Plane with 6 on board missing in Bahamas, official says

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

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
 

20.01.2018/ 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.
