AS somone who has been involved in Aviation some 30 years you think you have seen it all..... then something like this comes along.

You NEED to watch the whole clip as it does not get to the amazing bits until about 1/2 way through..

Weird.

What would cause the engine to restart like that? A forgetful pilot not closing down properly? Or a random fault caused by water ingress or something?

Glad nobody was injured.

Reading the comments from the video site I noticed that some pilots posted that the plane's "ignitors" are on during landing in case of engine failure. Apparently the engines were not shut off after the crash by the pilot and the right one restarted.

Quite amazing.

I hate to say it, but the whole thing reeled off almost exactly like some Hollywood movie...

The people getting safely rescued, the jet engine mysteriously starting itself... The rescue boat engine failing to start the first time (I was thinking `JUMP!-SWIM!` ). The tension racked up by the higher pitch of the spooling engine about to blow. A couple clutching eachother in the boat out of fear... Then getting away just in time with all hands.

Life can be more amazing than a movie!

Glad everyone was ok.

I kept waiting for Inflatable Otto to wave from the cockpit as he took off.

They'd better have torn that guys cert up, he landed downwind in a runway that could barely support his aircraft, AND failed to turn the engines off and cut the fuel in the event of a crash...


Does anyone have a NTSB report link?

Additionally, the airport diagram for Bader Field, was observed attached to the pilot's control
column after the accident. A notation, which read, "airport closed to jet aircraft" was observed
on the diagram. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Oh wOw!

I thought some crazy fool pilot was trying to beach the plane when the engines re-started!

Hows things Tony? I've just got back from a long Holiday so hopefully will get back onto the An-26 repaint a.s.a.p.

I still see that we are all waiting for the next addon. Is it still 2 weeks till it's released? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
