But you have to be impressed that they all survived after a 75m drop.
Looking at that photo, hell yeah.

I guess there is some redeeming quality about Tesla. The vehicle saved the family despite the nut behind the wheel.

2024-04-29: Finnair suspends flights to Tartu (Estonia) for a month
wrote:
The approach methods currently used at Tartu Airport are based on a GPS signal. GPS interference, which is quite common in the area, affects the usability of this approach method and can therefore prevent the aircraft from approaching and landing. Last week, two Finnair flights had to divert back to Helsinki after GPS interference prevented the approach to Tartu.

"The systems on Finnair's aircraft detect GPS interference, our pilots are well aware of the issue, and the aircraft have other navigation systems that can be used when the GPS system is unserviceable," [...] "Most airports use alternative approach methods, but some airports, such as Tartu, only use [...] GPS signal to support them. The GPS interference in Tartu forces us to suspend flights until alternative solutions have been established."

GPS interference has increased since 2022, and Finnair pilots have reported interference especially near Kaliningrad, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean. Typically, GPS interference does not affect flight routes or flight safety, as pilots are well aware of it and aircraft have alternative systems in place that are used when the GPS signal is interfered with.
Looks like someone needs to explain to Russia the principle of international treaties and conventions.

The biggest issue with GPS spoofing and jamming is south of the Black Sea in the Middle East, but, yeah, Russia is doing all it can to screw with Ukraine.

And in or near the Baltic Sea which is where Kaliningrad or Königsberg is at just north of Poland.

How pilot’s drunken all-nighter in Dallas forces cancellation of Japan Airlines flight
A Dallas to Tokyo flight was canceled after its pilot got too drunk, received a warning from police, then grounded by his employer.

According to Japan Airlines, the 49 year old pilot became disruptive while drinking and partying with crew members at a layover hotel. He continued the behavior all night in the hotel lounge then in his room, despite several warnings from staff.

Police were called at 2 a.m. after hotel guests began to complain. Though he did not violate Japan Airlines’ guidelines against drinking within 12 hours of boarding, the pilot was prohibited from flying as a precautionary measure.

It only takes 1 fool to cause death and mayhem.

Two people dead in a horror crash in Brisbane’s Legacy Way tunnel.

Two people dead, one critical after crash in Brisbane's Legacy Way tunnel.

According to witnesses the ex-copper in the S3 came to a stop at the entrance of the tunnel blocking 1 lane causing angst to others before heading off at high speed (at at least 200km/h was mentioned by some). Likely he was trying to see how quickly he and his car could travel through the 4.6km tunnel.


Seeing the damage to his car that speed doesn't seem too far fetched.

Audi drivers seem to be the new Commodore drivers.

As soon as i saw an A3 was involved, i expected an act of stupidity was involved- but if what witnesses claimed to have occurred did, it takes it to a whole new level of stupidity.

Update.

Best friends were on way to a wedding before fatal tunnel crash with ex-cop.

.......“I was driving behind the Audi … for some reason (the driver) slowed down and stopped when we entered the tunnel,” they said.

“(The driver) didn’t indicate or put hazards on … I indicated around him and kept going … a few people beeped at him.

“I got back in the left lane but kept looking back to see if he got going again.

“Then I could hear a car engine roaring as he went past me … then 20 seconds later smoke and debris was flying around.”......
He certainly ruined some lives.

Along the Berlin city autobahn (freeway) there are speed cameras with infrared flashes (unnoticeable to avoid sudden braking) in most of the longer tunnels. Without them there would be similar lunatics going crazy at nights.

Boeing skids off runway at Senegal's main airport, injuring at least 10
At least 10 people were reportedly injured on the Air Sénégal flight headed to Bamako.
A Boeing 737 plane skidded off the runway at the airport in the Senegal capital, Dakar, injuring at least 10 people, four of whom are in serious condition.
Some 85 people were onboard the plane that trundled off the runway onto the grass.
The Air Sénégal flight operated by TransAir was headed to Bamako late on Wednesday carrying 79 passengers, two pilots and four cabin crew, Transport Minister El Malick Ndiaye said in a statement on Thursday.


Other reports say it was during take off and it was a Boeing 737-300.

A tragedy was narrowly avoided at Blaise Diagne Airport in Dakar.
The B737/300 aircraft, chartered by Air Senegal from TRANSAIR, came to rest outside SEUIL 19 of the runway. The aircraft went off the runway during its take-off phase on Thursday, May 9, 2024 at around 1 a.m.

According to the AIBD communication cell, "78 passengers were on board and 11 injured were recorded, 4 of which were serious. 6 other lightly injured people were admitted to the airport medical services for observation. This led to the closure of the Blaise Diagne Airport in Diass (AIBD). The reopening is scheduled in the next few hours.

Indeed, the emergency plan was triggered by the airport authorities as soon as the information was communicated to them. Thus, all the airport's emergency services have been mobilized for the evacuation of passengers and their care as planned.

The exact circumstances of the incident are unknown, but an investigation is already underway to establish the causes of the runway excursion, we are told.

Aviation specialists, as well as representatives of the airline concerned, are on site to closely examine the flight data and interview the crew members.

A good example of why you should secure your load, and how not to do it.

Despite not securing his load properly that's one driver who should buy a lottery ticket - those pipes can't have missed his left shoulder by more than a gnat's whatzit.
