"Soups embarrassing yeah how embarrassing all right let's start start off with the item one in the feedback vulgar from ray davis via facebook and he said possible crew and listener thoughts and this involves something give into and i believe it was on facebook bahir let me see if i can find it ends channel channel nine news out of sydney okay were you on that often opt yeah it's a fairly well known news channel out they will respond to all right what's what they have to say about this a trainee air traffic controller was at the helm when to quotas planes loaded with passengers passenges came a little too close for comfort the transport safety bureau now investigating the near miss at sydney's domestic airport it was around six thirty pm on august five last year a trainee air traffic controller under supervision gave the green light for at qantas airbus a three thirty thirty to take off from sydney bound familiar at the time a qantas boeing seven three seven was coming into land from brisbane it traffic control realized if the seven three seven continued to land the planes would get true close instructing the seven three seven at around four hundred fate to go around and coming in to land again that put both aircraft turning to the right and they projected flightpaths were converging the seven three seven was instructed to turn turn fo that to the right as the i three thirty received a collision warning alert the first officer at the controls of the i three thirty looked out the right cockpit peep window saying the seven three seven in close proximity above in a climbing turn and reduce the aircraft's angle back to reduce the turn towards the other plane the three thirty captain made a radio transmission saying that was very close air traffic control instructed the i three thirty two v left at the closest point the planes came within one hundred and fifty three meters vertically and seven hundred ninety six made his laterally really of each other the australian transport safety bureau says it's ongoing investigation will include air traffic control procedures control a training and control rola actions and qantas has responded saying out crew follow directions from air traffic control at all times adding even if both aircraft stayed on the same flight pods they were not in danger of colliding the final report including any failings we'll be out later this year lizzie pro nine news okay nine is okay consider yourself fortunate that you did not watch the video that went along with that that audio because the person that came up with all the depictions of what was happening and being described in the audio didn't get it quite right the video i don't know if you guys saw the video shows the eighty three thirty taking off and then the seven thirty seven coming in the opposite direction from above and down like directly opposite the eight three thirty taking off and then it says you know when they say about four hundred feet from the ground they went around there are still way up above the clouds and the at the slow graphic design is four hundred feet and i think what i'm understanding this actually what happened here is that the only mistake that i can see that may have been made by the trainee controller is the fact that he cleared the a three thirty takeoff probably too late or maybe should have had the three thirty delay the takeoff and stay off the runway to allow this other qantas to come in the seven thirty seven to land so what happened is they three thirty is taking off the seven thirty seven is coming in and the eight hundred thirty taking off is not going it'd be off the runway and time so the a seven thirty seven goes round at four hundred feet and probably offsets a little bit to the right now we have two airplanes both in the air one is turning right the seven thirty seven and the against the departure procedure for the three thirty was also kind of a right turn and the three thirty pilot looks out and sees a seven thirty seven up there almost parallels but they're turning away and they just gave some vectors to kind of i get a little bit more separation and that's about it honestly not a very exciting or perilous kind of kind of situation in my opinion i've seen this before and that's why we as pilots have to be very cognizant of what is happening other than what is going on with our own flight so that's why we listen to the radio and hear people clear for takeoff and then we think okay if there is not enough separation on a half to go around what am i going to do with the path at my airplane how am i going how am i going to stay separated from the airplane that's just now lifting off from the runway and that's you know what professional pilots do i've got assigned different interpretation of the video of some more information that i haven't had access to it looks like the guy getting ambon is in direct opposition to the guy landing i'm saying i'm looking at the i'm looking at the video here and say that's why that's a good thing that we didn't play video because the person that depicted all the things happening in the video is completely completely wrong okay so so i'm confused so if you if you if you listen to the audio without looking at that video which will really really throw you off i mean if you look if you watch the video and listen to the audio at the same time you will understand that the the artist's depiction of what happened here is not anything close to what actually happened the three thirty is clear for takeoff in the seven thirty seven is coming in on the same runway behind it or filming because the person who's doing the depiction doesn't understand that journalists freight in one direction at a time it's common actually in australia they do it and sydney.

the holiday because a a stayed here probably tens or maybe even hundreds of nights in my thirty one year career at acme airlines though it's it's kind of bittersweet actually but anyway david who is lives in the boston area was looking at the schedule on the we'll see what do we call it the AP community calendar and notice that i was going to be flying lying from atlanta to memphis this morning the twenty seventh of january and he said i'm looking forward to had just happened to be looking at my twitter feet and i saw somebody tweet i'm looking forward to riding on the mad dog from atlanta memphis this morning and i went what's this about and i immediately recognized your name david because as i mentioned he's a coffee fund qadri member ah classic method and i thought that's cool so i communicated with him and said well let's is there a meet up plan and i said no that my my schedule's wide open for today where we all i did this morning was live from atlanta here left atlanta around what was was about nine thirty ish got here about nine thirtyish with the one hour time change and i said i don't have anything on my schedule at all today and why don't we plan as you know if you have the if your schedule's open why don't we plan on meeting up for like a late lunch early dinner and so that's what we did so we have already in gorged ourselves with amazing using memphis ribs at the blue city cafe and man if you're if you're ever visiting memphis in a really enjoy enjoy a barbecue especially ribs i think that the blue city cafe is the place to go so we had some great beer and awesome ribs and great seafood gumbo and really good local IPA's and and so we walked from over there to over here are much quieter here in the in the hotel bar area we're not sitting directly underneath a television and good in here it's kinda quiet nice good for recording absolutely and dave knows a lot about recording his a studio musician and so we have been having just the best time at least i have can't speak for him just talking about so many things that we share a passion for flying obviously but also music and i you know if you've listened to the show for any period of time you know that when i was in highschool musicals of very very big part of my life and i was thinking that you know ideally i'd i'd become a studio musician i finally realized that to be a studio musician you have to be like in the in the top half percent of of the like the ninety nine point five percentile of talented musicians in my opinion anyway i just figured ads not gonna probably happen for me so i i decided to go with the the flying gig instead but i'm always impressed with people like dave who is a what did you call a multi instrumentalist he plays at all what do you play piano keyboards so all kinds of keyboard instruments synthesizers hammond organ qatar all guitars acoustic electric bass percussion and i sing i've heard him sing a just a couple of little snippets here and there tonight yeah he has he has a great voice much better than mine hammond i love the hammond so playing oregon is so much different front than playing a piano isn't it it really is it's it's a different beast altogether and i grew up primarily piano player and i learned in in the studio from guys who really knew how to play the hammond b three organ that's the one with all the draw bars than the two keyboard layers if you don't know what that is you've you've heard it it's on a gazillion zillion records and it's used worldwide by the started from the church they said they were church organs and then some people started pulling them out on recording studios and it became make the sound what did they call the thing that makes the the classic hammond sound it's kinda like shelly or what is it called the leslie speaker yet the li it's a rotating speaker so it has really really affect again something that you've heard a thousand times and you know your whole life and all sorts of music and and no one knows how it's created but it's a speaker that revolves around and you know just it's a mexico slow sums it goes fast in i don't think it quite goes as fast as the fan and the engine but it gets it gets up there probably not yeah probably not several several thousand rpm the other is probably a self-described destruct but anyway as you can tell i'm really excited to be talking music with dave he went to berkley school of music which is like a very it's a world renowned school and dana he's he's living up in the in the boston area he said he just missed spending time watching that that last sad patriots game this past this season but he had his schedule didn't allow him to come down down to philly yeah he was in new york at the time he said anyway so i you you guys are kindred souls man i know that you can share some some good stories about living a boss he's from newark new jersey originally or that area so anyway so i'm gonna stop hogging the microphone let dave talk a little bit more and then we'll wrap it up so that we don't take up the entire show all right yeah it's been great hanging out with captain jeff down here in memphis this was definitely planned this for a while when i saw the calendar i said this worked out with my schedule that i was going to be getting away this week and heading on the florida i decided to take a pretty severe detour and it's been well worth it because i grew up a complete aggie kyo love aviation my whole life growing up in the suburbs of new jersey i lived on the approach path to newark and always saw the planes flying in and used to go used to travel a lot even very very young than international travel i told you my father was a college professor so he dragged us on vacations sends all summer the all the time so de la flying as a kid in the eleven and as far as being pilot i'm not a pilot though i've had a few hours you know in one seventy two and a diamond DA twenty you sound like a pilot i would say that you're a student pilot yes but i i haven't achieved the you know i remember that exactly anyway it's been it's it's been wonderful and i'm really i'm really glad i was able to bring you back to your roots jeff being right here and i just you know i i stay holiday inn downtown was look like a place to stay and i didn't realize i pick such a historic location for you and bring you back to catholic pilot guide number one right here anyway it's been it's been great i love memphis it's been too long so it's been here so it's been great.

"A great fan of competition i think whilst boeing airbus can leapfrog each other in technology l. but continue to strive to work to better they are the company and they will be competitive with prices and at makes a very healthy both the industry i despair the idea that one or other of those two manufacturers would get such dominant get into such a dominant position asian that they can control what happens in the industry so i this is really good news i think that in most cases competition is a good thing a bow and i go i'd love to fly on this actually to see what it looks like and how it works and it does look a very elegant aeroplane kapernick you mentioned the the use extended use of composites and that's really the reason they were able to do this new wing as because the previous wings were aluminum and not composite or mostly aluminum and i guess this new wing is it's much more composite material lighter and they were able to extend the the wing doing the winglets high aspect ratio which means it's a very efficient you know if you look at the wing of a glider very long thin because aspect ratio gives high levels of lift and low levels of drag and that's the kind of wing they've gone for so i think from that one of you it's going to be a really good performing at craft interesting of the ana mentioned the same thing that i was going to when you watch the video of taking off jeff i realize it's probably very light at takeoff bumped a it barely rotated when the main gear will off the ground and i know detected an extremely flat attitude for landing as well what do you think that's about do you think that's going to be normal across i don't know it might have something to do with the fact as you mentioned the very light you know they they had enough fuel to go up and fly it for what two or three hours i believe but i'm not sure i i'm thinking mostly because it was a light as we know nobody right it's just that i'm used to sing i line as pitch young taylor twelve degrees but full gear come off the the news will have hobby lifted commentators were saying i think the property right is they used quite conservative conservative rightaid speeds i suspect getting mighty of margin in which case it was probably faster than it would be flying at rotate that would be normal wall perations when they've got a il find down right it's just that the lightning speed as well perhaps it was a bit higher that it.

"Airport terminal gates because of the fact that the wings are so so wide and so what but boeing thought of was but let's try to make this a bigger wingspan get a little bit more lift and but still make it such such that it can still use the gates that are in most abundance out there basically the the same kind of footprint or or wing print or whatever you wanna call it as a regular triple seven and so they came up with this idea of course now nick is very familiar with airplanes that be probably flown some who's that their wings actually folded up i'm guessing i don't know have you have the phantom in the whole night had wingfield systems mm s- so many and i think it's quite elegant solution to make sure that this aircraft can operate from all the episode acidini existing triple seven ten because one of the drawbacks of the three eighty is that there aren't that many efforts where it can operate from and you don't want to have an crop with such big wingspan that you'll limited on diversions and places you can actually go to is rather defeats feature the object to this is this is a good idea i i like this idea i'm i'm sure the technology on how and when it folds has been well thought out engineer engineer and of course i'll have to close i into regular inspections that mechanism to make sure that this fatigue because it's obviously a fatigue not point that will occur.

"Affiliates with the pilot curt deeds who worked at the island and express helicopter company with zanoyan i said he considered zoya in a friend and a trustworthy pilot and let's see according to the FAA's okay as pilot certification certification database sablan is an instrument rated or instrument certified pilot who earned his commercial pilot's license in two thousand seven he is also a certified flight instructor instrument instruction for helicopter pilots the database also shows oh boy was up-to-date on FAA required annual the medical exams and this was as a i think june of last year probably last tommy got a a medical certificate so yeah i'm sad story hoping that we'll find out more information about what actually happened here and hopefully we'll be able to learn from yes we always say we want more information formation about things and then a lot of times we just don't get it because the nature of the incident is not high profile enough this is one where we were where we will certainly have a lot more information in the weeks and months munster come i think agreed interesting actually did not know this um for special via far for fixed wing pilots if you are requesting special via far at nighttime you have to be instrument rated and have an aircraft that is iof are equipped but that same at least pilots being i have our certified that is is not a requirement for rotary wing at night i did not know that but we should say i don't think that this night no this this was just planning that i learned i didn't know that either that makes sense it's makes more sense for for helicopter to make sense regarding the the fixed wing thing for you know if you're going to be doing this at night then you had best be instrument rated and the airplane instrument instruments qualified or certified oh okay yeah i can't imagine doing specialty far the why not just do far and a lot of people based on about this accident why not why didn't he display i well the facility that he was going into was not an airport or a or a special pelling helipad that has like an instrument approach procedure to it so at some point i mean he could have started i guess yes i am i bet i guess he didn't need to he was clearly via far until he got up toward the toward the mountains basically and that's when he would have had to transition transition of specialty afar or just land at a an airport in just told the passengers you need to take taxi era a new wbur to you go the rest of the distance and you know i'm sure i guess that's the part of the problem flying high personalities you know well impo- scientists around you don't don't let them down you wanna get to the destination there's probably a time a window they need to be there and there is a lot of commercial pressure to get the job done because you know you don't let these people down now whereas if he'd been there on his own property would have down there not turn turn round and go buy land somewhere else or just said do another day so that's a difficult thing and that may be an aspect that wave will end up considering find out more about it i'm sure that has to be some factor in this whole thing by the way fabien thank you told us that the eurocopter actually became airbus helicopter so we were both right though at yeah yeah i didn't know if it was one of those but i knew i mean nine wasn't it was a sikorsky but i was talking about our and he was checked out on that on the chapter on i guess okay you know just trying to keep it above fifty percent you know which is a nasa struggle somewhere in the vicinity something close the the next item here yes i love the headline serene aircraft slides onto highway after pilot mrs runway this is is he's really missing the runway in the picture i don't either no were you able to see some of the videos oh man such i mean people listeners please do check the show notes and make sure that you see if you haven't already seeing the the one where they're well let me tell you what happened first and then we'll get to the video and iranian passenger plane ended up belly down which is the best way i think preferable yeah in the middle of highway after reportedly skidding off the runway during a botched i landing that's a good description botched landing two of the one hundred thirty six passengers on board suffered leg injuries in the incident in the city of a musher medic said the caspian airlines mcdonnell-douglas MD eighty-three was flying there from tehran state tv quoted a provincial aviation official as saying that the pilot landed the aircraft to light and this caused him to miss the runway so i'm assuming what they mean is they probably landed too far down the runway and didn't have enough brunswick left at the end to keep it on the runway and exited the runway and i guess on the outskirts or per free of the airport in on this very busy looks like at least a four lane highway big road at college boola vont which boulevard racist i'm very nice yes let's they're playing in a boulevard it's he did he did park the airplane without any landing gear left on it a reporter who was on board the aircrafts that the back wheel of the of the plane had broken off the back wheel you gotta have that back wheel yeah and and the plane had skidded on its fuselage all the wheels on based on what i saw on the video anyway so on this one video is so funny because i mean i i can say funny because nobody nobody died and i don't think anybody was seriously injured except for maybe the the egos of the pilots but the the front door is open people are just walking off the airplane like they were planning like a normal flying kick luggage you come back they're just others around the world these people going there does all walking away i'm picking up we're here we arrived at our destination grab a cabin work i guess if you checked your bags than and i'm assuming that they're looking for a ride to the terminal so they can get their well wait a minute electric's is still on boorda's excellent never mind anyway berry very amusing video so check it out very very fortunate that really no one was hurt here really only on the plane but i mean on the highway yeah that's kind of your landing deep do you have anything else an information elam videos i wonder if this is i haven't looked on aviation herald to see if simon has has given us any more information about it have you all been why don't we do that right now while we're while we're talking bauer kind of just hanging out with each other talking aviation let me pull up the aviation herald old which is my favorite website for the sort of thing and.

"Teaser is a loose acronym of the book. Tom Swift and his electric rifle today. A single company accent has a monopoly on producing pacers in the US and most cops carry them but the problem is tasers often. Don't work the way police expect them to today on reveal will looking at why that happens with colleagues at APM reports correspondent Curtis Gilbert finds out how Exxon cornered the taste of market get. What's happened since then? Rick Smith was in his early twenties fresh out of business school when he decided to go into the electrical weapons business. Hello I'd like to thank you for purchasing an air. Tasers the intelligent choice for self-defence. I'd would also like to welcome you into my home. This video is said here because the tasers made my home a safer place and the purpose of this video to help you make your home a safer place as in one thousand nine hundred ninety four at the time. Another company called teaser. Tron was still selling tasers based on Jack covert original design in owned the patents and had the exclusive right to sell tasers to police departments in the US so air Taser went after the consumer market. I mean right now. This is Scott. I'm in the park club nine from a girlfriend. We've just subdued an attack with an error page. We're getting the hell allowed here. You have just with Luke Future of self defense. Dark Age is over but it turned out everyday. Citizens weren't that interested in arming themselves with electrical weapons as Smith explained at an event in Phoenix a few years ago by nineteen ninety ninety eight things were looking grim. We had to cut two thirds of the company fire. You know most of the people that work they're going to you know starvation mode but a whole new mark was about to open up for Smith the patents that were preventing him from selling his tasers to. US police were expiring. It could be a huge opportunity. There was just one problem. The yearly Tasers were unreliable and not very effective. When Smith demonstrated the Air Taser on volunteers? He would hand them a fake knife and tell them to try to fight through the effects of the electricity to attack the camera and some of them were able to do it in order to compete with Taser. Trans Smith needed to make a weapon. That.

The can't see it but phil is on the floor. Dying bullet holes in his chest fi groin and abdomen. He also Oh has six smaller marks on his body. The kind tasers leave behind chief. Del Pozzo says another one of his officers fired one just a moment before the gunshots. Pat's by the time we were done with this encounter. Unfortunately the room was just a crisscross. Massive Taser Wires Phil Story is like hundreds of others all over the country train. Police ended up shooting someone after their teasers prove ineffective. APM reports found more than two hundred fifty cases that followed the same plotline over just a three year period. Tasers failed to resolve the situation and then police resorted to firearms and in more than one hundred of those cases people became more aggressive after an officer fired. A Taser at them had the tasers ineffective many of those people might still be alive in some cases. It's obvious why the Taser didn't work because one or both of the electrified darts missed their target. But with many of the shootings it's much murkier. The darts hit they. Just don't do much and the investigators don't spend much time trying to figure out why why they tend to focus on the bullets that proved fatal. Not The tasers the proved ineffective. That.

"Well tasers worked. Eighty to ninety five percent effective in the field annex on claim that during testing it's Tasers were effective ninety nine even in a hundred percent of the time but police have found it in the field. They don't work nearly that well. It's not that tasers or malfunctioning. That hardly ever happens but they often failed to subdue suspects and some police departments officers say that happens almost half the time. APM reports a team of investigative negated journalists at American public media spent a year looking at what happens when tasers fail. All the correspondent. Curtis Gilbert. I brought a story back in. May he begins by taking us to Burlington Vermont and before we get started. We should warn you that. This story contains some violent scenes and disturbing language when Lynn Martin moved to Burlington in two thousand fourteen. Her income was low enough she qualified for public housing. She was lucky to find an apartment right downtown. It was in a four story brick building built at the turn of the century. It was once a candy factory. The South Square apartments cater to senior citizens and people with disabilities but lynn soon discovered. She was in the minority. There she was one of the few people on floor not dealing with major mental health. The problems five of the people had very significant issues. And there are two of us. Who didn't did you know it was going to be like that when you moved in or was it? Did it kind of come as a surprise. Visit a little startled all to find. It was quite that that identity in the population and by the way ahead. No problems with anybody other than Phil. I just wanted to be very clear about that Phil. Brennan lived right across the hall from Lynn and he suffered from a host of mental health problems including paranoia and disorder related to schizophrenia. You know he would talk to the walls and he started at like four or five o'clock in the afternoon and would quiet. Finally maybe eleven o'clock at night and then it would start up again at like five o'clock in the morning it would be like. Oh you people know I'd do that. Stop bothering me. Stop talking to me. I mean he you know just talked walls walls. In the winter of two thousand fifteen fills conditions started to get worse just about everyone noticed it. His daughter his psychiatrist Kaya Tryst and perhaps most of all the other people in his building one day. Lynn was sitting in her apartment when she heard fill out in the hallway. And this time and it wasn't the walls he was yelling at. It was one of his neighbors.

"Don't those two cartridges the company calls this Exxon academy boot camp, it's part training session part sales pitch. And there's also some time for questions. Anybody Carl Johnson? Yes. A teaser instructor from a small Texas city called Saginaw asked. The first ones, you know, saying that tasers seventy three horse and everything. Talked about the pluses to it or does some of the issues when it comes to the. Layman's term, but the powers he wants to know whether the tasers seven does anything to address what he says are the power issues with the previous generation of tasers the models that put out less electricity. Johnson doesn't mention this. But an officer from his department shot and killed a man a couple years earlier after a lower powered tasers failed to subdue him. Resolve that. The volume down on the effectiveness of the device. No matter where folks were for the short answer is the power level in each pulse hasn't changed. But the tasers seven concentrates that power in shorter more intense bursts, and it puts out more those bursts every second Exxon's weapons director, Shane page tells Johnson that'll make them more effective or just making sure that the electricity that we are delivering is delivered more often in terms of buses, so not more, but more often and more effectively. Exxon has changed something else about the tasers seven. It's range in the past. It's tasers were designed to take down someone from across a pretty big room. But to get those long ranges. There was a trade-off tasers didn't have as dramatic effect on people when they were fired up close. The problem is up close is where cops typically used as IRS. So how do you make teaser that works better? In closer quarters. Well, remember, those little darts that get fired from the taser one of them flies street. And the other one is angled slightly downward. The darts have to spread at least a foot apart before they hit to reliably stop someone. The officer fires at closer range, the darts. Don't have time to spread out one way to solve that is to adjust the angle the darts. Leave the weapon from this. To this. So the spread apart faster. And that's exactly what the new tasers does. Exxon says it will reliably take down people as close as four feet away compared to seven or even nine feet for its earlier models. But it turns out this new idea wasn't so new after all is it through that door. It is through that door. It is actually a vault. The Buchan museum in Minneapolis maintains a huge collection of artifacts all somehow related to both electric city and the human body. The vault is where curator Adrian Fisher keeps all the items that won't fit in the display cases. So we have a lot of electricity generators we have Leyden jars in here we have early kind of parlor game devices little static merry go round carousels and things like that. And this is the Heyzer it's not just any taser. It's a T F one. The very first teaser ever produced we acquired actually in nineteen seventy five we bought it. Just like any customer would Fisher wears white gloves. As he carefully removes it from the box, the Tf one is made of drab grey, plastic. It's part firearm part flashlight the latest supposed to help with aiming and below that are the square holes where the darts come out. Can I take a look at? Yes. Touch or. Yeah. It's in the back. So it's okay to touched. Otherwise, we use gloves. It turns out that the Tf one fired. It starts at the same angle as Exxon's new tasers seven and teasers with that design..
