I have seen a very nice, detailed, and well written documentary of this accident. A list of what-ifs were presented. What if the pilots had returned the landing gear to the down position? Was just one of many. Very sad story.

If I was a pilot I would use as much runway as possible no matter how much weight is on my plane . Won’t hurt the plane and their won’t be any chance of stalling

As a former military maintenance tech on the aviation side, it just saddens me that these "sillyvilians" working on commercial aircraft can perform such shabby work, thinking that planes are like cars and you can just can pull over the side and change whatever. How many of these videos shows maintenance related instances causing death and destruction??, way too many!! Here in this example anytime a flight control/engine change or adjustment is performed IAW applicable manuals, a ground turn/Functional checkflight is performed (without passengers) once the crew comes back and signed off aircraft as "safe for flight", then the plane can resume normal operations. Unbelievable that such short cuts driven by "time=$$$" are done disregarding the consequences and shattered lives left behind...

Sigh. A bureaucracies fail + a preflight fail. Sloppy and high tensioned cables should have been checked out, especially when the fix was pencil-whipped like this one. Using paying public as QA works for Gates but not on vehicles with paying customers. In auto racing, each wheel gets a weight check. As a GA pilot, I NEVER TRUST ANYONE and check things myself. Knowing your cg shifts and total weight is critical. If that check is not made, NATURE WILL SUCCEED IN KILLING YOU! You start getting sloppy and Nature will catch up with you.

Flight control problems are every pilots nightmare! This is yet another good example of why you should do your job correctly, like your family's life depended on it (or, like your boss was watching.) About 150,000 people die every day, and I'm sure many, if not most, of those 150,000 were not expecting to die.  Heart attacks, massive strokes, aneurysms, plane, train, and automobile crashes, violence, risky behaviors, animal and insect bites and stings, suicide attacks-- all of these ways can unexpectedly end your life in an instant. So now you're dead, then what?  All the world's religions believe in one of the following after-death experiences: 1. Oblivion in a sea of cosmic nothingness, without any conciousness, forever. 2. Reincarnation as either something better or worse than you were, until you have qualified for eternal one-ness with the ultimate reality. 3.  If you haven't worked hard enough and/or done enough good to either, qualify for, or, become worthy enough, to enter Paradise, then you'll have to go to a place where you can continue working until you do qualify and are worthy. 4.  Everyone goes to Paradise because God loves everyone and is good. 5.  Immediately (from your perspective) after death, you stand before your Holy and Perfect Creator God and are judged by His Perfect and Righteous Standard; His Perfect  Law of Love, summarized by Jesus of Nazareth, by these two questions: "Did you love God with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and, did you love your neighbor as yourself?" There are basically only two types of answers.  The first is: "No, I haven't.  But look at all the good I did do [list of good works], that has got to count for something, right?  Besides, I'm not really that bad a person, and your so good, you'll forgive me, right?  I really am sorry..." Those who answer this way will be judged guilty because they still have to pay for their crimes and crimes against God all carry an eternal, life-sentence, in a terrible place called "Hell"; a place that feels like "eternal fire" and that is probably because those in "Hell" are separated from the God, who is the Source of everything good and pleasurable.  And no just judge, human or otherwise, will let you go simply because you are sorry, or did lots of good.  When you break the law, you have to pay the penalty. The other answer is, "No, I did not, because I could not. But Jesus could and did, and He promised me that I would get what He deserves (dwelling with the Source of everything good and pleasurable in Paradise forever), because He already got what I deserve (suffering, misery, and death on a Roman cross.)  You opened my eyes to my sin problem and I have really tried to love you and my neighbor as best I can, but I have often failed, as you know.  I deserve Death and Hell for sure, if it weren't for Jesus and what He has done for me...."  Those who answer like this will be judged innocent.  Why?  The law has been satisfied by Jesus.  Your crimes have been paid for by Jesus.  How?  God came to Earth and was born as a man, Jesus of Nazareth. Being both fully God and fully human, He kept God's Law of Love perfectly, for you. He then was willing tortured and killed by Roman crucifixion, in your place. You broke God's law, but Jesus paid your fine-- you are like the Jewish slave camp prisoners during WWII that were purchased by Herr Schindler so they could be freed from being transfered to a NAZI death camp. A judge doesn't care how or who paid your fine, so long as it's been paid. Only this last, after-death experience has any objective, falsifiable evidence.  Proof comes via the best attested, and best preserved, ancient documentation know to man (the four "gospels", which are eyewitness accounts or the testimonies of close associates to the eyewitnesses). God became man in order to rescue you, because He originally made you to dwell with Him in Paradise forever. Salvation is God's free gift to you-- you cannot earn it.  Ask God to "red-pill" you so you can understand your sin problem, then, get baptised, and trust your only Savior: Jesus the Christ.  Trust Him like you would trust a parachute-- and just believing a parachute will save you from a fall is not enough-- you have to put it on in order for it to save you.  Christ lived, for you.  Christ suffered and died, for you. Christ ascended, for you.  Christ will come again, for YOU!  Trust comes through hearing God's Word, so try reading "John", and then "Romans", for starters. Then, see if the evidence is reasonable yourself at: http://knowwhatyoubelieve.com/believe/evidence/)

I remember this one well, completely avoidable, sloppy work kills, weight limits are serious.Can you imagine the guilt the workers and supervisors carry for the rest of their lives for signing off on this flight. In the case of the Alaska Air DC-9 that went down in the Santa Maria Islands off LA, you know that you and your fellow managers, came up with the policy to check off greasing the elevator jackscrew, but you didn't take time to inspect it through a plate in the horizontal stabilizer. They always had gobs of grease on the screw and you have a backup of aircraft, management says have to get out of the shop right now. I'll skip checking this one and put it on the flight line. Only this "one" had a jackscrew as dry as the Sahara, the threads are stripped, and the "stop" bolt at the bottom of the jackscrew is coming off.

The plane tookoff with a tailheavy shifted center of gravity. Cutting back on engine power after topping out from a forced nose high climb was the biggest mistake the pilot made. Cut the engine after a nose high stalled manoeuver near the ground. Should have throttled up and flown out by power aided by the dive to clear the ground...would have been still been tail heavy, but at least there is a chance to recover.
TedBronson1918 (1 month ago)
All too often it is shoddy maintenance practices and "shortcuts" that cause these accidents. Not only should maintenance crews be trained, they should have to pass qualification tests every year. If I had to do that as a soldier, they should have to do it because so many innocent lives are at stake - and the test should be hard. How the hell can a pilot succeed when they stack the chips against them with incompetence ? FAA and NTSB need to be more involved than just analyzing the accidents.

Weight and balance is important. Under the “Maximum Weight” isn’t the only factor.

The FAA is almost as useless as congress. They talk a great game of 'public safety'. But it's really about accommodating commercial airline profits. Surprise, surprise........

Yet again the common thread that runs through MANY of these accidents is that the FAA is a worthless POS organization, that routinely ignores NTSB safety recommendations because of general governmental incompetence and a "too cozy" relationship "serving" the airline industry.
GroomLeader (2 months ago)
Geez, what sloppy procedures. it always takes some kind of tragedy before they get off their backsides, and fix it. Instead instead of actual weight limits, using a guessed average weight amount? Weight limits that were set in 1936? Having a maintenance worker who had never worked on a Beechcraft? DUMB, DUMB, and DUMB.

If the difference between an adult and a child is changing the permissible weight, they're cutting things too closely. I know that air flight requires smaller safety factors than bridge and building design just to get planes into the air. Even so, there should be a safety factor. If they really believed that they needed to do the calculation, they should have checked more carefully. If the calculations were coming that close that often, the airline should have removed a few seats from the back of the plane. For a supervisor to skip a check on a trainee mechanic's work is beyond comprehension.
Roy Kliffen (2 months ago)
Amazing that airliners do not have an electronic check on take-of weight and position of COG. It shouldn't be difficult to have load-measuring devices on the landing struts and with that input calculate both variables.
Emin Muradov (2 months ago)
I work at the operations side at dus airport and the planes DH4 and 8 use 17kg per bag and 85kg for every person. It's not optimal because a flight let's say to Nuremberg has much lesser and lighter bags (they use ballast) than a flight to FCO which a lot of bags, much heavier. The calculation is erratic and could lead to these situations. Every company should use actual figures.

ChibiGingi (3 months ago)
Not meaning any disrespect to the captain here, but saying that a passenger being a child should negate the extra weight added from the heavy luggage is sort of like thinking that drinking a diet coke instead of regular coke will make your downing of 5 doublestacked hamburgers a healthy alternative. Just... no, it really doesn't work like that? Edit: Not to say they deserved the fate they got. RIP, of course. But that logic in thinking just leaves me scratching my head...
ChibiGingi (2 months ago)
Eds7570 Okay, when it’s explained to me like that, I understand her line of thinking now. Thanks for taking the time to do so. Having watched a lot of these kind of videos and documentaries, it feels like poor maintenance is a running trend in these kinds of disasters and that wasn’t something this pilot, or any, could anticipate. It’s rough...
Eds7570 (2 months ago)
Her thinking from what I understand is that since the baggage handlers were concerned about overloading the plane by mentioning the extra heavy bags, the extra heavy bags + weight of 1 child will = roughly the weight of 1 average weighted adult passenger. The pilots were using average weight calculations given to them by the airline, not actual weights. Which were 175 lbs per adult plus 20 lbs per piece of luggage. Even if you calculate the weight of the 2 extra heavy bags as being around 75 lbs each, plus the weight of a 12 year old girl say being around 70 lbs, you get 220 lbs - 175 lbs so that is an extra 45 lbs not calculated for which wouldn't make a difference. She was a very good pilot and knew what she was doing. Both pilots weren't at fault, but it was a pretty sad accident, knowing it could've been easily prevented by proper maintenance.
Scott McLennan (3 months ago)
Sad how many times on this channel we hear that the NTSB found that some recommended measure was never implemented by the FAA and that this led to a crash.
Eds7570 (2 months ago)
The plane may have been recoverable if the pilot(s) allowed the aircraft to go fully inverted after it pitched over 127 degrees, then pulled gently back on the yoke, full movement of the elevator in this position may have arrested the descent, and then roll it back right side up and lowering the gear at the same time. Lowering the gear immediately after takeoff may have also saved the plane, shifting the CG back more to normal. The pilots had less than 1 minute to think all this through during a chaotic maneuver they didn't have control over, before the plane crashed. It would've taken an exceptional pilot well versed in this aircraft and experienced in aerobatics to recover it, if even that was possible. Both pilots were not in any way though at fault here. RIP to passengers and crew.

Flight Channel (3 months ago)
I really like the idea of using actual weights on the calculation for the MTOW but how do you want to figure it? Put up a scale in front of the check-in counter? I mean, for the bags it's clear but as far as I know public discussions about people being weighed before flight have always been dismissed as "discriminating" so far, altho it would save lives.
Eds7570 (2 months ago)
No need to weigh the passengers, although this is really the most accurate way to do it, but it's time consuming and of course, people will likely resent it. All the airlines had to do was update their average weight from 175 lbs to 195 lbs. This was a sorely needed update since Americans have gotten more heavy down through the decades. The pilots were only using the info given to them at the time. The major factor in this crash was due to faulty elevator controls, if the elevators would've been working properly, the plane could've been saved even though the plane was overweight.

DeepSouthernTX (3 months ago)
Do you guys feel unconfortable trusting a 25 and 27 year old pilots? They may have good training and enough hours but at least one of them should have more flying hours.
Eds7570 (2 months ago)
I wouldn't, the Captain, Katie Leslie was a pretty good pilot with over 1800 hrs, her co-pilot, Jonathan Gibbs, had over 700 hrs, as stated in the video. So one of them did have more hours. Being younger too, your reflexes are faster than say, an older pilot in his 40s, and 50s. While they didn't have the experience of a seasoned commercial pilot flying for a major airline, say with 5000 or more hours, I believe their training and experience more than compensated for flying a Beech multi-engine turboprop aircraft. This accident boiled down to poor maintenance causing the elevators to not work properly. The pilots were given outdated standard weights for each passengers, allowing the plane to be overloaded without both pilot(s) knowing this, also mentioned in the video. Even if both pilots were somehow aware their plane was overloaded to an extent, the Capt didn't think it was cause for alarm. Since it turned out to be a problem after all, the faulty elevators didn't allow the pilot(s) to correct the high angle nose up attitude, causing the plane to stall and crash. Sad and tragic to say the least.

Depcom (3 months ago)
The mechanic, his supervisor, and the head of the FAA should have been stuffed into the wheel wells of a C-141 full of paratroopers, flown over Hell and Purgatory drop zone at Fort Bragg, and dropped out of the wheel wells as the paratroopers are exiting the plane. If they land on top of an inflated parachute and make it safely to the ground, they will be allowed to go free. If not, then gory gory what a helluva way to die!
Zoomer30 (3 months ago)
I saw that everything was fine until they raised the gear, which threw the CG of the plane "out of envelope". Should have quickly lowered the gear again (hindsight ia 20/20).
Sara Beth Williams (3 months ago)
Yeah, that may have helped, but would it have made a difference? It looks like the CG being thrown off like that took them by surprise, and must've happened pretty fast. Whether lowering the landing gear back down by the time the airplane's CG was "out of the envelope" may have been too late due to the malfunctioning elevator and the extra 550 lbs in the back. It really looks like this flight was doomed from the get go.

Jeebus, drive time from Charlotte to Greer is 90 minutes or so. It probably takes longer than that to drive to the airport, park, walk to the check-in, go through security, walk to gate, wait to board, board, and taxi. I get it, some school kids were on a trip and they can't drive but this wasn't a charter. It was a regular flight. Why was this even a flight? I think the pilot being told by the ground crew, who handles a lot of bags, that a few were really heavy should have triggered a re-evaluation. She was young and confident, I am old and cautious. There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old, bold pilots. Maintenance is to blame too but the captain is responsible for their aircraft.

Jeffrey Crace (4 months ago)
I don't mean to trivialize these tragic events but I am wondering... What if the pilots had had more time and asked all of the passengers to gather around the front of the plane (I know this is totally unrealistic because they would never ask the passengers to unbuckle their seatbelts)? Would that have helped? Also, in a low-altitude stall, wouldn't you try to increase power?
Sara Beth Williams (3 months ago)
My guess is it would because it would've shifted the weight of the plane's center of gravity forward and brought the nose down, but because they were still at a low altitude, it wouldn't have mattered. No time to do this anyway.

"We need your actual weight." "How dare you!" "It's for your own safety." "I'll sue!" Overloaded plane crash: "You should have asked for actual weight!"
Eds7570 (2 months ago)
I'll agree with you on that one, but the way to have avoided this, embarrassment from passengers and threats of lawsuits was for these regional airlines to update their average weight calculations from 175 lbs at the time, to 195 lbs. This was long overdue, it sadly took the crash of this flight for midwest to finally update their average weights for passengers. This accident was really due to faulty maintenance on the aircraft which could've been easily avoided. The plane being overloaded, was another factor that did contribute to this crash but not directly.
IamScoHo (3 months ago)
My point was that the airline is damned if they do, damned if they don't. Ask for accurate weight? Get the lies people tell themselves as an answer. Ask for a measurement? Get sued. Have an accident? Get blamed for not doing the first two.
Sara Beth Williams (3 months ago)
The airline did this because getting actual weight takes too much time for 19 passengers, asking all of them to step on a scale to record the data. In other words, it's done for efficiency.

M.J. Leger (5 months ago)
I can remember years ago when I flew in a commuter aircraft, the pilot asked me my weight. (He also told me he added 20 pounds per person!) At that time, the average weight of a woman was 115 to 125. Today, with obesity pandemic in America, the average weight of a woman is 166.5 pounds, the average weight of a man in the 1960s! So pilots of commuter should probably add 40 pounds weight, at least, for both men and women. Men weight 30 to 35 pounds more now than in the 1960s. Both sexes are only 1 inch taller than 50 years ago so the weight is surpassing the height/weight ratio! Today, when someone flies with me as pilot, I add 30 pounds to what they tell me unless I can tell that isn't enough (and I studied bariatric medicine so I can estimate pretty well!) -- then I add more!. No one tells the truth, even if it could save their life and you tell them exact weight is necessary for you to know! So we all add weight to passengers (in smaller aircraft) because we don't want to crash! (We also distribute the weight among seats if necessary.)
M.J. Leger (5 months ago)
Where was the superior/boss mechanic who should have checked the work of the person in training? If he has never worked on a certain aircraft before, his work MUST BE OVERSEEN and checked! Cables turned the wrong way should be apparent to a pro, who would have been able to see that the cables were too tight and would prohibit lowering the nose of the aircraft. in flight...those 9 previous flights were indeed, extremely lucky! And an overweight aircraft with faulty cables? Recipe for disaster!

Eds7570 (2 months ago)
When the nose pitched up at an abnormal angle during takeoff, she was trying to get the nose down by pushing the yoke forward, but it was useless due to the elevator malfunction. Her telling the co-pilot to help her by also pushing the yoke forward was a normal response. When I first read the caption on the video, it seemed to me the pilot just freaked and became helpless, but that wasn't the case here when put in the right context. Basically though, it is something you don't want to hear from a pilot.

Rip to everyone onboard, I wonder if they tried to trim full forward? Or is trim automatic in this aircraft? I know the affects of aft and forward cg, I’m just curious if trim would have helped?

They did trim the plane when it was pitching nose up, it didn't make any difference. Even if they would've lowered the landing gear, and extended full flaps, it may not have mattered. The plane extreme pitch up attitude, I'd say probably in the range of 45 degrees, due to it's center of gravity being out of balance because it was over loaded. Being over loaded, exceeding max weight also caused the nose to angle up in an abnormal fashion. Even if this plane was somehow recoverable, they had only about 45 seconds to correct the problems they were having.

It may have, plus lowering the landing gear, they didn't have much time.

What's scary is that I live in Huntington WV and routinely fly from HTS to CLT on small turbo prop planes since that's the only option. It's always the worst part of any journey. Bumpiest and scariest flights.
