China Airlines Touches Down in Grass at O'Hare (Part 2)On June 21, 2018 a China Airlines cargo flight, CI5148, performed a go-around after touching down in the grass during an attempted landing on runway 10L at Chicago-O'Hare International Airport. Weather at the time of the incident included light rain, with 500 foot ceilings and visibility of three statute miles. I don't get it either. (www.youtube.com) More...

Flight data may be important because the pilot wasn't going to discuss the incident, at least over the air. Several airport officials were dispatched to met him at his arrival area.
I'd be interested to see, if ever we get to, exactly when the flight crew took over from autopilot. As was shown in the Asiana SFO crash investigation, many of the crews from this area of the world spend much more time hands-off than our crews do.
I'm interested to know who you mean by "our" when you write "than our crews do". Do you work for another airline, and that's what you're comparing? If so which one, and to what extent do your hands-off hours differ? And is it in training or in on-duty flight or both?
I'm not sure as to what extent they're "not cooperating" but honestly.. I'd be very worried about my career and probably wouldn't want to answer a bunch of questions right there on the spot either. I'd definitely be getting myself proper representation while waiting for official channels of communication.
I saw a picture of the "ditch" that the wheels dragged when touching down on the Grass and I felt chills up my spine
