Another MH story...


Flight MH135 pulls emergency landing for Aussie in labour
The Malaysian Inside | 24 October 2014
http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/m...ssie-in-labour

Malaysia Airlines today did the country proud when flight MH135 made an emergency landing in Bali after an Australian passenger went into labour.

The Australian Associated Press (AAP) reported Bali's Ngurah Rai airport managers Angkasa Pura and Herry A. Y. Sikado as saying that flight MH135 from Kuala Lumpur to Brisbane requested a priority landing today as the pregnant woman was "about to give birth".

Four dead in Wichita as plane hits Kansas airport building

Quote:
At least four people were killed and five injured when a small plane crashed into an airport building in Wichita, Kansas, officials have said.

Firefighters responded at about 09:50 local time (14:50 GMT) to a "horrific fire" after a plane crash-landed, Fire Chief Ron Blackwell said.

Four people remain missing, but a search was put on hold after a portion of the building collapsed.

The Beechcraft aircraft lost power shortly after take-off.

The aircraft hit the FlightSafety International building. Other flights have not been affected.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) spokesman Tony Molinaro told local media the plane crashed while attempting to return to the runway.

AF006 Paris-New York

Air France Flight From Paris to New York Turns Back After Severe Turbulence
A transatlantic flight to New York was forced to turn back after encountering severe turbulence that was strong enough to injure three crew members, the airline said.

The Air France Airbus A380 had just left Paris when it "encountered strong turbulence at the beginning of the cruise phase over northern England, Air France. No passengers were injured, the airline added.

Scientists claim that the turbulence over the Atlantic will increase in the future due to the climate change.

Question: what would be the procedure in a case of an emergency over the midatlantic ?

Let's say both engines malfunction in the location above, would it be possible to glide to Greenland and land there ?

Not an export, but there are small islands that are capable of accepting large jets. A320 can't make it across Atlantic, they make a stop at those islands.

In this case the plane would turn back to Ireland or fly to Reykjavik, Iceland if one engine failed.

But what happends at this location if a double engine failure occurs ?
for how long can an Airbus A330 glide ?

Would it turn around back towards Ireland or continue to Greenland ?

In case of fire or sick crew, what airport would be closest land at ?

Maybe the Azores would be suitable to land at for the southern european flight paths, but what about the northern european flight paths ? I dont see any islands in the northern part of the Atlantic, except Iceland and Greenland.

MH17: Ukraine to blame for obstructing inquiry, Putin tells Najib


Najib held talks with Putin in Beijing on Monday. - Bernama


BEIJING: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday accused Ukraine's government of interfering with the investigation into the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 jet, in talks with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific conference here.

Independent investigators have had little access to the wreckage of flight MH17 in territory in eastern Ukraine in the hands of pro-Russian separatists fighting Ukrainian government forces.

Najib called for greater access to the wreckage but Putin disputed the suggestion that pro-Russia separatists were hindering the investigation.

"The reference that the territory of the crash site is controlled by so called pro-Russian separatists is totally ungrounded," Putin said.

With double engine failure you're pretty much screwed.. Well there has been a double engine failure (fuel starvation) with a A330, glided 120km with no engines which is pretty much the most you can get out of a modern airliner (link to wikipedia) but fuel starvation is quite rare so it's unlikely to happen over mid-atlantic
