Another MH story...


Flight MH135 pulls emergency landing for Aussie in labour
The Malaysian Inside | 24 October 2014
http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/m...ssie-in-labour

Malaysia Airlines today did the country proud when flight MH135 made an emergency landing in Bali after an Australian passenger went into labour.

The Australian Associated Press (AAP) reported Bali's Ngurah Rai airport managers Angkasa Pura and Herry A. Y. Sikado as saying that flight MH135 from Kuala Lumpur to Brisbane requested a priority landing today as the pregnant woman was "about to give birth".

Four dead in Wichita as plane hits Kansas airport building

Quote:
At least four people were killed and five injured when a small plane crashed into an airport building in Wichita, Kansas, officials have said.

Firefighters responded at about 09:50 local time (14:50 GMT) to a "horrific fire" after a plane crash-landed, Fire Chief Ron Blackwell said.

Four people remain missing, but a search was put on hold after a portion of the building collapsed.

The Beechcraft aircraft lost power shortly after take-off.

The aircraft hit the FlightSafety International building. Other flights have not been affected.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) spokesman Tony Molinaro told local media the plane crashed while attempting to return to the runway.

AF006 Paris-New York

Air France Flight From Paris to New York Turns Back After Severe Turbulence
A transatlantic flight to New York was forced to turn back after encountering severe turbulence that was strong enough to injure three crew members, the airline said.

The Air France Airbus A380 had just left Paris when it "encountered strong turbulence at the beginning of the cruise phase over northern England, Air France. No passengers were injured, the airline added.

Scientists claim that the turbulence over the Atlantic will increase in the future due to the climate change.

Question: what would be the procedure in a case of an emergency over the midatlantic ?

Let's say both engines malfunction in the location above, would it be possible to glide to Greenland and land there ?

Not an export, but there are small islands that are capable of accepting large jets. A320 can't make it across Atlantic, they make a stop at those islands.

But what happends at this location if a double engine failure occurs ?
for how long can an Airbus A330 glide ?

Would it turn around back towards Ireland or continue to Greenland ?

In case of fire or sick crew, what airport would be closest land at ?

Maybe the Azores would be suitable to land at for the southern european flight paths, but what about the northern european flight paths ? I dont see any islands in the northern part of the Atlantic, except Iceland and Greenland.

MH17: Ukraine to blame for obstructing inquiry, Putin tells Najib


Najib held talks with Putin in Beijing on Monday. - Bernama


BEIJING: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday accused Ukraine's government of interfering with the investigation into the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 jet, in talks with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific conference here.

Independent investigators have had little access to the wreckage of flight MH17 in territory in eastern Ukraine in the hands of pro-Russian separatists fighting Ukrainian government forces.

Najib called for greater access to the wreckage but Putin disputed the suggestion that pro-Russia separatists were hindering the investigation.

"The reference that the territory of the crash site is controlled by so called pro-Russian separatists is totally ungrounded," Putin said.

With double engine failure you're pretty much screwed.. Well there has been a double engine failure (fuel starvation) with a A330, glided 120km with no engines which is pretty much the most you can get out of a modern airliner (link to wikipedia) but fuel starvation is quite rare so it's unlikely to happen over mid-atlantic

What is rare can happen, eventhough it's unlikely to happen. Flying over land must be safer. A flight to China or South Africa must be less risky than a flight to the Americas, because there are no nearby airports in the Atlantic Ocean.

Likely transatlantic emergency landing points are Reykjavik and Gander I believe. On 9/11 a lot of planes landed in Gander, which has the ability to take in widebodies.

Capt. Piché and FO de Jager were kind enough to run this experiment for us, but in a different location. Quite likely that this would end up tragically in a different area of the Atlantic, as Keflavík or Gander aren't always an option, but as others have pointed out, such failures are almost unheard of in modern commercial aviation.

Looks like this was not reported here... from 31 October 2014:

Jet carrying 248 passengers skids off runway and ploughs into ground bringing Thai airport to a standstill

I just hope Khon Kaen Airport has resumed normal operations while at the same time, the investigation will be done soon.

Quote:
A Thai airport has been brought to a temporary standstill after one of its jets skidded off the runway as it prepared to take off.

The Thai Airways plane was scheduled to depart the country’s Khon Kaen airport for Bangkok at 8pm on Monday.

The crew were attempting a U-turn on the runway when the aircraft left the tarmac, causing its nose wheel to plough into the soft ground.

You are more likely to die travelling in an airplane than going by car, the mistake is calculating the risk by km and not per ride.


Why ? For example: according to statistics, a typical flight from Los Angeles to New York will carry a larger risk factor than a typical car ride from home to office. Car travel from Los Angeles to New York would not be a common mode of transport, so why messure the risk of flying by kilometers ?

Can you try and calculate the death per time spend in car/airplane then?

Russian Plane Carrying Arms Seized In Kano

Quote:
Security operatives at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano (MAKIA), on Saturday seized a Russian Plane with arms and ammunitions.

The affected plane was also said to be carrying two helicopters and bullet proof vests.

A source at the airport told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday that the plane which was bound for D’jamena, Chad Republic, landed at the airport around 2:15am on Saturday.

According to the source, the crew members are still being detained by the security agents following the discovery of the arms including many AK47 rifles and other items.

‘’Security has since been beefed up at the airport in order to ensure proper investigation,’’ the source said.

When contacted, the General Manager of Communication,Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr Yakubu Datti, confirmed the seizure of the plane.

He said the pilot sought for permission to land at the airport following a technical problem with the aircraft.

‘’The plane had a technical problem and the pilot sought for permission to land at the airport,’’ he said.

Datti who declined to describe the contents in the aircraft, however, said that security agencies had since commenced investigation on the issue. (NAN)

.EMERGENCY IN THE SCANDINAVIAN SKY.


Flight SK 1491 from Stockholm, Sweden to Tromsø, northern Norway took off from Arlanda Airport at 10:55 today. About 20 minutes later, the plane, a Boeing 737-600, had to turn back. One of the pilots became ill and requested to return due to security reasons.
