  • Wrong way plane flies to Melbourne instead of Malaysia.WTF

    Great Scott.. What next...LOL

    Passengers on a flight from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur found themselves in Melbourne after the captain put in the wrong position at take-off, an Australian accident investigation report has found.

    The report said that on departure from runway 16R the aircraft was observed by air traffic control to enter the departure flight path of the parallel runway 16L.

    Following advice from air traffic control, the flight crew identified a problem with the on-board navigation systems.

    However, the report said that attempts to troubleshoot and rectify the problem resulted in further degradation of the navigation system, as well as to the aircraft’s flight guidance and flight control systems.

    The aircraft was instead radar vectored to Melbourne, Victoria and the flight completed in visual conditions.

    The crew then elected to discontinue the flight but were unable to return to Sydney as the weather had deteriorated in the Sydney area and the available systems limited the flight to approaches in visual conditions.

            Actually, no they couldn't.
            Consumer grade GPS devices won't work above certain altitudes and speeds, so that they can't be used for launching missiles and stuff.

                afaik, It flew to Melbourne because it couldn't fly to Malaysia, or back to Sydney due to bad weather which was their first preference when the navigation system failed.

                The story was a beat up...

                      Another reason I probably will never fly on their planes no matter how cheap the airfare is.

                      They have had a few fuck-ups now, one fatal.

                          Okay... I have a 1967 Boys own World atlas they could have used.

                          Also people need to remember do you want the flight that you paid sweet fa for or the flight that makes it safely?

                              Well yes and no. They're not supposed to but some do. You just have to know which ones.
