TransAsia Airways Flight 235 (GE235/TNA235) was a domestic flight that crashed into the Keelung River on February 4, 2015, shortly after takeoff from Taipei Songshan Airport, 5.4 km (3.4 mi) to the west. The TransAsia Airways flight, operated with a ten-month-old ATR 72-600 aircraft, was flying from Taipei to Kinmen (Quemoy), a Taiwanese island off the coast of mainland Fujian, with 53 passengers and five crew on board. There were 15 survivors.

That last line from the cockpit is a mixture of disappointment, sad realization of the mistake made and the obvious result... and in a way, it's a bit comic...? Like in 'shaming yourself after doing something stupid' way I mean.

Commercial pilots are trained (or should be) relentlessly on how to handle engine failures in multi engine aircraft as well as in stall recognition and recovery, yet they never seem prepared for them when they happen (often right after takeoff when engines are at or near maximum power). I guess it is what comes of flying thousands of uneventful flight hours. It seems they were not alert; they were not on their toes. The basic procedure is always as follows:

Funny how they say "flying it's the safest there is to travel" iiiiiii.dont know about that I see hundreds of videos of people getting killed in shitty ways while flying

But you don't see the hundreds of thousands of planes that make it to their destinations with no problems every single hour of every single day.
Edit: There's a website where you can see all airplanes travelling around the world live somewhere, it's pretty cool.

I wonder if maybe the throttles should have lights on them that flash or change color depending on what the engine is doing.
I thought there was a flight in the USA with this same issue, the bad engine not identified correctly. A vibration sensor??

Why did it stop over at Madrid, when it was a flight from Barcelona to Gran Canaria? That's like a flight stopping over at Manchester when it's on it's way from London to Mallorca or a flight from NYC to Atlanta stopping over at Boston.

Lots of really bad "pilots" working the western pacific. Sometimes too much automation leads to a loss of flying skills, like the inability to identify a dead engine...WTF! Sadly these "Captains" with over 10K hours of flight experience forget basic airmanship??????
Booze and/or dope involved here. On a side note Allec, when using a simulated realistic panel try to get the "readings" accurate. Airspeed Indicator was approaching the barber pole as these idiots stalled out into the river. Good job sir. Complacency kills.

It goes to show you can have a good number of flying hours and still stuff it up. Some people should never become pilots. Experience is one thing but natural skill and good decision making is another!
John Be Bad (7 days ago)
They have lots of hours of things going correctly.
Flame out engine maneuvers are something they get tested on periodically. They are only tested against these kinds of problems during recurrent training and certification. The captain apparently barely passed his recurrent testing. He needed multiple times to pass with minimum proficiency. Too slow to react correctly to emergency situations.
beaconrider (3 months ago)
Unfortunately too many pilots rely on the machines to fly the aircraft, to the point that their hand flying skills deteriorate. Small regional air carriers seldom have expensive flight simulators where they can practice emergency procedures.
Krumple Themal (4 months ago)
A flame out isn't that drastic, why did the pilot anxiously go to shut down mode before confirming the identified engine that had the problem? Or did he just mix up left and right? Why would you go to a complete shut down when it was not necessary? A pilot that doesn't know the difference between right and left, shouldn't be driving a car let a lone a plane.
Al Grayson (1 month ago)
Krumple Themal, I tell the driver "Turn right next light."
She gets in the left turn lane.
"Why are you getting in the left turn lane to turn right?"
"You said 'turn left at the next light'."
"No, I said, 'turn right at the next light'."
"No, you said 'turn left at the next light'."
Should she become a pilot? She turns left when I say 'right'. She turns right when I say 'left'. "Directional dyslexia"?

You ask, at the very end of the video, during the closing credits: "ENJOYED THE VIDEO?"
I must confess, only a fucked up pervert would "enjoy" a video such as this.
Perhaps you might reconsider your promo pitch?
Bodragon (6 months ago)
(0:59) - "take off roll", not "takes off roll" But you knew that right? Of course you did! Only messing! (Stand by...)
(2:14) - "begins", not "begings". Only a typo. No big deal.
Anyway, that's me done for that part.
Early on I started to think that these pilots were not responding or behaving in an expert or professional manner. My doubts were borne out by the conclusions drawn at the end of the video.
Even with both engines dead they still had a chance of an emergency landing but it seems that everything they could have done they didn't, and everything they did do, they did wrong.
The blame here lies totally and utterly with the pilots. Sorry boys, these guys let you all down.

DeltaFoxtrotWhiskey3 (6 months ago)
Pilots criticized for failure to properly identify the failed engine...yet the co-pilot stopped the Captain from pulling back on engine one so they could do a cross check. He then identified engine 2 was out and feathering. The captain said pulling back on engine one again. How did no one in the cockpit catch that? It sounded like the failed engine was properly identified, the captain took the wrong action anyway.
Engine 2 is out.
OK, I'm going to shut down Engine 1.
