Just saw this on the news a while ago and this is about further investigations regarding the Asiana Airlines incident at SFO a few months ago:

U.S. hearing to probe autopilot reliance in Asiana crash

by Reuters
December 11, 2013

Washington - U.S. safety investigators are looking closely at whether an over-reliance on autopilot systems in modern aircraft has degraded human flying skills, increasing the risk of accidents.........

For the rest of the article, see the following link:

What do you guys think? Any thoughts, opinions, viewpoints and analysis?

A British Airways 747 has struck a building at Johannesburg airport while taxiing. The right wing ended up slicing through the top floor of the brick built structure. Luckily all passengers where fine but it must of come as a bit of a shock.

Just guessing about the crash site in Johannesburg airport.
If my guess is right, I wonder why the pilots went wrong through that small taxiway.

You got the collision site correct (red circle) but are mistaken about the plane's route (blue arrow). The plane had just pushed out of the terminal, so it entered the photo area from the right edge of the photo, and simply missed the turn when the main taxiway kinked to the left.

Saw something really interesting that happened in Arusha, Tanzania recently (December 19th, 2013) and I wanted to share...

An Ethiopian B767-300ER (ET-815) made an emergency landing in Arusha (ARK) and overshot the short runway which isn't designed to handle widebody aircraft. This airport is a small aircraft airport that caters to tourists & local business people. Gladly, no one was injured but the passengers had to sit for a cool 5 hours because there was no ladder available to cater for the jet. Eventually they had to deploy emergency chutes to get passengers off.










ARK has a 1,620 meter long runway but a B767 requires a minimum of 1828 meters to safely take off. After stripping off a few "non-essential" parts with minimum fuel, the gamble was on!

Here's a video of the B767 making a run for it to get out of ARK;



The taxiway & runway was lined with pilots of planes queued up for take-off! I guess this was a lifetime event! I got goosebumps watching that bird take to the skies.

It's an old plane, you need at least a crew of 5 people to operate the plane. In this case there were 6 crew members and 3 passengers.

With the plane being operated for the "Irkutsk Aviation Plant" and was flying between factories it's not that strange that it had several passengers on board. They were not making some extra cash, but saving on spending money on regular airline or trains tickets for these employees to travel between the 2 facilities.

From aviation-safety.net:

A Canadair Challenger 601 corporate jet, reported by Flightaware to be N115WF, sustained substantial damage in a landing accident at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport, CO (ASE) on Sunday 5th January. The airplane came to rest upside down on runway 15. The right hand wing had broken off and a fire erupted. Three people were on board the airplane, the Pitkin County Sheriff's Office said. One person died in the crash, one person has major to severe injuries and one person has minor to moderate injuries.

Pilots Grounded After Landing at Wrong Airport

Quote:
The pilots of a Southwest Airlines flight that mistakenly landed at the wrong Missouri airport were grounded Monday, less than a day after they touched down at a small airfield that gave them only half as much room as normal to stop the jet.

Southwest Flight 4013 was traveling Sunday evening from Chicago's Midway Airport to Branson Airport but instead landed at tiny Taney County Airport seven miles away.

No one was hurt, but after the 124 passengers were let off the plane, they noticed the airliner had come dangerously close to the end of the runway, where it could have tumbled down a steep embankment if it had left the pavement.
