Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

I just remembered a 1000 foot drop in altitude (according to the pilot) on a CO 747 I was in on approach to IAH in Summer 1994.. Everything loose, including the flight attendants, hit the ceiling. All of the passengers that I could see were belted, as I recall. To this day, that was the only time d...

Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

If it was caused but auto pilot disengaging then they should have maintained control. Unless one of the flight control cables broke. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk Knowing nothing about how the flight cables are set up, I wonder if it's possible that a broken cable could result in a wings-lev...

Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

Could it have been an improper input in response to wake turbulence like AA 587? Was there anything really heavy like a 748 or A380 in front of them? A380 wake turbulence once flipped a business jet upside down and into a spiral. Luckily the crew were able to get out of it and land safely. But not ...

Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

I have read all these different theories for this crash, yet the first thing that came to my mind is crew disorientation, especially if they flew into a storm or cloud. Happened many times unfortunately, ET409, FZ981, Armavia 967 and KE8509 come to mind, just to name a few. Could also explain the a...

Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but could the NTSB stop Atlas Air from temporary flying their 767s until the cause of this crash is figured out? No reason to right now since so far they dont know if it's a issue that will affect all 767's. They use older second hand 767's so if it was a str...

Re: Why hasn’t plane design changed much?

Because this design has worked best. They will use it till they find a better way to design planes.
