    An Atlas Air Boeing 747 Freighter nearly became a casualty after if flew within 670 feet of a mountain in Hong Kong recently. The incident happened to a Boeing 747-8F on climbout from Hong Kong International Airport back on September 24th. Air traffic control informed the crew that the aircraft was off track, and told them to turn left to resume the standard instrument departure (SID). This was followed by a request to "expedite the climb to 5,000ft.". The Atlas Air freighter is registered N856GT.

    British Hybrid Airship has suffered yet another set back with their Airlander Airship. The aircraft broke loose from its mooring mast at the homebase in England during wet and windy conditions. The airship looks a complete wreck and this is the second serious incident during this test program. It casts a serious blow and now the development of this airship may have serious problems in the future. The Airlander only returned to the air in May of this year after suffering a bad accident last year.

    The Bombardier Challenger 604 that was involved in the Airbus A380 wake turbulence incident has been written off and now sold for parts. The aircraft recently was flown to Germany on an Antonov An-124 transporter where a German company will use it for spare parts for its small fleet of similar model Challenger aircraft. The G-stresses that the airframe undertook during the incident rendered the plane unsafe to continue service. The aircraft was previously operated by MHI and was sold to FAI Germany which has a fleet of six Challengers.

    JFK Airport just cannot stay out of the news whether it is for the weather, accidents, burst main in Terminal 4 or stranded passengers fighting. A Kuwait Airways Boeing 777-300ER suffered damage after its tailcone was destroyed from the wing tip of a China Southern Boeing 777-300ER. The Kuwait Airways aircraft was at the gate parked before it was scheduled to depart for Kuwait when the accident happened. No one was injured in the event, the passengers were taken off the planes and accommodated at hotels while alternate flights were arranged.

    A Scoot Boeing 787 cabin door was damaged while the aircraft was at Changi International Airport in Singapore. Apparently, the chocks were taken off the aircraft while the brakes were not ON allowing the jet to roll back a few meters as it was still at the jetway. That subsequently ripped the L2 door from it's hinges. Photo By Jetline Marvel

    A Flexjet Embraer Phenom 300 was damaged when it suffered a runway excursion recently. Six persons were onboard at the time of the incident and none were reported injured as a result. The jet was flying from Oakland International Airport and landed at Bend Municipal Airport in Oregon. The jet was coming to the end of its landing roll when it reportedly slowly skidded approximately 10-yards off the runway. The NTSB is currently investigating. The aircraft involved in the incident is said to be registered N354FX.

    Not a jet, but there is news that a Robinson R44 helicopter crashed off the coast in Brazil. It went down in the ocean off the state of Recife in what has been described as 'heavy rain'. The helicopter was utilized as a newscopter and was actually engaged in filming a segment for an early morning show, 'Good Morning Pernambuco'. Witnesses suggest that they heard strange sounds coming from the engine as it went down. The pilot and a passenger were killed in the crash reports suggest. Another passenger is said to be in critical condition after surgery.

    It has been a rough few days in aviation with a number of casualties. The latest one is of a Bombardier Q400 that crashed in Kathmandu. This aircraft is said to have been operated by US-Bangla and had registration S2-AGU. 67 passengers and four crew members were on board at the time of the crash. Twenty passengers have so far been rescued and transported to the nearest hospital. It is being reported that the aircraft suffered a technical fault during landing which led to the crash.

    A helicopter crashed in New York's East River killing 5. The pilot is said to have survived. The crash might have been caused by one of the passengers luggage inadvertently hitting the fuel shut-off button but the NTSB says a team of 14 were expected to travel to the site to determine the real cause of the crash. A mayday call was received at LaGuardia Airport from the pilot of the stricken helicopter.This crash happened yesterday, Sunday 11th of March.

    The next crash involved a Bombardier Challenger 604 with registration TC-TRB on Sunday 11th March. That apparently crashed in the mountains of Iran. A total of 11 were onboard, 8 passengers and 3 crew members. The flight was flying to Istanbul, Turkey from Sharjah in the UAE. Iranian air traffic controllers said they lost contact with the aircraft in the Zagros Mountain region. This Challenger 604 was built by Bombardier in 2001.

    An Emirates crew member fell from an Emirates Boeing 77W in Uganda yesterday. The Ugandan Civil Aviation Authority said a member of the cabin crew "appeared to have opened the emergency door" and that she "unfortunately fell off". The lady was taken to local hospital for her injuries and is alive and not a fatality as was previously and initially reported on social media.

    As an update, the same female crew member that fell from the Emirates Boeing 77W while it was parked at a Ugandan Airport has succumbed to her injuries.
    Kisubi hospital's spokesperson Edward Zabonna told the BBC that the crew member had injuries "all over her face and knees". He said that she had been "unconscious but alive" when she arrived at the hospital on Wednesday evening but died soon after. News agency AFP quotes a statement from Emirates Airline as saying: "A member of our cabin crew unfortunately fell from an open door while preparing the aircraft for boarding". The Dubai-based airline promised its "full cooperation" with the investigation.

    With all the problems P&W is having with their Geared Turbo Fan (GTF) engines that were manufactured for the Airbus A320neo and all the issues they are causing for lowcost carriers that are using them the Canadian company has given a new timeline for return to service. All 43 in-service PW1100G-JM geared-turbofan (GTF) engines are currently undergoing modification by Pratt & Whitney. This follows operating restrictions imposed on them by a February 9 EASA emergency airworthiness directive. According to PW President Robert Leduc, the engine type will return to the air by the end of April.

    Addressing attendees on Friday at United Technologies’ Annual Analysts and Portfolio Managers Meeting in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, Leduc confirmed his estimate did apply to the fleets of affected PW1100G engines powering Airbus A320neos operated by Indian carriers IndiGo and GoAir. India’s DGCA grounded the two airlines’ A320neo fleets earlier this week after a GoAir A320neo suffered an in-flight shutdown of one of its GTF engines on Monday. IndoGo experienced two in-flight shutdowns earlier this year.
