flygcforum.com ✈ AIR INDIA FLIGHT 182 ✈ 1985 Air India Bombing ✈

flygcforum.com ✈ AIR INDIA FLIGHT 182 ✈ 1985 Air India Bombing ✈ | flygcforum.com ✈ Everything Aviation ✈ Flight Training, Aviation Products, Travel and Leisure Services ✈ | Scoop.it

The Air India flight was only 45 minutes from London Heathrow when it suddenly disappeared from radar screens.

flygc's insight:

Air India flight 182 from Toronto to Delhi was destroyed mid-air about 120 miles off the south-west coast of Ireland by a bomb in the suitcase of a man who had checked in a suitcase but had not boarded the flight. The attack was the work of Sikh militants who wanted to strike at the Indian government after the Golden Temple at Amritsar - the most important shrine in Sikhism - was stormed by troops in June 1984.

Very cool to see old warriors relive a little well earned glory.

flygc's insight:

To all who made it possible for a former airforce pilot to go back one more time and check off his "bucket list" I say well done gents. It is nice to know that there are still people who appreciate former members of the military who served honourably and know that after serving they are still recognised. Nice job Steve for making it come together.

The kind of individuals required to operate successfully in these circumstances are not found in abundance. The selection process for entry into SAS(R) seeks to identify the qualities and potential of those suitable for service within SAS(R).

Blitzkrieg a military tactic calculated to create psychological shock.

flygc's insight:

A German term for “lightning war,” blitzkrieg is a military tactic designed to create disorganization among enemy forces through the use of mobile forces and locally concentrated firepower. Its successful execution results in short military campaigns, which preserves human lives and limits the expenditure of artillery. The Ju87 was one of the most feared aircraft during World War Two. Its fixed undercarriage and cranked wing gave the Ju87 an evil appearance and the scream of its 'Trumpets of Jericho' sirens as it dived helped to spread terror amongst both soldiers and civilians.

flygc's insight:

A man was violently removed from a United Airlines flight by aviation police officials at Chicago’s O’Hare international airport on Sunday, in an incident captured on video by several other passengers. In one clip, posted by passenger Audra Bridges to Facebook, guards can be seen aggressively grabbing, and then dragging, the passenger down the aisle of the plane, which was bound for Louisville, Kentucky. Other passengers can be heard screaming and shouting “Oh my God” and “Look at what you did to him.”

Aisha Dixon OHS's curator insight, April 24, 9:01 PM
According to Australian consumer organisation Choice, it is perfectly legal to overbook seats on a flight in Australia as it is in America. The United Airline example is one that all airlines can learn from when a demand for a customer to leave his seat can go horribly wrong. In Australia, CASA states that it is legal for flight crew to restrain unruly passengers. In this case, it is subjective whether the passenger in United Airlines was behaving unruly and he was described by staff as being belligerent. This case is still under investigation and we will learn more as time wanes on however we can extract some WHS problems that staff could face in this situation. The crew member could be victim to physical and psychological assaults. What would happen if the passenger was unruly and violent to the flight crew member? We could breach specifically S19 Work health and safety Act 2012 primary duty of care without a evidence of due diligence.  It would be difficult to demonstrate due diligence without process that is clear to both passenger and crew to avoid problems like this.
