Pilots of AF11 had a serious issue with commands on final approach to Paris.


Recommended Posts

The crew of AF11 from New York JFK to Paris CDG had to deal a serious issue at very low altitude this morning Tuesday 5 April 2022.

The Boeing 777 (reg. F-GSQJ) was on approach to runway 26L when the crew reported an issue.

The plane didn’t respond to the commands and started to deviate to its left. Pilots could not talk to the ATC as they were dealing with the issue. We can hear them fighting with the commands in the following video.

They finally managed to go around at only 1,200 ft then hold 4,000ft and returned to Paris CDG for a safe landing on runway 27R.

Air France statement:

Air France confirms that the crew of flight AF011 on 4 April 2022 from New York JFK to Paris-CDG aborted their landing sequence and performed a go-around due to a technical incident during the approach.

The crew mastered the situation and landed the aircraft normally after a second approach.

Air France understands and regrets the discomfort felt by customers.

The go-around is defined by the authorities, aircraft manufacturers and Air France as a normal procedure. The crews are trained and regularly instructed in these procedures, which are used by all airlines to guarantee the safety of flights and passengers, which is an absolute necessity for Air France
