Airbus / Scarebus continues its ritual un-prosecuted pre-meditated killing of passengers world wide. From forcing tsunami destroyed countries to buy Scarebus to get aid, to failing the A380 150% wing-loading test, Scarebus builds on its reputation for falling out of the sky. FL35, cruise and it "breaks up". Nice. Good planes.

If its not a Boeing, I'm not going.

Scarebus continues its engineering of murder and mayhem the world over. How many of our sons, daughters mothers and fathers and wives and husbands must be murdered by SCAREBUS before we stop this animal!

There have been recent and still as yet unexplained incidents at cruising altitude in the A330

See Qantas A330-300 (Flight QF72) emergency landing in Western Australia:

http://www.youtube.com/v/5d7aZtSOWZE

Concerning an A330 crash at an air show in France; a Discovery Channel documentary on this plane indicates that Air France had their best pilot on this plane and that computer was the cause:

FL35, cruise and it "breaks up". Nice. Good planes.

Boeing planes crash because operators violate the plane. Screw up maintenance. Basically Boeing crashes are from terrorists, people painting over pressure sensors, people flying them into things or massive mechanical failures brought on by horrific neglect or poor maintenance. They can be EXPLAINED.

Scarebus accidents have a scary high percentage of massive catastrophic failure that cannot be explained.

All I have to say is : B-17, B-24, B-29 and B-52, these planes were built in ways that could soak up gun fire for well over 60 years. They know how to build planes that have more than normal survivability. Air BUS. Its not AirPlane, its AirBus. Cheap garbage made as cheaply as possible to line the pockets of fat cats and unionized sickos and the safety of the plane is left to be at the EXACT minimums required, and they cheat often at those. Airbus is the culture of death. If you own stock in them, you are a killer. If you work for them, you are a killer.

Tsunami-hit Thais told: Buy six planes or face EU tariffs

Published Date: 19 January 2005 By FRASER NELSON

TSUNAMI-struck Thailand has been told by the European Commission that it must buy six A380 Airbus aircraft if it wants to escape the tariffs against its fishing industry.
While millions of Europeans are sending aid to Thailand to help its recovery, trade authorities in Brussels are demanding that Thai Airlines, its national carrier, pays £1.3 billion to buy its double-decker aircraft.


The wing of the Airbus A380 static test specimen suffered a structural failure below the ultimate load target during trials in Toulouse earlier this week, but Airbus is confident that it will not need to modify production aircraft.

The airframer has been running load trials on a full scale A380 static test specimen in Toulouse since late 2004 (pictured below). After completing "limit load" tests (ie the maximum loads likely to experienced by the aircraft during normal service), progressively greater loads have been applied to the specimen towards the required 1.5 times the limit load. Engineers develop finite element models (FEM) to calculate the load requirements.

"The failure occurred last Tuesday between 1.45 and 1.5 times the limit load at a point between the inboard and outboard engines," says Airbus executive vice president engineering Alain Garcia. "This is within 3% of the 1.5 target, which shows the accuracy of the FEM." He adds that the ultimate load trial is an "extremely severe test during which a wing deflection of 7.4m (24.3ft) was recorded".

Hard to say right now.  Though with the Boeing 777 having such a good safety record (SFO was a pilot eff-up), I wouldn't rule out a suicidal pilot (look up Egypt Air 990 for one example).

I hope it wasn't a suicidal pilot. Someone posted a website here on FARK a few years ago that had last moment cock pit recordings before crash. I believe that one was on there. That website was really sad to click through. For some reason, I couldn't help myself though. I can't remember what the site was.

It was a play - and I'm totally blanking on the name

Got it

That's not it.

What I am talking about had a compilation of links to cockpit recorders. There was no intro. just a website.

I love that show... I wish it aired new episodes in the US at the same time they premiere in Canada

I watched it on Netflix today   Some pretty interesting crashes. The Gimli glider was cool as hell.

Although it's not strictly relevant here, my favorite tale of harrowing aerial struggle is Pardo's Push.

You can just imagine the kind of thoughts going through a pilot's mind at a time like that... to come up with a long-shot like that, that actually worked, is amazing.

I liked the one where the captain was blown out the windscreen and they managed to hold onto his feet for the rest of the flight. That guy flew like Mitt's dog for quite a while.

Oh my word...

germ78: I wonder if the NTSB will get involved since it's a Boeing plane, or is this technically "out of their jurisdiction"?


Generally it gets investigated by a combination of:

2) country of destination.
3) country of incident
4) home country of airline
5) home country of airframe
6) home country of engines

Often, many of those are duplicates, but in this case, it would end up being a big multinational investigation.

cameroncrazy1984: Oldiron_79: LessO2: They said the plane "departed" at 12:41 a.m., which means they pulled the jet bridge back and the plane pushed from the gate then.

No idea how long the taxi was to the runway, but I'm guessing pushback, tug detaching, taxi, then wheels-up...that would take 15 minutes at a non-busy time.  If they flew a direct path to PEK, Google-fu estimates they went down somewhere over or near Vietnam.

Maybe the Vietnamese shot it down. Does anyone really want to go to war with them if they did?

There are probably some 70 year old men that wouldn't mind avenging some buddies' deaths.
