Dana Air Crash: Reps give airline ultimatum to pay compensation to victims' families
(Nigerian Tribune/WCARN.com, June 29)


Quote:
The House of Representatives, on Thursday, gave the management of Dana Airline till July 3 to pay compensation to the families of the passengers of its ill-fated aircraft that crashlanded in Lagos on June 3, killing about 153.


The House also directed other airlines with history of plane crashes in the country to also pay the 30 percent required compensation, or in full where investigations have been concluded.


The House directive was sequel to a motion of urgent national importance, moved by Honourable Yakub Abiodun, asking the House to look into the delay of Dana airline management to pay compensation to the victims' families in-line with international best practices.


Leading debate on the motion, Honourable Abiodun said that the motion was predicated on the Nigerian Civil Aviation Act which, according to him, "stipulates that 30 percent of due compensation be paid to families of airborne crash victims within 30 days, while investigation into cause of such accidents lasts."


According to him, "the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air, simply known as the Montreal Convention, adopted by a diplomatic meeting of member states of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) in 1999, stipulated a Special Drawing Rights (SDR) for victims of air crash, which current value is put at about US$171,000 per passenger.


He equally maintained that "since section 48 of the Civil Aviation Act stipulates that an advance payment of 30 percent of the SDR be made within 30 days, it is important that the House urges the management of Dana Air to comply immediately".


The lawmakers, however, took turns to support the motion, noting that though the compensation would not bring back the dead but it would help the families of the dead to have something to fall back on.


When the Speaker, Honourable Aminu Tambuwal, who presided over the session put the motion to vote it was unanimously supported by members.

Flight AF 447 Final Accident Report
http://www.bea.aero/en/enquetes/flig...ght.af.447.php

Sequence of events leading to the accident

1. The temporary inconsistency between the measured
speeds, following the obstruction of the Pitot probes by ice
crystals

2. control inputs destabilizing the flight path

3. The lack of any link, by the crew, between the loss of
displayed airspeed information and the appropriate
procedure

4. The late identification of the deviation from the flight path by
the PNF and insufficient correction applied by the PF

5. The crew not identifying the approach to stall, their lack of
immediate response and the exit from the flight envelope

6. The crew’s failure to diagnose the stall situation and
consequently a lack of inputs that would have made
recovery possible

The primary cause is bad pitot tubes...however, the situation could have been controllable had the crew realized whats happening and took proper action in time.

Causes/Recommendations
  • Pitot Failure (Yes)
  • Visual clues in messages (potential for improvement)
  • Pilot error (yes)

So basically bad pitot tubes + possibly confusing set of messages + pilot error

Croc breaks loose on Australian flight

Quote:
An Australian baggage handler had a nasty surprise when he opened the cargo door of a Qantas passenger flight to find a crocodile roaming loose in the hold, the airline said Monday.

The reptile, reported to be a relatively small specimen, escaped its transport container during a flight from Brisbane to Melbourne last week, a Qantas spokesman told AFP.

Russia Admits Guilt of SSJ Crew for Indonesia Crash

On Wednesday, representatives of the Russian Trade and Industry Ministry in Indonesia signed a protocol accepting the findings of local experts, who concluded that the crash of the Russian SSJ-100 on May 9 was caused by human error: the pilots did not react to the terrain and traffic collision avoidance system’s warning.

....

On May 9, a Sukhoi SuperJet-100 piloted by Alexander Yablontsev was making a demonstration flight in Indonesia, which was planning to purchase the aircraft. Trying to show off the plane at its best, the pilot took it to a dangerously low altitude and circled instead of turning back as planned. The experienced pilot flew the plane very well but made a fatal mistake at the end of the maneuver: he turned south into the mountains instead of north toward the airport. He further ignored the TWAS warning, believing that he was flying over a plain. As a result, the SSJ crashed into a mountainside at Mount Salak, killing all 45 people on board, including the crew.

This reconstruction, which clearly points to mistakes made by the SSJ-100 crew, was approved by the experts of both countries in summer. The point on which they could not agree was not the reason for the crash, but the so-called contributing factors. The Russian delegation has forwarded its dissenting opinion to the NTSC and asked its Indonesian colleagues to evaluate the performance of the flight controller. The Russian experts believe that permission for the SSJ-100 to descend to the dangerous altitude of 6,000 feet was incorrectly given, and that the flight controller was too busy monitoring other flights to realize in time that the SSJ was flying toward the mountains.

The Russian experts, who did not officially take part in the investigation, admit that in accordance with the international procedure the NTSC can include their reasons in their report or leave them out, without explaining their reasoning. This is in fact the main intrigue of the investigation, which is not officially over yet. The NTSC report is to be coordinated with the French producers of engines and the U.S. manufacturers of navigation systems for the SSJ-100. Experts say this could take several weeks, and so the conclusions will not be made public before October.

Nepal plane crash kills all 19 on board: police

KATHMANDU: Seven Britons and five Chinese are among the dead in a plane crash Friday on the outskirts of the Nepalese capital Kathmandu which killed all 19 on board, according to a revised toll by police.

"The plane crash in the capital has caused death of 12 foreigners, including seven British and five Chinese tourists. The remaining seven, including three crew members, are Nepalese, said Nepal Police spokesman Binod Singh.

A small passenger plane carrying 19 people crashed on the outskirts of the Nepalese capital Friday, killing everyone on board.

The Sita Air Dornier craft had just taken off from Kathmandu airport and was headed to the small town of Lukla, a gateway to Mount Everest, when it plunged into the banks of a river near the city.

"All 19 passengers of the Sita Air plane have died. The accident site is less than one kilometre (half a mile) from the airport," said Nepal Police spokesman Binod Singh.

"The pilots seem to have tried to land it safely on the banks of the river but unfortunately the plane caught fire."

RIP. Amazing shots caught by the dashcam.

As can be seen in the above picture, the aircraft was RA-64047, pictured here on its departure from Pardubice Airport, Czech Republic.

The people in those cars were extremely lucky, some of those parts flying onto the road could easily have completely destroyed a car with fatal result.

And luckily there were also no passengers aboard, but still RIP to the crew members that didn't survive this crash.

Last night Delta Airlines DL201 from Johannesburg to Atlanta had to divert to Ascension Island (RAF base) due to loss of engine. Strange that no word has been mentioned anywhere about this yet, considering it being one of the longest flights in the world, the 777LR twin over that much water and that operationally challenging to accommodate the diverted pax?
Anybody know more?
