    UNBELIEVABLE! AirAsia pilot flies to Melbourne instead of Malaysia after navigation error

    And to think I fly this route at least twice a year! Profile picture is the AirAsia A330 at Sydney Airport.

    Media report - https://www.theguardian.com/australi...vigation-error

    The full ATSB report - http://www.atsb.gov.au/publications/...r/ao-2015-029/

    Time to pull up Jeehell FMGS, put in wrong coordinates and simulate this scenario!

    JL FMGS does not allow you to insert coordinate from scratchpad or use the slew key to adjust lat/lon

    That was not that way. Load of bs they returned to the airport and landwd. it is impossible to fly to another airport when you have a flight plan. I have flown airliners for 12 years and those are impossiboe mistakes

    Hi dodiano -- the media sensationalize it (no surprise).

    They did not reattempt a landing at Sydney because they had no visual and were redirected to Melbourne with vectors.
