Somehow related, famous Spantax once tried to Ferry a CV990 from STO to ZRH with only 3 engines. Unfortunately that flight crashed on take off.
That's just teasing everybody.
On the basis that hardly anyone here can even remember Spantax, how about some bullet-points to help us out?
1) It took off with three crew, plus seven passengers (!)
2) The crash was NOT attributed directly to the missing engine.
3) The remaining three engines did not fail, although one was throttled back slightly to reduce yawing on take-off.
4) Atmospheric conditions were far from ideal. Strong winds, wind shear, extreme temperature inversion ( -27 °C )
5a) Unexpected early loss of external visual reference after take-off and loss of directional control during transition from visual to instrument flying.
Then there is the aftermath of the crash.
Although the crash site was only 1800 metres from the runway, Swedish emergency services took four hours
to reach the plane.
The statistics state that 5 died/ 5 survived. Reading between the lines, some of those that died could have lost their lives due to frostbite!
I promised myself I'd leave before the party turned ugly. I would quit at 1000 !
Here I am stuck at 994; each time I'm tempted to post, I find myself wondering who will even read it / what is the point?
Or maybe I've just got nothing left to say.
