3 "incidents" / accidents in less than a month!? AA drug a wing tip in Charlotte then this crash in Jamaica then another wing tip stike on Christmas Eve - what's going on at AA?! GOD bless the guys on this flight if they landed long, the FAA is on the war path.
I'm sure Joshua Woods parents find that pretty funny....
this incident as generated some hangar discussion at my place, as a result, can anyone post the "official" FAA/NTSB/NASA/ALPA/ETC "endorsed" criteria for go-arounds, etc?
I recall you should land on the first third of the runway, however I personally try to physically land on top of the 1000 foot markers, but at 10:40 PM at night I can't dig up any official guidance.
Those are fighting words mother f###er!
I am a Southwest Airlines pilot. I think of Joshua Woods much more often than you do. That incident clearly showed braking actions that were less than reported, thrust reversers that were slow to deploy, and two pilots that flew a textbook approach and landing. They were unlucky.
I was trying to give a laugh to those who have been very quick to hurl a dart at Southwest in the past for taxi speeds and our Burbank over-run.
I'm usually a pretty laid back dude but I'd gladly give you a chance to repeat your quip to my face.
