    At that point they were 1/2 dot above the glide slope so 1 red 3 whites is a reasonable picture.

    Of course, with 1500 fpm down, that 1/2 dot didn't last much.

    It certainly looks like it is in an extreme sideslip angle to the left, unless there is a huge lot of crosswind from the left.

    Rudder in the opposite direction? I don't know, but I tend to think...
  3. I agree, but that critical point is Vmc only if...

    I agree, but that critical point is Vmc only if you manage the rest of the things correctly. If not the critical slow speed where control will be lost will be more (and can be quite more) than Vmc.
  4. Or.... Vmc assumes that you are using full...

    Or.... Vmc assumes that you are using full rudder, that the inop engine is feathered, and that you are using the correct bank angle needed to keep zero sideslip: about 5 degrees into the good engine.

    I agree with the article in general, but why can't anybody be neutral these days and everybody pushes an agenda instead?

    That he talks about airports captured 1775 is the least of the concerns.

    I didn't check which version it was. Your document listed that special mission ER as having 15 seats, though, which makes me suspect it was not an ER since the accident plane reportedly had 11 seats.

    When the question is "could be" the answer is almost always "yes, it could".

    Now, I don't thin so.
