(picture says it all, WOW!)

An Austrian Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration OE-LBM performing flight OS-434 from Palma Mallorca,SP (Spain) to Vienna (Austria), was descending through about FL200 about 60nm southsouthwest of Vienna when the aircraft encountered hail. The crew continued for a safe landing on Vienna's runway 11 about 20 minutes later.

Austria's Unwetterzentrale (UWZ) reported the aircraft had a "date" with a thunderstorm cell over Hartberg, Styria, in about 6000 meters of altitude. After a "blind flight" the aircraft landed safely.

The airline reported the aircraft entered a thunderstorm cell that was not visible on the weather radar. Both windshields, the nose/radome as well as several panels were damaged. The crew declared Mayday and continued for a safe landing. All on board remained uninjured.

(Now the audio isn't the best, but it's Bridgetown, Barbados !!!  Amazed really.)

A JetBlue flight bound for Boston was forced to make a return to Bridgetown, Barbados after experiencing an engine failure after takeoff on 4 June 2024.  Flight crew immediately terminated the climb and declared an emergency with transponder code 7700.

Negative, that is not what happened! No engine failure at all ...

(with a few of the freqs down at KDEN, took a bit of time to piece it together)

A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700, registration N933WN performing flight WN-225 from Denver,CO to Phoenix,AZ (USA) with 137 people on board, was climbing out of Denver's runway 25 when the crew stopped the climb at 10,000 feet reporting they were now an emergency aircraft and they needed to return to Denver due to the loss of a hydraulic system. The aircraft landed safely back on Denver's runway 34L about 30 minutes after departure.

The airline reported one of the tyres failed on departure, the aircraft has redundant hydraulic systems.

Passengers reported there was a loud noise during takeoff, subsequently they were instructed to brace for landing. The crew told them, a tyre had burst on departure taking one of the hydraulic systems out.

(Now the audio isn't the best, but it's Bridgetown, Barbados !!!  Amazed really.)

A JetBlue flight bound for Boston was forced to make a return to Bridgetown, Barbados after experiencing an engine failure after takeoff on 4 June 2024.  Flight crew immediately terminated the climb and declared an emergency with transponder code 7700.

The flight then negotiated a direct return to the origin airport of Bridgetown (BGI), Barbados.  Flight data shows that flight B61844 bound for Boston Logan International Airport made a delayed departure out of Bridgetown.

The flight shows an actual time of departure of 1838 local time against the scheduled departure time of 1243 local time on 4 June.  The aircraft was only approximately 10 minutes out from its departure when the climb was terminated and flight crew squawked code 7700.

The JetBlue flight then conducted a wide circuit for a direct return to Sir Grantley Adams International Airport.

The aircraft conducting the B61844 rotation to Boston was an Airbus A320-200 aircraft, registered N586JB. This is a 20 year old narrowbody aircraft belonging to the US carrier JetBlue Airways.

Could be a number of reasons... maybe they activated it as a training sector or maybe they were doing maintenance on the 133.425 site.  ZBW and ZNY have been using spare frequencies a lot lately, in fact, ZNY is simulcasting on 121.125 at this moment but the controller is still working on 133.5

(Whatever broke, it did so quickly.  Thoughts and prayers with the family.  RIP)

AUBURN, Wash. — A deadly plane crash happened just after noon Thursday in Auburn.

The small plane slammed into a business – all but the plane’s tail going through the roof.

“All of a sudden, the walls shook and there’s a big bang and alarms went off,” said T.J. Stuefen, a witness.  “Couldn’t even open the door – all the debris had pushed up against the door. We tried to open the door because we thought there was a third person here, but luckily he’s gone, and as soon as we did that, there was a big smell of gas, and we figured we better get the hell out of here,” said Stuefen.

The employees safely escaped.

Investigators say the pilot was the only one on board the Van’s RV-12, a type of homebuilt plane.

“They brought him out. They just had him on a stretcher – they weren’t working on him. He unfortunately didn’t make it – sad,” said Stuefen.

There was no fire, but emergency crews worked quickly to take care of fuel leaking from the plane.  Norgren GT Development, which helps make big rig parts, operated out of the building, which Stuefen says was getting cleared out because the business is moving out of the area. That’s why there were only a couple of people inside.

Asked if he felt lucky to safely get out, Stuefen replied, “Oh, absolutely. It was 40 feet from my office and I just had walked through there.”

No word on the pilot’s identity or what led up to the crash.

It’s unclear where he took off from or his destination, but the Auburn Municipal Airport is nearby.

It’s also uncertain when the plane will be removed from the building.

The FAA and NTSB are now investigating.
