Okay, I just heard of this. Please make sure that we handle this issue as sensitively as professionally as possible. From multiple sources:

Attack at Istanbul Airport Leaves More Than 20 Dead (New York Times)
Quote:
Several attackers blew themselves up at Turkey’s largest airport after a confrontation with the police on Tuesday night, according to Turkish authorities and television reports.

At least 28 people were killed and 60 more were injured in the attack by three suicide bombers on the Ataturk airport in Istanbul, the governor of Istanbul, Vasip Sahin, told Turkish news media outlets.

Earlier, the justice minister, Bekir Bozdag, said that one of the attackers had fired an automatic weapon before detonating explosives.

Another Turkish government official said that the police fired shots at two suspected attackers at the entryway to the airport’s international terminal, in an effort to stop them before they reached the building’s security checkpoint. The two suspects then blew themselves up, the official said.
Istanbul airport explosions: 28 dead, 60 injured, Turkish official says (CNN)
Quote:
At least 28 people have been killed and 60 others wounded in a terror attack on Istanbul Ataturk Airport in Turkey, Istanbul Gov. Vasip Sahin told Turkey's state-run news agency TRT. Three bombers were also killed, the governor said. Another report, from semi-official news agency Anadolu, said six of the wounded are in critical condition. A total of 49 ambulances were sent to the site.

There has been no immediate claim of responsibility.

Traveler Joe Durand told CNN from the airport that "Police are not letting anyone in ... Hundreds of people are flooding away from airport... People are trying to get away. They're not saying much -- just the look on their face is enough, shock, some of them bleeding..."

"People are walking away bleeding, with bandages on their head."

Six of the wounded are in critical condition.

On late Tuesday night two terrorists detonated their suicide vests at the entry point of the international terminal before passing the x-ray security checkpoint.

It is suspected that three suicide attackers attacked the airport but it has not been confirmed.

One of the terrorists opened fire with an AK-47 assault rifle before detonating his suicide vest according to the Justice Minister.

Dozens of police, medics and fire brigades have been sent to the scene of the incident and the airport has been shutdown.

The fires are happening so close together to fully determine if it's a cropping common phenomena or random accidents. I hope they figure it out soon because so far we've been lucky that the fires have occurred on ground level. The BA fire spread so quickly that I doubt the plane would have diverted and landed in time before it was completely engulfed in flames had it been cruising above 30K ft over the Atlantic.

Yes, I saw that one too.

In other news, a UA Flight 840 B787 from SYD to LAX had to make an emergency landing after a bird strike. No injuries but lots of worried folks.

Indian Air Force plane AN-32 with 29 on board goes missing

NEW DELHI: An Indian Air Force (IAF) plane with 29 people on board has gone missing over the Bay of Bengal amid inclement weather.

The IAF's AN-32 plane took off from Tambaram in Chennai for Port Blair in the Andaman & Nicobar Islands when it lost radar contact around 8:45 am. Its estimated time of arrival in Port Blair was 11.30 am.

The Navy, the Coast Guard and the IAF have launched a joint search and rescue operation. Of the 29 people on board, six are crew members.

The Navy has involved a P8I aircraft and a Donier aircraft, and four ships — Karmukh, Gharial, Jyoti and Kuthar - for its search operation.

The aircraft can fly for up to four hours without refuelling.

Air traffic control sources at Chennai airport said that the aircraft usually flies at 21,000 to 23,000 feet level which is much lower than civil aircraft altitude. It carries supplies for the defence base in Andamans daily.

"Routine military movements are not closely tracked because such planes fly well below the altitude of commercial carriers over the sea. The flight often goes off contact on radar after it crosses 150 miles away from Chennai because the signal strength is poor and it may not be equipped with modern tracking system. Pilot will be in touch with voice communication if needed. Its absence will be known only when it does not show up at a particular place under the range of Port Blair or before," an air traffic control source said. As a routine message did not arrive, Chennai airport and air force authorities alerted other planes in the vicinity. As blip could not be tracked, it was declared missing, he added http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/i...w/53335306.cms

looks like it is a fake. How absolutely 3 identical aircraft could crash in one place?

This is a train wreck. The three 737's were on a train going to the factory for assembly.

The incident at Dubai is a serious crash landing after a failed go around, after which the plane caught fire. All passengers and crew are accounted for after emergency deplaning, luckily no fatalities.

Impressed they got everyone out of the plane considering its reduction to a burnt-out hulk. A testament to excellent cabin and flight crew training.

OMG, so lucky no fatalities. On other videos you can see a huge ball of fire and some big peace of the plane being ejected into the air.

The explosion, just after evacuation, blew the right wing off.
