Emergency scenarios

Very often, when things start to go wrong, one problem leads to another and all of a sudden, you are faced with a multitude of issues. That’s probably the most realistic part about Chuck’s emergency scenario. The rest … well, maybe some of you have run into similar scenarios during a checkride? Or maybe even in real life? In which case, I hope you snatched a picture of the metal eating mega spider!

    Well, this collides with the twin comanche that just crashed in Paris suburbs ….as far as we know it, both engines suddently quit. Unlikely but happened. An also very unlikely one : I had recently a partial failure of the pitot (and thus airspeed indication) short after take off, as a fly went crashing itself exactly at the end of the pitot tube, and stayed here even after 2 hours of flight. I’ve got stunning pictures of it when I finally landed
    Key takeaway, in aviation, even the most unlikely things eventually happens

    As Merlin said to Maverick “If you fly long enough, this stuff will happen”

    Reminds me of the scene at the start of “Miracle landing” (movie about the incident of Aloha 243) where they are in the sim and the instructor throws 3 emergencies: depressurization, engine failure and hydraulic loss and after they are done the checking pilot complays thats its impossible for the 3 to happen at the same time… when they are actually closelly related and expected to happen together: Engine has uncontained failure, debree causes decompression and loss of the engine means some hudraulic loss ..i know it was for “casual viewers” but come on…
