Had Van Zanten applied full flaps during takeoff could the tenerife disaster been averted?
In the tenerife airport disaster,had Van zanten deployed full flaps on seeing the pan am flight during takeoff roll, could he have managed to clear the plane just in time? (of course with full engine power,etc..)
I do agree there was hardly any time for the capt.to analyse.
Anyway i'm already completely aware about what were the other factors that were responsible for the crash.so please stick to the question.the question is just a reflection of my personal interest on the problem
