How to crash an airplane – Nickolas Means | The Lead Developer UK 2016

#Nickolas Means #the lead developer #tech lead #lead dev #Education
On July 19, 1989, United Airlines Flight 232 was en route to Chicago when a mechanical failure caused the plane to become all but uncontrollable. In this unsurvivable situation, the flight crew saved more than half of those onboard. How did they do it?
Flight crews and software teams actually have a lot in common, and there’s much we can learn from how the best crews do their jobs. What can we learn from the story of United 232? While this talk won’t earn you your pilot’s license, you’ll definitely come away with some fresh ideas on how to make your team even more amazing.
Nick hails from Austin, TX, the Taco Capital of the World. When he’s not busy eating tacos, he’s the VP of Engineering at Wellmatch Health, working with an incredibly talented team of developers to bring transparency to healthcare pricing. He’s a huge believer that software development is mostly human interaction and that empathy is the key to building great software.

"It was not until 35 minutes after the crash that rescuers identified the debris that was the remains of the cockpit, with the four pilots alive inside. All four recovered from their injuries and eventually returned to flight duty."

15 years after that crash I was asked to edit a video by the GM at the plant that repaired the fan blades for that engine. He told me he'd never forget the day that he got the call from NTSB telling him to gather up all of the records for the engine repairs and be in Chicago the next day along with the Quality Manager.
I still work at the plant here in 2020 and many of the folks who worked to repair commercial engine fan blades are retired but many more are my friends who work there. I know bringing up United 232 is taboo. The repair service was cleared of any wrong doing but my friends still wish they had a crystal ball to find the tiny crack that lead to the failure.
Capt. Al Haynes who passed almost a year ago along with the 3 other crew members were heroes that day.
I take my job very serious, even though I'm not a tech or quality control, maintaining the computers and integrity of the data used to repair planes is my job. Watching this video is a reminder to try making everyone there be a team player to repair those magnificent flying machines.

I remember having a conversation with my father about this crash. At the time he was an airline pilot with 30,000+ hours. He was known for successfully pulling off maneuvers that simulator check pilots and FAA checkride pilots had never seen performed before successfully. But when I asked him about this particular crash, he just said, "I couldn't do that." UAL 232 was a truly amazing feat.

While this talk is designed for software engineers, I believe the principles of leadership can be applied to any group. Well worth the watch.

Air Pilot: I learnt how to fly airplanes to overcome my greatest fear.
Someone else: The fear of heights?
Air Pilot: No, the fear of dying alone.
