Wasn't it Air Asia who, post MH-370, in their in flight magazine printed something about their planes not going missing?

Anyway, an extremely rough year for civil aviation. Let's hope for a quick and succesful search mission so we might learn something from it.

Aviation's deadly 2014, yet safety record improving
Excerpt

LONDON, Dec 29 (Reuters) - The loss of Indonesia AirAsia Flight QZ8501 would cap one of the deadliest years in civil aviation for almost a decade - yet experts say the industry's underlying safety record is improving.

The statistics underscore a year of tragic contrasts dominated by two Malaysian catastrophes and a handful of weather-related incidents, yet a record-low number of crashes.

Even before an Indonesia AirAsia Airbus 320 jet with 162 people on board went missing in bad weather on Sunday between the Indonesian city of Surabaya and Singapore, some 762 people had lost their lives in seven fatal accidents this year.

If the Indonesian-registered aircraft is confirmed to have crashed killing all on board, the accident would make 2014 the worst year for loss of life in civil aviation since 2005, when 1,014 people were killed in passenger accidents, according to the Netherlands-based Aviation Safety Network.

But the number of fatal accidents in 2014 would stand at only eight, if Flight QZ8501 is included, compared with 24 in 2005. This would be the lowest in memory, reflecting the peculiar nature of this year's disasters.

"Remarkably, 2014 has the lowest number for passenger flight accidents in modern aviation history," said Harro Ranter, founder and director of Aviation Safety Network, which runs an independent database.

**************************

More than 160 people lost their lives in two bad weather incidents in July: 48 when a Transasia Airways aircraft tried to land in Taiwan and 116 when a Swiftair jet operated by Air Algerie crashed in northern Mali.

Airlines and manufacturers contend that aviation is the safest form of transport amid improvements in aircraft design, training and infrastructure.

The International Air Transport Association, which represents about 250 airlines, said earlier this month that 2014 was among the safest when measured against the volume of traffic.

In 2009, according to IATA, there was one "hull loss" for every 1.5 million flights, which translates to 0.67 for every 1 million flights.

As of 30 September, the 2014 jet hull loss rate stood at 0.22 per million flights. The average rate for IATA members, which does not include most low-cost airlines, was 0.37 over the last five years, according to the Geneva-based organization. Its figures only include Western-built jets.

However, safety authorities say accidents involving a loss of control, such as those which sometimes occur during severe weather, are nearly always catastrophic even though they are also rare.

I just woke up, turned on CNN and realized that the search has still not found the aircraft yet.

A chilling thought just went through my head, what if they never find this aircraft either.

Just reported on Sky News that its going to try a 'non standard' attempt at landing.

This is apparently a pic of the plane and the undercarriage problem which was posted here.



Another image.



Edit - Its landed safely.

AirAsia flight overshoots runway in Philippines, no reported injuries
Published on Dec 30, 2014 7:08 PM

SINGAPORE - An AirAsia plane overshot the runway at Kalibo International Airport near Boracay, a popular Philippine tourist destination, on Tuesday evening.

Several posts on social media showed emergency slides being deployed from the Airbus A320 plane, which appeared to have come to a halt on a grassy field.

Passenger Jet Damazo-Santos tweeted at 5.50pm: "Just landed in Kalibo on an AirAsia flight that overshot runway"

The Filippino journalist posted several photos on Twitter and also said that no one seemed to be hurt. Flight Z2272, which originated from Manila, was operated by AirAsia Zest, an affiliate of Philippines AirAsia.

"Weather was bad because of #senangph Plane came to a very abrupt stop," she said, referring to tropical storm Seniang.

"Engine was shut immediately, we were told to leave bags, deplane asap. Firetruck was waiting. Seems handled well," she added.

The flight was scheduled to depart at around 4.15pm on Tuesday, but was was delayed by almost two hours due to bad weather.

Singaporean Mr Willie Tan, who was on the flight, posted photos of the evacuation on his Facebook account. He captioned the images: "Emergency landing OMG Airasia!!!".

Mr Tan also posted a video in which a man can be heard saying: "The air stewardess very courageous leh, still standing there."

The latest incident comes amid news that debris and bodies from Indonesia AirAsia flight QZ8501 were spotted and are being recovered.

Stricken AirAsia plane soared 'as fast as a fighter jet' and then dropped almost vertically into Java Sea as if being thrust down by a giant hand, crash experts revealed today
Plane behaved in ways 'bordering on edge of logic' before disappearing
Craft soared up at 'unprecedented' rate before falling almost vertically
Weather was so extreme pilots could not have saved 162 people on board
First body to be pulled from ocean identified and handed back to family
More bodies found by search teams today bringing total recovered to nine
But workers warn it could be a week before plane's black box is found

I'm not an aviation expert, but it seems like QZ8501 flew right into some sort of giant microburst. Microbursts forced other planes to go down in the past, but that always happened while those airplanes were landing and were most vulnerable for these kind of weather conditions due to low airspeed and low altitude. The Air Asia plane was most likely flying at cruising speed (about 880 km/h) and cruising altitude (around 36.000 feet, or 11 kilometers) when it disappeared, and as far as I know, a microburst has never forced a plane to crash during mid-flight before.

Being a Malaysian company one again and the erratic behaviour reported, one cannot help but wonder if Malaysia is being taught a lesson for something by the powers that be, it might have been remotely controlled, bad weather being a good cover up so there is no suspicion.
