You might have seen this video already on this channel, but I can promise you that it’s not a reupload. I made this video from scratch and it took me almost a full week of work to finish it. Hope you’ll appreciate my work. Have a wonderful weekend ❤️

Yeah great job . Lets see how does that work ? you spend almost a full week of putting this altogether ? (minus all the commercials ) ? Then you upload it ? and then whoever feels like throwing a shit load of commercials in has a gay old time doing that . Am I on track so far ? And then we try watching your week in the making video without being stuffed to the gills with yet 50 more commercials but too late for that . Or is it that you put whatever piece of shit commercial in that they tell you to do ? Or what exactly ? P O S

The Captain had already died when he left his seat for more oxygen, never returning to his seat. SO, the crash DIDN'T kill him. They had both tried their best, doing all they could during a horrifying event. SO SAD.

If the captain decides to land to Doha which is the nearest airport instead to go back to Dubai.. they would have survived.

If the crew have no oxygen why the F#%* should they have to leave their seats to BREATH. Also, why have they NOT WOKEN UP to the fact, of having an emergency extractor fan for situations where smoke may enter the F#%*en cockpit where nobody can see S#%t......Hello>>>>SMOKE >>>>>>EXTRACTOR FAN>>>>>WTF

I've lived in Dubai and just realized that the crash site was a mere 10 minute drive from my house. Have driven past it hundreds of times, my dogs played in the same desert as the airbase... What a horrible thing to happen to the two men just courageously doing their job.

My heart sunk to my stomach when I read the F/O set the controls to 195 instead of 095. I knew they were doomed and yet so close. RIP

The Captain of this aircraft made the same mistake as that of the SwissAir MD11 who wasted time dumping fuel. They should have gone to Doha and made an immediate landing. Dubai was very lucky this aircraft did not crash in the middle of its city.

I am not a flight expert but common sense should have the pilot land at Doha airport as had been instructed by Bahrain Airport because it was the nearest and safest. This crash could have been easily preventable. RIP

Why does it has only two crew of pilot n copilot without any flight attendant, never heard of it? Why the hell they did not land at doha? It was the nearest airport. Why return all the way to dubai? Why crash conveniently at Dubai Military Airbase? Something is definitely not right? It looks staged not real....

I'm surprised they didn't ditch the plane immediately once they realized the fire was serious. I would imagine if the fire was serious, even though attempting to make it to the airport is standard, you would want to attempt to crash land while you still have as many operable components as possible.

Can I ask why there aren't people in the back to monitor the cargo? Would it have even mattered? I am ignorant when it comes to most of aviation but Im trying to learn enough to at least watch the videos with some level of intelligence. The cargo plane that went down in Afghanistan I understand theirs NOTHING u can do about a 12 ton vehicle breaking loose but this? Maybe someone could have stopped the fire from spreading?

It is always the same story. When the fire alarm starts the pilots wait far too long to explain an emergence and to land wherever possible because they know that the fire can destroy vital control points of the aircraft at any moment.

Arjuna Krishna-Das (5 months ago)
Amazing and poignant videos! Could be improved by a) adding maps showing flight positions and b) getting text proof-read.
In this case, ATC said nearest airport was Bahrain (not Qatar), therefore Dubai must have been quite distant. If the captain had attempted to land at Bahrain, they might have survived. This decision was not addressed in the video.
Tim Duggan (5 months ago)
Both those guys did everything right under the incredibly difficult circumstances...a fire onboard is one of a pilot's worst nightmares. What angers me is at 18:30: When I was flying for Continental Airlines, sometime in the late 90s/early 2000s as I recall, my company installed smoke hoods on all of our airplanes, and we were taught to use them during re-current training. In addition, our newer Boeing deliveries included full-face O2 masks, and rest of fleet was being retro-fitted. I am angry at UPS for not doing the same.

Both pilots ATC tried their best but it was not enough due to fire. Really sad n unfortunate . Just that 195 instead of 095 , wondering if it could have been saved had the brave co-pilot entered 095 correctly ??

They could have just headed to Doha instead of Dubai. Perhaps the story would have been different.

Guys i blame the captain because he could have landed in Bahrain or Qatar but he decided to go to Dubai if he would have went to Bahrain or Qatar they could have survived and the co pilot turned the other just to save other people on the ground R.I.P
Christo Schwartz (8 months ago)
Discovered your videos today. Thanks I subscribed.
Just a question: Would it have worked if the pilots took the plane much higher for longer. Then decompress the cabin for longer and tried to extinghuish the fire completely, or was it beter to land the plane ASAP. I also assume the l-ion batteries maybe did not need oxygen to burn, so maybe the just wanted to land as fast as they could. Very sad that they faught for so long and then the plane just giving up on them. RIP.
