Re: Could TK 981 have been saved like UAL 232

OO-DLL was hit by a SAM climbing through 8.000 ft. It caused the loss of all hydraulics and set the outboard wing on fire. That crew didn't just manage to regain control, bring the aircraft around and perform an approach. Finding themselves drifting away from the runway, they performed a go-around,...

Re: Could TK 981 have been saved like UAL 232

I was referring to TK981 in that statement; the aircraft had three running engines, albeit the #2 engine was at or near idle thrust due to a throttle linkage being damaged. UAL232 had two operable engines - the #2 engine on UA232 failed due to a manufacturing defect in a fan disk. These accidents a...

Re: CF6-50 vs CF6-80

There are really four versions in there, the 50, 80A, 80C2, and 80E. In a nutshell, here's an overview: 50: baseline 80A: compact layout version 80C2: new core and bigger fan 80E: similar architecture to 80C2 with some other tweaks (this helped them be first to market, but cost them later on agains...

Re: Could TK 981 have been saved like UAL 232

Interesting question. There are many differences between the two accidents. Short answer: No, the aircraft could not have been saved utilizing the throttles. The control surfaces on the tail were frozen due to a loss of hydraulic fluid and those control surfaces were frozen at a different angle of ...

CF6-50 vs CF6-80

What are the differences between both CF6 variants? The only thing Ive noticed how the later -80 series lacks that idling sound which to me sounds like "whine", and it seems to be much quieter?

Could TK 981 have been saved like UAL 232

Ive read up about how Turkish Airlines flight 981 crashed because of the cargo door falling and causing hydraulic loss, and that the DC-10 managed to pitch up somewhat in its final moments, but was too low to recover. Had the pilots tried to use the throttles like UAL 232 earlier, could they have ha...
