fuck.........

I had all kinds of drug and mental breakdown jokes ready until I saw that head check on the ground at the end


eeesh

I hope those dickbag cops didn't make it worse when they got to him
That shattered collar bone and dislocated shoulder probably absorbed a lot of energy.

Why do people, who can seemingly walk fine down the jetway and everywhere else, have to grab the back of each seat when walking in the cabin?
Tradition?

Left FOD all over the damn place.

The thing about transport category swept wing aircraft is their stall characteristics are real funny, like most straight-wing private aircraft have fairly pronounced stall indications and the lift curve changes direction rather abruptly at the stall point. These big transport category aircraft have a very "flattened" curve and it's very hard for pilots to know exactly where they are, as in if it's slightly before stall, slightly after stall, at stall, etc. This characteristic was screwing things up pretty bad for years as fighter-jocks ran airline training departments and instituted all kinds of fighter-jock maneuvers that don't work on airliners. Pilots weren't reacting before they had an issue, and when they had an issue, they were reacting incorrectly. The FAA had to significantly revamp airline training and mandate advanced upset/high angle-of-attack/unusual attitude training for all part 121 airlines (most airlines that use jets and some that use prop airplanes). The funny thing is that basically what they had to do was go back to what is taught at those very basic levels, but the more subtle nature of these big aircraft was leaving people thinking they could "power out of" stuff and that any loss of altitude during such a recovery was "bad". You are simply going to lose altitude to recover from something like this, but it got so bad they started failing pilots during their checks for losing any altitude, so then they wouldn't want to push the nose over like they should...

So I'm not sure if this article is really portraying stall tendencies in a realistic light. They get much more subtle at the high angles of attack in these kind of aircraft until things go wildly wrong and the aircraft starts dropping wings to 90 degrees of bank or more.
