O.O

Can't believe cathay authorised that kind of flying. That is so dangerous, looks it is near stall angle.

but high perfromance

haha

It's not too dangerous, the thing about a fly by wire a/c is that the computer controls most of it, put engines full and get the pitch right and that's the result!

yeah, but fly by wire still rely on the aerodynamic of the aircraft to fly. if there is an unexpected 10 kn of tail wind, it could be risky because the aircraft is so close to stall speed. also when it stall out, full thrust is no use in high angle of attack, they need to convert altitude to speed. flying is full of surprises, fly safe always.

lesson could be learn from the air show crash of the B 52 and the C-17, Heavy aircraft is not fun to push to the limit.

that just my opinion

Cathay obviously did not authorise that, in certain scenarios, this is possible and could happen to any plane.

but you can't fly a cathay jet like that with out authorisation, that just wired to see, because i thought after the Air France A321 Accident in that air show, all airline set the guide line aircraft should fly.

That was... absolutely thrilling!
No really, it looks kinda scary when such a huge aircraft almost stops while flying, never seen a plane of that size performing something like this.

That strikes me as unnecessarily risky, especially at their AGL altitude. No room for error at all.

Nothing scary about it, a computer can react quicker to a scenario than a human!

Planes crash Bill, plenty of Boeing have malfunctioned but we learn from that. I'm just stating where I get most of my info from, my dad has flown 747s 737s Shortts 360 F50 320/321/330 and although he enjoyed the 747, purely because it was a 747, he still would choose the Airbus' over the other types as they are the most advanced and in his opinion best to fly. I have flown both in commercial sims and I too prefer the 320. My opinion.

I love Boeing, and like Airbus alright, but i would always much rather have a experienced, veteran pilot making the calls over an "experienced" computer any day. My opinion.

agree that airbus's self protection system could minimise human error. But i think B-777's system works the best. it oppose to what you doing instead of taking over.

My friend fly the MD-11 and A340-600. He said to me, those computer made the plane so easy to fly, it also most like video game.

everyone have their opinion between Airbus and Boeing, Some prefer to have more control, some prefer automation.
