Kenya Airways has lost cotact with a commercial airliner carrying 114 people that took off from Cameroon early Saturday. The last message was received in Douala after takeoff and thereafter the tower was unable to contact the plane. The Boeing 737-800 (reg. 5Y-KYA) was carrying 105 passengers, eight crew members and a flight engineer. The plane , relatively new aircraft -only six months old, is capable of carrying 189 passengers. The authority have no details what has happened to the aircraft. The flight (KQ 507) departed Douala at 12:05 a.m. and was to arrive in Nairobi at 6:15 a.m. The flight originated in Ivory Coast but stopped in Cameroon to pick up more passengers.There were reports of thunderstorms in the area around the time of takeoff overnight.
Officials said it was too early to tell what might have caused the plane to go down between 11 and 13 minutes after takeoff.
"Whatever happened must have happened very fast, which is usually a sign of catastrophic structutral failure," said Patrick Smith, a U.S. based-airline pilot and aviation commentator. " A plane never takes off into a thunderstorm, no crew or carrier would allow that. But it is remotely possible that the plane could have inadvertenly gone into some extremely turbulent air and suffered massive hail damage or a sudden structural failure."
On Sunday (06.05.2007) the wreckage of the plane was found in mangroves close to the airport, 20 km (12 miles) south of Douala. There were no survivers.
On Monday, rescuers battled through dense mangrove swamps to reach the wreckage, after parts of the jet were discovered from the local fishermen.
"I saw one body and one arm. We also saw some seats and a piece of plane about the size of a car door," resident Guiffo Gande told reporters in Mbanga Pongo village.
Kenya Airways have opened a crisis managment centres in Embakasi, in South Africa and in Douala.

Ранее утром в субботу диспетчерская служба авиакомпании Кения эйруэйз объявила об утрате радиоконтакта со своим пассажирским самолетом. Контролеры наземной службы аэропорта в Дуале успели получить сигнал бедствия перед тем, как самолет исчез с экранов радара. Известно, что кенийский Боинг 737-800 вылетел из Кот-д' Ивуара и совершил посадку в аэропорту камерунского города Дуала для приема на борт дополнительных пассажиров.Затем авиалайнер вылетел в столицу Кении Найроби в полночь-00:05.

Боинг 737-800 ( рег. № 5Y-KYA) на Кения Еъруейз изпълняващ полет КQ 507 по маршрута Абиджан (Кот- д' Ивуар)- Дуала(Камерун) - Найроби (Кения) катастрофира непосредствено след излитането си от летището в Дуала, при което загинаха 114 души на борда. След напрегнатото и изтощително 40 часово издирване на катастрофиралия самолет, останките му бяха открити благодарение на местни рибари само на 20 км от летището в Дуала в блатиста местност с мангрова гора. Минути след излитането му на котролната кула са получили сигнал за бедствие от него и връзката се е разпаднала. По това време в района валял проливен дъжд с гръмотевична буря..  Не се знаят причините за катастрофата към момента, но се предполага че самолетът е попаднал в зона на силна турбулентност, довела до внезапното му разпадане. Отломките са с големина не по-голяма от вратата на кола, а късове от тела и лични вещи има разпръснати на голяма площ.
Авиокомпанията е открила няколко кризисни центъра за събиране и уточняване на данните по катастрофата и предоставянето им на близките на жертвите и медиите.

A plane belonging to the multinational observer force that monitors the Egyptian-Israeli border has crashed in the Sinai peninsula, killing eight French soldiers and a Canadian. The aircraft had hit a truck while trying to make an emergency landing on a Sinai road, but managed to briefly regain altitude before finally crashing and exploding. Probably the crash of the twin-engined propeller plane was caused by mechanical problems, although the plane's black box had not yet been recovered. Foul play was
not suspected. Egyptian state news agency MENA said the pilot had called in to report a problem with one of the aircraft's engines before contact was lost.
The plane had been on a training and orientation mission. The Egyptian driver of the truck jumped from his vehicle as the plane hit it, and was believed to have survived although his truck caught fire and burned. All on the plane had died.
The French de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter plane had been heading from El Gorah in northern Sinai, site of the observer force's main base, to Saint Catherine in the south when it crashed near al-Nakhel in central Sinai.

Причиной крушения самолета
DHC-6 Twin Otter в Египте стало столкновение с грузовиком. Самолет во время полета задел крылом иорданский грузовик, следовавший по международной скоростной автотрассе Нувейба-Суэц.
По информации спасателей, обломки самолета разлетелись на расстояние до 10 километров от места аварии в горной местности в центральной части Синай-ского полуострова. Иорданский грузовик перевозивший стекло, полностью сгорел. Самолет летел из Эль-Гуры на севере полуострова в Сан-Катрин (Юг). На борту авиалайнера находились
девять человек, в том числе восемь граждан Франции и канадец, проходивших службу в международных миротворческих силах. По предвари-тельной информации, все девять человек погибли. Международные миротворческие силы на Синайском полуострове призваны контролировать выполнение мер безопасности, предусмотренных мирным договором между Египтом и Израилем от 1979 г.

Пилотът се опитвал да извърши принудително кацане на магистралата Нувейба-Суец като преди това докладвал за технически проблем с един от двигателите, но закачил голям камион превозващ стъкло. За момент успял да набере височина, след което последвала катастрофата. Отломките на самолета са пръснати на километри разстояние. Камионът се запалил и напълно изгорял. Шофьорът на камиона успял да скочи от него след удара и се спасил. Самолетът летял по маршрута El-Gorah, дислокацията на основната база на MFO, към Сейнт Катерин в южната част на полуострова.

US/Montana/Great Falls

Canadian Forces Snowbird pilot from Quebec was killed Friday afternoon when his jet crashed while doing practice manoeuvres near Great Falls, Montana.
The pilot was identified as Capt. Shawn McCaufhey, 30, of Candiac, Que., south of Montreal.
Eyewitnesses said the aerial team was flying in formation before one jet left the group and fell to the earth
around 4 p.m. Central Time. "It just smacked into the ground and there was a big ball of flames."
"They were practising manoeuvres, and this plane, this Snowbird 2, left its formation and shortly after that pitched down and crashed, " said Allen Kenitzer,
a regional spokeman for the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. "The pilot, the sole occupant, did not eject and was fatally injured."
The planes had been rehearsing for two shows this weekend at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana. Moments before the crash, three planes were flying in formation. They were about 60 to 90 metres off the ground. "As the two separated, the third plane kind of nosed
up, turned slightly on its wing and went straight down... "
The Snowbirds, officially named
the Canadian Forces 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, fly
CT-114 Tutors
and perform at 60 different airshows throughout North America.

Номер втори се разминал с други два самолета от групата на екстремно близко разстояние, но след това необяснимо защо, тъй като очевидците не са забелязали съприконовение между самолетите, загубил височина и през крило се забил в земята. Станало много бързо. Самолетите летели на около
60-90 м от земята.
Пилотът, капитан Shawn McCaufhey, на 30 години, не успял да катапултира и загинал. Групата Snowbird участва годишно в около 60 различни въздушни демонстрации в Северна Америка.
