Jeff was one of my wife's flight instructors when she was working on her CFI at Gateway College back in the late 80's. He was a really nice guy. The FAA tested the the ATR's de-icing capabilities after the accident and during an icing test conducted using a KC-135 tanker spraying the plane, they almost crashed it when it iced up. -Ski

I was at the airport that day waiting to pick up my daughter and her mom who was supposed to be on this flight but it never made it back to Chicago for the next set of passengers. I will never forget the filling of powerlessness and fear. American Airlines turned off all the monitors in their area and the employees behind the counter would not entertain any questions if you were not flying. Those of us who were there to pick up people just stood there looking dazed and confused. Two and a half hours later another plane from Chicago landed. When my daughter’s mother got off the plane, she was angry and tired. No one told them the reason for the delay. That’s when I told her, ‘the plane you were supposed to be on crash’. Her eyes opened wide with shock and disbelief. I was relieved to have my family; but I could not help but to think of the families in Chicago and the lost they had to deal with. I prayed for them that night. From the day on, I would only book flights on airplanes that have heated wings.

The reason this plane crashed, was because the pilots were too immature, i mean C'mon , trying to fly a plane and talk about girls and going to the toilet!

The AT controller killed these people by taking them down to 8,000 and held them there too long. The heavies should have been diverted to another airport allowing the smaller traffic priority clearance. They killed these people.
Bill Woo (1 month ago)
What am I missing? As I hear it, a plane has wing icing occur not on the ground but IN FLIGHT, and the crew has engage in flight de-icing, yet the plane went down due to wing icing? If that's true, could it happen again? Tomorrow??? Can I take solace that it's only that plane model that's susceptible? Only ATR units? Or did post-1994 technology solve this? Bottom line: could a passenger craft today ice up simply because it flew into freezing rain?
Bill Woo (1 month ago)
7:37 talks of measures to prevent it in the future. Maybe that's enough. But that this happened in as modern a time as 1994 - that's hard to believe.

I don't know how anybody gives these videos a thumbs down. The recreations are very accurate and factual, no annoying commentary, just straightforward captions describing the current situation, and appropriate music. I think they're all very well done and are as accurate, fair, and objective as you can get.

Holy shit! Imagine dying on a flight on your first day on the job. One of the flight attendants did.
Nexus (23 days ago)
Scooby Carr Whilst everyone focuses on it being Holbergs first day....perhaps think about the passengers who may have been: - rushing to get to a dying loved one - about to get married - worried about children who might be depressed - just got free from an abusive relationship - etc etc All those people had lives. Personally, I commuted by plane a lot, but another time I bought a last minute ticket before Christmas to see my boyfriend who was injured from a combat tour and had just been flown back, he already had severe ptsd and his best buddy died on the flight back. He was in a mess, there was a strike coming so it was amazing I even got a ticket plus got to the airport just in time. Everyone has a story.

Cardinal sin #1, disconnect auto pilot, once ICE, is a factor, as you will NOT realize what’s happening , until it’s a tad late, yeah, they extended boots further back,to prevent ailerons from icing over, as was this case, never been on an ATR 72, only the ATR 42, PR to Beef Island TORTOLA BVI, AA had substituted some SAAB. Planes in icing conditions, after this crash. May they RIP !
bart polin (4 months ago)
As usual, an excellent video. I'm still trying to figure out how an ATC Trainee gets a job @ O'Hare. Most people don't realize that just because some of these airlines have the names Delta, American, or United before the other name, it is NOT owned and operated by those airlines. A pilot who hasn't reached puberty, belongs in a glider. Its safer for all, in the air, and on the ground. Besides, glider and military pilots, make the best pilots anyway

All I can think about was that poor girl on her first day on the job being hit on the whole time by the same guy that kills her
Nexus (23 days ago)
Rob Trubiano Yep. He had experience but the cocky, swagger of a twenty something guy is not what’s needed in such a responsible job. I think I heard somewhere he had a pregnant wife too. They need to pair up the young ones with an older pilot who would be less than impressed by such unprofessionalism. Can you imagine being the relative of a loved one listening to that.

I think of this accident every time I am on an ATR 72.

In the US they did restrict them to warmer climes. American retired their last ATR-72s some years ago and now no US airline uses them. They are still very widely used in Asia (Taiwan, India, etc.)
herman greenstein (5 months ago)
I think they still restrict ATR planes to where there is hardly any chance of icing.

They should have known better than to fly through icy clouds like that. Those planes probably aren't build for that.

ATR planes were banned in the United States until the icing problem was repaired. I think the planes fly in the South now, where there is very little chance of icing.

Well, no. He really wasn't harassing anyone. I know referring to the trainee flight controller as chick was not appropriate, and I suppose he probably sensed that she was none too certain of what she was doing, and also saying he was busy with the ladies was not appropriate, he still wasn't harassing anyone, so pull your head out of your ass.

I had a head on collision on the 10 Freeway back in the 90s. I saw it coming, realized there was no way I could avoid it, and I said, "Aw Shit!". My next thought was that my last words were going to be, "Aw Shit!" However, I survived it.

Yesterday one of these planes (ATR-77) crashed in my country because of flying in the same situation and 66 people were killed :(
Joseph Starvish (7 months ago)
I was in holding pattern next to 4184. I flew with both pilots as a Captain. AftRer this crash it was made clear no holding with flaps and once flaps were put in in icing conditions they had to remain in. There were previous icing incidents where on approach the ATR stalled and the crew put flaps in to recover. After this crash they removed the flap overspeed so you could put the flaps in at any airspeed. I landed at Ohare and had to take a load of pax to Rockford and back to ORD all through the worst weather ever and no one gives you any credit for it. Just that you are a worthless commuter Pilot.

Sarah Riedel (7 months ago)
Despite the deicing problem I HAVE to imagine that the pilots' banter and chatter caused them to miss an important detail that could have helped avert a crash with the extra time. I know this was a design and testing flaw but there was a lot of crosstalk going on in the cockpit it seems like.
Gary Doss (7 months ago)
NO, The problem was not so much with aircraft as it was with very very poor air traffic control. No plane should EVER have to wait to land in bad weather. Poor management caused this. The issues with the plane were secondary.

Flying is still safer than driving. Cheese burgers,cell phones and computers are all used when driving. I've seen it many a time and nobody in those vehicles are paying least bit of attention. I'd fly any day. But like any thing else, the more planes in the air, the more shit is going to happen.

So we all learnt a lesson: Never fly in American Airlines, or American Eagle. But still, there are a lot, and I mean a lot of airlines that you shouldn’t fly in, like Spirit Airlines. If you’re one of those unlucky people who fly in these airlines, be prepared for unexpected surprises.
Hell's Cryptic Rose (8 months ago)
Up until a few years ago I lived in the area where this happened. I remember sitting in the kitchen on Halloween night watching TV with my mom when this happened. We heard this loud BOOM and the whole house shook. We thought it was just a sonic boom as they happen on occasion in that area. We didn't know it was a plane crash 7 minutes from the house until the next day. I was in high school at the time They used my high school's newly built gym to hold the body parts in refrigeration temporarily.

Grey Jay (8 months ago)
I've watched a number of these flight simulation channels, and yours is by far the most professional. Time after time, the FAA and the aircraft manufacturers fail in their due diligence, and the NTSB, and the flight crew and passengers, inherit the tragic consequences.

artgoat (1 month ago)
@FrEsH jIvE--A combined 5,000 hours of experience in that particular airframe is far from inexperienced. That's the equivalent of flying that particular plane eight hours a day, seven days a week, for two YEARS, and that's not even their total flight experience. Just their experience with that particular aircraft. That's a lot more flight time than USAF combat pilots get before they are given $100 million fighters (and most of THEM are under 30).
