French investigators now 80% sure it was a bomb from cockpit sound, also reportedly some of the bodies had wounds from an explosion. Attention turning back to security at the airport with Egyptians interviewing ground staff, with the revelation many security cameras were non working and screens weren't manned. Airport staff also regularly offering passengers the chance to bypass security for a fee. A British plane landing at the airport a couple of months ago had to take evasive action from a missile passing within 1000ft, the Egyptian government claimed it was a training exercise round and the Dft accepted their explanation but now they aren't so sure.

HELMAND PROVINCE, Afghanistan (July 28, 2010) Equipment Operator 2nd Class Padraig Martin, a Seabee assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 5, uses a bulldozer to smooth an area where a cargo plane crash-landed. The Seabees removed the passengers from the plane and performed first aid until rescue personnel arrived. There were no injuries during the crash. NMCB-5 is deployed to Afghanistan executing general engineering, infrastructure construction and project management to support Operation Enduring Freedom.

According to ANTONOV’s data, this aircraft was taken out of service (officially) but continued to fly.

Unsuccessful attempt!

On November 4, 2015, after take off from Juba airport, South Sudan, AN−12 transport crashed. It fell at a distance of 800 m from the runway.
On information being in the ANTONOV Company’s disposal, the AN−12B, side EY−406, factory No.01347704, was registered in Republic of Tajikistan. This aircraft was constructed at Tashkent Aircraft Production Plant on February 26, 1971.
According to ANTONOV’s data, this AN−12B (factory No.01347704) had no enough possibilities to perform flights. The fact is that maintenance forms requested by the Operational manual, including those on service life extension and works to provide further safety operation, have been not performed in time.
In accordance with International ICAO requirements, aviation authority of South Sudan, the country where the aircraft crashed, or Republic of Tajikistan, the country, where the aircraft was registered, has to officially inform State Aviation Administration of Ukraine or Ukrainian Bureau on investigation of catastrophes and incidents of civil aircraft about the crash. Aviation authority of Ukraine will take a decision about participation of ANTONOV in investigation of this crash.
ANTONOV Company presents condolences to families of people suffered from the AN−12B crash.

1. These pics were taken more than two years ago.
2. We're talking about the AN-12. All of these aircraft were in operation for over 40 years!
3. Other aircraft manufacturers have more similar incidents. Antonov planes are among the most reliable in the world.

What are your goals? It seems to me that you were offended by an engineer of the Antonov Company. Maybe he stole your girlfriend or wife? I think you're pissed off, but it's not Antonov Company fault if she wants to be with him.

Turkey just shot down a Russian Air Force SU-24 on the Syrian Border. The plane crashed inside Syria a minute or two after being struck and one of the 2 crew members is reported to be dead despite both bailing out of the stricken plane.

I don't think any NATO country ever downed a Soviet operated or a Russian operated plane with a missile before.

Pilot shot (when he descended on a parachute).


On Saturday, Amos Gilad, director of the political-security bureau in the Defense Ministry, said at a public event in Beersheba that Russia has breached Israeli airspace more than once since it began intervening in Syria, but that the close security coordination between Jerusalem and Moscow had prevented any incidents like the one on the Turkish-Syrian border last week.

"Russian air force pilots at times cross into Israeli airspace. [But] thanks to the excellent security coordination [between Israel and Russia], which started right after the meeting between [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and Putin [two months ago], and in which defined areas of operation were set, the Israel Defense Forces and the Russian military agreed on security arrangements, "Gilad Said
…we created an open channel for coordination so as to prevent misunderstandings, because Russian planes are not trying to attack us and therefore it is not necessary to automatically – even if there is a mistake – to shoot them down.”
*Good example. Israel - an ally against terrorism.
*Turkey - an accomplice of terrorists.

Aircraft do not knock (6 seconds trespassing)

I'm sure there's a political thread you can take this to.

There is no policy. It - Aircraft incident.
Discuss Aviation incident. Without policy. Where politics?

Air France from Mauritius to CDG diverted to Mombasa, Kenya



An Air France flight from Mauritius to Paris was forced to land after a suspected bomb was found in the toilet, police say.

The Boeing 777, carrying 459 passengers and 14 crew members, diverted to Mombasa in Kenya after the suspicious device was discovered.

Those on board were evacuated and the suspected bomb removed. Bomb disposal experts are investigating.

The airport was closed during the operation.

Kenyan police spokesman Charles Owino said: "It requested an emergency landing when a device suspected to be an explosive was discovered in the lavatory."

It was a fake. A retired French policeman has been arrested.
