Bolivian Plane Crash-Lands, All Survive
Sounds like fun.
So crash landing in the bog was supposed to be safer than the bad weather at the fucking airport?
I'm not sure what sort of "mechanical failure" (as reported by the Flight Engineer) would make all three engines fail simultaneously. This seems like a fairly clear-cut case of "the alternate airport was just a LITTLE bit too far away".
If they hadn't been carrying 10 tons of blow, they could have carried enough fuel to make the alternate airport.
I wonder if they could've used the coke AS fuel.
