 4 hurt in rollercoaster accident

08 July 2014 09:55:48 timesofmalta.com

A rollercoaster derailed at a California amusement park, slightly injuring four people and leaving 22 stranded about 20 feet in the air. The Ninja ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain struck a tree branch shortly before 5.30pm local time yesterday and stopped, said Michael Pittman of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Televised news reports showed at least one of the cars that are normally suspended beneath a track dangling at an angle, derailed at the front. Firefighters and park maintenance workers in harnesses could be seen removing the riders one by one from rollercoaster cars. Others waited patiently, some talking with each other and others resting with their eyes occasionally closed. The last of the 22 people stuck on the rollercoaster were rescued about three hours after the accident. Mr Pittman said four people on the ride received minor injuries, but they and other riders remained on the stalled rollercoaster after the accident. The Ninja rollercoaster can hold up to 28 riders. "As you shoot down the snake-like steel track you'll grip the hillsides and blast through the trees swiftly, slicing through the landscape. Ninja pivots with precision as you narrowly miss...

DGCA wants real-time tracking

08 May 2014 05:42:30 The Asian Age

In the wake of the failure of international search and rescue efforts so far to locate the missing Malaysian Airlines aircraft, DGCA has now issued guidelines to both scheduled and non-scheduled operators “for real-time tracking of aircraft”, asking them to ensure activation of either the onboard aircraft communications addressing and reporting system (ACARS) or automatic dependent surveillance — broadcast (ADS-B) for this purpose. Airlines have also been ordered to ensure the serviceability of this equipment before every departure. The DGCA has also stipulated that in “areas where there is no coverage of ACARS/ADS-B, the operator (airline) should devise a procedure for effective tracking of the aircraft” and that “while flying over such areas, the flight crew should report the aircraft coordinates, speed and altitude at an interval of not exceeding 15 minutes”. According to the DGCA, ACARS is a “digital datalink system that is increasingly being used for transmission of short messages between aircraft and ground stations via airband radio (HF and VHF) or satellite and also for flight tracking”. The DGCA has also ordered that “flight crew should immediately report to the ground station any intermittent behaviour/unserviceability of ACARS/ADS-B during flight either using data link or voice message”. The major functions of ACARS are that it “automatically detects and report changes to the flight phases (out of the gate, off the ground, on the ground and into the gate), interfaces with the flight management system (FMS) for communication of flight plans and weather information from the ground station and transmits information from the aircraft to ground stations about the conditions of various aircraft systems and sensors on real-time basis, including maintenance faults and abnormal events for health monitoring of equipment”. In a statement, the Civil Aviation Ministry said, “In view of the difficulties faced in search and rescue operations after an aircraft goes missing or meets with an accident, the DGCA has issued guidelines to all operators, in the form of an Air Safety Circular, for real time tracking of aircraft engaged in carrying passengers and cargo from departure to arrival. This is significant in view of the preliminary report released by Ministry of Transport, Malaysia, into the accident of B777-200 aircraft 9M-MRO operating flight MH-370 on March 8, 2014, which has revealed that the location of wreckage is still unknown due to the fact that there is no real time tracking of the aircraft. It is now known that after Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) had stopped transmitting, the satellite communication system automatically transmitted seven messages that confirmed that the system was still logged onto the network.” “During the last five years, there have been two occasions when large commercial transport aircraft went missing and their last position was not accurately known. While commercial air transport aircraft spend considerable amount of time operating over remote areas, there is currently no international requirement for real time tracking of the aircraft. This uncertainty resulted in significant difficulty in locating the aircraft in a timely manner in both the cases. Such incidents as well as the recent Malaysian tragedy have prompted the DGCA to take necessary action,” the ministry said.
