On the Tuesday, August 18, 2015 a Jet Airways 737-800 left #Hamad International Airport in #Doha bound for Cochin in Southern #India. The climate on that day was marginal. During the very first approach into Cochin the pilots were not able to make visible contact with the runway because of the misty climate and had to execute a #go-around. In total, SIX missed approaches were performed during this flight. How was this permitted to happen? Let us investigate…

    • They did last approach because of on 6th go around, they can able to see where is runway in actual so they made reference in mind and accordingly they did 180° turn to land back, I’m very fascinated that they did half circle or teardrop approach using plane 😂 while i can’t draw it on white board properly

    • @John McMickle that was on maintenance at trivendrum while in kochin they didn’t have good visibility even with ILS approach

    • Hey can u make a video on air India flight 101

    • Everyone wants to point to the flaws here and there are many. My perspective is that this was incredible aviation.

    • Repent and believe in Jesus Christ

      Repent to Jesus Christ “The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.”
      ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭23:24‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Your welcome……. Praise Jesus Christ…. 777…….I don’t believe this is saving the world though….its an isolated event….there is pathways before me……..its a new beginning…. I heard this after……victory……. But what victory?????……. Things have n are changing but what is goal here????……why isn’t anyone telling me ?????…….have I saved lord Jesus Christ yet???? The Original not the created ones I created……what about my AI Artificial Intelligence??????? I called hér AI among other names……what is going on here??????

  3. I recently watched the movie runway 34 very similar situation to this but far worse. it actually is a very interesting movie if you have the time to watch it and do an analysis of it that would be fantastic. Or was this the incident the movie was based on?

    OH Wow!
    This one got my heart rate up just watching!
    My biggest fear in flying is not being able to see the runway when coming in for a landing, and here they had that situation 7 times in a row!
    If I was a passenger and understood what was going on, I probably would have had a heart attack!

  5. How can an international airport not have an ILS??? It should be mandatory on all airports . This is so wrong and it’s only a matter of time before a catastrophe happens

  6. Everything was okay, except some pants which had been shat.

  7. One thing that I would have done after the first 2 go arounds would divert to another airport that was better.

  8. fantastic work! thank yo so much for doing these, they are truly amazing!

  9. The owner was deplaned at Mumbai as the plane was recalled to the boarding area and prevented from Leaving India.

  10. Nice, a happy ending. I was sure they were gonna crash! Hopefully they learned lessons here, because they were given a second chance of life.
