Dasnake Posted March 3 Share Posted March 3 I was doing some reading and came across air transt flight 236 and the longest glide by an airliner, 75 miles into the azores, if that wasn't interesting enuff with the complete lack of landing tools the pilots brought it to a stop with mechanical braking and blowing out tires and collapse of wheels, a few injuries but no fatalities, the article said they started engineless at 33,000 feet and dropped at a rate of 2,000 feet, that would be a minute, is there anything a pilot can do without engines to enable a better glide pattern. Great feelgood story. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
