Dash 8 vs crosswind?

Ok, so a YouTube video is uploading, it’s onto my brothers account accidentally, but deal with it.

This video will show something interesting

It will show a horrific build up to a landing, but it will also show, what happens when you stall/flap over dose/fly on advanced for the first time and get scared of how good people are.

The video is at 48% as we speak and has 2 minutes left, I will comment below with the link, but I wet myself watching it over, this was meant to be me showing a bug I found, but this? Pure gold


I’ll be waiting…

Hey, it’s not even crosswind, just bad piloting skills


please exit runway when able


Why did you have flaps 35? Flaps 35 is meant for steep landings such as LCY. Appropriate angle in a Q400 is flaps 15 when landing.


I’m aware, I was testing a bug I found previously, to see if I could recreated the, I wasn’t supposed to go to 35, it glitches, does it quite a lot for me on android


Looks like you did it on purpose.


I mean, I didn’t but believe what you want, I guess with the configuration I had with te flaps etc may have caused it but it wasn’t intentional

Ha. “Bad piloting skills”. Yes, funny. You are DEAD, son, DEAD.


Oh that was entertaining to watch. Thanks for the laugh bro 😭


Primary Cause: - Lift profile changed by the PIC while in a steep dive at 150 feet AGL (>5 degrees) leading to a huge amount of excess lift that triggered another steep dive (>15 degrees) by the PIC to apparently salvage the landing. The excess decent rate caused the PIC to pull back sharply on the control column, leading to a situation where the aircraft is severely overloaded structurally. Unsimulated aircraft breakup is certain. Since aircraft breakup is impossible, the rapid nose up motion triggers an instant deep stall, putting the aircraft into an uncommanded right roll of approximately 180 degrees and crashing into the ground.

  • Destabilized approach combined with excessive speed.
  • PIC should’ve called go around at 1000 ft when it is clear when the aircraft is clearly not established properly on approach.
  • With the aircraft offset from the centreline by over 150 feet at ~200ft AGL should’ve immediately triggered a go-around call by the PIC.
  • The blame is squarely placed on the PIC for their inability to recognize a destabilized approach and call a go around, poor airmanship led to the PIC attempting to salvage the approach. Recommending all pilots for Flying Development Studio (operator) to go through remedial approach establishment training, APPR mode reliance on previous fleet acquisitions (737BBJ/A318) may be to blame for the lack of hand flown approach experience.

Oh My, Oh Me. IFSB is already figuring out the cause!

I mean, it’s not that difficult with all the telemetry and the camera angles. If only real life investigations are that easy. :)

I saw you landed with the flaps on 35. But You have to land with flaps on 15. Please read Matt’s topic :)

Winds and gusts on max, direction set for crosswind.

First, a go-around:

And a landing, albeit a bit rough:

And a post I made a while back of real life turboprops making Crosswind landings:


Wonderful landing considering the winds are outside of acceptable limits for the Dash-8. Just a quick note to all, the max crosswind component for the Dash-8 is 32 knots, if the winds are outside the limits, I would recommend a diversion to the planned alternate.


Yes we’ve recovered the black box. However, due to the nature of this on going investigation, I can provide no further comment at this time.


The winds didn’t even seem like a problem it’s the pilot watch the yoke. It’s called learn how to fly!!!

Watch the yoke on the screen he’s doing it on purpose or he has no idea what he is doing no further information.
