Amtrak train strikes backhoe on tracks near Philadelphia

April 3, 2016

 

 

 

"Two construction workers were killed when an Amtrak train traveling from New York to Savannah, Ga., Sunday struck a backhoe that was on the tracks about 15 miles south of Philadelphia, Delaware County officials said.

 

The crash, which occurred around 8 a.m., derailed the lead engine of Palmetto Train 89, according to a statement by Amtrak.

Of the 341 passengers and seven crew members on the train, 35 people were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, according to Chester County Fire Commissioner Travis Thomas.
 
"We have the situation under control now," Thomas said.
U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told reporters in New York that both workers killed were Amtrak employees."

Why Are All These Superyachts Catching on Fire?

Molly Mosendz

April 11, 2016

 

From St. Thomas to Abu Dhabi, tens of millions in luxury yachts have recently gone up in flames.

 

"It started with a puff of smoke, seeping slowly into the clear and sunny St. Thomas air on a mid-March afternoon. “I went into a meeting, and when I came out, it was very on fire,” recalled Ryan Nichols, who witnessed Positive Energy, a reportedly $2.5 million yacht, go up in flames.

 

The now-ironically named yacht was hauled off to sea to avoid damaging other vessels, which was the case when two multimillion-dollar yachts caught fire in the Abu Dhabi Marina Yacht Club in early March, taking six boats with them. Two months earlier, a fire damaged two superyachts at a marina in Marmaris, Turkey, and another superyacht, the 95-foot Queen Anna, burned in Fethiye, Turkey.
 
“Almost always, when a boat catches fire and it's in a marina, and there are numerous boats downwind from it, the fire spreads pretty rapidly,” explained Al Golden, president of the Grasonville, Md.-based International Marine Insurance Services, which insures around 14,000 boats. Cynthia Sailor from the Florida Yacht Brokers Association put it more bluntly: “One cow kicking over a candle, and the whole city goes up.”
 
The string of yacht fires raises the question: Is there something about these multimillion-dollar investments that makes them susceptible to fire?"

Australian pilot among 12 people killed in Papua New Guinea plane crash

April 14, 2016

Megan Levy

 

"An Australian pilot was among 12 people killed when a light plane crashed into a swamp while landing at an airport in Papua New Guinea, authorities have confirmed.

 

Friends are paying tribute to former Sydney man Benjamin Picard, 31, who was flying the plane when it crashed about one kilometre short of the runway at Kiunga in Papua New Guinea's Western Province on Wednesday afternoon.

 


"Such devastating news Benj. You will be greatly missed," one friend, Matt Smith, wrote on Facebook.

 


"One of the world's biggest gentleman, such a kind caring soul, always putting others before himself. A friend of so many people from so many different parts of the world. RIP you bloody legend."

 

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed an Australian man was among those killed when the Britten Norman-Islander plane crashed about 3pm, local time, on Wednesday."

MALAYSIA: 55-CAR PASSENGER TRAIN VANISHES ON ITS WAY TO CHINA, 1337 PEOPLE MISSING

May 6, 2016

 

 

"A passenger train en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, carrying 31 Malaysian crew members and 1306 passengers from 11 nations, has apparently disappeared without a trace less than an hour after its departure."

 

 

 

"The train belonging to Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), a corporation owned by the Malaysian government, was last seen Monday morning near Tanjung Malim, approximately 70 kilometres north of the Malaysian capital.
 
For some reason that has yet to be determined, the 55-car train never made it to the next station, and the Malaysian government’s search efforts to locate the missing vehicle have yet to produce any result.
 
Malaysia’s Minister of Defence, Hishammuddin Hussein, assured that the search efforts would continue, and that they would now be concentrated over a much larger area than the 2000 km2 on which they had previously focused."
 
“The country’s best investigators are already on the case, trying to determine what happened to the train,” M. Hussein told reporters. “For the moment, we are not discarding any leads or hypothesis. We have no evidence indicating that an accident occurred, so we are still hoping to find the train intact, with the crew and passengers unhurt. We’ve mobilized a lot of ressources to find it, including planes, helicopters, ships and numerous soldiers, so it’s only a question of time before we succeed.”
 
An incomplete list of passengers has been made public by KTMB, including a majority of Malaysians, as well as 121 Chinese citizens, 41 Thais, 14 Burmese, 9 Laotians, 7 Australians, 5 Vietnamese, 4 British, 2 Americans, one French and one Canadian."

Wow, that is so odd! One can imagine that it should be somewhere near or on the tracks between where it was last seen and its destination. Or maybe there is another track that it got switched to. I guess wherever the train is, there is no cell phone service. This is a real puzzle.

"A B-52H Stratofortress crashed around 8:30 a.m. on Andersen Air Force Base's flight line, the base's public affairs office has confirmed.

 
All seven crew members safely exited the aircraft. No injuries have been reported. Emergency responders are on scene, according to Andersen's public affairs.
 
The B-52 was deployed to Andersen from Minot Air Force Base, in North Dakota, as part of the military's continuous bomber presence mission in the Pacific.
 
The crew members are from the 69th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron and were performing a routine training mission, according to Andersen.
 
The incident is under investigation and measures to mitigate possible environmental impacts are being taken, Andersen stated. More information will be released as it becomes available.
 
It's the second crash involving a B-52 in Guam in eight years.
 
In July 2008, a B-52 crashed into the ocean about 35 miles northwest of the island, killing all six flight crew on board, according to an Air Force investigation report."

Two US Navy F-18s crash in the Atlantic off North Carolina’s Outer Banks

May 26, 2016

 

 

"Two of the US Navy’s F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets have crashed off the coast of North Carolina on Thursday, the US Coast Guard confirmed. Their crews have been recovered and taken to a hospital.

 

Four people have been recovered and taken to the Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia, the Virginian-Pilot reported citing Coast Guard Petty Officer Fagal Nifin.
 
Nifin said the extent of the crew members’ injuries is “unknown.” One of the crew had a leg injury, reported WCTI.
 
Search and rescue teams were deployed to the Oregon Inlet area, 25 miles off the North Carolina shore, after reports of two planes colliding around 10:30 ET, according to Norfolk’s WBEC.
 
Coast Guard officials in Elizabeth City told WCTI that the planes involved were from the Naval Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, Virginia. A fishing vessel reportedly assisted with the rescue."

Let's put emphasis on the fact that a commercial fishing boat was able to immediately locate these crashed fighter jets and rescue all involved. This, as distinguished from a commercial aircraft potential explosion in air and/or crash into a sea occupied by numerous sea vessels conducting war training exercises where they pretty much haven't found jack.

MS 804

 

@kandescent  amazing, no?

 

I know we've discussed this on a couple threads, but let's continue it here.  I know that we did make note of them supposedly having a black box signal a week after it went down, and we all thought it very strange, as the batteries only last two days, so the article I read, said.  That, of course it could have come from a satellite that stored the info, then released it, as ground facilities became available.  It seems to me that this plane is the very same sort of thing that happened to MH 370.  Now I come across this story from May 27th, saying there was never any signal. Interesting how I posted a story dated May 28th, saying there was.  Color me confused, or something awful strange is going on.  ok first the story

 

EgyptAir Investigation: Reuters Source Denies Signal From Jet

May 27, 2016

 

"No new radio signal has been received from an EgyptAir jet since the day it crashed in the Mediterranean Sea last week, sources close to the investigation told Reuters on Friday.

 
Media reports on Thursday suggested that a new signal had allowed officials to further home in on where the black box recorders might be located.
 
A radio signal picked up on the day of the crash from the plane's emergency locator transmitter (ELT) allowed officials to determine a broadly defined search zone, but nothing new has since been detected, the sources told Reuters.
 
"There has been nothing since day one," a source familiar with the investigation told Reuters."
 
The Airbus A320 crashed on May 19 with 66 people on board.
 
A French vessel carrying specialist probes designed to detect black-box pinger signals arrived on Friday at the search zone, sources on the investigation committee said to Reuters.
 
The vessel contains equipment from ALSEAMAR, a subsidiary of French industrial group Alcen, that can pick up black-box pinger signals over long distances up to 3 miles, according to the company's website."

Signal From EgyptAir Flight MS804 Could Pinpoint Location of Wreckage

Then the story above from May 27th telling NO SIGNALS since Day 1
 
NOW THIS
 
Distress signal from EgyptAir flight 804 confirmed by authorities in Cairo and US
May 31, 2016
 
 
"Locator beacon was picked up by satellites in minutes after Airbus A320 carrying 66 people disappeared from radar over Mediterranean
 
Egyptian authorities have confirmed a distress signal was received from EgyptAir flight 804 when it crashed in the Mediterranean with 66 people on board.
 
A US official from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) also said an emergency beacon was picked up by satellites minutes after the airliner disappeared from radar on 19 May as it flew from Paris to Cairo, according to reports.
 
A posting on Egypt’s State Information Service website said investigators had “received satellite reports indicating receiving an electronic distress call from the plane’s emergency locator transmitter (ELT)”. The co-ordinates were being used to narrow down the search area, the statement said.
 
The plane disappeared from radar screens at 2.29am local time and the Bloomberg news agency, quoting Lieutenant Jason Wilson of the NOAA, said an ELT on the plane began transmitting at 2.36am local time. The signal was picked up by five satellites, triggering an alert to a ground station in Cyprus that confirmed the identity of the Airbus A320 and narrowed the possible crash area to about three miles.
 
A ground station in Maryland, US, also received “two bursts” from the satellites but not enough to pinpoint the beacon’s location, Bloomberg said.
 
Investigators have said it will be more than a week until they can recover the plane’s “black box” flight recorders when a ship capable of retrieving them arrives in the Mediterranean search zone, but teams are continuing to search for the wreckage in the meantime.
 
The flight recorders have enough battery power to emit signals for four or five weeks." <<<<  WHAT??
snip
 
Are you as confused as I am, or is it just me?  kandescent  where are you?? LOL input, input!!
 
We were told of a large military exercise(Phoenix) going on in the Mediterranean Sea at the time this plane went down, right?  Wonder if they were testing any new weapons??  Last night, I was listening to a you tube  with Dr. Richard Allen Miller, from 2014.  At about 12 minutes in, and on for a  couple, something in regard to MH 370 was mentioned.  Military exercises, new weapon testing going on at the time MH 370 disappeared. China testing a laser heat cannon. I had no clue as to why I was even listening to that program, and now this today about MS 804.  Strange, and very similar to MH 370 circumstances.  Did I stumble onto something?  RAM also mentioned the CHANI project, yes, surprised was I, at about 1 hr 27 or so in.  Here is that video.

It is confusing, breezy. We may need to pull out some maps like we did for the Canadian train derailment! ; -)

I read a little about the ELT signals, which are different from the signals that comes from the black boxes. Apparently the ELT signal is triggered by G - forces or impact. Also can be manually triggered. The article I saw last week, I could swear, said the EgyptAir plane had four different ELT. It seems they may only emit a signal for up to 48 hours. However, when they do emit signals, the satellite immediately picks it up and the data is immediately forwarded to wherever such info gets forwarded.

I am of the impression that a signal was received that did pinpoint the location. I mean, these are all of the mainstream news agencies reporting it. I even saw a Wall Street journal article reporting it. I haven't seen any retractions, or much other reporting about the plane. I don't know how they can go back and disclaim that a signal was picked up. They aren't even saying that it was a signal from another beacon. That would apparently be a valid claim since there seem to be false positives on the ELTs.

And, yes, they are running out of time on the black box beacons. No update on the electronic submarine they were sending to search for it. Also, what about sonar devices. I know the military has plenty of those.

I still don't know how the can find underground artesian springs and such with satellites but cannot find a plane underwater. And, hey, at least this one is limited to the Mediterranean and not somewhere in an ocean.

I just don't know, breezy. I can't even begin to figure out how to sleuth this one. But it is clear that things are not on the up and up.

Here's an article with profiles on the crew and a few of the passengers. There could be a list out there somewhere. This article says EgyptAir would not release names until family members had been contacted (which is fair). So maybe they have released the names by now??

http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/19/middleeast/egyptair-victim-profiles/index.html

Remember when there used to be investigative reporters. I think the only ones left are a few local reporters investigating local things. Though I suspect that the media companies would only report what they are "allowed" to.

SMYRNA, Tenn. (WKRN) – A pilot was killed after a U.S. Navy Blue Angels jet crashed Thursday afternoon in Smyrna ahead of their weekend airshow at the city’s airport.

The F/A-18 aircraft crashed at 3 p.m. near Weakly Lane, about 2.5 miles from the Nissan manufacturing plant, while practicing for the demonstration.

The U.S. Navy confirmed the pilot died in the crash. The name of the pilot is being withheld pending next-of-kin notification requirements.

Blue Angels Pilot Dies in Crash Outside Nashville

[snip]

The crash occurred just hours after an F-16 belonging to the Air Force's Thunderbirds demonstration team crashed just outside Petersen Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The pilot was able to eject safely in that case.

The Thunderbirds had just participated in a flyover of the Air Force Academy's graduation ceremony, attended by President Barack Obama.

The president later met with the F-16 pilot involved in the crash.

EgyptAir MS804 crash: Plane 'had been forced to make several emergency landings' before disaster

June 2, 2016

Rory Mulholland

 

 

"The doomed EgyptAir plane that plunged into the Mediterranean last month with the loss of 66 lives was forced three times to turn around after taking off and return to three different airports in the 24 hours preceding the crash, reports say.

 
The Airbus A320’s warning systems signalled anomalies on board three times during the plane’s six rotations - between Asmara in Eritrea, Cairo, and Tunis - in the 24 hours before it disappeared on its final flight, according to French media.
snip
 
But each time when it returned to the airport it had just taken off from, it was quickly allowed to leave again after inspectors carried out a technical audit and found nothing amiss, the reports said.
 
EgyptAir’s chairman however denied the claims.
 
"For me it is not true," Safwat Musallam said on the sidelines of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) annual meeting in Dublin.
 
He said flight MS804 had not experienced any maintenance issues before departure and that the plane was "normal".
 
"We fully trust the aircraft and the pilot," said Mr Musallam.
 
The reports came a day after a French naval ship detected signals from one of the black box flight recorders from the missing EgyptAir plane that was en route from Paris to Cairo when it disappeared off radar screens and crashed in the early hours of May 19.
snip
 
The discovery raises hopes that the data and cockpit voice recorders, known as black boxes, can soon be retrieved and will give insight into what caused the crash.
 
The search zone for the jet has now been narrowed to two kilometres (1.24 miles), an Egyptian source on the investigation committee said on Thursday.
 
But it will be at least a week before a specialist vessel carrying robots able to dive to 3,000 metres will arrive to help retrieve the devices in the crash area that lies around 180 miles north of the Egyptian port of Alexandria."
snip  Videos at link
 

It would seem to me that there are people who flew on flight MS804, in that previous 24 hour pre-crash time period, right? I would think any one who did take that flight prior to the crash, is very aware that they were on it.  How about someone contact any of them, and ask if their flight had to return to those airports due to aircraft malfunction? Not only that, wouldn't there be actual airport records to prove that allegation?  I know it could take some time, but IF that plane had returned for those reasons, it then makes EgyptAir liable.

Not sure if the folks outside of the US would understand the gravity the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds hold here....and I am actually surprised at the LACK of outward mourning for the Blue Angel pilot...its bizarre.....I think it was a message to the US Military....to keep them in check....and the lack of coverage is like pouring vinegar in the wounds...

 

If military planes are going to crash from "engine failure" - it would NOT be from any of these....this has nothing to do with "old equipment"
