I wonder in this example why did the Electra stall and spin?
From my very first lessons it was drilled into my head by all my
instructors "WHEN THE ENGINE FAILS GET THE NOSE DOWN AND FLY THE
AIRPLANE!" I wonder why the Electra didn't remain in a

(somewhat)
straight & level attitude? Was the crew too busy, confused,

alarmed,
to fly/glide the airplane?

ISTR from reading Air Disasters by Macarthur Jobs, that the

Electra
crashed because the birds took out both engines on one side and

the
asymmetric thrust of the remaining engines could not be corrected

by
the available rudder authority. I may be wrong. It was a long

time
ago that I read about it.

Plus the fact that it happened right after takeoff when it was

just
above stall speed.


It wouldn't have been just above stal speed, it would have been just
above V2 whihc would have been at least VSO 1.2

http://aviation-safety.net/database/...?id=19601004-0

A few seconds after taking off from runway 05, the Electra struck

a
flock of starlings. A number of these birds were ingested in

engine
no.1, 2 and 4. Engine no. 1 was shut down and the prop feathered.
Shortly after that the no. 2 and 4 engines experienced a

substantial
momentary loss of power. This caused the plane to yaw to the left

and
decelerate to stall speed. The left wing then dropped, the nose
pitched up and the L-188 rolled left into a spin and fell almost
vertically into the water.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The unique and critical sequence of the loss and
recovery of engine power following bird ingestion, resulting in

loss
of airspeed and control during takeoff. "


Loss of airspeed due to the loss of three engines. The HP woudl have
been attempting to maintain altitude with a speed trade and no

thrust
to
spare. He would have entually hit VMC and rolled doing this. Just

like
Concorde..

No one can fault Scully. He has exactly the same number of take offs
and landings. That he swam away from his last with no loss

passengers
and crew is a good thing.



At the end of the day, tha's all that counts. There are those who

would
try and tamper with success, though. Evel fjukkers.
We have an obscene name for them, so if any reader is of a timid
disposition, they had best look away now. We call them..

Management pilots.


We have those too on the railroad.

They are generally called Accountants.


At least they don;'t pretend to be engineers!

Ok ok...totally *genius* idea: dirigibles.

Excellent. I'll sign on for a course.


Yeah, think on that for a while.

Its either that or the locomotive, chaps.

Only if it's a real one. i.e. Steam

No! Hell no!

And what pray tell is wrong with steam?

Steam locomotives? Everything.

Well man spit it out! Lets not play guessing games here!

Have you ever been on a working steam locomotive?

They are very dirty (producing soot and ash. Very noisy. (usually
about 90-105 dB. They get louder under full power)


Excelelnt.


The engines I road we have the full ear muff/sound reduction. The
SP4449 and the both of the UP steam engines. I also road in an steam
engine at the of 5... But that hardly counts. (my dad was steam and
diesel locomotive engineer) The others were as a adult.

Most all locomotive engineers from the steam era were deaf. and
suffered breathing problems.


Pretty much the same as pilts, then.


Yep, but I think the fumes and hearing damage might be higher in the
railroad business. The length of daily exposure before 1973 was 16
hours/day/7 days a week.

Most all locomotive engineers from the diesel era still suffer
hearing loss. Most all operating employees for railroads with more
than 10 years of service have some hearing loss. About ten years ago
the railroads started losing lawsuits over hearing losses and

started
a hearing conservation program. Too bad it was 27 years too late.

Biggest complaints from crews which still use those 1st and 2nd
generation locomotives, noise and exhaust fumes in the cab.


Guess what?

They'r ecrap. Just gettin off the stinky 75 in fact. Thank fukiin christ
for that.

1315 more days and then I can retire. I've sailed nearly 800 nautical
miles in the last 3 weeks... I've only fired up the engine three
times. all three times because the local port master disliked vessels
coming or leaving under sail. Silence is golden...

Sailboats gotta luff them.



yes. they won; tpay me to make em go though. ****.

Man, the kerosene smell of a hot re-fuel of the Otter during skydive
operations (Spaceland, Houston Gulf, '80's & '90's) was part of the
experience.

Had a chance to wander through a Blackhawk at Wings Over houston last
year and the smell brought it all back. Right down to the Sunday
morning first jump of the day when all the pickled eggs and beer farts
would begin to make an appearance at 5K. Mix in a little toxic TexMex
for flavor and you were lucky if you were sitting by the aft door.

Mm, no. I seem to remeber hearing the term, though. What is it?


back in the olden days the trains toilet dumped straight onto the
tracks...the TP that persisted was called a "track weasel".

I seen just about everything. including the look on a kids face just

Nice. Blimps do lousy in adverse wind conditions but who needs to
travel anyway wehn teh weather is bad?

^_^


They fly a dirigible. Check out the placement of the engines.

So they're side mounted. They dont make a blimp that can kickass in
strong winds.
Too Much Surface Area, fyi.

assume
that
it would be a regular item during initial, recurrent or
simulator training. And yet, I cannot recall ever reviewing

the
matter or
being
exposed to a compressor stall/surge during a simulator

session.


I have, but only a couple of times and just to run through the
drill.Most checklists just have you retarding the throttle

and/or
shutting down anyhow.
Most times nowadays with high bypass fans it trashes the engine
straight
away, unlike the old JT8s and such which would fart away

happily
enough
until you pulled the thrust lever back.


Bertie


Sounds like you, retarded and farting away.



Awww, maxie make a witty!

ROLF!


Tie me kangaroo down, sport.

What-ho, Squiffy?

yes, but they were so much more fun

Ok ok...totally *genius* idea: dirigibles.


Excellent. I'll sign on for a course.


Yeah, think on that for a while.


Its either that or the locomotive, chaps.


Only if it's a real one. i.e. Steam


No! Hell no!


And what pray tell is wrong with steam?


Steam locomotives? Everything.


Well man spit it out! Lets not play guessing games here!


Have you ever been on a working steam locomotive?


They are very dirty (producing soot and ash. Very noisy. (usually
about 90-105 dB. They get louder under full power)


Excelelnt.



Most all locomotive engineers from the steam era were deaf. and
suffered breathing problems.


Pretty much the same as pilts, then.



Most all locomotive engineers from the diesel era still suffer
hearing loss. Most all operating employees for railroads with more
than 10 years of service have some hearing loss. About ten years
ago the railroads started losing lawsuits over hearing losses and
started a hearing conservation program. Too bad it was 27 years too
late.


Biggest complaints from crews which still use those 1st and 2nd
generation locomotives, noise and exhaust fumes in the cab.


Guess what?

Man, the kerosene smell of a hot re-fuel of the Otter during skydive
operations (Spaceland, Houston Gulf, '80's & '90's) was part of the
experience.

Had a chance to wander through a Blackhawk at Wings Over houston last
year and the smell brought it all back. Right down to the Sunday
morning first jump of the day when all the pickled eggs and beer farts
would begin to make an appearance at 5K. Mix in a little toxic TexMex
for flavor and you were lucky if you were sitting by the aft door.


Well, this stuff is different. it's not fuel gettng in, well there is
some of that as wel, but engine lube oil, which, depending on the brand,
contains **** that was developed as a chemical warfare agent by the
germans in the 30s
See Tricresyl organo phosphates, just to name one. In some types of
airplanes you can actually smell it. RR powered 757s and Bae 146s for
instance are amongst the worst, but anything that uses bleed air is
dumping some in. It's quite a different smell from burnt kerosene,
though.
Boeing are going with a seperate blwoer for the 787 because of this
problem.

Not while its running.

Yeap. Coal fired mostly.

Most all locomotive engineers from the steam era were deaf. and
suffered breathing problems.

My granpa was one
Deaf as hell but no breathing problems...he didnt know who the ****

I
was later since he was all alzheimersy & stuff.

YEah...back in the day it was a macho job and you didnt **** & moan
about the conditions.

Biggest complaints from crews which still use those 1st and 2nd
generation locomotives, noise and exhaust fumes in the cab.

Ever seen a track weasel?


Mm, no. I seem to remeber hearing the term, though. What is it?


back in the olden days the trains toilet dumped straight onto the
tracks...the TP that persisted was called a "track weasel".




OK never heard of that. ANd now it's lodged in my head forever. When
will I learn?
