|Товарен самолет се разби
край Кабул, 8 загинали

Афганистан/ 25 км СИ от Кабул
Товарен самолет Hercules L-100-20 на базираната в ОАЕ Transafrik International се разби в планината Мурварид, на превала Махипар при подхода си за кацане на около 25 км северо-източно от Кабул, в близост до Пули-Чархи- предградие на столицата. Самолетът, с регистрационен номер 5X-TUC и нает от National Air Cargo, изпълнявал полет MUA-662 от авиобазата в Баграм за Кабул превозвайки товари за коалиционните войски в Афганистан. Според очевидец самолетът се е възпламенил при удара. След такива удар и експлозия е трудно да се определят броя на жертвите изхождайки от останките им, но доминира версията, че на борда е имало 8 души, въпреки че началникът на летището в Кабул е споменал пред медиите за 9. Потвърдено е за 6 филипинци на борда в състава на екипажа (в това число са двамата пилоти) както и за индиец и кениец. Няма оцелели.
Все още не се знаят причините за катастрофата, но според говорителя на афганистанското министерство на отбраната, а и според мнението на някои пилоти близостта на планинските формирования край Кабулското летище създава проблеми при навигацията и изпълнението на подхода за кацане.

near Kabul, 8 killed

Afghanistan/ near Kabul
A Transafrik International Hercules L-100-20 (civilian version of the C-130) on behalf of National Air Cargo, registration 5X-TUC performing freight flight MUA-662 from Bagram Air Base to Kabul (Afghanistan) with 8 crew and NATO supplies, impacted a mountain in the Pol-e Charkhi area about 6nm northeast of Kabul Airport around 19:50L (15:20 GMT) at approximately 1000 feet above aerodrome elevation and about 200 feet below the peak. All 8 people on board perished.
The Philippine embassy in Islamabad confirmed that six Filipinos perished in a cargo plane crash in Afghanistan. The Filipino fatalities include pilot Henry Bulos, co-pilot Rene Badilla, crew members Nilo Medina and Ibelo Valbuena. There were also two unidentified Filipinos, a certain Mr. Castillo (mechanic) and a certain Mr. Padora (avionics).
Along with the six Filipinos were an Indian and a Kenyan national. Both also perished in the crash.
Gen. Zahir Azimi, the Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman, said the plane went down near Pul-i-Charkhi, east of Kabul. The city lies in the middle of a circle of mountains, and when planes reduce altitude as they are coming in for a landing they run the risk of crashing into the surrounding peaks.
An eyewitness, Sibghatullah, who lives in the area, told Pajhwok Afghan News over the telephone that the plane burst into flames after crashing into mountains in the Mahipar pass near a police checkpost.
A joint Afghan-international security force is conducting a search and retrieval mission.

Peru/ Nazca Lines - A small plane carrying British tourists crashed near the famed Nazca Lines in Peru on Saturday, killing all six people on board, police said.
The victims were listed as four Britons — three men and a woman — and the pilot and co-pilot, both Peruvian.
The Cessna 185 plane, registered OB-1808 and operated by Air Nasca Travel, apparently had engine trouble that led it to crash in a field. Police were working to recover the bodies.
An official who answered the phone at the British Embassy in Lima declined to comment without authorization from London.
The Nazca Lines, mysterious geoglyphs etched into the desert centuries ago by indigenous groups, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Peru's leading tourist attractions.
Located about 240 miles (385 kilometers) southeast of Lima, the glyphs are only fully recognizable from the air, and 30-minute overflights are popular with travelers.
