Very interesting. I am a retired professional pilot and live in the Houston area. We weren't watching broadcast TV and weren't aware of the crash until much later in the day. My recollection was that the line - which wasn't much where I live - passed through around 11:00 and should have been well past Anahuac by the time of the crash at around 1:00. This shows the crash occurred well to the east of the approaching line. This tells me weather wasn't a factor.
MesaAirlines confirms that one of the victims in Atlas air 3591 crash was Captain Sean Archuleta, a pilot for Mesa Airlines since 2013. Archuleta was riding in the jumpseat.
Horrible day and I feel such heavy sorrow for the families and co workers affected. Condolences and I hope we can learn what exactly happened in the coming days.
Some people have the time to come on here and say "duplicate squawk submitted". So what?!!! If he wanted to post this.. let it be!
FlightAware moderates the squawks. When multiple posts are made for a subject, they usually select one of the earliest and merge subsequent ones into a common thread. When trying to post a new squawk the system tries to alert you of similar ones already posted. It is considered good netiquette to refrain from duplicate postings. If one feels they have a new info source that differs from the already posted squawk, it my well stand on its own.
thanks for explaining my reasoning! :)
Hi Joel - Several times, when I'm preparing to post a squawk, I'll get an alert that it may be a duplicate. When I run a search, sometimes I find nothing, others I'll find something that contains some of the same words but on a different event, and then sometimes it has already been posted. Unfortunately, a few times I've run a search, found nothing and proceeded to post, AFTER which It shows as a duplicate. It happens.
