  • Yes Bigoode,it's a good news. In this case, as one engine has failed, the master caution was ON a few minutes before. We use to cancel the warning light (by pushing on it) when we are aware (JCVD lol) of the situation and we treat the problem.
  • Petite rectification : c'est trop petit pour le voir mais les volets sur sorti à 3 (ça va de 0 à 4) car sur un moteur on ne sort jamais les volets complètement à l'atterrissage pour éviter une trainée trop importante notamment en cas de remise des gaz. Sur l'image en grande taille on peut lire le 3

We can easily see (with the help of my notes for non pilots :-) ) that engine number 2 (right) is shutdown and the aircraft is flying on one engine only.

    I'd love to do this job and setting all these little knobs and switches - just amazing - especially if your whole life is accompanied by electronic devices which have that few knobs and buttons that you know all functions after a few days... (except Photoshop, Linux and Avid Software ;)

    Wow! Aircraft are amazing feats of engineering. I'm sure a lot more goes on "up front" than the average passenger realizes.

    Great photo!

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Engineering is Art, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    "Defining boundaries for engineering and art is almost impossible. Everything can be a product of engineering. Actually, everything IS a product of engineering. So what's this group about? It's about things that make you think about the mind who's behind what is visible. Share the feeling you have when you look at a slender bridge, a lean tower, a creative machine. Appreciate the creativity driven by technology and the technology applied with creativity."
