They did a fantastic job putting the airplane down on the water in pitch-black conditions. It’s remarkable that they were both rescued, and I wish them a full and speedy recovery.

I cannot imagine the de-brief that the crew will under go.
Thankfully, they are with us to answer those questions.

It's the first successful 737 ditching. I think the fact that it's an early model (737-200) with smaller diameter fans helped.

Sorry. Not the first. There was a Garudas Airline 737 in Indonesia that landed on the Solo River between two bridges. Only one fatality.

My favorite is the TACA Airlines 110 "ditching" that ended up not landing in the water after all!

Successful because they both lived. Considering there was a debris field and one pilot was clinging to cargo, it appears the plane broke up and they were able to evacuate from the cockpit. Had it been a passenger 737, there would have been survivors but I'm not sure they would have termed it successful.

No doubt, a Max would have presented a different profile.

However at first they did not follow procedures and completly missed to inform a Mayday. May be because they are rookies ?

Both engines? Fuel starvation? We will have to see how the investigation plays out.

Just took off, 2nd engine was overheating. What made both engines have trouble will be an educational read.

A similar situation had happened years ago with a B-727 - The cause?. . all three engines (engine oil) were topped off with Skydrol.

Maybe they shut down the wrong engine? That has happened before...

God volcanic ash would make total sense that both engines overheated and shut down but is there any volcano activity going on there right now?

Not that I can find. Sometimes it's just a bad day, but they got it down. Hope the injured pilot recovers.

Please tell me how a fuel starved engine can overheat.

I wonder if we will ever know the cause of the accident. The aircraft sunk in water that could be more than 1000 feet deep, and the engines would likely have been separated from the wings. Recovery would be difficult and expensive, and since there was no loss of life, will the NTSB be able to spare the money and resources to do a thorough investigation?

A tip of the hat to the crew for handling a "snake in the cockpit" Of course, our muck raking media made hay of the fact that it was a Boeing aircraft involved. They all need to find a real job instead of feeding on others misfortune.

One engine overheating might indicate oil leak, but both engines? Let see those engine maintenance records first.

I remember an Eastern L1011 limping into Miami after all three engine's oil drain plugs were left loose.

Ha. 10 NTSB volunteers for Hawaii. No fatalities, no airplane.

Great job by pilots. They deserve a $10k bonus.

A 46 year old 737 flying at night over water, no thanks.

Remember the Potomac incident and the incident that John Laming, (an Aussie 737 pilot) found him self in? Problems with power settings on JT8D engines due to blocked PT2 tubes, leading to the perception that the engines are overboosting. (EPR readings above expectations and N1 readings below normal at the same time).

HMM, I WONDER HOW THIS HAPPENED! COULD IT BE A FAULT OF BOEINGS?

B737-200. An aircraft that old should be checked more strictly.

Just saying: “Is it a ‘landing’ if it’s in the ocean?”
Quirkyfrog
Robert Cowling 1
I'm sure that was exciting, and they did good. Not many places to put it down around Oahu. Damn good job.

Are you implying that the Pacific ocean constitutes a "BULLSEYE"?
Quirkyfrog
Robert Cowling 2
When the shit hits the fan, and you can't fight gravity any longer, any landing you can survive, and live to talk about is a good one. So vote my comment down, and slag me for it, and make something out of nothing. They SURVIVED! In their case, the Pacific Ocean DID have a bullseye on it, and they hit it and survived.

Or would you have had them die?

Your whole response seems kind of an attack on me. Take a pill, Ron, good grief. You might live longer...

It's an old model 737 with skinny engines without big blowby compressors. It was night so I wonder about a few things like missing settings like bleed air left open with possibly some panel lights being inop. Seeing he was haggling with a checklist it might of been trying to restart then leaving bleed air open to restart could of left his running engine weaker and running rich. Too bad he didn't turn back sooner.

Indeed. The report by Blancolirio makes the point that they coulda/shoulda turned back sooner to the nearest airport even as they fussed (apparently) with the checklist.

Last report was one of the pilots was in critical condition. Any update? Hoping for a full and speedy recovery for these men. Their professionalism was beyond outstanding.

Sounds like fuel contamination to me...just sayin. High EGT is characteristic of burning AVGAS in a jet engine. We'll see.

I can’t see an AVGAS tanker being able to mate up with the fuel ports on a 737.

You dont fill a 737 over the wing.

Most likely possible if the Jet-A truck had been topped off with Avgas or a mixture of Avgas and Jet-A due to a screwup at the fuel farm before refueling the 737. Testing and records would prove that real quick.

Seems like it would cause problems with fueldraulic components and alarm the crew before takeoff??
