APG 143 – Wind Shear, Go-Arounds, Reduced Thrust Takeoffs
Play

A Grand Prairie, Alberta woman is lucky she didn’t lose her head… literally. She was a passenger on a Jazz Dash 8-400 that diverted to Edmonton because of a tire failure. Upon landing, the tire came apart, the right main gear collapsed, and all of the propeller blades separated, including one that found its way into the passenger cabin, narrowly missing Christina Kurylo’s head. This could have been so much worse.

A couple of other crashes are discussed, including a Learjet that crashed in Freeport, killing all nine aboard, and an update on the Virgin Galactic SpaceShip Two crash.

Lots of great feedback again, including discussions about wind shear, go-arounds, reduced thrust takeoffs, and more!
