An elder B777-200 suffered an engine failure this past Saturday, leaving parts  along the flightpath used to return after declaring an emergency. United Airlines Boeing 777-200, N772UA, was built in 1994 and on its way to Honolulu from Denver International. The catastrophic failure resulted in extensive damage to the engine housings and fairings... pieces of which were found in several locations along its return path over Broomfield, CO, to the Denver airport -- where the aircraft landed safely with no injuries to anyone on board. A major feature for this year’s Sun ‘n Fun Aerospace Expo will be the first public drone light show performance at a Florida airshow. Over 60 of the specialized aerial robots will lift-off together, taking flight twice during the week-long event. Sun ‘n Fun organizers are

Although the aircraft landed safely, the failure resulted in damage to the engine, an in-flight engine fire, and damage to the airplane.

Airborne-Special Edition 02.11.21: Aviation Safety Resources' Larry Williams

Also: Next-Gen Airplane Parachutes, Lighter, Smaller, and More Cost-Effective, Coming Soon

ANN’s Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell has an interesting background as a test pilot... But one of the most exciting programs he was part of …..was flying and testing the first early generation of emergency airframe parachute systems on several different Cessnas, while working with two separate development programs. The technology has progressed so much since then, but the next generation of airframe recovery parachute systems is undergoing preparation for the civilian market and beyond... promising better/lighter materials, small sizes, and lower costs. Our Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell interviewed Aviation Safety Resources’ CEO and President Larry Williams to get the inside scoop on what we’ll be seeing from ASR in the very near future -- and take our words for it, ASR seems ready to sh

Emergency AD: Bell 505

AD #2021-05-52 Prompted By A Report Of A Cracked Pilot Collective Stick

An Emergency Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2021-05-52 is being sent to owners and operators of certain Bell Textron Canada Limited (Bell) Model 505 helicopters. This emergency AD was prompted by a report of a cracked pilot collective stick and grip assembly (pilot collective stick) that was discovered during a pre-flight check of the flight controls. This emergency AD requires, before further flight, visually inspecting the pilot collective stick for a crack. If no crack is found during the visual inspection, performing a fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI) for a crack is required.

Another much-anticipated event, one that was pretty an indoor convention, has been delayed due to issues associated with the pandemic. The Flight School Association of North America notes that, "Through discussions with members, suppliers, government officials and hotel management, the FSANA board and staff have decided to reschedule the 2021 conference. We apologize to anyone unable to make the new date, but feel the move will make for a better conference for all who attend or exhibit. We expect that we may have our largest attendance ever." The event is now scheduled for August 18-20, 2021, and will still be held in the Rosen Plaza in Orlando, Florida.

Fading Memory: NTSB’s TWA Flight 800 Reconstruction to be Decommissioned

TWA Flight 800, A Boeing 747, Crashed July 17, 1996, Minutes After Takeoff

The National Transportation Safety Board has decided to decommission the TWA Flight 800 reconstruction as the agency prepares for the expiration of the lease for its Ashburn, Virginia, Training Center. The reconstruction, housed in the 30,000 square foot hangar along with other training tools at the NTSB’s Training Center, has been used in the NTSB’s accident investigation training courses for nearly 20 years. However, advances in investigative techniques such as 3-D scanning and drone imagery, lessen the relevance of the large-scale reconstruction in teaching modern investigative techniques.
