
Jump in the nearest sailboat and see how far you can get.
...and if I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night!
(Wait, this wasn't the movie-lines thread?)
But he had a shirt like a real pilot he had to be a professional
Yeah, I bet he couldn't hit both signs like that again if he tried.
Man, when you gotta pee.....
He was a passenger on that landing and the pilot was in the FBO. It does appear as he's turning the yoke to try a steer the plane to the right that he pushes the left rudder pedal (it's difficult to see it clearly).
That camera being on and filming his performance must have been heavy on his mind ...
From YT comment, it was a student pilot on solo, somewhere in there there is a NTSB report too
livin' da dre- *WHAM!*
I’m going to have to update my checklists. Silly me, I’ve got Mags off, Master off, fuel shutoff, BEFORE Grab GoPro.
Was that KT? Please tell me that was KT.
I was wondering why I keep seeing visions of red and blue pills
Who the hell signed him off to solo?
It might have gone better had he some epaulettes on that shirt.
I don’t disagree. But I’ve seen some pretty experienced pilots do the same thing when a plane veers left and they panic.
There’s a whole class of accidents from go-arounds that end in a “smoking hole” on the left of the runway. I’ve seen the prelude to that at least once - the plane starts rolling/yawing left and the gut instinct is to “steer” away from the roll/yaw. The only way out is right rudder and pushing the nose down. Neither is natural, and in novel, panic situations instinct can prevail.
The guy that did is probably asking the same question.
Judging by the shirt, probably a CFI who was a solo student 18 months ago himself and flipping burgers 3 months before that.
Coming soon to an Asiana airlines flight near you...
You could see it going wrong even before he touched down. Started drifting left and did not ever correct.
Could have been a blown left tire?
Look at the airspeed, still middle of the white arc over the numbers, way too fast.
I lost a right main on a 172, it was a non event. The only stressful part was when the FAA called afterwards.
Looks like he didn't go to idle until just before touchdown.
holy hell... some people should not be around planes
Or a locked brake? But I'm betting on a student not taking his foot off the left rudder/relaxing right aileron. He was already stepping on the left rudder.
Same thing happened on my field. Asian pilot came in fast and hit the brakes on touchdown slid off the runway took out a few lights and wound up in the grass. The best part we only have two DPE‘s in our area at the time, and I’m standing with one of them on the ramp while we both watched the guy land. I could only imagine what his check ride was like
The return to level at the end was the best part. “That wasn’t so bad” he thinks, then there’s one more jolt to remind him.
Nothing about that landing was right.. it was unstabilized, big control inputs, very fast, and he forgot to fly the plane once he flared and just drove off the runway. I don't think what he did is a "common" student learning curve item..
There's only so much an instructor can do.. not everyone has a talent for sports, musical instrument, singing, dancing, skiing, skating, flying, etc. There are people out there who have yet to solo after 100 hrs and have been through 5 instructors. Not saying this guy is one of them, but not everyone has the right stuff to be a pilot. These foreign exchange type programs are not ideal, and I think it forces a lot of otherwise unqualified (or under qualified) pilots into a career that might not be right for them.. and then they end up flying planes into seawalls on VFR days. There was a poster here a few months back saying he needed more time to learn to land but couldn't get it through his school due to XYZ hrs rules and was basic asking for a "favor" for someone to fly with him and not log it
He failed that too ... but at least this will live somewhere on the internet for eternity awaiting his first job interview
