Quoting JohnKrist (Reply 37):
the tires burst due to the braking, right?

From the other thread which was deleted, someone with far more knowledge than myself referred to the tires going flat due to the excessive heat caused by the braking action. There is some sort of valve that releases pressure because of heat. Basically, the tires deflate as a safety mechanism due to the hot brakes.

Obviously I cannot recall the specifics, but if my memory serves me correct, that was the reason behind why the tires deflated.

Our creep meant that when there was a person sitting in the seat left to him (the F seat, assuming AB CDE FG numbering in this 767) he would have crushed/squeezed his or her hand during all the stress this freaking event unleashed in him. Glad he wasn't the pilot

Ah, well that certainly inspires much confidence in our little aviation brat, now doesn't it? What a little freak.

While incredibly dodgy I think it's interesting to actually see what the crew say and do when a takeoff is aborted.

I myself have been on an aborted takeoff. I admit it was no fun, but I dont think it made me think of flying any different. The captain never told us what had happend, just "Technical Difficulties".

Agreed.

Well I guess the guy is an ass, and complete moron. But except from the commentary, and the first bit of film, I found it quit good.

Dang, that's what I was going to write!!

This guy reminded me of Rainman more than anything else..."We're all going to die...yeah...definitely going to die..."

Personally, someone should tell him he has used up 14 minutes and 59 seconds of his fame, and the clock is ticking...

What exactly caused the aborted takeoff?

By the way, he called the speed brakes flaps.

A few things:-

i.) As said before, "entering the runway at the Outer Marker"  banghead 

ii.) "We're at V1" - How does he know? V1 varies for each flight depending on weight, pressure etc. So how does he know this and even if he did, how does he know the speed of the aircraft at "rejection".

iii.) If he's a "airline brat" and implies he just as knowledgeable as a pilot from his time sitting in Y class (wish it was that easy!), he deduces it's a "techical fault". That really does narrow down the options as to what it could have been!

Quoting JakTrax (Reply 41):
I'm amazed that the aircraft taxied back to the gate with blown tires (4 at least according to the video) - is this normal practice?

It's doubtful that it did, as a fully-laden aircraft doesn't roll particularly well on flat tires. Notice also that I said flat tires, as I doubt they're "blown" but are just deflated.

After a high-energy stop, the brakes and wheels get hot, and it can take a few minutes for the heat to translate to the wheels themselves (which are what the tires are obviously mounted on). Depending on the assorted variables (speed at which abort initiated, aircraft weight, runway slope, surface winds, etc.) that determine how much brake energy (measured in millions of ft.-lbs.) and thus heat is involved, the fuse plugs in the wheels may, or may not, melt, thus deflating the tires thus preventing a "blowout". This can sometimes take 20-30 minutes (or longer) to occur, and it would appear that they were able to get back on a gate before it happened. The first shot of the fireman on the ground appearing to take a picture wasn't doing so--he was using an IR device to get the brake temperature from a safe distance.

As for the tape, the guy is a Cliff Claven-ish doofus, and there are so many gaffes and lapses in his understanding of things that I hardly would know where to begin, other than to say that he's real drama queen....  Yeah sure

He looks more normal than I thought he would, even though he still sounds really dark. Reminds me of a video I saw on 20/20 once of an arsenist video they had found of a burning house, in which the arsenist narrated and prayed to satan and had all these weird little demonic voices. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Missed the first thread, so this is the first time I see this video, very interesting, thanks for sharing.

As for the commentary... well, the guy is my new hero, did he really presented the video to the captain? Lol! Big grin
