On the 17th of January 2008 a Boeing 777 from British Airways, flight 38, was flying from Beijing, China to London Heathrow, United Kingdom.
On final approach to runway 27L, the aircraft lost thrust on both its Rolls Royce RB211 Trent 895-17 engines and the pilots were unable to regain thrust.
The aircraft crashed down 330m before the runway threshold and the right main gear separated, the left got pushed through the wing and the nose-gear collapsed. Of the 136 passengers and 16 crew, everybody survived the accident with one serious injury and several minor ones. A true miracle!
In this video, I will cover the causes behind this accident and what we can learn from it.

      They got lost of engine thrust cause of that icy particles. So the engines had a partial cut off of the fuel intake needed to run properly. Really crap situation :|

    Great video, im not a licenced pilot but have piloted light aircraft , and when the first roll back occured and it was evident the plane was going to land short, my first thoughts were to reduce flaps.and reduce drag, and it turned out to be a correct reaction.. but im not going to do a me me comment, just a reflection on DRAG, Many accidents at airshows are caused by the TOO LOW, TOO SLOW syndrome, bringing in a plane with everything hanging out, full flaps, wheels down, for a touch and go. In my opinion a manouver that should be banned.. OUTRIGHT... By intensionnally reducing the speed of the aircraft, (usually throttling back from the flight settings ) causing changes in the engines performance, and this being reactionnary to every system that can affect an engines capability to produce power and react to changes in power settings..tempreature, fuel flow, air flow , dew point, boost pressures and a million other things that are subjected to a slight change..All this when you are trying to create a condition where the plane doesen't want to fly anymore.... but sink gently to the ground for a "supposed landing" Touch and Go...but you have no intention of landing and this is when trouble usually starts. Stalls, ground looping when one engine responds faster than the other and a dozzen other related problems of one or more engines failing to respond when the aircraft is still at landing speed 2/3rds down the runway and running out of options fast.. So why allow aircraft of all sorts to do these difficult and dangerouse manouvers at an airshow.. as any one of a hundred things could vary the outcome.. the unexpected, the un intended, the un known, the weather, jet blast from another aircraft on the ground , etc etc. or any mechanical failure..by doing a touch and go, you are throwing the dice, every time. The explination of this accident in this video is a great example of what can go wrong, when nothing has broken, no false manouver was involved, no erronious input from the pilot, it was something that wasn't expected and totally changed the situation just hundres of yards from a perfect landing.. and by far more experienced pilots than those we often see at airshows.. .imho..

    It IS strange that this happened to both engines almost simultaneously even though the right tank has two heating elements and the left one only one. Or don't take both engines their fuel primarily from the tank in the wing they are sitting on?

    I was flying my Airbus 321 back to Heathrow that day. Over Holland noticed the Fuel Temperature was extremely low and outside the low temperature limit at -46 C ! The outside air Temperature was -68 C about 10 C below the International Standard Atmosphere temperature. The Fuel Temp Indicators started blinking and we immediately asked for a descent to Flight Level 280 (28,000 ft) to warm up the fuel. The Fuel Temperature was well within limits when we commenced the approach to runway 27 Left at Heathrow. After we landed I was driving North on the M1 and heard the news that the B777 had both engines not respond and landed in the undershoot. I thought it must be Icing in the fuel lines because of the unusually low air temperatures at height. Many rumours abounded as to the cause. One of the most stupid was that ; Prime Minister Gordon Brown, was in his car passing under the B777 and was using his Satellite Phone which caused the engines to stop ! Hahahahha.

    I REMEMBER THE INCIDENT WELL...AS IT WAS REPORTED ALMOST AS IT HAPPENED.......WHAT INTERESTED ME MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE...WAS THE FACT THAT THE PRIME MINISTER BLAIR WAS ON A FLIGHT TAXIING ON THE RUNWAY AWAITING CLEARENCE TO TAKE OFF NEXT.........PERSONALLY I DIDNT FIND THE REASONS GIVEN AT THE TIME....NOR IN THIS VIDEO NOW......AS WHAT REALLY HAPPENED...... I FOUND IT VERY INTERESTING AND IMPORTANT THAT THE FLIGHT THAT LOST BOTH ENGINES.......AN INCONCIEVABLE POSSIBILITY BEFORE THEN......AND THE FLIGHT AWAITING THE NEXT TAKE OFF WITH OUR PRIMEMINISTER ON BOARD WERE COINCEDENTLY COMING FROM AND GOING TO BEJING........A FACT THAT NON OF THE MEDIA BROUGHT UP AS BEING WORTH COMMENTING ABOUT........BUT WAS THE 1ST AND OBVIOUS THING THAT STRUCK ME ABOUT THE WHOLE INCIDENT. NOW....OF COURSE....WE KNOW ABOUT THE ...UNINTERRUPTIBLE AUTO PILOT SYSTEM WHICH AT THAT TIME WAS SECRETETLY PLACED IN ALL NEW BOEING AIRCRAFT........AND SUBSEQUENTLY IN NEWSPAPER REPORTS ON OTBE INCIDENTS THEY SPOKE QUITE OPENLY OF TBE ABILITY TO INTERFERE WITH AIRCRAFT AUTOMATIC SYSTEMS FROM TBE GROUND BY HACKING INTO THE CONTROL COMPUTERS.......OF COURSE YOU WILL CALL ME A CONSPIRACY THEORIST......BUT I AM JUST A REALIST....BUT YOU MAY WISH TO CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THE ABOVE FARFETCHED FUEL PIPE EXPLANATION... WHICH IF TRUE...WOULD HAVE HAD PLANES FALLING OUT OF THE SKY BY THE HUNDREDS........INSTEAD HERE WE HAVE TWO PLANES....ONE COMING FROM....THE OTHER GOING TO....ONE WAITING ON THE OTHER....AND SOMEONE CLOSE BY TRYING TO STOP THE ENGINEZ AND CAUSE OUR PRIMEMINISTERS PLANE TO CRASH ON TAKE OFF.....BUT INSTEAD CAUSED THE INCOMING ONE TO CRASH FIRST AS IT LANDED...........PUT THAT IN YOUR PIPE AND SMOKE IT!!!

    Truly fascinating account and well deserved credit to the crew. But beyond that, thinking about the investigation, it must have required significant diligence on the part of the crash investigators to understand the cause and find a similar incident report. There is a tendency (with hindsight) to see it as obvious but with all direct evidence melted, and systems apparently working ok, it cannot have been so.

    I am thrilled bye you fantastic! Presentations !! Excellant! I saw a vedio on these rolls royce e gines their supposedly have 24 hr with their engines they since put a by pass and valve system to prevent this! My question is why no bye pass to begin with? Why no high heat low flow Waring system or maunel switch over to a differant heat exchanger? I can believe rolls royce was so lacking! I hold them totaly responsible im sure they say it wasn't designed for that angle or amount of water water is actually very good for gas turbines! Every day cars have by passes on them after wacthing your fantastic series I am not intending to fly again!

    You know, it's really easy for people to say "just leave your belongings behind"... but not everyone is wealthy. If you leave your belongings behind and they get burned up, then what? Your laptop's data is gone. If you had any photos, family heirlooms, important items, etc. they're just gone, irreplaceable. I understand it's risky to have passengers trying to exit with their suitcases and stuff, and I agree that it's a selfish thing to do -- but I also completely understand why people do it. They don't want to lose their often irreplaceable belongings, especially if they are poor or moving to a new country. That bag might be literally everything they own -- passports, ID, cash, laptop, clothing, mementos and souvenirs, etc. I genuinely don't know what I would do in a crash.

    These engineers are way too smart to build an undersized fuel heater for such climate use. Just my opinion but those auto controls are being messed with I guarantee you. I know the man that knows this as fact and Boeing designed this into the controls that all aircraft equipped can be remotely controlled and the people that hide such things as they did until the internal document was produced, are not likely about public safety but pleasure in mass extermination at their control. That is why the world looks as it does. Thankfully their time is all but up !

    05:00 The officially recognized term is Celcius not Centigrade [S]o you may ask When did centigrade become Celsius? It became Celsius in 1948 because Centigrade, means 100 degrees, also as a unit of measurement in the {Latin} French and Spanish languages. Celsius is named after Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius, who invented the Centigrade scale. -- Zero degrees Celsius equates to 32 degrees Fahrenheit..So you can F that Only the clowns start counting from 32 upward. The intelligent people start counting from Zero upward. The terms Centigrade and Celcius were used interchangeably until the mid-20th century. Although some people who were successfully indoctrinated still use the term centigrade. ----- The official term is Celsius. The names Celsius and centigrade date back to the scale’s two originators. In 1742, Swedish scientist Anders Celsius designed a temperature scale that used 0 degrees as the boiling point of water and 100 degrees as the freezing point. One year later, French scientist Jean Pierre Cristin developed a similar temperature scale: Cristin's scale using the same divisions as the Celsius scale, the difference being that Cristin’s scale set the freezing point at 0 degrees and the boiling point at 100 degrees. Cristin called his scale the > centigrade scale < because it was divided into 100 parts, with 'centi' as the prefix for 100 The Celsius/Centigrade scale in use today is Cristin's, and it was interchangeably referred to as either Celsius or Centigrade in different regions of the world. In 1948, 33 nations met for the 9th General Conference on Weights and Measures. This conference was a meeting of countries to determine the standards of measurement used in those countries -- these conferences were established in 1875 by a treaty known as 'LA CONFÉRENCE DI MÉTRE' in Paris Translated as > The Convention of the Metre < -- also known as the Treaty of the Metre. At the 1948 conference, the Centigrade/Celsius scale was officially designated the Celsius scale in honor of Anders Celsius. The USA committed to the metric system in 1875 by signing an international agreement. The 1875 agreement was amended in 1921 'LA CONFÉRENCE DI MÉTRE' in Paris [FRANCE] Signed by M. Ashbourne the U.S. Envoy to France All its units have been defined to the metric standard since then. The Metric system is the official and preferred measuring system in the USA for Trade and Commerce. Search for 'THE CODE OF LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA' §205b clause (1) states: To designate the metric system of measurement as the preferred system of weights and measures for the United States Trade and Commerce. Since 1994 both Metric and US customary units have been required to be shown on labels and packaging in the USA. The US currency is the Metric system, and it is that because the metric system for currency has been made compulsory. The reason why people 'Domestically in General use the modified Imperial system in the USA is that it has not been made compulsory for > common domestic use < For International Trade and Commerce the U.S. system is Metricm as per Intenational treaty. Only one state in the US uses Metric for distance Measurement i.e Km. and not Miles. Interstate 19 from Nogales to Tucson in AZ is measured and noticed in Km. The ONLY U.S. Highway to have Metric Road signs. International trade would be difficult with different measurement standards, which is why the Metric System is the international system for weights and measures, including the USA. in 1975 the U.S. passed the Metric Conversion act.

They didn't make it to the runway, crashed on the embankment from the freeway.... Don 't know the flight, could be at Heathrow?? Anyway exelent explanation fr the heatexchangers, same as the exchanger(oil and coolant) in the car.. Cold the coolant heats up the oil temperature, when the oil gets hot it gets cooled by the coolant....

    great videos, high quality content and well delivered. I had one incident in a flight from Newark, NJ to Cancun Mexico on a United Airlines direct flight. It was march 2020 just before everything went on lockdown due to covid-19, we were on final approach to Cancun airport - as a frequent flyer; I felt this approach was at faster speed than what I am used in these planes; as we touched down it was the hardest touchdown I have experienced in 20 years, we had a first long bounce, followed by a second smaller bounce and then suddenly the engines went in full throttle for a go around. It was quite an experience, everyone on flight was quite scared, shaking from the hard first touch down and you could feel a general scare in the cabin. We then landed safely and smoothly on he second try. As we walked out of the plane, we were the last family to do so as we waited for everyone to deplane. My 6 year had threw up all over herself because of the bouncing as she was sitting with her mom and our one year old in the last row of the plane (late check-in and full flight that was very heavy). As we were walking out on the bridge I see a flight attendant sitting on the side of bridge and ask her what the hell was this - captain and first officer were still on the controls. The flight attendant explains that wind shifted and plane lost lift on final what caused the 2 heavy bounce and go around. I always ask my self is speed had something to do with this, I am happy we landed safely and the landing gears were still OK after a heavy hit such as this one. Is this a common or have you experienced something similar? Is the plane designed to take this beating ? Again thanks for your videos really cool.

    In fact R&R efed up by changing the design of the heat exchanger to make it cheaper to produce. Normally, the heat exchanger pipe through which the fuel passes is flush with the top and the bottom plate of the heat exchanger, which is quite demanding to make, but if ice accumulates, it melts in contact with the hot surface of the cover. To make production simpler, they left the pipes to protrude above the plate longer, thus creating a place for ice to accumulate without the possibility of melting. The solution - go back to the old design that is reliable.

The many tubes of the FOHE were stacked against each other but varied slightly in length due to normal manufacturing tolerances. Normally this isn't an issue, but in the cold case the ice accumulated on the edges of the uneven tubes. The fix to the FOHE was to trim the tubes so they were all pretty much even (in plane) and this was shown to prevent the issue from recurring. I think that's the way it went.

      because there was no fire despite the engines running at idle on impact with the main tank ruptured on the port side and the landing gear forced through the starboard wing, some say, the plane had been under-fueled and simply ran out of gas! The convoluted final report was engineered to save faces in Beijing and London.

    The captain called out the wrong callsign in the mayday, Speedbird 95 (instead of 38). Is it true that 95 is the number used in training, so that is the reason?

    Very informative and educational, I loved the fuel flow diagram it gave me an understanding of the flow stages from tank to combustion. Finally very happy about the fact that this incident had no serious casualties.

    When they say "lost engines" are they referring to misplaced engines??

    What would been the effect of having reduced the flaps further say to 10 degrees, could it have made the runway smoothly?

    All I can say is WOW. FANTASTIC job by the captain and FO!! Their quick thinking and "unorthodox" reactions may have saved everyone's lives that day. When that low to the ground, seconds matter and they didn't waste any of them from what I can gather. Also, thank you so much for the great information on fuel dynamics and such. That content adds a tremendous amount of clarity to the entire video. I just found your channel tonight and look forward to watching many more!!

    A phrase I heard many many moons back comes to mind as I watch such an interesting subject: " You somehow manage to snatch defeat from the hands of victory😒" Boring narrative on an otherwise interesting topic.

    You misspoke your mach numbers, misplaced decimal point - "cruising speed of Mach point zero eight..." That's slower than typical highway driving speeds on the highway. I know you meant "zero point eight".

    I'm a _very_ stingy subber, but after 3 crash videos I'm in. I love learning how to fly too but these accident reports are sooo interesting. To answer your question, I would love to see this kind of rundown (aviation pov) on the 2 biggies of our day: 911 and Malaysia flight 370 ✌🏼

    Just wow, this speaks highly of the training of pilots and their experience. To have the composure to recognize, evaluate and react sensibly in such a stressful situation is beyond what any of use would experience in life. 30 seconds in the air is like 2 seconds on the ground and these guys do the math and risk assessment in milliseconds. Even though thousands of flights have gone well, it only ever takes one, to cause reason for concern. That fuel heater could have done well with a slightly larger diameter pipe system or a by-pass, surely, but they designed it never expecting such strange accumulation of circumstances. When the planes are too efficient and don't use enough fuel to keep the flow rate up...lol.

    What I find so amazing is not the landing of the plane, but that there are so many _"pilots"_ and _"aerospace engineers"_ among the viewers... ◔‿◔

      HAHAHA . Same here . ( actually I do have my pilots license but next to no flight time and long expired ) . I cringe at some of the suggestions given to resolve a difficult situation with a very complicated operating system . I also watch science videos and love when someone in the comments section starts off with " my theory of the universe is " .

    Maybe the engine manufacturers should design a kind of heat exchanger that circulates the fuel back into the tank, not just the fuel that is about to enter the combustion chamber. That way, the formation of ice crystals in fuel tank and hoses will be avoided.
