VQ-BBN... Интересно, что там понарасследовали? #airdisaster #megaplane #boeing #tatarstanairlines

Did you know?
On August 14, 2005, a Helios Airways flight turned into a bizarre tragedy when the aircraft became a "flying tomb" and crashed into a mountain near the town of Grammatiko, Athens.
Helios Airways Flight 522, a Boeing 737-300, had been travelling from Larnaca, Cyprus, to Prague, Czech Republic, with a scheduled stop in Athens. While the aircraft was climbing to its cruising altitude of 34,000 feet, a catastrophic loss of cabin pressure and oxygen supply caused the temperature in the aircraft to gradually descend to -50 degrees Celsius.
The extreme temperatures at altitude froze everyone inside the aircraft, killing them. Andreas Prodromou, one of the stewards, was the last to fall victim as he fought desperately to regain control of the aircraft from the frozen pilots until he too was overcame by the severe cold. His heroics were witnessed by two Greek F-16s sent up to investigate.
Even with the crew and passengers completely frozen, the aircraft continued to fly at altitude for 2 hours on autopilot before it ran out of fuel. The Greek F-16s followed its descent until the aircraft crashed into a mountain at Grammatiko, 25 miles north of the Greek capital. All 115 passengers and 6 crew were lost.
The final report blames Cyprus and Greece's deadliest air disaster on the pilots, who failed to recognize what was happening until it was too late.

I took this Singapore airbus 380 from Kew. Do you own a drone. Im worrying as will be flying in a little bit. They say they are to be registered and owners will need to show they understand safety laws . Am still anxious though😂😱😵#drones #toys #airport #airdisaster#crash #accident #portable #governments #airbus380 #singaporeairlines #holidays #safe #fear #flying #anxious #uk #england #heathrow #gatwick #vehicles #stansted #travel #summer

MARVEL MAY NOT HAVE HAPPENED... Oh Ye fans of the Amazing Spiderman get in here! and Iron-man, Captain America, Thor, Wolverine, Deadpool .... Do you know your favourite superheros may not have existed and your childhood would have been screwed cos Marvel comics may not have been started if Martin Goodman had boarded that flight on May 6 1937. Yeah, I'm talking about the Hindenburg disaster.

On that date, the German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was destroyed during its attempt to dock with its mooring mast at Naval Air Station Lakehurst in Manchester Township, New Jersey, USA. Of the 97 people on board, there were 35 fatalities.
A certain Martin Goodman tried to buy tickets that day. He had just concluded his honeymoon with his new wife, Jean Davis. There were tickets available but none of the seats were next to each other. The lovebirds decided against entering the aircraft. On that same aborted trip, the air disaster occurred.
That same year, Martin launched Timely Comics which was a precursor of Marvel Comics (launched on May 1 1939) and the rest is history... #Marvel #Marvelcomics #Spiderman #Thor #superhero #stanLee #MartinGoodman #History #AmazingSpiderman #Hindenburg #aviation #airdisaster #history #followtrain

October 31, 2000.
17 years ago, Singapore airlines B744, flight 006 crashed upon reaching V1 speed on takeoff, at Taiwan, Chiang Kai Shek international airport. At that time, there was strong winds , severe rain and thunderstorm taking place. The Captain decided to taxi the plane slowly in case they would skid off the wet runway. Despite having to get the airplane airborne as soon as possible, the Captain continued taxiing at a slow pace. Some time after, he finally reached the runway and lined up, about to takeoff. However, the junior officer notice a problem. He realised that Para Visual Display(PVD) has not lined up, which indicates that the plane was not on the correct runway. However , bcos many time have passed during taxi, the Captain still wrongly assumes that the plane was on the correct runway. He still decided to takeoff on that wrong runway. As the plane reached V1 speed, it collides with the construction equipments, tearing the plane into half. 83 out of 179 people died. Investigators cites the crash as pilot error. Both captain were subsequently fired by Singapore Airlines. As of April 6, 2012, Singapore Airline retired B747 in their fleets. Safety never comes without tragedy. May the 83 dead victims R.I.P
