    An Atlas Air Boeing 747 Freighter nearly became a casualty after if flew within 670 feet of a mountain in Hong Kong recently. The incident happened to a Boeing 747-8F on climbout from Hong Kong International Airport back on September 24th. Air traffic control informed the crew that the aircraft was off track, and told them to turn left to resume the standard instrument departure (SID). This was followed by a request to "expedite the climb to 5,000ft.". The Atlas Air freighter is registered N856GT.

    British Hybrid Airship has suffered yet another set back with their Airlander Airship. The aircraft broke loose from its mooring mast at the homebase in England during wet and windy conditions. The airship looks a complete wreck and this is the second serious incident during this test program. It casts a serious blow and now the development of this airship may have serious problems in the future. The Airlander only returned to the air in May of this year after suffering a bad accident last year.

    The Bombardier Challenger 604 that was involved in the Airbus A380 wake turbulence incident has been written off and now sold for parts. The aircraft recently was flown to Germany on an Antonov An-124 transporter where a German company will use it for spare parts for its small fleet of similar model Challenger aircraft. The G-stresses that the airframe undertook during the incident rendered the plane unsafe to continue service. The aircraft was previously operated by MHI and was sold to FAI Germany which has a fleet of six Challengers.

    JFK Airport just cannot stay out of the news whether it is for the weather, accidents, burst main in Terminal 4 or stranded passengers fighting. A Kuwait Airways Boeing 777-300ER suffered damage after its tailcone was destroyed from the wing tip of a China Southern Boeing 777-300ER. The Kuwait Airways aircraft was at the gate parked before it was scheduled to depart for Kuwait when the accident happened. No one was injured in the event, the passengers were taken off the planes and accommodated at hotels while alternate flights were arranged.

    A Scoot Boeing 787 cabin door was damaged while the aircraft was at Changi International Airport in Singapore. Apparently, the chocks were taken off the aircraft while the brakes were not ON allowing the jet to roll back a few meters as it was still at the jetway. That subsequently ripped the L2 door from it's hinges. Photo By Jetline Marvel

    A Flexjet Embraer Phenom 300 was damaged when it suffered a runway excursion recently. Six persons were onboard at the time of the incident and none were reported injured as a result. The jet was flying from Oakland International Airport and landed at Bend Municipal Airport in Oregon. The jet was coming to the end of its landing roll when it reportedly slowly skidded approximately 10-yards off the runway. The NTSB is currently investigating. The aircraft involved in the incident is said to be registered N354FX.
