  • Is the F-35 Now the Ultimate Drone Killer? news

    An F-35 used sensors, on-board computers and targeting systems to find, track and destroy two airborne drones at once. Previous test data and observers have confirmed the F-35 identified and targeted the drone with its mission systems sensors, passed the target ‘track’ information to the missile, enabled the pilot to verify targeting information using the high off-boresight capability of the helmet mounted display and launched the AIM-9X from the aircraft to engage the target drone, a statement from the F-35 JPO said. When a single F-35 used sensors, on-board computers and targeting systems to find, track and destroy two airborne drones at the same time with air-to-air missiles, the emerging 5th Gen fighter transitioned into a new era for offensive attack missions.

    Audio of the Southwest Airlines incident has emerged, showing how pilot Tammie Jo Shults remained completely calm after an engine exploded and a woman passenger was nearly sucked out of the plane. It is believed that one woman, Jennifer Riordan, died in the initial engine explosion, which sent shrapnel smashing into the Boeing 737-700, but Ms Shults, whose experience includes being one of the first female fighter pilots in the US Navy, was able to get all the other passengers to safety.

  • Airlines inspecting Boeing planes after Southwest engine ripped apart mid-air news

    Airlines are inspecting Boeing 737 planes after an engine on a passenger  flight ripped apart mid-air and killed a woman who came close to being  sucked through a broken window. Jennifer Riordan, 43, was on a Southwest Airline flight from New York to  Dallas when a part of the engine shattered into the window and nearly  pulled her out.  Mrs Riordan, a banking executive, was hauled back into the aircraft by  other passengers who attempted to resuscitate her but she later died of her  injuries.  Jennifer Riordan was partially pulled out of the jet's window Robert Sumwalt, the chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board  (NTSB) said an initial inspection of the failed engine found evidence of  metal fatigue where a fan blade had broken off.  Mr Sumwalt said investigators were "very concerned" about the issue of  detecting slow-developing metal fatigue.  "There needs to be proper inspection mechanisms in place to check for this  before there's a catastrophic event."  Jet engine scrutinised All recent Boeing 737s are powered by engines from CFM, one of the world's  largest engine suppliers for commercial planes.  In 2016, another Southwest flight was forced to make an emergency landing  after a fan blade separated from the same type of engine, and debris ripped  a foot-long hole above the left wing. Metal fatigue was cited in that  incident too.  CFM said on Wednesday that there are more than 8,000 of its CFM56-7B  engine - the model involved in Tuesday's incident - in operation on Boeing  737 passenger jets.  Southwest, which operates one of the world's largest 737 fleets and has a  strong safety record, said it was speeding up inspections of all related  engines, which it expected to complete within 30 days.  This month European regulators ordered engine checks following a lengthy  analysis of the 2016 Southwest incident but investigators said it is too  early to say whether the two problems are linked.  The incident on Tuesday, the first fatal US airline accident in almost a  decade, left seven others injured on the 144-passenger plane.  How the Southwest Airlines tragedy happened James Healy-Pratt, a pilot and aviation lawyer, said: "Uncontained engine  failures are rare but can be devastating. It is where a turbine blade  breaks off at high speed within the engine and projects shrapnel through  the protective Kevlar engine cowling, designed to stop that.  "The crew did well to get the aircraft down. The question remains how and  why the protective Kevlar cowling did not do its job."  Bob Mann, an aviation consultant, said the question was whether current  inspection requirements had been met.  "If it is determined to be CFM56-7B fan blade root fatigue failure, as was  the earlier 2016 SWA Airworthiness Directive could be  expected from aviation oversight agencies," he said.  He added: "As to the window puncture, despite all simulations, we don't  really have a very good idea of where high energy rotating turbine parts  will go if they do depart the containment rings and casings, so more  attention may be paid to how engine containment is tested and certified as  flight-worthy."  Southwest is not inspecting all of its CFM56 engines, instead focusing on  older models, according to a source.  It is likely its inspections "are in the 400 to 600 engine range in order  to wrap this up in 30 days," the source said.  Hero pilot Meanwhile the "hero" pilot of the Southwest plane has been praised for her  "nerves of steel" in carrying out an emergency landing in Philadelphia  during the freak accident.  Tammie Jo Shults, a former fighter pilot with the US Navy, told emergency  services: “We have part of the aircraft missing, so we’re going to need to  slow down a bit.”  Pilot Tammie Jo Shults was praised for her handling of the mid-air drama “We’ve got injured passengers,” Ms Shults added, pausing for a moment, “they said there’s a hole, and uh, someone went out.”  Others on board the Dallas-bound flight braced for impact as oxygen masks  muffled their screams.  After touching down, the pilot walked through the aisle to meet her  passengers.  "She has nerves of steel that lady, I applaud her," said passenger Alfred  Tumlinson.  Mr Tumlinson said a man in a cowboy hat rushed forward a few rows to grab  Mrs Riordan and pull her back in.  "She was out of the plane. He couldn't do it by himself, so another  gentleman came over and helped to get her back in the plane, and they got  her," he said.

  • The power is out again in Puerto Rico, 7 months after Hurricane Maria news

    Seven months after Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico is still dealing with the fallout as it experienced an island-wide blackout on Wednesday. SEE ALSO: The mayor of Puerto Rico's capital can't believe this tiny firm's $300 million contract This latest power outage follows a series of outages in the months since Maria. Just last week, half of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority's (PREPA) customers lost power when a tree fell across a major power line. And in November 2017, San Juan and several other cities lost power at least twice due to a failure.  The entire electrical system in Puerto Rico collapses AGAIN! Back to September 20th. @DavidBegnaud @leylasantiago @maddow @stephencolbertr — Carmen Yulín Cruz (@CarmenYulinCruz) April 18, 2018 Per CNN, PREPA is focusing primary efforts on getting power back to hospital and water services as well as banks and the city of San Juan. The outage was reportedly caused when an excavator hit a main transmission line while clearing vegetation. PREPA is hoping to have power restored in the next 24 to 36 hours One spotlight event will go on as scheduled, though. The Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins are in San Juan for a two-game series and Wednesday's night game will go forward as planned thanks to generators to power the lights at Hiram Bithorn Stadium.  All emergency systems at Hiram Bithorn Stadium have been tested just now and are fully functional. The game will GO ON. Nothing will stop us — Carmen Yulín Cruz (@CarmenYulinCruz) April 18, 2018 The island's infrastructure and power grid were already fragile before Maria struck in late September 2017, lashing the island with sustained winds of up to 140 miles per hour, throwing the entire island into the dark and straining resources.  Controversy has followed recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, including President Trump's disastrous response to the storm and the much-debated contract initially given to Whitefish Energy to repair the power infrastructure. And the exact death toll from the storm is still unknown; while the official number stands at 65, this number is likely far too low, with some estimates pegging it at closer to 1,000.

  • EPA's Pruitt under spending probe; senators urge his ouster news

    By Timothy Gardner WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House budget office said on Wednesday it was probing whether a $43,000 soundproof phone booth installed for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt violated the law, while dozens of Democratic senators called for him to resign over allegations of ethics lapses. Pruitt has been under fire for potential ethics lapses, including flying first class, excessive spending on security, and the rental of a room in a Washington condominium owned by the wife of an energy lobbyist. The Office of Management and Budget is reviewing whether spending on the booth installed in Pruitt's office broke a law prohibiting federal agencies from incurring expenses in excess of available funds, known as the Anti-Deficiency Act.
