Zimbabwe cargo plane crashes at Shanghai airport
By CARA ANNA (AP) – 1 hour ago

BEIJING — A Zimbabwe-registered cargo plane crashed shortly after taking off Saturday from a Shanghai airport with seven crew members aboard, state media and witnesses said.

The official Xinhua News Agency reported that four crew members, all foreigners, were injured. The status of the other three was not immediately clear.

China Central Television showed billowing thick black smoke at the scene, with police officers blocking closer access.

A reporter from Shanghai's Oriental Satellite Television told CCTV that the tail of the plane had broken in two or three parts, and hundreds of firefighters were spraying fire retardants on the plane.

The reporter said the four injured people were conscious.

A man answering phones at the Pudong International Airport cargo information office who requested anonymity confirmed the crash but had no details.

Xinhua said the crash occurred at 7:40 a.m. (2340 GMT Friday).

SHANGHAI — A cargo plane crashed shortly after taking off from the Pudong International Airport here on Saturday morning, killing three American crew members and injuring four others, including an American.

The plane, which was bound for Kyrgyzstan, caught fire shortly after taking off about 8:10 a.m. Saturday, according to China’s state-run news media.



The cause of the accident, which created huge delays at one of China’s largest airports, is under investigation by Chinese aviation officials. The government said that the plane was registered with Avient Aviation, based in Zimbabwe, and that the crew included an Indonesian and a citizen of Zimbabwe.

The United States Embassy in Beijing confirmed Saturday that three Americans had been killed and that another was injured. Richard L. Buangan, a spokesman for the embassy, said that the victims’ names had not been released and that the embassy was notifying their families.

State-run news media said the four survivors were in stable condition at the intensive care unit of the People’s Hospital in the Pudong section of Shanghai. Officials did not say what type of cargo was onboard the plane.

Experts investigate Air France distress call about turbulence on November Rio-Paris flight
10 December 2009

PARIS (AP) - French aviation investigators are examining an emergency distress call from an Air France flight hit by turbulence last month, saying it could shed light on the June crash of a plane heading from Rio de Janeiro to Paris.

Air France Flight 445 made it through heavy turbulence on November 29 as it flew from Rio to Paris. That was the same route, the same airline and same aircraft type -- an Airbus A330-200 -- as Air France Flight 447, which plunged into the Atlantic on June 1, killing all 228 people on board.

France's accident investigation agency BEA said its probe of last month's incident could help explain why the June flight went down.

French newspaper Le Figaro reported Thursday that pilots in November made the distress call when the plane was just 10 nautical miles from the area where the ill-fated jet went down months earlier.

Flight 447 jet was flying from Rio de Janeiro to Paris when it went down about 930 miles (1,500 kilometers) off Brazil's mainland and out of radar coverage. Investigators have not yet solved the crash.

In a Dec. 1 statement, Air France said an internal investigation found that about four hours into the November flight, the pilots carried out a "normal descent" to avoid a zone of severe turbulence. The pilots sent an emergency radio call to indicate that the jet was leaving its flight altitude level, Air France said.

The flight, with 215 people on board, experienced moderate to heavy turbulence for half an hour then continued on normally, said the carrier.

Flight 447 was Air France's deadliest crash. Investigators may never determine what happened because months of searches in the Atlantic did not turn up the flight recorders.

40 passengers injured in American Airlines crash at Jamaica airport

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Forty passengers were reported injured after an American Airlines plane crashed and broke in two after landing at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston shortly after 10:00 pm Tuesday.

“The injured passengers have been taken to the Kingston Public Hospital,” Information Minister Daryl Vaz told the Observer. “There are no reports of fatalities.”

Vaz, along with Transport and Works Minister Mike Henry and National Security Minister Dwight Nelson were quick on the scene and engaged in a head count from the passenger manifest to determine if anyone was missing.

Flight AA331, a Boeing 737, had just arrived from Miami in pouring rain with approximately 148 passengers when the accident occurred.

“The plane crashed and broke almost in front of me,” said a shaken Naomi Palmer who was seated at seat number D8.

Palmer said she was feeling some pain and was being supported by a friend on the outside of the arrival area when she spoke with the Observer.

Emergency vehicles sirens could be heard in the background as she spoke via cellphone.

American Airlines plane overshoots runway in Jamaica


An American Airlines plane has overshot the runway on landing in the Jamaican capital Kingston, injuring more than 40 people, officials say.



Flight AA 331 from Miami, with about 150 people on board, is reported to have broken apart after the incident at Norman Manley International Airport.

Jamaican Information Minister Daryl Vaz said 44 people had been taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.

American Airlines said the impact had broken off the right engine.

Spokesman Tim Smith said the fuselage was cracked and the main landing gear had collapsed.

Passenger Pilar Abaurrea told the Associated Press news agency of chaotic scenes when the plane hit the ground.

"All of a sudden... the plane was kind of bouncing, someone said the plane was skidding and there was panic," she said.

She said the pilot had warned of turbulence just before landing, but had said it probably would not be too serious.

Local journalist Roland Henry said the plane had halted near the beach.

The plane came to a halt near the beach, a local journalist said

He said survivors had thought the plane was landing normally before there was a series of jolts and luggage fell from overhead lockers.

Mr Vaz told the Jamaica Observer newspaper there were no reports of any deaths.

"The injured passengers have been taken to the Kingston Public Hospital," he said.

Most of the injuries were believed to be cuts, bruises and some broken bones.

Airport official Paul Hall said four people were seriously injured but gave no further details.

Ryanair jet slides off Glasgow Prestwick airport runway

Ryanair jet slides off Glasgow Prestwick airport runwayNo passengers or crew injured in accident caused by icy weather conditions

The Ryanair passenger jet after sliding off the runway at Glasgow Prestwick airport.


A Ryanair jet slid off the runway at Glasgow's Prestwick airport this morning but there were no casualties among the 129 passengers and cabin crew.

Treacherous conditions saw the Boeing 737-800 slide on to a grass verge of Glasgow's second-largest airport as it taxied to the terminal.

"When you come on to the runway it's full of black ice," Ryanair passenger Alex Paton told the BBC.

Prestwick has been closed temporarily while emergency services attempt to remove the jet.

A Ryanair spokesman said passengers and crew on the Dublin-to-Gatwick service were bussed to the terminal after leaving the aircraft routinely, albeit on to a muddy patch of grass rather than the tarmac.

"Ryanair engineers are at the aircraft, which appears to have suffered no damage, and they are working with Glasgow (Prestwick) to return the aircraft to the stand area so that the runway can be reopened with minimum delay," the spokesman said.

The accident adds to problems for air passengers attempting to reach Scotland's largest city this morning, with Glasgow airport also suffering delays owing to the weather.
