Total Engine Failure - Eastern Air Lines Flight 855 - XP11


Comments • 711


    Glory to God.
    I have a question for the so called aviation experts👉WHY CAN'T ALL PLANES HAVE FOUR OR MORE ENGINES AND FLYING ON TWO THEN THE OTHER TWO FOR EMERGENCIES LIKE THIS.👉For how long will we continue hearing about "engine failure" in midair?!!!

    Man if that second engine had not suddenly restarted. 😅😅

    It is my understanding that this incident resulted in the establishment of ETOPs rules (Extended Twin-engine OPerations), for improving the reliability of twin engine aircraft on overwater flights, so that the same mechanic is not supposed to do work on both engines....making it highly unlikely that all three chip detectors would be improperly installed. I say "all three" chip detectors because the ETOPs standards have now been expanded to aircraft with more than two power plants.

    I love this channel! There are so many other channels like this and they use FS2004, or FSX but X-Plane 11 is ideal! Great commentary.

    Would the flight engineer not notice the leaks as a decreasing oil levels on the gauges ??? does the planes monitoring system not recognize the trend of rapidly decreasing oil levels as a serious developing problem to inform the pilot ?

    Well, too bad they don't have autopilot for ground maintenance staff. How often have you seen them mess up by not uncovering the pitot tubes (or failing to cover them, equally bad for long periods of rest)?

    Several lessons hopefully were learned by this: 1. never retrofit all engines on a plane at the same time, 2. check the oil level on engines periodically, eg. 5 minutes. 3. if anything goes wrong with an engine, stay on track for the closest airport especially when over large sections of water.

    3:39 the Flight Engineer calls tech support...
    Indian accent: "Rolls Royce technical support, this is... Steve... how can I help you today?"
    "Hi, uh... "Steve" this is FE... Dopinder... and I''ve got no oil pressure on any engine. I think we're going down with a full plane of passengers."
    "I want you to try turning off the engines and turning them back on..."

    So the mechanics messed up, who blamed it on a lack of supervisors, who blamed it on the FAA for a lack of safety surveillance, reported by the NTSB. Way to pass the blame all the way up the chain to the feds. How’s about you do your job right the first time. If you need to be supervised to do your daily job, you shouldn’t be there in the first place. I’m a pilot by the way.
