Flight 236, an Airbus A330-200, had a fuel leak on it’s flight from Toronto to Lisboa, both engines flamed out one after another, the last engine approx. 65 miles away from Lajes Airport, located on the isle of Terceira, Azores. The flight crew sailed the Airbus A330 with over 300 passengers on board towards the island and made a successful emergency landing. Is this also possible in IF?
According to the official accident report the Airbus had a take off weight of 200 388 kgs including 46 900 kgs of fuel. At the time of the second engine flame out the Airbus should therefore have had a weight of approx. 153 488 kgs. That weight I put into IF, at the time of the flameout I had a weight of around 154 400 kgs, so just slightly heavier.
The flight was a night flight, visibility was good, the altitude at the second engine flame out was FL330.
The Video starts a few seconds before the second engine flames out, 64 miles inbound Lajes Airport, at an altitude of 33,000 feet. This is my first, last and only try as I thought it makes no sense to practice it and then show you the most beautiful landing. I had one try and here it is ( Solo server, flight from Toronto to Lisboa, 65 miles inbound Lajes ):
