  1. A breakthrough scientific discovery about aircraft nonlinear instability was recently made by Steve. S. Tang. He published the findings in the book: Nonlinear Instability and Inertial Coupling EFfects – The Root Causes Leading to Aircraft Crashes, Land Vehicle Rollovers, and Ship Capsizes. The book is available only at The following video shows this nonlinear instability phenomenon, The author of the book believes that the root cause for Colgan Air Flight 3407 is this nonlinear instability discovered in the book. Detailed analysis for Colgan Air Flight 3407 crash is given in the book.

  2. It’s so sad that good people passed away due to the company falsifying pilot logs and pushing their people too hard with little pay. These are pilots, a skilled profession, which should level a skilled paycheck with manageable hours. I make more working at an auto lot as a lot attendant than the co-pilot made.

    As a side note, the actress that portrayed the co-pilot in the recreation episode was attractive. She was fine fine FINE!!!! One lucky guy somewhere hooked up with her!!! I have often wondered if she continued a career in acting.

  3. PBS with its crazy liberal matter-of-factness makes this out to be a product of fatigue (and more). The NTSB did not call it fatigue. And it wasn't. And salaries had nothing to do with it. They made errors in judgement – although it well can be argued they were errors in training. It seems most likely that both crewmembers' actions were based on reaction to a stall warning as belief that it was a tail stall, reinforced by having recently viewed the NASA materials. It well explains their actions.

    Morever, they were near the ground, with perceived loss of thrust – and rightly or wrongly, they acted in defiance of CFIT. He should have just gone to basic principles but he was so stunned by the stall indication "out of the blue" that he made the intuitive reaction instead of the trained reaction.

    Her actions were logical. You pull a lever, plane loses control, so you push it back, and inform the captain. That sounds pretty logical to me.

    There was a brief nonsterile conversation but anyone who says that that caused the mis-reaction is just wrong. The pilot swung into descent procedures relatively on time and the SHTF before even starting the landing checklist.

    What he flocked up was not having situational awareness of altitude, and the IMPENDING stall warning indicator, at the very time he is in idle and ordered gear and flaps. That's the pilot error here.

  4. My English is fine but l found the sound quality extremely to difficult to understand what they were saying at times. Vernacular aside the static and speech patterns (to quick l missed a few numbers), left me with only one thought – we're all gonna die!

  5. Iced inlets often won't tolerate full throttle but it's insanely difficult to fight the urge to keep pushing it forward when it's possible that a lower power setting will yield more usable power than full throttle……….we won't know if that was the case.

  6. Blame a pilot is always the answer, did you know the pilot made a mistake because he was so tired because of the abusive worktime he had, and he was under sleep inertia?
