Ok, so I was taking off from Bhutan, which is known for its special approach and surroundings, in my MD-80 (Barely made it off the runway) and as I was climbing over tops about 10nm away :P I noticed my engines were running hot. Because it was FS I didnt really bother doing anything about it, but then seconds later it happened, dual engine failure. And because the only airport I had on my map was Bhutan I had to try to return. So I circled a mountain so I would fly between all of the mountains on my way to Bhutan. And after a long glide I had the runway in sight, I lowered my landing gear and I actually made it!!! Might have broken my nose wheel off but I was on the runway :P

Two incidents within days of each other! Better launch an investigation into the MD-80!!


Having flown from Dar Es Slaam to Nairobi, I refuelled, loaded up (nearly 100% load) and went to the runway heading to Entebbe, then off to Addis Abbaba.

Having got to the runway, I stabilised my engines, threw on full power and began rolling. Just before V1, I noticed the engines where showing abnormalities and aborted the take off, taxied round the whole airport and got ready for the next attempt, not wanting to loose my money for not getting my passengers to their destinations by cancelling the flight.

At the next attempt, I rolled down the runway, all the engines seemed fine this time, got to VR and the right engine started to read a higher temperature than the left one. As I got to gear up, the right engine caught fire and cut out and I pulled the engine fire thing to extinguish it. I then did a circle of the airport and landed safely, nearly hitting a ATR-42 however. Surprisingly...the landing was very smooth considering I only had one engine (I guess it's cause I kept the engine going till the last minute) and everyone walked off un-harmed, accept for my big bill. >_>


Anyway, that's today's MD-80 crash story! These MD-80's... :no:

If that makes the MD80 stupid then the 737 might as well be called stupid as well. The MD80 and DC9 are the in my opinion the best planes still in service today. They are comfortable, not very noisy in the cabin and it just looks good. :drool:

My worst incident was an engine 2 failure on a Innsbruck departure, unfortunately we lost her due to a bird strike at about 500 feet, the engine was subsequently shut down and then we climbed to a safe altitude and landed somewhere in Germany

I was operating a flight from LHR-TLS for ZonExecutive, and I was about 2 hours into the flight, and was on approach to TLS when dual engine failure occured. I glided in to final approach to TLS and then well...let's just say that none of the passengers survived the dive. :P

My worst moment on FSX was landing an ERJ-135 in Philadelphia when I realized it wouldn't slow down.  I went around and noticed that I forgot to disengage the autothrottle.  When I landed (with it off this time) I came in too fast, slowed down as much as I could, then stalled and crashed because of a lack of airspeed.  I just can't win.

I remember flying an A318 into City when the left landing gear failed. Lets just say there's now an Airbus sitting at the bottom of the Thames.

I feel lucky to say that I've never had a crash in Flight Sim. Not in my 10,526 hours of flight experience :)

No. I've always been serious when I flew, back even when I was training in a Cessna 150.
