Sounds like good basis for a big lawsuit.

This may point to a chaotic emergency response protocol. When a plane breaks up on the runway, there's always a chance some unstrapped or even a strapped down passenger may be ejected from the plane. Tragic to say the least. You survive a plane crash only to be squashed by a responding fire truck.

No, there is no basis but there will be many lawsuits and millions of dollars in payments.

Southwest Airlines 737 crash lands at La Guardia.

http://news.sky.com/story/1119203/la...people-injured

Southwest seem to be having some problems. I watched a documentary here in the UK last weekend about crashes and they've had two 737's have mid flight structural failures and were also fined $7m (iirc) for poor safety/maintenance. I'm not sure what the time line is for these incidents though.

they also had 2 runway overshoots but besides that they never had a fatal crash not to many airlines that have been around for a long time can say that

There was a third pilot in the cockpit (from the second crew) and it seems that none of the three bothered to monitor the airspeed until it was too late. Not only that, but they had to ignore glide slope landing lights which indicated that they were too low (the third pilot could not see these). It's a mystery. How much backup should you need?

U.S. regulators order foreign airlines to use automatic landing at San Francisco

SINGAPORE, July 30 (Reuters) - U.S. aviation regulators have mandated that foreign airlines must use automatic landing aids, instead of visual cues, when approaching San Francisco International Airport where an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 crashed last month.

The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement that it has noticed a higher number of aborted landings, or go-arounds, by foreign carriers conducting visual approaches after last month's incident involving the South Korean carrier.

The FAA added that it was looking into an incident involving an aircraft operated by Taiwan's EVA Air on July 23, when it approached San Francisco at a lower than normal altitude.

The FAA said that it would assign "alternate instrument approaches", including the use of global positioning systems (GPS), to foreign airlines on approach into San Francisco. U.S. airlines are not affected by this rule.

This comes as ongoing upgrade works to two of San Francisco's runways, 28R and 28L, mean that pilots will not be able to use glide slopes, an instrument landing aid, until late August. These guide pilots down a specific path until they land.

The Asiana pilots were trying to land at runway 28L using visual cues when last month's crash occurred. The aircraft was also flying at a lower than normal altitude before crashing.

Three passengers died in the crash and investigators are trying to understand why the aircraft was flying so low, and why the pilots waited until the last few seconds before trying to abort the landing.

Pilots can normally conduct either visual or instrument landings during clear weather.

A Korean Air Boeing 737-900, registration HL7599 performing flight KE-763 from Seoul (South Korea) to Niigata (Japan), landed on Niigata's runway 10 at about 19:44L (10:44Z) but overran the end of the runway and came to a stop with the nose gear off paved surface and down a slope and the main wheels barely on the paved surface of the runway end safety area. No injuries occurred, the aircraft received no damage.

Emergency services attending to the scene reported both passengers and aircraft remained unharmed.

Aviation incidents are very saddest and depressive incidents. None of any passenger or crew has a single chance of being saved.

They are tragic indeed.

However, on a positive note, the number of fatalities and accidents has been on a decreasing trend every succeeding year.

In short, aviation safety is at work. =)

A UPS A300 has reportedly crashed at Birmingham, Alabama, USA today.
http://www.abc3340.com/story/2313215...ash-in-tarrant

It's not yet confirmed that it's actually a UPS A300, but early reports came out with this information straight away. Apparently there's a big fire and several large explosions.

Flight from Louisville, Kentucky to Birmingham, AL.

UPS Flight 1354 accident in Birmingham – Alabama USA

14 August 2013 Press Release

Airbus regrets to confirm that an A300-600F operated by UPS was involved in an accident shortly after 09.50hrs (UTC), at Birmingham, Alabama today. The aircraft was operating a scheduled service, Flight 1354, from Louisville, KY to Birmingham AL.


The aircraft involved in the accident, registered under the number N155UP (and with ‘manufacturer serial number’ MSN841), was delivered to UPS from the production line in 2003. The aircraft had accumulated approximately 11,000 flight hours in some 6,800 flights. It was powered by Pratt & Whitney engines. At this time no further factual information is available.


In line with the ICAO Annex 13 international convention, Airbus will provide full technical assistance to the French BEA as well as to the authorities who will be responsible for the accident investigation. A team of specialists from Airbus is being dispatched to Alabama.


The A300-600F is a twin-engined widebody freighter aircraft. The first A300-600F entered service in 1983. At the end of June 2013, 104 A300-600Fs were in service.


Airbus will make further factual information available as soon as the details have been confirmed. However, the investigation remains the entire responsibility of the relevant authorities and it would be inappropriate to speculate into the cause of the accident.


The concerns and sympathies of the Airbus employees go out to the families, friends and loved ones affected by the accident of Flight 1354.

The A300-6F is a reliable workhorse for both UPS & FedEx. I guess we should wait for the NTSB investigation to determine the cause for this accident. I feel awful for those two pilots who got their life cut short so soon.

A United 767-300ER had a nose gear collapse at the gate at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas.

no passengers were on board when this happened.
