APG 165 – Augmented Crew

For the first time ever on APG, an “augmented crew!” I was joined by fellow pilots Miami Rick and Dr. Steph.

Several iPad Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) at American had a problem with a crashing app. Was anyone in danger? Well, if you’re the clueless media, YES! Not the media? Well then, no.

For an inexplicable reason, a Turkish A320 dipped its wing right before touchdown, resulting in the right engine, pylon, and wingtip contacting the runway. After a successful go-around, the jet returned for an eventful landing. Check it out.
