You're kind even they tried this body. But you will never. On my mind as a result of this, he was along with these other lawmakers disqualified from parliament and his seat was taken from him. Nathan becoming elected to the legislature and being forced out was a big moment. Any cemented you as a political figure in Hong Kong an awesome it. There was a huge amount of attention focused on you out. Did your family feel about my family's has not been politically active?

China, it was way comically was extremely unstable during the childhood growing up. And understand that kind of shoot a Wedneday successfully moved to Hong Kong and tried to stabilize their life. So yeah. The effort beginning they. They were doubtful in trying to persuade me not to get in full deeper and deeper. But Yeah. At the end of the day, they didn't stand out. They're not going to change me. And they're not going to change the frustration of a lot of the I think. Not long after that along with your friends and fellow protesters Joshua Wong and onyx child he was sentenced to prison for your involvement in the umbrella movement. What was that like?

I was sentenced to months of imprisonment. One month before my time, I was visiting the prison as a legislator. Talking to older superior officers in the person but on the next day. I've to be there. So it was quite a. Turbulent journey for me. So it was tough but I think for me I I I was quite relieved after I really make. A my mind strict.

Ballot blocks: the squeeze on Hong Kong

"The squeeze on political freedoms in Hong Kong is ramping up and fast. On Friday, the territory's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced September's planned elections would be postponed for a year and poss- sediments. I've always had to make difficult decisions but then the announcement I have to make today is the most difficult decision that I have to make in the. Insisted, the delay was only to avoid the spread of COPA, nineteen. The decision to postpone them the training train t electrical election has nothing to do with politics has nothing to do with a likely outcome of this round of. PRO-DEMOCRACY PARTIES, AD HOC for success in the poll riding a wave of discontent at Beijing's recent imposition of sweeping national security law. The legislation broadly defines and harshly punishes subversion sedition collusion with foreigners. Nathan law one of Hong Kong's most prominent pro-democracy activists recently spoke with our sister podcast economists asks why? Phones. Movement is still really strong though there have been protests against the new law. The millions of people who wants surged onto the streets have largely stayed home is police have cracked down harder just try to imagine if you live. In a country place that that is no freedom of expression freedom of them fraiche ethan freedom of thoughts. Then definitely, like protests does not exist or will be lushly quashed earlier last week, twelve pro-democracy candidates were banned from running whenever the elections happened. On Saturday, on Kong's police issued arrest warrants for six political activists living in exile in the West. Since the promulgation of the national security nor on July the first of the scope for political expression has been very much. Dominic Ziegler writes Banyan, our call him on Asian affairs. And because of that, there haven't been any street protests. of any size since July the first because of the consequences. For those taking part. But nevertheless, there has been widespread concern about postponing the election by a year, the Bar Association, representing senior barristers and other lawyers in the territory has expressed what it called grave concern and it said that a decision to postpone September's elections for the Legislative Council, which is known as Mexico was undermining a vital constitutional rights and so what does that mean in practice? What happens with the sitting lawmakers? There are all sorts of implications about what it. Means in practice because hitherto Hong Nor has been very clear you have to hold elections for this quasi-democratic legislature every four years. So the government of Kerry lamb, the chief executive is in a bit of a pickle about how it justifies this. Although she said, it was for reasons of the pandemic several other jurisdictions have been able to carry out elections, and that includes recently elections. In Singapore, there are certainly suspicions that the decision was taken not because of. The pandemic, but because Democrats had a good chance in fact. Gaining for the first time a majority in this rather gerrymandered council and indeed even obstructing a government policy or criticizing the government has it has been suggested by the authorities the risk of falling foul of the new. National Security Law. So this decision is absolutely shot through with politics, but nevertheless to take some finessing by the government. To show that the move is legitimate, the chances are that how it will manage that is to get a ruling from on high from Beijing saying that this is the appropriate course and it's worth bearing in mind that Beijing has always since Hong Kong's return to China. Has Always had the authority to intervene in Hong Kong's has the understanding would be that this would happen only rarely. But in the last few weeks, we've seen it happening time and time again, I think this is going to be the practice for the future. But what about the the the candidates who were banned from running here is, is there a risk that that Beijing will start to essentially stack the LegCo with with loyalists there in this interim year? This certainly is a risk Jason the bear in mind that all the moves around legend. have been made in order to ensure that the pro democratic camp does not secure a majority in the legislature. Now early last week, the authorities did this by disqualifying a dozen also candidates caming that even for criticizing the National Security Law that gave the government grounds for not allowing them to run. Now, a few dozen candidates actually sit in the current Legislative Council. So one big question that the authorities have to find an answer to is whether those four legislators continue to sit in a council session is is now being extended by a year. The chances are that the government will find means to disqualify. Those four and Beijing's moves go further than that. Recently, they're speaking of arresting pro-democracy activists outside of the territory, which is also unusual. That's right has happened in the past week on July the twenty ninth four students were detained for supposedly inciting secession. This seems to have had something to do with facebook page and shortly after became clear that the police had put on a wanted list, a number of activists who are currently in exile. So, there is an example for instance of how China intends for this new national security in order have jurisdiction beyond the borders of the country itself. These people were in the United States, the UK and elsewhere. One of them was not even a Hong Kong citizen better taken up US citizenship and so as as Beijing's hands gets heavier in Hong Kong Antoine Indeed all over the world. How are people coping normal life goes on so far as both the virus and the new political restrictions allow what is certainly happened is that the street protests that so colored and royal the territory last year are now very much a thing of the past. So the act the concerned the worry that. Has. Taken hold in the territory is one that is not always voiced publicly but in private conversations and the concerns really are about Hong Kong's long-term future. One of the possibility is certainly that many people discussing is immigration and a number of countries have. Roots towards long term permanent residency or even citizenship. Those countries include the United Kingdom Australia Canada, the United States. But many people are not in a position to leave immediately. But what happens now with all of the momentum that was behind the protesters but this whole movement now that protests themselves have died down to the protesters are moving abroad. What happens now it looks like well, over half of Hong Kong's population is in favor of democratic change but the possibilities for that through politics and through the ballot box have been very sharply restricted in in recent weeks. So there's a conversation emerging. About what form opposition should take? So people are starting to draw parallels with the Eastern European bloc during the Soviet era too many people here the national security nor is starting to look like the Ray quick building of the Berlin Wall in the early nineteen sixties and people are drawing comparisons with opposition in the decades following that in eastern Europe and that opposition took perform of underground dissident, it took the form of dissident writers and The church played a big role in eastern. Europe. Some hope that it may do here in Hong Kong one positive sign has been taken from last year's protests is an extraordinary. Creativity in in the form of protest art in the form of. Video making. So the hope is that maybe these avenues might at least allow a civil society not only to to hang on by its fingertips but also to grow. Don Thank you very much for your time fact Jason.

America's recent protests against racism and police brutality have drawn much interest in the Middle East. Some people have reacted with shock some with Schadenfreude. For others though America's unrest was an opportunity to discuss the problems with race in their own countries. Most Arab states have a black minority, each of which faces its own discrimination. The worst treatment though is reserved for migrants. There is a scene that played out almost every day for weeks for months outside of the Ethiopian embassy here in Beirut he would see cars pull up and drop off their passengers if the OB and women who were carrying their possessions and suitcases are in bags. Great girls from is our Middle East correspondent based in Lebanon these weren't women catching plane or catching a train. They had nowhere to go actually word maids, domestic workers whose employers. Could no longer afford to pay them because of the economic crisis here in Lebanon also couldn't send them home because the airport was largely closed because of covid one, thousand, nine, hundred, and so they dump them off outside the embassy they simply left them there to be someone else's problem. You would meet women who said they'd been sitting there on the curb for days on end using their bags as pillows simply left the fend for themselves. And isn't that kind of a general comment on how Lebanon treats migrant domestic workers? It is even before cove in nineteen. Before the economic crisis, there was widespread racism and harsh treatment of migrant workers here there are a number of cases where Lebanese have advertised their maids on facebook as if they were property, there was a post back in April that offered a Nigerian made who was described as being very active and very clean and she. was being sold for one and a half million Lebanese pounds, which is worth about a thousand dollars at the official exchange rates. There was also a clip that was circulated widely here in Lebanon in June it was from a television channel in Ghana that covered the return of two hundred or so Ghanaian citizens from Lebanon most of them. One, hundred, eighty of them were women working as domestic workers here, and they described horrendous conditions and treatments. Fit. After that sexual harassment. They bit s like animals. I have videos of this. I went through in that country and they also warned other people not to follow them to Lebanon not to come here to work. No. Doubt Music and go back to Lebanon is not a country that we should be. How does this situation come about? Where for instance, an people find themselves trapped with arguably abusive employers often starts with unscrupulous recruiters are agents migrants who come here to other countries in the middle. East. Are often promised good salaries, respectful working conditions and they arrive and find out that it's anything. But but then they find themselves trapped for two reasons. One is they often have to take out loans to pay fees to these recruiters and the loans can run thousand dollars two. Thousand dollars which when you're making only a few hundred dollars a month and you're trying to send much of that to your families back home it can take many months if not years to pay off those loans. So they find themselves trapped by debt. They also find themselves trapped by something called the Catholic system, which again exists here in Lebanon and many other countries in the Middle East whereby migrant workers are bound to their field or their sponsor, and so they can't simply. Changed jobs because their residency in their work permit is connected to their sponsor, and if they leave that job, they have to leave the country. So you meet migrants who say despite the awful conditions they're making more money here than they would make back home, and so they're willing to they're forced to continue to put up with US conditions because they're blocked from finding another job, and so all of this is a function of how the Lebanese feel about migrants or is this. Strictly a racial thing. It's hard to separate the two because almost all of the migrants here are either from east and South Asia or from Africa. So it's often connected to race as well as their status being migrant workers but the racism here it cuts across socio-economic lines I spoke with a black diplomat too says been pursued through upscale shopping malls Lebanon by security guards thought she was a housekeeper and they wanted to know why she was shopping without her madame without her employer. So Racist, certainly a problem here and in other countries around the Middle East and not only when it comes to migrants states across the Arab world have black minorities. You have Egypt for example, the Nubians who have been there for thousands of years you have in the Levant and the Gulf states black communities that are often the descendants of slaves taken by Islamic empires or the descendents of African Muslims who made pilgrimages to places like Saudi Arabia and decided to stay again, those communities face various kinds of commission as well. Would you mean by that? Will you hear some of it? Simply in the language that people use darker skinned people referred to with terms like opt, which means slave Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt darker skin than his predecessor was sometimes referred to as his predecessors black poodle you turn on the television in the Middle East and black face is fairly common sight on Arabic language television and no doubt that kind of racism manifests in in everyday life in lots of ways, it does you see it in areas of life. March choice of partner you have families that will see skin color as a marker for Associate Comic Status Lighter skinned people seen as being wealthier and more educated. You see it in the workplace as well in Iraq, for example, where there's a black community that has been there for at least a thousand years they to this day struggle to obtain government jobs and they're often relegated to doing menial work and living on the outskirts of society. You see it as well in the Gulf states where there's almost a racial hierarchy to employment. If you walk into a Nice Hotel and the Gulf you might see black migrants from Africa working as security guards or as porters. You will see them far less often in jobs that require interaction with customers. Waiters hairdressers, things like that those jobs which are better paid than less taxing often go to lighter skinned workers from Asia or from Arab countries I mean racism has been very much on the agenda over the past few months because of the the killing of George Floyd protests that erupted across the world did that wave of protests hit the Arab world as well? The protests themselves. Didn't reach the Arab world. This is a region fortunately protest often a criminal offence of we didn't see much in the way in street demonstrations either in solidarity or around the region's own issues with racism but it has certainly escalated the conversation that's taking place both online and offline. There was a video that circulated quite widely earlier this summer was shot by a Palestinian actress condit's. Who recounted some of the just casual bigotry that she's heard and day-today Life Semis Ben Aston Headache. Mariam. People often argue that it's harmless. It's just words. And allow. Them. One of the points that she was trying to make in this video is that it does hurt people and that it does have an influence not only on the targets of it but on societies broader attitude towards Black Arabs, and do you think having these kinds of discussions on social media and the like will make much of a difference? Is it enough having a conversation about these? Things is certainly better than nothing. But one thing that we've seen certainly in America through years and years and years of protests against racism and police brutality is that just having a conversation doesn't actually bring political change or social change. That's something that takes a long time and it also takes concerted effort in politics and education, and unfortunately one of the problems in countries across this region. Is that there are few avenues to do that, and so it's good to have a conversation about these things but. The ways that you actually go about making concrete change. Unfortunately, those ways are often blocked in the middle. East. Thanks very much for joining US greg.

Really captures what the book is about You are on a panel as something called Linda Con- This is July of two thousand eighteen, this obviously after twenty sixteen elections where? The outcome wasn't what you would have hoped. the the panel was called West next liberals, and you describe the scene I'm going to set the stage for a you call them. The end of the Bernie Sanders supporter, White, male millennial, an uncompromising rock round input to heckle. Anyone deemed insufficiently her aggressive, so let's set the scene here. You're trying to get your whites across about why you think. Two Thousand Sixteen ended as did you give this radical statement? All of the Democratic candidates were need to do a better job of speaking to and about the issues that black women in particular care about the most is they want win that twenty twenty Democratic nomination, and that's why Bernie didn't win and Two Thousand Sixteen Oh, my goodness. shocker. But then what happened? I got booed. I I was booed and heckled It was it was very hostile. And to be clear. I went to political in twenty nineteen. The same thing the same thing happened. I was booed for articulating berry similar points, the mention of aiming over shars name got who's from those same folks, and so there's a gender piece, but there's also a race piece on that I was trying to highlight because for so long. Black women have been electing Democrats. You Know Doug Jones is in the Senate because of black women organizing particularly on their own to keep a child Molester Roy. Moore alleged molester out. Out of the United States Senate and I think that to the credit of those lack women. They didn't need to be told to organize to prevent that reality from happening, they knew that Doug Jones had a history of prosecuting the murderers of the four little girls in Birmingham, and so they he had a connection to that community, and I think that more Democrats should look bad example and the exact example like Stacey. Stacey, Abrams folks who really go directly to black women and you know essentially engage with activists and community leaders who are already doing the work I take. That was a Eureka moment for you and that at that meeting in July twenty eighteen. was that your Rica Moment for you? What did that crystallize for you? We'll I felt like there were things that were very obvious to me that we're not obvious to those. Those who were around me I. think that the folks in the room, particularly the white men in the room they think the majority of the base. They think that they are the most important part of the dates and I was just trying to demonstrate that that was no longer true. It's not going to be true going forward as demographic shift I'm. The coalition's become different. You know now. We're in a moment where. We have to focus on this specific issues so that we can build this rebuild this. Obama s collision, and those folks are part of it, but they don't even want me in their ten. You know if I'M GONNA. Get booed just by pointing out some of the ways in which we can improve our messaging towards communities of color, and you're GonNa do me. I think that you need to do some reflection on you know. Why do you feel hostility You know towards a woman of Color Black woman making that point. You make a big point in the book that all politics is really entity right now and I. Don't I'm Devin g politics has taken on. A bad connotation in political circles at least some political circles. You say that that's wrong. Why is that wrong? We'll percival these. The I talked to her. Recently, we were just laughing about the fact that of course a term that was fine by black dumbness in nineteen, seventy seven, would all of a sudden be a bad thing right once once it becomes more of the part of the mainstream conversation as soon as people start being like Oh. Maybe that's the thing. Thing we should pay attention to. It is demonized by those who understand the efficacy of leaning into identity based politics as the coalitions of people of Color and those demographics are shifting, and so, what would I think in in what I'm trying to say in the book? Is that Donald Trump has exposed the fact that what we've been doing in the Americas essentially white identity politics the whole time we particularly been leaning into that and this moment as the president. Runs and explicitly racist campaign. Targeting a particular segment of his base that he thinks response to those kinds of messages, and they are on, and I think that you know what we need understand. The progressive side is that we cannot fall into this notion that identity based politics is dad because they understand the demographics ships. That's why they're suppressing the vote That's why they're voter. ID laws targeting communities. We need to understand that the the math and the demographics on our on our side and. And that identity based politics is authentic way to speak to those communities. I'M GONNA quote easy of ribs again just because she's. She's the smartest person on this particular issue. I think in this moment on, but she says identity politics is sort of like the flip of I. Don't see color like I see you right and I feel like that's a really powerful validation to communities who have been historically marginalized and ignored by the political establishment interesting. You're saying that the. President trump and his will. His whole reason for being politics is white identity politics, but method you just don't hear very often I mean we talk about identity politics. They're genuine talking about the old color of women to some extent for generally people color. You know why is that? Because we default to whiteness, we don't see. Whiteness is an identity, and it is an identity and I think Donald Trump finally exposed that to a lot of white Americans who who didn't have to think about race. You didn't have to think about gender or the intersection of identities, and how that is impacting people I, think Ovid has has made that clear to a lot of people on, and you see this racial reckoning happening, and all all different sectors result of people, just thinking things through in a different way they're. They're noticing more inequities and systems, and that's important. Important because that means that if white Americans can understand the ways in which their whiteness benefit them in ways. They didn't realize you know. It's those things that they didn't have to think about. They didn't have to think about. You. Know going for a jog and maybe getting shot because you were mistaken for Burger this is not an experience that a white person is having, and that's a privileged, but that doesn't make you a racist that just means that you have certain privileges you know. I have certain privileges I'm able bodied. I have a certain level of education and. Socio economically pretty privileged. And I would say that that's that's okay I. Mean I can just identify those things about myself, and that doesn't mean that I'm a bad person or that somebody that has a white privilege as a racist. It just means that you have to have an understanding of how those privileges then offit you, and then you need to reach back and help other people, and that's fundamentally. I think my.

It will not affect legitimate rights and freedoms of individuals which are protected under the Basic Law and relevant international covenants applied to Hong Kong. They include among. The freedom of speech of the Press of Assembly of demonstration and of procession. In short, the legislation will not undermine one country, two systems and Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy. So Nathan Law she's basically saying it won't make any difference to all the democratic freedoms that you cherish so much and yet Joshua Wong. Your colleague said this will be the end of Hong Kong. We know it very briefly. What do you want? The US France the West the democratic world to do about this given. How dependent everyone is on China trade and economy? Well, WHAT CAROLINA!

Or any changes? into society has to be cushal at by The Movement from Bolt on so we hope that that would be more comfortability for the government. There will democracy autonomy. Given what you're saying and how you describe this new law, One Country Two Systems. That's what Hong. Kong was promised. Where do you think that actually stands now? Voiceover at the end? If you look at the core values of one country, two system, which is Heidi, will autonomy and Hong Kong people ruling. Coma trains democracy. Then these two things I'll finished now under the National Security Law Beijing Appointments officials in the agency in Hong Kong, which could authorize the decision of the Hong Kong government. And well the secret police and oldies truck on and law implementing call, and we can have a seat course they on the dish willing so yeah one-country-two-systems basically, and so if one country two systems. This is over, then what are you? What is the new iteration of Hong Kong that you want to say? Well. Well. This is the current state. Before us, of course, we need to fight for autonomy and democracy and this Kong people deserve and The ending of one-country-two-systems signals a huge breach of China on the international obligations and his promises to people, and this should be condemned by the international community. As a result of all this change I imagine that for many people leaving is is probably becoming more and more attractive as an option. What does that mean for Hong Kong's future in your estimate. Well off a phone call citizens, even though they are thinking leaving, but there are many of them thinking stay and to fight on their own capacity on their own front. For me, going out means I have to. Put My percent at folks on the international campaign international life because work. For the others they have their own well calculation and decision. To for me. I don't think we'll see massive outflow. Young, Collins, but as long as that he's options when they are in grave danger. They have the choice. You've said that you feel that your your decision to leave was a strategic one for the movement I? I wonder if there's a part of you, that feels that you've you've also maybe let some people down by leaving. Well my leaving I receive a little bit encouragement and support especially from the Dodge Gras community and many of us have witnessed the white terror spreading home call our friends at the facebook account did attain the Post that supports off to move them into win, and so forth so we can see that imminent danger and we all agree that we need to have some public. To talk on the international level to around the close of international funds of the movement. So I think I definitely receive any kind of criticism, but I think generally people. People think that that is a news and is a very strategic movement. And on a personal level. How does that feel for you to have been chosen as the person to do this? Why it's definitely helps, you have to leave behind your family's your friends or even the two cats that you're on the streets. these are not easy choice, but for me..

The top lawmaker in the House has some thoughts about this as well. Debate over Confederate symbol should not expand to all historical figures who own slaves, says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. I do believe that people have committed treason against the United States of America. They're statues should not be in the capital like Alexander Stephens v P of the Confederacy, who once argued that slavery was the natural condition of blacks and the foundation of the Confederacy.

I you know at the moment is what's happening Foot for the activists in some of fleeing some.

When the police came and cleared that off the streets after seventy-nine days, it went very quiet here.

A Dual Engine Flameout in a Cessna Citation II

"Bruce. I'd like to start with <hes> with you and jerry. The situation that we're gonna talk about is one that i don't think i've ever i heard about before and that is a dual engine flameout and a cessna citation and what we would refer to as <hes> what's commonly called a dead stick landing we sl were we're quite alarmed with the situation that you guys were presented with and <hes> we <hes> helped move the industry to put together. Some protection measures that other other pilots might not find the same. <hes> incident happened to them but bruce if you <hes> if you don't mind you jerry. Can you set us up with just a start the day i know it was a a flight probably a relatively routine flight from naples to niagara falls and do you mind just a setting it up and tell tell us the story sure. Absolutely we started that morning. As any other day we started at the base upon gorda they loaded up her plane reflected it just as we normally would not expect anything nathan law the norden ordinary fueled up enough fuel to get to naples knowing that we had to go later to niagara down to naples picked up our patient. We topped topped off with fuel from there. We loaded up and it was just like any other day. We loaded up. We're in the plane and we're at altitude cruise along at three five zero. Oh so far nothing's happened so i'll back up just a little bit airtrek. Your mission is <hes> patient mobility is that is this a fairly typical <hes> run for you guys. Can you talk a little bit about airtrek and what you guys do airtrek an air ambulance business and we've been in <hes> transporting patients <hes> <hes> this was a pretty typical flight <hes> where we started out of our base. We've positioned to another airport in this case naples and we generally go out of here so that we can meet landing weight at the other at the next airport so they put about forty two hundred pounds of fuel along here so each of the airplanes that were involved in this incident <hes> fueled with about four hundred fifty gallons of fuel here repositioned to naples where our medical staff goes into the hospital picks up the patient and then bring them back out while they're doing that the the the pilots post-flight and then reprieve flight the airplane and add what additional fuel that they need it that that place in this particular case naples and then they depart and go generally nonstop to their destination which in this case was niagara falls for these two gentlemen okay got it so oh fuel up at <hes> at punta gorda very sure short hop down to naples to pick up your patient something that's routinely done pretty commonly done and and is <hes> is punta gorda the home base for <hes> for airtrek. Yes it is okay all right so somewhere. You're you're familiar with operations. This put the fuel on board a lot of consideration into your weight and balance in your performance and and the things you think about when you're going <hes> that long distance in these these kinds of <hes> airplanes and now <hes> bruce you've mentioned that <hes> you're route of flight was from naples to <hes> niagara falls and i notice as i track that out here <hes> on the four flight looking at <hes> identifier alpha papa fox to india alpha golf and part of that flight <hes> you're about probably twenty five or thirty miles over the atlantic ocean. That's correct. I don't remember specifically that day if they give us direct right out normally it's it's more like <hes> they send you over. Lakeland ish area and then direct but we were at some point as much as twenty miles offshore. If i remember correctly yeah got it and so so far so good you're climbing up to flight level three five. Oh you're in a <hes> citation to. I believe is that right. That's correct okay citation citation to great performing airplane. I'm also typed in a in a citation <hes> three <hes> five to five type rating and so <hes> they're just great great performance airplanes. The citations are great for the missing. You're using it for the so far so good nothing unusual you're cruising altitude and then <hes> would you mind what happened next ex- sure we're in normal cruise. Everything's going as as expected and you know we've already. We're on step. We've picked up speed. We're an hour and twenty in very uh routine nothing nothing and i find myself fidgeting with the number one engine trying to get the end one fan speed where i wanted it and it was kind of reacting a little different than normal but not enough to be alarming not enough to even make note of <hes> after seeing me fidget aged with for a bit jerry actually asked me. What percentage are you looking for and i'm like well you know hundred and three percent ever take you know i just like being there and <noise> <noise> as we're messing with it. It's just kind of acting a little funny and i said to jerry you know i'm gonna pull this back to about ninety percent see what it does and then i'll put it back up because i just wanted to see how it just felt abnormal not alarming but abnormal so we pulled the number one engine back to about ninety percent of course it's it's pulled back without issue no problem and then when i tried to roll it back up towards the one hundred percent it went down to eighty nine eight eighty seven and continued to school back from there. That's when we <hes> said okay well. It looks like we're losing the number one engine. Let's ask for lower now that time jerry called up and ask a._t._c. if we could get one five fifteen thousand and about where were you at this point. <hes> geographically were you. Were you feet wet over the east coast florida or were you. We were probably closer to a beam savannah out over the water. We wear we're feet wet. I think we're beyond florida just just somewhere right there around florida georgia in that area got it and for our listeners not that familiar with the with jets jets and fan speeds. It's it's not uncommon to run in your in. One fans speed it over one hundred percent right. Can you just talk to us a little bit about the difference between in one and into your fan speeds and the things you're looking at for a jet engine sure of course just like a and flying. J got a <hes> if you look in the book. You've got a certain r._p._m. Setting that you're looking for we have a similar thing. It's just based on the n one fan speed. That's basically the r._p._m. Of the front of the front half of the engine <hes> <hes> in this case the book reads the charts performance charts at minus twenty degrees celsius which is what it is up there at thirty five thousand we're able to run the fans of two hundred and four percent so i don't particularly myself like to just hold them at a hundred and four that doesn't give me any leeway if it sneaks up on me because it gets colder so i usually answer closer to one hundred and three percent okay got it great and so <hes> you mentioned that it didn't feel right but it was more that you weren't really feeling anything. Anything is more. You're just you're cruising at altitude monitoring your engine instruments in your cross-check and you're noticing that in one just isn't quite where you want it right. Yeah yeah your typical response on the thrust levers when you push it forward a little bit you expect it to bump up a tenth of a percent or if you pull a back you know you'd expect a tenth of a percent and it really it wasn't reacting the way you'd expect everything was perfectly smooth and there was no actual feel and the butter meter but the reaction of the percentage percentage to the thrust setting wasn't what was expected. Yeah wasn't quite just based on your experiences. Just seems like a little bit of a head scratcher right and this isn't quite right or we're actually had we actually had a pretty good split on the throttles by then you know where they the number two where it should be number. One is actually above it and we weren't anywhere near the same r._p._m. Okay yeah so that's looking different to physically the throttles are are separated. Were typically. They're matched up. You might have a fraction the difference between the the number one engine number two engine throttles but for the most part they're pretty close together in this case. You're seeing that is a pretty good physical difference. In were you have those <hes> so that's another kind of this right yeah okay and so <hes> so you pull the engine back <hes> the engine rolls back but then when you go oh to push it up it doesn't roll back up and actually starts winding down on you and so obviously that's alarming you know now. You've got a problem with the number one engine and you're we're at thirty five thousand feet walk supllies. What would you do from there well. We know what thirty five thousand with a single engine. We're not going to be able to maintain that altitude so the first thing before even even figuring out. What else do we just know. We need to go down so we've asked for one five fifteen thousand. They granted that to us fairly quickly <hes> within seconds. We've determined that this engine is probably not gonna come back to come back to life so we've asked for <hes> radar vectors to an airport at this case at this time. We just asked for an airport a large airport with nice weather. They suggested three of them. One of them was savannah sounded great. Yeah yeah we started punching in the information for savannah into the g._p._s. checking the weather check and runways of course as suggested. It seemed like a perfect fit for needs it was within within a reasonable distance and we started headed that direction and so when the <hes> jury when the engine started rolling back when you when you post it forward and you actually got a roll back on the r._p._m. And it kept rolling back so you knew it was eventually going towards zero and at that point had you still not had any kind of <hes> unusual indications. <hes> you know <hes> fuel. Indications are low fuel pressure or anything like that yet. No that was interesting. The fuel-filter light did not go on and so we weren't sure what we had here. If we had a mechanical problem what it was but other than stayed very smooth smooth just was rolling back and we never went zero <hes> the engines div returning anywhere between twenty four and twenty eight percent yeah interesting okay which makes sense right if it as long as he can freely windmill. It's not gonna go to zero percent. It's gonna it's gonna wind mill. <hes> do some air pressure in there but yet <hes> so you know and you could you feel the thrust
