I remember hearing about this but never got the specifics on it till now. A lot things just worked out that day, his feet getting caught on the yoke, deciding not to let him go, the altitude, etc. It seems to be a habit of some maintenance workers cutting corners to speed things up. Nuts, bolts, screws etc are engineered to a certain size for a reason and must be maintained. To many times something like this has happened for the very same reason, got in a hurry. Just when I think TheFlightChannel can't get any better they do. You never cease to amaze me with the graphics, the information provided with the details not to mention the addition of side by side views. You are nearing 500,000 subs and I personally can't wait to see you hit 1 Million which won't take long and you certainly deserve. Thank you again Sir for sharing your work and spending the time to put these video's together.

The bravery and cold blood of the first officer and the cabin crew was simply amazing. What could have ended in a tragedy is instead a great example of what men can do to get things right even when everything turns dramatic. Honor to those men!

Imagine surviving and being told that the crew contemplated discarding you during the ordeal......geez!

I am a little confused as to what type of plane this was,,, Can I assume being British airlines , it being a European made Airbus ? because of the small discrepancy in bolt size ( specifically diameter ) were metric bolts used , when SAE, were originally used ? Because I can not think of any different size metric nuts and bolts fitting together. or SAE bolts and nuts fitting together, However some combinations of metric and SAE bolts will fit loosely together . ( the main cause ? ) Length of the bolt should have been least 125% of its diameter into the threads of a similar material of the bolt, But if the threads are a softer material ( like aluminum ) then the bolt length into the threads would be much more critical .

The first officer took the right decision and the crew members were using brains rather than getting scared.Glad to see that everyone was practical at that moment.Respect.

Hope those maintenance guys got their faces stomped. And WTF flight crew???trying to dump him out the window... that deserves a huge kick in the dick and throat punches for everyone except the pilot that stopped them. Was that blood or barf on the side of the cockpit?

Before using the toilet in the plane, my father always tell me not to press any buttons for fun or I might be ejected out of the plane. 😐 This story is a miracle. Thank you sir for all your hard work videos. 👍🏼

I recall staff in an aircraft manufacturing establishment complaining about how trivial and insignificant, how irrelevant, boring and unimportant their jobs seemed, to them. As a low level supervisor I was considered a pain because I insisted on things being done strictly in accordance with official procedures, regardless of how senseless these might seem. I often wondered how my rebellious subordinates would feel if they had a better job eg flying a plane where some low level staff like them had failed to do their job in accordance with proper procedures. Not so bored? Somewhat more stimulated?

This is incredible how everything turned out and no one died! The pilot returning to flying after 5 months was terrific. God bless the pilot and the crew and that he lived to tell the tale!

The kind of effort,research and work that goes into making numerous videos like this is truly commendable. You deserve more than a 1M to 2M subscribers for this kind of effort. Commendable job truly! Thank you for your efforts so we can watch all this in such detail and clarity.I say this in unity all the numerous videos of yours I have watched!!!

What a great story when done to the flight crews and co pilot ,, don't know why so many people 👎 this video alot people with hate in there heart's 🙄
Ralph Rich (15 days ago)
I guess the Capt. wasn't strapped in.
I'm sure that just the air pressure at that altitude would suck him out of the plane after the window was gone.....even if he was strapped in.
JDK16 (14 days ago)
I was wondering the same thing. If he was - then the equipment needs replacement. If he wasn't, why wasn't he?

''Hey we don't have the proper bolts for this window replacement, but we have some extras that i figure will be ok even tho they are totally the wrong size, should i go ahead with those???'' ''Yea sure, it's only a front window of a jet liner that will fly up 30,000 feet. Just use 'em'' Hope those morons not only got fired but fined and jailed . It's not outdated coffee they're serving up. Fucking clowns

This reminds of that Hawaiian plane that lost a chunk of the fuselage roof mid-flight, yet they lost only 2 or 3 people out of it. They landed the plane fine otherwise but it must have been horrific.

Ali Alrishawi (1 month ago)
why the flight attendants (there were several of them) didnt pull the captin back in? i know its hard due to fast speed but multiple people should be able to bring him in
JDK16 (14 days ago)
No room for them to get in and get leverage. Remember, there's no space behind the captain's seat and no way to get it out of the way. He was out the side, so the first flight attendant was really the only one able to really pull (and was injured by the flailing body). Only maybe one other could reach over and get a hand on. Keep in mind, the captain's body is outside, acting as a sail.
funkierfawn budgie (1 month ago)
wow whoever thought about releasing the Captain is sick in the head
Thomas Daniels (1 month ago)
Why???? What if releasing the captain was the only way to regain control of the aircraft? Should all the passengers and crew because liberal cucks like you dont think before you speak. Let me to you, if im the Captain and my body has the controls blockes and is causing the plane to dive, let me go if thats the last resort. The copilot was right about engine damage, but on another aircraft, the body may not fly anywhere near the wing. Thankfully that wasnt the case here. It baffles me that you think ita better for everyone to die instead of one. I bet i can tell you what the pilot would say if he was ever was asked if he should be releassd.

Youlyrics songs (1 month ago)
In case of emergencies on the, the pilots must be aware, but not just the pilots, the flight crews too so that the passengers are safe, but in this video, the flight crews are in charge to control the damage aircraft and to give care to the pilot that is hurt and the passengers must know what to do in case of emergencies they have to BRACE POSITION. That's what to do if there is an emergency. Remember:Don't think of yourself only but think the other people too who needs care.

What a lucky pilot and what a brave heroic crew and ofcourse FO. But in the video what are those wires connecting tail horizontal stabilizer to fuselage?

So, if they were to throw the captain's body out, they would basically kill him.

That flight assistant, a woman, who grabbed the captain by his belt has more balls than any other dude that I know.

What...? Are they about to decide if they let the captain's body go out to certain death?
4thcavalier (1 month ago)
"The flight and cabin crew decide whether to let the captains body go" I understand that it may have crossed their minds in the best interest of everyone else on board. But I wonder what the Captain must have thought of that when he found out they considered it.
Pablo Gonzalez (1 month ago)
As a captain he would have understood it was a consideration if it was putting the plane in danger but luckily for him it was more dangerous to let him go
Mike12522 (12 days ago)
This is one of the most unbelievable air survival stories I 've heard . The initial wind chill air temperature for the Captain ( -17 Celcius, with 345 M.P.H. winds ) was BELOW - 60 F. ( - 47 Celcius ) for many minutes. He was lightly dressed, and frozen stiff. He suffered from hypothermia, shock, injuries, exposure, frostbite, and lack of oxygen. By all logic, he should never have survived. The windshield blowout took place at the almost unbreathable height of 17,300 feet. The co-pilot dove the plane at increased speeds to level out at 11,000 feet within 2 minutes. He then reduced speed to 172 M.P.H., but it was still extremely hard to breathe, and temperatures were still freezing cold. It took at least 20 minutes to land the plane. Yet, the Captain hung on to life, and lived through all of that. Within five months, he was flying again.

Lots of awkward decisions? Welcome to the real world! Hindsight isn't very helpful here, so people condemning the crew for considering letting the 'body' go are missing the point. If the captain's body was irretrievable and endangering the aircraft, the correct decision would have been to let it go. If the captain was clearly still alive, but irretrievable and endangering the aircraft, THE DECISION WOULD HAVE BEEN THE SAME. It's a terrible decision to have to make, but that's what command and responsibility is all about. That's what the stripes on your shoulders really mean. Flight crews always appear glamorous and chic, but beneath that exterior they're professionals trained to deal with life and death situations. Sorry if that doesn't fit in with the cosy 'Disney/Hollywood' idea of piloting - nobility, heroism, fairness, justice, niceness, wholesomeness, etc. The only Hollywood quote worthy of this situation comes from Mr Spock in one of the Star Trek films: "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one." BUT that's all fiction. This amazing story has a happy ending. Yay. But don't forget that, if the crew hadn't been able to free the controls, the captain would have been ejected and would now be dead. A sobering thought. Being able to fly a big jet on a simulator at home is fun, but it only gives you maybe 40% of what being in control of a passenger plane is all about. No simulator can reproduce the sense of jeopardy that lies just below the surface. No simulator makes you actually, physically responsible for hundreds of lives - including your own. I'm sure many people watching this channel will also be fans of the 'Captain Joe', 'Dutch Pilot Girl', and 'Mentour Pilot' channels. They're brilliantly entertaining and inspiring, but don't kid yourselves that air crew have an easy job. Flying a big jet is NOT just like driving a train or a bus. This kind of video is a great reminder that commercial pilots are in positions of responsibility, just like a ship's captain. They're trained in order to enable them to make tough decisions that affect hundreds of lives every day. It's worth remembering if you dream of one day getting your wings... Whatever. Congratulations, TheFlightChannel - you do excellent work! :-)

I can't believe they contemplated releasing the captain. That's the dumbest sh* I have ever heard in my life. And the only reason they didn't was in case his body flew into the engine? How about the fact that he is still alive??? Unbelievable.

Sorry to disagree with many of the commentators here, the graphics are great but the description of what was going on was very poor. What did they mean by, THE CAPTAIN WAS OUTSIDE THE PLANE? How far out was he, was he 90% out or just his head and shoulders. What was the door that jammed the flight controls. There are LOTS OF DETAILS that are just skipped over or ignored. Was the captain injured in any way. How long did it take for his recovery. As I said the graphics are good but the rest of the video STINKS.
