The cabin crew and passengers forced the door fully open but fell from the aircraft. The captain also argued that he would have cleared the trees but the aircraft forced him down. The flyover had been approved by Air France's Air Operations Directorate and Flight Safety Department, and air traffic control and Basel tower had been informed. But this was a low straight-and-level flight along the length of the grass strip, planned for a runway which was clear of terrain on both ends. It is not my style to simply parrot what someone else has written—I read, digest, then rewrite.

The warning would be generated by the radio altimeter. Please take a moment to review. By circling and making another approach, he would have reduced the workload in the cabin. For certification, an engine must be able to spool up in eight seconds. The evacuation from the rear door had been fast and smooth thanks to the instructions from the flight attendants at the rear of the aircraft. A training captain since 1979, he was appointed to head the company's A320 training subdivision at the end of 1987.

Fear of Landing

Asseline has nobody else to blame for putting the plane into such a dangerous configuration, he was in command. However from the way the article was written I'm drawing some conclusions. The uploader has to assert fair use in each particular circumstance, and a third party can't free-ride on another person's fair use claim. On the 26th of June in 1988, one of the first in-service Airbus A320s flew a demonstration flight over Habsheim airport and ended in tragedy. I believe most aircraft have limited range radar altimeters that only function fairly close to the ground to be used for landing.

The co-pilot called out 100 feet monitoring their height above the ground but the captain never responded. The pilots are targetting a specific approach speed and only minor changes are needed. The protection would still apply to stall avoidance. While I don't particularly care which way this goes, at the moment the article is inconsistent. The dense forest tore off the right wing, igniting the fuel inside.

The A320 has a lot of safety features that, provided that the aircraft is properly operated, by a well-trained crew, will introduce a whole new safety platform. The aircraft now was sinking below the one thousand feet protection, configured for landing with engines still at idle but also at a speed that was very low. He was endorsed on the Caravelle, Boeing 707 and 737, and had qualified as an A320 captain three months before the accident. The medical team from the airshow arrived and began examining the passengers. Retrieved 20 March, 2009 from, c First A320 Crash 1988.

The emergency escape slide immediately began inflating, still stuck inside the fuselage. As part of the air show it was scheduled to fly over Mulhouse-Habsheim Airport at a low speed with landing gear and flaps extended, at an altitude of 100 ft. So Steve, your suggestion normally should be totally unnecessary. The A320 fly-by-wire still would prevent a stall, but if the aircraft has a bit of excess speed and the crew were pulling power back to demonstrate how it would be able to fly, high pitch-up, without stalling, the aircraft would have continued to sink with rapidly decaying speed. Because the captain is disabling the alpha floor protection, he has to rely on the co-pilot to adjust the engine thrust so that they can maintain straight and level flight.

It is an important part of the event and was the subject of significant media scrutiny. So pilot got the wrong altitude for the ground off by 70' , added 100 and ended up 30' off the ground. Some passengers had difficulty unfastening their seatbelts because they were unfamiliar with the mechanism it differs from the type used in car seatbelts. In this case, the speed had been quietly decaying since they started their descent. This response of the engines complied with their certification data. So to get altitude above ground you need to know the altitude of the ground above sea level.

The aircraft was set up for the low pass: wheels down, flaps fully extended. This gives the incorrect impression that the official account is inadequate or wrong. Habsheim aerodrome was too small to be listed in the aircraft's flight computer, thereby requiring a ; both pilots were also unfamiliar with the airfield when they began their descent from 2,000 feet 610 m only 6 nautical miles 11 km from the field. A bit of excess speed to cope with wind gusts and even sloppy flying and b. They would take off from Basel, retracting the landing gear but leaving the flaps at 1 10° when going below 100 knots.
