    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.

        The point about flaps and slats. Slats are on the leading edge and flaps are on the trailing edge. Could not drop to lower flaps as they keep you flying too less flaps it would fall to the ground a lot faster as flaps and slats keeps you in the air at slow speeds if you decrease them too much it will just loose lift and would have dropped on the village or the a road. That is why he dropped them just a little. He could have gone to idle with the engines but the trouble is he was too low. As if he was a lot higher to clear the blockage you go to idle and then it will clear. That is what the American aircraft did as he was at a higher altitude. I know nearly ever part of an aircraft and where they fit on an aircraft. Studied them for about fifteen months six hours a day. Also flew a 737 on a proper simulator.

      2. Aberro A

        Couldn't he switched flaps to even lower degree, like 10 or so? I'm not a pilot at all and I have quite basic understanding of avionics from flight simulators, but first thing I though of - release flaps and try to fly forward, reducing glissade angle. And then you've said the pilot did almost that - reduced flaps and realigned airplane. But what I don't understand is why won't reduce flaps further to reduce drag? Or that'd increase stalling speed and therefore airplane could just stall and fall uncontrollable?

      3. Ian Bintcliffe

        The fix was so simple no redesign. But the tubes was proud of the face of the heat ex changer there was a couple of millimeters protruding and this did not allow to warm up the fuel it covered the ex changer preventing the fuel going through so they took the two millimeters so it was level with the top of the ex changer now it will melt the ice now. Like i said simple fix. Also i think British airways was not good with Birkhill and he had trouble with them. Which i find disgusting not his fault the fuel system was at fault so it is the airplane maker. Disign no good. Also Can you do the accident with air Transat that one is very good even the pilot and first officer was very good. Especially using the air ram. As i studied aircraft and got a lot of knowledge as when i fly i always take a picture of what i am flying in. Also when i get on a aircraft i count the seat backs from the escape doors so if i can not see i know how many seat backs to the door. In case of a crash.

        @Neytiri te Tskaha Mo'at'ite Intresting

      5. Neytiri te Tskaha Mo'at'ite

        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 :|

    2. Victor Labate

      Fantastic video. I hit subscribe.

      1. Mentour Pilot

        Awesome! Welcome to the channel!

    3. TheOtherSteel

      14:34 - A change from -35C to -22C is up the temperature acale, not down.

    4. Legend Of Legends

      Miracle in heathrow ba 38

    5. Krisz Loki

      Wonder if they could do a go-around if they try it T-30sec. What would hapen if when they see the 1st engine go idle and then they just try to force increased trust? Would the increased pressure unclog the heat exchanger?

    6. VillaMasterSF

      lol what a (John) Coward haha funny name.

    7. Jerry Daniel Muscat - Oman

      It was very excellent way of explaining about the major cause of the accident, people who are not familier with aerodynamic factors are able to understand easily without getting into mathematics and technicality. I would appreciate if you could explain the major cause of the accident that occured in the year 2019 involving PIA commercial aircraft in Katachi, Pakiatan. I thoroughly enjoyi watching your informative and interesting youtube channel. Thanks

    8. Bumpkin

      Kudos on correct pronunciation of 'Beijing'.

    9. Galileo Chiu

      Great crew.

    10. Brandi

      Var är valparna?😁

    11. RJ

      Wow, this is like air crash investigation; but without the fake drama, bad acting, overly long suspension and 15 minute advertisement breaks. Love it :3

    12. Karl Stoll

      Landing gear ist generating a lot of drag. What about this procedure : Immediately after loosing the engines, retract the landing gear and lower it few secons later again just to gain some extension of the gliding path. Of course, there is not to much to gain but it is maybe enough to reach the treshold of the runway and land the aircraft. (My english ist not so good. Greetings from Germany)

    13. Nick Duffy

      There's a film where the pilot is inverted and turns the plane right way up to land now I no films exaggerated it for entertainment but would it be possible to do that I think the films called flight

    14. Zhi Han Lee

      The engines used was stated as the RR Trent 800 series at 1:27 but at 2:56 we see 'GE90' on the engine cowling ;)

    15. Pieter De Bie

      How much of a Karen do you need to be to climb back on a crashed aeroplane using the emergency slides 😐

    16. ck166666

      One of the best things about mentour videos is that it helps me understand what all the displays mean in MSFS2020

    17. Dido Skandar

      Both pilots have done fantastic job but unfortunately they have been sacked!

    18. TheJessefuji

      11:12 Looks like a good night out to me.

    19. andrewkeith5

      The pilot from this flight wrote a book about his experiences which I highly recommend. It is very insightful into what happened during and in the weeks and months after this accident. Thirty Seconds to Impact by Peter Burkill.

      I miss your beautiful dog.

    21. sopcannon

      subbed because of the details in this video.

    22. Михайло Сєльський

      So why there is different amount of hydraulic heat exchangers in two wings in the first place?

    23. apps tourtech

      Absolutely superb explanation ! I think it's the best explanation I've ever seen !! Well done !!!

    24. exclusivelynyc

      This was very interesting. Thank you. Very detailed.

    25. uncommon logic

      Another awesome explanation, thanks Mentor!

    26. micheal pineda

      The Investigation And The Conclusion For The Incident Is Somewhat Extra-Ordinary For This Is Pure Science And Lots Of Technicalities ! And After This Incident, I guessed Correction Has Been Completely Done To Avoid Happening Again In The Future. What Left Now , Is The Pilot Abilities Not Think Twice For The Dying Seconds...And Must Do What Is Necessary To Avoid Fatal Catastrophe On Such Situation .This Is Another Review For The Airline ,The Aircraft Manufacturers And For The Pilots Skills To Think For The Uncertainties ! Great Explanation Vlog, And Interesting Facts And Knowledge To Learn From It ! Thank You For Posting !

    27. Satya Prasad

      Can you do a video around MH370?

    28. Lisa Calhoun

      You do such a wonderful job explaining these incidents. I'd love to see you cover the crash of Pan Am Flight 759 in New Orleans on July 9, 1982.

    29. Pete Curran

      Superb actions by the crew in unprecedented conditions.

    30. Peter Evans

      SUMMARY: The engineers that designed the plane screwed up the design not accounting for a known in advance possibility that would result in zero engine thrust AND the pilots where entirely untrained. Same thing for every one of these videos.

    31. James Taber

      Fake computerized video. For shame!

    32. Alan Jackson

      Just a small technicality. It's Air Accidents Investigation Branch in the UK not board. 😁

    33. Hemank Dabhade

      Nice video..

    34. Dynasty1 Hertha

      Wow very Interesting

    35. Anthony o'Flynn

      Another winner, and another brilliant presentation. Magnetic hold over any audience with calm and fully informed expertise. Makes for compulsive viewing,

    36. RB

      Great description of this incident. Fascinating stuff.

    37. Tom Sawyer

      The wing flex as it takes off

    38. Eric Baars

      do you think landing on the grass helps stops a fire from starting due to sparks landing on the on the tarmac.

    39. RoadsideDown

      Where do I get the print of the wing vortexes behind you??

    40. Mad Scientific

      I'm not clear on something tho... Starting the APU... A little thrust bump?

    41. Gronicle1

      You are right about the co-pilot having it together to push nose down when stick shaker activated at low altitude. I lost a buddy who went power out on take off and while trying to 180 he kept the nose up and stalled his plane into a vertical crash. You might survive one mistake, but two is tough. And he had fifty plus years experience on over thirty different types.

    42. Bob Bates

      The solution seems simple to me . Just add fuel tank warmers

    43. Patony Brooks

      When you fly and airplane do you pay attention to the Altimeter to see how high you are off the ground?

    44. HiOn Maiden

      Rout-ed the fuel isn't running away...the term is route-ed. Also, Stay-ba-lised not stab-a-lized and LE-ver not lev-er, hope this helps.

    45. Stephen Banavage

      great video, well done

    46. Moshe the Zealot

      How much do piolets trust chinas fuel? Wouldn't surprise me if they added water to their fuel.

      Please cover the story of the gimli glider

    48. kirky org

      i was flying into Heathrow in the 90's and as we came in to land i was in the outside seat of the middle row and looking out the window i could see the top of the tails of the jets parked in the hangers at the side of the runway so we were pretty low and as i waited for that small bump as you land and then the reverse thrusters to kick in as well, the engine thrust increased big time and i thought that was a smooth landing as i felt no bump i glanced back at the flight attendant and she had saucer eyes i thought mmmm that's not good what i thought were the reverse thrusters was actually the pilot doing a go around the "official" reason for the go around was we were to close to the plane in front of us the say 4 miles and we were 3.5 the extreme measures he took to get us back in the air from so low down well am not sure i believe that story as we were real close to the ground am more inclined to think we were going to land in the grass that we had missed the runway will never know for sure but it was an eye opener no one died so the pilots did a good job in my book good video great info

    49. Sagittarius-A Black Hole

      Yes, these are really interesting, I'm an avid watcher of air crash investigations. It is very interesting to hear from an actual pilot, to see this perspective. You got my subscription.

    50. Segredos do Tio Sam

      20:18. But the aircraft is Intact. :-)

    51. Derek Priseman

      if that was to happen to a airbus could the pilot /1st officer have landed the plane manually as i understand they are flown by the computers and have no manual capabilitiy to fly manually as they are what is known as fly by wire unlike a boeing which is flown manually

    52. Steven West

      Another fantastic video Petter. I actually find them more interesting and captivating than the Air Crash Investigation tv series. Great work.

    53. Captain Kell Walker

      The F35 carrier vertical landing hovers into a position then slowly lands: If it can vertical land using the main engine to land so why can't it take off on the same principle?

    54. David F

      shame there was no radio comms on here

    55. Mark M

      What if they had retracted the landing gear to reduce drag increase airspeed and extended the glide path possibly far enough to make it to the runway?

    56. Roger Leyster

      Slick as always, fascinating stuff.

    57. Will Greer

      Absolutely fascinating details and organized (organised), patient presentation for us non-pilot blokes.

    58. NarnianLady

      Not into thermodynamics, mathematics, or natural sciences at all...I'm a humanities person... but I still find this fascinating!

    59. Aaron Seet

      The *Air Crash Investigation* episode for this incident on how they figured out the cause of the problem is amazing.

      1. Peter Evans

        SUMMARY: The engineers that designed the plane screwed up the design not accounting for a known in advance possibility that would result in zero engine thrust AND the pilots where entirely untrained. Same thing for every one of these videos...

    60. Peter Maurer

      And I assumed the engines would have fallen off.

    61. Life Quest

      So at what point is the aircraft deemed repairable or beyond repair? Was this aircraft repaired or cut up to make airplane parts? OR- after such a crash do they just cut the planes up for safety reasons?????

    62. Grant Rossouw

      Not long after this accident the wife and I went past on a bus on the way to get on a flight to South Africa on National Airlines of South Africa... Felt pretty nervous when we got on the plane discovering it was a 1990s model aircraft... and the carrier lost an engine departing from Cape Town but was fixed....

    63. Cake vs Fondant

      one time i came back from shangai to europe, we couldn't disembark for an hour or so after landing! the doors were all frozen, cabin crew had to wait for the doors to warm up

    64. CrimsonSnow

      So I just realized he said, if you start running at *MACH 0,2* you would see the temperature rising. Nice let us run around at 200km/h.

    65. Dan Frederiksen

      He was right to reduce flaps but should have reduced it until it had plenty of glide to reach the runway. To stall in that situation is not impressive but somewhat understandable in that airliner pilots are trained procedure followers, not capable pilots. They didn't adequately understand the value of glide and the detriment of stall. Stall is fantastically useless in a plane. It transforms a plane from a perfectly pleasant landing to instant death crash into the ground. A noticeable difference in practice. To solve an unpowered descending situation by pulling the nose up shows lack of glider experience. From the Sully incident and others there seems to be an arrogant presumption in multiengine aviation that multiple engines can't all fail. So it's fine to be incompetent if it happens. It's really not. I would suggest some engine failure and gliding training. It's good to understand what a plane is. As a pilot. That includes engine failure on take off and the awareness that the steep climb means there is energy to return at essentially any point. Although chance favors the prepared. Key is to appreciate how amazingly useless stalling is. You don't approach it.

      1. Dan Frederiksen

        btw the hard impact means they had taken the plane to stall which could easily have been avoided. They flew with full flaps and no power and pulled the nose up and made it much worse. Also maybe there is a video in talking about just how rare accidents are

    66. TryHard FinessedYou

      3 degrees to freezing fuel... Cutting pretty tight eh?

    67. lello333

      this is a real lucky situatuation, i dont know what the pilots could have do more, and i really call GOD intervention for this miracle! Thanks GOD

    68. Christian Kunert

      I think this is not what they mean by, put it on the numbers....

    69. Nick Kiey

      Just realised your sofa cushions are wingtip lights... nice touch!

      That passenger with the broken leg, I wonder if they'd have ended up with a broken head if there'd been one to call "brace"?

      If only other creators put as much effort into production as you do. You are quickly becoming one of my favorite creators with your well produced, thought out and informative productions.

    77. Uldis Ozolants

      Is there enough info and/or credibility to form a professional opinion about the Polish President Catchinsky crash near Sverdlovsk back in 2010? Is the international community happy with the Russian conclusions?

    78. arturo de los angeles

      out of curiosity , is english your native language?

    79. Costas Kalioras

      Thank you for the awesome videos and thorough explanation. Do you have any videos about the trails coming out of the back of the engines and the conspiracy theory that the governments are poisoning us?

    80. colin martin

      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..

    81. Harrick V Harrick

      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?

    82. Paul WIlliams

      Well done analysis of data . Well done video.

    83. Rck Flmg

      No, it wasn't a "miracle". Can that word be retired? It was mostly good luck that nobody died from this incident.

      1. Rck Flmg

        @Agustín Barquero would you care to explain what a miracle is and how it works?

      2. Agustín Barquero

        It was a miracle.

      My favorite thing about this channel is the examination of what regulations, procedures and actionable information was learned from each event discussed.

      1. Mentour Pilot

        Glad to hear that, it’s what I’m trying to highlight.

    85. Kevin Jones

      Always fly BA if possible as I know I have a decent chance of survival in an emergency because of their crew, engineering and general safety culture.

    86. ChiefJudgeDredd

      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.

    87. Luigi Corvi

      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!!!

      I remember that day. I was driving back from the West Country on the M4 and a VMS advised 'Incident at Heathrow'.

    95. Rawstar

      Boeing has some consrtuction problems now and then.

    96. Will Eaton

      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.

        Belonging vs lives, possibly yours. It's sad way to die, because somebody did not want to let go of their 💻.

      Is there an episode like this about "the flight" you know the movie with denzel washington doing that unreal emergency landing? I would love to hear an expert talking about it, and my lazy ass can't find it
