accidently foot on the brakes while trying to take off….

Asked by: 790 views ,
Commercial Pilot

Could you tell me what accident happened because a pilot of a commercial airplane suffered from Multiple Sclerosis and did not feel that he rested his foot on the brake pedal instead of on the resting place, while taking off? The plane crashed.

I saw a video on Aircrash Investigation (or some other series) on YouTube about this accident, but I can't find it again.

I'm suffering from MS myself and would like to show that footage as an illustration of the severe problems of MS in aviation.

    I can’t really speculate on the possible answer to your question, but if you know the date and aircraft type of the accident you referenced, you should be able to find the NTSB report archived on their website. Reading the official analysis of the event should provide a great deal of insight into the issue, because the NTSB, if their investigation is complete, will have done all the leg work to determine the cause and contributing factors to the accident.
