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!

    • I was at Charleston the whole time. Loved it! Stayed in CHS throughout my Delta career and still here.+Heather Eldridge

    • Yeah, I know an Air Force E-3 pilot that told us about flying touch and go's with a window open because it would get hot on the flight deck (Tinker AFB in the summer is damn hot). Still, I'm guessing it's a bit of a shot if it pops open unexpectedly. Code Brown moment for sure.

    • +Patrick Bartosz You're right. I pulled out my dusty manual. I'd also forgotten that some had an aux tank which carried an 6,000 lbs.

    • +Gerard Moran The 72 sure as shit dumps fuel.

    • Gerard Moran That was a female pilot? When leaving to China I wonder?

  • 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.

  • They are not is severe danger! there is no 500mph wind. It is just noisy. Get the facts right please

  • these 2 guys were in the cockpit with the pilot and copilot

  • So stupid. Keep the sensationalist commentary to yourself. They weren’t in extreme danger. Both crew and atc worked well together and got it done.

    • mo439470 I asked you specific questions.

    • Scott Anthony Is all that supposed to make your video less dishonest and shitty?

    • mo439470 Is that how they teach manners down there in Georgia? I mean, I could easily say something like “Maybe you shouldn’t be so impressed with how Lottie sings” or “Oh wow, Olive can act like a bird” or “Gee, Katie could really stand to lose a few pounds” but, you know, that would just be rude. Sorry you didn’t care for the commentary that went along with the vid. Maybe you can teach me how to be perfect like you? Can you? Can you please teach me that? Should I start by getting myself an old Subaru to fix up? Is that where the road to perfection starts? Please clue me in so I don’t ever make a vid you don’t like ever again. I will have trouble sleeping now knowing I’ve disappointed you.

  • sry but what is up with this text animation.. almost unreadable.. and disappears quick. Please never do that again.

  • Next time they should just turn up the A/C instead of opening a window...

  • 500 mph winds just after takeoff? Maybe if he took off into a tornado.

  • How are they in "severe" danger? They are in Class B airspace and squaking emergency. Too much hyperbole with the comments.

    • Yeah they had this...but the FACT that this was handled so readily without incident, that there was never any serious danger, is itself a testament to the ATC and pilates. They are some amazingly solid folks...

    • +Darren Dupre so you tell me if it would be cool to have that

    • +Darren Dupre are you a pilot or wanna be? I know I said serious didn't say server danger first of all anything can happen OK that's the first thing ik in training 5000 ft or 10 I don't want a window open in my face and am just hitting 100 or 140 knots they are about reaching in the 300knots cause over in class B over a certain ft up you have to be hitting 250 knots or higher

    • tevin thompson The person who uploaded the video did. That is what we are talking about. A depressurization situation at 7000’ is not an issue. Wind blowing into your face and disrupting communication is, but the cabin depressurization to 7000’ is not dangerous. In fact 7000’ is about in the range of what a pressurized aircraft at cruise altitude would be pressurized to anyway. (Someone with more in depth knowledge can chime in, this is just from a quick Google). You mentioned pressurization specifically, that is what I am addressing.

    • +Darren Dupre and I didn't say server danger I said serious emergency

  • Kudos to the pilots for the airmanship.

  • Its not an "Exclusive" its public information stop taking shit from public domains and labeling them as your own unless you own delta you have zero "exclusives" to this audio

    • +Scott Anthony just off the top of my head VASAviation did this and many more and since the only reason this video is coming up on my recommended list im assuming its because i watched the video they made i can also google the incident and probably find all the news outlets that have done a story on this with the audio. My point is im not saying you didnt put work into this im saying stop saying this is an "exclusive".

    • Nick Luther How many other videos have been done on this incident? How many others compiled the information after reviewing the multiple audio streams it required to find the pertinent parts of this event? When you have that answer let me know...

  • No mayday or Pan Pan Pan ??

  • 👌🏼

  • Yes

  • The flight was not in severe danger. Boeing (and I presume other manufacturers also) test for this extensively. It was uncomfortable and not ideal, but there was no real danger. ATC would have vectored any conflicting traffic out of the way had there been any. They're not stupid. They would quickly catch on that they have a plane that isn't communicating and is squawking 7700 so would talk to the traffic that is communicating and get them out of the way. All said and done, this incident was well handled by all involved. Great to hear the pros getting it done.

  • This is true. In an emergency, the emergency aircraft gets whatever it needs. Whatever the tower wants doesn't matter in an emergency situation like this, especially when the pilots can't hear anything because of the open window they can't close. In this particular situation, it would have been perfectly normal for pilots to ignore multiple radio calls, since one, they can't hear them, and two, they need to focus entirely on flying the plane, making contact with the tower only when it's absolutely necessary.

  • Click-bait...this was not as big a deal as you made it out to be. Next time check your information and don't post overly dramatic graphics over the videos. Just important information. It wouldn't have been a DISASTER! You must be one of those conspiracy theorists who likes bodies all over the place.

    • +Scott Anthony I've read all your comments and know what you've said. I'm not concerned with that right now though. First you called me a douchebag. Now you call me a condescending prick with a superiority complex. Both of which I'm not. Oh...better not forget I'm perfect too. Far from it, actually. I think you're thinking more about yourself. I look forward to your responses because with each one you get nastier and angrier. Sometimes intent within a comment on the internet can be misconstrued. Something about my first comment has pissed you off to no end and has turned you into a butthurt name-calling child who instead of taking criticism like an adult has turned this around to make me look bad. Later on you can delete all this to make it go away. I've taken screenshots of everything anyways. You don't want comments like mine? Stop posting shitty videos and try not to be a dick to other people who may comment on them. Have a nice day.

    • Matt Whiting Dude... are you really that imbecilic? I stated to you (this will be at least the for the second time now) that certain parts of this vid I could have had more knowledge on. The part I’m responding to isn’t your “opinion” (which I’m using fairly loosely here) rather, it’s to your first sentence whereby you are barking orders. I can take constructive criticism... that’s not the issue. You’re a condescending prick and you need to be checked on that. You didn’t strike any nerve in me son, I’m merely pointing out your superiority complex which is clearly an issue on your end. Perhaps produce content of your own to teach us plebs on how to be as great as you lol... I’d love to see that. Thanks for the rest of your comment which did have some value even if your delivery of it sucked completely. PS- as a general rule, channels that just create “clickbait” content don’t generally reply. So looks like you were actually wrong on your leading assertion. Guess you aren’t as perfect as you believe you are. 😃

    • +Scott Anthony Sorry, not sorry. I don't apologize to plebians who imply that I'm a douchebag for stating an opinion. I watched the video and I read the comments before I commented myself. You have every right to not agree with my opinion. You also have the ability to not respond to my opinion. The fact that you did means that something I wrote struck a nerve somewhere. Kind of like you're a know-it-all who can't be told he's got his information wrong without throwing a hissy fit about it. Just get your facts right, don't spread fake news, and be nice to people. I'm done with this.

    • Matt Whiting Constructive criticism is what you see as a pinned comment on the vid. There are many aviation enthusiasts like myself that are not pilots, but still fascinated with how it all works. Some pilots did chime in, and provide constructive comments which I gladly, and wholeheartedly appreciated. It helps us non-pilots learn. Take a peek, and then you will see why I replied as snarky as I did on your comment. I might not be a pilot, and might have a lot to learn about aviation, but at least I’m not a D-Bag about it. You might take a lesson on that. I don’t mind being wrong, and I will listen to those with experience (I even asked for feedback on areas that were incorrect). It’s all about the approach. Now say you’re sorry.

    • +Scott Anthony I am totally aware of what my options are. Your ever expanding avalanche of glorified misinformation intrigued me. Your apparent knowledge (or lack therof) of airplanes made me chuckle. Planes don't fly at 500 mph 7,000 ft above the ground. At cruising altitude they do. But not that low. And the pilots didn't do anything spectacular. They did their jobs and what they were trained for. So please don't get butthurt over some constructive criticism about your video. Less drama and more actual facts would make it better.

  • A question, why are cockpit windows made to open aft ? Shouldn't they be made to be open forwards to avoid sliding and opening becouse of the wind, if something got misrigged ? The fact that they open to the inside is understandable ( so that the inside pressure will help keep it in place, still ram air is strong air :) ).

  • times like this ATC needs Pilots mobile number and text them.

  • "Severe Danger" what a load of BS. This is an emergency sure, but in no way is the aircraft in danger for a well trained and qualified crew.

  • Text is way too dramatic, makes video feel silly and clickbaity

  • 250 kts Max, if that. And I imagine they slowed quickly after

  • Why do cockpits have windows that can open?

  • What game is this from?

  • You can really detect the distress in the pilots’ voices. Really good how they immediately selected squawk 7700 so the controllers could see they were in trouble. As usual, great job by the controllers, very calm and professional. Good job it ended well.

  • Imagine a fly flying into yours eyes at that speed! Horrific...

  • 500 MPH wind... please.... more like 170 MPH!

  • When your old David Clarks would have come in handy.

  • Boeing actually tests each new aircraft type with a side window (pilot or F.O.) open as part of their exhaustive tests. Of course it's impossible to pressurize. But the aircraft remains perfectly flyable. Albeit noisier.

    • +Scott Anthony Very much welcome. Never be afraid to ask questions to pilots/etc. I believe pilots and potential pilots should not only be students but teachers/mentors too. The trolls don't understand this. A real pilot/A&P/etc. will never attack your questions and enjoy answering or correcting in an encouraging way.

    • +Scott Anthony I don't claim to know all about the operation of an airliner but I'm glad I could convey what I have known and learned and read about, myself. Airliner windows are very different from car windows and the windy cockpit you see in movies is incorrect unless it's explosive decompression at altitude, but of course it's a bad situation if you can't hear ATC or pressurize the plane (unless you are Aeroflot). 7700 is appropriate in that situation. Also, most airlines around the world use the lighter weight headsets and I've only seen military use the heavier David Clark headsets in similar Boeing/etc types, which may have been easier to communicate with in this emergency.

    • Rangel Legnar I keep checking the comments on this vid to hear from an A&P person... regardless, I do appreciate the first hand knowledge of the PPL cert holders (and commercial) that have provided important / detailed opinions... very much appreciated! 👍🏻

    • Rangel Legnar Thx Rangel! Yeah, I mean I completely get that this situation at least didn’t have the added issue of cabin depressurization at altitude. The one thing I wasn’t sure on (and it’s been pointed out by a few others that I was wrong for saying this flight was in extremely dangerous situation... although I’m pretty sure it was still a serious situation, and there’s some trolling just going on by those folks)... I had assumed that a 737 after rotations and ascending would be at a steadily increasing airspeed and when the window popped open (or was just never closed) the air rushing in would create a vortex of wind in the cockpit much like it happens in a car driving down the highway and you open only one back window (you get that very strange and loud popping of air that throws stuff all around your car if it isn’t locked down tight). So it looks like I was somewhat incorrect on using the phrase “extremely dangerous situation” however, that said, it was still a serious enough issue to Squawk 7700, request immediate vectors back, and the pilots had extreme difficulty communicating with ATC. So even though the trolls are trolling me on this (I don’t mean you BTW), if it wasn’t such a big deal, I’m sure the pilot / first officer would have just kept on flying to their destination without turning around back to where they just departed from... right? 😂

    • +Scott Anthony I don't believe there's any specific airspeed (?). True versus actual indicated. Structural limits are already at around 400 knots for most airliners but rarely would one see those *indicated* speeds and at altitude not only would it be impossible to pressurize the plane but the cold would pose an issue too. A plane like a Boeing 737 is *designed* so that airflow will easily pass over an open side window. I am not an A&P but I do have a PPL and at least *some* knowledge of this but best bet would to ask a person with Airframe and Powerplant experience.

  • Sensationalised shit. They would have had no trouble controlling the aircraft from losing a cockpit window and no one was in "severe danger". Also, the legalise in your video description is obnoxious as fuck.

  • This is interesting, the copilot indicates that “we have a window open,” not a window blowout or failure. I wonder if one of the pilots failed to secure their window.. does anyone know the cause?

  • You "guess there's an emergency"! Come on man, step up and take charge! Three priorities, in order: aviate, navigate, communicate. You may never make it to the second priority.

  • Aviate navigate and communicate . Training pays off .

  • You really need to put captioning on this. I finally gave up halfway through cuz I couldn't figure out what was going on and half of the audio was not too great either.

  • Outstanding, Scott. Thanks!

  • What is the aircraft registration?

  • The commentary on the video are so over the top. "500 MPH wind." "In severe danger." "Flying 'blind'." You must not be a pilot.

  • Thank you for the video and the great comments

  • I am glad nothing happened and that they landed the aircraft safely.

  • What a effin joke this video is... there was no "severe danger" or "lost window". I hope you choke.

  • 500 MPH wind my ass.... get real... there was NO, and I repeat NO!!! 500 MPH wind. Morons.

  • Negative due to these dumb "dramatic" lines. The plane was never flying 500mph and will fly safe even with a broken window. "Pilot tries to keep the plane flying" ... what a bullshit.

  • And that ladies. And gentlemen is professionals at work. Good crew, great ATC. Very nearly textbook, but the real world isnt the same as a textbook. Great training example.

    • +Bernard Pritchard Well, he managed to determine there was a problem with minimal communication (not even a mayday) held the ground traffic, ensured there was nobody flying near the emergency aircraft as they couldn't hear his vectors, and got the services rolled out. I'd say that was pretty good. It's not every day an emergency presents itself unannounced, and you have to work out what's going on. Remember Sully? He could have landed that plane, but wait, he had to work out what his options were, in the heat of the moment. So yeah, great ATC, and good crew.

    • Andy Owens Great ATC? Great ATC? Did you listen to the comms going back and forth? I don’t think the scope dope ever checked his display---he didn’t catch the 7700 squawk ( which comes up in flashing red on his display), and had to be told repeatedly the nature of the emergency. He is too slow on the uptake to be in that position.

  • Any cellphone footage available?

  • And they weren't in SEVERE DANGER. What's with all the fear mongering in this video?

  • Piloting first communicating later.. nice job crew

  • "mis-rigged?" BS. like you can raise or lower windows on aircraft? BS.

  • Boeing should put electric windows on their jets.

  • Flying comes first before communications!

  • Well done to that crew. I flew out of that airport in 1998 on a Delta MD-80 to Chicago Ohare . It was interesting because they didn't use a tug to push back the airplane . They started the engines, powered them up and rolled forward into the wheel chocks, bounced back and pulled reverse thrust and backed the plane up. Hi from Australia.

  • This actually did happen many years ago in the uk... One of the main front windows ejected from the aircraft as it climbed.. if i remember rightly it happened as the aircraft pressurised... The captain or first officer was partially sucked out of the plane only held in place by his foot which got caught by the yolk... The plane was successfully landed by the remaining pilot but amazingly the guy was still alive despite being exposed to freezing temps outside the aircraft and a his head striking the fuselage!

  • ATC seemed abit confused

  • excellent job how many souls on board?

  • Thank you! Great graphics, good info, well done! New subber. :)

  • He leveled at 7,000. Speed limitation below 10,000 is 250 knots. He wasn’t at 500 mph. Departure should have heard the crew the FIRST time and simply given vectors to intercept the final approach course and cleared to land. At the time of incident, it was not a catastrophic emergency. At FL30, it would have been a substantial emergency due to pressurization loss and much higher speed.

  • Dont forget the ATC role in this. Clear, unhurried understandable advice helps the pilot remain calm throughout this emergency. Great work by all concerned.

  • A bit overdramatic, you should just stick to the audio and map and cut the flying graphics and silly comments. Not very professional and most fox "news" like!

  • That’s why I couldn’t be a pilot. Me and stress don’t mix well.

  • I can’t watch this ... captions ruined it... severe danger? 500mph winds?

  • Where are you coming up with 500mph winds on flight deck? That aircraft was moments after takeoff, nowhere near 500mph.. cmon man..

  • Command-level aviators are among my favorite types of people! The vast majority are really cool cucumbers and truly brilliant people with HUGE responsibilities! Every time I fly, I just want to shake your hands!

  • Is this in real time?

  • 500mph you say at 7000 feet? Full of crap. Quit hyping nonsense.

  • Just so you know, at the end, the more typical wording in order of priority is "Aviate, Navigate, Communicate"

    • Dan You know, I actually knew that, and oddly, I did type in “flying first” instead of Aviate. Rookie mistake on my end.

  • Good audio. But certainly a manageable emergency, little overly dramatic on the captions but to each their own.

    • AMB1534 Consider this one a “learning curve” for me on presenting an in-flight emergency vid... I pinned a comment on this vid where I’m asking for, and taking the constructive criticism. I would rather present factual info as best I can, so I did learn a few good lessons with this vid.

  • There is a MAYDAY air accident investigation video about a captain sucked out of the cockpit due to a window replacement wherein a mechanic used screws too small to hold the window in place while the BA aircraft was in cruise luckily the copilot grabbed his arms to prevent him from falling through space. For as long as it took to drop below 10,000 all aboard were in danger. Somehow the captain was held by his arms until the aircraft landed. He was battered and badly bruised, and I think the copilot had either a broken arm or other injuries. A flight attendant who was in training as a pilot was also involved.

  • Please stop with these captions

    • JudeFS It’s my first vid doing an in-flight Emergency... if I do another, I will attempt to do better at it. I got some good feedback from many that left constructive comments, so there’s hope yet. I gave it a shot... it was merely something I was monitoring live at the time, and pulled this together shortly afterwards. Do I get credit for the attempt? 😂

  • Cockpit windows CHECKED and LOCKED!!! Another checklist item that was just taking up room on the checklist. I can promise you that these two pilots WILL check their windows in the future.

  • "Severe danger" is a gross overexaggeration. Unsubscribed

    • soccerguy2433 So That one caption was incorrect. How about the rest of the content. How inaccurate was it?

  • This happened 13 minutes after takeoff. NO WAY they were already going 500 mph. Definitely under 275 considering they were still in Class B airspace. Fun fact: This plane won't do 500 mph at that low altitude especially with the weight they were carrying. They need to be up real high with little wind resistance to make that speed.

    • Blll D I had assumed air speed based off radar / ADS-B data + headwinds. I realize now this was not a good caption to add in. Regardless, it still wasn’t ideal, and nothing like having a window open at McDonalds waiting for a 10 piece McNugget meal lol

  • Any Pictures?

  • 1:37 - severe danger? lol Noisy but severe danger?

  • I hate to do this but if this happened in. Asia Indonesia or Asian countries this plane probably would’ve crashed just because their pilots do not know how to fly during emergencies

  • I love reading the comments on these videos.

  • I'm sure this is a known type of oversight/failure but you can hear the emotions in their voices. They were scared. This video gave me goosebumps.

  • 1) Aviate 2) Navigate 3) Communicate

  • Will always do a windows slide check for the rest of their flying lives.

  • Nice job by pilots... Why does ATC have to bother pilots in Emerg situation like this 4:43 with asking them to change freq ? Why cant dont just all ATC controllers involved go to the active current freq pilots is communicating on and work the plane down... so not bother pilots with these secondary tasks ? ATC has no good idea really whats happening in cockpit during most emergencies and should do Everything to lessen burdens on pilots flying the plane. Plus there is possible good chance of radio, equipm malfunction, or pilot error switching to a diff freq than one on and losing all comm with pilots. Only reason might be - would be if plane is going outofrange of that controller's freq.. but here they are still close to airport after takeoff within lots of freq range. just asking.. thanks

    • I believe it is somewhat common for emergency situations like this to have atc request a clear separate signal for the emergency plane to ensure that only the needed parties communicate on frequency. If this was more serious, the direct communication would reduce the risk of other planes flying into the area unaware accidentally talking over one another. $0.02

    • Bill Exactly! ATC was in the up-and-locked mode. What, am I supposed to be watching my screen? What’s that flashing red symbol mean?

  • Aviate, navigate, communicate - in that order.

  • Stop using flex seal Delta on your windows.
