A firefighting plane under contract with the U.S. Forest Service landed nose down on a Fresno Yosemite International Airport runway Sunday night in an emergency landing, airport officials said. The plane was on its way back from Lake Isabella in Kern County and headed to the Porterville Air Attack Base when the pilot noticed a hydraulic warning on the instrument panel, Fresno Yosemite International Airport spokeswoman Rhonda Jorn said. The pilot decided to land in Fresno to use the airport's emergency vehicles. About 8:30 p.m. the plane landed nose down just as the hydraulic system failed, Jorn said. The pilot and passenger were not injured and refused medical treatment, she said. A Porterville Air Attack Base official said the plane was under contract to the U.S. Forest Service. The plane was towed to the Cal Fire base at the airport, Jorn said. One of the airport's runways was shut down for a while, but operations were not significantly affected, she said.

Authorities say a twin engine float plane crashed and burned at the summit of Lost Trail Pass Tuesday evening. But the plane is so destroyed Ravalli County Sheriff's deputies aren't able to immediately identify the exact type of aircraft or how many people may have been on board. Emergency crews were called to the pass on the Idaho-Montana border around 5:30 p.m. with report that a plane had crashed in the parking lot at the summit. But when they arrived on scene they found the plane had completely burned. Ravalli County Undersheriff Steve Holton tells MTN the plane was so damaged by the fire they've been unable to read the identifying registration numbers on the tail and say it appears to have been an amphibious aircraft. They've also been unable to tell how many victims may have died in the crash. Holton says the Sheriff's Office is working with the FAA to try and identify the aircraft and where it may have been flying from and what its destination was. He expects FAA inspectors to arrive in the morning and start gathering initial data to determine the cause of the crash. The wreckage is in the rest area parking lot so traffic on Highway 93 isn't effected.
Also NOTE - In the above notes some aviation accidents under investigation mention the (US) investigation body, the NTSB. Authors of this book on the plane "accident" that killed Sen. Paul Wellstone talk about the career path of many NTSB heads coming straight out of the US intel. community, CIA etc.
Emergency crews are on the scene after a plane crashed into a home in Suak Rapids Friday evening, according to authorities. Witnesses tell KARE 11 the pilot survived the crash. It is unclear if anyone was home at the time of the crash. KARE will have more details as they become available.
A US military jet was forced to make an emergency landing at Shannon last night after suffering technical problems while on approach to the airport. The United States Air Force Boeing C-40, a military variation of the popular Boeing 737 jet, was on approach to the airport when the crew declared an emergency. It's understood that an issue arose with the jet's flaps while the crew was configuring the aircraft for landing. The crew requested permission to enter a holding pattern to see if they could resolve the issue. The pilot confirmed there were 23 people on board. However, it wasn't clear last night whether there were any US government officials or other dignitaries on board. Engineers were investigating the issue last night.
Germany ... this might be pilot error -OR- mechanical failure ....

A Kaohsiung-bound China Airlines passenger flight from Osaka was forced to make an emergency landing in Okinawa at 2:36 p.m. Thursday after the 737-800 jet was found to be leaking fuel, the airliner said. Flight CI167 took off from Kansai International Airport in Osaka at 12:43 p.m. (Japan time) carrying 154 passengers and was originally scheduled to land at Kaohsiung International Airport at 2:50 p.m. (Taipei time), said China Airlines, Taiwan's largest carrier. The flight's pilots decided to make the emergency landing at Naha Airport in Okinawa when the discovered fuel levels dropping abnormally quickly. China Airlines has made dining arrangements for passengers on CI167 ahead of a later scheduled flight to take them to Taiwan.
A British Airways Boeing 747-400, registration G-CIVO performing flight BA-209 from London Heathrow,EN (UK) to Miami,FL (USA), was enroute at FL340 over the Atlantic Ocean about one hour into the crossing when the crew reported smoke in the cabin and decided to turn around and divert to Shannon (Ireland). The aircraft descended to FL280 for the flight back.

Police say two Ryanair jets have collided at London's Stansted Airport, but none of the crew members or passengers were injured. Essex police said they conducted "routine breath tests" on both pilots after the incident early Saturday morning but there were no signs of alcohol. They said no further police action is planned. Ryanair spokesman Robin Kiely said the wing tip of one plane and the tail cone of another "made contact" while one plane was approaching the stand and the other was pushing back. He said passengers were put on other planes after a three-hour delay. Airport spokesman Chris Wiggan said both planes were damaged and the Air Accident Investigation Board is handling the inquiry. He said the airport was operating normally despite the incident.
Pictured: Terrifying moment escape chute went off INSIDE United flight in mid-air forcing emergency landing in Wichita

A Jet.com plane flying from East Midlands Airport to Heraklion in Crete has made an emergency landing at Manchester Airport. The jet took off at 5.40pm but was then recorded as circling over the Peak District before landing just before 7pm at Manchester. A fault with the aircraft is believed to be behind the decision to divert the flight to the region’s airport. The flight was reported as having landed safely.
For the second time in as many months, two planes near Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport came close to colliding mid-air before air traffic controllers corrected their courses, averting potential disaster. The most recent incident occurred Thursday just before 7 p.m. A Singapore Airlines 777, a jumbo jet, flew within 200 feet vertically and within about more than half-mile horizontally of a Delta Airlines A320. That's a separation of about eight football fields horizontally. Federal Aviation Administration rules say that aircraft must remain separated a half-mile vertically and 3 miles horizontally. FAA officials are currently investigating the incident. The planes were 10 miles northeast of the airport, according to the FAA's Lynn Lunsford. "An air traffic controller noticed the deviation and issued traffic alerts and instructions to the pilots of both aircraft. The FAA is still determining the closest proximity between the two flights," said Lunsford Saturday. "As a result of a preliminary analysis of the event, the FAA has taken steps to ensure that all flight crews are aware of the top altitudes for standard departure routes," he said. In late May the FAA was investigating an incident where two passenger jets came close to a collision in the skies above Houston earlier that month on May 9. An air traffic controller's mistake put one aircraft directly in the path of another. Live air traffic control reports for the May incident revealed the controller telling United Flight 601, which had just taken off, to turn right, putting it in the path of Flight 437. At the closest, the two airliners were about 0.87 miles apart with about 400 vertical feet separating them, officials said.
A U.S. Air Force KC-135 air refueling plane has made an emergency landing on the runway at Sawyer International Airport in the central Upper Peninsula. Greg Peterson tells The Associated Press he watched the landing about 5 p.m. Tuesday and says it appeared to be completely normal. WVUP-TV in Ishpeming says the plane had 6,000 gallons of fuel and a crew of three aboard. The station says the plane was from Milwaukee and was taking part in a touch-and-go landing drill when it had a hydraulic problem. The airport is in Marquette County's Forsyth Township and is at the site of the former K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base, which operated from 1956 to 1995. Sawyer Manager Duane DuRay says the plane radioed air controllers about 25 minutes before touching down.
A Delta flight made an emergency landing Wednesday night at McGhee Tyson airport. Airport officials say pilots reported smoke coming from the plane and decided to make an unscheduled landing at McGhee Tyson. No one was hurt and crews are working to figure out what the problem is. However, officials could not say where the flight originated from or where it was headed.
CNN - United flight diverted to remote Midway Island due to odor
(CNN) -- A harrowing United Airlines flight Friday over the Pacific Ocean was forced to land on remote Midway Island because of what an FAA official said was an electrical odor on board.
The United Airlines plane, carrying 335 passengers and 13 crew on a Boeing 777, was flying from Honolulu to Guam when it was forced to land and spend seven hours on the Pacific atoll, said United spokeswoman Mary Clark. A replacement aircraft later carried everyone back to Hawaii on Friday, she said.
When explicitly asked Saturday whether the disturbing smell was smoke or something burning, Clark described the incident as an odor in the cabin.
A passenger, Karen von Merveldt-Guevara of Sedona, Arizona, said the pilot spoke of smoke and failure to the radar and other systems. . . (more)
