319 Hot Springs Jet Crash, United FL 2477 Houston Overrun, Fuel Related Accidents + GA News

In this episode, Max discusses the crash of N1125A, a 1991 ASTRA/GULFSTREAM 1125 SP business jet at Ingalls Field Airport in Hot Springs, Virgina. It was the third fatal business jet crash in the U.S. in just five weeks. Five people on board were killed. The aircraft had been purchased just 3 ½ months early. ADS-B data shows it had a normal approach on the ILS down to about 1000 feet AGL, where the data stopped. Strong winds prevailed, and it’s likely that there were strong downdrafts on short final, which may have brought the jet down.

Several airline pilots send feedback about the United flight 2477 taxiway overrun at Houston. They also talked about the FOQA programs which would have provided automatic reporting, if this approach to landing met the airline’s criteria for an automatic go around. Max also reads listener emails related to the ten fuel-related accidents discussed last week.
