Minneapolis, MN - October 23, 2018 at 16:24 UTC (1:24PM CT)
Delta Flight 589 (737) loses cabin pressure and has flight speed winds rushing into the cockpit. The pilot squawk 7700 to declare an emergency. The following is the communications between KMSP Air Traffic Control and the pilots of flight 589. As you will see, the pilots did everything they could to keep this aircraft flying; they were NOT able to hear communications and were basically flying in a very dangerous situation for about 15 minutes until they landed.

  • Cockpit windows open if they're not closed properly or mis-rigged. It usually happens on the take-off run or initial climbout. The cockpit doesn't get too windy but the noise makes communicating difficult or impossible. This happened shortly after takeoff so airspeed would be V2+20, less than 200 kts. (not the 500 mph stated). The window can be closed below 200 kts. unless it is damaged or mis-rigged. On initial climbout the cabin is barely pressurized- 1/2"PSID vs. over 8"PSID at altitude. Boeing has several videos of cockpit windows opening during test flights. Cockpit windows shatter from time to time but only one of several layers fail. I had it happen twice- once in the C-141 and once on the 727. It makes a loud bang and really gets your attention. It's extremely rare for a complete failure but it has happened. Interesting video!

    • Max W P

    • Thank you! Nice to hear it from a real pilot, not just a non pilot, like me, trying to make sense of it.

    • Texting is not available? Asking for a Fren...🌴😎🌴

    • So when 589 squawked 7700, did ATC not pick that up?? ATC seemed to still be unaware the aircraft was in emergency.

    • +Bob R If you saw some of the older senators questioning the CEO of Google you could see that they had no clue. ALPA (Air Line Pilots Association), the pilots' union, has had a "one level of safety" campaign going on for about ten years. The goal is to have the same standards for cargo transports that are in place for passenger transports. Single pilot operations for a large complex transports are an invitation for disaster. Even if the cargo 767, A-330 or whatever crashes, it's not the headcount on the jet, what if it crashes into a shopping mall? Two pilots are essential, more if it's long haul route.

  • These 2 clowns took off with the window open. You never heard them say theye had a window crack or blow out. They said we have a window open. God bless the pilots who actually learn to close and lock the window BEFORE they take off. I hope they got some time off for this unpaid. .............Idiots

  • I hope they had full glass coverage!

  • I think I know the female pilot. I didn't see any names here but she sounds like the delta girl that I know.

  • Imagine how difficult the Aloha pilots had it with front section of the airplane roof peeled back.

    • Thomas Daniels . You so right about handling skills. I currently fly the 737-800, in a previous job I flew the 737-200. The 200 was a delight to hand fly. The skinny JT8 engines tucked up under the wing meant thrust changes had little effect on pitch. With the 800 every time you change thrust you’re on the trim switch. The 800 also has longer wings but the ailerons stop three feet in, and the overall effect is the airplane flys like a truck where as the 200 was a sports car. I avoid hand flying these days. The design should have been scrapped long ago, before the 800 iteration. But no, in deference to the almighty dollar god Boeing rolls out the Max.

    • Ah yes, the Boeing that was tragically turned into a 737 convertible. The way the poor flight attendant met her fate was heartbreaking, but the pilots safely landing that aircraft wasnt luck, it was pure talent. Even though planes had autopilot, pilots back then would fly the aircraft from time to time. These days we focus too much on our equipment and not enough on hand flying the aircraft

  • one they squawked 7700, no further comms were necessary. they were gonna do what they were gonna do and atc was just gonna clear a path, everybody involved knew that. the communication about the runway assignment was just the cherry on top. the lack of response was unnerving (maybe) to the controller but completely understandable. he's paid to talk on the radio, the pilots are paid to fly the a/c. great job everybody. next time 2x check the window latch. doh!

  • Lots of Bozo professional opinions here. Just glad the pilots handled the Emergency and landed safely.

  • B U C K F U T T

  • They were not in severe danger and they were not going 500 mph. They were at 7000 feet. You don't need oxygen at that height. I had to stop the video.

  • Way too exaggerated commentary,

  • Pilots did a fine job. Tower had their heads up their asses... DUH! 589 CANT HEAR YOU IDIOT!

  • My dog would have loved to put his head out that window.

  • Lol it's called a cellphone guys

  • Should have text backup on a screen if audio is unreadable

  • nice job on the video !

  • “Ladies and gentlemen this is the captain speaking. If anyone has a pair of noise cancelling headphones they can lend us up here, please press your flight attendant call button. Thank you.”

  • It's up to ATC to keep shit out of his/her way, in this situation I thing the pilot should have flown the aircraft and ignored ATC, the communication quality for the most part to low to be actionable.

  • They should have called 'em on the phone. At that altitude, it woulda worked.

  • He called her honey.

  • Airplanes fly because of Bernoulli, not Marconi. Don't drop the airplane to fly the mike.These folks followed that rule, and all came out safely.

    • Jay Maynard never heard that one. Beauty.

  • Consummate professionalism by ATC and flight crew. Not life threatening unless you get preoccupied with the window and forget to fly, but adds risk nontheless. Also nice to see the flightsimmers not telling us how they would have handled it.

  • I bet now faa makes window checks part of check list before push back

  • Why can't they have some sort of text display for safer communication?

    • By the way I read your mistake free text perfectly.

    • +dim sung Did you hear the audio???

  • If delta squawks 7700 and it pops up for ATC, why not ask right away if you have an emergency?

  • Female pilot very professional and under control. You go girl.

  • An open window will not necessarily put an aircraft in danger, it has happened many times before as a matter of fact a colleague of mine had it happen, the worst part about it is you can't hear anything in the cockpit except the rush of air....

  • =

  • 500mph wind !!

  • Subtitles was way to retardish.

  • Aviate. Navigate. Communicate. They did it right.

  • Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinkin'...

  • Seems like every cockpit should have a roll of duct tape.

  • 500mph winds? I don't think so. He was at 7000ft so would have been

  • Is there no option to use ACARS for communication in a situation like this?

  • Jesus or the Lord of the Rings are NOT connected to this incident 😇

  • You wouldn't want to be the captain's wig in the cockpit when that happens

  • Pre flight check list what happened

  • Somebody fucked up no cross check

  • How many times do they have to say "We CAN'T HEAR YOU, ASSHAT"

  • Jesus christ just a window open.

  • God bless these brave men and women who take to the skies every day to take us where we need to go! I have nothing but 100% admiration and respect for these pilots. And let's not forget the brave cabin crew, who calmly go about their business making sure we aren't terrified out of our wits. You are the best!

  • Inexcusable...closing and latching a cockpit window is pretty basic. It sounds like an Affirmative Action hiring fuck-up. Decades ago, when I was interviewing at United for a Pilot slot, they were endeavoring to hire mostly woman and minorities. I saw them hire 300 Hour women and Nigerian Green-Card holders and pass-up US Citizens such as military aviators and others of us with thousands of flight hours. Our society is basically screwed because of such ineptitude and irreverence to logic and fairness, all in the name of bullshit liberal policies and ideas. The aviation industry is chock-full of such fucktard pilots and crewmembers. One only hopes that the person who did not close their cockpit window is now working at Taco Bell or selling real estate. However, knowing the industry, "She" is probably now a 747 captain or Check Airman. Truly pathetic...

  • They didn't need Fire/Rescue upon landing, just Autoglass.

  • That’s nothing a British airways flight landed safely with the captain hanging out of the window with only his legs inside the cockpit !

  • She sounded rattled and petrified. Glad the captain took the controls.

  • Yeah, I dont know of any planes that are at 500 knots right after takeoff. Maybe at cruise they would be, but they were probably going about 200~ knots.

  • I've had a door pop open on a Beech Baron. It's unbelievably loud. I couldn't imagine this in an airliner.

  • Next time skip the lettering stunts

  • It was the height of incompetence and negligence for the air traffic controllers to be hearing repeatedly from the Delta 589 pilots that they could not hear them because of the cockpit noise, only for the controllers then to respond with communications in which they used quick speech, didn't enunciate, spoke at low volume, even slurred their words. Just awful. As soon as it was clear that the pilots were having trouble making out the ATC communications, ATC should have spoken louder, more slowly, and more clearly. For heaven's sake. Just common sense.

  • Atc and pilot great job

  • why didn't they just roll up the window?

  • "SQUAK 77!" (said in Japanese)

  • I agree with the one guy aviate navigate and communicate that's the order of the day when there's an emergency

  • Aviate, navigate, commnunicate... and, this case, fumigate

  • I had a door open in my Baron. It was impossible to close. The plane flew like crap. Yoke was shaking. Did a bit faster than normal approach. No flaps. Clearly the airflow on the right was not good. Lesson. Don't trust anyone to make sure the door is secure. Not even another pilot!!

  • Okay so was this a watershed moment to set a system where audio switches to computer screen messaging?

  • Delta still kicked out mother with child for wearing a hijab.

  • last time I flew with this crew they left the door open

  • Pilot just opened the window cuz his co pilot was bitching about the smell.

  • Good Lord the cockpit window?

  • the poor passengers - what is up with Delta losing the outer and inner window.

  • I love the female pilot's calm tone at the end! She's a STUD pilot for sure!

    • She's a stud all right......A stud who doesnt know how to close a window before she takes off.........pure genius

  • TURNS OUT ONE OF THE STEWARDESS OPENED THE WINDOW TO AIR OUT THE CABIN AFTER SOMEONE FARTED.

  • Incredible job by this flight crew. A question from a non-aviator-Does the 7700 code get broadcast automatically, or does it require a manipulation of some kind?

  • No headsets , way not , 200 kts , barely an emergency .

  • Scott Anthony- I sincerely wish u well with your channel but PLEASE do not contribute to the ignorant over dramatization & often inaccurate reporting of aviation by media. Just the other day I sat thru a CBS evening news "story" super hyped with obligatory dramatic music of "planes almost crashing on landing, one even touched the runway with its wheels before managing to take off again!" While crosswind landings are high workload for the crew they are relatively routine and go-arounds do not signify the plane was about to crash. Just another way to scare and misinform the generally ignorant public. Almost all of your captions were useless and hyperbole. Check out vasaaviation here on YT if u want to help educate and inform, not just be another "top 10" YT quack!

  • He wasn't going 500 MPH. 250 MPH is the max allowable indicated air speed under 10,000' MSL.

  • "PILOTS ARE FLYING THE AIRCRAFT..." Yeah no shit...

  • You're not spielberg. You could present this in a much more professional manner.

  • This crew is fantastic and managed this emergency well, Although not all of the communication was recorded the crew very rapidly got their oxygen mask on and were in control of events. They were excited but in control and did a super job getting the aircraft back to the airport. This could have ended badly glass fragments can cause blindness so Great job.

  • it's Orville and Wilbur Wright's fault, they got us all into this mess. If God wanted us to fly, he'd have given us tail feathers and little pellets of magnetized iron in our brains (and you notice all the comments are 1 month ago. That's because you all weren't wearing your tinfoil and you all got a government command to post at the same time thus unwittingly participating in the latest mind control experimentation from darpa or arpa or someone else using an omni directional beam apparatus)

  • Give them a moment tower they are busy flying.

  • Duty-free chat has it as the 1st Officers forward windscreen rubber gasket blew out not the actual glass pane, and not the opening side window. Sure is happening a lot.

  • At least the pilot wasn't hanging out the window like on a British Airways flight where the pilot's window popped out at 35k feet.

  • I agree to text should be incorporated as a secondary means of communication s

  • Is Savage Burnsville actual cities in MSP?

    • Biscuit FPV yes they are actual cities.

  • One of the crew dropped an egg fart, the widow was opened no matter what the cost..

  • I would not suggest piloting transport aircraft is "easy," clearly you need training and experience to do so. But the automation makes the work routine, so the pilots skill, ability and experience really counts the most when things are NOT going according routine. Thats what they get paid the good money for, the non-standard day in the cockpit.

  • Too bad they can’t text the tower. Like “OMG i didn’t do takeoff checklist 🤦‍♀️😂my window opened LOL 😆 gonna have to return BRB ✈️ ❤️👍”

  • And, if this situation happened on an ALLEGIANT AIR FLIGHT..... because ALLEGIANT AIR FLIGHT CREWS GET FIRED FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING... Allegiant protocol is to simply continue the flight!!! EMERGENCY LANDING WITH ALLEGIANT AIR VERY EMBARRASSING AND TAKES THE PROFITS OUT OF "MAURY'S" POCKETS!!! And spare me your rebuttals folks until you research FIRED flight crews at this DIRT BAG AIR CARRIER! Allegiant Air IS NOT an airline ya' know....at that fact alone should SCARE YOU TO DEATH! They are a "TRAVEL COMPANY!"

  • DAL's officials statement of " a window seal problem" had me LOLOLOL! I've EVIDENCE to the contrary. Good job there flight crew.

  • In my company you would be stressed not for crashing but for getting fired after landing. More than one would even consider crashing instead. Sad. Welcome to aviation these days

  • “This is for entertainment purposes and not for flight instruction”......seriously though??

  • These pilots (regardless of gender) seem to all have balls of steel. What I don't understand is how they stop the sparks from flying out of their asses all the time....

  • Enough of the captions!

  • They need to install a volume key on radios.

  • these captions are way too over dramatized

  • Last time I flew delta out of this same airport a ceiling panel of the plane collapsed as we taxied to the runway.

  • remove tray and roll up the window before leaving drive up resterant

  • This made me moister than a Oyster !!!!!!!!!!!

  • love it scott, you just show and tell it as it is. no dramatic music or viuals. just as it happened thankyou for the upload x

  • wild guess: Boeing again?

  • okay, I do realize a sh*t ton of people have already mentioned that the captions are unnecessarily overly dramatic. But let's be very rational here and look at things very calmly: Gerard has already explained in an excellent way how a window can open under mentioned circumstances. Now, an open window isn't in anyway related to the ability of the aircraft to fly, so, depending on the time of occurrence, you have to make a decision to either reject the take-off or to continue and try to close the window later while climbing or to return in case the closing of the window failes. if you wish to have a more detailed look into this have a look at this training video: cs-tv.org/tv/video-dEMcD-RWA9A.html To the myth an open cockpit window will a) suck you out and b) introduce hurricane-like winds in the cockpit: Now, first scenario is very dependant on the altitude you're at. At anything below FL100 (10,000 ft / ~3km / 1.86mi) it's safe to say: no it won't. The pressure difference is far too low to create a suction so strong to get anything of the weight of an adult out of his / her chair. Now, at higher altitudes it still is fairly unlikely _but_ it has already happened (BAW5390, EGBB--> LEMG, 10th June 1990). Mentioned incident was due to faulty maintenance of the fixture of the window itself. To the second myth: Of course it depends which window is open. The main front windshield will allow the head wind to enter the cockpit full force and will introduce heavy winds into the cockpit. Mostly very turbulent air though since the air can't "go" anywhere. It's like taking a bottle and drag it through the water. once full, there won't fit anymore. Instead you'll have to endure a sheer amount of noise. Communication will become extremely difficult and has to be done through sign language using very clear signs. Let's continue: No response of the Pilot Flying and / or Pilot Communicating: In aviation, as there should be in any other field of work, there is the following principle: Aviate, Navigate, communicate. Firstly make sure, you fly your plane. This is the most critical. Don't do anything that would distract you from flying your plane should it require your full and only attention. When you're able to fly your plane in a safe manner, watch where you are, where you're going and where you might want to go. Do you need to divert? Can you continue? Do you need to put the plane down as soon as possible? If so: where do you want to land? When do you want to land? Lastly, and only when you safely fly and navigate your plane, state your intentions to atc in a manner which can not be misunderstood. Do you declare an Emergency (Mayday) or just a Pan? What happened? What will your immediate actions be in terms of navigating? What are your final intentions in terms of diverting / emergency landing (ditching) or continuing? etc. Now, all this can be observed excellently in this video: 0:24 - 0:30 _Aviate_ , try fixing the problem, coming up with a _navigating_ plan. 0:30 communicate. (what happened, what effects does what happened have on their flying, navigating and communication. Further intentions) and declaring an emergency (squawk 7700). Now, what effects does the squawk have on atc and their navigating. As soon as a cockpit crew declares a Pan or Emergency atc is advised to remove any airplanes from the emergency aircraft's flight path. While in the usual events of an emergency which are mostly medical, engine related readings and other non we're-going-to-drop-out-of-the-skies-any-second-now emergencies the emergency aircraft is still able to take instructions and manoeuver normally this isn't necessary so that atc can navigate planes around each other, this is a must in such cases where communications are impossible. If possible the emergency aircraft is required to continuously advise their intentions to the air traffic controller so that he / she actually has a chance to remove traffic from the flight path. As to Squawking 7700: Squawking this code can mean absolutely anything. It could range from "my wings have just detached themselves from our body" to "that one engine out of our four has a slightly higher oil temp which isn't exactly in the tolerance the manufacturer advises". While in the severe cases it can be squawked (yes that's an actual word) by the pilots in the lastly known cases the controller advises the aircraft to change their squawk. Next to 7700 there are 7600 which indicates a radio failure of any kind for instance neither TX nor RX (transmitting / receiving) and 7500 which could indicate a hijacking. (If you wish to have much more detailed info on all of that, have a look at Captain Joe's video here :cs-tv.org/tv/video-H4skJviQlMo.html) Last but not least: What is the difference between Pan and Mayday (Emergency): while a Mayday call (side note: mayday derives from french _m'aider_ which translates to _help me_ ) indicates immediate action to a(n) (unfolding) situation is required a pan call only indicates there's an urgency but it _doesn't_ require immediate action (at least at the time). As an example: The case pictured in this video would require a Mayday call. Back in Feburay 2017 VS025 issued a Pan call after they've been hit with a laser and the first officer (luckily not PIC [Pilot in Control aka Pilot Flying]) at the time felt unwell. The pan was issued to clear the flight path of planes and assess the situation whether he needed medical attention or not. (Which he did, which is why they issued a Mayday shortly after). Back to the video: unfortunately the air traffic controller didn't copy that DLA589 wasn't able to receive (hear) any which caused a little bit of confusion, but in the end they handled the situation pretty well. I want to close this post by telling you the anecdote of a Pan call. In March 2017 the cockpit crew of ZL768 issued a pan call after one of their propellers of their Saab 340. They landed shortly after. They only issued a Pan call. Never a Mayday. If you find any typo in there... keep it. been looking at this for the past hour writing this....imgur.com/Z4CS78P _edit: formatting x2_

    • bruchpilot747 No worries... it was well stated. I did learn a few new tips from all of it. I needed to strike that fine line of putting together a decent video on what would at the very least be a rough departure, and adding some of the text might have overshot the mark. It’s one of the first aviation vids I’ve done, despite being an AV geek for years like you... and yeah, I read the METAR / PIREPS too lol... anyway, learning curve for me on this particular brand of video content, so it’s fine for me to take some abuse for the banners on it 😀

    • Same here; no PPL, just an AV geek. But a fairly hardcore one. (I do mean it, I study the airport charts and metar / taf when flying somewhere...) Anyway, in hindsight what I want to add is, that this is'nt necessarily directed at just you. It's more of a general info for anyone who passes by and may wonder why people say it wasn't anything too serious. Sooo yeah, I hope it's not too teacher-like :'D

    • bruchpilot747 Thank you for all of that. I do appreciate educated commentary always. I uploaded another video the other day of an actual Mayday / Squawk7700 which was KC13&8 in Portugal. I did mention this in my pinned comment (or maybe the vid description) that I don’t have a PPL cert, I’m just an aviation enthusiast (and likely future PPL student... just looking for the time to do it). Much appreciated for the comments. 👍🏻

  • "Delta 589 is in severe danger" what is this bullcrap?

  • ATC stayed pretty clueless on the reason for NORDO through the entire event.

  • A set of David Clarks would have been nice. It's all we used in military aviation.

  • Amazing how modern-day airliners are not really equipped to handle a "too-noisy cockpit" situation, such as due to wind. There are numerous technological workarounds for this.

  • I always give a little shove on the handle just to make sure it's locked. Some guys lean out and wipe off bugs and dirt. Don't always latch it properly.

  • someone didn't close the window properly.

  • I love this stuff. On a school excursion and STILL watching it Awesome. Amazing pilots.
