Plane with 6 on board missing in Bahamas, official says
 

17.01.2018/ 13:00 UTC
Bahamas/ North Andros/ near Mastic Point

 
Aviation officials in the Bahamas say a search is ongoing for a small plane that was traveling to the capital of Nassau and never reached its destination. The twin-engine Piper PA-23-250 Aztec F (N62769) was en route from the island of Andros when air traffic controllers lost radar contact. There were six people on board. The Kingdom Airways LLC, owner of the plane, is a local airline and the pilot was Bahamian. All occupants are dead including businessman Carter Campbell. There was fog and low visibility around New Providence at the time air traffic control first registered the plane on radar but it's not known why the plane apparently turned back toward Andros.
In February 2018 the aircraft was recovered from waters adjacent to the previous search location by a salvage team with assistance from specialist divers of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force. “All major components and parts of the aircraft were recovered.” said Chief Investigator of the Air Accident Investigation Department Delvin Major.

3 soldiers die after Turkish military training aircraft crashes in Isparta
3 soldiers die after Turkish military training aircraft crashes in Isparta17.01.2018/ 09:50 UTC
Turkey/ Isparta province
Three crew members aboard the CASA CN-235 military training plane (98-148) died Tuesday after the aircraft crashed in Turkey's southern Isparta province. Rescue teams reached the wreck of the aircraft at a remote location in Yalvaç district. There was thick fog in the area, which was likely the cause of the incident.
Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) said in a statement that the aircraft took off for a planned training flight from the 1st Jet Base Command in central Eskişehir province at 11:03 a.m. with two pilots and a technician. Radar connection was lost with the plane around 12:50 p.m., and rescue teams reached the plane's wreck north of Lake Eğirdir around 2:30 p.m., it added.
The families of the killed soldiers Major Ümit Karamustafa and Captain Ali Şahin were informed by officials.

 

В Турции разбился военный самолет: 3-е погибших
 

17.01.2018/ 09:50 UTC
Турция/ Испарта/ Ялвач

 
В турецкой Испарте потерпел крушение учебный военный самолет, в результате чего погибли три члена экипажа.
По данным Генштаба ВС Турции, военный самолет типа CN-235 CASА (98-148) выполнял плановый полет. В 11.03 он поднялся в воздух с первого аэродрома турецких ВВС в Эскишехире. Приблизительно в 12.50 связь с ним прервалась, сразу после чего началась поисково- спасательная операция. В 14:30 обломки самолета и тела погибших военнослужащих - 2-х пилотов и бортинженера - были обнаружены к северу от озера Эгирдир в провинции Испарта. Предпологают, что крушение самолета связано со сложными климатическими условиями – снегом и густым туманом.

Zimbabwe opposition leader among 5 killed in NM helicopter crash

5 killed in NM helicopter crash18.01.2018/ 01:00 UTC
USA/ NM/ Raton

The Bell UH-1H Iroquois helicopter (N658H) crashed under unknown circumstances. Paul Cobb was no stranger to a helicopter, teaching others as an instructor and flying them while working for the Pasadena Police Department. The 67-year-old, who was co-pilot on a helicopter headed to his friend's New Mexico ranch, didn't finish his trip late Wednesday as he was among two men from the Houston area found dead.
The group was traveling to the New Mexico ranch of Cobb's longtime friend Charles Burnett's, 61, a Houston businessman. Jamie Coleman Dodd, 57, of Colorado, who was the pilot of the helicopter, was also among the dead.
Also among the dead were Zimbabwe opposition leader Roy Bennett, 60, and his wife, Eileen Bennett, 55. Cobb's daughter, Andra Cobb, 39, was injured and the sole survivor of the crash.
The aircraft was apparently traveling to Folsom, New Mexico, less than 40 miles away. The injured victim of the crash called 911 after the helicopter went down Wednesday evening near the Colorado state line and authorities launched a search. The fiery wreckage was found in a remote area near Raton in northern New Mexico. Authorities on Thursday were investigating the cause of the crash.
Paul Cobb, a licensed pilot was named Pasadena police chief in 2001. The Conroe resident met Burnett more than two decades ago as an instructor teaching others to fly helicopters. The two men stayed friends and often flew together. Paul Cobb briefly served in the Army in Vietnam in 1970 and wanted to become a helicopter pilot, but was shot and had to return home after just 13 days.
He went on to join the Pasadena police force, where he often flew the department's helicopter.
Charles Burnett III was the wealthy British eccentric best known for holding the world speed record for a steam-powered car.
Some of Mr Burnett’s friends are questioning whether last Wednesday’s fatal crash in New Mexico was accidental. Suspicions have been raised because Roy Bennett, a leading opponent of Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe, was also killed. The 60-year-old Zimbabwean was treasurer-general of Morgan Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change. He had previously received death threats.
People are highly suspicious about the circumstances of the crash,’ said a friend of Mr Burnett. ‘The chopper went down on a clear night with two highly qualified pilots on board. There has been talk in private about Charles bankrolling Roy’s political ambitions. Was he planning to help Roy launch an opposition campaign in Zimbabwe?’

Chinese military plane crashed in training exercise, at least 12 deadChinese military plane crashed in training exercise, at least 12 dead
 

29.01.2018/ afternoon
China/ Guizhou Province/ Suiyang County/ Zhengchang

 
An unidentified aircraft, operated by the Chinese Air Force, PLAAF, was destroyed when it impacted terrain near Zhengchang, Guizhou Province, China.
Little information was released by Chinese defense officials. While the aircraft type was not disclosed, video footage from the wreckage shows what seems to be part of a serial on a tail fin. This would point to Shaanxi Y-8GX-3 (30513). The Y-8GX-3 is an airborne command post and ECM version of the Y-8, which is a Chinese development of the Antonov An-12. Chinese sources suggest that there were 5 crew members and 7 military personnel on the flight. There were no survivors.

В Томской области разбился вертолет Ми-8 новосибирской компании „Ельцовка”

 
12.02.2018/ 07:40 UTC
Россия/ Томская обл./ на удалении 100 км от а/п Стрежевой
 

Финальный отчет

 
Днем в понедельник, 12 февраля, из поселка Прохоркино в райцентр Александровское Томской области, должен был состояться рейс санавиации. Для северного населенного пункта – отвозить пациентов до районной больницы дело привычное. На другой технике зимой к поселку не подобраться, так что других вариантов, кроме вертолета, нет.
Экипажу предстояло доставить 45-летнюю пациентку Галину Миронову в больницу. У женщины было подозрение на психическое расстройство.
На борту, кроме самой пациентки, ради которой организовали рейс, находились трое членов экипажа, полицейский и фельдшер. Вылет состоялся, но до пункта назначения вертолет не долетел.
В МЧС поступила информация о том, что в 14:46 по местному времени сработал аварийный буй вертолета Ми-8, - пояснили в ГУ МЧС России по Томской области. Связи с экипажем не было. На поиск воздушного судна вылетели вертолёты Ми-8 из соседнего Каргасокского района, и еще один из Стрежевого. В 17.30 рухнувший вертолет обнаружили в 42 километрах юго-восточнее села Александровское Александровского района.
Двое человек – это члены экипажа – погибли. Еще один член экипажа и трое пассажиров доставлены в больницу города Стрежевой.
В реанимации были приняты двое пострадавших: член экипажа Григорий Владимирович Шепелев 1960 года рождения, у него диагностирована политравма (он из Стрежевого).
С таким же диагнозом находится и сама пациентка, которую госпитализировали из Прохоркино.
В хирургическом отделении находятся двое других пострадавших: фельдшер Дмитрий Сергеевич Сыренко 1985 года (он родом из Стрежевого, врачи диагностировали у него закрытую черепно-мозговую травму, ушибы мягких тканей, переохлаждение) и полицейский Андрей Николаевич Чуприна 1977 года рождения (он родом из Стрежевого, врачи диагностировали у него закрытую черепно-мозговую травму, ушибы шеи, грудной клетки).
Вертолет Ми-8Т (RA-22330), принадлежит авиакомпании "Ельцовка", экипаж 3 человека.
В компании изымается вся документация относительно этого вертолета. Возбуждено уголовное дело по признакам преступления, предусмотренного ч. 3 ст. 263 УК РФ (нарушение правил безопасности движения воздушного транспорта, повлекшее по неосторожности смерть двух лиц). Из Новосибирска на место ЧП выехала следственная группа.
Во время расследования авиакатастрофы было выяснено, что в течение периода времени 07:15:00 – 07:39:39 полет проходил в штатном режиме, без отклонений и замечаний со стороны экипажа. В 07:30 КВС передал управление второму пилоту. В 07:39:39 вертолет начал самопроизвольно крениться вправо и за 3 с достиг крена 13.3°. На вопрос КВС о причинах создания крена, второй пилот ответил, что управляющих действий не производил. КВС взял управление вертолетом на себя. В 07:39:45 вертолет опять стал крениться вправо и за 3.5 с достиг крена 31° с одновременным увеличением угла тангажа до 9° на кабрирование. Из объяснений КВС, самопроизвольное кренение вертолета вправо было определено им как неисправность в системе поперечного управления.
При осмотре вертолета на месте АП было выявлено отсутствие болта КАУ30Б-022 на штатном месте на КАУ-30Б системы поперечного управления. Указанный болт является передающим звеном от ручки управления на управляющий золотник КАУ-30Б поперечного управления, и его отсутствие означает, что в системе поперечного управления произошло рассоединение,

и вертолет стал неуправляем по крену.
Следует отметить, что движение болта КАУ30Б-022 при сходе со штатного места первоначально привело к возникновению небольших самопроизвольных кренов (которые отмечены на расшифровке параметров полета, которые были компенсированы экипажем, так как произошло рассогласование системы поперечного управления, а рассоединения еще не произошло.
После рассоединения поперечного управления осталось постоянное управляющее воздействие, кренящее вертолет вправо.
По результатам дешифрирования параметрического самописца, вертолет с левым креном около 30°, с углом тангажа на пикирование 16° и поступательной скоростью около 210 км/ч, ломая деревья, столкнулся с землей.
После удара ВС подбросило вверх. Далее вертолет правым бортом столкнулся с березой толщиной около 25 см, развернулся влево и опрокинулся на правый борт. Наиболее вероятно, что при соударении вертолета с землей и деревьями произошло разрушение топливных баков с последующим возгоранием топлива.
Анализ дешифрирования средств объективного контроля, показаний КВС и технического состояния ВС свидетельствует о том, что причина АП техническая и связана с рассоединением системы поперечного управления вертолетом из-за отсутствия болта КАУ30Б-022 на штатном месте на КАУ-30Б.
Так как на момент утверждения данного отчета болт КАУ30Б-022, корончатая гайка, шайба под гайку, две подпруженные шайбы, шплинт и контровка с заводской пломбой обнаружены не были, однозначно установить причину выхода болта со штатного места не представляется возможным.

 

Вертолет Ми-8Т се разби в Сибир

12.02.2018/ 07:40 UTC
Русия/ Томска област/ на 100 км от град Стрежевой

Транспортен вертолет Ми-8Т (RA-22330) на новосибирската компания „Елцовка” се разби в брезова гора на 100 км от град Стрежевой и на 42 км от Александровское, Томска област, Русия. Полета бил по маршрут с. Прохоркино – районен център Александровское за превозване на пациентка с прояви на психическо разстройство. Освен нея на борда били още 3-членният екипаж, фелдшер и полицай. Към 14:39 м. вр. вторият пилот отбелязъл невъзможност да стабилизира крена на вертолета при полета. Управлението поел командирът на екипажа и установявайки, че има проблем с напречното управление, бързо взел решение за принудително кацане, но се разбили. Вертолетът бил обхванат от пламъци. Загинали вторият пилот и бордният механик.

Командирът на въздухоплавателното средство и пътниците били открити своевременно от спасителните екипи и откарани за лечение в болницата в Стрежевой. С най-тежки травми е жената.
При разследването се оказало, че липсва болт КАУ30Б-022 от системата за напречното управление КАУ-30Б, което прави невъзможно управлението на вертолета по крен. Комисията заключава, че не може еднозначно да се определи причината за разрушаването (изпадането) на болта. Същият не е открит. Няма посочени виновни за катастрофата.

Russian transport plane crashes at Syria base, killing all 39 on board
 
06.03.2018/ around 12:00 GMT
Syria/ Khmeimim Airbase
 
A Russian military transport airplane has crashed during landing at Khmeimim Airbase in Syria around 15:00 Moscow time. 
All on board 6 crew members as well as 33 passengers, all of them military personnel, were killed in the crash. 
The airplane hit the ground some 500 meters from the runway. The incident could have been caused by a technical malfunction.
It did not come under fire before the incident, the Russian military said, but the rebels belonged to Jaish al-Islam group took the responsibility for the crash.
The Antonov An-26, also known as Curl under its NATO reporting name, is a twin-engine turboprop aircraft designed as a multipurpose tactical transport plane. It was developed in the Soviet Union in the 1960s. Some 450 such aircraft are still in service, with most of them used by the Russian military.

 

В Сирии разбился российский транспортный самолет Ан-26

  

В Сирии разбился российский транспортный самолет Ан-2606.03.2018/ 12:00 UTC
Сирия/ Латакия/ Хмеймим

 
Катастрофа Ан-26 в Латакии — крупная авиационная катастрофа, произошедшая 6 марта 2018 года. Самолет Ан-26 (RF-92955 – 52 красный) разбился в 500 метрах от ВПП базы Хмеймим, в результате все находившиеся на борту
39 человек погибли.
Самолет Ан-26, принадлежал к 6-й армии ВВС и ПВО (Санкт-Петербург). Самолет использовался для внутренних сирийских перевозок, во всяком случае, в Хмеймим он вылетел с Кувейриса, дважды садился на промежуточных аэродромах (в том числе и Думейре), и только затем направился в Хмеймим.
Самолет разбился при заходе на посадку в пункте назначения примерно в 15:00 по московскому времени 6 марта 2018 года, не долетев 500 метров до взлетно-посадочной полосы. По данным Министерства обороны Российской Федерации, на борту упавшего самолета были 33 пассажира (все военнослужащие российской армии, из них 27 офицеров и сержантов, один в звании генерал-майора) и шесть членов экипажа, все они погибли, предварительной причиной была названа техническая неисправность. Один из очевидцев в подробностях описал момент трагедии: "Самолет при заходе на посадку резко увело в сторону, где-то через секунд семь его развернуло обратно, затем он резко начал терять высоту, при ударе о землю судно перевернулось и оторвалось крыло, оно влетело в теплицы местных жителей, сам самолет понесло по земле дальше, пожар вспыхнул мгновенно".
7 марта исламистская группировка "Джейш аль-Ислам" взяла ответственность на себя за сбитый самолет, но подтверждений этому не найдено. Сослуживцы КВС рассказали, что наверно их сбили пулеметами из жилого микрорайона.
По другим сведениям, самолет был изготовлен в 1980 году, и причиной катастрофы могла стать его изношенность. У участников расследования крушения Ан-26 в Сирии появилась версия, подтверждающая технические причины авиакатастрофы. Сообщается, что транспортный самолет мог не дотянуть несколько сотен метров до аэродрома из-за повреждения закрылков. Последние данные снимают с пилотов ответственность за произошедшую трагедию.
Среди погибших — генерал-майор Владимир Еремеев, 1 полковник, 2 капитана 1-го ранга, 6 майоров, 29 младших офицеров и сержантов.
Из них, шесть членов экипажа:
КВС -
Майор Смирнов С. Г.
Штурман — старший лейтенант
Константин Алтунин.

 

Руски самолет Ан-26 се разби в Сирия, 39 загинали

  

06.03.2018/ 12:00 UTC
Сирия/ Латакия/ Хмеймим

 
Руски военно-транспортен самолет Ан-26 (RF-92955 – 52 червен) извършващ полет от Кувейрис за Хмеймим с две промеждутъчни кацания се е разбил при кацане на 500 м от началото на ПИК в авиобаза Хмеймим. Няма оцелели от намиращите се на борда 39 души, офицери и сержанти, сред които и генерал-майор Владимир Еремеев. Според очевидци на произшествието самолетът рязко се отклонил встрани при захода си за кацане. След 7 секунди отклонението му било компенсирано, но започнал бързо да губи височина, ударил се в земята и преобърнал, при което крило се отделило от фюзелажа и влетяло в оранжерия на местни жители. Самолетът се плъзнал по-нататък и запалил.

По самолета не е забелязано да е воден вражески огън, но на 07 март ислямистката групировка Джейш ал-Ислам заявява, че нейни бойци са обстрелвали самолета с тежки картечници, което довело до катастрофата. Колеги на командира на екипажа са споделили дискретно, че прелитайки над близкия жилищен квартал самолетът е бил обстрелван със стрелково оръжие. Самолетът е произведен през 1980 г и официалната версия за трагедията е откъсване на задкрилка поради остарялост на метала, т.е. техническа неизправност, което снема отговорността от летците за катастрофата.

Russia/ Chechnya/ Itum-Kali


Six people were killed and one was injured in a Russian Mi-8 helicopter crash in Chechnya, after the rotor blades touched the ground causing the aircraft to fall. There were 9 people on board. Two of them jumped just before the crash. The aircraft belongs to the border troops. Six medical teams from several Chechen regions are working in the site of the accident. Kadyrov said "complicated weather conditions" may have caused the crash on March 7 in the mountains of southern Chechnya.

В среду при заходе на посадочную площадку, находящуюся в горной местности, вертолет войсковой части Ми-8 столкнулся с землей. По факту крушения вертолета возбуждено уголовное дело по ст. 351 УК РФ (нарушение правил полетов, повлекшее тяжкие последствия).
Вертолет пограничного управления, который базируется в Тусхарое Итум-калинского района, полетел, чтобы отвезти пограничников на заставу.
"Вертолет снизился, чтобы высадить пограничников. Когда он завис в двух метрах от земли, произошел резкий порыв ветра. Вертолет заволокло, двое пограничников успели спрыгнуть. 7 человек оставались в вертолете, когда он уже с обрыва высотой в 150 метров упал в пропасть", - написал Кадыров в Telegram.
Из пропасти достали наверх пять тел и двоих тяжело раненых бойцов, один из которых скончался в республиканском госпитале. Второй находится в стабильно тяжелом состоянии под бдительным контролем врачей. "Я желаю скорейшего выздоровления раненому бойцу, и приношу искренние соболезнования семьям погибших", - добавил глава Чечни.

Вертолет Ми-8 на Граничната служба на ФСБ се е разбил при опит за кацане в планински район. Предполага се, че сложните метеорологични условия в района – сняг, дъжд и ограничена видимост – са от факторите довели до катасгрофата. На борда е имало 9 души. При кацането порив на вятъра поднесъл вертолета, той закачил земята с перките на основния винт, обърнал се и разбил в пропастта. Двама от граничарите успели да скочат навреме, от останалите седем 5 загинали на място, един починал в болницата от нараняваниата, а един се намира в тежко, но стабилизирано състояние.

Plane flying from United Arab Emirates to Turkey crashes in Iran, killing 11

Plane flying from United Arab Emirates to Turkey crashes in Iran, killing 1111.03.2018/ 14:40 UTC
Iran/ Tehran/ Shahr-e Kord

A Turkish private jet Bombardier CL604 (TC-TRB), belonged to Basaran Holding Company, flying a group of young women from the United Arab Emirates to Istanbul crashed Sunday in heavy rain in a mountainous region of Iran, killing all 11 people on board. Days earlier, the doomed aircraft carried a bachelorette party bound for Dubai. The plane hit a mountain near Shahr-e Kord and burst into flames. Shahr-e Kord is some 370 kilometres (230 miles) south of the capital, Tehran.
Local villagers had reached the site in the Zagros Mountains and found only badly burned bodies and no survivors. DNA tests would be needed to identify the dead. Villagers said they saw flames coming from the plane’s engine before the crash.
The plane took off from Sharjah International Airport late Sunday afternoon and climbed to a cruising altitude of just over 35,000 feet. A little over an hour later, it rapidly gained altitude and then dropped drastically within minutes, according to FlightRadar24, a flight-tracking website.
Basaran Investment Holding is active in the food, finance, energy, construction, tourism and travel industries, according to the company’s website.
Mina Basaran, the 28-year-old daughter of Basaran’s chairman who is part of the company’s board of managers and is in line to run the business, recently posted photographs on Instagram of what appeared to be her bachelorette party in Dubai. Iranian emergency management officials said all the passengers were young women.

Cessna crashed near Atqasuk, AK
 

11.04.2018/ 16:18 UTC
US/ AK/ Atqasuk

 
On April 11, 2018, about 0818 Alaska daylight time, a single-engine, turbine-powered Cessna 208B Grand Caravan airplane, N814GV, impacted snow-covered terrain about two miles north of the Atqasuk Airport, Atqasuk, Alaska. The airline transport pilot, the only occupant onboard, sustained minor injuries, and the airplane sustained substantial damage. The airplane was being operated by Hageland Aviation Services, Inc., dba Ravn Connect, Anchorage, Alaska, as a visual flight rules (VFR) cross-country cargo/mail flight under 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135. Visual meteorological conditions (VMC) existed at the flight's point of departure, and company flight-following procedures were in effect. The flight originated about 0758, from the Utqiagvik (formerly Barrow) Airport, Utqiagvik Alaska, and it was destined for Atqasuk, which is located about 58 miles south.
The area between Utqiagvik and Atqasuk consists of remote, flat, featureless, tundra-covered terrain, which is snow-covered in April.
During a telephone conversation with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator-in-charge (IIC) on April 12, the director of safety for the company related that the purpose of the flight was to transport a load of U.S. Post Office mail to Atqasuk. During a brief telephone conversation with the NTSB IIC on April 13, the accident pilot said that he departed from Utqiagvik just before 0800 with approximately 1,500 pounds of mail on board that was destined for Atqasuk. He noted that weather conditions at the time of departure consisted of clear skies, 9 miles visibility, and a light wind. After takeoff, the airplane climbed to 2,500 feet msl, and proceeded southbound towards Atqasuk. The pilot said that as the airplane neared Atqasuk, with the autopilot engaged, the airplane descended to about 1,500 feet msl, but then he noticed an area of low fog around Atqasuk. He said that when the airplane was about two miles from the airport, he heard the audible autopilot disengagement annunciator tone sound, which was immediately followed by the pilot's control column pitching forward. The pilot said that he was unable to pull the control column back, and the airplane subsequently descended into instrument meteorological conditions. He said that the airplane continued to descend into the fog, then it struck the snow- covered tundra, and nosed over. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the wings, fuselage, and empennage.
The airplane was equipped with a digital, 406 MHz ELT that instantly transmits a distress signal to search and rescue satellites, thereby alerting rescue personnel within minutes of the location of the crash. However, no emergency transmitter locator (ELT) signal was received by search personnel, but the pilot was able to use his cell phone to alert company personnel of the accident.
During a telephone conversation with the NTSB IIC on April 13, a North Slope Borough Search and Rescue helicopter pilot said that while en route from Utqiagvik to the accident site he encountered ice fog, reduced visibility, and flat light conditions that made it difficult to discern topographical features on the snow-covered tundra. He noted that as the flight continued, both pilots noticed ice beginning to accumulate on the helicopter's windscreen, so the decision was made to abort the search and rescue flight, and the helicopter returned to Utqiagvik. A search team from Atqasuk eventually reached the accident site on snow machines and transported the pilot to Atqasuk.
The closest recorded weather reporting facility was the Utqiagvik Airport, 58 miles north of the accident site. The 0753 observation reported, in part: Wind, 030° at 9 knots; visibility, 9 statute miles; clouds and sky condition, clear; temperature, minus 7° F; dew point, minus 3° F; altimeter, 29.66 inches of Mercury.
A detailed examination of the airplane wreckage is pending.

Six Killed In Helicopter Crash In Russia's Far East

 
11.04.2018, 01:18 UTC
Russia/ Khabarovsk

 
Six people have died in a helicopter crash in the Russian Far East city of Khabarovsk. The Mi-8ПС-9 helicopter (RA-24640) operated by local airline Vostok crashed on April 11. All six people aboard were killed, it said. There were no reports of casualties on the ground.

The Investigative Committee said the flight had been training and because of the poor weather and bad visibility the crew hit a broadcast radio tower and crashed. The helicopter caught fire and burnt.

Regional authorities declared April 12 a day of mourning in Khabarovsk Krai, a region on the Chinese border some 6,200 kilometers east of Moscow.

Окончательный отчет

 
11.04.2018 в 3-х км западнее п. п. Хабаровск-МВЛ произошло авиационное происшествие с вертолетом Ми-8ПС-9 (RA-24640)
АО "Авиакомпания «Восток".

По имеющейся информации, выполнялся тренировочный полет, находившиеся на борту шесть членов экипажа погибли, воздушное судно разрушилось и сгорело.
В соответствии с российским воздушным законодательством Межгосударственный авиационный комитет (МАК) сформировал комиссию по расследованию данного авиационного происшествия.
Первый взлет ВС с целью тренировки первого КВС был выполнен в 01:01 11.04.2018. Полеты выполнялись в районе посадочной площадки по ПВП, по кругу, на высотах 100 - 150 м по давлению ВПП.
После выполнения полетного задания первый тренируемый КВС покинул вертолет, а место командира ВС для продолжения тренировки занял второй КВС, после чего, в 01:15, был выполнен взлет по кругу с целью отработки посадки с одним задросселированным двигателем. При выполнении полета по кругу экипаж попал в ухудшившиеся метеоусловия, не сумел визуально определить место начала третьего разворота, начал его выполнение с запозданием, пролетев на 1600 м дальше расчетной точки начала разворота. В процессе разворота, на высоте 140 м относительно уровня земли (150 м относительно уровня ВПП2) и скорости 140 км/ч, в условиях ухудшенной видимости произошло столкновение ВС с вышкой широковещательной радиостанции (ШВРС), с последующим столкновением с землей. Вертолет разрушился и сгорел, экипаж и тренируемые КВС погибли.
Причиной катастрофы явилось столкновение вертолета Ми-8П RA-24640 с вышкой ШВРС на высоте 150 м при выполнении захода на посадку в условиях ухудшенной видимости из-за выпадения ливневых осадков в виде дождя и снега, что привело к разрушению конструкции ВС (воздушное судно) и его падению.
Авиационное происшествие явилось следствием непринятия экипажем своевременного решения о переходе на полет по ППП (правила полетов по приборам) при ухудшении метеоусловий и наборе безопасной высоты полета с целью исключения столкновения с искусственными препятствиями в районе посадочной площадки.
Столкновению ВС с вышкой ШВРС способствовало неиспользование экипажем возможностей СРППЗ (система раннего предупреждения приближения к земле) при выполнении полета по ППП.
Ответственность авиакомпании "Восток" застрахована в компании "Согаз", а пилотов - в "Сургутнефтегазе".
Власти Хабаровского края опубликовали список погибших. В нем значатся проверяющий Алексей Штанько, три командира экипажа - Дмитрий Макаров, Антон Ермаков и Виктор Посохов, бортмеханик Юрий Борода и второй пилот Игорь Ульянов.

 

Вертолет Ми-8 се разби в Хабаровск, шестимата на борда са загинали

 

11.04.2018, 01:18 UTC
Русия/ Хабаровск

Шест души загинаха при катастрофа на вертолет в гр. Хабаровск, Русия, 6 200 км източно от Москва. Ми-8ПС-9 (RA-24640) принадлежащ на авиокомпанията „Восток” катастрофира на 11 април 2018 година при изпълнение на тренировъчен полет за излитане, полет и кацане с един дроселиран двигател.
На борда е имало първоначално 7 души, но след изпълнение на упражнението първият обучаем е напуснал машината. На борда останали инструкторът - командир на екипажа, вторият пилот, бордовият механик и тримата обучаеми, които са също командири на екипажи от авиокомпанията. Метеорологичните условия са били изключително динамични с бързо изнасяща се към площадката за кацане ниска облачност, с усилващ се валеж на дъжд и сняг бързо понижаващи видимостта и вятър с пулсации до 14 м/сек. Инструкторът поисква разрешение за прекратяване на упражнението предвид обстановката от зам. командира на ае, но той се колебае да вземе решение и тръгва да съгласува предложението с диспечера. Тъй като обстановката все още позволявала излитане и полет по отношение на установените минимуми за района, инструкторът решава да предприеме ново излитане с втория обучаем, но за минути видимостта рязко се снижава до 1500 м и те пропускат да видят пътя ориентиращ ги обикновено в СМУ (сложни метеорологични условия) за заход към площадката за кацане. Започват захода със закъснение по кръга от 1600 м и попадат на жарето (вишката) с антената за радиоизлъчване. Обозначителните лампи на жарето са светели, казват очевидци. Видели са го в последния момент и с остър крен са се опитали да го избегнат, но безуспешно. Вертолетът се разбива и изгаря. Системата за ранно предупреждение за приближение със земята била включена, но с изключена функция за звуково предупреждение, вероятно поради това, че полетът е изпълняван на малка височина. Полетът до последно се е провеждал по правилата за визуален полет, а не за такъв по прибори. Миг нерешителност, миг подценяване на динамиката в обстановката е коствало живота на 5-ма от най-подготвените летци и борден механик на авиокомпанията.

Southwest Airlines flight 1380 air accident
 

Southwest Airlines flight 1380 air accident17.04.2018/ 11:03
US/ PA/ Philadelphia International Airport (KPHL)

 
On April 17, 2018, at 11:03 eastern daylight time, Southwest Airlines flight 1380, a Boeing 737-700, N772SW, experienced a failure of the left CFM International CFM-56-7B engine and loss of engine inlet and cowling during climb about flight level 320. Fragments from the engine inlet and cowling struck the wing and fuselage, resulting in a rapid depressurization after the loss of one passenger window. The No.13 fan blade had separated at the root. The flight crew conducted an emergency descent and diverted into Philadelphia International Airport (KPHL), Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Of the 144 passengers and five crewmembers onboard, one passenger (Jennifer Riordan, a mother of two) received fatal injuries (row 14 nr the window) and eight passengers received minor injuries. The airplane sustained substantial damage. The regularly scheduled domestic passenger flight was operating from LaGuardia Airport (KLGA), Queens, New York, to Dallas Love Field (KDAL), Dallas, Texas.
Three flight attendants were assigned to the flight, and an additional SWA employee was in a jumpseat in the cabin. During interviews, the flight attendants and the employee reported that they heard a loud sound and experienced vibration. The oxygen masks automatically deployed in the cabin. The flight attendants retrieved portable oxygen bottles and began moving through the cabin to calm passengers and assist them with their masks. As they moved toward the mid-cabin, they found the passenger in row 14 partially out of the window and attempted to pull her into the cabin. Two male passengers helped and were able to bring the passenger in.
During interviews, the flight crew stated the climbout from LaGuardia was normal with no indications of any problems; the first officer was the pilot flying and the captain was the pilot monitoring. They reported experiencing a sudden change in cabin pressure, aircraft yaw, cockpit alarms, and a “gray puff of smoke.” They donned their oxygen masks, and the first officer began a descent. Flight data recorder data showed that the left engine parameters all dropped simultaneously, vibration increased, and, within 5 seconds, the cabin altitude alert activated. The FDR also indicated that the airplane rolled left to about 40 degrees before the flight crew was able counter the roll with control inputs. The flight crew reported that the airplane exhibited handling difficulties throughout the remainder of the flight. The captain took over flying duties and the first officer began running emergency checklists. The captain requested a diversion from the air traffic controller; she first requested the nearest airport but quickly decided on Philadelphia. The controller provided vectors to the airport with no delay. The flight crew reported initial communications difficulties because of the loud sounds, distraction, and wearing masks, but, as the airplane descended, the communications improved. The captain initially was planning on a long final approach to make sure they completed all the checklists, but when they learned of the passenger injuries, she decided to shorten the approach and expedite landing.
The NTSB materials group is working to estimate the number of cycles associated with fatigue crack initiation and propagation in the No. 13 fan blade and to evaluate the effectiveness of inspection methods used to detect these cracks.
Passengers praise Southwest Airlines pilot who safely landed plane after one of its engines blew out. Pilot Tammie Jo Shults was one of the first women to fly a fighter jet for the U.S., and passengers on the stricken Southwest flight called her a hero.

9 Killed in Military Plane Crash in Georgia

02.05.2018/ 11:27 hours local time (L)
US/ GA/ 2 km NE of Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV)
USAF AIB Final report
The Lockheed WC-130H Hercules transport plane (tail number 65-0968) was destroyed when it impacted Augusta Road (Highway 21) and burst into flames shortly after takeoff from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, Georgia, USA. All nine occupants suffered fatal injuries. The aircraft was attached to the Puerto Rico Air National Guard, 156th Airlift Wing (156 AW) and had been undergoing routine maintenance in Savannah before heading to the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) at Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona. The aircraft had been at Savannah for almost a month, since 9 April 2018, to undergo prescheduled fuel cell maintenance and unscheduled work on engine number one by 156 AW maintenance personnel using the facilities of the 165th Airlift Wing.

 


During takeoff roll, engine no.1 RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) fluctuated and did not provide normal RPM when the captain advanced the throttle lever into the flight range for takeoff. Approximately eight seconds prior to aircraft rotation, engine no.1 RPM and torque significantly decayed, which substantially lowered thrust. The fluctuation on roll and significant performance decay went unrecognized by the crew until rotation, when the captain commented on aircraft control challenges and the aircraft veered left and nearly departed the runway into the grass before it achieved flight.
As the crew retracted the landing gear, they identified the engine no.1 RPM and torque malfunction and the captain called for engine shutdown. However, the crew failed to complete the Takeoff Continued After Engine Failure procedure, the Engine Shutdown procedure, and the After Takeoff checklist as directed by the Flight Manual, and the aircraft's flaps remained at 50 percent. Additionally, the captain banked left into the inoperative engine, continued to climb, and varied left and right rudder inputs. At an altitude of approximately 900 feet mean sea level and 131 knots indicated air speed, the captain input over nine degrees of left rudder, the aircraft skidded left, the left wing stalled, and the aircraft departed controlled flight and impacted the terrain on Georgia State Highway 21.
USAF AIB concluded, that the causes of the mishap were:

  • Mishap Pilot 1 - MP1’s improper application of left rudder, which resulted in a subsequent skid below three-engine minimum controllable airspeed, a left-wing stall, and the MA’s departure from controlled flight.

  • Additionally, the Mishap Crew - MC’s failure to adequately prepare for emergency actions, the MC’s failure to reject the takeoff, the MC’s failure to properly execute appropriate after takeoff and engine shutdown checklists and procedures, and the Mishap Maintainers’ failure to properly diagnose and repair engine number one substantially contributed to the mishap.


The list of names released by the Puerto Rico National Guard noted that all nine onboard had several years - and for some, decades - of experience in the service.

1.Maj. Jose R. Roman Rosado, pilot
Rosado had 18 years of service in the National Guard. He is survived by his wife and two sons.
2.Maj. Carlos Pérez Serra, navigator
Serra had 23 years of service. He is survived by his wife, two sons and a daughter.
3.1st Lt. David Albandoz, co-pilot
Albondoz, a Puerto Rican native who had been living in Alabama before the crash, had 16 years of service. He is survived by his wife and daughter.
4.Senior Master Sgt. Jan Paravisini, mechanic
Paravisini had 21 years of service in the National Guard. He is survived by two daughters and son.
5.Master Sgt. Jean Audriffred
Audriffred had 16 years of service prior to the crash and is survived by his wife and two sons.
6.Master Sgt. Mario Brana, flight engineer
Brana had 17 years of service in the National Guard. He is survived by his mother and daughter.
7.Master Sgt. Víctor Colon
Colón had 22 years of service before the crash. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.
8.Master Sgt. Eric Circuns, loadmaster
Circuns had 31 years of service to his name and is survived by his wife, two step-daughters and son.

България/ летателна площадка Казанлък

AAIU Окончателен доклад

  

Самолет, Ikarus C42B, регистрационни знаци LZ-AGR, експлоатиран от „Авиотех“ ООД, участва в провеждане на демонстрационни полети на летателна площадка Казанлък. След неуспешно кацане, при опит за преминаване на втори кръг, самолетът се срива и пада в дере, непосредствено до източния край на пистата за излитане и кацане. Самолетът е разрушен. Пилотът и двама пътника, намиращи се на борда са невредими.

Комисията за разследване във връзка с безопасността сочи като причина за реализиране на авиационното произшествие: Несъобразяване с основни експлоатационни характеристики на самолета и допуснати грешки в технологията на пилотиране от пилота на самолета.

Селскостопански самолет се преобърна в оризищеСелскостопански самолет се преобърна в оризище
 

06.07.2018
България/ между Пловдив и Пазарджик

  

Селскостопански самолет PZL M-18 Dromader с рег. знак LZ-8012 извърши принудително кацане и се преобърна в оризище на границата на Пловдивска и Пазарджишка области. Пилотът Йосиф Карамфилов, на 67 г., има 40-годишен стаж, бил е сам и няма тежки наранявания. Машината паднала на около 500 метра от магистрала „Тракия” , в близост до 107-ия километър. Двигателят отказал. Уменията на пилота са предотвратили разбиване на самолета на пътното платно.

Самолетът се приземил в полето, но заради меката почва машината се е преобърнала. В помощ на пилота се притекъл случаен очевидец на инцидента. Не е имало възпламеняване на машината. Самолетът се насочвал за кацане на летището край Цалапица след привършване на пръскане на посеви. Машината е на 40 години. Води се разследване за изясняване на причините довели до инцидента.

По информация на plovdiv24.bg пилотът споделил, че двигателят отказал поради свършване на горивото.

LZ-8012 извършил аварийно кацане и на летище Г. Оряховица на 27.01.2009 г. заради изпаднало по време на полет ляво колело. Тогава нямало пострадали.

A small plane crashed in Brazil, 4 dead27.07.2018
Brazil/ Para/ Sao Felix do Xingu/ Barra Mansa

 
A Cessna 210L Centurion plane (PP-MMR) departed Ourilandia do Norte airport, about 900 kilometers from the capital Belem, around 1.30 am Friday and crashed in the community of Barra Mansa, in Sao Felix do Xingu, southeast of Para. Five people were in the aircraft.
Three people died in the accident - Victor Gabriel Tomaz (10 year-old), Evandro Geraldo Rocha Reis (73) and Jose Goncalves de Oliveira (72). Information indicates that the pilot attempted an emergency landing after an engine failure. Illegal flight: According to the Brazilian Aeronautical Registry, the aircraft had the certificate of airworthiness expired since August of last year and, therefore, had no authorization to fly. Initially the pilot Cristiano Rocha and a passenger Robson Cintra survived the crash of the plane, but later Cristiano Felipe Rocha Reis died on 30.08.2018 at the Governor Otavio Lage Emergency Hospital in Siqueira (Hugol), in Goiania. Several people lamented his death on social networks, including singer Rodolffo, the duo with Israel, who was his friend.

 

Tourist plane crash kills four in ValaisTourist plane crash kills four in Valais

Switzerland/ Swiss canton of Valais/ Durand Glacier/ d'Anniviers

 
On Friday afternoon, a small tourist Robin DR 400/180 aircraft (HB-KEE) belonged to the Sion Motor Flight Group crashed near the summit of the Durand Glacier in the southwestern Swiss canton of Valais, killing the pilot and three passengers on board. The plane took off from Sion for a sightseeing flight then crashed under unknown circumstances at 3350 meter altitude. The spot is about 150 meters below the Durand Pass. The aircraft was equipped with a beacon, and after the crash, an alert was sent to Swiss air rescue service Rega in Zurich. Rega notified the helicopter rescue service of Air Zermatt, but rescuers could do nothing upon arriving at the scene. All
four occupants died in the crash, the pilot (54 year-old), his son (21), Vaud nationals domiciled in Valais, and a mother (59) of Denmark and her boy (20), residents of Denmark. In August 2016, the plane had to land urgently due to an alarming smoke release.

DR Congo/ Kasai province/ 3 kilometres (2 miles) from Kamako

 
The piston-engined Antonov 2R (9S-GFS), operated by local airline Air Kasai, burst into flames after crashing just after takeoff from Kamako for a 90-mile (150-kilometer) flight to Tshikapa, located near the border with Angola. The plane was on its way to Kabungu on the Angolan border. The An-2R developed engine trouble shortly after takeoff. The pilot looked for a place to land, but the problem got worse and worse. As the plane lost altitude, smoke filled the cabin and the pilot emerge from the cockpit.
‘Follow the pilot!,’ said loudly the pilot, then opened an exit and jumped out. A passenger succeeded also to jump out. The pilot and Pius Kabadi Tshiombe, a 53-year-old Congolese lay evangelist who also works as a diamond dealer, were injured, but survived the crash. The plane crashed into the brush three kilometres (two miles) from Kamako. On board were 7 people,
5 passengers burned to death. Among them are the conveyor Isaac, a certain Top 13 boss, a lady Chantal who came from Angola with her children, a worker from the Baudouin fund transfer agency and a trafficker from the square. The Tshiombe’s wife was unable to speak with her husband for three days, but his first words by phone were filled with praise to God. “I will never leave this God,” he told her. “He is wonderful!”

Plane crashes in Mexico, but miraculously all survivePlane crashes in Mexico, but miraculously all survive
 

31.07.2018/ 20:22 UTC
Durango-Guadalupe Victoria Airport (DGO)

 
Aeromеxico Flight SLI2431 operated by an Aeromеxico Connect Embraer ERJ-190 (XA-GAL) impacted airport terrain shortly after commencing takeoff from runway 03 at Guadalupe Victoria International Airport (MMDO), Durango, and a post-impact fire ensued. All 105 occupants survived but some of them suffered injuries that required hospitalization. On Wednesday morning, the airline tweeted that 64 people who were admitted to local hospitals following the crash have since been discharged.
The aircraft arrived at Durango from Mexico City as flight 2430 at 14:11 hours local time, 23 minutes ahead of schedule. As the ERJ-190 was prepared for the return flight there was a broken layer of cumulonimbus clouds at 2500 feet. Airport weather information shows that a thunderstorm had developed by 15:18 hours local time and the temperature had dropped from 28°C to 20°C over the previous hour.
On board flight SLI2431 were two flight crew members, an observer, three cabin crew members and 99 passengers. The aircraft commenced the takeoff roll on runway 03 at 15:22 hours local time (planned departure time was 15:09 hours).
During the takeoff roll there were notable variations in airspeed and wind direction. At 15:22:42 hours, the aircraft was accelerating through airspeed of 146 knots. Wind at that time was 47 degrees (from the right-hand side) at 33 knots. Eight seconds later the aircraft had rotated and was climbing through 8 feet radio altitude at airspeed of 145 knots. By that time the wind had shifted to a crosswind: 103 degrees at 11 knots. The aircraft reached a highest altitude of about 30 feet. At 15:22:56 hours, the aircraft had descended to 19 feet and was caught in a 22-knot tailwind of 30 degrees.
The aircraft then hit the ground to the left of the runway, left wing first. Both engines broke away during the subsequent ground slide. The aircraft came to rest about 380 meters past the runway threshold and 320 meters past the paved end of the runway, slightly to the left of the extended centerline. The length of runway 03 is 2900 m (9514 ft).
On Sep 5th 2018 Mexico's DGAC reported in a press conference first results into the investigation. There were three flight crew on the flight deck, a first officer in training was pilot flying in the right hand seat. The takeoff run began in a head wind scenario, which quickly changed into a strong right crosswind and ultimately a strong tail wind as result of a microburst. The investigation so far has not found any technical (both engines were operating normally until being separated from the wing) or human factors issue contributing to the accident. With the flight data, confirmed by meteorologists, simulator tests were conducted, no flight crew was able to get through the scenario with a different outcome. However, the training of the first officer under training had not been authorized and was not carried out according to the required protocols. Although this is not the cause of the accident, it will cause administrative response by the DGAC to establish the responsibilities and apply according sanctions.

A Socata TB-10 Tobago plane (HB-EZW) crashed Saturday into a forest in central Switzerland, killing a local family of four, 2 adults and 2 children, who had just taken off from Kaegiswil (LSPG) to Basel (LFSB). The aircraft went down Saturday morning near the town of Hergiswil, which is on Lake Lucerne at the foot of Mount Pilatus. Authorities had to send up a helicopter to extinguish the resulting fire before rescue workers could get to the scene. There was no immediate word on the possible cause of the crash, which was under investigation by Swiss authorities.
This plane was a machine of the Pilatus aircraft group, which had been used almost exclusively by employees of the Pilatus aircraft factory. The deceased pilot is the chief pilot of the Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Reto Aeschlimann, the other three victims are his wife and their two children (13 and 15-year-old). Pilatus CEO Oscar Schwenk stated his condolences and that this accident will have an impact on the further testing in the PC-24 program, as the chief pilot was strongly involved in it.

Кугър скъса жици на електропровод край Септември
 

Военен хеликоптер „Кугър” скъса жици на електропровод край с. Цалапица21.08.2018/ 15:25 UTC
България/ Септември

 
Военен хеликоптер „Кугър” с регистрационни знаци 710 скъса жици на електропровод край с. Цалапица. Няма пострадали при инцидента. Инцидентът е станал около 18.25 часа м. вр. на 21 август 2018 г. край село Цалапица по време на тренировъчен полет за медицинска евакуация с вертолет от състава на 24-та авиобаза в Крумово.
По време на полета се наложила рязка маневра, за да се избегне ято птици, при която машината е закачила жици на електропровод. Домакинства от град Септември са останали за часове без ток и вода.
Тричленният екипаж е приземил вертолета на летището край с. Цалапица. При огледа за щети се е наложило да бъдат свалени витлата му, а вертолетът да бъде превозен с наземен транспорт до летището в Крумоно, където да бъде отремонтиран. Така от наличните 12 Кугъра във Военновъздушните сили на България остават едва пет изправни. Нальотът на летците е повече от жалък - по 4 часа годишно за някои от тях, споделя в интервю командирът на авиобазата в Крумово. По случая се води разследване от Служба „Военна полиция“.

 

Малък самолет катастрофира край Шумен
 

Piper PA-44-180, LZ-BCW22.08.2018/ около 16:00 UTC
България/ край Шумен

 
Частен двумоторен самолет Piper PA-44-180 с регистрационни знаци LZ-BCW и сериен номер 44-8195008 извършил принудително кацане в овощна градина северно от Шумен около 19 часа местно време. Сигналът за инцидента е постъпил в ОДМВР и оперативния център на пожарната в 19:20. На борда имало двама души, по неофициална информация баща (Валери Димитров на 62 години) и син (Александър Димитров на 27 години). Според някои източници и двамата са правоспособни пилоти и дори инструктори. По време на инцидента вятърът бил гръбен. Машината прелетяла две трети от пистата, но не успяла да кацне. Пилотът решил да мине на втори кръг. В този момент самолетът пропаднал вероятно заради скоростния срив. При приземяването се ударил в дърво и повредил един от резервоарите, от който започнало изтичане на гориво. Двамата мъже били настанени в шокова зала на МБАЛ Шумен за оказване на медицинска помощ.

Дни след катастрофата 62-годишният пилот починал в резултат на получените наранявания. Директорът на болницата в Шумен споделя, че същият до последно е бил на апаратно дишане, с множество наранявания и тежка травма на белия дроб.
Разследващите органи работят по версиите за човешка грешка, техническа повреда или лоши метеорологични условия. Най-вероятната от тях е появата на внезапен силен вятър.
Piper PA-44-180 е лек двумоторен самолет на американската компания Piper Aircraft. Машината паднала край Шумен е модел 1980 година и закупена от САЩ през 2018 година от първия ѝ собственик, германец. Самолетът се управлява от един пилот и има места за трима пасажери.

Малък самолет се разби при кацане в Балчик, пилотът загина24.08.2018/ 16:08 UTC
България/ летище Балчик (LBWB)

  
Към 17,45 ч м. вр. в петък самолет Cirrus SR22-G3, с регистрационни знаци LZ-SEV, излита от летище Лесново. Лети на височина 3100 метра, след което преминава през въздушното пространство на летище Варна и в 18,54 часа е предаден за кацане на летище Балчик. Пилотът потвърждава, че е осъществил контакт с летище Балчик и се насочва за кацане. Самолетът се приземява твърдо, подскача, преобръща се през крило и уврежда. Не се запалва. Според очевидци подходът бил с висока скорост, но бордовите прибори са разбити и е трудно да се каже с каква скорост се е приземил. Вятърът бил към 2-3 метра в секунда, страничен и леко пулсиращ, но според разследващите, не той е причина за преобръщането.
Пилотът Севдалин Вълнаров, единствен на борда, загива при катастрофата. Същият е роден през 1966 година, завършва Математическа гимназия в Русе, след това ВНВТУ “Тодор Каблешков”, специалност “Транспортно строителство” и има квалификация Строителен инженер. От 1989 год. до 1997 год. е офицер във войските на Министерство на транспорта. От 1998 год. до събитието е бил собственик и управител на Рубикон инженеринг ООД, с предмет на дейност консултански услуги и строителен надзор. Основната реализация на фирмата е в Железопътната инфраструктура. Бил е председател на Българската асоциация на консултантските фирми в железопътното строителство. Според някои медии има общ нальот от около 60 часа. Закупува самолета със съдружник и им е доставен от Испания на 02.08.2018. Cirrus SR22-G3 е с един двигател, 4-и местен, подобрена версия, която съгласно извършените тестове дава възможност за приземяване, дори при не особено прецизен подход. Ще добавим само, че летище Балчик има особености, които внасят допълнително напрежение при кацане дори при опитни летци. Разследването на катастрофата продължава.

Micronesia air crash turns fatal as passenger's body foundPlane crashes into Chuuk lagoon
 

28.09.2018/ 10:10 LT
Micronasia/ Chuuk/Weno International Airport (TKK)

 
A Boeing 737-800 (P2-PXE) operated by Air Niugini came to rest in a lagoon during an attempted landing at Chuuk International Airport in Micronesia. The aircraft landed in the water about 145 metres off shore from the runway 04 threshold.

On board were 47 occupants. Eight people were hospitalized. All the patients were males with head injuries, spinal cord injuries and hip fractures. One passenger was reported missing. His body was found by divers on October 1.
Flight PX73 flies from Tokyo's Narita International Airport to Papua New Guinea's capital, Port Moresby, via Pohnpei and Chuuk. The aircraft was approaching TKK in rain with Cumulonimbus clouds moving at 800-1000 feet over the airport. Air Niugini released a statement on the crash and said the weather was poor with heavy rain and reduced visibility at the time of the incident. After the aircraft came to rest, local boats and some United States Navy divers went to the scene to rescue the occupants.

Pilot error led to an airliner ditching in a Pacific lagoon last year, forcing passengers and crew to swim for their lives, an official crash investigation released on 18 July 2019 found.
A Papua New Guinea Accident Investigation Commission (AIC) report into the September 28 crash found the pilot and co-pilot ignored numerous automated warnings while approaching the runway.
It said the pair missed "pull up" warning lights and continued the landing attempt at Chuuk International Airport, even after bad weather made them lose sight of the runway.
"Both pilots were fixated on cues associated with control inputs for the landing approach, and subsequently were not situationally aware," AIC chief commissioner Hubert Namani said.
A transcript revealed the dramatic final seconds in the cockpit before the crash.
"(The) co-pilot called rapidly with high intonation: 'Too low! We're too low! We're too low! We're too low!" it said.
The report said the man who died was not wearing a seatbelt and suffered blunt trauma injuries to his head, which probably killed him minutes after the crash.
It said Air Niugini had agreed to a number of changes, including increased training for crews flying to Chuuk and tighter restrictions on landing requirements at the airport.

Afghan army helicopter crash kills 25, including a top commander

 

31.10.2018/ 09:10 (04:40 GMT)
Afghanistan/ western Farah province

 

An army helicopter crashed in southwestern Afghanistan on Wednesday, killing all 25 people on board, including a top commander and the head of the provincial council key in fighting off a Taliban attack in May, officials said. The copter was carrying two pilots and 23 passengers.
Taliban insurgents fighting the Western-backed government said they shot it down.
Two army helicopters were on their way from Anar Dara, Farah province capital, to neighboring Herat when one lost control in low visibility and crashed into a mountain. Among the passengers were Nematullah Khalil, deputy army corps commander for the western region, and Farid Bakhtawar, the outspoken head of Farah's provincial council. The other victims, apart from the crew, were soldiers and council members.
Bakhtawar was a major figure in battling the Taliban in the battle for the city of Farah which the militants besieged and threatened to take over in May. The Taliban are seeking to remove the government and reimpose strict Islamic law after their ouster by U.S.-led forces in 2001.
