Featured Vlogger of the Week Allec Joshua Ibay – February 12, 2019

I chose Allec Joshua Ibay: https://www.youtube.com/user/delanyify as my Featured Vlogger of the Week. He vlogs on YouTube, many are about air plane crashes which can be hard to watch as there are often few or no survivors in many of those videos. He also does non-crash videos. He has over 154,170+ subscribers as of a few minutes ago. He has several hundred videos you can watch.

From his YouTube About page:

Have you ever wondered why air disasters happen? Well, this channel answers that. Basing off original accident reports, this channel will explain how air disasters occur, why air disasters occur, and what the industry did about it to make sure these air disasters never occur again.

You may recognize his work if you read my blog post earlier today: In Memory of Colgan Air Flight 3407 February 12, 2009. He takes his work seriously and does what I consider to be a fair and impartial report on each video and tends to include reports by the NTSB or similar agencies. One of the most chilling aspects of the videos is how often human error – flight crew, maintenance workers, or other people, led to decisions that turned a routine flight into one headed for disaster. There are instances where decisions made turned out to be the right decision regardless of outcome. A good example of a positive outcome is the decision by Captain Sully in this Miracle on the Hudson video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0l2pEdbeUI. There were those on the ground later who tried to second guess Sully’s decision, but attempts to recreate the situation with the limited amount of time Sully had to make the call all resulted in crashing, often with the results being far worse than what happened in real life. I haven’t seen the movie Sully with Tom Hanks, but have seen a few YouTube clips showing excerpts. It’s on my To View list. Before watching his new videos, I always check out Wikipedia or another website to see how it turns out.

A nice example of some of his other topics includes this video  Five Amazing Facts About The Tuskegee Airmen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00O0n4iWBWU.
