Man Jumps To His Death From Helicopter In Malibu

Veterans Day Sale. Extra $30 Off. Promo Code: VETERAN30
 

Things took a dark turn Sunday afternoon about a mile off the Malibu pier. 

The pilot of a helicopter reported that his passenger had climbed out of the cockpit and jumped out. According to reports, the side door of the helicopter had been removed for a photo shoot.

The pilot made a futile attempt to keep the man from jumping by putting the chopper into a banking turn. The man was able to jump anyway and lifeguards immediately rushed to the scene. Although the man was brought to shore and paramedics tried to revive him, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

           

 

The man’s name is currently being withheld as the coroner’s office is trying to notify next of kin.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the death.

Airbus Engine Fails Over Atlantic

 

 

HP Commission

 

 Airbus A380 flight AF66 from Paris to Los Angeles was forced to make a diversion after one of the four engines failed just west of Greenland. None of the 496 passengers and 24 crew were injured but some were surely a bit frightened when the engine failed.

 

 

Passenger David Rehmar, a former aircraft mechanic, was on board at the time and told the BBC that from what he observed, the incident was a fan failure. He said he observed a sudden movement followed by a loud noise, which panicked some passengers. “You heard a loud ‘boom’, and it was the vibration alone that made me think the engine had failed.”   Mr Rehmar said that for a minute, he thought “we were going to go down.” He said he doubted it was a bird strike due to the high altitude but likely a stage-one fan, the exterior fan blades on the front of the engine, that had failed.

Fortunately, the pilots were able to switch off the affected engine and the plane stabilized within about 30 seconds.

The plane was able to fly on the remaining 3 engines until it reached Goose Bay Airport in eastern Canada where passengers had to remain on board because the airport was not equipped to handle an Airbus.

Photos of the engine were taken by passengers that show damage to the engine and wing. 

The cause for engine failure is not yet known

Rockets Will Be The New Airplane

Thanksgiving Treat. Enjoy $30 Off. Promo Code: THANKS30
 

According to Elon Musk, intercontinental travel will be reduced to a matter of minutes. He has a plan which is purely theoretical for now, but the expectation is that he will be able to use the rockets made for traveling to the moon and mars, to travel between major cities on Earth. He suggests that people will be able to fly anywhere in the world in under an hour for the same price as a plane ticket.

HP Commission

Musk gave The Verge some examples of flight times. Hong Kong to Singapore in 22 minutes, London to Dubai in 29 minutes, and Los Angeles to Toronto in 24.

The basic idea behind this new endeavor relies on the mega-rocket, which would put a spaceship into orbit around the earth. The ship would be able to land on floating landing pads placed near cities across the world. Weird right? 

Mr. Musk is planning on the construction of this intercity rocket to take place over the next year so just hold on to your hats folks, looks like he’s planning on putting the pedal to the metal on this one. We wish him luck!

Trump White House Calling For ” Larger, Tougher” Travel Restrictions


                        Kiwi.com - Book Cheap Flights!

 After another terror attack in London, the Adviser for National Security H.R. McMaster says the Trump administration is considering a new travel ban. McMaster told ABC’s This Week that “If you can’t screen people effectively to know who’s coming into your country, then you shouldn’t allow people from that country to travel,” and that “This is something that we are looking at.”

Trump said that after “another attack in London by a loser terrorist” that he is calling for “larger, tougher” travel restrictions.

McMaster appeared on Fox News Sunday and was asked about the relationship of the POTUS and the National Security Council. McMaster implied that relations have improved since advisor Steve Bannon has left the White House. Bannon considered McMaster to be a globalist and often found themselves at odds over national security decisions.

                                                                     

 When McMaster was asked about Bannon he said, Trump is best served without people who try “to manipulate” a particular decision and “advance your agenda,” and “There were some who tried to operate outside of that process for their own narrow agendas and that didn’t serve the president well.”

President Trump retweeted himself saying that “The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!”
