Kathryn's Report - N8014T Crash

Attached is the little audio we have on the flight. Departure with Islip Tower then calling New York Approach to advise of engine failure (pilot side not heard since he was out of range of that LiveATC receiver).

A very sad day - a fellow PALS Pilot and a long-time Bonanzas to Oshkosh (B2OSH) pilot.

RIP Rob.

Minimum dispatch fuel.
Much different from "minimum fuel" calls you hear on an approach frequency for example.

If the fuel was less, they wouldn't have been legal to take off.
So there was never any danger.

They would have needed to return to the gate and fuel up the aircraft.

30 minute delay with idling engines isn't too many minutes extra in the air.
Less than 15 probably, maybe as low as 5?
Depends on the model and how much fuel is used holding vs idling on ground.


The "minimum fuel" meant in this conversation:

This is a document what "minimum fuel" in the air / on approach generally means:

I think someone might be in trouble on this.
Can someone tell me how dangerous this is?
My writers brain is wanting to put this in a novel at some point.

They are pretty new feeds i think.
Can't remember them being there last time i checked.

Anyway right now i have audio on all of them (controller is multicasting).
Also heard a jet at Atlantic Jet Center on the North feed.
