    Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel! Today's video will all be about the fuel jettison procedure, or better known as "FUEL DUMPING". Why do pilots dump costly fuel overboard, after you´ve just paid for it as a passenger? And what a terrible pollution of the environment! So pilots have to have a good enough reason why they do that?
    As jets began flying with US airlines in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the FAA rule in effect at the time mandated that if the ratio between an aircraft's maximum structural takeoff weight and its maximum structural landing weight was greater than 105%, the aircraft had to have a fuel dump system installed. Aircraft such as the Boeing 707 and 727 and the Douglas DC-8 had fuel dump systems. Any of those aircraft needing to return to a takeoff airport above the maximum landing weight would jettison an amount of fuel sufficient to reduce the aircraft's weight below that maximum landing weight limit and then land.
    And in our case, we have a medical emergency just beyond the coast of Scottland which forces us to land at the next suitable airport, which is Dublin. Then we´ll do the math on how much fuel we actually have to dump in order to safely land at Dublin airport below the maximum landing weight to not damage the airplane.
    We´ll quickly go over the fuel dumping panel and the actual fuel dumping hose of the Boeing 747.
    I hope you enjoy this basic explanation video on the fuel dumping procedure.
    BIG THANK YOU to my fellow subscribers who sent in the subtitles in their language, really appreciate your work!!!
    BIG THANK YOU to the youtubers providing me with their great content, please check out their channels for more great content.

    then how this matches up with another video on you tube explaining how much fuel planes can save while flying from new york to london thanks to the JET STREAM air across the Atlantic?
    that video explained how as much as 5000$ on a trip can be saved
    but i didnt know then that you can also dump 55 tons of fuel on a whim LOL
    i guess the pilot that can proceed overweight landing can receive a bonus for the evening equal to lets say 10 tons of aircraft fuel. i wonder how much a bonus that is

    Airplane technology is so advanced.....can technology design much smaller shuttle plane landing on top of main plane WHILE STILL IN MID AIR to transfer sick passenger upward by A HATCH OPENING from one plane to another ???? JUST AN IDEA....FAR FETCH ????

    What I don't understand in it, is with the long-time experience of aeronautic engineers, why haven't they developped yet a solution better than wasting fuel? For example, why couldn't they invent a better shock-absorption system on the landing wheels?

    Don't assume to calculate weights to me you no talent hack. You have a license to do this stuff!!??? You nitwits don't know how to make an approach and landing when you're heavy? I do that all the time and learn to feel the difference in landing on an aircraft carrier WITH THE DROP TANK LOADED. Just because I'm uncomfortable landing with such an uncomfortable sink rate and compensating with airspeed, I try and teach myself the feel, which tells me that I'm already better at landing than you are. Better than you and all your punk pilot buddies put together. Don't try and blow around the issue of your failure of fuel management or other alternatives that could be done, such as alternate airports to land, if you can't handle the weight of the aircraft and sink rate. That way you would have the decency to extract fuel by the trucks and take off later. You could also alternate some of those passengers onto regional jets, if they're in some kinda hurry.

  • Sebastian Nielsen
    Sebastian Nielsen 17 days ago

    I wonder, isn't it possible to do a softer landing instead? Basically, land on the glidescope of 3 red, 1 White on the papi, which gives a slower descent rate and the touchdown becomes much less severe, thus the landing inpact doesn't become as high as a "normal" landing, provided theres no obstructions in the pathway. Maybe thats how a overweight landing is done?

    Very nice presentation and thank you! I retired from aviation maintenance after 44 years and it's still the most fascinating thing which I never tire of! I appreciate your mentioning the smaller airliners like the 737's which was the type and class of commercial jets I was most involved with. Most of our routes were short to medium range, and the way we planned, burning off excess fuel wasn't usually too much of a problem for us. Hard landings were more of concern for me than overweight. Fortunately, it was a rare thing.

  • abuaseel01
    abuaseel01 20 days ago +1

    I thought it was because in case the engine explodes or there is a fire somewhere on board or they need to make an emergency landing, dumping the fuel would guarantee that the explosion or fire afterwards is less lethal.

    • Danny R.
      Danny R. 18 days ago

      Technically correct. If the plane is over the Max. Landing weight that might happen

  • Bradyy
    Bradyy 20 days ago

    6:30 understand this bit, however, what if for example the closest route would be to near to not allow enough time for fuel dumping? eg, 35 mins needed to dump fuel in order to reach an airport 25 minutes away. Would you resolve this problem by just going to a different airport which is slightly further away?

    6:48 - "...that the dumping operations have to be coordinated with ATC." Unless you're a screenwriter for Hollywood. In the movie _Flight_ the pilot played by Denzel Washington dumps the fuel at 22,000ft without asking ATC. A few seconds later he calls ATC and *_tells_* them he's dumping fuel, he doesn't ask them. Of course I realize there are plenty of other technical issues wrong with that movie. ;)
