US military plane crashes in Kyrgyzstan

A US military refuelling plane from the country's Manas airbase in Kyrgyzstan crashed after taking off on Friday, according to the country's emergency situations ministry.

"According to my information, the plane broke up into three pieces. Information on the dead or wounded is being clarified. All the rescue services have gone to the scene," the ministry's press secretary Abdisharip Bekilov said.

The plane crashed near the mountain village of Chaldybar, around 200 kilometres from the capital Bishkek and close to the border with Kazakhstan, the emergency ministry spokesman said.

The press service at the US base, which serves troops in Afghanistan, told the Interfax news agency that it could not immediately confirm the information on the crash.

"We cannot confirm this information. It is being checked," a spokesman told the agency.

The plane took off at 2:30pm local time from Manas, according to Kylychbek Dosumbetov, the press secretary of the ministry of transport and communications, who was citing the country's civil aviation agency.

The emergency situations ministry said that preliminary information was that a KC-135 Stratotanker plane lost contact with the base as soon as it took off.

Witnesses told the Kyrgyz AKIPress news agency that they heard a boom and then an explosion and that the plane was continuing to burn on the ground.

Lion Air Copilot Handed Control to Pilot Just Before Bali Crash

By Harry Suhartono - May 16, 2013 3:35 PM GMT+0800.

Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee found that the copilot of a passenger jet operated by PT Lion Mentari Airlines handed control to the pilot just before it crashed off Bali’s main airport last month.

The 24-year-old copilot, with 1,200 hours of flying experience, relinquished control of the Boeing Co. 737-800 passenger jet when it was at an altitude of 150 feet, NTSC said in a 28 page preliminary report posted on the Ministry of Transport website. He told the senior pilot he couldn’t see the runway twice during the approach, the report says.

Lion Air should “review the policy and procedures regarding the risk associated with changeover of control at critical altitudes or critical time,” the report says. It doesn’t indicate the cause of the crash.

Indonesia’s investigation into at least its fourth aircraft accident in 16 months focuses attention on Lion Air, the country’s biggest private carrier, just as it plans an expansion. The Jakarta-based airline has placed orders of more than $45 billion with Airbus SAS and Boeing in the past two years and has 559 narrow-body planes pending, the world’s biggest backlog.

Lion Air is banned from the European Union, which blacklisted Indonesia’s airlines after a number of fatal accidents. The country’s flag carrier, PT Garuda Indonesia, and three other operators were allowed to return to Europe in 2009.

The report also recommends Lion Air “ensure pilots are properly trained during the initial and recurrent training program with regard to changeover of control at critical altitudes and or critical time.”

Runway Visibility

The copilot was second-in-command and “Pilot Flying” from the plane’s departure from Bandung, the provincial capital of West Java, until few moments prior to attempting to land at Ngurah Rai Airport.

He said twice during the approach that he couldn’t see the runway as the weather changed from clear, four minutes before the crash, to rain a few seconds prior to the incident, according to the report.

The pilot-in-command, 48 with 15,000 flying hours, took control of the aircraft and decided to abort the landing one second before the aircraft crashed into the sea, the report said. All 108 passenger and crew survived the April 13 crash.

The aircraft’s manufacturing date was Feb. 19 and its airworthiness certificate was issued March 21. It had almost 143 flying hours and had completed 104 cycles, according to the report. One cycle is defined as one takeoff and landing.

The preliminary report into the crash of LionAir's 737-800 at Bali's Ngurah Rai Int'l Airport was released.

Original report is linked to above; quoting from The Aviation Herald:
Quote:
[...]
The NTSB reported the captain (48, ATPL, 15,000 hours total, 7,000 hours on type) was pilot monitoring, the first officer (24, CPL, 1,200 hours total, 923 hours on type) was pilot flying.

The aircraft positioned for the VOR/DME approach to runway 09 with MDA at 465 feet AGL (editorial note: the chart by AIP Indonesia identifies MDA at 465 feet MSL and 454 feet AGL). While descending through 1600 feet the aircraft was cleared to land on runway 09 by Tower who reported winds from 120 degrees at 5 knots.

According to the flight data and cockpit voice recorders the aircraft was descending through 900 feet AGL when the first officer stated the runway was not in sight.

37 seconds later the aircraft descended through 550 feet AGL, the EGPWS called "MINIMUMS", the autopilot and autothrottle were disconnected and the descent was continued.

At about 150 feet AGL the captain took over control of the aircraft, the first officer acknowledged and stated he could not see the runway. 8 seconds later the EGPWS called out "TWENTY", the captain commanded "Go Around", one second later the aircraft contacted the water surface, the flight data recorder recorded the last position of the aircraft, likely the point of impact, at S8.7503 E115.1503, the aircraft was configured for landing with gear down and flaps at 40 degrees. The aircraft came to rest facing north about 300 meters southwest of the runway threshold.

Two aircraft were holding at holding point runway 09, one of the pilots called tower reporting the LionAir had just crashed into the sea. The tower controller could see the tail section of the aircraft in the water and pressed the crash button to alert emergency services.
[...]

MDA = Minimum Descent Altitude
AGL = Above Ground Level
MSL = Mean Sea Level
EGPWS = Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System

Indonesian airlines are pretty dodgy to say the least, there had been numerous crashes involving Indonesian carriers in the last decade or so and most of them are caused by pilot errors. Lets hope they improve air safety standards soon and get their pilots well trained.

Vnukovo Airport resumes work following Boeing 737 incident

136 people were evacuated from an UTair air carrier plane that arrived from Stavropol to Moscow earlier today, after part of the plane’s landing gear caught fire when the aircraft was landing at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport. According to the Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, no one was injured in the incident involving the UTair’s Boeing 737.

Moscow's Vnukovo Airport was temporarily closed on Saturday morning after a plane carrying about 136 people from the southern Russian city of Stavropol caught fire upon landing, a law enforcement source said. No one was reported injured in the incident.

“The plane’s left landing gear leg caught fire upon landing. Preliminary reports suggest the brake wheels were destroyed,” the source said, adding that the airport was closed at 7:48 Moscow time and would be reopened at about 10 a.m. after the aircraft – a Boeing-737 operated by the UTair airline – had been removed from the runway.

The Russian news channel Rossia 24 showed footage of the plane surrounded by rescue workers on the runway. One firefighter at the scene confirmed to the channel’s reporter that the incident had been “dangerous.”
The plane’s passengers included the Russian pop band Laskovy Mai, members of which were returning from touring together with their producer, Stavropol duma deputy Andrei Razin. Razin told RIA Novosti that the plane had been nearly full, but that it had been evacuated promptly.

The Emergencies Ministry said the plane had been carrying 136 passengers plus six crew members, while the Interior Ministry transport department put the figure at 136 including crew members.

By Simon Hradecky, created Sunday, Jun 2nd 2013 20:45Z, last updated Sunday, Jun 2nd 2013 20:51Z
A Cebu Pacific Airbus A320-200, registration RP-C3266 performing flight 5J-971 from Manila to Davao (Philippines) with 165 people on board, veered right of the runway just before 19:00L (11:00Z) while landing on Davao's runway 23 in heavy rain and came to a stop with the nose gear collapsed.

I believe the runway was visible but as they descend and at touch down there was a brief interruption of power in the whole area that was caused by the storm.

Today there was also an A320 accident in Rome.
Quote:
Accident: Wizz A320 at Rome on Jun 8th 2013, left main gear did not extend

A Wizz Air Airbus A320-200, registration HA-LWM performing flight W6-3141 from Bucharest Otopeni (Romania) to Rome Ciampino (Italy) with 165 passengers and 5 crew, was on approach to Ciampino's runway 15 when the crew went around from about 1500 feet due to the left hand main gear indicating unsafe at about 07:20L (05:20Z). The aircraft climbed back to 5000 feet and entered a hold to work the checklists, the crew decided to divert to Rome Fiumicino because of the longer runways available. About 35 minutes after aborting the approach the aircraft performed a low approach to Fiumicino's runway 34R to have the gear inspected from the ground, which confirmed the left main gear had not extended. The crew climbed to 2000 feet and positioned for another approach to runway 34R with the left main gear not in the extended position. The aircraft touched down safely at 08:09L (06:09Z), the crew kept the left wing up as long as suitable, then lowered the aircraft onto the left hand engine, the aircraft skidded to a stop on its right hand main gear, belly (tail area) and left hand wing with the nose gear up in the air, and was evacuated via slides. Three people received minor injuries in the evacuation.

When the plane became airborne the balance was so far off to the back of the plane that the plane stalled which can be seen in the video.
