    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.

    Drop gas tanks with parachute then. You will save much of fuel then and money. Stop dumping enviroment! But still I dont believe, that same trails in white colour caused by condensate or dumped overfuel. Is it coincidence that exhaust fumes and spilled fuel looks the same white colour? You think we are idiots?

  • markmywords312

    I just knew he'd say the fuel would just dissipate into the atmosphere. Wrong! That suggests it magically disappears. He's brave to bring this subject up, so I wont knock him personally, but it's an absolute digraceful practice, hideously damaging to the environment and more a product of shoddy airmanship than necessity. Disgusting.

    All very interesting, but what the hell does all that fuel do to the environment, let alone breathing the damn stuff in? I live near Heathrow airport and the stink of "Jet A1" is sometimes appalling. If I live long enough to retire from work, it'll be a looong way away from an airport. Just out of curiosity, has there ever been a study into what breathing jet fuel does to you?........Just asking.

    I live under a landing zone about 2 miles from the airport and occasionally smell fuel when planes pass by. I hope they aren't dumping that low, but the smell is so strong I have to wonder and it's right over my garden which I really hate.

    When you are in cruising altitude, after every few miles or so,do you keep adjusting the plane's level relative to your waypoints to compensate for the earth-s curvature, or do you just fly straight?

    Capt. Joe, thank you for the explanation of this procedure - now I am more screwed up than when I first began watching this. Pardon me for I am laughing at the time I am posting this. It is Not a laughing matter this fuel dumping for it is necessary thing. Sir - just dump the dead wood [passengers, cargo, suit cases and Co-pilot]. . . weight down and safe for landing!

  • Paul Meyer
    Paul Meyer 21 day ago

    During the past months planes from a nearby army field had to dump fuel 3 times in 6 weeks over the same protected forest.
    Each time it was dropped high enough that most of it vaporized and the rest was spread too thin to notice on the ground. But the contamination could well be measured and seen afterwards and that was before the next rain which would bring the vaporized fuel back down. So while it is an emergency procedure it is not an uncontroversal one.

    bulllllllshit , where do u keep all that much of fuel that u have felled within 45 min max ..... btw y is the hose on one side only .... and y is it upwards , wont it catch fire with that pumping speed that u need to obtain? did they hide the air compressed engine ... u just have no integrity ... ur no different from any captain at a pirate ship ... pls dont mislead the people u will be asked for it.

    As always the environment takes a back seat. People move into wild animal areas and in an human animal encounter with the beast just trying to survive the best way it knows how. The fish and game department sets out to kill it.
    So you dump a plane load of fuel because somebody has medical issues.
