    I have some questions for those who may be knowledgeable, because I’m not a pilot or ATC. So, I’m not being critical at all, just curious. Is it typical / necessary for a pilot to repeat Mayday x3 on every call? At what point should he squawk 7700? When he’s showing 7700, does he need to say Mayday x3 again? Also, he asks about which runways are operational at BOS, but doesn’t ask for the longest until later. Anyone want to comment on that? I get it. If I’m a pilot and I hear the words smoke/fire, I wouldn’t be as calm as he is. Excellent job by all!

    • VASAviation -

      1- MAYDAY should be said three times only at the moment of declaring. Then the word MAYDAY should be said once just after your callsign at least every time you switch a new frequency. 2- 7700 should be set at any time workload permits. It's not mandatory. 3- After squawk 7700, go back to point number 1. 4- First you need to know which runways they are using to prepare and set your navigation. Once you know that, you can go father and ask for the longest runway which will give more margin for braking.

    I think the tower plays a role in the mess up for not correcting PRIT when he read back clear to land. PRIT also had bad situational awareness, he did pay any attention to the other traffic in the pattern.

    Earthquakes aren’t rated using the Richter scale despite the continued attachment to the term. 7.1 is most likely the moment magnitude of the earthquake, though USGS guidelines are to just say “magnitude” without stating the scale.

      @J. P. Fagerback I think that's probably the bigger factor - LAX has to withstand 3.X earthquakes fairly frequently so they've probably got concrete rated for handling moderate earthquakes and have done more comprehensive assessments of safe procedures from a earthquake.. Anchorage does not get them that frequently so its procedures are probably towards maximum caution.

      I was really surprised that they continued landing operations during the quake. It was a totally different reaction from the quake in Alaska recently where all inbound flights went around. The controller was even very frantic to get the freight one which was just about to land to go around. LAX might be so used to quakes that they’re blasé about them.

    I would like to know why the aircraft ended up balled up and burning? Did he snag power lines or did he have to dodge cars and trucks. I would have expected a better flare out and set down so that even the aircraft was not so badly destroyed . Unless there was reasons for the total destruction of the aircraft I wonder if he had proper skills to be flying at all. A engine failure does not cause a plane to drop like a rock and crash but lack of ability to pilot will even with a good engine.

    Possibly, the worse situation for a first flight or two, student pilot. Not sure if this happened to me under the same circumstances, if I'd be so capable. Most likely not, if I remember correctly my first training days. I'd be trying to revive the instructor after stabilizing the plane with respect to airspeed, altitude, and straight and level flight. A tall order when you're not used to handling these things all at the same time. I think, one of the best planes to have this kind of emergency. I have my flying stories but nothing like this. Now, on to part-2.
