Китай/ Хейлунцзян/ Ичун/ летише Линду
Самолет ERJ-190 с бордови номер В-3130 на авиакомпанията Henan Airlines, изпълняващ полет VD8387 от Харбин се е разбил при кацане около 21:36 (16:36 българско вр.) в град Ичун в провинция Хейлунцзян в североизточен Китай. На борда са се намирали 91 пътника, включително 5 деца, и 5-те членове на екипажа. Загинали са 42, а за лечение са постъпили 54 ранени, основно с фрактури и външни наранявания.
Пътническият самолет катастрофирал при кацане в условия на слаба видимост на летището в град Ичун. По оценка на експертите, откритото през август миналата година летище Линду се явява "достатъчно сложно". Полосата му е разположена между два хълма, което създава крайно сложни метеорологически условия за кацане и излитане. Един от оцелелите споделя, че вероятно са попаднали в турбуленция, което довело до твърдото кацане. Повечето от оцелелите са се спасили преминавайки през образувал се отвор в предната част на фюзелажа, понеже не са успели да отворят аварийните изходи.
Изхождайки от публикувания спикък на загиналите, всички те са етнически китайци.
Сред оцелелите е и командира на екипажа Ци Цюанцзюн. Същият е с тежки наранявания.
Говорът на 40-годишния пилот е затруднен и затова все още не е дал показания.
Бордовите самописци са открити. На мястото на трагедията е изпратена група от специалисти на Управление гражданска авиация в Китай. Ръководител на разследването и ликвидиране на последствията от авиокатастрофата в Ичун е вице-премиерът на Китай Чжан Децзян.

Самолет ERJ-190 авиакомпании Henan Airlines, вылетевший рейсом VD8387 из аэропорта города Харбин в 20.45 по местному времени (16.45 мск), потерпел крушение около 21:36 (17:36 мск) в городе Ичунь в провинции Хэйлунцзян на северо-востоке Китая. Всего на борту находились 91 человек, включая 5 детей, и 5 членов экипажа. Погибли 42, а в лечебные учреждения уже поступило 54 раненых, в основном с переломами и наружными травмами.
Пассажирский самолет потерпел крушение при посадке в условиях плохой видимости в аэропорту города Ичунь. По оценкам экспертов, открытый в августе прошлого года аэропорт Линьду является "достаточно сложным". Аэропорт расположен между двумя холмами, что создает крайне сложные метеорологические условия для посадки и взлета.
Агентство Синьхуа опубликовало список погибших в авиакатастрофе в городе Ичунь пассажиров, имена свидетельствуют, что все жертвы катастрофы - китайцы.
В числе выживших - капитан самолета Ци Цюаньцзюнь. Он получил тяжелые травмы.
Речь 40-летнего пилота затруднена, поэтому, по данным Синьхуа, пока он не дает показаний.
Бортовые самописцы обнаружены. На место трагедии направлена группа специалистов управления гражданской авиации Китая. Руководит расследованием и ликвидацией последствий авиакатастрофы в Ичунь вице-премьер Китая Чжан Дэцзян, который специально направился в район трагедии.

China/ Heilongjiang/ Yichun/ Lindu Airport (ZYLD)
A Henan Airlines (former Kunpeng Airlines) Embraer ERJ-190, registration B-3130 performing flight VD-8387 from Harbin to Yichun (China) with 91 passengers and 5 crew, burst into flames after the aircraft overran the runway while landing in Yichun at 21:36L (13:36 UTC). 42 people perished, 3 people received serious injuries and 51 minor injuries.
There was heavy fog in the area at the time. One survivor told China Central Television the plane hit turbulence as it descended.
The crash and subsequent fire were so severe that little of the fuselage remained, though the charred tail was still largely intact.
The man said he and other passengers escaped through a hole near the front of the plane. "We were trying to open the (emergency exits) but they wouldn't open. Then the smoke came in ..."
Lindu airport located 9km (4.8nm) from the city center in the Yichun Forest , is capable to accept Airbus A320, Boeing 737 and similiar aircraft with a runway length of 2400 meters (7870 feet) and width of 45 meters (150 feet). The runway 12/30 features PAPIs for both ends, VOR/DME and NDB approaches are available for both ends.
The black-box of the crashed passenger plane is found. A 20-strong team of CAAC officials and technicians have reportedly already left for Yichun City to begin an investigation.

Canada/BC/15 km S of Lytton - Two pilots were confirmed dead Sunday in the crash of a Canadian waterbombing plane that was fighting a forest fire.
The wildfire and steep terrain kept rescue workers from reaching the crash site after the plane went down Saturday night about 100 miles northeast of Vancouver.
The Convair CV-580 Airtanker plane (C-FKFY), carrying two pilots, was chartered by the provincial government from Conair in Abbotsford, British Columbia, to battle wildfires about 11 miles south of Lytton. Conair had a second plane shadowing the one that crashed and was able to pinpoint the location of the site.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police confirmed the pilots' deaths, and said the plane was badly damaged after it crashed and burst into flames.

|Plane crashed in Alaska
US/AK/Dillingham/10 miles NW of Aleknagik - Former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens was killed in the crash of a private plane in Alaska. In an official press release, the NTSB on Tuesday confirmed that it had dispatched an emergency “go team” to investigate the crash of what apparently was a small corporate plane near Dillingham, Alaska, in which Stevens reportedly was involved. The NTSB said that the plane, a small single-engine propeller-driven De Havilland DHC-3T (N455A) crashed around 8 p.m. Alaska Summer Time about 10 miles northwest of Aleknagik, Alaska. The NTSB said it had received reports that 5 of the 9 persons on board died in the accident.
Among the survivors was former NASA chief Sean O'Keefe and his son, Kevin. The other survivors were Phillips' son Willy, 13, and lobbyist Jim Morhard of Alexandria, Va. The four survivors were transported to Providence Hospital in Anchorage with varying degrees of injuries.
Besides Stevens, Alaska State Troopers identified the victims as Dana Tindall, 48, of Anchorage, a senior vice president for the Alaska telecommunications company GCI; Tindall's daughter Corey, 16; Washington, D.C., lobbyist Bill Phillips, a former Stevens chief of staff; and the pilot, Terry Smith, 62, of Eagle River.
