1 dead after shots fired at Pakistani plane

Quote:
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Authorities in Pakistan were looking for a gunman who opened fire at a plane Tuesday evening just as it was landing in the volatile northwest, killing one person and wounding two others, officials said, casting fresh doubts about security at the country's airports.

The violence in Peshawar comes just two weeks after gunmen laid siege to the country's busiest airport in Karachi in an attack that shocked Pakistanis and the international community and helped trigger a long-awaited military offensive against militants in the northwest.

A female passenger on board the plane died on the way to the hospital, said Mashood Tajwar, a spokesman for the national carrier, Pakistan International Airlines. He said 178 passengers and an undetermined number of crew were on board.

Two other people on the flight were also wounded, said Dost Muhammad Khan, the station house officer in charge of the area. The plane was coming from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, said Khan and the passengers were believed to mostly be Pakistanis who go to Saudi Arabia to work. He said the woman had been visiting her husband and had also gone on a religious pilgrimage.

"When the plane was about the land, we heard shots and suddenly there was chaos in the flight," said an unidentified male passenger, speaking to Dunya TV outside the airport.

Khan initially said five bullets hit the plane as it was coming in to the airport, but the Senior Superintendent of Police, Najeeb ur Rehman Bhagvi, said when he and other authorities later inspected the plane they found at least ten bullet holes.

The plane was about 300 feet (90 meters) off the ground when someone opened fire on it from below with a sub-machine gun or an AK-47, Bhagvi said.

Authorities were scouring the area around the airport to find whoever is responsible, Khan said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but suspicion will likely fall on militants that the government has been fighting in the country's northwest.

The Pakistani Taliban has been attempting for years to overthrow the government and establish their hardline form of Islam across the country.

Peshawar is located on the edge of the tribal regions where militant groups such as al-Qaida and the Taliban are based and over the years the city has become a frequent target of bombings and shootings.

The Peshawar airport has a military and civilian side. In Dec. 2012 suicide bombers armed with rockets attacked the military side of the airport, killing four civilians.

After the Karachi airport assault, the military announced a major operation on June 15 against militants who have been using the country's North Waziristan tribal area as a safe haven from which to launch attacks against targets in Pakistan as well as Afghanistan.

The U.S. had been pushing the government and military to clear the area of militants since groups such as the Haqqani network and others used North Waziristan as a base strike at NATO and Afghan troops.

Hundreds of thousands of refugees have poured out of North Waziristan since the operation started, although so far it has mostly consisted of airstrikes against militant hideouts.

People across Pakistan have been bracing for reprisal attacks ever since the operation got under way.

The operation came after the Pakistani Taliban and an Uzbek militant group attacked the airport in the southern port city of Karachi. During the audacious attack, gunmen battled with airport security and other law enforcement authorities for roughly five hours.

The mayhem shocked the country and raised questions about the security of other airports around Pakistan.

Search for missing Malaysian plane shifts south
Officials say hunt for missing Malaysian jet will shift south of initial seabed search zone. Officials say new search area for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 based on fresh analysis of existing satellite data.Australian official says confident missing Malaysian plane was flying on autopilot, officials have not attempted to fix a moment when the Malaysian plane was put on autopilot

Quote:


SYDNEY (AP) — Investigators looking into the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines plane are confident it was on autopilot when it crashed in a remote stretch of the Indian Ocean, Australian officials said Thursday as they announced the latest shift in the search for the jet.

After analyzing data exchanged between the plane and a satellite, officials believe Flight 370 was on autopilot the entire time it was flying across a vast expanse of the southern Indian Ocean, based on the straight path it took, Australian Transport Safety Bureau chief commissioner Martin Dolan said.

"Certainly for its path across the Indian Ocean, we are confident that the aircraft was operating on autopilot until it ran out of fuel," Dolan told reporters in Canberra, the nation's capital.

Asked whether the autopilot would have to be manually switched on, or whether it could have been activated automatically under a default setting, Dolan replied, "The basic assumption would be that if the autopilot is operational it's because it's been switched on."

But exactly why the autopilot would have been set on a flight path so far off course from the jet's destination of Beijing, and exactly when it was switched on remains unknown.

"We couldn't accurately, nor have we attempted to, fix the moment when it was put on autopilot," Transport Minister Warren Truss said. "It will be a matter for the Malaysian-based investigation to look at precisely when it may have been put on autopilot."

The latest nugget of information from the investigation into Flight 370 came as officials announced yet another change in the search area for the plane that vanished on March 8 after taking off from Kuala Lumpur with 239 passengers and crew on board.

The new search area is several hundred kilometers (miles) southwest of the most recent suspected crash site, about 1,800 kilometers (1,100 miles) off Australia's west coast, Dolan said. Powerful sonar equipment will scour the seabed for wreckage in the new search zone, which officials calculated by reanalyzing the existing satellite data.

The shift was expected, with Dolan saying last week the new zone would be south of an area where a remote-controlled underwater drone spent weeks fruitlessly combing 850 square kilometers (330 square miles) of seabed. That search area was determined by a series of underwater sounds initially thought to have come from the plane's black boxes. But those signals are now widely believed to have come from some other source.

The new 60,000-square kilometer (23,000-square mile) search area falls within a vast expanse of ocean that air crews have already scoured for floating debris, to no avail. Officials have since called off the air search, since any debris would likely have sunk long ago.

The hunt is now focused underwater. Beginning in August, private contractors will use powerful side-scan sonar equipment capable of probing ocean depths of 7 kilometers (4.3 miles) to comb the ocean floor in the new search zone. The job is expected to take 12 months to complete.

Two survey ships are mapping uncharted expanses of seabed in the search zone before the sonar scanning starts. Dolan said it was possible the mapping equipment could detect wreckage that may be lying on the seafloor, but that it was highly unlikely.

The search area has changed multiple times in the months since Flight 370 vanished, as officials struggled to make sense of the limited data the flight left in its wake after it dropped off radar. The plane's communications systems were disabled, giving investigators little to work with beyond data gleaned from hourly transmissions, or "handshakes," between the plane and a satellite.

University of New South Wales aviation expert Peter Marosszéky said if the autopilot was still working when the plane crashed, it suggests the aircraft's communications systems were switched off rather than disabled by a major malfunction or catastrophe.

"It would appear very unlikely that power was removed from most of the essential systems, because you can't connect your autopilot if your flight management computers aren't operating," he said. "It would appear that it lost all communication and identification with air traffic control because those systems were turned off. You can't connect the autopilot if you've got systems that have been put out of action."

Truss said he was optimistic that the latest search zone is the most likely crash site. But he warned that finding the plane remains a huge task.

"The search will still be painstaking," he said. "Of course, we could be fortunate and find it in the first hour or the first day — but it could take another 12 months."

Qantas A380 returns to LAX as water leak floods fliers



[IMG]http://i60.************/r22ov5.jpg[/IMG]

A Qantas Airways superjumbo jet returned to Los Angeles International Airport about an hour after takeoff when a burst water pipe sent water down the aisles of the Airbus A380, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

A media outlet identified as 7News Yahoo!7 posted a picture of the jet's flooded aisles on Twitter. The flight took off from LAX around 12:14 a.m. ET Wednesday, turning around about an hour later. The jet landed at the airport about 2:40 a.m., according to FlightAware.com.

Qantas confirmed the incident on Qantas Flight 94, saying the Los Angeles-to-Melbourne flight "returned to L.A. about an hour after takeoff as there was a water leak on board the aircraft."

The Associated Press describes the scene, saying "water ran down stairs in the cabin and dripped onto passengers seated in the lower deck. Some people were moved to drier areas of the plane."

"All of a sudden, people started jumping up and yelling because all this water was coming basically in the middle of the aircraft," Ken Cross, a passenger on the plane, tells ABC 7 of Los Angeles. "They couldn't feed us. There was no entertainment, so you couldn't keep going for 15 hours like that."

In its statement, Qantas says "crew on board did everything they could to help customers, including moving them to unaffected areas and providing spare blankets so they could stay dry."

Qantas adds:

"We're also providing customers with hotel accommodation while the issue is being fixed by our engineers in Los Angeles. We apologise to customers for the inconvenience. There were no safety of flight concerns with the water leak, however the Captain decided to return to LA in the interests of passenger comfort. We are liaising with Airbus to understand what caused this fault."

Train derails, spilling aircraft components into Clark Fork

MISSOULA, Mont. -

Train cars and airplane parts in the Clark Fork River just west of Alberton were an unwelcome surprise for some Clark Fork floaters. Crews worked Friday near the Fish Creek exit, roughly 45 miles west of Missoula to clean up the mess after a train derailed Thursday.


NBC Montana reached out to Montana Rail Link officials who say the train came from Kansas City and was heading to Renton, Washington.

I always afraid to fly. I imagine that the plane crash with me in ,and then I have never been found.
I'm very happy when I come back from the airport.
I love travel. The only reason why I don't do this as much as I wanted is I am afraid of traveling by plane. Hope, that such disasters will not occur in the future.
