Please support this channel by following me on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/allecibay American Airlines Flight 965 was a regularly scheduled flight from Miami International Airport in Miami, Florida, to Alfonso Bonilla Aragón International Airport in Cali, Colombia. On December 20, 1995, the Boeing 757-200 flying this route (registration N651AA) crashed into a mountain in Buga, Colombia, killing 151 passengers and eight crew members. The crash was the first U.S.-owned 757 accident and the highest death toll of any accident in Colombia. It was also the highest death toll of any accident involving a Boeing 757 at that time. It was surpassed by Birgenair Flight 301 which crashed seven weeks later with 189 fatalities. Flight 965 was the deadliest air disaster involving a U.S. carrier since the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988. Five passengers, all seated within two rows of each other, survived the initial impact, but one died two days later of his injuries.

Theres ONE Big Stuff upp/Mistake which as Professional pilots they ignored (a Warning Sign) und which may have Ultimately Saved them xxxxx

So few years back add to this that it was common for pilots to drink alcohol and fly. Good thing these days they put an end to that. We hope. I was confused myself watching and felt lost in the dark at low altitude and I know there is mountains all over the place. So which is it runway 1 or 19??? Still trying to figure that out myself. Knew 3 passengers. RIP 965

Don't remember any plane ever survived the "Pull up. Pull up..." in this series. Want to see an exception if there is one.

Doesn’t an airplane have GPS to allow the crew to know at all times where they are in relationship to their surroundings?

Looks like Capt. Tafuri Tafucked up. One thing more than anything else that caused this accident is the Capt. selecting an unintended way point on the FMS and executing it without realizing it....completely not following protocol of double checking it on your own and then asking your co-pilot to confirm it before pressing execute.

one thing i like very much from channel it is the facts only video format old school documentaries are filled up with a lot of bullshit drama which is very distracting. here we have straight to the meat approach very good indeed. there are some flaws like the lettering but still ok. fun and learning, however the sad outcome that sometimes happens for the loss of life and the efforts from the part of the pilots to save themselves and the passengers

The terrain warning should warn at least 2 minutes in advance.... does not seem to allow too much time and warns only at the very last moment, usually to late.

shouldn't the air brakes disengage automatically when the throttle is pushed full forward? I mean it seems so obvious.

Had family members on this flight. My cousin and his daughter survived. I lived in Colombia at the time and I remember my parents rushing us to the hospital when they got rescued. I was 5 years old and my 5 year old cousin had just lost her mother and brother in this flight. She was laying on a hospital bed with sever injuries. Seeing this video brings back memories. Crazy how simple miscommunication and not properly checking your instruments can end in disaster for so many lives. All these factors could have been avoided but destiny had deemed it so as to make this tragedy happen.

Anyone out there still buy the laughably sick story that on 9/11/01, four amateur fools flew at 500mph at 35000' from the east coast to the midwest, and then BY LINE OF SIGHT returned to Virginia and the East Coast, striking targets with pinpoint accuracy (as if they had maps and compasses spread over the instrument panel and high end optics as they looked for ground landmarks)?? Seriously. Smh.

Penguin1290 (4 months ago)
This shit makes me so mad. The more of these I watch the more times it turns up that the pilots don't have a fucking clue how to actually FLY A PLANE (with a couple outstanding exceptions). They're just operating a computer, and more often than not they're piss poor at it. Why would you hire a bunch of 50 and 60 year old men to run a computer system. I sure as hell wouldn't.

FARC Kennel! Total loss of Situational Awareness. .......Seconds from Disaster........ I just cannot believe my ears, nor my eyes regarding what is unfolding from this video. The FO is far too complacent, and is in total belief that the captain has all the answers. Short cuts = short life. Pity so many people suffered fatalities because of this. Tragic.

OK, so I get that Captain Tafuri should have confirmed his input to the ROZO way point, but if you're gonna automate the flight, build in some basic checks,like, oh, I don't know, if you make an input that deviates from the original flight plan, you get an audible warning saying so? I'm not even a pilot, or aeronautical engineer, or anything close to an aviation expert, and even I know something so basic? Does anyone ever use their brains anymore? Geez, it would have saved everyone on board, unless the pilots were complete morons, or impaired somehow

You are in a mountainous country. Rule #1 GET ALTITUDE higher than EVEREST! Rule #2: PAY ATTENTION TO ALL YOUR CONTROLS ...ALWAYS. There are 3 of you at least in the cockpit, ONE PAIR OF Eyes AT ALL TIME GLUED on the controls. Let the others in the cock pit fiddle faddle with the maps, slats, breaks, etc. but YOU the Pilot have got to remember to disengage the breaks and other things when situations change or become complex. THINK! K.I.S. Keep it Simple. These guys were just so incompetent. Here is what they should have said: To the Control tower , we screwed up due to poor communication with you. We will not hit R or T points like we were supposed to do, Be more clear next time, OK. Now then, Please advise or "Here is what we plan to do..." NEXT, get the plane at a HIGH Altitude taller than Everest whenever you are that far out , in the dark of night AND IN A VERY mountainous nation. ALTITUDE people, AL-TI- TUDE!

Another simulation of this flight did NOT fill in the details here about the conversation in the cockpit and the waypoint choices. It did show terrain maps, and it also mentioned that the airbrakes were not retracted.

Kent Betts (6 months ago)
The video fails to mention that while the pilots were approaching Columbia, they were discussing the minutia of union rules and allowable duty hours. The conversation was extremely distracting, mostly due to the pilot, who was trying to show off his knowledge of labor rules. This conversation eventually led to the accident, since instead of discussing labor rules they needed to be planning their approach. The level of performance by the flight crew was below the necessary professionalism needed in their role. The airport staff at Cali was a little sketchy. If the airplane has inertial navigation and a DME, it is not essential to report passing a VOR station. The flight was basically goofy.

We were in Plantation FLA, on our yearly visit, never forgot this accident, but it all starts with FARC as having blown up the 1st nav aid, so they would not have tried to go back, then the ,language problem, then COLOMBIA claiming the PILOTS WERE DRUNK, hell, after they were in the tropical heat your stomach load starts fermenting, so they had to go back, on that claim.. there were survivors, but sorry for those whom never made it RIP.

I'll tell ya,' every time I hear the word 'forgot' as mentioned here it really pisses me off that some idiot's incompetence causes so many deaths. I think that along with flight hours experience ALL pilots should be required to have a minimally acceptable IQ score before being considered as the senior flight operator on ANY plane. The verbal exchanges with all concerned sounded like none had an IQ signaling anything above average. They actually, the Captain especially, sounded as mature as teenagers out for a sports event on a weeknight.

I wanna be FIT! (8 months ago)
I’m not a pilot & don’t understand the jargon. My question is “If you’ve never flown that route before, how would you know you’re flying into a mountainous area?” Are pilots briefed on flights they will be working & told what to expect - as in mountains in the area? If you’re flying to a country in which you don’t speak the language, why not have a pilot that does? Flying at night the problem or were they just too preoccupied or distracted? I apologize if the questions are ridiculous, but is this ALL pilot error? 4/3/18 @ 12:19P.
BornSerious (8 months ago)
I wanna be FIT! Agree. I like these videos but this one had lots of jargon I didn't recognize and the commentary was faster than usual. And I kept getting the captain's name (Tafuri) mixed up with the location (Tulua).
Mizzy Roro (8 months ago)
It just seems so weird how professional pilots including a captain charged with the lives of hundreds of passengers could be so lost in not knowing where they are, where they're going or what they're Doing? This is not the wide plains of Kansas. Take your job and the lives you are carrying behind you more seriously. These 4 bars on your shoulders shouldn't come easy for good reason.
john paul (8 months ago)
greed by the airline caused this accident how tf the airline is okay working with an airport that doesnt have a radar and not using full english communication the only guilty here is the airline by exposing the crew and passengers to this for a few $$$ ,colombia was such shithole in the nineties glad now is one of more stable south american countries
bruzote (3 months ago)
This so-called shithole country has real people doing real travel, as it did in the 90s. Would you have had another airline with even lower safety standards fly out of their instead of a major airline? If the airport was open for business, the public was going to fly. AA tried to give them travel and their aircrew failed.

Tazer183 (9 months ago)
Just because you're lost at night doesn't mean you should be flying low and crashing. As much as you want to be fair to the pilots who apparently had alot on their plate they screwed up.
Peter Beedle (9 months ago)
Surely if you are lost the first thing you do is fly up, not left or right and then figure out exactly where you are. If ever I'm lost when driving I pullover somewhere and find out exactly where I am and where I need to go, none of this "on the fly" business"!

Situational awareness and all that the pilots were dealing with is one thing. But really, there were 156 people on that plane that were betting EVERYTHING on the pilots NOT flying the thing into a mountain! Inexcusable.

Just another case of overwhelmed pilots by the systems, but the manufacturers and airlines "had to" eliminate one third of the flight crew, as always, for only one "reason" : the Damn Money.

Sorry for the victim's and their families. The pilots and could not maybe understand the tower, I guess. But when the voice would say pull up pull up, or terrain. Maybe they were too late to pull up, or something.

Allec, these videos are amazing, great work! Subbed. As another commenter once said...you feel like youve watched a whole movie after every one of these! Im sure you have many requests. But wouldd you consider doing one on flight 5191 out of Lexington, Kentucky? Dont wanna spoil it, but I dont figure it would have to be a very long vid. I drove past the area of the incident about an hour after it on my way to work that morning. Will never forget that drive. Thanks!
