RIP; we literaly killed off our own customers in Indonesia. What a monumental ****up. I feel very sorry for all the families of the dead.
Wow, you seem to be privy to some very confidential information, since you know for sure the plane (or the pilots, or the "airline services", but anyway "the Russian airliner industry") is at fault, something no one dared confirm before you

I know that someone made a ****up as usual; just as with the space probes; ballistic missile tests, and some other stuff. But this isn't equipment that can be lost to error and malfunction, and then built again. This is really something that you have to get right the first time around. And it seems we aren't capable of it.

You seem to be already blaming the aircraft. How about you wait until we know the cause of the crash first?

Aviation officials said the Bhoja Air plane, flight BHO-213, was flying from Karachi to Islamabad when it crashed in bad weather near Chaklala, Rawalpindi.

It was scheduled to leave Karachi at 17:00 local time (12:00 GMT) and due to arrive at 18:50 (13:50 GMT).

Emergency teams were reported to be on their way to the crash site, near Baria Town residential complex.

Reports suggest the plane was making its final approach to the airport when the crash happened.

Cargo plane hits bus in Ghana airport crash.
The plane had been coming in to land when it overshot the runway, officials say.

A cargo plane has crash landed in Ghana's capital Accra, hitting a bus full of passengers, officials say.

Ten passengers on board the bus were reported to have been killed while all four crew members survived.

Local TV showed the heavily damaged Boeing 727 Allied Air plane lying across a road close to Kotoka International Airport.

Ghana's airport operator said the plane, which had flown from Lagos, Nigeria, overshot the runway.

It said in a statement that the four crew members were receiving treatment at an airport clinic.

"The aircraft collided with a minivan, resulting in 10 confirmed fatalities," the statement added.

Police and troops cordoned off the scene following the incident just after 19:00 GMT on Saturday.

Ghana's Vice President John Dramani Mahama told reporters at the airport that a thorough investigation would be carried out.

"No early conclusions should be drawn. We should allow investigations to arrive at the actual cause. But I can assure Ghanaians that the situation is under control," he said.

Ghana Airport Company said flights were continuing as normal at the airport.

Kofi Kportufe, head of Ghana's national disaster management agency, praised the emergency services for their quick response, which he said had "averted further disaster".

"This is a sad day for Ghana," he said.

The BBC's West Africa correspondent John James says Ghana's air safety record has been good in recent years.

Accident: ANA B763 at Tokyo on June 20th 2012, Hard Landing


(WCARN.com/The Aviation Herald, June 20)


Quote:
An ANA All Nippon Airways Boeing 767-300, registration JA610A performing flight NH-956 from Beijing (China) to Tokyo Narita (Japan) with 193 people on board, touched down on Narita Airport's runway 16R, bounced off and touched down a second time nose gear first before the aircraft settled on the runway at about 13:30L (04:30Z), rolled out and taxied to the apron.


No injuries occurred, the aircraft received substantial damage.


A first post flight examination revealed the fuselage skin received numerous serious creases just ahead of the wing root all around the circumference.


Japan's TSB confirmed the aircraft received substantial damage and opened an investigation into the accident.

The video showed a small, seemingly harmless bump, but upon closer inspection, it almost split the fuselage in half!

Incident: Jin B738 at Taipei on Jun 20th 2012, Runaway Excursion while vacating the runway
(The Aviation Herald/WCARN.com, June 21)

Quote:
A Jin Air Boeing 737-800, flight LJ-13 from Jeju (South Korea) to Taipei (Taiwan) with 95 passengers and 6 crew, had landed safely on Taipei's runway 05L in Typhoon conditions at about 21:13L (13:13Z) and was expected to turn off onto high speed exit N8, however, actually attempted to turn off onto high speed exit N7 but skidded and came to a stop with the nose gear on soft ground forcing runway and taxiway N7 to be closed.

The aircraft was towed back onto paved surface and to the apron about 2 hours later, the runway and taxiway re-opened a short time later after inspections. The passengers disembarked normally at the gate through an airbridge after being kept on board throughout the recovery.

The incident aircraft was able to perform the return flight LJ-14 the following day after about 15 hours on the ground (scheduled ground time 13 hours) and reached Jeju with a delay of 2 hours.

I don't think most people realise how many aircraft actually crash. The more of this thread I read the more it makes me not want to fly.

updates on Sukhoi 100 crash in Indonesia:


Pilot of crashed Superjet-100 "was aware" of landscape
(RIA Novosti, June 28)

Quote:
The vice president of Russia’s Sukhoi corporation has dismissed suggestions that the pilot of a Superjet-100 plane that crashed into a mountain near Indonesia’s capital Jakarta in May was unaware of the landscape in the area.


“This was a demonstration flight, and the plane was to fly over many airports. It has crossed the equator, and it’s impossible to count all mountains along its route,” Igor Vinogradov said in an interview with Russian government daily Rossiiskaya Gazeta published on Thursday.


“As stipulated by [flight] regulations, the pilot had to make himself aware of the landscape in the areas where he was to fly, which has in fact been done,” he said, adding that an independent commission examined the crew’s readiness for the flight.


The Superjet-100 slammed into Mount Salak near Jakarta on May 9 when it was on a short demonstration flight for potential buyers. All 45 people on board were killed.


Vinogradov also dismissed suggestions that the plane could have problems with its air conditioning system, or that the crash could be a result of bad weather.


The Superjet’s onboard communications systems operated properly, as well as the collision avoidance system, he said, adding, however, that the pilot could have turned the latter off.

Incident: Air France A388 near Gothenburg on July 1st, 2012; door problems
(WCARN.com/The Aviation Herald)

Quote:
An Air France Airbus A380-800, registration F-HPJG performing flight AF-276 from Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) to Tokyo Narita (Japan), had just reached FL370 about 45nm eastnortheast of Gothenburg (Sweden) when the crew reported door problems and requested to descend to FL250.

The aircraft dumped fuel over the Baltic Sea and set course to return to Paris where the aircraft landed safely on runway 27L at about 19:49 p.m. L (17:49 p.m. Z) about 5 hours after departure.

Sweden's Civil Aviation Authority said the crew reported door problems and requested to dump fuel over the Baltic Sea.


The airline reported the aircraft returned to Paris for technical checks. The flight is estimated to depart again at 23:30 p.m. L (21:30 p.m. Z).


A replacement Airbus A380-800 registration F-HPJF departed runway 09R at 00:36 a.m. L (July 2nd, 22:36 p.m. Z July 1st) about 4:45 hours after landing and is estimated to reach Tokyo with a delay of 10 hours.

Incident: JAL MD90 at Sendai Airport on Aug. 15, 2010; engine shut down in flight
(WCARN.com/The Aviation Herald, July 1)

Quote:
Japan's Transportation Safety Board (JTSB) released their final report in Japanese concluding the probable cause of the serious incident was:

During takeoff the right hand engine's #4 bearing scavenge system ruptured, the first diffuser tube of the #4 bearing scavenge system released engine oil through the opening. The released engine oil came in contact with the engine's hot section and ignited.


The fracture of the #4 bearing scavenge tube was the result of fatigue produced by stress created by vibrations by the operation of the engine.


The captain (52, ATPL, 14,720 hours total, 1,405 hours on type) was pilot monitoring, the first officer (41, CPL, 6,574 hours total, 3,949 hours on type) was pilot flying. The aircraft accelerated for takeoff on runway 27 and rotated at about 160 KIAS. Shortly after becoming airborne Sendai tower reported white smoke coming from the right hand engine, however received no reply. Sendai departure transmitted the tower's observation of white smoke near the right hand engine about 40 seconds after the tower reported the observation.



The crew engaged the autopilot about 20 seconds after that transmission. 118 seconds after becoming airborne while climbing through 5,500 feet the crew received a right hand engine fire indication, throttled both engine back and declared emergency. The aircraft stopped the climb at 6,150 feet and began to gradually descend.



90 seconds after the fire alert the crew shut the right hand engine down and discharged the first fire bottle, 80 seconds later discharged the second fire bottle after which the fire indication ceased. The aircraft joined a left downwind and landed safely on Sendai's runway 27 about 15 minutes after becoming airborne.


The captain reported in post flight interviews that engine start and taxi towards the runway was normal with no anomaly observed. After steering the aircraft onto runway 27 the first officer assumed control and began takeoff, which felt smooth without any anomaly.



After rotation and positive rate of the climb the captain selected the gear up and contacted departure and was told "radar contact". When the aircraft climbed through about 3,000 feet departure informed the crew about white smoke from the right hand engine during takeoff.



The captain checked the engine instruments and noticed an amber warning light indicating low oil pressure, the master caution had not been activated. The captain decided to activate the procedures for the low oil pressure indication and was about to order level off at 6,000 feet when the right hand engine's fire warning activated.



The captain sensed a slight yaw to the right and suspecting the right hand engine had been damaged assumed control of the aircraft with the first officer assuming the role of pilot monitoring, the fire memory checklists were actioned shutting the engine down and discharging the first fire bottle and starting the timer.



After 80 seconds, when the fire indication had not ceased, the second fire bottle was discharged which resulting in the fire warning extinguishing. The aircraft subsequently joined a downwind to position for landing on runway 27 and stopped on the runway to have emergency services check the aircraft. Emergency services reported no smoke, the crew therefore taxied the aircraft to the apron.


The tower control said in post incident interviews that he had cleared the aircraft for takeoff from runway 27 and contact departure upon airborne. When the aircraft began to accelerate there was nothing unusual, by the time the aircraft began to rotate white smoke became visible from the right hand engine.



He reported his observation, the crew however had already switched to departure. He then forwarded his observation to the departure controller who relayed the information, the aircraft subsequently stopped the climb at 6,000 feet. The departure controller indicated that the crew had declared emergency due to an engine fire.


A post flight inspection of the aircraft revealed no damage to the aircraft, the right hand engine however showed decolouration to the cowling, the pressure relief door had opened with traces of heat loss extending backwards of the door. The diffuser case was broken and traces of oil leakage were found.
