Modern aircraft like the Airbus rely almost exclusively on fly by wire (FBW) control systems to keep them in the air, and to take off and land safely. FBW uses motors and actuators to control the flaps, rudder, engine thrust and so on via wires or fibre optics, a process managed on the Airbus by mul...Jump to post
Quoting Matt Macmaster: I have ten years experience flying airliners both conventional and fly by wire. I am currently an Airbus A320 pilot. Flying is a technically complex issue so I understand a layman may find it difficult to get it all correct in such a report. There is no difference between fly...Jump to post

Which brings us back to SQ006. I have not had time to read the 530 pages of the accident report but the airport had only three RWYs and they still got it wrong.

Is there anything in your expert MD11 opinion that the flight crew of SR111 could have landed in the nick of time?
