Pilot crashed in San Francisco Boeing blinded by laser



One of the pilots of the South Korean airline Asiana Airlines, a Boeing 777-200 crashed in San Francisco, claims that he was blinded from the ground by a laser during an approach. This information will be verified by the United States National Transportation Safety Administration (NLTS).

Investigators found that the evacuation of passengers was not organized quickly enough. According to the instructions, the crew had to organize an evacuation within 90 seconds after the vehicle stopped, but this was done only after the engine was reported to the captain. “We need to understand what the personnel were guided by,” said Debora Hersman, head of the NUBT.

It was also established that the first fire engine arrived at the wreck of the airliner two minutes after the plane stopped, ITAR-TASS reports.

At the moment, flight attendants and flight attendants of the aircraft were interviewed, except for three people who are in the hospital. After the plane hit the ground during landing, its tail was blown off. In the hole in the fuselage on the flight strip threw three crew members.

Boeing 777-200, flying from Seoul, crashed on July 6 while landing at San Francisco airport. There were 307 people on board. Two passengers were killed, 182 injured.

    I hope our aviation figures will draw the necessary conclusions, and our staff will act more competently, although judging by the small number of victims in the United States, they worked well too!

      Yeah, the figures did.

      Kadyrov banned the sale of laser pointers laughing

      Interestingly, delivery from e-Bey or from the territory of other republics in Chechnya is also prohibited? winked


      According to the Federal Air Transport Agency, 30 cases of blinding of pilots by laser beams were recorded in six months. Fortunately, none of them ended in disaster. According to law enforcement officials, the most active "laser shooters" appeared in Rostov-on-Don. Recently alone, there have already been six laser incidents: five with passenger planes and one with a police helicopter.

      Abroad, the first cases of "blinding" were recorded back in 2007. Last year, this kind of dangerous entertainment became widespread, albeit without serious consequences. In 2007, the United States passed the first sentence to the "blind man": a 47-year-old hooligan was sentenced to 20 years in prison for a systematic hunt for aircraft under the article "terrorism". After that, American lawmakers amended the federal aeronautics law. Now the "blind people" are sentenced to a fine of up to 100 thousand dollars or sent to prison for five years.

      But it doesn’t help much. In the United States, up to 2800 laser attacks began to be registered annually, in the EU countries - 2000. And most often, helicopter pilots suffer from laser attacks. They fly low and slowly, sit down on the site vertically. It’s easier for them to cause injury than for pilots.

        And add the latest news:
        During the flight, the crew requested permission for an emergency landing due to hydraulic system failure. The fighter plane was escorted by two Israeli fighter aircraft.
        Miracles will continue.
        Below Komrad correctly noticed.

    Oh, and the bastard is lying. And the captain Costa Concordia is not guilty of leaving the ship prematurely, and he had nothing to do with hitting a rock, the rock itself shifted towards the ship. And the Boeing commander also found an excuse. With a fright, I pressed the brakes. His words should be confirmed by crew members who were in the cockpit.

      But if this is true, then things are bad. Because it turns out that every yo * ok can make a plane crash. It is necessary to firmly suppress this, otherwise the next time there may be many more victims.

        You probably remember about cases of attempts to blind Russian pilots. Fortunately, none of them ended in disaster. In my opinion, the commander is trying to get away from the showdown. But "black boxes", recorders will show everything, and speech recorders will also tell what happened there. Fortunately, they have survived.

    Once, during a night landing at Sheremetyevo, I looked through the window and saw how a bright green flash lit up in one of the Moscow courtyards and a ray began to run, obviously trying to get into the plane, only the distances from the plane were very large, it was virtually impossible to get into it, especially into the cockpit and besides, exactly in the eye, and you have to manage to light both eyes, the blinding of one role does not play, closed and continued. My only option to realize the idea of ​​blinding is possible only at a stationary point on the opposite side of the runway, when the plane goes straight towards you. But for this there should be no longer just a pointer, but a design of the type of a full-fledged gun with an optical sight, and the action of the beam itself should ideally be short-lived, no more than a second. In my case, the "attack" was 2-5 seconds, and that was enough to determine the exact position of the shooter, even for such a delitter like me. If there will be a special service that will hang around in a helicopter and transmit coordinates to ground services, hooliganism will be caught very quickly.

      Why the helicopter will come down and the balloon with the whole camera angle. And give pilots goggles for landings and all business.

    I have such a pointer, only I play with her with a dog))))) calmly brought from Thailand, no problem. sent to the sky at night, the beam is clearly visible, it will reach the plane, but it is almost impossible to get into it.

    Or maybe it wasn't a laser at all. It's just so convenient to hide your mistakes or criminal negligence, hardly anyone will be able to refute if there were no witnesses, or all were "ours".

    Well, you still have to manage to get into the eye with a few km, and indeed there are 4 pilot eyes in the cockpit (2 in the first and the same in the second). Otmazyvatsya go.

    It is a pity that the entire top of the United States was not on board, like an airplane with Kachinsky in 2010. Let someone think my cruelty is excessive, but it’s real - WE REACHED already ...

      Once upon a time we even had a "laser pointer" for this. Like this:

    Kadyrov took measures in his republic on laser pointers.
    But state legislators are silent, engaged in smoking and constant tightening of traffic rules.
    Or is there no such problem?
    Or all, nevermind until the thunder strikes ?!

    In our newspapers, they write that the pilot landing a Boeing 777-200 in San Francisco did this for the first time on this type of aircraft at a given airfield.
