SJ100, https://www.flightradar24.com/data/a...89098#20671283

The video on the story link above raises some concerns about the reaction by airport crews to the event, I would have thought they would be at their ready positions near the runway for its arrival? Obviously it’s only one video, and has been edited. RIP to those that lost their lives, it’s somewhat haunting watching that video.

I believe this would be one of the first inflight airline fire cases that has had some success as far as saving lives go.

This is quite a bizarre video in the context of reaction by crews: https://twitter.com/WildWildMoscow/s...914872834?s=20 I note once again an evacuation WITH luggage grrrrr

Looks like it’s now 41 that have perished, and there are quite a few videos on social media now, some not so nice when it comes to content.

Apparently it was 90 seconds before the arrival of the first appliance, and the aircraft was not on fire before the gear collapsed after a third hard landing which probably explains the response, some similarity with an earlier SJ100 hull loss event - Air Yakutia late last year where the main gear also collapsed.

Coming back to the airport when squawking 7600 with probable radio failure should have had the tenders on standby one would think?

Not likely Nige. 7600 is only communication failure.

7700 on the other hand, that would have invoked a very different response.

I'd have thought it would at least trigger a local standby Mick. Expect a normal landing but there's an issue (radio comms, and maybe more?) with the aircraft.

Radio Faulure was not a local standby in my days in the tower in Sydney or Melbourne, while at Bankstown the only thing on standby was Paul Keetings Mum and the hot dial to the noise complaints line , nor was it a trigger for an incerfa or alerfa.
