Insiden Landing Gear Boeing 737-800 SpiceJet, Drama Pendaratan Darurat Yang Dramatis!

first_imgPilot maskapai ini pun baru mengetahui ada masalah pada landing gear ketika pihak Air Traffic Controller (ATC) berusaha menghubungi mereka melalui jaringan telekomunikasi. Namun tidak ada istilah ‘batal mengudara’ ketika pesawat sudah menyentuh landas pacu, terlebih ketika pesawat sudah memacu penuh tenaga pendorongnya. Alhasil, drama pertama pun dimulai ketika maskapai SpiceJet ini mengudara dengan kondisi landing gear yang rusak.Berdasarkan pantauan petugas ATC Bandara Internasional Chennai, mereka melihat kepulan api yang melahap ban belakang dari armada SpiceJet ini ketika pesawat hendak lepas landas. Beberapa saat setelah pesawat meninggalkan daratan, ban kanan belakang yang berapi-api tersebut pun meledak. Imbasnya, cairan hidrolik yang tersimpan dekat dengan ban ini membanjiri landas pacu utama bandara tersibuk ketiga di India ini.Pilot SpiceJet yang tiada henti berkomunikasi dengan pihak ATC terus berusaha untuk mendaratkan pesawat yang berada dalam kondisi tidak prima tersebut. Opsi pertama pesawat bisa mendarat di Bandara Vijayawada, namun sayangnya bandara tersebut tidak memiliki fasilitas pendaratan darurat yang memadai. Akhirnya pihak ATC Bandara Internasional Chennai memerintahkan maskapai SpiceJet yang tengah bermasalah tersebut untuk return to base ke landas pacu Chennai.Setelah mendapat lampu hijau dari petugas ATC, pilot lalu melakukan pendaratan darurat di landas pacu Bandara Chennai. Kendati maskapai SpiceJet tersebut mengalami pecah ban, namun pilot tetap bisa mendaratkan pesawat dengan selamat. Kondisi ban yang sudah tidak terlindung karet ini membuat landas pacu tersebut rusak. Walaupun sudah melewati dua drama menegangkan dalam penerbangan gagal tersebut, namun keseluruhan penumpang dan awak kabin SpiceJet selamat.Baca Juga: Bird Strike Paksa AirAsia QZ104 ‘Return to Base’ di Bandara KualanamuAlhasil, pihak bandara harus menutup sementara proses penerbangan dan pendaratan hingga pukul 18.45 waktu setempat. Sejumlah maskapai yang dijadwalkan berangkat pada rentang waktu tersebut pun terpaksa mengalami keterlambatan penerbangan.Drama lain kembali muncul ketika pihak ATC Bandara Internasional Chennai menerima laporan dari sebuah pesawat kargo asal Ethiopia yang meminta ijin untuk melakukan pendaratan darurat dikarenakan bahan bakar mereka hampir habis. Padahal landas pacu bandara tersebut masih ditutup karena kerusakan yang terjadi akibat pendaratan darurat maskapai SpiceJet.Setelah melakukan beragam pertimbangan, akhirnya petugas ATC Chennai mengijinkan pesawat kargo tersebut untuk melakukan pendaratan darurat di landas pacu kedua mereka.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedBelakangan Pesawat Kerap Bermasalah pada Roda Pendarat, Ada Apa?05/03/2020In “Analisa Angkutan”Intip Cara Qantas Rawat Komponen Landing Gear System Tanpa Harus Terbang13/05/2020In “Featured”Mendebarkan!

Steelers QB Mason Rudolph didn’t need cart after knockout hit, NFL says

first_imgSteelers quarterback Mason Rudolph was carried off the field Sunday after being knocked out by Ravens safety Earl Thomas, due largely in part because the medical cart at Heinz Field wasn’t working.But the NFL claimed Rudolph didn’t need the cart anyway. Mason Rudolph knocked unconscious. #BALvsPIT pic.twitter.com/rWkF1YfZRT— Rob Lowder (@Rob_Lowder) October 6, 2019Rudolph was ruled out for the rest of the game with a concussion and taken to a local hospital for further evaluation but has since been released. ESPN reported Rudolph is “doing well” now that he’s resting comfortably at home.His status will be closely monitored this week after the Steelers turned to third-string quarterback Devlin Hodges. The team already lost Ben Roethlisberger to a season-ending elbow injury in Week 2.Pittsburgh will next face the Chargers (2-3) in Week 6 action before its Week 7 bye. Earl Thomas ‘worried’ about Mason Rudolph: ‘I didn’t intentionally try to hurt him’ Steelers, Mike Tomlin come up short vs. Ravens after rare coin-toss decision Rudolph was attempting to make a throw when Thomas hit him in the chin before he got the pass off. It was a scary scene as Rudolph laid motionless on his back for several minutes while the team’s medical staff attended to him and removed his facemask. He was later seen telling trainers, “I’m good” as he was helped to the locker room. “A cart was brought on the field in the event it was needed,” the league said in a statement, per ProFootballTalk. “After evaluating the player, medical staff determined a cart was not necessary in this instance. Had one been needed, there was a backup cart on the other sideline which was immediately available. He received appropriate medical care per gameday protocols, and is now in the concussion protocol.”According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which cited an unidentified stadium source, the cart did not break down and instead failed because of operator error. The report also noted Rudolph wanted to walk off the field rather than use the cart.

Dow posts 6th loss in row on trade spat

first_imgNEW YORK — Big industrial and technology companies skidded Tuesday as the trade dispute between the U.S. and China threatened to come to a boil. Smaller companies less focused on overseas trade fared better, as did dividend-paying stocks.The Dow Jones industrial average fell for the sixth day in a row and lost 287.26 points, or 1.1 percent, to 24,700.21. The S&P 500 index gave up 11.18 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,762.57. The Nasdaq composite fell 21.44 points, or 0.3 percent, to 7,725.59. International markets suffered steeper losses. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index sank 2.8 percent, its biggest decline since February, and Germany’s DAX lost 1.2 percent.Oil and copper fell. Both are commodities that would be susceptible if a trade dispute caused a slowdown in global economic growth. Cautious investors moved money into bonds.President Donald Trump told the U.S. Trade Representative to identify $200 billion in goods for a potential 10 percent tax, and China said it would respond with duties of its own. In a statement, Trump said that if China retaliated, he would order yet another $200 billion in tariffs. China doesn’t import enough goods from the U.S. to match the scale of Trump’s proposals, but could sanction U.S. products or companies through other means.Just days ago, the U.S. and China each announced 25 percent taxes on $50 billion in imports from the other. While the dollar amounts are rising rapidly, the countries still have time to negotiate, as the previously announced tariffs won’t take effect until July 6.last_img read more
