Yesterday, a Super Hornet crashed on takeoff from the USS Theodore Roosevelt , a UH-1Y went missing during disaster relief operations in Nepal, a Cobra made an emergency landing in the LA River canal and the NAS Corpus Christi flight line was inundated with water. It was a rough Tuesday for America’s air forces.
I am OK, but Nepal is not. The part of the country that got hit the hardest is the remote Gorkha district. Many small towns and villages are still not included in any government search and rescue effort. This is one of many stories from the area: One day, six volunteers and two villages.
All 238 people aboard a Turkish Airlines A330 are safe after the aircraft somehow ended up in the grasslands beyond the runway. Conflicting reports state that it either ran off the end of the runway or completely missed the runway on its second attempt at landing in what appears to be poor weather conditions.
