Colombia is at fault here as well. How does an airport not have radar for the air traffic controllers?? why not build another? the thing was destroyed in 1992? they had 3 years to restore this critical item.

If those pilots were experience than I'm an astronaut and I'm not. Feel bad for the passengers and the rest of the crew in my mind the pilots killed the ppl on board by being negligent .

Again the pilots, hmhm never the system
Incompetence! The Captain should not have deleted the waypoints. They are there to take the aircraft on a route that cleared the mountains on the way. They were flying into the northern end of the Andes and as such the waypoints are essential to avoid mountains especially in the dark. It didn't crash JUST BEFORE LANDING, it was a long way off.
kilahchris (7 days ago)
i agree why did the pilot delete the way points what purpose does that serve.
J Boy (22 days ago)
I love these airplane videos, its crazy what little mistakes actually cause these crashes but....... Why couldn't some alarm or sensor let these pilots know that the speed brakes were on while they were trying to climb the mountain? Thats my question, cause it seemed they were too nervous to think straight.
Ricky Tenderkiss (22 days ago)
I was very glad to read the dog survived. I always feel bad for the animals in the cargo hold (or, indeed, in the passenger compartment in carry-on bags) who just get left to a horrible fate whenever an airplane ditches, even when the ditch is kinda survivable.

... I'm enjoying your channel very much, Thank You! I'm an inveterate watcher of this kind of docu for years by now. I'm fascinated by your wonderful use of quite realistically complex CGI to create an ambience of critical-analytical purity, and simplicity, that most effectively "speaks for itself".

I still don't get how they don't notice that the plane is flying towards Bogotá (the Romeo NDB is close to the threshold of Rwy 31R of El Dorado airport) until it's too late. They didn't thought to input the whole name of the waypoint?

Simple the plane was going to my city cali, colombia, the guerrilla had blown the ils antenna, therefore they needed to land vor, they had to put roz, but mistakenly put ros, which directed them to the rozo in bogota instead of the one in cali for final approach, the plane turned towards the mountain, they could have saved themselves but forgot to stow the spoilers, the aircraft never lifted therefore crashing at the tip of the mountain, dec 20, 1995

I’m in love with this channel absolutely no complaints very detailed great graphics
The captain was a moron who refused to believe he was in trouble, or just didn’t know what to do....in other words he lost command. In addition, was not familiar with coding of nav facilities in that area of South America, he had zero situational awareness, not realizing he was tracking a mountain valley. His go around procedure was inadequate, leaving extended drag producing devices, while needing all the lift he could get from the wing. Not much you can do to prevent this kind of crash. You cannot train every crew in the simulator, in every possibly catastrophic situation. Some will ask why? Not enough money.....too much time to train them all. They would never fly, just train.

While I love this channel and the videos it produces, it has greatly diminished my faith in the idea that air travel remains the statistically safest means of travel. I would though remind myself that, all things considered, with the number of flights per day, these are still the exception and not the rule. But I did stop watching these for two days before my last flight.

And this is why people working in certain positions must be bilingual or even trilingual or at least know perfectly the language. Language barriers can cause serious tragedies like this. This is one of the best channels on YouTube. What an amazing job you're doing the flight Channel!

A mountain was in their "Flight Path" due to poor navigation and hence poor airmanship. Controlled Flight into Terrain. You have to know where you are relative to the surrounding terrain at all times. That's why the CVR and FDR is in the tail. Ever hear of a plane backing into a mountain? In Flight Sim getting lost in the mountains is real easy if we do not have both good charts and good navigation data. Soon the GPWS will scream and "bammo!" If one is lost it is Best to climb to an altitude at least 1000' above the highest terrain first then get your bearings. Then plan a proper approach path through the mountains down to the runway and keep it stabilized.

Fantastic video, as are all of yours. One little difference in this video is that the crash takes place in 1995. As the American plane is taxiing to then runway it shows a United Airlines jet with the Continental livery on it, which of course was not the case back in 1995. Just a small glitch I noticed. I enjoy all of your vids and they are the most realistic and comprehensive on youtube. Thanks for doing such a great job on them. Much respect.

One wrong detail and everyone dies. I used to work at a hotel next to O'hare and we had a section of the hotel contracted to an airline. It was an extended stay hotel with a full sized kitchen, bedrooms, living room etc. One time this female pilot got so @#%cking drunk that she passed out in the hallway. I woke her up and she started fighting me in a frantic paranoia as she was just regaining her consciousness. I didn't bother to say anything to anyone but turns out the next day another employee experienced the same thing with her and told the management. She was a senior pilot, a captain. It honestly made me feel scared and worried that there are people like that who command an airliner with hundreds of lives on board. As you can see in this video, a small error, misunderstanding, overlooked interpretation can lead to a severe accident. I know there are many fantastic pilots out there who would give their life away to save the passengers but there are also very irresponsible pilots behind the scenes, doing drugs and heavily drinking. I wonder if it takes another catastrophic accident to somehow screen pilots if they are thoroughly rested/capable/conscious/aware/alert before a flight. Thanks for hearing me out.

I do not understand what was so important with the waypoints. Why chase to and fro after them, why just not going straight to the airport for landing?
kilahchris (7 days ago)
the waypoints are important because of the terrain. flying in a mountainous area in total darkness is dangerous. That is why approved waypoints are assigned specifically so pilots do not crash into mountains

+Kevin Fegan Good explanation. Thank you!

The destination airport did not have working radar so the ATC had no way to track/monitor the position (LAT/LON/Altitude) of the aircraft. Having the pilots report to the ATC as they reached each waypoint lets the ATC know their progress and position. Mostly, the pilots didn't need to know about the waypoints except to report them to ATC. But, knowing that the destination airport did not have working radar, and that the ATC couldn't help them with their position, if the pilots followed the waypoints they would have remained on a known flightpath and wouldn't have gotten lost/off course. So, that was the purpose of following the waypoints. But, once they realized they were past the waypoints, they should have contacted the ATC and informed him of their actual position (GPS) and asked for guidance. I'm sure the ATC would not have instructed them to backtrack to the missed waypoints. He would have probably just given the pilots a new heading and told them the next waypoint to report.

One thing I have noticed watching these fascinating videos; whenever the auto system warns "terrain" pull up, its is always too late!! Is there anyway it could warn the pilots without it being too late
kilahchris (7 days ago)
it was not too late. The pilots could of cleared the mountain had they remembered that the speed brakes were engaged.

I rarely make a comment on your channel, but I am making an exception on this video. What happened was totally inexcusable for the captain. Erasing the checkpoints rozo and tulua way points simply left him blind. He had no freaking idea where he was or where he was going. Simply outrageous.

Sound GPWS Is plane to high, the planes crash in Forest,159 People onboard Killed And 5 Passenggers Injured. Because The Radar System is not in real-time updates to pilot, Cali ATC Call to plane makes '' Approach,Go Ahead. DME is 36 Seconds . The still plane is turning sharply to Mountainous Area.

Yesterday I posted that I liked the airline, with reference to American Airlines. Today I have to post that I do not like the airline, with reference to American Airlines. Why? Well, a sneaking suspicion that AA were more concerned about not paying for hotel rooms for the passengers whose incoming flight made them too late for their connecting flight: this one. Was there no-one to point out that the plane would likely be landing in a dangerous site in the dark? Did anyone check the crew's degree of familiarity of what it was like to fly into Bogota at night with no ATC radar? $X per room multiplied by Z number of rooms required = more than we want to pay when it costs nothing to send our personnel and or customers into a devilishly difficult place for the perfect execution of a flawless nocturnal approach and landing. Add one serving of human vanity, and you've killed off too many people and too avoidably for you to sleep well again without medication for many days, hours weeks, up to and including many years

Death by stupidity! Hey I got an idea...Let's turn off all this high tech navigation equipment on board, ignore the control tower, and set the autopilot for the first thing that comes up on the list. After we get lost, we can just feel our way around and look at a map! Ooops! What was that big boom? Glad that dog survived. Just goes to show they're smarter than humans lol. I mean seriously the conversation sounded like something from The Three Stooges!! I understand about the language barrier, but the captain shouldn't have been so cocky as to clear the flight program. Sorry for my rant. Great video as usual.
Genda Minoru (3 months ago)
Not sure why I never knew about this incident until just now.  Discipline issues aside, this was as simple as not pressing in the rest of the waypoint ID rather than being lazy and just entering "R"  Then distraction led to a point where they couldn't even understand why the VOR wasn't coming in.  My first thought was CFIT and the mountain was blocking the radial signal.  But I am surprised they neglected the STAR which they even previously acknowledged as coming off TULUA before passing ROZO which seems like the IAF as described.  And the captain who had been there many times before understands the terrain around Cali.  When we fly, we always like to fiddle with radio nav aids as well as the FMS to track position and as back up in case of failure and it keeps us busy [or geeky]  This is very surprising and sad indeed.
WickedWordzz (3 months ago)
Cause no 1 should have been the airport not having a radar for 3 YEARS!! What the hell is that?!? And cause number 5 should have been the ATC not giving the correct information. Its one thing if they were flying in daylight, but they're flying at night with no one to double check their movements in case of a problem. Easy to blame the flight crew all the way, but miscommunication and no radar??? Come on now!!

Thank you Sir for another amazing video! I'm curious though; in several your videos, the flight crew seem to find it necessary to erase waypoints in their navigation computer often either before these waypoints have been passed or when a change in their flight plan has occurred. Then they find out they really do need the way point after all, and cannot require it. Usually resulting in disaster. Despite the obvious prior experience of this flight crew, they managed to screw up their approach completely. Make your flight plan and then fly your plan. This crew for want of a few minutes changed their plan, got disoriented, wandered off course, and flew themselves into a mountain. I've traveled to Cali in my youth, and in the foothills of the Andes; there are mountains all over the place.

You cannot blame the controller. "Rozo One" is obviously an arrival procedure, not a VOR. No VOR has the word "one" after it. Only procedures, SIDS and STARS etc have a number after them, if any. The controller repeatedly asked the crew to confirm passing the Rozo and Tulua VORs. The whole point of this arrival is that those two VORS must be overflown in sequence otherwise the heading will not avoid the terrain. The crew must have known about the terrain dangers hours before when planning the flight. They had charts on board clearly showing the importance of correct vertical navigation. When you enter "R" into the FMC that is not adequate. You need to carry on spelling that word and it would have appeared in the FMC. The crew should have realised the obvious fact that approaching Rozo VOR from any old direction is NOT the same as arriving to it on a vector from Tulua. This flight was an example of terrible flight planning, flagrant disregard for proper navigation and denial after a massive F*** up. The correct procedure is to climb back up to a guaranteed safe altitude and start the approach again, or divert. It also demonstrates that it doesn't matter how many thousands of hours you have. You only need to screw up like this once.

Oh wow! - You can't disregard waypoints... or am I wrong?
LAWRENCE S HELM (4 months ago)
It's such basic airmanship to identify the station. Had the pilot listened to the identifier after selecting Rozo, all would have been well. Great video. I'm presently a student pilot and your videos are a great help.

Yeah, right. The Colombians conveniently forgot to mention that the whole thing was exacerbated by a POS inadequate airport that they chose to continue operating in spite of the risks. What major airport doesn't have a radar for chrissakes???

Stefan van Loon (4 months ago)
Why didn't the flight crew just tell ATC what their perception was? The controller cleared them until CLO VOR, but the pilots thought they had to proceed direct CLO VOR, skipping TULUA and ROZO. That's where the mess started.

"Highly experienced" is exactly the problem. Because it means "careless, not concentrated, self impressed". Read the book "the logic of failure" to understand why things like this happen. And so called professionals make the most stupid mistakes.

Maybe if Cali had their radar up and working none of this would have happened. Don't you think? There are no "landmarks" in the sky to guide the pilot. The controller gives the pilot a command, not a vector, but a command and he expects the pilots to find their way. Once the waypoints were taken out of the FMS, all was lost because the controllers could not give proper guidance using proper English.

The air traffic controller told the pilots 5 times to report from Tulua. What is so hard in understanding that? Pilot ignored him and deleted the navigation that is designed to help. You can't blame language on this one

surely once they realised they had messed up the waypoint, it's a time communicate to ATC you have gone of course, get to a safe altitude above all terrain and then get yourself to Tulua and start again, especially at night time with no visual references
