    A Korean Air Boeing 777-300 had to end its planned flight from Tokyo Haneda to Seoul Gimpo after fire was realized in one of the engines. “The plane was taxiing for take-off when flame was detected from engine No.1,” says Korean Air. “The take-off was immediately cancelled.” All 302 passengers and 18 crew onboard flight KE2708 were evacuated via the aircraft’s emergency inflatable slides.

    A Boeing 737 was damaged by a fire in or near the hangar at the Prague Airport yesterday. Information is still sketchy but the aircraft is said to be a 737 operated by Congo-based airline ECAir. The fire took place at the hangar and was extinguished relatively quickly by the airport's fire personnel. If sources are correct, the aircraft is a Boeing 737-700 series registered OO-JJI.

    There has been an unfortunate incident with a commercial airliner wearing Emirates colours. From this photo it appears the aircraft is one of their Boeing 777 models. Information surrounding what happened is still unclear but it seemed to have crash-landed and caught fire. One tweet suggested that the aircraft was coming from India.

    An Air Algerie Boeing 737-600 enroute from Algeria to Marseille radioed in of a mid-air emergency and vanishes from radar afterwards. However, it has been reported that the same flight safely landed back in Algeria. The disappearance from radar cause and uproar but it was more than likely due to a lack of ADS-B coverage in certain parts of the Algiers airspace. Apparently once planes go below 17,000 ft the plane vanishes from tracking sites like Flight Radar24.

    A Bombardier CRJ900 was severely damaged at Copenhagen's Airport after a mobile X-Ray unit that was being towed became unhinged. The unit was being towed by a vehicle when it apparently went over a bump on the tarmac forcing the locking pin upwards and out. The unit was being towed at around 40kph at the time which is said to be within the speedlimit. The driver however, did not install a safety wire on the trailer hitch and once the pin became unattached, the unit careened uncontrolled into the parked Bombardier CRJ900. The aircraft was resting at gate A17 and in the process of boarding when the incident happened.

    A King Air B200 crashed in Australia killing all onboard. The The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is now investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash of the 1996-built B200 Super King Air. The aircraft was registered VH-ZCR and was said to have departed the Essendon Airport in Melbourne on a charter flight to King Island. It left but crashed shortly after takeoff. The turboprop twin crashed into the Direct Factory Outlet center and burst into flames killing all onboard.

    A Cessna Citation X parked on the Atlantic Aviation ramp at Salt Lake City International Airport was seriously damaged last Thursday morning when it was struck by a pickup truck driven by an employee of the neighboring Tac Air facility. The truck hit the trailing edge of the left wing of the unoccupied twinjet, owned by XOJet, and spun the aircraft approximately 180 degrees. The truck ended up in a grassy ditch near the taxiway. Airport fire and rescue had to extricate the driver from the mangled truck, and he was rushed to the hospital with what were described as “non-life-threatening injuries.” (AIN)

    News in that two Icon employees were unfortunately killed in an accident concerning an Icon A5 that crashed in California. Icon has not been having a good time of recent since having the A5. This crash comes just a month or so after a very hard landing of another A5 on a lake in Florida which reportedly left the amphibian seaplane partially submerged. The Icon company also appears to be struggling to fulfill deliveries as an anticipated ramp up in shipments never came to fruition. The FAA and the NTSB has dispatched a team to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash.

    A Learjet 35A crashed just outside of the Teterboro airport in New Jersey on approach yesterday. The aircraft involved was 1981 build LearJet 35A N452DA / MSN 35-452. A search of the FAA’s online registration database shows that the aircraft was registered to A&C Big Sky Aviation LLC. Both pilots died in the crash news reports suggest

    A jet has crashed at Ellington Airport. Apparently it is an F-16 fighter jet and reports suggest that the pilot was able to eject from the aircraft before it 'crashed'. He has since then been taken to hospital and as a result of the crash, the airport is now closed.

    A SkyWest Bombardier CRJ700 suffered an engine fire at Denver's Airport while landing. No one was injured and all 59 passengers and crew evacuated without incident. The particular aircraft appears to be N796SK and even though there was a fire on the left engine the aircraft was evacuated via airstairs and not emergency slides/chutes. The jet was operating for United Express from Aspen to Denver.

    A United States Marine Corps C130 Transport aircraft crashed in Western Mississippi on Monday (July 10) afternoon killing 16 service members that were onboard. Specifically the aircraft was a KC-130 which is often used to provide refueling capabilities. Apparently the aircraft left Cherry Point North Carolina and crashed in rural Mississippi near Leflore County.

    A SpiceJet Boeing 737 suffered runway excursion at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai, India. The incident happened yesterday just short of 22:00LT. The jet was operating from Varanasi to Mumbai as flight SG-703 when it landed and skidded off the runway during wet conditions. It left the runway and ended up on an unpaved area. None of the 183 passengers were injured in the incident.

    A Cessna Citation crashed at Turkey's Ataturk International Airport. The aircraft was registered TC-KON and had malfunctions on take off. Slight injuries were reported to those onboard but no fatalities were recorded. The plane burst into flames and the rear end of the jet detached. Flights were suspended for a time at the airport but Ataturk has since resumed full service.

    IIRC approximately 1 out of 3 ejections end with a fatality. I thought the odds would be higher than that.

    Japanese authorities are probing an incident where a metal panel dropped from a departing KLM Boeing 777 on departure from Osaka. The aircraft was flying from Osaka to Amsterdam when the incident happened. The piece of metal fairing came from a Boeing 777-200ER operated by Dutch carrier KLM as flight KL868 on Saturday September 23rd. The metal piece struck a car but no injuries were reported to authorities. "KLM regrets this incident and has immediately launched an investigation into the causes," says the carrier. "KLM is in close contact with the Japanese Civil Aviation Authority and Boeing on this matter."
