well, here we go: lets start counting the crashes of 2015 but of course hope at the same time that it won't be as many as last year!

Taiwan pilots 'lost thrust in one engine, restarted the other'
7 February 2015
Excerpt

TAIPEI (Reuters) - The crew of a twin-propellor TransAsia plane which crashed into a river in Taipei killing 35 people had lost power in one engine but shut down and restarted the other, investigators said on Friday.

The reason for the pilots' action was unclear but a combined lack of thrust caused the almost-new turboprop ATR 72-600 to stall soon after take-off, Aviation Safety Council officials said after a preliminary study of 'black box' flight recorders.

The plane, which can fly on one engine, was carrying 58 passengers and crew when it lurched nose-up between buildings, clipped an overpass and a taxi with one of its wings and then crashed upside down into a shallow river on Wednesday. Fifteen people survived.

The cockpit data and voice recorders showed that the plane warned five times of stalling before the crash in the center of Taipei, according to findings by the council.

The right engine entered a state called "auto-feather", in which it reduced thrust to the propeller, Thomas Wang, managing director of the council, told a news briefing.

The flight crew then reduced power to the left engine, turned it off and attempted to restart it, but it did not gain enough thrust.

There was no word on what may have been going through the pilots' minds or what the instruments may have been telling them, but evidence presented so far will raise questions over whether they accidentally cut the wrong engine.

"That happens, but it is rare," said Paul Hayes, safety director at British aviation consultancy Ascend Flightglobal.

In 1989, a British Midlands Boeing 737 jet crashed in central England after the crew shut down the wrong engine. Investigators said unfamiliar vibration and noise contributed to the so-called Kegworth disaster, in which 47 passengers died.

Taiwan said the TransAsia problems began shortly after the turboprop aircraft left Taipei's downtown Songshan airport.

"The first engine experienced a problem 37 seconds after take-off at 1,200 feet," Wang said.

He said the pilot had announced a "flameout", which can occur when fuel supply to an engine is interrupted or when there is faulty combustion, but that there had not been one according to the data.

Let's not assume whose at fault until the investigation is officially complete. Things tend change throughout the crash investigation. From the air disasters I have studied, there is usually a combination of reasons for a crash.

If you read further into the article, it states:

Many Pilots Fail Safety Test at TransAsia
12 February 2015
The New York Times Excerpt

HONG KONG -- Ten of 49 TransAsia Airways pilots failed emergency proficiency tests ordered by the Civil Aeronautics Administration of Taiwan after a deadly plane crash in the capital, Taipei, last week, the aviation regulator announced on Wednesday.

The results were another black mark for TransAsia, Taiwan's third-largest airline, which has had two deadly crashes in less than seven months. The aviation authority said it was planning to increase the testing of pilots and aircraft at the airline in an effort to improve safety.

The pilots of the airline's ATR turboprops who failed the test will be suspended pending further training in handling emergency situations, the aviation authority said. It said an additional 19 pilots still had not taken the test and could not fly until they had passed.

After the crash last week, TransAsia canceled dozens of flights while its ATR fleet was inspected and its pilots tested. The test failures will result in continued restrictions on its flights as the Chinese New Year approaches, and the aviation authority said it would ask other domestic airlines to add flights.

Smoke filled an A321 a few hours ago at Denver International Airport.

(since I cannot link) From Jan's Aviation:
"A US Airways flight was forced to evacuate after landing on Wednesday after smoke filled the cabin."

The moment I read NY La Guardia I knew I could count on this guy to get the ATC recordings online.

The important thing now is they need to find the black boxes as soon as possible for examination.

The reason is simple: did the "black boxes" continue to record data right up to the time of the crash, or did they suddenly stop recording just before the steep descent occurred? If it's the latter, there's this frightening possibility--e.g., what happened to Pan Am Flight 103's black boxes when the bomb went off.
