Still trying to work out why the BBC thinks Malta is US/Canada...

Cessna Caravan piles into a mountain in a hard left bank, American tourists on board. No one walked away. Witnesses said it lifted off then banked hard left and crashed.

I watched the ABC news broadcast as usual . . . .

FR flight STN to AGP is delayed 90 minutes on the ground in the UK and then a further 30 minutes on the ground in Spain. One passenger gets fed up and leaves:

Male co-pilot allegedly slaps female commander, leaves cockpit unattended during Jet Airways flight


http://www.foxnews.com/travel/2018/01/0 ... light.html

Two pilots flying for India’s Jet Airways were grounded after getting into a midflight fight during a 9-hour trip from London to Mumbai on New Year’s Day.

In the altercation, which occurred shortly after takeoff, the male co-pilot allegedly slapped the aircraft’s female commander, prompting her to leave the cockpit of the Boeing 777 in tears, according to sources for The Times of India.

“She stood in the galley sobbing,” said a source. “The cabin crew tried to comfort her and send her back to the cockpit, but in vain.”

The male co-pilot, still in the cockpit, then called out over the intercom for the commander to come back to the controls. When she wouldn’t, the Press Trust of India reported, the co-pilot violated aviation safety rules and exited the cockpit himself — effectively leaving no one at the controls — to persuade her to return, per the Associated Press.

Pegasus B737-800 suffers runway excursion after landing at TBZ. Nothing particularly unusual until you look at where the aircraft ended up!

http://avherald.com/h?article=4b39bd2e

Despite that, only three people were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

That's quite the excursion.

Well this ought to be interesting. A:how much damage will the frame take being dragged or hoisted back up to level ground? Maybe they can get the guys from "Highway thru Hell" to retrieve it? B:the crews explanation of why they let it get that close to that side of the runway.

Honestly, that looks like a challenging airport to land at if the wind is anything other than calm, or very close to right down the runway.

What's the point of an open door policy if inside the open door sits a closed mind?

Just three injuries is remarkable. A few feet further and that would have been a whole lot worse.

That thing is toast. Looking at the rocks underneath it, I suspect the underside of the fuselage has been torn to bits and most probably twisted. Because it is on the outside of the airfield perimeter road, they may even scrap it in situ.

It's 5 years older than the 737 fuselages that fell off that train, and those were trashed.

Incident at HEL this morning, seems like ATC dropped the ball and cleared an ATR to depart over snow-clearing equipment.

Google Translate doesn't like Finnish much, but this bit just about makes sense:

"Both work machines and aircraft have acted in accordance with the authorization. Clearly, this situation has not been in control of ATC," says Veli-Pekka Nurmi Director of Accident Investigation Center for Ylelle.

The machines - one planer and two tractors - had been on the field for snow removal, Nurmi says.

- Once they have been there, a departure permit has been issued to Norra's ATR and it has been launched.

Fun and games at MDQ (Mar Del Plata, Buenos Aires) where Austral E190 LV-CID broke half the nose wheel on its take-off roll, throwing the tyre and a good chunk of the wheel into the weeds. Thankfully the flight crew got things under control and everyone returned to the gate unscathed.

That's a rough one. Impact marks in the street then skidded into the house. Looks like he was trying to get it down in the intersection but was carrying too much speed. Damn shame.

Helicopter brought down by...an elk.

An elk leaped into a research helicopter that was trying to capture it and brought down the helicopter in a collision that also killed the elk, authorities said Tuesday.

The elk jumped into the chopper’s tail rotor as the aircraft flew about 10 feet (3 meters) above ground in a mountainous part of eastern Utah, with its crew trying to drop a net on the elk, said Jared Rigby of the Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office.

The two people on board weren’t seriously hurt, but the elk died of its injuries Monday afternoon.

Helicopter allegedly brought down by a drone.

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/02/1 ... ash_drone/

A helicopter has crashed after reportedly manoeuvring hard to avoid a "DJI Phantom quadcopter", in what could be the first confirmed aircraft accident involving a drone.

The crash was first reported by South Carolina telly station Live 5 News, which saw a copy of a police report stating that a Robinson R22 helicopter struck a tree and landed on its side.

The Robinson, which is a typical basic training light helicopter, was being flown by an instructor and a student. The instructor reportedly told police that his student was practising hover taxi manoeuvring over rough ground on Daniel Island, a peninsula near the southeast US coast port city of Charleston.

Iranian ATR-72 down in mountainous terrain south-west of Tehran. Unfortunately no survivors.

https://www.bbc.com/news/amp/world-middle-east-43103192

Flight EP 3704 left Tehran at 08:00 local time (04:30 GMT) and disappeared from radar about an hour later.

The aircraft crashed on Dena Mountain, 22km (14 miles) from Yasuj, news channel Irinn reported.

The plane was a French-made twin-engine turboprop ATR 72-500.

Those on board were 60 passengers, two security guards, two flight attendants and the pilot and co-pilot.


Rescue efforts are being hampered by bad weather. Icing?
