I used the new Air France livery in this video instead of the old (correct) one, but that's because I couldn't find it anywhere online... I am sorry. I hope you'll still appreciate the video! I worked so hard to make it...

It is deceptive to give the number of flying hours for a pilot. How many hours has he been flying in actual, not simulated, emergencies? That’s what counts.

I have only been on a simulator for about a month now. But I've learned a great deal from sim as well as watching these videos. Having said that, I have a dumb question that's probably been answered. But as trivial as it sounds, wouldn't it be beneficial to have pilots do a few simulations of their flights before they fly them? Not flying an entire 12 hour flight. But at the very least run them through everything they will face on their flights....takeoff, landing, route and so on. Then run them through *EVERY* single feature of the instrumentation systems/failures. I'd say about half of the videos I've watched, crashed because the pilots didn't know something about the system and how it would end up reacting. Like I said, it doesn't need to be the whole damn flight. But as far as the videos I've watched go (maybe 25 of them) about half would have been saved. Meticulousness might help save more lives. Even with this crash....had they fed *ALL* the info into a simulator, wouldn't the simulator have shown them their problem? I know there are some bad pilots out there. But even bad ones like these, would have been better prepared.

The captain’s sentence was not long enough. What is the average sentance for manslaughter.
Gloria Koch (17 days ago)
If I were to be flying later this month, these would not be good to watch. 😘 I have never been afraid of flying. My husband is a small craft pilot and flew for his job for ~40 years. However, later this month we are driving about 5 hours to board a large cruise ship. So, I am fine watching this....I think!

Sounds like an earlier version of the recent BOEING anti-stall software problem where the computer overrides the pilot's input. This should NOT have been blamed on the pilot who was familiar with flying airplanes and less familiar with the new "safety" anti-stall software.

I like Airbus but I totally dislike their phylosophy of automation. I think that the pilot should be free and decide over the computer. It would be perfect if Airbus change and make less automatized planes.

This stunt was foolhardy from the beginning and badly planned. When the spectators were in a different location the pilot should either have cancelled it or have done a go-around. As for the plane, computer programmers rarely get everything right the first time. (How many patches and updates has Microsoft sent you for Windows?) Having watched a number of these videos I think fly-by-wire is a lovely concept, but no program can anticipate every situation, and pilots need to know when to disable certain features and the consequences of doing so.

Thanks, great vid as usual. FBW is a system which does away with the old system of manual control of the different parts of the aircraft using cables. Electronic signals are sent by wire to the different control points and actuators are finessed by the computers to get the desired movement. The A320 was the first commercial aircraft to employ this technology. Fighter planes were already using it much earlier.

... The very design concept of the Airbus deeply scares me. I'm glad my flying days are over, because I don't think I could have even considered flying in one. My overall "take" on the thing was that the French had made *HAL 9000* a "back-seat driver".

Can someone explain why the pilots were punished? The aircraft wouldn't let the pilot pull up, not his fault. That's like going to jail for crashing your car into someone because the mechanic forgot to bleed the brakes. It's the mechanics fault, not yours.

Don't understand why the Captain didn't just abort landing and go around again to reassess landing. What's the damn rush in lieu of safety?

All survived the crash, but three people were not able to get out of the plane?  Does that mean that the crash itself didn't kill anyone, but the fire killed them afterward?  I was thankful all survived then smacked in the face when it said that the pilots were charged with manslaughter, which means they caused the death of someone.

But the statistics as according to more than 10 websites and the Companies' estimates in orders even in the same time frame show that the Boeing 737 is the most successful aircraft in aviation history.

This system is good when you have a crew of panicked dullards however, I would rather put my trust in the capable hands of many of the great pilots I've met on your channel. We will call them Sully's Rangers as this video demonstrates that things are not always as they appear and a A.I. can't tell the difference! Good job on video, thanks

How can they be charged for involuntary manslaughter when no one died????
Steve Kuiper (4 months ago)
I really like your videos Sir but as a former Aerospace Engineering Executroid I would like to insert one comment correction. "Fly-by-wire" as you mentioned in this video implies that the computer is in control of the aircraft which is incorrect. Most modern aircraft use "fly-by-wire" because its replaces the old skool hydraulic systems. Fly-by-wire uses electrical power instead of "heavy" hydraulic fluid to move actuation systems. Boeing designs their avionic systems in such a manner that allows their pilots to easily override any computer controlled decisions unlike Airbus which does allow some manual override but essentially the cockpit avionics are designed around computer control not the pilot. I'm no pilot but the Airbus decision to automated flight control intelligence is well "Scary" to say the least. Hence the name "ScareBus"

These are great videos and it would be a shame to have them ruined by really awful grammar errors. I see them about three or four times a video, but this one was especially bad. You should have someone proof read what you write and these will be polished gems. Keep up the great work - I am addicted
Kim Siewers (4 months ago)
It's interesting that the computer was turned "off" and yet over-rode the pilot's attempt to pull up "to prevent a stall" I don't know a thing about airplanes, but it seems confusing that sometimes the plane is run by pilots and sometimes by a computer and you may not know which when seconds matter. Of course, fooling around will get you into trouble. There was no need for this flyby, no need to risk passengers, no need to fly at low altitude and low speed with the gear down.

The most produced airliner of all time is the Douglas DC 3 with over 16,000 being produced since 1935. The Boeing 737 comes in second. The Boeing 737 is the best-selling commercial aircraft in aviation history with almost 15,000 aircraft ordered and over 14,500 being sold. By 1 Jan 2018, the 737 had sold 14,532 aircraft and had an order backlog of 4,668 aircraft, including more than 4,200 orders for the 737 MAX. This is about one-third of the entire order backlog for all large commercial jets built by Boeing and Airbus. Even with the rise in production rate to 52 per month in 2018, if there were no further orders this would ensure the 737's production until at least 2026. In 2013 Boeing took net orders for 1208 737s; that stands as the most of any model by any major commercial manufacturer in history. By 1 Jan 2018, the total number of 737NGs ordered was over 7000, 70% of which were for the -800 series. The tables and chart show orders and deliveries by series and year. Data is correct up to 1 January 2018. As of 1 Jan 2018 the 737 MAX has orders for over 4,300 aircraft

Your flight simulations are always awesome. You automatically always get a thumbs up. These videos have a great educational value and you explain things in a very understandable way. Not all of us know how planes work or what does what, so your explanations are very helpful and enlightening. It doesn't scare me away from flying if I have to. Even though I don't like to fly, I am not afraid to place my trust in a Pilot as long as I can see or meet him before I take my seat.

Rudy Schloesing (4 months ago)
Nice video as always. You got the name of the crew wrong though. The CPT was Michel Asseline and the FO was Pierre Mazières. The early software of the A320 thought the plane was about to land as it was configured so. On top of that in order to rush into position for the flyby, the CPT had the throttles at idle for a while which took a good 8 seconds to spool back up when TOGA was applied. I remember something about flight idle being inoperative therefore the engines would go to ground idle which is a few % slower....

Two magic buttons in the bus - 1) Autopilot disconnect on the control stick and 2) Auto-Thrust disconnect, one button on the outside of either/each thrust lever. ***Bang those two buttons at once (two thumbs, two buttons) and YOU are in charge of the jet, not the computers.
Rich Grant (2 months ago)
+Owen and Anna- Due they put power too late and toward the trees they tried to raise the nose too much and too close to stall speed. If the computer let them put that amount of AOA with engines still not at ToGa, they could have stalled it from 100-200 feet instead of 30 feet. All dead. The computer saved them.
Owen and Anna (3 months ago)
Next time you should pay more attention. The safety system that dropped the nose was a safety system, they couldn’t disengage it.

The a320 isn't the most successful commercial airplane, that title goes to the 737 family.
dnaspower (4 months ago)
This channel unfortunately lost some respect points after this video. No airspeed, no energy to climb, simple. Had it been a 737 for example it would stall at climb attempt and smash harder on the ground. The captain hit the thrust levers too late and the CFM's even performed better than expected.
Owen and Anna (3 months ago)
There one small problem with that theory, in that IT WOULD NOT HAVE STALLED hey I hate to rain on your parade but there’s something called engines, on most planes, that have throttles, that can be pushed to a higher thrust, that can prevent a stall when they pull up. If they didn’t have enough time, it would’ve hit at a higher angle, not harder.

*What BS !!!!!* Quite obviously Airbus was at fault. The notion that the airplane refuses to do what the pilot specifies by manipulating the controls is *BOGUS.* Then to turn around and blame the pilot because the airplane didn't do what the pilot was told? This was *PURE POLITICS* to make scapegoats out of the pilots when the fault clearly belongs on Airbus. But Airbus is considered "economically crucial" and was thus protected. The fact is, in these airplanes, there are no pilots or copilots, just a computer program written by a committee somewhere... and kids called pilots playing a video game that does whatever the game wants to do. No way will I ever get into an Airbus airplane or any airplane designed to be flown like this.
Peter Medvešek (1 month ago)
+Owen and Anna But the aircraft prevent the stall. If the plane fallows the pilot commands, stall might have happened and the crash will be worse.
Owen and Anna (3 months ago)
1) He manually have it full thrust and manual thrust is actually faster than auto thrust. 2) Pay more attention to the video, they had so many tasks they didn’t have time to stabilize the altitude. 3) They flew at that speed because the were told to do so, they were told to do this flyover, they didn’t just randomly decide “hey, let’s do a flyover at low altitude at alpha max” they were told to do so. 4) the pilot applied toga power and pulled back on the stick to pull up and climb to avoid the trees. The correct action! Then the airbus pushed the nose down because it didn’t detect the high thrust and *thought* that the plane was about to stall. THE AIRBUS IS AT FAULT THE PILOTS ARE INNOCENT! WHY’D THEY SEND THEM TO JAIL!?!? And I will also never get in an airbus if I can help it.
Randy Carlson (4 months ago)
max bootstrap Per your last sentence: Exactly the point. The plane wasn’t meant to be flown like that. Under 100 ft at that speed the plane is expecting to land. When it didn’t and inputs were applied by the pilot it assumed stall. Normally the plane would apply go around/full thrust with nose up. The auto thrust was disengaged by the pilot so the thrust wasn’t there for them to get out of it. Even if the pilots had full control, they were still to low and slow to avoid those trees. The pilot put the plane that low and that slow, not the computers.

This was a very French accident. Who else than Air France would put a space cowboy in a new plane to show off at an unmarked, unbriefed airshow? Of course they fucked it up and let the plane drift to 30ft, nose up, at alpha max, of COURSE the plane would think "I'm dying" and try to save itself from the stupid human at the controls. Of course the plane would be blamed for being stupid when it was the stupid human who set it up to fail. Just like the Concorde - also a space cowboy who tried to take off overweight with FOD on the runway. And ofcourse AF447 where they managed to stall a plane so severely the stall warning went OFF when the computers just gave up from exhaustion with the stupid human at the controls. Well, at least they managed to crash wings level with their butt first. Gotta count for something, huh!
