« Last post by KB4TEZ on August 11, 2022, 05:49:52 AM »
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — A man threatened to harm himself at Palm Beach International Airport on Wednesday morning, even telling the crowded airport he had a device in his luggage.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office responded to a 911 call regarding a man threatening to harm himself at Palm Beach International Airport.

Deputies say they arrived at the airport at around 10:30 a.m., after finding the man on the third-level, by the departing area and ticket counters, they attempted to speak to him. That's when they said the man mention he had a device in his luggage, fearing the worst-case scenario, the third-level was immediately shutdown and evacuated.
The sheriff's office said they were able to apprehend the man and the PBSO Bomb & Arson Squad were called in, nothing was found and they deemed the area safe.

PBSO says the man is being held under the Baker Act and will be charged with making a false report concerning planning a bomb and explosive for a weapon of mass destruction and trespass.

My apologies on the outage with the KTPK feed.   We went on vacation, and I decided to turn off all of my UPS's/network prior to leaving.   Completely forgot about the PTK feed when I did that.   We'll be home on Friday and it will be back up then.

not that those jump seats have a lot of give to them, but wow.

DALLAS (AP) — A Southwest Airlines flight attendant suffered a compression fracture to a vertebra in her upper back during a hard landing last month in California, according to federal safety investigators.

The National Transportation Safety Board said the impact of landing was so hard that the flight attendant thought the plane had crashed. She felt pain in her back and neck and could not move, and was taken to a hospital where she was diagnosed with the fracture.

The safety board completed its investigation without saying what caused the hard landing.

The NTSB said none of the other 141 people on board the plane were injured in the incident at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California.
The pilots told investigators that they were aiming for the normal touchdown zone on the relatively short runway.

"However, it ended up being a firm landing," the NTSB said in its final report, dated Friday.

Dallas-based Southwest said in a statement Monday: "We reported the matter to the NTSB in accordance with regulatory requirements and conducted an internal review of the event."

A spokeswoman for the airline declined to provide further information when asked about the result of the internal investigation and whether the plane was inspected for evidence of damage that could occur during a hard landing. The plane has been making several flights a day, according to tracking services.

Shortly after the 18-year-old Boeing 737-700 taxied off the runway, the pilots — a 55-year-old captain and 49-year-old co-pilot — were told about the injury to the flight attendant, who was in a jump seat at the back of the plane.

The NTSB, which did not travel to the accident site, has not made its documents from the investigation publicly available.

The runway that the plane landed on is only 5,700 feet long (1,700 meters). By comparison, runways at nearby Los Angeles International Airport range between 8,900 and nearly 13,000 feet (2,700 to 3,900 meters).

The NTSB investigation was reported earlier by The Dallas Morning News.

Lasers are one thing, drones are another.

A Southwest Airlines pilot reported seeing a drone flying 2000-feet over Orlando International Airport Thursday afternoon.

Moments later, a Delta Airlines pilot reported that the same drone narrowly missed their windshield by 8-feet.

The FAA limits the altitude of drone flight to 400 feet and areas around airports are highly restricted air space.

The incident was captured on the conversation between the pilots and Orlando’s air traffic control.
The Boeing 777F, with registration A7-BFH, sustained a severe dent on its right-hand wing leading edge. The aircraft arrived as flight QR8141 from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

“Qatar Airways can confirm that a cargo aircraft, QR8141, operating from Atlanta to Chicago, came into touch with a light post while taxiing at Chicago O’Hare and received some wing damage,” Qatar Airways spokesperson said.

According to an airline representative, no crew members were injured in the incident and the incident is being investigated.

(thanks AVH, I've attached the audio)
second audio is the Grand Junction Landing

An American Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration N165US performing flight AA-2065 from Dallas Ft. Worth,TX to Salt Lake City,UT (USA) with 170 people on board, was enroute at FL340 about 10nm south of Grand Junction Airport,CO (USA) when the left hand engine suffered a series of compressor stalls prompting the crew to shut the engine down, declare emergency and divert to Grand Junction Airport. The aircraft landed safely on Grand Junction Airport's runway 29 and stopped on the runway for an inspection of the left hand engine by emergency services.

A replacement Airbus A321-200 registration N556UW reached Salt Lake City with a total delay of 11.5 hours.

The airline reported a possible mechanical problem prompted the diversion to Grand Junction.

The LAX Ground North feed doesn’t appear to have any audio. On LAX Ground North/South you can hear the north controller, but not on the designated north ground feed.

Thank you
