The incident is the latest in a string of embarrassing incidents for the airline, which like other Indian carriers has been suffering financially.

In January, two Jet Airways pilots were grounded for getting into a brawl and storming out of the cockpit briefly during a New Year's Day flight from London to Mumbai.

In view of the latest scare, India's Civil Aviation minister Suresh Prabhu has ordered a safety audit of all airlines and airports, asking the report to be submitted within 30 days. -- AFP

And my opinion (we all know about opinions, don't we?) is that we are done here. Time for the fork.

Y'all really need to lighten up.

Yeah, I bet the throttle was a bit more then "cracked".
As was the guy hand propping...

Willing to bet they never turned the packs back on after engine start.
That's why they have that checklist thingy... ::)

You turn the air conditioning packs off during engine start so you have enough bleed air available to start the engines.
After engine start you turn the packs back on so the aircraft will pressurize.
Of course there's a Cabin Pressure Warning System that goes off usually at 12000 feet cabin altitude.
That's probably what dropped the Passenger Oxygen Masks.

Plenty of reports of First World Pilots doing dumb stuff. I am gratified that I seldomhear or read this from my fellow airline pilots.

Hand-propping has been a no-no in CAP for many years. But maroons still try it.

Thank you for this. Now I will have two things to show at my next Group's Safety Briefing.

Ask them to see this, and analyze the results.

Everything I have seen so far has been very positive, and everyone looks like they are
doing appropriate tasks, etc.

To be fair, there's been a >lot< of recycled releases and media (for example, I saw the same baby
with headphones on from about 5 different angles on various news sites), but whatever, always nice
to see good press and good will, on top of actually doing meaningful work.
