I am having a hard time to take my mind off of the MH17 plane crash.


My thoughts are with all those people who died at the Planecrash in Tripoli. 104 people died, 70 Dutch mothers, fathers and children where killd at a horreble accedent yesterday, only one 9 year old Dutch boy Ruben survived. .....i can only be still



I still can't quite believe this news. Sending thoughts and prayers to all of my Polish friends. Przykro mi.

This is the largest piece on display of a World War 11 Liberator bomber, which crashed on a training mission near Goldfield, Nevada, in 1944. Nine men died.


The former gold rush town has withered up in the desert, with a population of only about 300, and there are remains of all sorts of mining equipment and vehicles rusting away.

It was a total shock for all the people at work & me that one of our colleagues Petra and her friend Eric died in the MH17 planecrash. Also a student from one of our other schools died with his family due to this crime. It makes me wonder even more why people do this to eachother. Why conflicts and problems cannot be solved with words and meetings instead of innocent blood shed. I hope all the victims will find peace.

OK, so it's not a real plane crash... just a sculpture in the middle of Philadelphia, Pa. We came around a corner and my friend Ray said to me, "you're gonna love this". I don't think he was aware that I have a huge fear of flying, so seeing this kinda gave me the chills. But it was a good photo op. Thanx Ray.

AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) - Officials are trying to piece together exactly what happened with Continental Flight 3407 before it crashed into a home in Clarence Thursday.


44 people and 4 crew members were on the plane. One person on the ground also died. The flight was a 74-seat Q400 Bombardier aircraft and operated by Colgan Air. Colgan officials are expressing sorrow to the family members of the victims in the accident.


The President and CEO of the Pinnacle Airlines Corp and CEO of Colgan Air, Philip Trenary says they are doing everything they can to find out what caused the crash. Officials say they Q400 Bombardier was a brand new plane. The pilot flying the plane was a male and had a female co-pilot. They have confirmed the flight did leave Newark and was delayed.


The flight was originally scheduled to arrive at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport around 8:30pm Thursday, they have not said why it was delayed. This is the first accident with the company."



Went up flying the other day and mid flight our TCAS went mad, had a quick look out the front and here was a 757 screaming towards us at 310kts, pretty scary but I managed to grab a quick picture (straight out camera btw) and pull up before a massive disaster, phew.. I don't half have some fun in mid-air.


(Just kidding of course, we don't have TCAS!...okay but Thomas Cook had seen my Typhoons in flight image and wondered if they too could have an aerial shoot)..


okay, just kidding again, its a composite image!

Hiking out from Mt Rexford looking across the valley to the Slesse Group, Too bad about the giant clearcut, at least it is 30 years old now...

Most people don't know this, but there are at least six small aircraft wrecks in the Black Mountain Range, home of Mount Mitchell, the highest peak in Eastern North America.


All the ones I'm familiar with are small Cessna type planes like this one. Some crashed into the mountain due to weather, and at least one set down under control after a mechanical problem (the pilot and passenger both survived).


It isn't too hard to fathom why there are so many. Most of these planes fly below 5,000 ft in unregulated airspace. Most of the Black Mountain range is over 6,000 ft in elevation and often obscured in clouds.


The saddest part of the story, perhaps, is that both of the crash sites I've been to so far are only fifty feet below the ridge line. A little bit more altitude and they probably would have made it.


I'm currently trying to find out more about the history of some of these incidents and hope to locate all the wrecks. If you know anything please let me know.

…It got a whole new meaning on this dreamy, incredible day. Abandoned American military plane on the black beaches of Iceland, before looming glaciers, and with my husband standing on top of it for good measure.


Yesterday's photograph from Iceland was a hit, so I thought I'd add another.

The emergency services are pictured at work in the aftermath of one of the worst tragedies ever to take place in our region.


At just after 10.00am on Sunday 4 June 1967, a British Midlands International Canadair C-4 Argonaut aircraft crashed in Hopes Carr, Stockport. The aircraft had been returning holidaymakers from the island of Majorca to Manchester Airport when it developed engine problems and came down just a few miles short of its destination.


Members of the public joined police, fire and ambulance staff in a bid to rescue survivors from the wreckage but sadly, fire engulfed the aircraft after a short time.


Stockport Borough Police’s PC Bill Oliver – the first officer to reach the crash scene - began to attempt a rescue. He was joined by PC John Heath and others – including many heroic members of the public – and between them they managed to pull 12 survivors clear before finally being beaten back by the spreading flames.


In total, 72 of the 84 passengers and crew were killed in the crash, which is the fourth worst disaster in British aviation history.


A subsequent investigation found the crash had been caused by a defect in the design of the aircraft’s fuel system.


In 1998 a memorial to those killed was unveiled close to the scene.


In 2002 a second memorial was unveiled commemorating the bravery of all those involved in the rescue.


During a memorial service this year (2012) the Mayor of Stockport, Councillor Wendy Meikle, laid a wreath at the site of the disaster at 10.09am on Monday 4th June - exactly 45 years after the tragedy.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg paid tribute to the pilot of Flight 1549.


He said: "It woud appear the pilot did a masterful job of landing the plane in the river and making sure everyone got out." The pilot "walked the plane twice" to ensure all passengers had got out before leaving the plane himself.


Mayor Bloomberg said the NTSB would be investigating the cause of the accident and would be arriving in New York this evening.


At the same press conference, New York Governor David Paterson also paid tribute to the US Airways pilot and called the rescue a "miracle on the Hudson".


In a live interview with a rescued passenger identified as Alberto Panero, CNN's Wolf Blitzer reported that all passengers are safe and that the emergency exit was smoothly handled by US Airways staff.


When asked about his feelings immediately after the rescue Alberto Panero replied, "It was a near death experience (that) thankfully did not turn that way." Passengers are crediting pilots and crew with averting a potential tragedy.


TV pictures showed passengers standing on the wings of the plane in the frigid waters. Ferries surrounded the plane, an Airbus A320.


Flight 1549 information


For updates on Flight 1549 try the US Airways hot line 1-800-679-8215 Doug Parker, US Airways CEO, is asking that only family and loved ones of passengers use this number.


Flight 1549, an Airbus A320, was at maximum capacity of 150 seats when it went down, and the total number on board including pilots and crew was 155. As many as 71 people are believed to have been treated for minor injuries at nearby hospitals, including four reported cases of hypothermia.New Jersey Police report that the airliner's pilot signalled a mayday following the bird strike and then was able to fly the plane to the Hudson River and ditched the aircraft. The plane went down near 48th Street in midtown Manhattan.


Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura Brown says the US Airways Flight 1549 had just taken off from LaGuardia Airport enroute to Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday when the crash occurred in the river near 48th Street in midtown Manhattan.


Brown says the plane, an Airbus 320, may have been hit by birds.


The plane was submerged in the icy waters up to the windows. Rescue crews had opened the door and were pulling passengers in yellow life vests from the plane. Several boats surrounded the plane, which appeared to be slowly sinking.

In 1973, a US Navy DC3 (R4D-8; registration 17171) made a forced landing on a black lava sand beach, near Vik, Iceland. The fuselage remains on the beach, over 40 years later.

The US Navy DC3 wreck at Solheimasandur. There are a few stories on how this came to be here. My favourite is in November 1973, this plane crash-landed here after running out of fuel as a result of foul weather on its way to Reykjavik. Everyone on board survived. The Navy salvaged some of the plane, but much of it remains here to this day, in the very spot where it came down. Getting here is not easy. It's about an hour's walk from the main road in black sand. Also, when we went, a stream from the glaciers proved very difficult to cross. But we did it. Check the map for the approximate location.
