I'm amazed that plane didn't go back over once it went around backwards.

I'm amazed that the cameras that cover the runways for security, insurance, and investigative purposes don't record in HD.

The reason they crashed was because the "trainee" left seater forgot that in a 777 when you switch off auto pilot, the auto throttle goes to HOLD. The first officer called out that they were sinking too fast twice and it was too late by the time they tried to throttle up. He had even been told this before and I guess it wasn't the first time he had forgotten. Its a fucking tragedy.

Wow! I just figured it slammed the runway hard and skidded on it's belly. I didn't realized it flipped up like that. Plane held together pretty well and lucky so many survived.

Not to mention totally ignoring the VASI lights for the entire final approach.

RED over RED and you'll be dead.
RED over WHITE and you're alright.

That's crazy, planes are certainly not meant to move that way.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 12:24:49 PM EST
So did all of the passengers end up on a mysterious island only to find out that they were actually dead later on?

WHERE WERE THE FUCKING PILOTS!!!

Was ANYBODY looking outside?

Was ANYBODY flying the plane?!?!?!

They were TOO LOW!!

They were TOO SLOW!

They were WAAAAAY behind the power curve!

Did those ASSHOLES just sit there at the controls and watch this happen!?!?!?
