what trailblazer says is true for most types of passenger airlines with 100+ seats on. some of the smaller stuff like I work on, the apu can not be started in the air and shuts down automatically as soon as there is weight off wheels.  that's when you kak the pilot out for not going thru his checklist!

again, not all engines use air that is bled off the apu to start the main engines but it definitely is the vast majority of them and the 737 is def one of them.  Not sure what he missed that got our friend so upset!

inform us old boy!

Hudson accident (haven't seen the documentary and the film lost me 60 seconds in when Cpt Hero was flying between buildings, which he never did): A320 needs power to drive everything except a few switches and lights in the cockpit. So if they lost both engines he would've HAD to start the APU to have any form of control over the aircraft.

I'd bet my freshly made cup of coffee the APU ranks pretty highly on the engine-out checklist.

So, wherethefukareyou, please enlighten us with your theory.

I thought that's where the toilet flushes out.

Toilet system is fully self-contained.. a honey-sucker empties the tank and pumps clean blue chemical liquid into the supply tank.

Then why do we get so much kak from above?

Should have stayed with the film. The buildings are a recurring nightmare the pilot has as a result of flying out of New York often. 10 more seconds and you would have got that. Interesting how the American authorities are always trying to achieve a pilot error ruling so as to save the big insurance payouts. Amazing how few people can actually put themselves in the pilots shoes in a crisis like that. To think the Simulator pilots new before their attempts what was going to hapen and what they were going to do.

Admittedly I was about to switch off in disgust when my phone rang allowing me to see the rest as I left it running while I took the call.

Don't they also have a ram air turbine for emergency power?  Not sure if the latest model 737 has it.
