Air France 447 - 3.5 Minutes Of Terror

Posted by Zotta Rendevouz

Over two hours long, most of the passengers Flight 447 was probably a case to sleep. Midnight on the first part of a long flight and cruise at 35,000 feet, people were brushing their teeth, reading lights off - trying to get comfortable. Maybe a stewardess walked down the aisle handing out blankets and pillows with a small pillowcase Air France logo sewn.

We will never know because at 12:15 pm Flight 447 from Paris to Rio stalled and fell into the air for three and half minutes before plunging into the Atlantic killing all aboard.

Day Office of Investigation and Analysis (BEA) published its update on the investigation in 2009 aircraft, which killed 228 people.

The recovery of the aircraft's black boxes from 13,000 in the Atlantic earlier this month gave new life to the study and the BEA report gives a full account of his last moments.

Originally it was believed that the sensors on the wings of the aircraft were to give false readings, because the speed wipers. The new data paint a fuller picture of what really happened.

A little over two hours, the two co-pilots had a brief meeting with the captain. They wanted to climb some clouds approaching storm, but concluded: ". We are in the cloud layer, unfortunately, can not go on stage because the temperature drops more slowly than expected, "It was not cold enough.

The captain left the cockpit, and shortly after the autopilot disengaged. Then, the crew noticed the speed sensors had failed. They have responded with advanced aircraft and higher stall warning sounds "twice."

According to the BEA report increased co-pilot and climb angle is increased from 35,000 feet to 37,500 feet. When the stall warning sounded for the third time, they climbed to 38,000 feet, the aircraft stalled and began losing 10,000 feet per minute with his nose still in place and the crew tried desperately to regain control.

Pitching left and right for a full minute, alarm sounds continuously throughout the cockpit, while the youngest co-pilot struggling to bring the aircraft's nose down and get some speed. Although the engines had full power, the pilot struggled to find the right angle and right amount of pressure on the plane to regain lift. He failed and jet remained in a stall.

At 10000 feet, the second officer reported their height. The records show then travels 123 mph. Although all engines are fully operational and command crew, the car will never get out of his stall.

The captain returned to the cockpit of one minute and 30 seconds between when the autopilot disengaged and never touched the controls. Of the two co-pilots age 32 and 37, reports Bloomberg, the young man was in control from the outset, the autopilot disengaged.
