    Auf dem Weg von Zürich nach Shanghai wurde während des Fluges eine erhöhte Öl Temperatur in Triebwerk Nummer 3 festgestellt. Der Flug musste abgebrochen werden, eine Sicherheitslandung war nötig. Anschließend wurde der Flug mit einem anderen Flugzeug fortgesetzt. Das Video zeigt die vorgehensweise der Piloten in einer Ausnahmesituation, bis zur Landung.
    On the way from Zurich to Shanghai during the flight was an increased oil temperature found in engine 3. The flight had to be canceled, a landing was necessary. Then the flight was continued with a new plane. The video shows the entire approach to the landing, in an exceptional situation.

      It’s Swiss German which is - in essence - an accent so thick that most Germans have trouble understanding it. For all intents and purposes it’s a different language.

      There is no requirement to. It’s much safer for crews to converse in their native tongues as it reduces the chance of a misunderstanding - especially in an emergency.

      Max I’ve seen the video hundreds of times, but only when subtitles were done via annotations - and even those varied between two different versions of the same clip. So short answer to your question is “probably”.
      We really need a good translation - presented properly - and linked to in the description.

    As someone that has studied (high) German, the pilot has a very strong accent, I'm assuming Swiss but maybe influenced by another part of his heritage. The copilot speaks closer to high German and is much easier to understand. It's interesting to hear the mix of English and German/Swiss German. 🙂

    • Colin Southern

      Swiss German - which probably isn't surprising considering they're Swiss pilots.

      Negative. It was a real flight from Zurich to Shanghai that was being recorded by PilotsEye TV anyway, so a “lucky break” for them and a not so lucky break for passengers and crew. It was caused by a failed fuel/oil heat exchanger for the #3 engine.

    .....Strömungsabriss... OK!... Kann passieren!... aber dann nicht in einem Heftchen rumblättern, sondern mal das erlernte heraus lassen!!!
    Autopilot, Flight-Director und Schub Kontrolle OFF! Steuer in die Hand und selber fliegen!

      Colin Southern 20 days ago

      No - not a simulator. You'll never see sunlight in a sim - or chocolates for that matter. It was a real flight from Zurich to Shanghai that was being filmed by PilotsEye TV anyway. The fault was a failed fuel/oil heat exchanger for the #3 engine. No reason not to be calm; the A340-300 can stay aloft on 2 engines at full fuel and only 1 engine at max landing weight. Hope this helps.

    Yea, professional except the Captain ran the wrong checklist. IDG overtemp is not the same as Engine Oil Overtemp. The FO saved a huge mistake.

    • Colin Southern
      Colin Southern 21 day ago +1

      IDG was also over-temp, but yes, it was the wrong checklist. You saw a good example of excellent CRM right there; in many cultures people have died because a first officer was afraid to challenge a captain. Here he simply admitted his mistake - apologised - and told her "she was right". Wherever humans are involved mistakes will be made. Conversely, she also made a mistake by not fully retarding the #3 engine thrust lever - and in another example of excellent CRM the captain pointed it out for her to correct since she was pilot flying (rather than confuse who had control of the aircraft by simply doing it for her). This is real-world CRM at it's best - through all phases of the incident.

      In terms of safety, not a big deal at all. But the failure at that stage of the flight means that they have to turn back for many reasons (eg insufficient fuel for one).

    Perfect cooperations. Captain asks opinion from FO but he make own decision. Always asks confirm , before press anything button. Note when eng3 throttle controls isn't in idle and captain shows that by finger. And captain is in wrong page in the manual, FO says that. Humans doing mistakes, but when cooperations is perfect, they can avoid mistakes.

    sort of reminds me when all 3 in the cockpit working on replacing a burnt out light bulb.And no one was paying attention/flying the plane.And when one looked out the window realized the auto pilot was off and into the ground they went.

    • Colin Southern
      Colin Southern Month ago

      It shouldn't do. Many lessons were learned from that disaster and you can see many of them in-play here. This crew wasn't on the approach to land - if they were then it would have been prioritised differently. The autopilot now makes a hell of a racket if it disconnects itself - and the first thing they did was clarify who had responsibility for flying the aircraft and handling the radios. They're flying IFR (on instruments) - some 8000' above the highest point on the planet - in transponder mandatory airspace (so altitude is reported via SSR) (Secondary Surveillance Radar) - equipped with TCAS (Traffic Collision & Avoidance System) - in airspace where other traffic is also required to have TCAS - they're equipped with GPWS (Ground Proximity Warning System) - flying in airspace that's monitored by ATC who has conflict detect systems monitoring all aircraft - flying a SID (Standard Instrument Departure) (which inherently keeps them clear of other traffic and terrain) - and the FCS (Flight Control System) monitors their position approx 100 times per second. There's no more point "looking out the window" than there would be if they were flying in cloud. The chances of them hitting another aircraft or flying into the ground per the event you mention are exactly zero point zero. There are however advantages to the two pilots cross-checking each other (both make mistakes in this video that were picked up by the other pilot). Hope this helps.

    It's such a shame that most Americans only speak English fluently, and some not very well. We have such a long way to go in improving our educational system here in the USA. Public schools should be year round, not based on some outdated agricultural calendar. Teachers need to be paid an amount worthy of their task, and schools should be funded accordingly as well. If Trump gets elected to four more years in office I don't know if I can hold on to hope long enough to stay in this country. Too bad Canada is so cold much of the year. I'm thinking of Germany or maybe Southern France. I can understand people being stupid and believing Trump lies, but I can't understand why they would want to. The latter is much more ominous when one considers Evangelical White Supremacism on the rise here. Fascism, plain and simple, and I want none of it for my family. I know I should stay and fight it, but I can also fight it from a safe distance across the pond. Life is too short! Time to get my passport renewed!

      There are many things that many countries would like to invest more in; education is one. Health is another. Housing is another. Poverty is another. Roading and infrastructure is another. Unfortunately there just isn't the money available to fund all of these things to the level desired. With regards to Trump; the media are hugely off-side with him and thus most of what they write is negative. Forming an opinion on Trump based on media reports is like a jury retiring to deliberate their verdict after having only heard from the prosecution; you get an unsafe verdict every time. My belief is that he often doesn't do himself any favours - but I also appreciate that a lot of what he tweets comes from frustration; I'm sure most alpha-males would lash out if they were constantly accused of things that weren't a fair and balanced account. He has his strengths - and his weaknesses. Not particularly fond of him myself (as a New Zealander) but having said that, I can't think of anyone better either. Obama is one hell of a nice guy and a genuinely great human being ... but ultimately what did he accomplish that moved the country forward? Anyway - we're digressing from the A340 Engine-Out video.

    • Colin Southern
      Colin Southern Month ago

      There is no requirement for English to be spoken. It needs to be available as ONE of the languages so that crews of one nationality can speak with an air traffic controller of a different nationality (which they did here). The remainder of the radio traffic was between the captain and his operations base - they're free to use whatever language they want - and since they're both Swiss it makes perfect sense that they would speak Swiss German. Within the cockpit crews use their native language; it's safer - especially in an emergency - as it reduces that chances of a misunderstanding. So no "rudeness" here - just a misunderstanding on your part it seems.
