Here we go again! There are so many operational short comings on this incident flight that the whole damn airline should be shut down and the flight crews re-trained to a much higher standard. Sad to see that not much has changed in the last 20 years!

> In the process of starting the engine, says the inquiry, the aircraft “lost a considerable amount of energy” but the crew “did not notice” that the airspeed was bleeding away, to as little as 127kt.

Eastern 401. Four on the flight deck trying to change a light bulb and they "did not notice" the altitude.

They were on AP and the "bump" caused the ALT HLD to disengage with an insignificant aural warning.
FrankHarvey
Thanks Vector4Traffic. I understand the AP disengaging was what actually led to the gradual bleeding off of their altitude.

dead foot, dead engine. Oh, they don't use feet anymore. It used to be so simple!

This sounds like British Midlands flight 92. They also shut down the wrong engine only good thing here is these pilots didn’t crash. I also praise the crew of British midlands flight 92 as they noticed the issue and tried to restart the good engine and at least got over the motorway.
FrankHarvey
But wasn't (a significant) part of the issue that the Crew on 92 had a lot of time in 73x's but almost none in the 734 which was new to BMI, and Boeing had changed the flight deck air feed so when it started to feed smoke they shut down the engine which fed the flight deck air in the previous models they had all their time in. And metal fatigue in a very low time fan blade, which initiated the entire incident, also didn't help.

From what I heard it Boeing changed the cockpit design as well as the vibration gauges and also the ac ran off the right hand engine in the 300’s and in the 400’s both engines powered it. That with cockpit training and not enough training in the aircraft contributied to the accident.
FrankHarvey
Thanks for reply. My impression was also time/training in 300, not 400 was one of the contributing factors, but primary factor was still a very low-time blade breaking on a new a/c. To get back to the cockpit/airflows (as you just explained), it seems to me that extensive crew prior experience of systems in the 300 meant when they got smoke from the vents they assumed it must be coming from the right, so, (as they didn't know it was now fed from both sides), they naturally shut down the right engine.

in a prop twin losing an engine you have deadfoot, dead engine. Here, dead brain, flown by glider pilots. No way to fabricate any kind of excuse or explaination. The engine instruments are smack dab in the middle of the instrument panel, available for proper interpretation by any competent pilot sitting up front. So close to a crash caused by pilot error....
