Looks like they slammed the plane on the runway "a la southwest"

terrible landing, I don´t even understand why did they try to land in such a bad fog, they are lucky.

In the video 3 you can see some of the crew, some of them are carrying the first aid kits, but some of them have their luggage... that´s something they will have to check, bad for the pax evacuating a plane with carry on... not acceptable for crew at all.

Thanks for sharing! I am sure it will be quite informative not only for investigation purposes, but also to learn and improve from mistakes/errors made by the crew (i.e. not to put direct blame on anybody, but to enhance safety for all involved).

Cheers,

From the moment they entered the hold, then the 1st approach, then went around, then the final landing, took... 1 hour 41 minutes... with at least 20 minutes between go-around and leaving the hold at the end of the missed approach, before recommencing approach (without holding at the 1st holding position)... they have not had enough fuel to divert.

The video 1 only showed about 4 seconds between when the ground is visible and touchdown... and I don't see the runway lights on.

And whole the fire crew doused the right engine, 1 pax at 3:14 in video 3, were smoking while taking pics of the aircraft...

What we don't know is did the captain order an immediate evacuation or just an evacuation because they were "stuck there" with no/little fire risk. But for the crew to have taken their luggage, well, they had to make sure the airplane is empty in a non-life threatening situation, and they could take their time... (but yes, not a good idea to do so then hang around with the pax without their luggage). But looking at the number of pax taking their handcarry, it seems that the crew didn't decide on an immediate evacuation. And this was evident on the 1st video with the cockpit crew not announcing evacuation (but the cockpit master warning alarm was going on in the background), and then the engines were shut down slightly later. By 1 minute and 20 seconds after the aircraft had come to a stop, evacuation hadn't commenced.

But seeing the videos makes me think... "geez... heck of a difference" with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kXUfwXZY4I (Where the cabin crew tried to get pax to get out quickly without taking anything as smell of fuel got inside) So... was TK726 an "urgent evacuation" or not?

Evacuation is always a tricky thing, Cockpit crew have to wait for Captain to order evacuation (unless they suspect the cockpit crew is incapacitated), mainly because after the crash the cabin crew has to perform the On Ground evacuation Checklist, it´s basically securing the plane, Parking brake, Shutting down engines, fuel pumps, emergency lights... then give the command of Evacuate, Evacuate... it should take more or less 1 minute, usually less if done properly.

I said it´s tricky because it create panic, chaos and usually people get scare and some minor injuries occur, so Crew must be sure it is necessary, In this case it is of course.

That´s a bigger mistake than the landing itself if it´s true they didn´t have enough fuel, that bad decision create the rest of the problems, when the plane reaches the minimum diversion fuel or even before, there should be no question, divert, refuel and wait for weather to improve.

One thing i was thinking, every time I do my recurrent training about fire I´m told when fuel (liquids) is a factor they should use foam and not water, otherwise fire (Fuel) spreads with the water, don´t you think they should have used Foam instead of water??

Urgent evacuation? Evidently not! From around 5:10 through 5:20 in the second video (Part 3), you can see what appears to be the cabin crew standing around... most of them with THEIR luggage!

There lies the problem. If you reach minimum diversion fuel, you divert... don't wait for weather to improve.
One issue here could have been the long missed approach procedure and the distance between the missed approach holding end point to the initial approach fix was bigger... so by the time they reached the missed approach holding, they may have missed diversion a bit... (it wouldn't be the first time someone screwed up a rule of thumb mental calculation)... but, this is a hard one to bite...

Looking at the first video, I see the aircraft approaching the runway and all of a sudden it slams the runway but when the person who is filming turns the camera to film the cabin I see people already standing while that camera is still shaking a lot (I assume due to the aircraft not having come to a full stop yet). Because of this it looks like the passengers weren't even aware or told that the aircraft was almost touching down on the runway? Am I seeing this right or what am I missing?

2. emergency commands given only once, not twice
3. no emergency equipment taken from board the a/c by the crew
4. no head count, nor group leading on the ground
5. and worst part, crew collect their own luggage

This crew needs most urgently re-qualify for emergency procedures...

On the video the aircraft touched down at 2:29
Aircraft stopped at about 2:46 to 2:50 No one was seen standing at 2:50
Cockpit crew announcement (most likely remain on station (for the cabin crew) which is "wait/standby while we assess the situatin") at 3:06
Engines shut down at 3:10 whilst cabin crew tells people to (remain seated (?) and) unfasten seatbelt.
3:28 is the first instance in the video showing people standing up.

During the roll between 2:29 and 2:46, there were footage of the cabin with people with their hands up... but not standing.

It also distributes me they are all huddled around each other. They should all be interacting with PAX checking on them.

Over here it's whenever there's fire/smoke (doesn't have to be black smoke), forced water landing, and (a) main landing gear(s) failure, and whenever there's an obvious abnormality and cockpit doesn't answer cabin crew's calls or acknowledge through some other way (varies from company to company).

It differs from country to country, but yes, I agree, deficiencies are obvious for some in this video.

Main gears? Nose gear? or any Gear?

The disturbing part for me here is that in such an abnormal situation and where the cockpit says something other than an evacuation, the verbal commands are just... not stern enough... let alone do it twice.

Have there been past incidents where passengers decided to self evacuate before crew announced it because they were in immediate danger?

And are passengers within their right to self evacuate if they feel there's imminent danger and the crew haven't announced an evacuation?

If they did not reasonably try to raise alarm and initiated evacuation themselves, no, they are not. Over here we've had passengers jumping out of a plane when the engine had a smoky start... and on a runway excursion (a simple overrun with no landing gear collapse and the airplane was intact, no damage), a passenger decided to evacuate by running to the front left exit, when the cabin crew told the passenger to remain seated he punched the purser screaming "murderers", and proceeded to open the door and jumped out. So no... they are NOT within their right to automatically initiate an evacuation if they feel there's imminent danger and the crew haven't announced an evacuation.

You are correct, I mistook those hands for people that were standing and combined with some overhead bins open I thought those were standing passengers but they were hands. I assume those overhead bins opened due to the hard impact of the aircraft on the runway(?)

Not enough fuel to divert; I dont think this is a fact, and I dont think this is correct. I work close to the airline and I am together with TK pilots all the time, but this is the first time I heard of someone saying that they did not have enough fuel to divert. From what I know, they still had fuel to divert if they did go around 2nd time.

There is no explicit law in the U.S. that governs this - but I am not sure about other places. When I was a flight attendant, we trained on being proactive with events like engine torching during start or even compressor stalls followed by aborted takeoffs. Those events have scared passengers and made them think the engine is "on fire" or "exploding". If a passenger opens an overwing exit after torching, it is not a "crime". It is confusion. All the crew can do is get to the impacted area and calm the passengers with information.

Looking at this video, you can see bright lead in lights along the center line, yet the runway itself has no lead in lights.

The question isn't if they had enough fuel to divert if they went around the 2nd time... the question is, would they stil had it after a 1 hour and 40 minutes of holding... Emphasis on the long hold. The last time I heard a TK flight may have gotten cornered into a "commit" was due to a prolonged holding as well (but they diverted safely to a nearer alternate than the one they wanted, and that was after shuffling some airplanes around to allow them to get in)...
Anyway, if true, these rarely happen anyway.

I played the video frame by frame and it appears they didn't even land on the pavement. At the point of touchdown the aircraft is completely off the left side of the runway. All the articles/information I've read said they landed and then exited the runway.

Do you have the final incident report?

Why should they be terminated? Retraining and maybe temporary demotion but terminating? What is the reason you think that should be the consequence?

I wonder how much grass/mud ended up sucked through the engines ... in the video during the 'landing', you can see there's a ton of the stuff being blown all about, both from the offroad transit of the plane, and (presumably) the reversers in operation ...

Right so as someone who used to be cabin crew that video kind of hit me harder than I thought it would.

The cabin crew did the right thing right after the crash landing, ordering the passengers to unfasten their seat belts before the order to evacuate was given from the flight deck. But they didn't manage (or seem to even attempt to) keep the passengers from crowding the aisles or immediately reach for their bags.

What seems most damning to me though is that there's a group of them congregating WITH THEIR BAGS on the taxiway not assisting any passengers. Its one thing for passengers to leave with their bags in a panic, but pretty unforgivable for the crew to do that. How can we expect passengers to do as they are supposed to if the crew don't - look at the crew who oversaw the evac of QF 32 in Singapore - what a contrast. The CSD was the last cabin crew off the plane and not one bag made it off with the pax. And what's worse is that passengers seem to be still evacuating aircraft through the slides while it looks like a significant chunk of the A330 cabin crew compliment already evac'd the aircraft before them (bags and all) and aren't doing anything to assist. That in my eyes as ex-cabin crew is pretty unforgivable. Seems like two of the male cabin crew took the the first aid kits with them which in theory was the right thing to do, but serves no purpose if you're not doing anything with them - there might not have been a need for them, but you wouldn't know that while your passengers are still going down the slides and you're on the taxiway with your colleagues chatting about what just happened and not overseeing the evacuation.

In my humble opinion the video shows more than it intended to - some pretty appalling stuff from that group of TK crew.

in the video during the 'landing', you can see there's a ton of the stuff being blown all about, both from the offroad transit of the plane, and (presumably) the reversers in operation ...

I think most of what you see in the video is from the landing gear digging into the grass/dirt. The video is shot from pretty much just behind the gear.

I'm not sure. It looks like the aircraft is stationary already when we see all the dirt blowing back.

The engines change their tone as well, as if they are chewing up dirt.

I'll second this, TK really sh*t the bed. Does anyone know what happened to the cockpit crew? Hopefully they were all terminated at the very least.

Hopefully they were not, otherwise it would be a sign the airline doesn't want to improve, instead placing quick blame on the crew.

Latest I have heard, TK send a pretty sizeable technical crew to KTM and with Airbus they are trying to save this frame. It might take 6 months or longer. Not sure where are they planning on flying it to get this done. First thing they will fix it to fly it to a tech facility.

6 months!
If they commit themselves to such a long time, I guess it's not a write off.

Enjoyed a little jaunt in a Turkish A332 today, hence my question.
The flight to Basel returned to base due to a bomb thread but luckily I had no issues.

My only observation was the gianormous queue for take off at IST!

Cheers,

Sorry to hear that, seems like TK getting those threads daily. I hope they take every single one of them seriously and don't get complacent. How long was the queue? My record was 14 during lunch hour, I guess that is not that bad these days.

Flew in and out of KTM 4 times 2 weeks back and this A332 is still sitting in the tarmac on the other side with logos removed and nose drooped. Since it has been pushed pretty far back on the other side of the terminal apron area, not much can be understood from afar except that nothing much seems to have bee done till now.

The regular TK flights still land as per schedule, with the injured Mamma overlooking them.  Wow!

The pic below is taken by me, low quality I know, sorry about that....

20 aircraft, according to the Captain.

No news, anybody?
In between all the mayhem in Nepal, I don't think the Airbus repair is of great priority.
