why is it still so common for pilots to shut down the wrong engine? The last time i flew ( as a passenger ),there was a camera on the nose and underbelly for passenger entertainment. Why not situate cameras so that the flight crew can get a visual on the engines? I am totally flummoxed but i am sure my inexperience will be on display by this question but neverless i need to know the answer.
To be honest Zoom, I'm not really sure it is all that common an occurrence - what makes you think it is?
My wings are like a shield of steel.
Thanks very much for the reply Batfink.You're right i am being liberal with the word 'common' but it has happened on occasions - On 27 April 1993 Zambian national football team one and the one still fresh in my mind despite it being 1989 was the British Midland Kegworth disaster.I accept they were some years ago it's just that i watch these programmes like Air Crash Investigations and Seconds from Disaster etc. and maybe it gets suggested more than it really happens, or at least than it leads to a crash.Thanks again.
