При крушении грузового самолета
Ан-12 в Демократической Республике Конго в пятницу, по уточненным данным, погибли восемь человек, в том числе экипаж самолета – два гражданина Украины и два гражданина Грузии - штурман самолета - Зураб Мосия (55) и механик- Артур Багдасаров. В числе погибших в авиакатастрофе - трое детей.
При посадке в аэропорту города Гома самолет проскочил взлетно-посадочную полосу, задел куски затвердевшей лавы, образовавшиеся после извержения 2001 года, и загорелся.
"У самолета взорвалась покрышка, затем покрышка с другой стороны, и самолет задел куски лавы в конце взлетно-посадочной полосы", - сказал очевидец катастрофы.
Самолет "Антонов" российского производства, принадлежавший местной авиакомпании Galaxy Kavatsi Аirlines, с грузом пальмового масла совершал перелет Киншаса - Букаву с промежуточной посадкой в Гома. По данным местных авиадиспетчеров, самолет зарегистрирован в Грузии.
Cargo plane crashes
on Congo runway

07.09.2007/10:00 GMT
DR Congo/Goma
A cargo plane crashed into a chunk of hardened lava at an airport in eastern Congo Friday, bursting into flames and
killing at least eight people.
Antonov-12 landed too far down the runway in Goma to allow it to stop before hitting the lava rocks. Lava from a volcanic eruption in 2001 flowed through half of Goma and the airport, reducing the area where aircraft could land. Rescue teams recovered the bodies. Two of the crew members were Ucrainians and two were Georgian. The pilots were flying for a Congolese company, Galaxy Kavatsi.The plane had taken off from the capital, Kinshasa, carrying oil and beauty products. Goma is on Congo's eastern border with Rwanda, on Lake Kivu. ITAR-Tass reported from Georgia that the plane was owned by Georgian carrier Transavi-service. It quoted Georgia's transport ministry as saying the plane wasn't authorized to fly because its license had expired in March and had not been renewed. Cargo planes were banned from carrying passengers after several accidents, but some continue to carry them clandestinely.

Карго самолет Антонов-12 с оператор местната
Galaxy Incorporation и собственик грузинската авиокомпания Transaviservice, катастрофира при кацане на летището в Гома, Д.Р. Конго.
Загинали са 8 души на борда. В това число е и четери-членният екипаж състоящ се от двама украинци и двама грузинци. Самолетът изпълнявал вътрешен полет по маршрута Киншаса-Гома-Букаву. Пренасял 18 т. товар от палмово масло и козметика. При кацането си на летището в Гома излязъл
извън пределите на полосата, ударил се
в късове втвърдена лава, останали от изригването на вулкана Нирагонго през 2001 г. и се възпламенил. Последвали експлозии.
Лавата в Гома е покрила част от летището, според някои осведомителни агенции, и значително скъсява разстоянието за пробег на самолетите.
Правителството в Д.Р. Конго наскоро
заповяда редица мерки за повишаване безопасността в авиацията, в това число
забраната карго самолетите да качват на борда си пасажери, както и строго да се съблюдават от авиокомпаниите допустимите норми за товарене на самолетите. Явно тези мерки се пренебрегват мълчаливо. Според грузинският министър на транспорта, катастрофиралият самолет е с изтекъл лиценз от март т. г., като за подновяването му трябва да се минат съответните технически проверки за годност и към момента не би трябвало да лети.

A turboprop plane (reg.
LN-RDK) with 73 people on board crashed as it landed in western Denmark, but no one was seriously injured. Television images showed the plane, a Scandinavian Airlines flight SK 1209 from Copenhagen to Aalborg, swerving sharply on the runway after its right landing gear buckled. The right wing and right propeller plowed through the ground, spinning the aircraft around to a shuddering stop as fire crews raced to the scene of the accident. There were 69 passengers and four crew members on the plane. Eleven people were taken to hospital to be treated for cuts and whiplash. According to the SAS website, the airline uses a De Havilland Canada DHC-8-400 plane on the Aalborg route. Popularly known as the Dash 8, the twin-engined turboprop is produced by Canada's Bombardier. Its Q400 version can seat between 68 and 78 passengers, depending on configuration.

24.09.2007 - Президент Венесуэлы Уго Чавес решил с понедельника перейти на собственное «венесуэльское время» для того, чтобы увеличить работоспособность своих граждан. Лидер Венесуэлы планирует перевести стрелки часов страны, идущей по пути «социализма XXI века», на полчаса назад. Таким образом разница с временем по Гринвичу составит не минус четыре часа, как в сейчас, а минус четыре с половиной часа. По мнению венесуэльского президента, это изменение необходимо, чтобы у венесуэльцев «обмен веществ в головном мозге улучшался в утренние часы, благодаря солнечному свету». Кроме того, он полагает, что «школьники теперь смогут просыпаться при дневном свете, а ложится до того, как стемнеет». Предвосхищая возможную реакцию со стороны международного сообщества, Чавес заявил журналистам: «Мне совершенно безразлично, что после моих предложений меня посчитают сумасшедшим. Пусть говорят, что хотят».

Машината пламва при кацане, няма българи, твърди Външно
Пукет. Жестока самолетна катастрофа погуби 89 души на тайландския остров Пукет, съобщи Ройтерс. Машината се разби при кацане на летището на остров Пукет. Най-вероятната причина за катастрофата е силен дъжд, лоша видимост и мокра писта.. Няма информация за пострадали българи към момента.
Катастрофиралият самолет е собственост на тайландската нискобюджетна компания "
12Go Airlines". Той е летял от столицата Банкок до остров Пукет със 123 пътници и 7 души екипаж, изпълнявайки полет OG/OX-269.
В него са пътували десетки туристи от чужбина..
Загиналите по последни данни са 89, а  41 души са пострадалите, като 5 от тях са в критично състояние. Въпреки лошото време пилотите решили да приземят машината. При кацането самолетът излязъл от пистата, врязал се в околните дървета, разцепил се на две части и се запалил. Според авиационните власти на Тайланд, пилотите на самолета МД-82 (рег. № HS-OMG) са решили да направят втори кръг около пистата, преди да кацнат, но машината е загубила равновесие и се е разбила.

Plane carrying 3 tons of cocaine crashes in southern Mexico

24.09.2007/16:00 GMT

An airliner -
Grumman Gulfstream (N987SA) stuffed with dozens of sacks of Colombian cocaine crashed in the jungle of southern Mexico. No casualties had been found but one person who was apparently on board the aircraft had been arrested. TV images showed 132 military-style black bags containing around 3.3 tonnes of cocaine lined up in rows next to chunks of the wrecked plane, which came down near the municipality of Tixkokob, a three-hour drive west of the Cancun beach resort. Mexican army planes had been tracking the aircraft since it was spotted entering Mexican air space. Drug planes packed with South American cocaine – often with passenger seats ripped out to make space – frequently fly through Mexico and Central America en route for the United States. Some unload their cargo at clandestine airstrips south of the border where traffickers send it on by road or sea.

Third emergency landing for Bombardier aircraft
A turboprop aircraft belonging to German regional carrier Augsburg Airways made an emergency landing in Munich after its nose landing gear failed to extend. No one was injured in the landing of the Dash 8 Q400 turboprop - a Bombardier-made plane - on Friday evening. Landing gear problems in Q400 models preceded the crash of an SAS plane on landing in Denmark on September 9 and a similar incident, with the same type of plane, in Lithuania three days later. Those accidents involved different parts from Friday's incident. The Augsburg Airways plane was flying from Munich to Florence, Italy, when the crew discovered that the nose landing gear would not extend. The pilot decided to return to Munich and make an emergency landing. All 64 passengers and four crew members were uninjured and able to leave the aircraft by the normal exits.
