Airline Pilot Breaks Down Airplane Flying Scenes From Film & TV | WIRED

  • Publisert 4 måneder siden

    WIRED

    Runtime: 23:19

    Airline captain Fatima Shafi examines scenes depicting airplanes from movies and television. Why do the pilot and copilot repeat what each other are saying in 'Sully'? Does weight really affect an empty aircraft like in the Tom Cruise film 'American Made'? Do pilots lie to passengers when they say they'll only have to wait, "another 30 minutes"?

    Fatima Shafi is a captain for a major US commercial airline and is also a former avionics engineering officer for the Pakistan Air Force.

My cousin is a pilot and she says that whoever makes the decisions about protocols (can’t remember the name) are considering getting rid of the two-pilot system to save money despite how effective it is at catching human error. I hope that never comes to fruition.

At 15:50 she could also have explained how bad the computer graphics are. The GCI air brakes are just loosely flapping around and there are no push rods or any kind of hydraulics to actuate them. Then, there is a plain wing underneath them instead of the compartment to house all the necessary machanics/electronics to make them do their job.

If you actually watched that piece of crap movie Meet The Parents, he was so obsessed with his bag b/c on the flight over, they lost it for the majority of his trip and switched it with another flyers bag that had allot of kinky stuff in it....Seriously....don't watch Meet The Parents or any Sequels of that trash.

Having worked on and flown in, as well as had control of the oldest and slowest to the newest and 2nd fastest in the RAAF, I'm referring to F/A18-A Hornets and DHC-4 Caribous, sorry, low and slow wins everytime. Only fixed wing I've ever seen hover is a Caribou, only took 49kn headwind.

One excellent movie to review that has a lot of true pilot experiences is "The Pilot" with Cliff Robertson, 1980, if people want to know what flying airlines was like (back then), this is a very realistic movie that shows what the system is like. Ciao, L

So I just watched this back to back with the other video of the F-35 former fighter lady y'all did, and someone in one of her movies also talked about the coffin corner, and she said she didn't know what it was, but this commercial airline pilot does, so go figure.

19:00 When she says losing an engine is not an emergency is accurate. I was on a air taxi in the Caribbean once on a small 3 engined aircraft. During the flight there was a minor issue with one of the engines and as a precaution the pilot shut it down. There was no noticeable loss of performance and none of the other passengers knew. The only reason i found out was because the pilot was a good friend and he allowed me to sit in the right seat and i saw him close the throttle, then the fuel air lever so i asked him what was up.

Imagine being on the runway and the plane's not moving. Then you find out it was because the other pilot asked her where they were going and she said,"I don't care, you choose."

I thought trimming an airplane was putting tinsel in the cockpit. 😉 My father flew B-727 for Eastern. There were a lot of flaws he pointed out in movies. Always cool to hear an experts point of view. He loved Airplane! better than Airport. Love to see a review of some more parodies.
