TransAsia plane crash: Pilot's body found still clutching joystick of crashed plane
- See more at: http://www.straitstimes.com/news/as...k-crashed-transasia-plane-2015020#xtor=CS1-10
He was trying to pull off a Sully and just almost did it...I commend this pilot...a fine man may he rest in peace and God bless him and his family and all involved in this tragedy.

After seeing Yutaka Go's list I wouldn't go anywhere near one of those models...

Latest news: apparently both engines failed 1 minute after take off... ground crew sleeping on the job?

This air line, TransAsia, have crashed FOUR ATR 72, including this one :(

This crashed plane is quite new, not 10-20 years old plane.

I have serious doubt that there are any maintenance done at all :(

1 engine failed after takeoff, procedure normally called for failed engine to be shut down to reduce drag from propeller during this critical phase of flight, but the crew could have shut down the wrong engine (the good one) and resulted in a loss of both engine power.

C130 is very reliable for a propeller plane :bsmilie:

May be 4 engines plane like C130 is safer than 2 engines plane like ATR72.
Even when you lost 1 engine, you still have 3 more engines.

Actual turboprop planes are very safe ..

Yes. In terms of flight dynamics and aerodynamic characteristics, Propeller aircraft is more forgiving and less demanding when compared to jets.
