    Wonder why the thumbs downs. Seems to me the Captain was hell bent on landing the thing.

    and, why don't they make runways a bit longer ? Just another 100m or so would have saved this plane

    I love the videos of your channel but can you not all cap the letters? It's really difficult to read :/

    My mom and I landed in the middle of a hurricane in New York City once, in whatever the midsize intercontinental jet of the 1970s would’ve been, flying in from Latin America. Other than some sideways lurches, it was actually pretty uneventful — just like landing in heavy rain, maybe even calmer than some other landings we’d had. (Once, while landing at Miami Int’l., our jumbo jet’s right wingtip grazed the tarmac and all the oxygen masks popped down, even though we were basically on the ground, that was wild. And once we landed in Latin America on a single engine, the others had failed en route but close enough to our destination that we just landed where intended.) I kinda have to credit my mom for always keeping her cool and acting all blasé, like “This is normal!” so that I wouldn’t freak out, it wasn’t until years later that I realized what we’d experienced had been unusual, even scary circumstances. (Although I did notice people crossing themselves and whispering after the pilot announced we were flying on one engine but would soon be landing.) My point, though, is: these big planes are really well-equipped to handle scary weather, it’s remarkable how smooth the ride feels even when you can see the windsocks being whipped around outside while snow beats past the windows horizontally. I’d sooner trust a jumbo jet than one of those little regional puddle-jumpers — first you’d have to pry me from the boarding area’s orange plastic chairs, then pry each of my ten fingers gripping the plane’s door on the way in, then tie me to my seat, then knock me unconscious with a food tray, just to get me into one of those.

    He should have gone back to Taiwan .Wind shear is very dicey , imagine controlling a 400 ton monster by hand in a tropical storm at Kaitak airport – the worst possible permutation while landing . Take-off is comparatively less difficult.

    This landing was doomed from the start – too high, too fast and landed too far down the strip.
    I've been in an out of Kai-Tak numerous times – into both the 'old' strip, "dodging the buildings" and the new one – but they both have (and had) the problem of a lack of length.
    To get a 747 down on the present strip you HAVE TO get your main gears on the floor on, or as close to the threshold markings as you can, which requires a LOT of arse-crimping courage and a VERY good eye for distances.
    This pilot did neither – he hung around FOREVER on final, flared late and then – as if that wasn't dangerous enough, autobrake was disabled and he "forgot" to arm the reverse thrusters.
    I sincerely hope that China Air pulls his licence…….

    i wouldn't blame this mostly on the pilot error. i would blame it on this crappy small airport surrounded by high rise and mountain. that's why they close this airport down.

    Kaitak airport. Hongkong is being battered by Storm IRA, with wind shears on the final approach. The captain is warned about 5KM visibility

    Kai tak was closed due to a difficult approach. Pilots feared it and called it Kai tak heart attack

    I like that you don't try to animate the crash. We don't need to see that understand the reasons for the accident.

    Wind shear can compromise landings greatly. When I was stationed at RAF Mildenhall in England, there was a sister base RAF Lakenheath within a few miles away. Both bases runways are set up perpendicular so that whatever direction wind shear was the respected bases could use that air strip to land their assigned aircraft to land no matter what direction the wind speed was coming from.

    I love how I can watch your channel with volume off. I don't bother others around me as read and keep up with your visuals.

    Please get rid of that depressing music at the beginning. My favourite bit is when the music stops and I hear the plane instead. It adds nothing to your vids man.

    This incident remember me about flight TAM3054 in Brazil. But, unfortunately nobody survived.

    I flew into Kai Tak in 1981. Exhilarating. I think there was a big X on a hill for the approach for the pilots.

    imagine people living in those high rise building
    any aircraft could crash into it due to the sharp turn to approach

    Well uh, the landing was actually pretty decent. They made it on the runway despite seriously challenging weather. The fact that these guys didn't immediately brake should have been an immediate go around though. The pavement was wet due to the weather and windshear could potentially be giving them a tailwind. They needed every inch of runway they could get and they were just screwing around waiting to brake as if the hard part was over or something. You're not done flying until the engine is off. Congrats on atleast not killing everyone. Although perhaps it would have been better to simply not have landed at that airport? But I guess when you're dealing with a Typhoon, you gotta land somewhere…

    If the pilot had been Joe Biden's son, we would have never heard of this incident since Democrats are above the law and are not to be criticized.

    After having watched The Flight Chanel for the past several weeks, it seems to my statician mind, that flights operated by Asian airliners have a far greater incident of crashes.

    Note to self: don't fly Asian airlines.

    If I'm gonna end up in an aircraft incident I hope it's a runway overrun, there's always a better chance that "Everyone Survives" 😉

    I am sorry, but does a manual/policy really need to spell out to have better communication to the co-pilot? Seems to me that after these horrible events, they come up with these “add ons” to CYA. There is a theme with so many of these events. Poor communication, risky pilot behavior by flying in poor weather and a passive co-pilot. I know these examples are just a tiny few from the wonderful pilots and other flight crew out there. I am proud to say that I have never had a horrible experience and want to hug all of the wonderful flight crew when I fly. I appreciate all of the flight crew that work hard to keep us safe!

    I would have loved to be in my office that day, on my break.

    Me: Sips coffee
    747: lands
    Me: Ohhh a 747! The best!
    747: Ends up in water
    Me: Well it was bound to happen sometimes.

    Glad everyone survived! Would have loved to see the reactions from people jn buildings

    This is why I like to fly with airlines that don't cut corners for extra money. I'd much rather have my flight divert to avoid bad weather than have it try to brave the storm (quite literally).

    Typical China, they do something wrong and instead of admitting they did something wrong they just try to cover it up.

    why did they not divert to another airport?…..this is pure incompetence of the crew….they should have been dismissed and jailed.
