An update on avherald about the accident in Dubai:

http://avherald.com/h?article=49c12302&opt=0

Quote:
A passenger in the aft cabin reported, that the approach was normal, there had been no announcements or indications of anything abnormal. Then there was a heavy impact, oxygen masks came down, the aircraft skidded shaking violently and immediately filling with smoke and came to a stop. All doors were opened, it appeared however not all of them were used for evacuation. After sliding down the chute the passenger began to run, about 100 meters from the aircraft an explosion was heard (editorial note: watch video "The aircraft erupting into flames", the right wing caught fire and including right hand engine separated from the aircraft).

Another passenger reported that the captain made an announcement they would land at Dubai and the weather was fine, nothing appeared to be amiss. Suddenly the aircraft hit the ground tail/belly first, at the same time the right hand engine caught fire, and the aircraft skidded to a halt, smoke filled the cabin, only at this time the passengers realised the seriousness of the situation. The accident came entirely out of the blue.

According to ATC recordings the aircraft performed a normal approach and landing, there was no priority or emergency declared. Upon contacting tower tower advised the crew to plan to vacate the runway at taxiway M9 (editorial note: which several listeners including the editor originally understood as a reminder for the crew to lower the gear) and cleared the aircraft to land. Another approach reported on tower frequency. About 2 minutes after EK-521 reported on tower, the crew reported going around, tower instructed the aircraft to climb to 4000 feet, the crew acknowledged climbing to 4000 feet, a few seconds later tower instructs the next arrival to go around and alerts emergency services. The position of the aircraft is described near the end of the runway.

Southwest Lose an Engine in flight.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...engine-failure

That is NOT an uncontained failure. The high pressure components are all fully contained. It seems the front of the nacelle disintegrated instead.

Not engine, but engine's inlet cowling.
Question is how this occurred...

People onboard were lucky, falling parts damaged fuselage, wing and horizontal stabilizer. It's miracle that fuselage withstood instead of going into decompression explosion...

SpaceX lose ANOTHER rocket.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-37247077

Quote:
A rocket operated by the aerospace company SpaceX has exploded on the launch pad at Cape Canaveral where it was being test-fired ahead of a launch.
In a statement, the company blamed the blast on "an anomaly" and said no-one had been injured.
It said the rocket's payload, a satellite due to be launched on Saturday, was also destroyed.
The force of the blast shook buildings several miles away and sent a plume of smoke high above the complex.
Some Anomaly that.

Edit. Bang at 1 minute in

This article details how incredibly lucky the passengers were after the Emirates 777 crashlanded in Dubai last month.

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...cuatio-429069/

Quote:
Four of the left-hand doors were ultimately opened – the central door was left shut owing to smoke outside – but their slides were either blown up against the aircraft or, in one case, detached before it could be used.

Netherland had just release the investigation report of MH17 by Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

MH17 missile 'came from Russia', Dutch-led investigators say



Quote:
International prosecutors investigating the downing of flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine in 2014 say the Buk missile that hit the plane was from Russia.
They also narrowed down the area it was fired from to a field in territory controlled by Russian-backed rebels.

All 298 people on board the Boeing 777 died when it broke apart in mid-air flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

Russia says the conclusions are "extremely political" and its Buk missiles "never shot down" the plane.

"Based on the criminal investigation, we have concluded that flight MH17 was downed by a Buk missile of the series 9M83 that came from the territory of the Russian Federation," chief Dutch police investigator Wilbert Paulissen said in a news conference on Thursday.

Southwestern 737 readies for takeoff when another of those pesky Samsung batteries explodes.

http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-37570100

Safe evacuation ensues. Problem is that this is a 'fixed' replacement battery.

767 Written Off in Chicago.

http://m.dw.com/en/american-airlines...ort/a-36193523

Seems it was like the Concorde disaster some years ago. Object on runway pierced fuel tank when thrown up by wheels on takeoff.

Fortunately it rejected takeoff and all are well.

Is it an international standard? I find a bit odd to use empirial metrics.

Flight diverted Thursday, 24.11.2016 at 06.49

Norwegian flight to Helsinki forced to land in Stockholm - due to aircraft technical fault.


The Las Palmas to Helsinki flight was forced to land in Stockholm the night between Wednesday and Thursday apparently due to a technical fault in the plane.


The plane was due to land at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport at 00:10, but had to divert to Stockholm to land there.



Finavia's operations center says the reason for this was obviously a technical fault on the airplane.

The flight finally arrived at Helsinki-Vantaa airport at 3:30 in the morning.

Other flights have landed at Helsinki-Vantaa airport normally through the night.
