This video has been doing the rounds for a week or so and the accident report is also available as this happened in September 2018. The aircraft crashed in a lagoon 1500ft short of the runway at Chuck Airport, Papua New Guinea. This was a totally avoidable accident. #AvGeek
During the video you hear several warnings, indeed the accident report cites that that pilots received 17 warnings during the latter part of the approach. I agree with others such as @miami_rick who state that any one of these would have necessitated a go around. Accident avoided
The official report cited the crews operating as “not at a standard that would promote safe aircraft operations”!! Sadly,the actions of the crew resulted in a totally avoidable death and 16 serious injuries and further losses were avoided by the locals rescuing those in the water
This animation with with video was released inconjunction with the official report in the interests of flight safety. Any professional aviator will cringe watching this video. For the non-pros, the warnings say something is wrong....GO AROUND.
The official report makes some interesting reading not only about the attitudes and culture of normalisation of deviation with the flightcrew, but also the fact passengers almost fought with crew to retrieve their baggage!! Lessons can always be learnt to avoid this in the future
