The Boeing 777-300ER with registration B-16707 was operating flight BR10 from Taipei, Taiwan to Vancouver, Canada. However, due to heavy snow and low visibility in Vancouver, the aircraft skidded off the icy part of the taxiway M5.  After skidding the taxiway, the aircraft’s nosegear got stuck in the mud adjacent to the taxiway. At that moment, snowfall hindered the air traffic. No one was injured in the incident and the aircraft didn’t sustain damage.

Eva Air confirmed the incident saying, “Our company’s Taipei-Vancouver flight BR10 landed safely at 18:42 local time on November 29. The visibility was poor due to the heavy snow in the area. The nose wheel of the aircraft deviated from the taxiway surface, but both the crew and the plane were safe.”

The fence did it's job.

BATESVILLE, Ark. (KAIT) - A plane crash in Batesville Tuesday evening nearly ended in the middle of a busy highway.

Viewer Kristina K Praught sent in photos of the scene. In the photos, the plane is seen just feet from Highway 167.
Batesville Police Chief Alan Cockrill said several people, including two pilots, were on board the plane when it crashed. Both pilots were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  According to the Federal Aviation Administration’s preliminary incident report, the Learjet 45 landed, went off the end of the runway, and through the airport fence.

In addition to the pilots, five passengers were on board at the time of the accident.

The FAA said the plane is owned by Jett Aircraft.

With the mentioned specs, I think it can last 30 minutes.

Apilot survived a small plane crash in a Utah canyon over the weekend and hiked about six miles to call for help, officials said.

The twin-tailed pusher-propeller aircraft crash-landed near Durst Mountain several miles up Cottonwood Canyon Road, the Mountain Green Fire Protection District said.

The pilot “made a skilled forced landing” and “miraculously walked away” from the crash, according to officials, before hiking for two hours to find cell service to call 911.

After triangulating the pilot’s location, rescuers used ATVs to reach the crash site due to the difficult terrain, fire officials said.

“Normally with these situations, we have a great deal of difficulty finding the aircraft or the people,” Mountain Green Fire Chief Brian Brendel told KSL News. “In this case, he just kind of got out of his plane, dusted himself off and walked himself down this ATV road until he got into cell phone range.”No injuries were reported and Brendel commended the pilot for bringing down the aircraft “pretty much in one piece.” The airplane landed near Durst Mountain through a "skilled force landing."

The plane had taken off from the Morgan County Airport located in Mountain Green, the outlet reported. It was reportedly traveling to somewhere in Idaho.

Officials did not immediately provide any details about what caused the crash or where the pilot was flying.


Moments before a small private airplane crashed into power lines in Maryland on Sunday evening, air traffic controllers urgently warned the pilot that the aircraft was flying too low, according to archived recordings.

“N201RF, if you hear this transmission, low altitude alert,” said a controller from Potomac Terminal Radar Approach Control in the transmission recording, accessed from

The controller repeated the current air pressure to give the pilot a more accurate read of his height above sea level.

Earlier in the flight, the pilot apparently missed assigned directives from the controller who explained he was worried the single-engine Mooney airplane would stray into the path of commercial flights approaching nearby Washington Dulles International Airport.

Air traffic control recordings detail that the pilot was cleared for an approach to land at Montgomery County Airpark in Gaithersburg by sole reference to instruments in the airplane, not outside visual cues. The weather at the time of the crash was reported as poor with low clouds and bad visibility.The two were stuck in the plane for nearly seven hours after it crashed into power lines and a utility tower in Montgomery County, Maryland, according to fire chief Scott Goldstein.

Both were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, including orthopedic and trauma injuries from the crash and hypothermia, Goldstein said. At a later news conference he said their conditions had improved and one person had been released.

The rescue began at 5:30 p.m. when crews responded to reports of a small airplane that had flown into the power lines, according to Pete Piringer, chief spokesperson for Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service.

When units arrived at the scene, they found a small plane “embedded” in the tower about 100 feet above the ground after striking the lines from another, nearby tower, according to officials.

“The aircraft did strike the power lines of the north tower (while on approach to an airport) before it then collided with and became embedded in the structure of the south tower,” Goldstein said Monday.
Fire authorities talked with the pilot and passenger throughout the rescue and nearby roads were closed, according to officials. The crash scene is about 4 miles northwest of the Montgomery County Airpark, state police said.

Rescuers had to wait for the tower to be “grounded or bonded” before they could get to the duo in the plane, Goldstein told reporters Sunday evening. They were also concerned the plane might shift, but it didn’t as it seems it was held in place by the tower, Piringer added Monday.

It involved crews ascending to put clamps or cables onto the wires to make sure there was no static electricity or residual power, the chief said. The airplane also needed to be secured to the tower structure, he said. Foggy weather conditions made matters more complicated, he added.

A utility contractor finished grounding power lines near the plane at 11:30 p.m., Goldstein said, and the contractor helped rescue crews secure the plane within the next 45 minutes. .

Crews used a cherry picker – in this case, a truck with a 170-foot crane with a platform to lift humans – to reach the people trapped, according to photos tweeted by Piringer.

The first person was removed from the plane at 12:25 a.m. and the second person was removed about 10 minutes later, Goldstein said.
About 120,000 customers were without power Sunday evening following the crash, but all impacted customers had their power restored as of early Monday, according to the Pepco utility company, which provides electric service to roughly 894,000 homes and businesses in Washington, DC, and surrounding areas in Maryland. Montgomery County is just north of Washington, DC.

Schools in Montgomery County will be closed Monday due to power outages, district officials said Sunday night.

The district earlier said more than 40 schools in the Montgomery County Public Schools system and six central offices were without power, affecting services such as maintenance, buses and food service.

Two hospitals, MedStar Montgomery Medical Center and Holy Cross Hospital, operated in a limited capacity Sunday evening due to the power outage, Goldstein said.

Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration and leadership from Maryland State Police were on scene, Goldstein said Sunday night. The FAA put an aircraft restriction in place during rescue efforts, state police said.

The FAA said the aircraft departed from Westchester County Airport in New York. The agency will assist the National Transportation Safety Board, which identified the plane’s model as a Mooney M20J, with its investigation.

Thank you to the feed provider/providers for the Atlanta feed, however there are a few issues that I ran into the last time I was listening.

1) KATL Ground (Rwys 8/26) feed takes a long time to load and is very choppy once it does. Seems like about one in every three words is audible on the feed. If there is a way to improve the audio quality that would be very much appreciated!
2) KATL Departure (Rwys 8/26) frequency has changed. After looking at both Jepp and government charts, the new departure frequency is 133.475.
3) Also looking at the IAP charts, it appears there is a new approach frequency of 127.9. Would be great if that could be added.

Thank you very much!
