|Ту-204 помете гора край
Домодедово, 8 ранени
21.03.2010//23:35 по Гринуич
Пътническият авиолайнер Ту-204-100 с бордови номер RA-64011 и собственост на компанията "Авиастар-ТУ" (Уляновск) се приземи драматично в гора на километър от летище Домодедово, Москва, Русия. Не се е стигнало до експлозия или пожар в резултат на катастрофата, вероятно поради малкото остатъчно гориво в края на полета, но уврежданията по самолета оставят впечатление, че е невъзможно възстановяването му. Подходът за кацане се е извършвал нощем, в условия на мъгла, ниска облачност - 60 м и променлива видимост в района на летището от 450-700 м.. Навигационните, светотехническите и свързочните средства са работили в щатен режим и от проведеното разследване до момента се смята, че те не могат да бъдат винени за произшествието. При диспечерите не е постъпвал доклад за някакви проблеми и аварийно кацане от страна на екипажа. Самолетът е изпълнявал полет TUP1906 от Хургада, Египет за Москва.
На борда не е имало пътници. Всички от 8-членният екипаж са пострадали, като 4-ма от тях са приети в болница. Двама от последните са в тежко, но стабилизирано състояние и преместени от болницата в Домодедово за по-нататъшно лечение в МОНИКИ, където разполагат с модерна апаратура за томография. Назначена е комисия за разследване на произшествието. Бордовите самописци са предадени в МАК (Межгосударственный авиационный комитет) за разшифроване.
Същият самолет само преди ден извършил аварийно кацане малко след излитане от Домодедово за Хургада поради задимяване в пилотската кабина, но специалисти считат, че няма връзка между двата инцидента.
Теоретично и чисто технически вероятно са прави, само дето дедите ни са имали някаква теория за предзнамението, към която съвременната наука остава глуха и низвергва само защото е безсилна да я обясни.

Принадлежащий "Авиастар-Ту" самолет Ту-204-100 (RA-64011) летел из Хургады в Москву и в понедельник в 2:35 сел в лесополосе в километре от взлетно-посадочной полосы Домодедово. Пострадали восемь членов экипажа. Четверо из них были госпитализированы в Домодедовскую районную больницу, остальные в госпитализации не нуждались. Состояние здоровья 52-летнего Сергея Горячего - бортинженера экипажа самолета Ту-204, стабильно тяжелое, но не угрожающее жизни. Он и 32-летний пилот Ту-204 Александр Косяков переведены на дальнейшее лечение в Москву. Во вторник из реанимации в общую палату домодедовской больницы были переведены еще двое пострадавших в аварии - бортпроводница Марина Кузнецова и второй пилот 36-летний Алексей Михайловский.
Ранее, в воскресенье, этот же самолет, выполняя рейс Москва-Хургада, вылетел из Домодедово в 4.00, долетел до Орла, однако затем экипаж почувствовал задымление в кабине и решил вернуться обратно в столичный аэропорт. В 06.00 самолет приземлился в Домодедово, а затем вылетел к месту назначения - в Хургаду.
Как сообщает Росавиация, при возвращении в Домодедово, самолет совершал заход на посадку в аэропорт в сложных метеоусловиях: нижний край облачности - высотой 60 метров, видимость на взлётно-посадочной полосе (ВПП) непостоянная - от 450 до 700 метров, но радиотехнические и светотехнические средства посадки аэропорта работали без замечаний.
"Несмотря на непростую метеорологическую обстановку и ограниченную видимость, заход на посадку выполнялся в штатном режиме. Экипаж и диспетчеры поддерживали радиосвязь в процессе всего полёта, в том числе при заходе на посадку. Экипаж самолета не сообщал о намерении совершить аварийную посадку или об отказах и неисправностях", - отмечается в сообщении Росавиации.
Приблизительно в 1 километре до ВПП, с самолетом пропала связь и борт исчез с экранов радиолокаторов, сообщает Росавиация. В результате поисков воздушное судно было обнаружено частично разрушенным в лесу с высотой деревьев 25-30 метров.
Для расследования всех обстоятельств и причин авиационного происшествия создана специальная комиссия из представителей Межгосударственного авиационного комитета и Росавиации.
Специалисты МАК уже приступили к расшифровке бортовых самописцев Ту-204-100, изъятых с места происшествия.
"По данному событию возбуждено уголовное дело о нарушениях правил безопасности движения воздушного транспорта, предусмотренное частью 1 статьей 263 Уголовного кодекса РФ", - отмечается в сообщении Росавиации.
Росавиация запретила "Авиастар-Ту" выполнять пассажирские перевозки с 22 марта 2010 года.
|Tu-204 crashes near
Domodedovo Airport, 8 Injured
A Tu-204-100 passenger jet, registered RA-64011, crashed into a forest near Domodedovo Airport on its approach early Monday, injuring all eight crew members onboard.
The plane, operated by state-controlled airline Aviastar-TU, had made an emergency landing at Domodedovo Airport a day earlier after smoke filled the cabin shortly after takeoff, but crash investigators downplayed any link between the incident and Monday's crash. The smoke was caused by a failure of the cabin's heating system.
The Federal Air Transportation Service, grounded all Aviastar-TU flights pending the outcome of an investigation.
Investigators said they believed that the crash had been caused by a violation of air traffic safety regulations, possibly by the pilots or the airline.
The crash was the first of a Tu-204, Russia's most modern passenger jet.
The plane was returning to Moscow empty performing flight TUP1906 after delivering 210 passengers to the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Hurgada.
The plane crashed in heavy fog at 2:35 a.m.
All eight crew members were hospitalized, including two in serious condition.
The airline is affiliated with aircraft maker Aviastar SP, based in Ulyanovsk, which builds the Tu-204.
While the crash was the first for a Tu-204, the aircraft have experienced numerous minor glitches in the past that could have easily led to tragedy, said Roman Gusarov, editor of the Avia.ru aviation news portal.
He said many aircraft systems in the Tu-204, which was designed in 1989 and launched in serial production in 1994, are underdeveloped.
Konstantin Teterin, general director of privately owned Red Wings, Russia's largest Tu-204 operator with nine of the aircraft, told Business FM radio station that most of the Tu-204's problems were related to the low quality of spare parts for the jet's engines.
“Spare parts for the Tu-204 are terribly expensive. They cost several times more than similar ones for Boeing or Airbus,” he said.
|Ми-8 се разби в Казахстан,
11.03.2010 - Вертолетът излетял в 14:05 м. вр. .от село Маканчи, Урджарски район в Източно-Казахстанска област. На борда му са се намирали освен 3-членния екипаж, 2 медички, кметовете на селските райони на Маканчи и Благодарствено и юноша на 17 години със симптоми за апандесит. Вертолетът бил с направление Карабут – Коктерек, но след загуба на радиосвръзка с диспечерите започнало енергичното му издирване с всички налични сили на местните спасителни служби, сътрудници на гранични войски, както и с помощта на други вертолети.
В 15:50 независимо от лошите метеорологични условия – мъгла, виелица и снегопад, останките му били открити пръснати на площ от 800 м, поради което малко прибързано се предполага, че вертолетът се е взривил още във въздуха.
Няма оцелели при катастрофата.
|Предварительная версия крушения вертолета в Восточном Казахстане – взрыв
11.03.2010 - Причиной аварии вертолета санитарной авиации, потерпевшего крушение при проведении спасательной операции в Восточно-Казахстанской области (ВКО), мог быть взрыв. Такова предварительная версия трагедии, озвученная заместителем начальника ДЧС региона Владимиром Власовым в пятницу на пресс-конференции.
"На это указывает площадь, на которую разлетелись осколки. Их находят в радиусе 800 метров. Живых нет", - рассказал В. Власов.
Обломки вертолета Ми-8 и фрагменты тел погибших были обнаружены между селом Каратал и селом Коктерек, в 5 км от автодороги Маканчи-Бахты.
В поисках пропавшего вертолета были задействованы погранвойска, полиция и спасатели Маканчийского сельского округа. В 15 часов 50 минут на борт диспетчеру от погранзаставы «Бахты» поступили приблизительные координаты обнаружения погибшего вертолета.
Спасатели ведут сбор фрагментов тел погибших и обломков вертолета. В областном акимате заверили, что семьям всех погибших будет оказана поддержка.
На борту находились 8 человек. Среди них 2 пилота Владимир Столбовский и Юрий Тюринков, борт-механик Сергей Барабанов, фельдшер Анжела Стрельник, врач-гинеколог Валентина Тюктяева, аким Маканчинского сельского округа Ерболат Сагинбеков, аким Благодарственного сельского округа Булат Ибраев и эвакуированный из Маканчи 17-летний юноша Куаныш Калиев.

|6 Chilean University Officials Killed in Plane Crash Surveying Quake Damage
Chile/Conception/Tome - Six Chilean university administrators on a disaster surveillance mission were killed on Monday at 16.00 local time (19. GMT) after their twin-engine aircraft crashed in a wooded area north of Concepci?n, the city near the epicenter of Saturday's devastating earthquake, according to university and news reports.
Three victims of the crash were high-ranking officials at the private University of San Sebastian, whose main campus is in Concepcion. They included Luis Ernesto Videla Berguecio, the university's vice rector of economic and administrative affairs; Marcelo Ruiz Perez, dean of the engineering faculty; and Pablo Desbordes Jimenez, the university's national director for student affairs.
Rodolfo Becker Barria, vice rector of administration and communications of the Ipege Professional Institute, a technical college affiliated with the university, as well as two other administrators at the college were also killed.
Mr. Desbordes was a former youth director of the opposition Independent Democratic Union party and brother of Mario Desbordes, the future under secretary for research in the government of President-elect Sebastian Pineda. Two of the other victims were founding members of the political party, which will form part of the governing coalition scheduled to take office on March 11.
The administrators took off from an airport outside the capital city of Santiago, about 250 miles north of Concepci?n, just after noon on Monday. They were on their way to survey the damage to the university's Concepcion campus and to provide assistance to its nearly 10,000 students and professors, the university said on Tuesday in a statement. San Sebastian, one of a raft of private universities founded in 1989, at the end of Chile's dictatorship, has five campuses throughout the country and offers degrees in more than 30 disciplines.
On Tuesday government aviation officials were still determining the cause of the crash. Ruiz Perez, a former executive at the Chilean airline LAN Chile, was piloting the Piper PA-31 Navajo airplane (CC-PGY) when it caught fire in the air and then nosedived into the ground, according to witness reports cited in El Mercurio, a newspaper. Bystanders rushed to put out the fire and pull out the bodies, the paper said. Saturday's 8.8-magnitude earthquake was the most devastating in Chile's recent history. Government officials raised the death toll to nearly 800 on Tuesday, with more than two million of Chile's 16 million people affected.
