It is in Finnish. https://www.flightforum.fi/topic/31086-kittil%C3%A4ss%C3%A4-sattunut-turma/ From what I gather the pilot opened the door from the outside and it opened violently onto him. The APU was running at the time. It appears to be a hydraulic actua...

The pilot of a Gulfstream 150 jet killed while opening door.

This is really weird. How can someone be killed by the door? Unless maybe if they are on the outside and the plane is pressurised.

Re: DHC-2 Beaver crash into river near Sydney - 6 fatalities

This might have something to do with it...

"It made a tight right-hand turn and as it actually turned around, the wings dipped and it nosedived straight into the water," he said.


When are pilots going to learn about overbanking in cumbersome airplanes?

R.I.P. and condolences

Re: Missing Argentine Submarine

Here's hoping they find the wreckage to determine the cause and prevent a recurrence. Was this due to negligence or a terrible accident? What says Slappy Kipper?

Re: Missing Argentine Submarine

I hope they get found and rescued! We don't want a repeat of the Kursk!

From the sounds of things and judging by the picture, the sub shouldn't have put to sea.

Re: GDs Fun Flights - Plett with King Air and Cemair Beech 1900

Border Air was a charter company based at the old Ben Schoeman airport (East London). They also had a schedule license and operated to Umtata.

I know the big chief of Cem Air, he seems to have done quite well for himself, started out with one small plane.

Some pictures of the crashed plane in the Daily Mail write-up.

Victims were 2 Americans, 2 Germans, 6 Tanzanians and a Saffer pilot. :rip2:

Any news about who the pilot was?

Read it at the Daily Mail
