F-35 fleet cleared to fly after June engine fire prompted grounding
(CNN) -- The Pentagon's most expensive weapons program ever, the F-35 warplane, is cleared for takeoff again.
The limited flight clearance, approved by Navy and Air Force officials Monday, allows the aircraft to fly with an engine inspection regimen and restricted flight envelope following the fleet's grounding after an engine fire last month.
Defense Department spokesman Mark Wright said in a statement Tuesday the restrictions would "remain in effect until the root cause of the June 23 engine mishap is identified and corrected." . . . (more)
A JetBlue flight had to make an emergency landing at Logan International Airport in East Boston on Monday afternoon, according to news reports. JetBlue spokeswoman Real Hamilton-Romeo told the Boston Globe that flight 1668 was carrying 95 passengers from Charleston International Airport in South Carolina when the cockpit crew received word of a mechanical problem. Massport's emergency response team met the flight when it landed safely just before 3:30 p.m. The plane was towed to the gate "out of an abundance of caution" after being evaluated on the runway, NECN reports. Officials on the ground were prepared for the worst. At about 3 p.m., Boston EMS officials tweeted that units were en route to the airport's North Gate after receiving word that the plane was experiencing brake and steering issues. However, there were no reported injuries in the incident, which remains under investigation by the FAA. Preliminary findings indicate the flight experienced an avionics problem before landing, the Globe reports. Avionic equipment can range from control, monitoring, communication, navigation, weather and anti-collision systems, among other cockpit devices.
A Southwest Airlines plane coming from the Baltimore and Washington area makes an emergency landing at Port Columbus International Airport overnight. Airport officials tell ABC 6 that the pilots of Southwest Airlines Flight 424 received a smoke indication in the forward cargo hold. The plane was heading to Chicago-Midway at the time of the notification, but the plane's captain declared an emergency and landed safely in Columbus. Emergency vehicles met the aircraft on the taxiway. All five crew members and 49 passengers were evacuated. Southwest Airlines says they determined smoke was found in the forward cargo hold. The airplane is out of service until further inspections. Southwest Airlines says all passengers were transferred to another flight to Chicago-Midway.
To demonstrate the proof of principle with ion beams instead of conventional reaction irradiation, the team of researchers preloaded reactor components of ferritic-martensitic steel with atoms of helium gas, to simulate alpha particles. They irradiated the samples with an ion beam from a particle accelerator at 5 million electronvolts energy and a temperature of 460 degrees Celsius for several hours, and after which used transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to characterize the damage caused by the energetic ions penetrating the steel and observed microscopic holes(voids), dislocations and precipitates within the steel - none of which were present before ion irradiation.
Comparing this ion-beam damage with that seen in actual components of the same batch of steel used in a sodium fast reactor during the period 1985-1992, it was found that the types of defects (as well as their sizes and numbers) caused by neutron bombardment from the nuclear reaction to be closely reproduced by that with the ion beam experiments.
Plane With Unconscious Pilot Breaches D.C. Airspace, Then Crashes Into Atlantic
The pilot of a small airplane apparently lost consciousness while flying Saturday afternoon and flew into restricted airspace over Washington, D.C., before crashing into the Atlantic Ocean, federal officials said.
Emergency crews responded to Westover Air Reserve Base after an in-flight emergency was reported aboard an incoming C-5 cargo plane. The emergency happened around 2 p.m. Tuesday. Officials from the base told CBS 3 the aircraft was flying in locally when the pilot reported an emergency. The plane was able to land safely at the base without incident. Officials said it appeared the emergency was minor, but the plane will undergo a full inspection. . . .
Japan - Steel plant explosion - from Wigner effect??
Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal facility
At least thirteen people were injured on Wednesday (Sep 3) after an explosion at a steel plant in central Japan, an official said, the latest in a series of accidents at the site. Television pictures showed clouds of black smoke billowing from the Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal facility in Tokai, where 3,000 employees were engaged in producing steel sheets and pipes. A spokesman for the Aichi prefectural police said the fire department had been alerted to a problem at the plant at 12.46pm (11.46am, Singapore time). A Tokyo-based spokeswoman for the world's number-two steelmaker said 13 people were injured, "nine of them employees (of Nippon Steel) and four of them employees of its partner companies". At least six people were taken to hospital, private broadcaster Nippon TV reported, saying the injuries were not life-threatening. Another local report said 15 people were injured, three of them severely. "There was a small explosion that was caused by a fire at a coke oven," a Tokai city official told AFP, adding he did not know about the severity of the injuries. The explosion came after other fire troubles earlier this year.... (more)
