I have a hypothetical scenario and I was wondering if any experts might be able to speak to it. I will lay out the scenario, with a couple of specific questions, and maybe some honest answers will come if I leave out the dog whistle words :)
A plane is travelling at 322 Knots at 6800 feet and wants to simply point the nose down and hit the ground somewhere within a target of 34 acres.
A plane is traveling at 336 knots at 6800 feet and begins a spiral decent reducing speed over the next 2'40" completing a 270º turn, coming out of the turn at 2200 feet. The radius of the descending circle at about 2.75 miles.
From the altitude of 2200 feet, travelling at 312 knots, said plane increases speed over the next 40" finishing at the wall of a great invisible barrier going 488knots, just five feet of the ground. The descent rate increases exponentially beginning at 3200ft per minute until getting to 5800 feet per minute travelling from 418 to 488 knots from 1200 feet to 5 feet in 12 seconds.
How easy or difficult would any of these maneuvers be to undertake, say in a Boeing 757, for a pilot who
- had just been hired by a major airline?
- Has several 1000 hours of flying experience
- Could fly a Cessna if someone sat next to her to watch in case things went south (literally).
A sincere thank you - while this post may seem to have some snark, it is asked with 100% intellectual sincerity.
