Russian jumbo jet crashes,
no survivors


13.09.2008//23:13 GMT
Russia/ Perm

A Boeing 737-500 jet (VP-BKO) flown by OAO Aeroflot's Aeroflot Nord unit crashed in the central Russian city of Perm, killing all 88 passengers and crew.
Flight SU821, en route from Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport, crashed on its descent at 3:10 a.m. Moscow time, Aeroflot said in a press release. The 16-year-old plane lost radio contact at an altitude of 1,100 meters and was completely destroyed in the crash near a railroad.
The dead included 7 Azerbaijan citizens, 5 Ukrainians, and one passenger from France, the United States, Germany, Turkey, Italy and China , according to a list on the Emergency Situations Ministry's Web site. Colonel General Gennady Troshev, 61, former commander of Russian forces in Chechnya and adviser to former President Vladimir Putin, was among the dead.
The leased Boeing plane was built in 1992 and was formerly operated by Xiamen Airlines in China, Aeroflot said. Two flight recorders have been recovered from the wreckage.
President Dmitry Medvedev today expressed his condolences to the relatives and friends of the passengers and crew.
State-run Aeroflot is offering to take relatives to Perm later today on a charter flight, the carrier said in an e-mailed statement. The family of each victim will receive 2 million rubles ($78,000), Aeroflot said.
The flight data recorders have been found, and handed over to the Interstate Aviation Committee, which will decode it.
The pilot of a Russian airliner failed to follow controllers' instructions just before his jet crashed, killing 88 people, one controller has said.
Irek Bikbov, who was guiding the Boeing 737-500 as it prepared to land, said it climbed instead of dropping altitude and veered left, instead of right.
An eyewitness described how the plane had caught fire while still airborne and had hurtled downwards "like a falling comet."

Россия/Пермь

В 03.13 14.09.2008 г. при посадке в аэропорт в пригороде г. Пермь в районе железнодорожной линии, недалеко от пересечения улиц Смоленская 62 и Карпинского 68 потерпел катастрофу и загорелся самолет
БОИНГ-737-500 выполняющий рейс № SU821 Москва – Пермь (зарегистрирован на Бермудских островах, эксплуатировался ЗАО «Аэрофлот-Норд»).
На борту находилось
82 пассажира (75 взрослых, 6 детей и 1 младенец) и 6 членов экипажа (2 летчика и 4 бортпроводника).
По результатам представленных материалов по составу пассажиров на борту находилось 18 граждан иностранных государств, в т.ч. Азербайджана – 7, Украины – 5, по одному гражданину Китая, Турции, Италии, Германии, Франции и США.
В результате авиакатастрофы самолет полностью разрушен, повреждено около 50 метров железнодорожного полотна в четном направлении и 100 м в нечетном.
В районе аэропорта г. Пермь развернут пункт сбора родственников погибших, пункт психологической помощи, район ЧС оцеплен милицией, работает оперативно-следственная группа прокуратуры Пермского края.
В дворце культуры ГОСЗНАК (г. Пермь, ул Советской армии 4 а) работают психологи по оказанию помощи родственникам погибших.
Организована работа горячей линии. Телефоны горячей линии в г. Пермь: 8-342-245-24-24, 8-342-263-11-46.
В проведения поисковых работ найдено 2 самописца, которые переданы сотрудникам Прокуратуры Пермского края.
Неисправность двигателя не могла привести к крушению самолета в Перми. Об этом заявил сегодня авиаэксперт Олег Пантелеев.
По его словам, «на случай серьезной неисправности или возгорания авиадвигателя у экипажа есть четкие инструкции, согласно которым необходимо отключить неисправный двигатель». «В то же время, - продолжил эксперт, - конструкция самолета Boeing 737 обеспечивает выполнение безопасного полета и при одном работающем двигателе». «Таким образом, если
версия о возгорании двигателя верна, то можно предположить, что пожар затронул не только двигатель, но и другие жизненноважные системы самолета», - подчеркнул Пантелеев.
Отвечая на вопрос, почему самолет при посадке пошел на второй круг, эксперт сказал, что если экипаж не может обеспечить безопасную посадку, тогда самолет отправляют на второй круг. Однако, продолжил Пантелеев, точно понять, почему самолет был отправлен на второй круг, можно будет только после расшифровки бортовых самописцев.
Самолет заходил на посадку в условиях плохой видимости. Так называемый "нижний край" - высота облачности над землей - составлял всего 260 метров. Погодные условия в районе аэропорта Перми были очень плохие - там шел дождь.
По словам некоторых из очевидцев самолет был охвачен огнем и взорвался еще в воздухе.
Boeing 737-500 (VP-BKO),  разбившийся в воскресенье рано утром в районе города Пермь, ранее эксплуатировался китайской авиакомпанией Xiamen Airlines, сообщает компания «Аэрофлот».
Самолет, выпущенный в 1992 году, был взят в аренду на период с 28 июля 2008 года по 21 марта 2013 года. Лизингодатель - PINEWATCH LIMITED, офис которой находится в столице Ирландии - Дублине, говорится в пресс-релизе «Аэрофлота».
Компания "Аэрофлот" заявила о прекращении сотрудничества с "
Аэрофлотом-Норд", которому принадлежал разбившийся в Перми "Боинг".
"Все дальнейшие рейсы будут выполняться нашими авиакомпаниями раздельно", - сказал в воскресенье на брифинге глава "Аэрофлота" Валерий Окулов. Он сообщил, что компания отзывает торговую марку у своей дочерней компании - "Аэрофлот-Норд" уже с завтрашнего дня не может пользоваться брендом "Аэрофлот".
"Несмотря на то, что рейс выполнял экипаж "Аэрофлот-Норд", и вся ответственность лежит на них как на эксплуатанте, "Аэрофлот" оказывает всю необходимую помощь в расследовании данной авиакатастрофы", - сказал глава "Аэрофлота".
"Аэрофлот-Норд" создан в 2004 году и базируется в Архангельске. 51% акций компании принадлежит "Аэрофлоту", 49% - ООО "Авиаинвест".
Кроме того, "Аэрофлот" решил направить комиссию в другую свою дочернюю компанию, "Аэрофлот-Дон", для обследования парка воздушных судов этой компании. 100% акций этой компании принадлежит "Аэрофлоту".
В ДР Конго се разби самолет
на ООН, 17 загинали


01.09.2008/14:00 по Гринуич

Самолет
Beechcraft 1900C с бордови номер ZS-OLD на американската авиокомпания Air Serv и ползван под наем от южноафриканската компания CemAir катастрофира при подхождане за кацане на летището в Букаву, източната част на ДР Конго. Въздушното средство се разбило в труднодостъпен планински район на 15 км от летището. На борда е имало 15 пътници (канадец - член на UN Development Programme, индиец-служител на Офиса за координиране на хуманитарната помощ, французин и конгоанец от съседно Конго – работещи за базираната в Париж организация MSF – „Доктори без граница”, а останалите били граждани на ДР Конго – 4 работещи за UNDP, 3 служители на неправителствената организация Handicap International, 4 служители в парламента на страната) и двамата пилоти (южноафриканец на име Руди Кноетце и британец).  Самолетът изпълнявал полет по разписание от Киншаса за Мбандака, Кисангани, Букаву и Гома. По време на катастрофата в района видимостта била лоша и валял проливен дъжд. Предполага се, че това е една от вероятните причини за трагедията.
Буди недоумение и една друга подробност – в нареждането за полетите на CemAir за този ден по този маршрут е трябвало да лети другият лизингован Beechcraft 1900D с регистрационен номер 5Y-BSP, но той вероятно е поел по по-ранния по разписание с 1 час маршрут от Киншаса за Лубубмбаши, за който е бил назначен именно ZS-OLD.
Технически проблем възникнал в Beechcraft 1900C, който да се възстанови в рамките на този 1 час или друга причина са довели до промяната в последния момент!? Засега това са само догадки, а истинските причини довели до катастрофата предстои да изясни започналото разследване.
Все на борту самолета,
разбившегося в ДРК, погибли


01.09.2008//

Все 15 пассажиров и два члена экипажа самолета гуманитарной миссии ООН, разбившегося в горах Демократической республики Конго (ДРК), погибли.
Самолет пропал в понедельник во время шторма. Самолет американской организацией Air Serv,
Beechcraft-1900С (ZS-OLD),  совершал рейс из города Кисангани в Букаву, когда потерпел крушение из-за плохой видимости.
Вертолеты службы спасения обнаружили самолет, предназначенный для перевозки 19 пассажиров, во вторник утром в 15 километрах северо-западнее города Букаву, расположенного на восточной границе ДРК с Руандой.
Согласно копии декларации зарегистрированных пассажиров, на борту находились шесть иностранцев: француз, индиец, канадец, житель Конго, пилот Южной Африки Руди Кноетце и пилот Великобритании. Другие одиннадцать пассажиров были гражданами ДРК.
"Самолет нашли на крутом горном хребте. Воздушным судном управляли два пилота, на борту находились 15 пассажиров. Вертолеты службы спасения установили, что после крушения никому не удалось выжить".
Согласно декларации, на борту самолета находились представители голландской ветви международной благотворительной организации "Врачи без границ", Управления ООН по координации гуманитарных вопросов и Программы развития ООН.
Air Serv International - американская гуманитарная организация, создана в 1994 году.  Air Serv занимается оказанием помощи в строительстве национальной инфраструктуры африканских стран.
17 feared dead as aid plane
crashes in Congo


01.09.2008//

17 people were killed when a humanitarian aid flight crashed on a ridge in eastern Congo .
The
Beechcraft 1900C plane (reg. ZS-OLD), operated by CemAir under contract with Air Serv, was en route from Kisangani to Bukavu on Monday afternoon, September 1. The plane was on a flight from Kinshasa to Mbandaka, Kisangani and Bukavu when it crashed into a steep ridge. The aircraft departed Kisangani at 12:56 and the last known radio contact was made ten minutes inbound to Bukavu in heavy rain. The accident occurred on approach to the Bukavu airport. While the cause is as yet unknown, heavy rains may have been a factor.
The aircraft was found early Tuesday morning on a steep ridge eight miles northwest of Bukavu.
Recovery efforts are underway in search of the two crew members and 15 passengers on board.
The victims included a Canadian member of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), an Indian employed by the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Aid, a French national and a national of neighbouring Congo who worked for Paris-based Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF - Doctors Without Borders).
The others on the plane were all from the DRC.
According to the UN, four worked for the UNDP, three for the non-government organisation Handicap International and four were civil servants working in the DRC parliament.
Air Serv International - based in Warrenton, VA, USA - describes itself as a not-for-profit aviation organization that supports humanitarian programs worldwide.
No Air Serv personnel were involved in the crash.
The plane was being flown by a South African commercial company, Cem Air.
“I’ve cleared it with God. If something should happen to me … it should happen.”
These chilling words were the last that South African pilot Rudi Knoetze said to his grandmother after she warned him against returning to the Democratic Republic of Congo. The other pilot was a Briton.

03.09.2008*/16:20 GMT// United Arab Emirates/ off the coast of Dubai/ Maersk drilling rig - Helicopter strikes oil rig off Dubai coast; 7 dead

Seven people were killed as a helicopter crashed into an oil rig 70km off the coast of Dubai on Wednesday evening. Five bodies were recovered on Thursday while bodies of two are still untraceable. The Aerogulf  Bell 212 helicopter with two crew members and five passengers on board crashed around 8.20 pm during take-off from Dubai Petroleum’s Rashid oilfield rig, operated by Petrofac Ltd. It was on a routine flight to Dubai International Airport. The crash have taken place after the captain lost control of the helicopter during take-off and hit a crane on the oil rig. He lost balance, which led one of the rotors to hit a crane. The hit pushed the helicopter back, following which the captain lost complete control of the helicopter and hit the rig. Immediately afterwards, a fire broke out on the main deck of the drilling rig. However, it was promptly contained and extinguished. The fire centred around the remains of the helicopter on the deck. The pilot was believed to be British and the co-pilot Venezuelan. Both worked for Aerogulf. The five passengers, one American, one Pakistani, one Filipino and two Indians, worked for sub-contractors Petrofac and Maersk, according to Dubai Petroleum. Officials at the diplomatic missiions concerned were still waiting on Thursday evening for formal identification of the bodies.
Meanwhile, operations at the Rashid oilfield remained suspended since the accident on Wednesday night for security reasons.The oil rig produces nearly 1,500 barrels a day, according to Wood Mackenzie energy consultants. A team comprising representatives of the General Civil Aviation Authority, Dubai Police and Civil Defence, was carrying out investigations to ascertain the cause of the accident.

Боинг се разби в Перм,
88 загинали


13.09.2008//23:13 по Гринуич
Русия/Перм

Боинг 737-500 с бордови номер VP-BKO и принадлежащ на авиокомпанията Аерофлот-Норд изпълнявал по разписание полет SU821 от Шереметево, Москва за Перм, Русия, когато по неизяснени причини при заход за кацане на летището на дестинацията се разбил в предградията на Перм нанасяйки щети на Тран-Сибирската железопътна магистрала.
Загинали са всичките 88 души на борда, от които 82 пътници, в това число 6 деца и пеленаче, и 6 души екипаж в състав 2 пилоти и 4 стюардеси. Сред пътниците са и 18 чужденци, от които 7 азърбейджанци, 5 украинци и по един от Германия, Италия, Франция, Турция, САЩ и Китай.
Сред жертвите на катастрофата е генерал полковник Генади Трошев – бивш главнокомандващ на руските войски в Чечня, в определени периоди от кариерата му командващ на известната с бойния си опит 58 армия и съветник на бившия президент на Русия Вл. Путин.
Останките от самолета и жертвите са пръснати на голяма площ около железопътната линия.
На мястото на катастрофата работят спасителни екипи, представители на министерството на извънредните ситуации на Русия , органи на местната прокуратура, експерти на МАК, а мястото е отцепено от подразделения на ОМОН. Открити са и двата бордови самописци на самолета и предадени за дешифриране. Компанията Боинг е предложила помощта си за изясняване причините довели до трагедията. Създадени са центрове за предоставяне на информация относно катастрофата и оказване на психотерапевтична помощ на близките на жертвите. Авиокомпанията Аерофлот-Норд е обещала да обезщети близките на жертвите с приблизително по 78 000 $ за загинал при катастрофата.
Коментират се различни версии относно причините за катастрофата, но е твърде рано да се правят заключения преди да се проанализират данните от „черните кутии”. Противоречива е информацията от очевидците на произшествието, като някои от тях твърдят, че самолетът горял и дори се взривил още във въздуха. Тези твърдения насочват предварителното разследване към
проблем с един от двегателите, но дори и да се е запалил, едва ли това би било достатъчна причина за катастрофата, коментират експерти, тъй като Боингът е в състояние да се приземи благополучно и с един работещ двигател, освен ако пожарът не е засегнал и други жизненоважни системи свързани с управлението на въздушното средство.
Буди недоумение защо е имало на борда му толкова голям резерв от гориво.
Екипажът е трябвало да извърши приземяването
при сложни метеорологични условия нощем, на минимума - при облачност с долна граница 260 м и дъжд. Съмнения за грешка в техниката на пилотиране пораждат твърденията на диспечера за неразчетени и неадекватни действия на екипажа на лайнера спрямо инструкциите от контролната кула, което наложило минаването му на втори заход за кацане.
Поради случилото се авторитетната авиокомпания Аерофлот се отказва от по-нататъшно сътрудничество с Аерофлот-Норд и оттегля фирмената си марка от нея.
Взрени в разкъсаните и намачкани железопътни релси от мястото на катастрофата оставаме с болка и тъга за жертвите, с искрено съчувствие към  близките им и мъчителните въпроси за
предсказуемостта и коригируемостта на гибелните тенденции в човешката съдба.

DJ AM And Travis Barker Critically Injured In Private Plane Crash

The crash took place just before midnight on Friday and involved a twin-engine private Learjet-60 (reg. N999LJ), operated by Inter Travel And Services, with six passengers onboard, according to Lynne Douglas, public information officer for the Columbia Metro Airport. While taking off, the plane, which never left the ground, overran the runway, struck an antenna array and several lights, and began sending up sparks. It skidded off the end of the runway, through a perimeter fence separating the airfield from a nearby roadway, and then crossed the roadway, coming to a stop on an embankment. The plane caught fire on impact. Douglas said two passengers — who were later confirmed to be AM and Barker — escaped the aircraft while it was on the ground, while the other two passengers and two crew members died in the crash. An eye witness said, that he saw a fireball crossing the road near the airport and then realized it was a plane. He saw jet fuel shoot out across the roadway and then saw two men, who were both on fire, patting each other down to extinguish the flames.
Investigators look over the debris left by the Learjet that was carrying former Blink 182, drummer, Travis Barker, and Adam Goldstein, also know as DJ-AM, on the outskirts of the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, Saturday, Sept. 20, 2008, in Columbia, S.C. Barker and Goldstein were critically injured, and two other passengers and two crew members were killed. (AP Photo/Brett Flashnick)
20.09.2008*/Mozambique/Beira - Seven people are known to have died

when a light aircraft crashed in the central Mozambican city of Beira on Saturday. The plane crashed at about 15:00 local time in the area of the Palmeiras beach. Aircraft was on a flight from Rand Airport, Germiston, via Virginia Airport, Durban to Beira International Airport, Mozambique, where it was supposed to land at 14:36. The last contact between the aircraft and Beira Tower was at 14:42. The aircraft was observed flying up and down the coast, when it apparently ran out of fuel. Witnesses stated that one engine had apparently stopped. The aircraft attemped an emergency landing on the beach, but crashed in shallow water in the process. The report identified four of the victims as Louisa Suzana, Daniel Johane, Wilson Zao and Michel Paul who were aboard the Durban registered commercial Piper PA-34-220T Seneca III plane (reg.

18.09.2008 - Комиссия установила, что разбившийся 14 сентября в Перми "Боинг-737" вылетел из Москвы с отключенным автоматом тяги.

Пилот может по своему усмотрению выбрать режим поддержания скорости машины - передвигать рычаги управления режимом двигателей вручную или доверить управление автомату тяги, задав ему нужные параметры. В последнем случае рычаги будет перемещать уже бортовой компьютер самолета, поддерживая при этом требуемое значение скорости.

"Систему пришлось деактивировать из-за слишком большой "вилки" - до 30 градусов, появившейся в рычагах управления двигателями. Иначе говоря, поддерживать скорость в автоматическом режиме этот "Боинг" не мог. Не работала у него также и система TCAS, помогающая летчику "разойтись" со встречным самолетом в случае их опасного сближения, однако обе неисправности попали в разряд так называемых отложенных. Представители наземных служб посчитали, что лайнер с этими дефектами вполне может долететь до своего аэропорта базирования и устранить их там", - пишет газета.

Мог ли неработающий автомат тяги стать причиной катастрофы, в результате которой погибли 88 человек, специалистам пока не ясно.  Сегодня автомат тяги стал одним из главных подозреваемых в катастрофе.

По данным издания, накануне во все российские авиакомпании была разослана телефонограмма Росавиации, в которой руководителям авиапредприятий категорически запрещается "эксплуатация воздушных судов с неработающим автоматом тяги".
UN helicopter crashes in Darfur killing four crew members

29.09.2008 - A Mi-8 helicopter contracted to carry food aid for the UN African Union mission in Darfur crashed near Kalma Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp shortly after its takeoff from Nyala. It was owned by a Sudanese airliner Supreme Food Co, a catering company that supplies rations to the UN mission and hired by UNAMID. The helicopter had just left the airport in Nyala, the regional capital, when it crashed in a field of watermelon and sorghum.
All
four people on board, including the three Russian crew members, were killed. The fourth person was identified as a Sudanese member of the crew. Two of the crew members died at the scene while two other died of their wounds at the hospital later.
A witness, who lives in the nearby Kalma Camp for displaced people, said he saw the helicopter explode in midair. “There was a big noise,” he said through a translator. “After the sound, the helicopter divided into two. It was completely covered in fire in the sky, and then it crashed into the ground.” He did not hear gunshots before the helicopter crashed. UN police officers, who arrived first on the scene, claimed that they heard gunshots after the crash.
The rebels deny to shot at the helicopter. The UN peacekeeping mission in Darfur is still investigating the cause of the crash and investigators did not know whether the helicopter had been shot down.
