So what are you going to do if your flight crew had the fish?

For those of us that don't regularly fly flight sims and happen to be on a clandestine Janet flight with an incapacitated flight crew (presumably having consumed the fish for dinner), fear no more, here is your guided tour of how to operate and land a 737-600. Although the video makes it look rather easy, surely it isn't that easy to land and get the hand flying part right on the first try. Hopefully I'll never have to remember the fine details of this video on a flight I'm on.

Hold my beer and watch this........and don't call me Shirley:

I'm not a real pilot, I only play one in video games

Hah too funny, the inflatable auto pilot scenes from Airplane. When 'it' attacks the heroine, grabbing her from behind…

priceless.

In the end of the movie the robots take over, they fly away all by themselves…

My husband is a pilot but he flies only tail-draggers like Cessnas and piper cubs.

you know, I imagine soon airlines will require a hololens in the cabin so that should something happen, a HUD tutorial pops up for anyone who takes over on what buttons to press, how to land, etc no longer the tower blindly trying to talk someone through the process.

If the entire crew eat the same they did not follow procedure.

Why ? Most passenger jets are fitted with autoland feature aren't they ? I'm sure with this and ATC talking whoever is at the stick through the process it's fairly simple these days

But I thought there were rules on flights that the pilot/co-pilot weren't supposed to eat the same meal to prevent situations like this occurring ? Like curious says

Older autoland systems only get you close. The pilot is still responsible for the actual landing. And not all airports meet the requirements for autoland systems.

here's the deal....it's just a plane.......spool em up a little on approach cause it take 4-5 seconds for go around thrust...it all kicks in at 5 seconds till 8 seconds.....you can have several tries that way...just get jiggy with the heavy controls because it's really like driving a truck down the highway in the end, so ya don't have to stick the first try.....just like bush pilot in the Alaska or the Congo...does that take the pressure off....

I would SAVE them all by landing the plane because I would have NO choice.

Doctor: Don't worry, scrote. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick-ass lives. My first wife was 'tarded. She's a pilot now.


I loved the flight simulators, but haven't played with any since 98. Got way into Gmod, Kerbals space program and other engineer type games. Love how realistic they are now, especially kerbals space program, very cool.

And Kudos for using some Airplane! scenes.

This why I just stick with the lasagna.

I'm not sure I'd I could fly a 737 anyway. That plane has two engines. It's an entirely different kind if flying.

Cool video.

This is what my old man just said, he flew Tristars. Although he also said he was always too hungover to eat anything so the situation would never occur.

sounds about right..but why not simply do away with pilots all together and let it all be flown via drones with many redundant backup systems..eliminate the human error all together.

They had a real issue with that when the 747-400 first came out. The autoland would get them down to about 50-100 feet, and the crew would have to take over. But they had to do a certain number of landings to remain current. Those weren't counted towards that total so they'd have to go into the simulator just to fly landings.

In the past, pre 9/11, you may have been able to enter the cockpit to assist but now if the crew is disabled and the door is closed it's not going to happen, There is small window of oppurtunity if one of the cabin crew knows the unlock code and the lock switch hasn't been set or the crew is just sick and can open the door from inside.

But it all hinges on not having a nutter in the cockpit trying to crash the plane.

The knee jerk cockpit door mess following 9/11 is definately a two edged sword.

At this point I think some TVTropes might apply. Like Must Not Die a Virgin or Dying Declaration of Love. There are probably many more.

Remember Jay from Dogma (1999).

Jay: All right, but let's say we're caught in a situation where we've got like five minutes to live, like a bomb or something is gonna go off. Would you # us then?

So, I imagine the best you can do is pick someone to have sex with one last time.
