Tiniest Technical Trouble Can Spell Random Catastrophe For A Person & Their Loved Ones – IMRAN™

One killed as Southwest Airlines’ Boeing jet makes emergency landing in Philadelphia

I was saddened to read this breaking #news from NBC News. “One killed as Southwest AirlinesBoeing jet makes emergency landing in Philadelphia“.
The cause is not yet unknown and I am no aviation accident expert, but the photos show some sort of apparent catastrophic engine failure shredding the engine and pieces of it ripping into the cabin.
I regularly fly #Southwest in and out of LaGuardia Airport so I can imagine how random this was and how it could happen to anybody.
RIP lost fellow flier that lost their life today.
I wonder if #Trump will take responsibility for this considering he claimed credit for there being no airline fatalities last year.

Control Towers Don’t Eradicate Poor Communications Or Human Error.

Have American Airlines Pilots Become Paranoid Bathroom Attendants?

I am thankful that 9/11 2011 passed solemnly and uneventfully from a security perspective, but I remain concerned, and we must remain vigilant. We are not out of danger, and we are all in this together.

Like everyone else, I was seriously concerned about the threat of new terror attacks on the 10th Anniversary of September 11. I was more worried about vehicle borne or even lone wolf suicide bombings than someone still managing to pull off a terror attack using jet airliners.

So, I read with interest the news reports of two separate planes that caused national security alerts, with fighter jets being scrambled, and passengers being questioned, after landing, for their… drum roll… extended use of the airliner toilets.

news item in particular was very strange… An American Airlines “pilot became nervous when he noticed that several passengers were making frequent trips to the bathroom.”

I am all for safety and being alert, especially on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, but what kind of airliner pilot is more focused on how many people are going to the bathroom than flying the darn plane? Is he SuperPilot that he can see through the locked cockpit door? Or did some ditsy (male or female) flight attendant cause the scare? They should consider taking a job in a restaurant to keep track of bathroom visits by patrons.

Also, I am all for a couple deciding to make out on planes, trains and automobiles, but (if that is indeed what had happened on aFrontier Airlines flight) for a couple to try pulling that off (no pun intended) in an aircraft toilet on 9/11 suggests the Moron gene’s presence.

Maybe airlines should not issue coupons (like drink coupons) on how many times and for how long passengers can go to the bathroom. eBay can set up a new marketplace to trade in toilet time futures.

A separate news report during the hunt for possible terror plotters mentioned how police were searching for stolen vans and similar vehicles.

That made me think… how dumb must be those retards who would steal any vehicle, much less a potential bomb-carrying-capable van on or around 9/11. I really wish they get caught, and even if they’re simply Grand Theft Auto fans, I hope they are shipped to Guantanamo for the crime of being extra stupid, and for causing extra concern for the whole nation.

Finally, I am thankful that 9/11 2011 passed solemnly and uneventfully from a security perspective, but I remain concerned, and we must remain vigilant. We are not out of danger, and we are all in this together.

What were your thoughts on 9/11/2011 and how have your thinking and you changed since 9/11/2001 ?

Northeast vs Southwest Colors, Fly Blue Skies or Sail Pink Seas

Southwest Colors Fly Blue Skies - IMRAN™

Northeast Colors Sail Pink Seas - IMRAN™

In almost every way these images are an opposite of each other. Southwest flying blue skies. Northeast sailing on pink seas.

Bright versus darkening sky. Blue sky vs. pink seas. Jet aircraft vs. yachts. Yet, they both reflect the passion I have for travel, my wanderlust beckoning, forever, to new horizons.

As the evenings got shorter, despite Fall weather, Heron Pointe, on Long Island, NY continued to enjoy mild weather until the sun sets of 2008.

A walk on the boardwalk, a walk on the beach, a look up in the sky, it’s birds, it’s planes. And twinkle, twinkle early stars and Great South Bay buoys.

Another stunning Long Island sunset as a plane turns towards its destination. I am reminded of a novel I read as a teenager, Down To A Sunless Sky.
