(OMG! - thoughts go to the family and all involved)

An airline has issued a statement after a person was sucked into a plane engine and killed at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.

According to local media, authorities were alerted at around 3.00pm local time this afternoon (29 May) to reports someone had been caught in the engine of a KLM Cityhopper Embraer E190.

It is also reported that passengers and crew members were on board the plane when the tragedy happened, set to fly from Amsterdam to Billund, Denmark.

A Royal Military Police account in the Netherlands wrote on X: “An incident occurred this afternoon on the Schiphol platform where a person fell into a running aircraft engine and died.” It added that an investigation has been launched.
"Our thoughts go out to the relatives and we care for the passengers and colleagues who witnessed this,” it wrote.

"The Royal Military Police is currently conducting an investigation."

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the airline which operates the plane involved, shared the following statement: “A fatal incident took place at Schiphol today during which a person ended up in a running aircraft engine.

"Sadly, this person has died. The flight concerned was KL1341 bound for Billund.

“We are currently taking care of the passengers and employees who witnessed the incident at Schiphol. The circumstances are currently under investigation.

"For further information – once available – we refer you to the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee.”

Dutch minister for infrastructure, Mark Harbers, said: "Terrible news about a fatal accident today at Schiphol. My condolences go out to the relatives of the victim and the people who witnessed the accident."
The Marechaussee had confirmed that passengers and crew were on board the KLM flight where someone was sucked into the engine, and that they had been taken off the aircraft in the aftermath of the death.

A trio of investigators from the Dutch Safety Board have been dispatched to the airport to look into the matter.

An American Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N812AW performing flight AA-2134 from Washington National,DC to Boston,MA (USA), was cleared for takeoff from runway 01.

At the same time a King Air was cleared to land on crossing runway 33.

Tower finally noticed the developing conflict and cancelled the takeoff clearance for AA-2134 and instructed the King Air to go around. AA-2134 rejected takeoff at about 80 KIAS, the King Air advised they could not go around anymore as they were already on the ground.

The A319 returned to the apron for a maintenance inspection and departed again about 4:15 hours after the rejected takeoff.

Here's the path coming in, everything seemed normal until engine failure.
sorry for the chop, but only one feed for everything.
So it picks up from approach, to engine failure, to the search, where your audio picks up.

A Diamond DA40 landed on Highway 501 near Myrtle Beach today after an engine failure during a practice instrument approach into KMYR.  No damage to the plane or any injuries - sounds like the pilot did an excellent job!  "Lyft 452" is the subject aircraft in the audio.

(Not the best audio out of Colorado, but no injuries reported, or cause determined as of yet as to the smoke source)

A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700, registration N474WN performing flight WN-1070 from Denver,CO to Tampa,FL (USA), was enroute at FL390 about 170nm southeast of Denver when the crew decided to divert to Colorado Springs,CO (USA), located about 160nm west of their position, after cabin crew reported smell of smoke in the cabin. The aircraft landed safely in Colorado Springs about 55 minutes after departure.

The airline reported cabin crew smelled an odour in the cabin like smoke prompting the diversion. Passengers and crew disembarked safely.

A replacement Boeing 737-700 registration N7831B positioned to Colorado Springs, resumed the flight and reached Tampa with a delay of about 3.5 hours.

#1 is north of BTV and #2 is across the Lake from Burlington in New York. The ATC transmitters for those are at St. Albans VT at the radar site.

Just wondering what the general location of the "ZBW Boston Center (MPV52/PLB53) #1 and #2" feeds are ? I thought they were both in the Burlington area and just want to confirm that. The reason I ask is that info. from Boston Center seems to indicate the BTV RCAG has been shutdown but you can still hear the controllers on both feeds.


Emergency crews responded to a small airplane that made a hard landing on Tuesday and got stuck on the runway at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).

According to RDU, a small plane with a pilot and three passengers on board called air traffic control with a nose gear issue around 6 p.m.
Kim Minor, who was on the plane with her husband, 10-year-old twins and their four dogs, said no one was injured.

"The front landing gear didn't go down all the way," she said. "Instead of landing in Harnett County, we decided to divert to RDU and be safe."

According to aviation expert Jim Crouse, the pilot appeared to mitigate any possible injuries on the landing.

"Maybe this pilot cut the engine and stopped the propeller from turning, as he was rolling down the runway on his main gear," Crouse said. "Looks like the pilot did a good job."
