Passengers push plane after brakes fail

Passengers on a Russian plane disembarked in minus 52C to push their jet – after its brakes froze in the icy temperatures.

The UTair aircraft ‘literally froze on the ground at Igarka airport, above the Arctic Circle,’ reported The Siberian Times.

‘Fearing the UTair service to regional capital Krasnoyarsk could be delayed, many of the 70 passengers used brute strength to free the 30 ton Tupolev 134.’

The passengers pushed the plane’s wings, freeing the frozen brakes, and moving it backwards.

Problems developed on one of the coldest days of the year because ‘the wrong kind of grease was used for the landing gear’ – unsuitable for Far North locations, it was reported.

Vladimir Artemenko, a director of Katekavia, which ran the flight jointly with UTair claimed the Tu-134 was ‘technically serviceable’, but the chilly temperatures led it to freeze up.

The airport tractor had failed to move the plane.

‘When people pushed the plane, the wheel cranked out, and then the aircraft could continue to move,’ he said.

Indian plane hits a buffalo during take off

An Indian airliner crashed into a stray buffalo during take-off from the western city of Surat although no passengers or crew were hurt, the plane’s operator, Spice Jet Ltd, said on Friday.

The airline was forced to ground the Boeing 737 which suffered “substantial damages”, it said.

SpiceJet said the buffalo, which was killed in the accident on Thursday evening, was “essentially invisible” against a dark background. Passengers on the Delhi-bound aircraft were transferred on to another plane, SpiceJet said.

“Stray animals are a growing menace in some airports,” SpiceJet said in a statement.

“This incident has affected our regular operations and hence SpiceJet flights from Surat will now be suspended after this incident.”

Poorly maintained fences at some Indian airports mean animals can stray onto runways.

Man angers police by parking an aeroplane outside a bar

A man who taxied a light plane down a street in Australia, and parked it at a pub while he went inside for a drink, has been charged by police.

The 37-year-old man, a resident of Australia, wheeled the wingless Beechcraft two-seater into the car park of the local bar on Friday afternoon.

He then casually stepped into the pub and ordered a drink. Police suspect the stunt was a Halloween prank, and officers questioned the man when they spotted the conspicuous vehicle in the parking lot.

He passed an alcohol breath test at the scene and, while he admitted that he did not own a pilot’s licence, the plane had not left the ground or caused any accidents.

Eventually, the police contented themselves with charges relating to endangering human life, with Sergeant Mark McKenzie telling reporters the propeller of the plane had been operating and posed a threat.

Having said that, not every police officer was taking it seriously.  The man faces Newman Magistrate’s Court on November 18

Sergeant McKenzie said: ‘It was a pretty stupid thing to do. Kids were coming home from school. It could have been very ugly. All he needed was one gust of wind… because without the wings, it’s not stable.’
