Air France Airbus A330-203 F-GZCP (msn 660) DXB (Paul Denton) (tragically crashed June 1, 2009)
Image: 903038. Caption: Air France flight AF 447 was a scheduled commercial flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris (CDG). Tragically the flight crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on June 1, 2009, killing all 216 passengers and 12 crew members. The aircraft, this Airbus A330-203 registered as F-GZCP (msn 660), took off on May 31, 2009 at 19:03 local time (22:03 UTC) from Rio de Janeiro. The last contact from the crew was a routine message to Brazilian air traffic controllers at 01:33 UTC on June 1, 2009, as the aircraft approached the edge of Brazilian radar surveillance over the Atlantic Ocean, en route to Senegalese-controlled airspace off the coast of West Africa. Forty minutes later, a four-minute-long series of automatic radio messages was received from the airliner, stating numerous problems and warnings. The aircraft was believed to have been lost shortly after it sent the automated messages. On June 6, 2009, a search and rescue operation recovered two bodies and debris from the aircraft floating in the ocean 680 miles (1,090 km) northeast of the Fernando de Noronha islands off Brazil's northern coast. The debris included a briefcase containing an airline ticket, later confirmed to have been issued for the flight. On June 27, 2009 the search for bodies and debris was called off. A total of 51 bodies were recovered. The investigation into the accident was severely hampered by the lack of any eyewitness accounts and radar tracks, as well as the airplane's flight data recorders, which have not been recovered from the ocean floor. The search for the devices was cancelled on August 20, 2009, but the Bureau d'Enquetes et d'Analyses pour la Securite de l'Aviation Civile (BEA) later announced that it would resume the search later in 2009. The search continued through May 2010, and on May 6, 2010 it was reported that the location of the flight data recorders had been pinpointed to a smaller area. The accident was the deadliest in the history of Air France. On January 25, 2011 the accident report was issued. The eight-member panel of external experts, including former U.S. airline and Federal Aviation Administration officials, recommended 35 actions which Air France said "will be implemented rapidly". On April 4, 2011 French officials announced that the bulk of the wreckage was found deep in the Atlantic Ocean with the bodies still aboard the aircraft. Only 50 bodies and scattered debris had previously been recovered on the surface after the crash. The remains will be brought to the surface. On May 27, 2011, the BEA released its preliminary report after reviewing the recovered flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder. Here is a summary of the now official events, according to the BEA: At 3 hour 55 minutes absolute time, the captain woke the second pilot and said: "[...] he's going to take my place". After having attended the briefing between the two co-pilots, the captain left the cockpit to rest at 4 hours 1 minute 46 seconds. At 4 hours 6 minutes absolute time, the pilot warned the cabin crew that they were about to enter an area of turbulence. 4 minutes later, the pilots turned the plane slightly to the left and decreased its speed to 0.8 Mach due to increased turbulence. At 4 hours 10 minutes and 5 seconds absolute time, the autopilot and the auto-thrust systems disengaged. The pilot made a left nose-up input, as the plane began rolling to the right. The plane's stall warning sounded twice. 10 seconds later, the plane's recorded airspeed dropped sharply from 275 knots to 60 knots. The plane's angle of attack increased, and the plane started to climb. The left-side instruments then recorded a sharp rise in airspeed to 215 knots. This change was not displayed by the Integrated Standby Instrument System until a minute later (the right-side instruments were not recorded). The pilot continued making nose-up inputs, and at around 4 hours 11 minutes into the flight, the plane had climbed to its maximum altitude of around 38,000 feet. There, its angle of attack was 16 degrees. At 4 hours 11 minutes 40 seconds, the captain re-entered the cockpit. The angle of attack had then reached 40 degrees, and the plane had descended to 35,000 feet. The stall warnings stopped, as all airspeed indications were now considered invalid due to the high angle of attack. Roughly 20 seconds later, the pilot decreased the plane's pitch slightly, air speed indications became valid and the stall warning sounded again. From there until the end of the flight, the angle of attack never dropped below 35 degrees. During the last minutes, the thrust levers were in the IDLE detent position. The recordings stopped at 4 hours 14 minutes and 28 seconds absolute time. At that point, the plane's ground speed was 107 knots, and it was descending at 10,912 feet per minute. During its descent the plane had turned more than 180 degrees to the right to a compass heading of 270 degrees. The plane was stalled during its
A-List Membership Has Its Rewards
I was joking around with friends and family that the A-List from Southwest doesn't really mean anything. I joked that there was no first class, no upgrades, and they didn't even allow you to fly standby (like most airlines). About the only thing you get as an A- List member is occassional priority screening and ticketing lines and . . . they check you in to your flight early putting you in as the top 15 - 30 people to board the plane. My last two flights I didn't take much advantage of that priviledge. I sat in the back of the plane per normal situation for me, but this time--as I fly on Sept 11th--I chose the emergency exit row. Why? I figured, frankly, I'd help my fellow man on such a date as today. Now that I'm sitting here though, typing away on my iPhone to create this blog post, I'm enjoying crazy long leg room. That's not too big of a deal seeing that I'm only 5'9" (well 5'10" if I stand up real straight, usually only when I'm on a date with a tall woman or one in some massive heels). However the room for my laptop...now that is freaking awesome as hell and well worth the 32 oneway flights needed to gain such prestigious recognition as a Southwest Airlines A-List member. No need to scrunch your elbows around trying to get to the mouse pad (or whatever it's called). My screen isn't jammed up under the spinnie tray holder dealie bob either so there's no reason to be freaked out that the dude in front of me may get a sudden urge to press that button in his arm chair and crush my screen to smitherings. Life is good...A-List is good. Thanks @SouthwestAir you keep my expectations low and over-deliver everytime! Wait...free pretzels coming by...ooops...false alarm it was just the honey roasted peanuts. ;-) P.S. Sometimes it's just easier to blog on an iPhone.
