Aeroperu 604 flight, 1996, took off with its static ports taped. As a result, altitude and speed were not known by the pilot. The flight ended dishing into the Pacific Ocean, all aboard killed.
In the transcript (very interesting):
at 00:59:55, the copilot asks for another aircraft to guide them back to Lima (it was at night, over the ocean, with no visual references). Then the captain rejected the idea (why?).
My question is: if a 707 (as offered by Lima ATC) was sent to the rescue, would it work? Is it possible for a, let's say, 707 pilot guide a 757 safely back to ground, I mean, a big plane guiding another big one?
Did it happend any time?
