Metrojet A321 crashes killing all 224 aboard

first_imgA possible link to a 2001 landing accident may be the cause of the loss of Metrojet Airbus A321, operating Flight 7K-9268 from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh (Egypt) to St. Petersburg (Russia) killing all 224 on board.However, terrorist action may also be the cause with a group linked to ISIS claiming resposibility, although there has been no official verification of this.The A321 appears to have broken up while climbing through 31,000ft over the Sinai Peninsula, whether this is the result of a decompression or terrorist activity is still to be determined. In 2001 the same A321 (MSN 663) while operating for Middle East Airlines was involved in a severe tail strike on landing according to Aviation-Safety.net.  It is possible that the repair to the rear pressure bulkhead was not done correctly causing a weakness and it has failed ripping the tail away rendering the aircraft uncontrollable.According to Aviation Herald, quoting officals, the A321 was located in mountainous terrain near Al-Arish however images of the crash site shows the area to be fairly flat. The plane’s flight data and cockpit voice recorders were recovered from the crash site, which spreads out over 16 square kilometers (over 6 square miles) some 70 kilometers (44 miles) south of the Egyptian city of el-Arish.As a precaution, Lufthansa, Air France, Qatar Airways and Emirates are altering flight paths to avoid the Sinai Peninsula area. Flightradar24 animation of flightpath plus technical data.World’s safest airlines.Taking your bags in an evacuation may kill you.Egyptian officials initially said that the pilot reported technical difficulties and wanted to make an emergency landing before losing contact with air traffic control, however that was later denied.The passengers were: 138 women, 62 men and 17 children BBC News reported, citing Egypt’s cabinet. Aviation tracking website Flight Radar 24 tweeted that the plane was descending at a rate of about 6000 feet a minute just before its signal was lost.A statement carried by the MENA agency said the A321 took off at 5:51 a.m. local time and disappeared from radar screens 23 minutes later.AirlineRatings.com does not safety rate Metrojet.The airline, known as Kogalym Avia, started operations in 1993. It operates five A321s and 2 corporate jets for charters only.The Airbus A321 has an excellent safety record.Initial observations; It is extremely unlikely that the aircraft was lost through an upset from Clear Air Turbulence (CAT). Whatever happened, did so without warning which points to a catastrophic break-up possiby indicating damage from the loss of the tail if the rear pressure bulkhead failed.Good weather was reported in the region making any cockpit instrumentation issue an extremely low probability.Safety observers suggest that the aircraft pluging indicates a “rapidly developing technical problem” leading to a break up. And wreckage is scattered over a wide area suggesting a high altitude breakup.A U.S. Federal Aviation Administration Notice to Airmen, or NOTAM, told pilots in the region to “exercise extreme caution [when flying below a certain altitude]…due to ongoing violence, unrest, security operations and the risk to safety from small-arms, rocket-propelled grenades, mortars, anti-aircraft fire and shoulder-fired, man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS).” This sort of shootdown would seem unlikely in this event, however, because the A321 was flying just above 30,000 feet.Still, the crash comes mere weeks after Russia upped the ante in the Syrian civil war, committing troops and warplanes to the defense of the Bashar al-Asad regime. The terrorist group ISIS was one of its targets.In a statement Airbus said:Airbus regrets to confirm that an A321-200 operated by Metrojet was involved in an accident shortly after 6:17 local time (04:17 GMT) over the Sinai Peninsula today. The aircraft was operating a scheduled service, Flight 7K-9268 from Sharm el Sheikh (Egypt) to St. Petersburg (Russia).The concerns and sympathy of the Airbus employees go to all those affected by this tragic accident of Flight 7K-9268.The aircraft involved in the accident, registered under EI-ETJ was MSN (Manufacturer Serial Number) 663, was produced in 1997 and since 2012 operated by Metrojet. The aircraft had accumulated some 56000 flight hours in nearly 21000 flights. It was powered by IAE-V2500 engines. At this time no further factual information is available.In line with ICAO annex 13, an Airbus go-team of technical advisors stands-by ready to provide full technical assistance to French Investigation Agency – BEA – and to the Authorities in charge of the investigation. The A321-200 is the largest member of the Airbus twin-engine A320 Family seating up to 240 passengers. The first A321 entered service in January 1994. By the end of September 2015, some 6500 A320 Family aircraft were in service with over 300 operators. To date, the entire fleet has accumulated some 168 million flight hours in some 92.5 million flights.Airbus will make further factual information available as soon as the details have been confirmed and cleared by the authorities for release.Photo credit: Joe Prieslast_img read more

Tutorial: Changing Eye Color in After Effects

first_imgIn this After Effects video tutorial you’ll discover how to swap the eye color of your on-screen talent! In this example I needed to match the eye color of two actors (each was playing the same character, one as an old version and the other as a younger version). Using a combination of relatively simple After Effects techniques you can give your talent a quick eye color change:Use ‘Track Motion’ to track the movements of the eyes in the shot. In this case, both the camera and subject’s head were moving, making it beneficial to use two trackers (one for each eye).Adjust the tracking range to best suit the motion in my footage. The bigger the trackers bounding boxes, the longer it takes to process the track. Pretty straightforward.Add a null object to each track.Use a shape layer and modify the color to match your desired color (apply a blend mode like Soft Light).Mask and feather this shape layer to mimic the shape of the eyeball.NOW, parent the color solid layer to the null layer.Add to your characters persona with an eye color tweak. Tint red to look frightening or evil or a blue/white tint can look martian or futuristic. Experiment with this visual effect in your AE projects to get your own unique looks.last_img read more

‘Farmers must be given options to check stubble burning’

first_imgPunjab Governor V.P. Singh Badnore on Friday said it was important that farmers were given the option to adopt alternative practices to ensure proper disposal of paddy residue instead of resorting to stubble burning.Expressing concern over the environmental hazards caused by the practice, Mr. Badnore said stubble burning was not only damaging the health of people but was also causing loss of organic components in soil.“There is a need to promote horticulture, cultivation of fruits and mushrooms in a big way to break the usual paddy-wheat crop cycle in Punjab,” he said at a workshop here on stakeholders’ initiative to address crop residue burning in the State.Mr. Badnore called for formulating a comprehensive strategy, including generating mass awareness among farmers, and providing available technologies at affordable prices.“I appreciate the progressive approach of the Punjab farmers and their in-depth knowledge about the latest farming techniques. Incentives must be given to farmers who have already adopted other alternatives and are not burning straw,” he said.Suresh Kumar, Chief Principal Secretary to the Punjab Chief Minister, said the government will constitute a State-level advisory group to formulate some immediate action plan to check stubble burning in the State.“I urge experts to work towards reducing the silica content in straw and making it fit for animal consumption. States like Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh, where there is a shortage of animal fodder, could be given the fodder at lower prices,” he added.last_img read more

FOX Sports’ Stewart Mandel Predicts A Radical Next Step For Conference Realignment

first_imgLogo map of college football teams.Up to this point, conference realignment has largely been about the expansion of the leagues’ footprints and adding games available to sell to broadcast partners. Even with possible movement in the Big 12, most believe that there will be around 64-68 schools divided up between four or five power conferences at the end of the day, with the rest of the FBS on the outside looking in.FOX Sports’ Stewart Mandel thinks things will take an even more drastic change, with the sport’s upper crust eventually setting itself apart in an even more meaningful way. This morning, he published a post, framing what he believes the college football world will look like in 10 years. Rather than the four or five power conferences that we are now accustomed to, Mandel sees the top 24 schools in the sport joining together to create their own four-division “conference” that will eventually decide the four teams that make up the College Football Playoff. Rather than further expansion, he expects a “consolidation of power” in the sport.What will college football realignment look like in 10 years? Think consolidation, not expansion. Story: https://t.co/ErD34sFUVD— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) May 16, 2016 Here is how Mandel lays things out: mandel divisions His explanation: with the ongoing shift in how people consume television and live events, maximizing the number of big-name matchups to draw the biggest audiences every week will be the new goal of the sport.Whereas the last round of realignment was driven by inventory — bundle together as many schools from as many markets as possible to command the highest possible subscriber fees — the next round will be more about content. Put on the biggest possible games to garner the largest possible audience because the viewers themselves will become the buyers rather than Comcast or Time Warner.This is certainly different than what we usually see in college football realignment projection columns, and there is plenty of logic behind a lot of this. Whether these schools would actually ditch the majority of their leagues to make this happen is a huge question, but it is definitely not outside the realm of possibility.[FOX Sports]last_img read more
