    The real Kamikoto knife company of Japan is not associated with the Kamikoto company advertised here. The Japanese company only supplies to the Japanese domestic market and uses folded steel. The KK advertised here is a Chinese company which uses stamped steel which is not folded - it has nothing to do with the Japanese company.

      I bought a set of Kyocera ceramic knives several years back, and they've been amazing. I felt they were a bit expensive at the time, but they've lasted amazingly well, haven't needed sharpening, and were still significantly cheaper back then than what a comparable set of these "Kamikoto" branded one's are listed for now.
      They feel like the kind of quality tools that'll one day be bequeathed in my will, because they're one of the only "Modern" items I own that I feel may quite easily outlast me. :D

      They are made from the cheapest stainless steel that you can make a knife from and charge several times the price of a decent japanese knife

    I've always wondered how the making of this excellent channel has influenced Petter's own actions in the cockpit. It's like having his own permanently ongoing safety training. I am sure he is one of the safest pilots out there as he is constantly reminded and super aware of all the things that can go wrong. (and, well, he is a Swede) 😁

    The lesson about not expecting everyone else to do the reporting when something isn't right is important to remember regardless of our occupation. Hopefully, the pilots who didn't think it was important to report the anomaly with the ILS and only reported it after the incident will never abrogate that responsibility again. At least this time, the lesson was not written in blood. (Not that I fault the pilots, not when everyday life is filled with examples of anyone doing the same kind of thing.)

    Just a quick comment in regards to the sponsor kamikoto as they are questionable to say the least. There's a video made by a youtuber called shadiversity that tries to work out if the knives are genuine or a scam since he has indepth knowledge about swords and steel, there are non Clip-Share sites that also did similar research if you are curious. Just thought I'd mention it since noone commented about the kamikoto "scam".

    Great work Mentour Pilot. This video is very impressive! A "must watch" to all pilots out there. As an EMB135/145 Captain flying in Europe this video is even more relevant. The funny thing is, I found your video 1 day after filing an Occurrence-Report on a VOR approach into Thessaloniki with almost the exact same problem. Luckily the weather was not so bad so we had good reference with the runway well above minimums and corrected for the off-track. As a pilot I know it sure is hard to overcome the "Confirmation Bias" when your instruments are telling you something different from reality and with the words "trust-your-instruments" ringing in the back of your mind. It happens to the best, never say never. Thanks fellow aviator/colleague of the skies.

    Hey man! I’ve been on a binge with your videos after finding your channel a few days ago. I love your content, it is really great and you navigate tragic events respectfully.
    I love hearing professionals talk about their craft!
    I have always loved documentaries on aviation but yours got to be the best I have found! You outshine all the “professional” tv network content I have seen on the same topics. I do not know if Clip-Share is your full time job or if you are also a pilot but if you are that is just crazy!
    You are very great at explaining the complex things. I love the visuals! Because of my adhd I have a hard time following audio and they really help!
    10/10 channel and content, have a good day!!

      The thing that makes Petter special is he doesn’t speculate, and doesn’t throw blame around, but instead focuses on how we can all learn and improve. If I had my life to do over again, despite my success, I’d have rather been a pilot, and I’d have loved to have had Petter as a trainer (if I wasn’t quite a bit older than him).

    Another nice video from Mentour Pilot!
    It is tempting to confirm that you see what you want to see. On the end of a sailing trip with poor visibility it was difficult to see the entrance markers of the harbour. I asked the helmsman if she actually saw the markers and she confirmed that she did see them. I didn't, so I asked again if she saw a green and a red buoy or light. Yes, can't you see 'm too? Anyway, I had a closer look at the chart-plotter (which was inside the boat) and concluded that we where heading for a mooring dock and the person at the helm had interpreted the bollards on it as the markers we were desperately looking for... The dock was protected by a stone jetty on the seaside that would have ended our sailing trip in a disastrous way.... Conclusion: Do not try to use false reasoning to make you think that you are in a better position than you actually are. See f.i. the "Deepwater Horizon" incident where measurement data were wrongly interpreted by the experienced people involved. They wanted to see 'good results' (finding oil, finding the runway to land on...) leading to a major environmental disaster.....

    When I was doing my flight training, I was also working assisting on medivac flights. Knowing I was doing flight training, I was treated as a second officer type role - having my head in the flight at most times - even though I wasn't flying or part of the operating crew. I was included in the briefings before flights and during the flight itself - and the golden rule said specifically to me was "Just because you might think you're not qualified, if you ever see something that seems out of place, make sure you speak up and tell us. We'd rather confirm something isn't a problem than not notice a problem."
    One flight, when I was getting more familiar with the aircraft systems, I noticed that on a long flight over the ocean, that the fuel remaining estimate was about 1hr less than the flight duration. I mentioned this just after we came out of the 10,000ft sterile phase of flight and got a reply of "That's fine, we'll discuss it when we get to the cruise altitude". A bit later on in the flight, it was explained to me that the fuel computer only uses instantaneous fuel burn to calculate the time remaining, and was shown that now we were in the cruise stage of flight with a much lower fuel burn than the climb, we had at least 2 hours beyond the flight time of fuel onboard.
    This might sound simple, and routine, and like a rookie mistake - but the captain told me I did well to spot it - and that it was better to point it out and get a proper explanation than ignore it and nobody notices a mistake that would have caused us to have to ditch in the ocean. This is the perfect culture to foster in aviation - and should be encouraged no matter what type of flying you do. The realisation that aviation got this culture embedded into it from people not saying things and dying should be a sobering reminder of why things are the way they are.

      @icemachine79 The answer is in my reply to leisti somewhere in this thread. Others please pardon me for repeating myself. Working on the Boeing Jetfoil in the 80s, the abnormal OP for a low tank level alarm was to open the common valve between the tanks (without any other considerations before and after conducting this ABN OP). I thought it was not correct. Low level alarm or not, I believed lots of checks should be done before and after opening the common valve for tanks. I did not bring it up to the management or to Boeing. So after watching the Air Bus incident (in Mayday, decades ago), I wondered if it would make any difference had I brought it up then, probably very remotely but at least I would clear my conscious.
      I do bring up concerns at work as I notice. Supervisors/Managements don't always take it positively. I got burnt several times.

    Its a worry actually that the captain was given that status after her clearly having failed not once but on another occasion also to meet the requirements for the rank. To add this, the co pilot also showed hesitations, and clearly required more assistance with the aircraft and associated systems. More than the failure of the ILS system, in my personal view pilot error was THE factor that caused this accident which fortunately did not end in any fatality or serious injury.

    Radio antennae are significantly affected by the objects around them, in the case of directional antennae as used in ILS systems, their directivity is impacted. The 'gain' of these devices in a particular direction is achieved in a way similar to using lenses and mirrors for visible light; there is no extra overall energy, but the energy available is directed where the designer intends. The wavelength of these systems is approximately 4, 3 and 1 metre. Any change in the electromagnetic characteristics (permittivity, permeability) within 1 wavelength of these antennae will *significantly* affect antenna operation, and within 2 metres will have some influence. A build-up of snow (or vegetation, a shed, a person, a metal vehicle, et cetera) within that region will affect the directivity of the antenna system.
    Ideally, the antennae would be a minimum of 2 wavelengths above and apart from the nearest object(s).

    Kamikoto knives are a scam. They use cheap 420J2 steel that is illsuited for a knives and definately not a high-end steel. You can find similar japanese style knives made with the exact same steel for 20-40USD and not for 200SUD. The SUS420J2 steel is the same steel no matter where in the world its made, "high quality japanese steel" means nothing.

    In every episode, Petter does 'absolutely fantastic' emphasizing lessons to be learned. These lessons are not just for those in aviation. They apply to all aspects of life. I've recommended Petter's channel(s) to family members and friends for this reason, in addition to the compelling and entertaining way that Petter relates -- he creates suspense, maintains a respectful attitude toward all, and injects an element of humor when appropriate. Also, he's just an over-all nice guy and family man that I would love to have as my next-door neighbor.
    I've watched the production values of Mentour Pilot improve steadily over the years. I miss the old days, though, when one could count on unscripted appearances and antics by the pups on the black couch with the red and green pillows. I hope our furry friends are doing well.

    As a EMB145 maintenance technician, I think the aircraft handled this accident like a champ. The gear sheared off as designed, but didn't quite end up fully departing the airplane. The nose absorbed the impact softening the shock to the passengers and crew. All in all I think the airplane did a fantastic job. It's just sad that we lost an XR, those are the pinnacle of 145's.

    I work at a large aviation repair facility and often pass along important suggestions about safety that I learn here. Who knows who may be having a bad day or because someone is new and in training. Often I followup with the question, "Would you feel safe to fly on the plane that you were a part of repairing?"
    We now have a suggestion box to improve safety and award workers for going above and beyond. I'm going to suggest watching some of these videos that are shorter. If someone on the FPI line rejects a blade with a hairline crack and prevents a tragedy then this channel will have more impact than anyone would ever know.

    It’s too bad the decision making of the crew was so badly flawed as it seems like they had good general CRM otherwise. Their communication was awesome, they were well briefed and had put forth information well. They handled the initial approach beautifully and never got behind the aircraft.
    And then to blow it by violating one of the most critical rules of aviation, it’s truly mind boggling.

      @flagmichael not even just prepared for the go-around, they even briefed the possible ils deviation. Like I said, it’s truly mind boggling, they were operating like an amazing crew until the point that they hit the minimums, then from that point they violated one of the few hard rules in aviation, if you don’t have positive view of the runway by the time you hit the minimums, you must go around.

    • Alex Germán
      Alex Germán Day ago

      probably only in big (geographically speaking) countries, that have population not centered in one location. For example Argentina is a big country but pilots usually live in one of the 3 big cities: Buenos Aires (the capital and the most populous city with near 25% of the population living there), Cordoba or Rosario. Córdoba is 1 hour flight to BA, and Rosario-BA are 500km away so a flight is likely to take very little time. Brazil probably has a similar situation where most people live in 3 or 4 cities (Brasilia, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro) and Sao Paulo is the international hub.

    Notes: ASAP reports, Aviation Safety Action Program, are automatically forwarded to the FAA and do not remain internal to the airline. A factor not listed, and never listed, is the pressure pilots feel from their companies to complete a flight. This culture of pressure is real, and prevalent. Seasoned pilots are less susceptible to this phenomenon of pilot pushing, however, younger less experienced pilots may show less resistance to pilot pushing and a sense of "completing the mission" rather than adhere to procedure. As the industry begins to fill up with newly minted pilots during the rush to fill pilot seats, new pilots need to learn from accidents. A nice breakdown MP. Lesson: There is no mission to complete; stick to procedures.

    Although not an issue of a similar nature, this video reminds me of a Ryanair flight I once took as a passenger when I was a current private pilot. We were boarding from the ground and I therefore had a chance to look at the aircraft, a Boeing 737. I noticed that there appeared to be a bit too much aircraft skin buckling at the lower tail section. When I got into the aircraft and got a chance to speak with a stewardess, I informed her of what I’d seen, that it probably was in tolerance but that I was a PPL and could she inform the Captain so that a further visual check could be made before takeoff. Well, unfortunately, I was treated as if I was causing an unwelcome interruption for the cabin crew and asked to sit down. Nobody reported back to me so I have to assume that my comments were ignored! I’ve never flown with Ryanair since, and have no plans to do so again.
    Keep up the good work with your videos. I find them so informative and your analysis and explanations are excellent. I occasionally discuss your videos with my son-in-law who is a Captain for TUI on Boeing 737 and moving to Dreamliner shortly.

    Fantastic video. Good analysis. There was a lot of caution flying into that airport. 3 months prior, the runway maintenance crew improperly report braking action which almost caused a runway excursion. Greatly increased runway performance buffers and alternate rules came from that. Also got the feds involved.
    I was unaware of the loc antenna clearance rules and their changes. That was very interesting to hear.
    But with the weather, snow removal challenges, and a weaker captain it lined up all the cheese.
    Fortunate no one was injured.

      When I first heard of the incident that afternoon, I assumed it was an excursion because of previous runway reports being greatly inaccurate.

    I love how Petter really highlights how important it is to follow operating procedures in high risk, high stress operations and his advice can be adapted to so many occupations... I learn so much valuable information from his work.
    I've spent a large part of my working life working in large mining operations as a drill and blast technician and shot crew foreman and I always drill into my crews (no pun intended) that the only bad emergency call or shutdown of a machine when a hazard was detected is the one that wasn't called. I will never, ever chastise any member of any crew, no matter how low on the totem pole they may be, for identifying what they perceive as a hazard and stopping the machine they're on or calling "emergency, emergency, emergency" over the radios and stopping the entire site. In our line of work, there are plenty of situations we are in every single day that do not have the option of a go around. Although our procedures make things relatively safe nowadays, when things do go wrong, they go catastrophically wrong and there's a hundred different ways to end up as a thin veneer spread across the work site.
    Call the emergency first, no matter what you think the reason may have been and if you're unsure of what you're doing, or if it doesn't look quite right, then always stop and get someone more senior to check it out and if they're unsure they'll grab someone like me to make sure everything is kosher.
    Just like those pilots with the "sterile environment" we have times where the shot is tied in, ready to fire, when we have similar, very strict rules about who can and can't be anywhere near it. We have procedures in place, as tedious as they can be, for very good reasons and the sites are only as safe as they are thanks to a long line of tragedy that has taught us what those procedures need to be. Not following the procedures on my shot crews is a real good way to get your arse fired immediately too.

    The first approach where they barely missed that tower should have set off major alarm bells in both pilots - you just should not encounter an obstruction like that if you are lined up with the runway. Pilots are trained to believe their instruments, but this extreme anomaly must override that training and cause a reset - the instruments aren't ALWAYS right.

    I certainly agree with the finding that the First Officer's fatigue was likely a factor. When I finally got a CPAP for sleep apnea I soon noticed that when I was driving I seemed to have a remarkable sense of traffic around me. In reality, it was normal situational awareness after years of driving in a fog. The devil of it is that it is hard to know when our awareness fades. Now I don't even take a short nap without it.

      @crimony the condition doesn't abate. It's a serious lifelong condition. I have a professional driver (more like planes than cars) with OSA in my life, he's not allowed to work without his CPAP. My partner has OSA too, he would invalidate his car insurance without using CPAP at night. My dad turned a car and broke my niece's neck because he hadn't used his CPAP that night. You would not want to be in a plane flown by a pilot who hasn't used his CPAP, nevermind was too sick to use his CPAP.

    • Funny farm 555
      Funny farm 555 2 months ago +1

      @crimony The condition that was abating was the First officers flu. Being a long time Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Machine (CPAP) user, I know it only takes a few minutes to set up and a few minutes to pack up (Used to travel for work, now retired). There is a delicate balance in using a CPAP while sick with a cold/flu/pneumonia. I have had to sleep upright in a chair while sick because of the possibility of the CPAP pushing the ailment further into my lungs. I have had pneumonia twice in my lifetime. Having said all that, one should never self diagnose when he/she no longer needs a CPAP; That should be a decision of the sleep center doctor(s) based on another sleep study. My machine transmits data to my VA sleep center doctor so she knows just how each night went and how many apnea episodes I may have had. A CPAP doesn't miraculously cure or stop all apnea episodes, but their main purpose is to reduce or stop them each time you use your CPAP, thereby increasing your overall oxygen count/percentage.
      A saying I learned a long time ago is; 'Its hard to remember that your main objective was to drain the swamp when you are up to your ass in alligators'. Best to get out of the swamp and re-evaluate; unfortunately those pilots did once but should have twice and then diverted.
      The same thing goes when using a GPS. If you find a directions error, report it to the manufacturer; you may save someone's life. Ron Pratt (Clip-Sharer) has a tow truck company in the Midwest and is constantly recovering Semis that followed their GPS into trouble.

      @crimony When the condition abated? For some mild cases there are things that cause symptoms to abate (like losing weight), those aren't usually the cases where you're prescribed a CPAP machine.
      For those with a CPAP, the alternative treatment options to abate the symptoms are things like surgery, and even then, they're not 100% effective. Either way, he was either prescribed it, or it wasn't required. There's no in between, and transition from the condition to without isn't done without serious treatment and consultation with Dr's.

    Great analysis. Really intriguing accident, which I had always thought was a case of the a/c skidding off the runway until now (I remember seeing a photo of one of the main gear lodged in the left engine intake). Also a big relief that no one was seriously injured or killed. Interesting that they saw something very wrong (tower) with the first approach and decided to go around, and then saw the same again with the second approach but elected to try and "salvage" the approach and landing.

    ILS beam deflection is an interesting phenomenon. The lower beam of most glide slopes is bounced off the ground and outwards at 3 degrees.
    Normally the localizer is quite reliable but in winter a freezing rain over a snow pack will change the height of the signal bounce and throw it out of tolerance. This is typically picked up the monitoring system.

  • Chris Schaeffer

    Thank you Petter for this great report. I have much experience flying into PQI in a Saab 340. This airport can be a real challenge in the winter. One challenge is the lack of chemical being put on the runway most likely due to budget constraints. PQI is a Essential Air Service route and is only serviced by one airline. The operations crews would only scrap the runway to clear snow, but many times it was white as could be and hard to distinguish from other terrain.

    • Julia

      This video got me thinking a lot about the challenges pilots must face here where I live, which is in the nothern Canadian prairies. There are International airports here, in the larger cities. We have like six months of winter. -40 is a normal temp. There are times where you can look out the window, and struggle to see the house across the street.
      Even driving here in winter is crazy. Not so much in the cities, but on the highways, if it's snowing and there's any wind, everything is just white white white. A car could be three feet in front of you, and you wouldn't know. We call it a white-out. A blizzard is even worse, but it doesn't have to be a full-blown blizzard in order to cause a white-out, or visibility issues.
      I think about the amount of accidents, injuries, and deaths that are caused just by driving a car here in winter, and I wonder about how much more difficult pilots must have here during our long winters.

    Huge fan of the channel. Have watched everything you have done for years. Your English is great "almost" perfect in fact.... but I am going to be a little impertinent here and make an observation about one small thing that does not affect anyone's comprehension but that I think you might want to know. You frequently need to say something such as "like I said earlier...such and such." The preferred grammar is to say "AS I said before" not LIKE I said. Is a small thing but it happens a lot due to the nature of your expositions and, if it was me, I would want to get it perfect, given that your English is so close to perfect. I really hope you don't find my observation out of line. AS I said earlier I am a huge fan.

    I retired from UAL and have always thought we had very good pilot training as I was put thru the ringer every year. So I was surprised at the lack of judgement by the captain on this approach. Before I flew for UAL I flew CAM Air cargo out of Miami. I was an FO 727 landing in an airport with no tower in the NE somewhere with localizer only approach. I ended up too high and the captain a young dude wanted me to descend quickly in the goo. He pulled the throttles back almost to idle and told me to use 1000fpm but then I pushed the throttles up again and he pulled them back then I pushed them up and he pulled them back again. I then said "going around" and pushed them up to go around much to the engineers delight. We subsequently landed NP. After landing the captain told me with admiration, "good call on the go around" Lesson learned, when in doubt go around, go around go around and if an FO don't let the captain put you/aircraft/pax in danger with poor judgement.

    During a flooding event in my city, I was assigned as part of a law enforcement unit to check which streets were still unflooded (so other emergency services like ambulances and fire brigade could get through as required, without having to go hunting for access to where they had to go.)
    I noticed what I thought was an excessive amount of fuel on the surface of flood waters around a petrol station that had gone completely under (a few cm's under the roof). I was told by my dispatcher at the time to ignore it, as it was likely surface runoff. I disagreed, and so made a few calls. We were told during those calls to remain on site, and evacuate people at least 500m. About 20m later dispatch advised a water police unit was attending with divers (unknown to them as a result of my calls), who went down and confirmed a rupture in one of the fuel tanks of the station. The diver came up and told us to get everyone back at least another 1000m, and to evacuate all the surrounding businesses and households.
    I'm so glad I disregarded the direction to move on and ignore the issue, given people were standing on an overpass bridge down-current smoking less than 50m from the station. It's not guaranteed anything would have happened, but multiple failures are always at the source of a disaster, and I can at least say I have never contributed to one through action, inaction or error.
