Re: Airbus H125 Helicopter down at Lake Nakuru, Kenya - 5 fatalities

Very sad :rip2:

Recovery will take days, they don't even have a boat there according to the news articles.

Gigaba said the new board brings talent, expertise and energy to the airline. "They are all highly regarded individuals with a vast and in-depth knowledge of business in both the private and public sectors." What a load of Gigaberish :stupid4: By all accounts the individual with "avi...

Re: Antonov 26 crash Abidjan 14 OCT 2017

The Daily Mail always gets it wrong first time round :stupid4: but I see they have corrected some of the gibberish they initially wrote. The plane was based at OUA. I suspect they encountered a microburst on approach, or simply got disoriented. From ASN : Status: Preliminary Date: Saturday 14 Octobe...

Re: Friday the 13th: Flight 666 makes it safely to HEL

You can mitigate the bad luck effects of Friday 13th by the following (from WikiHow) Get out of the bed on the right side (that is, not the left side). This side is guaranteed to make your day luckier according to some superstitions. If you can't get out on that side because it is next to the wall o...

Re: SAA Agrees to Hire Recovery Expert

SAA had an "expert" before, Coleman Andrews, and he just helped trash it more. The govt has no business running businesses. They can't even carry out basic govt functions with any degree of competency, never mind the corruption. SAA must be privatized or simply shut down. The markets will ...

Re: Container catches fire while being loaded into B777
