Normally I would watch the Smithsonian channel when an Air crash investigation show was on but now I go to The FlightChannel, why, because it's just as detailed if not more with NO commercials and explains in depth exactly where it happened, why it happened and the results and changes made after the investigations and all of this in less than half the time but leaves nothing out. The Aircraft is shown with the right name, the right Aircraft, the correct weather before the incident, during and after. Thank you FlightChannel for your commitment to produce quality and informative video's and as always I want to thank you mostly for your hard work and for sharing these videos. The great thing about all of this is I can watch youtube on my 50" big screen TV and I do and in surround sound which just adds a little more to enjoyment of your video's, thank you again.👍 👍 👍 👍 👍

ladykiri42 if you’ve watched some of their previous/earlier videos the end would say something like Rest In Peace to the victims or passengers of flight so and so. But if you google said flight, on certain videos it would say, there were 10 survivors or 20 survivors. It’s happened a few times

Someone was not navigating. I carry a map when driving. I do not drive in to the ocean and expect to survive. Similarly, one can't fly into a mountain and expect to survive. Its a good idea to keep miles from a mountain, either up or down, when flying. If that is not possible, don't go. Or consider another means of transport.

They went over there just so others could learn from this and the sightseeing trips got cancelled 🤦‍♂️

I think, as a Monday morning quarterback, I would have used my onboard radar in the map mode to know exactly where I was in relationship to the volcano. But that's just me.

The reason they crashed was because they decided to go lower to give passengers a better photo to take they should have been at 6000ft but they decided to go to 1500ft.

This is the most stupid accident you can imagine! A commercial flight that descents to 1.500 feet over Antarctica just so the passengers can see some ice-shelfs is the most idiot thing i ever heard of. If i book a flight i want to be transported from A to B in the safest possible fashion.What the hell was this captain thinking? WTF!! Sightseeing? In those conditions???

patrick piel (16 days ago)
i would agree with this judges decision. but, i also think it is extremely dangerous to be flying a jetliner that close to the ground in a white out situation. if not foolish especially when a commentator tells the pilot he cant see a thing and the pilot continues to trust he is flying correctly! my first impression is if you dont know what are were you are flying thru. go up! get out of there immediately. fly to clear view! orientate! i place blame on a mistake and a take a chance decision by this crew with the lives of 250 humans on board.

If anyones interested in the truth, read a book called "Impact Erebus".It is written by Gordon Vette. He was an Air New Zealand check captain and put his career on the line to prove the crew were not at fault.

An impressive channel - this was in indeed a sad event for both families of deceased and the airline . I like the way the events are described with flight video . Feels like you are part of the flight . But damn hate the crashing parts - my heart ponds faster towards the end . Great work and keep making such awesome videos . Please make one on the Fokkar friendship crash of the Nigerian Airways back in the 80 I think . I was a kid when I got the news of this crash . It always fascinated me how a flying machine , safe to fly could crash just like that . But as i grew older made more sense due to external and internal factors beyond our control sometimes . Still the safest means to travel today .

downallyourstreets (20 days ago)
Pilots fly at night with no visibility, no horizons, they don't crash into mountains. Also the crew should know where they are using mapping and instruments, they should have known they were flying towards a 12,000 mountain vs. over a large body of water with navigation alone. They should not have been asking a tour guide to guide THEM. Never been to Anarctica? Fine, study a freakin map before you go, make a plan. That "sector whiteout" excuse is bullshit and if my family was aboard it would be an unacceptable excuse. Total pilot error and general arrogance killed that plane.

GroomLeader (1 month ago)
That was the worst idea ever hatched by an airline company. A sightseeing tour over one of the remotest parts of the planet. Nothing to see but a whole lot of ice and snow, and any possible landing places in case of an emergency, thousands of miles away. I don't know why this crazy idea was ever even thought of, let alone marketed. Then, they change the flight plan programmed, and don't tell the crew? Add in the collusion of lies and cover up orchestrated by these criminals, trying to dump the blame on the flight crew. They should have been sued right out of business. Don't know how many got canned, but the entire rotten corps should have been thrown out.

I was living in the UK at the time and heard the awful news about this tragedy......a week later I received a letter from a friend in NZ , that had been mailed before the flight , telling me he’d paid to send his parents on this flight. My pain was horrible but small compared to the unimaginable grief that swept New Zealand, a country that is so physically beautiful and filled with friendly people .... this was indeed a tragedy on so many levels......thanks for the wonderfully informative recreation, which (sorry to say) I was reluctant to watch .

An Orchestrated Litany of Lies is what Judge Peter. M said towards Air New Zealand in his report from the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Erebus Disaster. The then National Government under Sir Robert Muldoon were of no help either. Air NZ only apologised recently for the disaster with a memorial at Auckland International Airport and I believe now Parnell Rose Gardens. The disaster is still a very sore point for New Zealand after what Air NZ pulled

Chris Davies (1 month ago)
Almost everyone in NZ, knew someone who was affected. Because the plane was mostly filled with Kiwis. A national tragedy, and so completely avoidable. Sadly, the radio operator had many chances to save them, by simply interpreting his failure to communicate by short wave, as a result of there being something large and solid between the plane and the receiver. A terrible terrible thing for the entire country, and the poor police officers who had to bag and tag all the human remains, and all the personal items spread across the site. Theirs must have been one of the very worst jobs any people have ever undertaken, and at least one of them nearly cracked.

A disaster caused by incompetent so called professionals. Air New Zealand's cover up was a disgraceful act of betrayal against the Crew and passengers that died . It was your fault and you tried to falsely accuse innocent Pilots of the disaster, shame on you all that were involved with this cover up, all of you should have been jailed in a court of law for your stupid incompetence.

one of the more disturbing facts of this crash is there was a roll of of film from one of the passengers that survived that showed shots out the window showing a clear and blue sky, as well as a picture supposedly seconds before impact with fluid streaking across the window
Mrfairchap (1 month ago)
Sorry, but this crash was ultimately the fault of the captain. Even if he was unaware of the change to the computer programme, it was the height of folly to descend to 1500 feet in whiteout/cloudy conditions, especially when he was unsure of the terrain below (neither pilot had ever flown to Antarctica before). As every pilot knows, when it comes to matters of safety the captain of an aircraft always makes the final decision about his/her flight profile.
Allen Tac (1 day ago)
Reading all the comments, the whiteout mentioned in the video is not the traditional whiteout caused by snow., but by the sun in the Arctic regions. Comments indicate the conditions were clear.
cellgrrl (1 month ago)
I am no expert on these matters, but I just want to make an observation. As someone who has traveled to Antarctica, I felt it was foolish to send an inexperienced (of Antarctica) crew for this flight. As experienced as the crew was, Antarctica is not a place to go without prior knowledge of its ways, even in the air. I was on a huge cruise ship that had to make a very sudden 180 on a dime due to rapidly changing wind conditions. Later talking to the ship Captain, I learned we were in an extremely dangerous situation. This can happen at any time due to a multitude of reasons when down in Antarctica as things change so rapidly. I think the sinking of a huge cruise ship with 3.000 passengers in the Antarctic Peninsula would have been a bigger story. Thank goodness it didn't happen.

SueDunMc - 5019 (1 month ago)
If we have to read it then I would prefer no sound ( oops! No commercials? Better change that I'm watching one right now!) all the background noise is very distracting. I know I used to watch these a while ago but there used to be a running commentary, which was quite interesting but now it's changed, maybe so you can afford to run it with no ads, but we've found that's incorrect. If I have to read it instead I would rather it be a different print this one is too large it makes all the words run into each other making it hard to see. However, I am going to unsubscribe, this is too much hassle. I notice that some people have really praised them but they have come on a bit too strong making me think maybe you are all related? Or at least good friends. Some soap opera videos have taken to not only printing the words but having a robot voice read it as well. Awful, its amazing what some people do to save a buck...lol. So please don't go that route. 🙏🏻
Michelle Evans (1 month ago)
Maybe it is discussed elsewhere in the comments, but I didn't find it offhand and am very curious about the US Navy at McMurdo in all this. According to your video, they told the DC-10 flight crew that they would use McMurdo radar to vector them safely over an un-obscured area for the sightseers. How did the Navy not see on their radar that the DC-10 was on track to hit Mt. Erebus?
Michelle Evans (1 month ago)
I understand that the video can only do so much in a short time. I appreciate you raking the time to help clear this up.

+Michelle Evans I'm not sure exactly but maybe, but I can look that up again in Gordon Vette's book. This video leaves out so much.
Michelle Evans (1 month ago)
Thank you for explaining that. It would have been nice to have noted that in the video. Still surprised that McMurdo radar didn't issue some sort of warning, to tell them that they were off the radar because of being blocked by the mountain. Might have made the flight crew consider that they may not have been where they thought they were.

presumably some New Zealanders on the plane here, but if there were Europeans or North Americans aboard, they were mostly rich people wanting to visit these remote regions, simply for vanity. A classic case of this was a story in a magazine I read, about a wealthy NAMBLA pedophile, and his grown up victim wanting to 'do it' on every continent- last booty call, Antarctica - as for others like them, they had been to every country in the world while their slaves toiled in the factory back home at minimum wage......they certainly got a BANG for their buck here >EDIT: looks like I'm getting more love letters from dedicated stalker account cchris874, and her various guises........the poor honey seems butthurt over mention of wealthy pedos, even with all the lurid media stories of Spacey, M.J etc....

How fast can this kind of plane climb on emergency power? Couldn't they have at least tried to pull up real hard sacrificing some speed? In the video it seems they hardly pull up at all, was the mountain very steep?
cchris874 (1 month ago)
It takes a few seconds for the plane to start to climb, and they only had I think, about 5 seconds. Keep in mind also that this accident is far complex than portrayed in this video. The captain probably did not believe the was a real alarm or he would have gunned it. Up until the last few seconds the crew were convinced they had 40 miles of unobstructed sky ahead of them.

Get used to the number of screw ups that will cost many lives as we move forward to a time when a certain generation that don't even know how to sew buttons on a shirt, how to cook or even do MINOR home repairs start getting into positions they should not be in. It will be the millenials in top positions soon and that will spell nothing but disaster for everybody.

+Billie Bob Norton III Sources: "Impact Erebus" by Gordon Vette The Royal Commission report Passenger photos, which show the plane flying in clear air up to the very last second. This video is unfortunately not very well done. It doesn't describe whiteout correctly. It incorrectly shows snow falling. It incorrectly states the plane was flying in cloud. The Royal Commission report is the primary source for most of the facts I mention. Yes, there may be room for some disagreement, but it's pretty well established, I think.

A fairly basic report on the circumstances is covered in Air New Zealand Flight 901, Wikipedia. It covers these items.

cchris and you know these "facts"(?) how????
cchris874 (2 months ago)
+ALA ALAROY Absolutely. Any professional pilot would never dare ignore a warning even if he thought it was a false alarm. Had he really thought it was real, or had seen the mountain ahead of him, he would have gunned it, and the FDR shows that he did not. This video is very defective. It shows snow , but there was never any snow anywhere in or around the plane. It was in clear air throughout, and the crew were fooled by a visual illusion no where mentioned in this video. It was only in the last few seconds they were having trouble maintaining this illusion, as the false horizon line ahead of them began to disappear as they entered complete whiteout. This form of white out happens in clear air.

I really hoped that there will be little information about aftermath of the crash. As it is Mt.Elbrus in Antarctica all rescue operations were extremly complicated. The wreckage alone had been discovered 24 hours after crash so even if anyone survived they would freeze to death. First rescue party that had arrived spent 1 week on crash site recovering all bodies stucked under the wreckaged sometimes few meters under the snow. While recovering all bodies skua gulls birds started to eat corpses so they had to bury them again under the snow.....

I remember when airplane crashes seemed to happen so frequently in the 60s, 70s & 80s. Several in Dallas & Chicago, New York, LA, Florida. Now it's so rare. I was in a 747 flying from Dallas to Hawaii in the 70s when we lost a engine out over the ocean (very scary noise, lots of water, no land in sight). They kept reassuring us they could fly on 3 or even 2 engines as we diverted to LA. Complimentary cocktails in coach & 1st class of which I took advantage.

cchris874 I'm not afraid to fly but it used to be a pleasure & people were civilized. You dressed up, got dinner & a movie & it was a big deal. Now they treat you like a terrorist, physically manhandle you, no food, pushy rude passengers, it's awful. So I drive anywhere I want to go in this country. You miss so much when you fly over everything. But if you want to go abroad, you gotta deal with it.
cchris874 (2 months ago)
Yes, the changes happen so slowly, and since safety sells fewer papers than crashes, no one notices, and then when one happens, like a single fatality on Southwest, everyone gets nervous. For 1st tier airlines, we are fast approaching the 1/100 million fatality risk per flight, which would have been considered a pipe dream in the 70s.
