NW 757 Getting Tossed In The Wind Like A Kite

Fri Dec 15, 2006 5:36 am

I know that the narration is annoying, but I had to share because this would definately wake me up. Some of you try to act hard core when it comes to not being afraid during flying situations. Many of you act like any irregular operation is "no big deal". But I bet you'd grab you arm rest if the wind tossed you around like it does this aircraft. Enjoy. Go here for the link... NW 757 landing at SEA...

When you have been in the industry a while and weathered (pardon the pun) many irregular operations, it does become "no big deal". If this is your first time, then it is a "big deal". Everything is relative to the person involved.

I am not hard core, but it takes A LOT to phase me, honestly, that landing would not have. It would, however, be something to talk about.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing. Ask any pilot.

Someone already posted a link to that video (same clip, different news broadcast) here:

The two other links in that thread are more hairy than this one, in my opinion.

I was on a UK internal flight from Stansted to Blackpool and we had a very strong runway crosswind at BLK, the pilot aborted for a go around.

Landed OK on second approach.

Alright tough guy... I don't care who you are, that was definitely something to be concerned about... From the looks of it, as he's climbing away, the right gear is jiggling, seeming that it touched down. Regardless, that pilot earned his full pay that flight!

I experienced a landing like this at SCQ back in August 2004 in an Air Europa 737-800. Extremely high winds, low clouds, and heavy rain was more or less the cause. The 737-800 came right to the end of the runway but we were blown all over the place on approach and on touchdown right down till the end of the runway.

We even made it to the news as well!  Wink

Sometimes you have to take a persons background in to account when dealing with situations. I have been a flight attendant for as long as you have been alive (Damn!, I am 42. Am I old that old, already?). I have had more than my share of rough landings. You get used to it. Really. Was it a wild ride, yes. Concerned, no. But again:

I dont care how long you have been a flight attendant. A landing like that IS something to be concerned about. If it was bad enough that the pilot coudn't safely land the plane and had to go around it was probably something YOU should have been concerned about. I hope you were doing your silent review. It amazes me how some f/a's become so complacent. Scared, maybe not. Concerned, you should have been. Just my .02

Like some of the statements above, the crew did a good job. Ive had some wild flights and landings myself. Not trying to act jaded, but Im sure I would have grabbed the armrest on that one myself. However when you're in a jumpseat the perspective is a bit different than when your a pax. But yes it definately gives you something to talk about when the trip is over.

Those pilots earned their check with that landing. It appears that they were close to losing that plane? I could be wrong but my guess is they would have lost the machine if they did not power back up and go around.

I flew into Seattle that very morning from Anchorage at about 6:10 am. The captain had informed us that there was windshear, but he did not specify low level windshear. As we were about 600 feet from touchdown, the plane dropped, everyone started screaming. I thought I was going to die. The pilot continued the approach while the plane was rocking back and forth. I remember thinking gosh, he can't possibly land right now as we were about 100 feet from touchdown. He finally landed and the whole cabin started clapping. Our turbulence was way worse than that 757, we were in a 737-800.

I worked a flight into SEA Monday afternoon and it was a ROUGH one. The captain mentioned that landing conditions were borderline, and that we were close to going around. I thought we were going to go around as I was getting jolted around in the back pretty good. We encountered some moderate turbulence on departure Tuesday morning. It seems like flying conditions in SEA haven't improved much.

Fly safe!

I was a flight attendant right up until a year ago. But I too, have had my share of rough landings. As far as the go-around... looks like to me that the nasty stuff was not until the last couple of hundred feet. Hard to know just what you can expect until you get to that point. You can get reports all day long, but the wind can, and does change. It's just hard to say. I think he did a great job and even the second approach was dicy. Full throttle power ups are not a big deal... the curiosity is there until he can get back in the pattern and talk to the cabin. From the inside that is all you see and hear, but you have one of two reasons for an abort that close... wind like in this case, or a previous landing has not left the runway quick enough. It happens a lot more than you hear about.

So true, ive seen some great footage from a fellow spotter of Saabs and Beech 1900d's getting thrashed around as well as the 737 in and out of Wellington, its incredible what the pilots get used to.

What are you talking about??? That was anything but a good landing! First off, the approach wasn't stabilized. Second, it looks like they never put any cross-control in to counter the wind ... hence, they never stopped the drift when they touched down.

I'm sorry, in my opinion, as a pilot, this was a very unsafe approach and landing.

That sounds so scary. Even the most battle tested FA might lose their cool at 600ft.... very bad.

Worst turbulence i have experienced (somewhere over Delaware at FL110 on a stormy, bumpy night) the A319 plunged maybe 150 feet... Pilots were announcing, then boom, this turbulence, screams in back, and the pilots weren't heard from for 20 minutes... they were busy flying...  Smile

Every FA probably has a scary story. This was just a routine challenge for a good FA or deck crew.

The person in question is not a FA, though for him, his flight was scary nonetheless. Maybe overreacted, but scary, still.

Sorry to get people jumping on you about "I don't care how long you've been a flight attendent" and all. I was not reffering to you when I said "I fon'y care who you are..." I just meant that in an all-encompassing sense.

Wind shear is nothing to fool around with, which is what seems to have struck that 757. I once landed a Cessna 172 in higher-than-approved x-winds a la 28kts gusting to 36 and that was one of the scariest experiences in my short flying career thus-far, but I didn't realize it until after the fact.

As far as the crew is concerned, (besides a little seat-pucker) they probably weren't too concerned until after they landed because they had a job to do and were focused on getting that job DONE. EWR... I'm glad you have a good sense of trust in your pilots, thats absolutely necessary and a big help to them. I know I'd have a problem with giving my life into someone's hands EVERY DAY. Hence why I am a pilot, usually I'll have some control over my destiny.

It is a sense of trust that crosses back and forth between cockpit and cabin crews. Until I sit in the pilots seats, I have no choice but to trust them to make the best judgement. It is an essential part of crew resources.

Thank you for your feedback, Jeff, I do appreciate it.

What are you talking about??? That was anything but a good landing! First off, the approach wasn't stabilized. Second, it looks like they never put any cross-control in to counter the wind ... hence, they never stopped the drift when they touched down.

Oh dear - here we go - another armchair critic. What you didn't see from your chair in front of your computer is everything that occurred prior to that approach into LGA. I wasn't there either, but I bet the pilots were considering other traffic, ATC instructions in congested airspace, the departing flight off the same runway (hence the wide arced approach) and any other combination of factors. Considering the obvious direct crosswind (watch the rubber tire smoke), they did a good job of landing damn close to centreline with the airplane tracking straight down the middle. Don't sling arrows until you try the same thing under the same conditions.
The nice thing about a mistake is the pleasure it gives others.

When you have been in the industry a while and weathered (pardon the pun) many irregular operations, it does become "no big deal". If this is your first time, then it is a "big deal". Everything is relative to the person involved.

I am not hard core, but it takes A LOT to phase me, honestly, that landing would not have.

Oh, you are so butch EWR, would you protect me next time? lol

Being 'no big deal' doesn't make me butch. Just expectant of the unexpected.
