Air France flight AF953 misses Cameroon Mountain.

An Air France aero plane missed hitting the highest mountain in central Africa in early May, French investigators say.

Flight AF953 was travelling from Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea, to Douala, Cameroon's largest city, when it hit bad weather on 2 May.

While avoiding storm clouds, the plane came close to hitting the 4,040-metre (13,254 feet) Mount Cameroon.

French accident investigators BEA have now opened an investigation.

The Boeing 777 aircraft had 37 people on board as it made the short journey to Douala, which is around 100km (62 miles) from Malabo.

It was due to arrive in Cameroon to pick up more passengers before continuing to Paris.
 
After diverting north to avoid storm clouds shortly after 21:00 local time, the plane's new route to Douala took it directly towards the mountain.

An initial incident report published by BEA said an automated warning, saying "Pull up", was activated. The plane then ascended quickly from 9,000ft (2,743m) to 13,000ft (3,962m) to avoid a collision.

BEA did not say how close the plane came to Mount Cameroon.

The flight landed 44 minutes after leaving Malabo, and no-one was injured.
Air France said they were conducting an internal investigation into the incident.

A Singapore Airlines Airbus jet lost power on all of its engines mid-flight

Over the weekend, Singapore Airlines Flight 836, flying from Singapore to Shanghai, lost power mid-flight on both of its Rolls-Royce engines.

According to Flightradar 24, the Airbus A330-343 experienced the problem while cruising at 39,000 feet.

The incident, which took place just south of Hong Kong, caused the airliner to descend 13,000 feet before the crew was able to restart the engines.

The Airbus jet — registration number 9V-SSF — landed safely in Shanghai an hour and a half later.

There were 182 passengers and 12 crew members on board the airliner. No injuries were reported.

According to The Aviation Herald, Singapore Airlines confirmed that the A330 "experienced a temporary loss of power" after encountering some bad weather.

Once on the ground in Shanghai, the two-month-old airliner underwent a batch of tests, but a cause for the power loss couldn't be determined, The Aviation Herald reported.

Singapore's Air Accident Investigations Bureau is looking into the incident.
When a jet like the A330 loses an engine, it's still certified to fly for as long as four hours on the remaining engine.

Obviously, when a jet loses both engines, the situation is much more serious. However, pilots are trained to handle it.

The A330-300 is a twin-engine midsize wide-body airliner and one of Airbus' top-selling aircraft types. The plane that experienced the problem was fitted with two Rolls-Royce Trent 772B turbofan engines.

Singapore has 31 Airbus A330-300s in its fleet.

They fly routes across Asia and Australia.

Definitely more serious!  Laughing

That said, a commercial airliner will glide for around a 100 miles from cruise altitude, which gives the crew a good half hour of flying before they get back to the ground even if they can't restart an engine.

That is true.
Aircraft are made to glide distance of roughly about 8 times the height of the disabled aircraft was at and make a safe landing and or ditch in water.

Haven't you heard sinking ferries and crashing vehicles ?

Best or worst ,We have to go when the time is right, not a second earlier or later.

we have to take the risk like buying shares.
