|Авиокатастрофа в Судан
отне живота на 32-ма
19.08.2012/ 04:45 GMT
Судан/ щтат Южен Кордофан/ Талоди
Пътнически самолет Ан-26 (ST-ARL) на авиокомпанията Алфа Еърлайнс се разби при втори заход за кацане в хълмистия район край Талоди, южната част на Судан. На борда е имало 26 пътници – държавна делегация, сред които трима министри (на религията и даренията, на младежта и спорта, на туризма), висши офицери, политици и представители на медиите, както и 6-членен екипаж. Няма оцелели. Командир на екипажа бил руския пилот Г.В.Семьонов, втори пилот суданец, бордови щурман таджик и борден инженер арменец. Въпреки завидния си летателен опит екипажът изпаднал в крайно сложна ситуация поради разразилата се пясъчна буря край летището. Минавайки на втори заход самолетът се блъснал в хълм край Талоди и взривил. Всички на борда загинали. Въпреки, че самолетът бил произведен преди около 35 г., според менаджерите на авиокомпанията бил надлежно обезопасен с МТО радар, системи за предупреждение за приближение с терена и избягване на сблъсък с въздухоплавателни средства при полет. Преминал и задължителните регламентни работи по техническата подръжка, така че със сигурност бил изправен. Тогава какво се е объркало, питат се всички?! Делегацията пристигала по повод празника Ид ал-Фитр (Рамазан Байрам), отбелязващ края на свещения месец Рамадан. Повлияло ли е очакването от високопоставените членове на делегацията въпреки очевидните условия под минимума да се кацне заради мероприятието. Обективният контрол показва на разследващите, че екипажът настоятелно е търсил диспечерите от контролната кула минути преди катастрофата, но така и не получил отговор. Защо!? В съзнанието отекват последните думи на екипажа „Талоди ...Талоди... Талоди..”.
Последствие от катастрофата е подадената оставка от министъра на гражданското въздухоплаване в Судан.

|Plane crashed in Sudan,
19.08.2012/ 04:45 GMT
Sudan/ South Kordofan state/Talodi
An Antonov An-26, belonging to Alfa Airlines, crashed in an accident near Talodi airport, killing 32 people including six high ranking Sudanese government officials, military personnel, politician, 5 media representatives and 6 crew-members.
The aircraft went down into a mountain near the airport due to limited visibility caused by a dust storm.
"Russian pilot Gennady Semyonov was commander of the aircraft," said Yuri Vidakas, First Secretary of the Russian Embassy in Khartoum.
The crew of the Russian-made plane included Armenian and Tajik nationals.
All people on board were killed.
The ministerial delegation was heading to Talodi, 650 km southwest of Khartoum, to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr festival marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan with the Sudanese soldiers mobilised to fight a rebellion in South Kordofan.
Europe bans all Sudanese airlines, including Alfa, for safety reasons.
The doomed aircraft, a propeller-driven Antonov An-26, (ST-ARL), was about 35 years old but had passed mandatory maintenance checks, the managers said.
The crashed aircraft carried safety gear including weather radar, a Traffic Collision Avoidance System and Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System.
The new company Alfa was formed in 2008 to replace a firm called Ababeel.
|Robredo, 2 others missing after plane crash in Philippines
18.08.2012/ about 09:00 GMT
Philippines/ Masbate - Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo called his wife Maria Leonor “Leni” Gerona Robredo at about 4:30 p.m. Saturday to say that the plane flying him from Cebu to Camarines Sur was having engine problems.
Leni, a lawyer, made this confirmation, adding that the call was immediately cut off and there was no contact with Robredo after that.

The private aircraft was heading for Naga City, Robredo’s hometown, from Cebu when one of the pilots sent a distress call to the Masbate Airport, requesting permission for an emergency landing. That was the last contact with Robredo’s plane.
