  1. So, why did the fuel need to be dumped??? This sounds very suspicious…. everything about this situation is wrong.

  2. The pilots’ first priority in an emergency is “fly the airplane”. The second is “navigate” and get the plane on the ground. The third
    is communicate with other aircraft and the tower to insure that no collisions occur. A heavily loaded plane with a long flight path unfortunately may have to dump some fuel so that it’s landing weight is within safe limits. It can be a matter of life and death for all the passengers and other aircraft on the ground.

  3. This is the WHOLE ATC conversation with the pilot!!! Courtesy of VASA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIA90evz8gs&t=149s
