Imagine sitting in your #hotel room on a tropical island, casually looking out through your window and seeing the landing lights from a #Boeing 737 which is coming straight for you at an altitude of only 50 feet over the sea!
This might sound like a #movie scene but it actually happened on the island of Sint Maarten a few years back and the fascinating story of what lead up to this, is what I will be covering today so stay tuned.

As a retired pilot, and have not been flying for a long time, this particular episode reminded me of a similar incident that I faced a long time ago. I have since learned to double check my initial perception before going to the second phase. Your very detail description would serve well many a younger gerneration of pilots, a cautionary lesson that I did have the benefit to learn. Good Job, Mentor Pilot.

Seems a common problem - the brain tries to confirm what it expects to see from what is out there - then gets it wrong. Same thing with Air NZ slamming a DC10 into Mt Erebus in 1979 - while on a sight seeing trip over Antarctica - whilst doing the sightseeing at 2000 feet altitude. 300 paid the price for that mistake

I really love about this series that you don't only cover the bad accidents, but also stories like this, which could have turned out way worse but didn't. It's always reassuring to see how every of those (even "minor") incidents eventually contributes to make the aviation industry safer for everyone by not focussing on blaming one single person but by addressing shortcomings of every player - the pilots, the airlines, ATC and the aircraft manufacturers, and recommending improvements from which everyone can benefit in the future. Keep up the great work!

This is why I that there should be 'importance' departure and approach cones regarding the both the data and voice recorders so that they do not record over themselves at critical points during the flight, and or if something happens that needs to be kept for reference. My idea was always, to have a secondary tape running in parallel that would be activated in the event of an error, or a justification of some sort in order to preserve information in cases such as this. There are literally thousands of instances where the voice recorder and data recorded have been overwritten and information is lost that could be deemed as important.

I use Mentour's thought process/learning process/questioning of what I know every time I step into a little Cessna 172. Really keeps you humble to think of highly experienced pilots falling to human-susceptible error and thinking things through in this way makes me safer (I hope).

I'm so used to my own tropical island's airport having Cat II ILS approach (Mauritius) that I was very surprised to learn this popular destination only has VOR and RNAV! I'm glad this flight was ultimately okay - the experience of the pilots is sure to have played a part in their ability to recover from the situation.

There is a public road between the start of the runway and the sea which probably can’t be re-routed hence cannot build platforms to cater to an ILS approach. Guess the experts can confirm or debunk this.

Excellent video! I’ve been following Petter for years, and this is one of my favorite clips. I enjoy a lot the detailed analysis of “apparently minor” incidents: it makes you understand that EVERYTHING is important and there’s a lot to be learnt even if the occurrence is not a full-blown disaster. Good psychological explanation - and BTW congrats for the quality of the virtual rendering: massive improvements, to an extent to which it starts to be difficult to understand if it’s computer generated or actual video footage

I’ve been on that beach by the runway many times. It’s a surreal experience. When planes take off , people literally line up on the chain link fence to get blown back by the engine thrusts during take off. There has been several injuries because of people doing this.

Thanks so much for this.I do love a happy ending! The psychology behind these kind of “errors” is so interesting. As a nervous flyer who is nonetheless fascinated by aviation ( my father was an RAF pilot) I take great comfort in knowing just how skilful pilots are and how many safety features there are on aircraft. I’m on a short flight across Europe in a couple of weeks and this has made me feel better about it.

Wow Petter, great description as usual, some years since I retired from flying these fabulous machines, and it sure brought back lots of memories. Very nearly all the holes lined up in the cheese- that was just far too close for comfort. They really got sucked in such that they made really bad errors. There’s a certain Indonesian airline that have a great record in stretching the limits on “so called” visual approaches to the extent of actually landing in the water. I’m sure you’ll know who I’m talking about. I don’t think I could have ever done the same- definitely would have called unstable approach I believe…. I even did exactly that as a new FO on the 747 (having come from the 767) when landing at another island strip, landing in heavy rain at night in about 1991 - actually to the point of yelling “You must listen, we’re low” at the very experienced captain. I don’t think it would have ended very well if I’d been intimidated by him and said little or nothing.

Thank you so much for these videos, sir. I'm a trucker by trade, not a pilot, but these videos are always interesting to me. I'm always a bit nervous when boarding aircraft or ships, and I'm making plans to visit the UK. While one might think watching videos on incidents and accidents would be a bad idea for a nervous flyer, I like watching yours because you explain the nuances of the situations, and what lessons the industry has learned to be safer which is actually helping me with the idea of flying over the Atlantic. Thanks again!

Indeed, these are good at showing how multiple things have to go wrong in just the right (wrong?) order for a crash to happen. I've never been a very nervous flier myself, but I'm definitely even _less_ nervous now! And it's also heartening to see incidents that _didn't_ end in a crash -- and what was learned to make a future incident even less likely.

At that time (March 2017) I was often tuned to PTZ, which had (and still has) a camera always on at SXM. It was very stormy and several flights had diverted to nearby islands, but Westjet continued its approach. I could also see that it was still coming by watching Flightradar24 at the same time. So I saw and vividly remember seeing the plane almost disappear and then pull up again, seemingly out of the sea, or as we learned 39 ft from the surface. As Pettar reported, there were a lot of headlines about this and much discussion on avgeek sites. Sept 6 of 2017 Hurricane Irma hit Sint Maarten and devastated the island. The last live video there was was from the same PTZ camera at SXM, video which I saw used in news reports all over the world, with “PTZ” showing in the lower right corner

My mothers parents had a farm in the direct path of an airport/airfield in Mora, Sweden, and when visiting them during the summers as a kid theres two things I remember clear as day: The yearly(?) airshows and big aircraft flying over their house at a seemingly ridicuously low altitude on a few occations (though not in relation to mentioned airshows, I dont think), so I can only imagine what this wouldve been like.

You wouldn't believe how close the landing jets come to hotels in Puerto Princesa, Palowan, Philippines. It was a complete thrill.

I suppose there's one obvious question: did anyone contact the hotel owners to see if anything could be done to change the profile of the hotel roof to try to reduce the risk of optical illusion?

​@Jim Vajda Within a certain distance, same as height restrictions in the area. Heck, under Eminent Domain it can be removed entirely.

@Jim Vajda In this case, since the hotel has so many people see it from the air, a plain white roof seems like a low-budget beginner option. A corporate logo or name of the Hotel spelled out on the roof seems like it'd both be an effective way to prevent mis-identification, and also look nice.

@Mar Hawkman it’d still look like a runway from a distance. Why not simply put the typical flashing red beacons on the top that they put on everything else?

@Marcell Kovacs heh, you mean blinking lights like on a runway? :D hahaahah, yeah you'd have to carefully choose light colors or having a lighting roof would make it worse.

Wow, I don't really know what to be surprised and amazed the most, if by the outstanding editing of the video or by the story itself. Congratulations! Love it all. For me it is really tough to land there in my sim, specially because I land VFR and outside the cockpit. 😁

Dear Captain, I know I might sound eccentric but I sincerely treasure your content and all the fantastic documentaries you put out. I have always wanted to be a pilot but I am too poor. However, my love and ambition for aviation will always remain and I feel as though your videos are fulfilling that desire. If I had money I would certainly gift it to you but as I said I am broke. Keep up the great work. Sincerely, Top G.

Hey Mentour, could you do a video on PLL LOT 007 crash in 1980? There's already a couple of documentaries out there on that flight but none of them cover the subject like you do - professional, step by step, understandable, and very thorough. Love your work. You're doing a really great job. Each and every of your videos is vert engaging. Thanks for that. All the best

There was a similar incident at Dublin Airport some years ago, when the ATC officer realised that an aircraft on final approach had mistaken the vertical line of lighted windows on a nearby hotel for the actual runway lights.

Did they analyse the level of runway lighting at that time? I hope it would be much stronger than some building's interior lighting!?

@skayt The problem is you can't really regulate how bright people will illuminate inside their living spaces, hotel rooms or businesses, and runways light can only be so bright I think...

This video highlights something that should be done. Pilots are required to undergo reviews at set times during their carer, but I think that those working in the tower should also be required to undergo reviews every-so-often, say every two years. If someone in the tower causes a problem that results in an incident then they should undergo formal retraining, and training when new technology is implemented at an airport. Also all tower communications should be recorded as well for both safety and training.

These accidents, or near accidents, are really interesting, but what is fascinating is your description of the procedures behind all these flights. Really makes one respect the pilots and cabin crew, and the people on the ground.

Awesome analysis. Having grown up in an aviation environment, my father used to tell about air crashes. There was an air crash of an Air India Boeing 747 in Mumbai on 01/01/1978. Wish you could do an analysis of the same.

Always greatly enjoying your content. Lately been noticing how you manage to subtly emphasize the key points in the Swiss Cheese model that lead to the accident. Even more enjoying the lessons learned part, as always. Looking forward to more!

good to hear one that was more of a mishap than a close call. I'll be interested to hear your opinion on the increased number of runway incidents that are happening in the US this year, when you get to them.
skayt 2 aylar önce
I would consider this a close call. Leveling off and having to roll an airliner at only 12 m above ground is dangerous. Even more so because they had too much sink rate right before that.

So appreciate your outstanding knowledge, and respect and sensitivity you always show describing some disasters. I've been binging on your videos, and it's scary but also amazing what some pilots do, and don't do. To me, NO salary is high enough for well trained, experiened cockpit staff. I also wonder Petter, if one day you can review TP425 disaster in Madeira? Given it's a C class airport with challanges, a history of crashes and go arounds, I thought an interesting one to cover. Thx much for all you do & fly safe. 🙏🤗

You explain aviation so well I'm starting to believe I can fly . The work you do is so good, you're bringing aviation into the mainstream. One humble suggestion if you're looking into expanding your content repertoire is to share with us interesting developments in aviation history from your perspective that have had profound impact on the industry. Again, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.

That was very close. Fortunately, the cloud cover broke up just in time - otherwise this 737 would have crashed into the hotel and hundreds of people could have died. The experience of the pilots then certainly helped to save the situation.

Talk about the perfect storm (no pun intended) of variables that build up to create a situation like this, like the hotels roof shape and orientation that made it similar to the runway. Really highlights the importance of procedures and required rules for specific airports during different phases of the flight.

Your video's have a non-agressive/threatening way of informing/educating the viewer WITHOUT insulting their intelligence. This is a perfect match, you are- if not a pilot- a born educater! And I for one am a proud student of yours😎 Thanks for your wonderfull content!

I really liked this one, well done. This was a very interesting case. I wish I knew how many times before this that they've landed at this airport, and how it might have affected their decision making. Also, the vid of you on gocart was great 👍🏻, but it faded away as you approached the pole. Really curious if you hit it 😂

I lived next door to a major hospital and my apartment was only slightly above the level of the heli-pad. Sitting on your balcony and seeing a helicopter barrelling past following the road is really something! But not what you expect on a hotel balcony and 737s are rather bigger!!
