Can you imagine the panic if all the pax were watching a tail cam of their flight and something went wrong, like tyre burst or engine fire and they could see sparks or smoke!!

A few years ago, a Boeing engineer who worked on the 737 told me the biggest danger these personal electronic devices pose is that if turbulence is hit, they might go flying and injure someone.

I recently flew on an Air France 777-300ER which I believe had a nose camera but it was really out of focus so it wasn't that great to watch.

Quoting Gigneil (Reply 23):
People on board AA191 watched the ground approaching at a high velocity right before they died courtesy of a similar camera.

Interesting that as soon as the gear is raised you can hear the cabin chime.
And there is another post going on right now about that same topic.
|Quoting D L X (Reply 51):
IIRC, AA179 had a nose camera, and many passengers were probably watching the video of the ground approaching them. I can only imagine just how horrific that scene must have been.
|Quoting AA777223 (Reply 56):|
I fly AA fairly frequently and have flown on every aircraft type in their current fleet. Even back in the days of the 727, DC-10, Fokker 100, etc., I have never been on an AA aircraft with an external camera.
|Quoting AA777223 (Reply 56):|
I don't believe AA has this feature on their DC-10s, or any of their aircraft for that matter. I'm sorry, but I don't think that is an accurate statement.
|Quoting PennStation (Reply 58):|
Many (most?/all?) AA DC10's had a camera mounted behind glass at the back of the cockpit. This was shown on the big movie screens on the bulkheads. Mostly, you saw the two pilots (or was it just the captain's shoulder?), but there was a so-so view out the windscreen.
|Quoting D L X (Reply 57):|
I'm sorry, I got the flight number wrong. I'm talking about the 1979 crash in Chicago. I think it was AA191.
