I find the constant pumping of the throttle while neglecting of the mixture and mags very interesting. I wonder what went wrong?

if your volume is high enough; you can hear the engine chooking

 

i find the coolness the pilot kept

and gracefully controlling the land and crash; just phenomenal

down to the point of selecting where to hit

 

he declaers as they touch; he is going for the trees

and he is telling the other guy to brace useing the top handle

as they head toward the line of trees; amaizing

Yes, this is very interesting. Why they were ignoring mixture control? It's essential to avoid fouling and choking. And what about throttle pumping? Is that a procedure or ignorance?

"Tape?" Showing our age Chris? :Just Kidding:

 

Seriously, that was truly a remarkable "crash", which was rather more of a controlled emergency landing, using the gap between the rather tiny trees rather effectively!

 

I truly wish the pilot had taken the GoPro out and shown the "damage." I have a suspicion that there wasn't much more than some leading edge wing dents. :Applause:

I would have switched mags,tanks, hit the aux fuel pump,tried adjusting the mixture, turning on the carb heat ect if it still wouldn't restart and if it had a manual primer(I think 152s do been years since I've been in one) I'd run that in and out a few times to see if I could get some fuel into the engine. It sounds like the engine was responding some what to his throttle inputs so it might have had a blockage in the fuel line or carb ice.

I would be more curios to know if the full checklist was gone through and there regular maintenance for that aircraft.

For those of you saying you would have done things differently... then you learned nothing from watching that video.

 

Both walked away with no more than a story to tell for it. That's the best outcome possible and clearly that instructor knew exactly what to do to accomplish that.

 

The instructor did everything correctly.

Yes but an off field landing may have been avoided if he had taken other measures to restart the engine.
