Passengers of an Emirates flight were startled to discover a large hole in the side of the plane as they disembarked in Australia following a lengthy flight from Dubai.

The Airbus A380 landed in Brisbane on 1 July following the near-14 hour flight from Emirates' main hub, during which pilots are said to have contacted Air Traffic Control to report a suspected issue.

Crew on board the plane told the authority they suspected they had blown a tyre while taking off from Dubai and requested to be met by emergency services when they landed, the Aviation Herald reports.

Passengers heard the incident take place either during or shortly after takeoff, with one passenger telling Australia’s Courier Mail he heard a worrying noise about 45 minutes into the flight, The Independent reports.

"There was a loud bang and I felt it through the floor as well,” he said, adding: "The cabin crew remained calm, stopped the food service and got on the phone and checked the wings, engines.”

Another passenger speaking to the publication recalled how passengers were told they would have to land on a different runway and have an engineer inspect the plane 'for a suspected landing gear problem', but when the aircraft landed the issue quickly became clear.

Thanks for the update Dave. Hopefully it gets up and running without issues.
We're working on a new feed setup for RIC. Stand by for more information within the next few weeks hopefully.

The update is that we're not yet in a new hosting location for BNA. We hope to be in by September/October time frame.
Aviation News (General) / World's fastest passenger jet goes supersonic in tests
« Last post by KB4TEZ on July 01, 2022, 06:28:06 AM »

The race to resume supersonic passenger flights nearly two decades after the retirement of Concorde was offered a glimmer of excitement on Monday when plane manufacturer Bombardier revealed high speed achievements while confirming the launch of its new business jet.

The Canadian company said the in-development Global 8000 will be “the world’s fastest and longest-range purpose-built business jet.”

With a capacity for up to 19 passengers, a range of 8,000 nautical miles (14,800 kilometers) and a top speed of Mach 0.94, the upcoming plane is expected to enter service in 2025, according to a statement from Bombardier.

The news comes after a Global 7500 test vehicle broke the sound barrier during a demonstration flight last May, achieving speeds of more than Mach 1.015.
Supersonic breakthrough
The aircraft, accompanied by a NASA F/A-18 chase plane, also became the first Transport Category airplane to fly supersonic with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) as a result of the flight, says Bombardier.

“The Global 8000 aircraft leverages the outstanding attributes of the Global 7500 aircraft, providing our customers with a flagship aircraft of a new era,” Éric Martel, president and CEO for Bombardier, said in a statement released on Monday.

Flight testing for the Global 8000 has already begun on Global 7500 flight-test vehicles. Bombardier says the upcoming aircraft will also have a cabin altitude equivalent to 2,900 feet.

Global 8000 is just one of many developments in the numerous efforts to raise the speed of passenger aircraft more than two decades after Concorde retired.

Last year, United Airlines announced it could be offering supersonic routes as early as 2029 after striking a deal to buy 15 supersonic jets.

Meanwhile, Colorado-based Boom Supersonic has been completing ground testing on X-B1, the prototype aircraft for its Overture jet, designed to seat between 65 and 88 people, which aims to fly on over 500 mainly transoceanic routes that will benefit from the aircraft’s Mach-2.2 speeds.

Sadly, Florida-based aviation startup Aerion collapsed months after revealing plans for a Mach 4+ commercial airliner named Aerion AS3 last year.

On Saturday 25 June, a United Airlines aircraft (registration and type currently unknown) was being push-backed but clipped its right wing with a parked Boeing 737-900 (registered N39423) from the same airline. The incident happened at Newark airport, United States.

Nobody got injured during the mishap and passengers got rescheduled on other flights.

Two people and a dog were rescued by good Samaritans after their plane crashed into the Quinnipiac River in New Haven, officials said.

City officials said two occupants and a dog were on board. They're all out of the plane and were brought ashore to a local boatyard.New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker said the plane originated from Florida and had just stopped in Woodbine, New Jersey.

Authorities said the plane was in route to New Bedford, Massachusetts, when the engine started to sputter. The aircraft operator spoke with tower operations and were told to try and land at Tweed Airport in New Haven, but they felt they couldn't make it there and landed in the river instead.A man, woman and dog were all aboard the plane and good Samaritans helped get them out. The Samaritans were on a sandbar in the river at the time of the crash and were in close proximity to help the passengers, according to officials.

Assistant Fire Chief Justin McCarthy said the call came in around 5:20 p.m. Once the passengers got to shore, crews evaluated them. The man and woman are shaken up from the incident, but officials said they're going to be okay.

Authorities said they're primarily focused on the environmental impact at this time. There were about 55 gallons of fluid on the plane when it crashed.

Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officials said the plane is currently positioned on protected oyster beds.

"Its exact location has been recorded, and floating bags will be applied so that it can be moved from the oyster beds and towed to a nearby dock, where the FAA and NTSB can conduct their investigation," a DEEP spokesperson said.

A small amount of fuel leaked out from the breather vent, but DEEP officials said the environmental impact is deemed minimal. There are sorbent booms in place and ready to be deployed, according to the spokesperson.
