    On May 7th 2019 the NTSB reported the aircraft was recovered onto a barge, as result the NTSB was able to access and recover the cockpit voice recorder.

    Yes, but with a 15 knot tail wind which part of that 2700 metres did they first touch down on ? Remember, runway length behind you....isnít runway !
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

    Paradoxically, the head or tailwind should not affect significantly where you touch down, because you should follow a 3-degree approach (or whatever the ILS, PAPI or VASI slope is) regardless of the ground speed. More tailwind = more ground speed = more vertical speed needed to keep the approach path. If you float a couple of seconds, you will eat more runway in the float. But the descent from 50ft to floating on the runway should be the same the same.

    the recommended max tailwind is 10kts.

    my friend that flew 73's for miami air and knows the crew said, "they're gonna be looking for new jobs real soon." several unexplainable bad decisions...

    How you managed to just happen to have a friend at an airline that has 5 airplanes (4 now) and like 35 pilots is what I'd like to know.

    coincidence.

    i have two friends and one client that are current or former commercial pilots. only the client flies for commercial now, and honestly don't remember which airline.

    the friend that FLEW for Miami air hasn't in a few years. they left under pretty shitty conditions, and wound up suing them. of course, they settled, but for less than i thought my friend should've accepted.

    I think Miami Air has been around for awhile. I seem to remember one of their B-727's had to make an emergency landing in Tampa 15 years or so ago. They pulled up to the FBO I was at. It was either a false baggage compartment fire or the real thing, I never found out.
