Flight 232


If you're a fan of Air Disasters ( I think it's most gripping show in town)  you'll have seen the United Airlines Flight 232 segment.  What particularly resonates with me is that cuzzin ricky had a friend and work-mate on the plane.  He was not one of the 185.   This Boing-Boing treatment is also pretty good.

Just saw last night the story of a DHL plane flying out of Baghdad about 2003 hit in the left wing with a SAM-14 while a French women reporter was with the terrorists. Suffered failure in all three hydraulic systems and landed more successfully than Flight 232 with thrust only. Part of the same series I think. Earlier a Japanese plane had suffered the same loss of hydraulics and may still be the worst aviation accident to date.

My home town. My fondest memories are of the air shows I watched there as a child. That lead to my career in Naval Aviation. When I go back to visit now it is truly mixed emotions at the 'air base' as we used to call it.
