Alaska Airlines Flight 261 was a regularly schedules flight service from Puerto Vallarta in Mexico to Seattle with a stopover in San Fransisco. On 31st January 2000, while flying over the Pacific Ocean along the west coast of California, the McDonnell Douglas MD-83 suffered a full-scale failure of it’s horizontal stabilizer trim system that resulted in the aircraft plunging 18,000 feet into the Pacific Ocean, killing 88 people onboard.

Aircraft used:

Software/Hardware used:
– Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System
– Saitek Pro Flight Throttle Quadrant
– Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals
– Saitek Pro Flight Multi Panel
– Microsoft Flight Simulator X
– Windows Movie Maker
– FsRecorder

P.S I was literally and legitimately flying the aircraft manually and trimmed the stabilizer downward, so I was pulling back on my control yoke like the pilots were on the accident flight, it was super tiring! So just imagine Thompson and Tansky’s situation that day!
