Plane crashes in Ariz, kills six
Quote:
PHOENIX — A small airplane slammed into a sheer cliff in the mile-high mountains east of Phoenix and exploded, killing the six people onboard, including the pilot and his three young children who were to spend the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with him, authorities said.

The body of one child was recovered and dozens of sheriff's search and rescue personnel worked Thursday to recover the remains of the other victims, said Sheriff Paul Babeu.

Good news.

2011 safest year for air travel since 1945
Accidents and fatalities decreased globally this year, except in Russia, according to IATA


It was the best year (so far) for air safety since IATA began recording accidents and incidents.

The first 11 months of 2011 was the safest period to travel by plane since 1945, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

“As of the end of November, global safety performance (for Western-built jets) is at the best level recorded, and is 49 percent better than the same time last year,” said Gunther Matschnigg, senior vice president for safety, operations and infrastructure for IATA.

This makes 2011 the safest year for air travel since the International Civil Aviation Organization began collecting data in 1945. IATA has calculated and published global airline safety records based on ICAO data since 2000.

The number of fatal accidents fell to 22 from 23 last year. The number of passenger and crew fatalities also declined, down to 486 compared to last year’s 786 deaths.

The reporter's saying that the plane was made to land in the dirt. From the video it looks like it landed on the runway.

I also don't see any emergency vehicles, WTF!

The crash of japan airlines flight123 is the single aircraft disaster with the highest number of fatalities. In this accident was the 520 people died on the board. The aircraft suffered an explosive decompression in correctly repaired, which failed in mid aircraft and destroyed the stabilizers and making uncontrollable this aircraft.

Crackup In Siberia Kills 32 of 43 Aboard

Quote:
The ATR-72 turboprop aircraft had just left Tyumen on a flight north-east to the oil town of Surgut when it crashed.

Officials said 39 passengers and four crew members were on board the plane. It remains unclear what caused the crash.

Earlier, local authorities said 32 people had died, but that figure has now been revised to 31.

All of the survivors are in intensive care and doctors are operating on eight of them, according to the state-run RIA news agency quoting hospital officials in Tyumen.

The Itar Tass news agency is reporting that all the crew, which was made up of two pilots and two flight attendants, died.

Damn. RIP to the victims and a full and speedy recovery to survivors.

The FDR has been recovered (no surprise there). Wikipedia says it crashed 2 km S-W of the end of the runway so whatever happened, probably happened either on takeoff (past V1) or immediately after takeoff.

More on UTair 120...

ATR rolled sharply before crash but engines were functioning (FlightGlobal)
Quote:

One local report, quoting the deputy director of Tyumen airport, states that the ATR crew opted against de-icing before departure.

I'm not drawing any parallels, but this episode is worth a watch:
Quote:
On 31 October 1994, American Eagle Flight 4184 fell out of the sky, killing 68 people. The crash was caused by ice developing on the wing in a manner that the on-board deicing system could not remove.

No survivors from Pakistan plane crash, official says

From Reza Sayah and Shaan Khan CNN
April 20, 2012 -- Updated 1925 GMT (0325 HKT)

Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- A commercial airplane carrying at least 121 people crashed Friday in Rawalpindi just before it was to land at an airport in Islamabad, according to Pakistan's Civil Aviation Authority, which cited poor weather as a possible factor. No survivors have been found, officials said.



The Bhoja Air Boeing 737-200 was making its first evening flight from Karachi to Islamabad, where the weather was cloudy, officials said. Authorities initially reported that 131 people were on board, but authority spokesman Pervaz George later reduced that number.

The crash occurred near the Pakistani air force's Chaklala airbase, which is adjacent to the Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad.

Debris and body parts were scattered across the crash site as workers sifted through the wreckage in the heavily populated residential area. At least 110 bodies had been recovered from the scene, a government official said.

Russian passenger jet reported missing in Indonesia

A Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger plane with at least 44 people aboard has gone missing on a demonstration flight in Indonesia, reports say.

The plane disappeared from radar screens during a flight meant to last 30 minutes, a blogger with the Sukhoi delegation said.

Helicopters were dispatched to look for the jet, thought to have been flying near a mountain, Sergey Dolya said.

Emergency services confirmed a Sukhoi plane was missing.

Gagah Prakoso, spokesman for Indonesia's national search and rescue agency, said 46 people had been aboard the plane, which vanished from radar near Bogor, a city in West Java province.

"We are still looking for it and we are uncertain whether it crashed," he was quoted as saying by AFP news agency in the capital, Jakarta.

Dolya tweeted that there were 44 people aboard, eight of them Russians.

Terrible! Only just flew on one of these jets last week, great little aircraft to travel on.

I always cringe when I see there are new posts on this thread. Damn, this doesn't look good for those people on board.
