Air France Flight 358 was an Airbus A340-313E, registration F-GLZQ, on a scheduled international flight from Paris, France, to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. On August 2, 2005, just after landing at Toronto Pearson International Airport at 4:01 p.m. EDT, it crashed into nearby Etobicoke Creek, approximately 300 m (980 ft) beyond the end of the runway. All 309 passengers and crew aboard the Airbus A340 survived, with 12 people sustaining serious injuries. The accident highlighted the role played by highly trained flight attendants during an emergency.

It was both the pilot's fault instead of putting it down they could have easily aborted the landing gone around and landed back again especially when the threshold marker lines were crossed before touch down.

First officer "Naud's" name sounds like a muslim. What else can you expect from one of these mindless animals? An incompetent fool who put the whole plane and passengers at risk.
Never hire a muslim. For anything

I really wish Delta would kick out Air France from Skyteam and replace them with a safe airline. And the Paris airport is a nightmare to transfer through, the baggage handlers lose luggage on purpose as part of their semi permanent working strike.

This landing result is from a pilot with less than 5000 hour on the A340. He forced the plane down despite it being too high, too fast, and to compound his error he activated reverse thrust 17 seconds after landing gear touched pavement. Notice the Pilot ordered full-flap during the later stage of landing which probably prolonged or slightly lifted the A340 approach altitude. The novice pilot over relied on A340's automatic "Medium Braking" to bring the plane to a stop, instead of relying on his better judgement which came 17 seconds too late. As commercial passenger jet become increasing computerized and automated, too many airline pilots have become passive, lazy, or ignorant while hiding behind the technology.

This is very disappointing, because the title promises a miracle, but the video does not follow through! Nothing about the amazingly fast and disciplined evacuation in a record 90 seconds in spite of both rear slides inoperable due to fire, the mid left slide punctured by debris and deflated, one right slide malfunctioning and some passengers forced to jump for their lives, just before the plane burst into flames. THAT'S the miracle!
Electone_Guy (4 months ago)
You don't mess around with Southern Ontario thunderstorms. The high humidity air and cool breezes off of the Great Lakes make for nasty weather.
The Obsessed Gamer (4 months ago)
this crash was one of the most incredible miracles i have ever seen, because evacuating 309 passengers in less than 90 seconds? planes where put through this test by letting all the passengers escape the plane using half the emergency exits, but you think most people would be in panic and stand still.
this was a real miracle
Mike12522 (4 months ago)
Four out of 8 exits on 358 could not be used. Despite that, the 10 flight attendants on 358 evacuated 297 passengers within 90 seconds. It was solely due to the flight attendants' skills, training, bravery, and haste that all survived. Fire trucks were on the scene in an astonishing time of just under one minute.

I've now found myself to be the critique of the problems as I see them for the handling of ALL involved in these aircraft accidents. And for this one:
Happy there were No fatalities. As for the Captain and First Officer? They should NEVER be permitted to be in control of ANY aircraft AGAIN EVER except for one they'd be flying by themselves with Nobody else aboard. And even then they should be severely scrutinized because of the possible victims on the ground should they again crash their own aircraft. Better to just ground them FOREVER!!!

well, the weather makes it zero room for error by the pilot , so when he did one like the delay in reverse it resulted in an accident,,, but to tell in normal cases some pilots approach fast and some delay in reverse yet they still manage to compromise

I'm in Toronto and recall the event but unfortunately CANNOT remember the details which is now frustrating because this video provides no helpful description of the rescue. This omission naturally begs the question: how were there NO fatalities considering not only the break-up the fuselage during the crash itself, but the poor chances of safely evacuating ALL 309 people, 46 of whom were INJURED, from the jagged remains of the trisected fuselage, up and out of the ravine's challenging terrain during a severe storm, and ALL OF THIS successfully accomplished BEFORE the plane was finally destroyed by the FIRE? The REAL story here is: How the HECK did they manage to do THAT?

I remember this very well. One of our drivers at work radioed in and said a plane just went off the runway when he was passing buy. I saw i later. You could drive past the airport on the highway and see the plane down in the gully.

Can anyone explain the logic in delaying the deployment of thrust reversers? I've been on flights when pilots do this but in dry conditions. Seems like the thrust reversers would stop the plane better - especially in wet conditions like this.

Why didn't the aircraft commander tell the pilot you blew the landing , now take it around and try it again, instead of allowing him to proceed when he had to have know it was a botched landing.
Paul Villamor (8 months ago)
That's very sad. And these were trained pilots. A bad combination of foul weather and pilot error. I suppose even autopilot wasn't possible to land this plane automatic
desiguy55 (8 months ago)
should have called this "runway flyer". they were flying over half the runway.
Mike M (8 months ago)
How could the pilots not know they were so far off the mark? Half way down the runway and going to fast? With all the automatic warnings I usually hear on these big jets, airbus tells them nothing? I won't be climbing on any of these Euro jets again. The hidden joystick control in the co-pilot seat isn't very smart either. Stay away from Airbus. Fly Boeing.

2:12-2:20 since when did the PIC RECEIVE orders? Also, nice touch showing the gear lever being lowered in the sim!
Add-on: 3:52 okay seriously why is the FO and not the PIC making that decision?
M.J. Leger (9 months ago)
Why didn't he go around? Interesting, why so late on the reverse thrusts? He used up all the runway since he landed half-way down it, the runway could have been slick but that wasn't the problem, bad approach, wrong speed, thrusts, he should have gone around when he landed half-way down the runway. Maybe not, since we don't know the weight, many factors. Some Inadequacies here, nonetheless. But glad they survived, though they lost the aircraft! I'm not sure 3 months suspension for the FO was enough, (he WAS yelling "put it down, put it down" but I hope that time was spent in the flight simulator! I expect the Captain went out on pension, but that was the end of his flying career, as it probably should have been. A bit more than just bad luck there!
