    Fire on Airbus A319-115 Injures 36 Passengers in China


    An Airbus A319-115 passenger bus veered off the runway during takeoff and caught fire in the Tibet region of China Thursday. The crash sent black smoke billowing into the air and injured more than 36 passengers and aircrew.


    The Airbus A319-115, with 122 people aboard, left Chongqing for Nyingchi, in the Tibetan region of China, after leaving the city of Chongqing in the southwestern part of the country.

    In videos shared by state media, the aircraft’s left side appeared to be on fire as people headed away from the scene.


    Tibet Airlines said that the videos also showed fire trucks spraying water on the Airbus A319. Tibet Airlines reported that the accident occurred at 8:09 a.m. (0109 GMT).


    All 113 passengers and nine flight crew aboard the Airbus A319-115 jet were evacuated.


    Passengers injured evacuation the Airbus A319.


    According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), 36 people were injured during the evacuation.


    During the takeoff, the flight crew discovered an abnormality with the aircraft and stopped takeoff as required by procedure.


    About two hours after the accident, the airport announced that flights had resumed and an investigation was underway. The CAAC said that one runway remained closed.

    According to Wikipedia, as of June 2020, there have been 20 aviation accidents and incidents involving the Airbus A319, including three hull-loss accidents.


    No fatal accidents have been recorded involving the A319 aircraft.


    The A319 is a short-fuselage version of Airbus’ single-aisle A320 jetliner that proves versatile with a range of seating options, from a 110-seat configuration to a capacity of 160, all of which offer the highest level of passenger comfort.

    Yes, well done the pilots for not taking off in a plane that was obviously on fire.

    Were the pilots actions:

    1. The"discovery of the abnormality", via a warning from some automated system, some klaxons, bells and whistles, a call/ heavy banging on the cockpit door, from the Chief Steward who was sipping is hot coffee which spilt on his uniform .... ?

    2. The "procedure to abort the takeoff". Is it mandatory to check the "procedure manual checklist" prior to taking any emergency actions?

    Completed safely, prior to or after, the fire became "obvious", to 1st Class VIP 'arry, sat in seat 1A sipping a KoolAid?

    ^ are you blabbering again?

    A fooking great bang coming from the engine gave them a hint there was something wrong.
    Rejected takeoff is part of the take off brief and it's memory items.

    The pilots lost control either due to mechanical failure, or due to error; we'll find out in the accident report.

    How many Chines pilots would have followed a ‘big bang’ from the engine, with an exemplary take off? You utter fucking thoughtless moron. (Addressed to OhOh) You can read, but you can’t fly a commercial aircraft.

    MK's posted report, in words and via it's video, only shows a plane burning on the grass. It does report:

    Do have a link supporting your opinion that the engine blew up prior to the plane leaving the runway, prior to the wing dropping, and prior to the engine falling off?

    The Washington Post reports slightly more:

    "The aircraft left the runway and caught fire after the engine hit the ground. Currently the fire has been put out,” the aviation authorities said in a statement.
    One passenger, Long Anquan, told China News Service that during takeoff he heard an unusual noise, after which the plane started to lean to one side and hit the ground with its wing. Long quickly bent forward and put his hands over his head, but the impact was so strong that he was still injured."

    The ABC report's better video shows the nose on the ground and no engine under the left wing.

    https://www.xxx.xxx.xx/news/2022-05-...fire/101062794

    Which suggests the "abnormality", occurred

    1. prior to the plan leaving the runway,

    2. prior to the wing dropping, - possibly caused by the pilots turning off the runway, IMHO a dubious thing to be done by the pilots, as opposed to staying on the runway.

    3. prior to an undercarriage failure,

    4. prior to the engine falling off

    5. and only then did the engine burst into flames.

    Agreed, it may not have come from the engine, it may not even have been two explosions. It's possible the MLG collapsed during the take-off roll, in which case the pilots were just passengers during the episode. However, a MLG collapse during take-off is a very rare event, I can't actually recall an occurrence, which is why I went with engine.

    Either way, during the take-off roll you don't have time to get the books out so you brief RTO before take-off and stick to the plan in the event it is required.

    No need to enlarge words or put them in bold. Nor is it necessary to waffle.

    I agree that your assumptions and thought processes are alarmingly naive. You have based the causes (in your own damaged mind) on the damage being done after the pilots aborted the take off. If there was nothing wrong prior to that, why would they abort?
    Your tiny brain didn’t think it through did it.

    Generally, planes stay on the runway during take off. Although the area either side is normally well manicured.

    The "damage" was the:

    Everything else was after that.

    The effect, on the up till then normal take-off was, reportedly:

    the plane leaving the runway to its right, a wing dropping, an engine dropping off and at some stage, one or more fires. Followed by an evacuation.

    What caused the abnormality and reported sequential five events, I will leave to qualified crash investigators to report.

    China Eastern crash probe eyes intentional action - sources



    WASHINGTON, May 17 (Reuters) - Investigators probing the crash of a China Eastern Airlines (600115.SS) jet are examining whether it was due to intentional action taken on the flight deck, with no evidence so far of a technical malfunction, two people briefed on the matter said.


    The Wall Street Journal reported earlier Tuesday that flight data from one the Boeing 737-800's black boxes indicated that someone in the cockpit intentionally crashed the plane, citing people familiar with U.S. officials' preliminary assessment.

    Boeing Co (BA.N), the maker of the jet, and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) declined to comment and referred questions to Chinese regulators.


    The Boeing 737-800, en route from Kunming to Guangzhou, crashed on March 21 in the mountains of Guangxi, after a sudden plunge from cruising altitude, killing all 123 passengers and nine crew members aboard.


    It was mainland China's deadliest aviation disaster in 28 years.

    Thai Airways Posts a 155% Increase in Revenue


    THAI Airways International has posted a 155% increase in revenue and a narrower loss in the first quarter of this year, with liquidity surging to the highest point since the company filed for bankruptcy in 2020.


    On Tuesday, the carrier announced its first-quarter revenue totaled 1.1 billion baht, up 155% from the same period last year.

    An improvement in the airline’s performance is attributable to an increase in passenger and cargo traffic following the reopening of borders and the lifting of public health restrictions.


    THAI Airways International and its subsidiaries posted a first-quarter loss of 3.2 billion baht, down from 8.9 billion baht a year ago. There was a loss of 1.49 baht per share, compared to a loss of 5.59 baht per share in the first quarter of last year.


    The demand for international travel has increased significantly since the beginning of the year. Since the beginning of the month, Thailand’s entry rules have been relaxed, and Test & Go has been scrapped.


    THAI also announced that it, and its subsidiary Thai Smile Airways, have increased or restored flight frequencies to many destinations.


    Thai Airways booking


    These include the Bangkok-London route returning to 14 flights per week from the current 11 weekly flights from May 29.


    Bangkok-Frankfurt flights will also increase from 10 weekly flights to 14 weekly flights beginning June 25. The number of flights to India, Pakistan, and Asean will also increase.

    The financially strapped Thai Airways has sold or is in the process of selling 45 aircraft, leaving it with just 58 aircraft, excluding three 777-300 extended range aircraft that it leased recently.
