    THESE are Macy's Thanksgiving Parade's most infamous balloon accidents from Sonic bursting to a cat that almost caused a plane crash. The spectacular annual event has come a long way since it was first held on November 27, 1924, when it was called the Macy's Christmas Parade and was without massive floating balloons. 5Back in 1993, the Sonic the Hedgehog balloon was plagued by strong windsCredit: Getty 5Barney the Dinosaur had a mishap in the 1997 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day ParadeCredit: Getty As multiple decades have passed since the first parade, here's a look back at some of the shocking mishaps that occurred over the years. SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Back in 1993, the Sonic the Hedgehog balloon was plagued by strong winds, which caused the inflatable character to crash into a pole on West 58th street. Sonic the Hedgehog wasn't strong enough for the wind speeds and got hit in the left eye with a lamp post. The impact caused a section of the balloon to tear and a part of the streetlight to fall into the paradegoers. Both a 10-year-old...

    Engine failure that caused a Jetstar flight to veer to one side of a Brisbane Airport runway and abort take off was caused by a screwdriver tip left behind during maintenance. An Australian Transport Safety Bureau investigation determined the tool piece had been inside the engine for more than 100 flights before the incident on October 23 last year. Crew aboard the Airbus A320 felt a vibration and heard a popping noise that 'rapidly grew faster and faster' as power was applied for take off on the flight to Cairns. The screwdriver tip (pictured) was left in the Jetstar plane's engine for more than 100 flights  The engine on the flight from Brisbane to Cairns burst into flames moments before take-off and the passengers disembarked safely (stock image)  It diverged to the right of the runway's centre line despite the first officer applying the full left direction rudder pedal. The plane had reached a ground speed of 30 knots, about 55km/h. Passengers, an air traffic controller and crew of another aircraft saw flames momentarily flare from the plane's...
    The 46 Boston teenagers who were accused of refusing to wear masks on an American Airlines plane en route to the Bahamas were not responsible for the flight being delayed an entire day, the tour company behind the graduation trip says.  AA Flight 893, which was bound for Nassau, faced extensive delays on Monday after the mask-wearing ordeal on the plane at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.  Fellow passengers say the teens, who had just graduated from Winthrop High School outside of Boston, refused to wear their masks and became disruptive on the plane.  The airline said the delay was the result of non-compliance with the federal mask mandate and that the passengers involved refused to follow crew member instructions.  But the owner of Breakaway Beach, a private tour company they had booked their trip through, says the airline wrongly punished the entire group after just one teenager refused to wear their mask.  AA Flight 893, which was bound for Nassau, faced extensive delays on Monday after the mask-wearing ordeal on the plane at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Passenger Stephanie Krzywanski...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A pilot’s aggressive takeoff led to an aerodynamic stall, causing the 2019 crash of a skydiving plane in Hawaii that killed all 11 people on board, government safety investigators have determined. The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board said the stall caused a loss of control at an altitude that was too low for the pilot to recover. The crash in Mokuleia, Hawaii, was one of the most deadly in U.S. civil aviation in recent memory. The board also found that the Beech King Air 65-A-90 that crashed went into a stall and spin in 2016 while in California, twisting the left wing. The wing wasn’t repaired, leaving the plane in an “unairworthy condition.” The NTSB found that the damage reduced the margin for an aerodynamic stall and could cause the plane to roll left under certain conditions. An aerodynamic stall happens when a plane loses lift under its wings due to a high angle of the nose and air speed that’s too low. The agency issued a report on the probable cause of the crash on...

    BERLIN (AP) — Swiss investigators said Thursday that “high-risk flying” by the pilots of a vintage propeller plane led to a 2018 crash in the Alps that killed all 20 people on board. The 79-year-old Junkers Ju-52 operated by local airline Ju-Air crashed in southeastern Switzerland on Aug. 4, 2018. The airplane, which was carrying 17 passengers and three crew members, slammed near-vertically into a mountain. It was flying back from Locarno in southern Switzerland to its base near Zurich. The Swiss Transportation Safety Investigation Board said in its final report that “the pilots’ high-risk flying was a direct cause of the accident.” As they entered a narrow mountain valley, “the flight crew piloted the aircraft at low altitude, with no possibility of an alternative flight path and at an airspeed that was dangerously low for the circumstances,” investigators said. As the plane hit turbulence in the valley, “the high-risk manner of flying through these not unusual turbulences caused the pilots to lose control of the aircraft,” they added. The plane was flying too low to have enough...
    During a flight, a russian stewardess filmed from the cockpit electric shocks caused by a strange meteorological phenomenon known as “Fire of San Telmo”, and posted them on Instagram account. Although the powerful gusts are scary to see them, the woman explained that in general it does not cause any type of damage to the plane and, therefore, is not dangerous. Julia Bocco, such her name, explained on her Instagram account that “it is not lightning.” “They are the lights of Santa Elma. They can only be seen from the cockpit. And the flashes of the strobes of the plane while flying in the cloud, “he added. Is about an electroluminescent corona discharge caused by ionization of the air within the strong electric field caused by electrical storms. The San Telmo fire was observed since ancient times by sailors on the masts of ships.
    California police arrested 54-year-old Hung Nguyen (pictured) who was suspected of drunk driving when he smashed his SUV into parked planes at a small airport on Saturday California police arrested a 54-year-old man suspected of drunk driving after he crashed his SUV into parked planes at an airport over the weekend.  Hung Nguyen was taken into custody Saturday evening when deputies from the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office responded to reports of a collision at the Reid-Hillview Airport in San Jose.  According to police, the incident occurred around 4.45pm when Nguyen was heading down Cunningham Avenue in his midsize SUV.  While driving east, authorities said he went through two fences and across two runways before striking a small parked plane.  That collision created a domino effect that caused damage to two more parked planes. Images from the incident also show the wall of a hangar that was torn down due to the impact from the crash.  Another photo showed a parked car that appeared to suffer some damage from the hangar wall.   While driving east, authorities said he went...

    DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran's Civil Aviation Organisation blamed a misalignment of a radar system and lack of communication between the air defence operator and his commanders for the accidental downing of a Ukrainian passenger plane in January that killed 176 people aboard. Iran's Revolutionary Guards shot down the Ukraine International Airlines flight with a ground-to-air missile on Jan. 8 shortly after the plane took off from Tehran,in what Tehran later acknowledged as a “disastrous mistake” by forces who were on high alert during a confrontation with the United States. "A mistake in aligning the radar system had caused human error. An operator had forgotten to re-adjust the direction on the radar system after moving to a new position, an error that contributed to misreading the radar's data," an interim report on the Civil Aviation Organisation (CAO) website said. The CAO report, which was published on late Saturday, said the missile battery that targeted the passenger plane had been relocated and "was not properly reoriented". The downing occurred at a time of high tension between longtime foes Iran and the United...
    TORONTO (AP) — Canada’s Air Force said Monday it’s focusing on a bird strike as the likely reason a Snowbird aerobatic plane crashed in British Columbia last month. The Snowbirds had been in the midst of a cross-country tour aimed at boosting morale during the COVID-19 pandemic when one of the planes crashed after takeoff, killing the spokesperson for the team and injuring the pilot. A preliminary investigation report posted by The Royal Canadian Air Force said video footage of the plane just before the crash showed a bird very close to the plane’s right engine intake “during the critical phase of take-off.” The crash near Kamloops killed Air Force Capt. Jenn Casey, a public-affairs officer riding as a passenger, and seriously injured the pilot. Though the plane crashed in a populated area, nobody on the ground was badly injured. The report said the investigation will continue to probe the possibility of a bird strike and whether the Tutor jet’s escape devices worked properly. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press.
