- Maximum Takeoff Weight 52,290 kg
- Max Cruise Speed M 0.82
- Cruise altitude: 35000 feet
Assume the weather condition is perfect (no clouds or gust winds). Also assume this airplane is fully loaded and just reached cruising altitude at its max speed. There and then, both jet motors immediately stops due to malfunction. No fire or anything, they just stop.
Given this scenario; will this aircraft be able to "glide" downwards for an emergency landing, or will it just drop dead and head for the earth? If it won't glide, how long will it take until it reaches the ground for impact?
(Reason for asking: me, being horribly scared of flying, just took a trip with this exact plane model, and I could not get the above thoughts out of my mind)
