Project #63420 - international logistics

 

Air France Flight 4590 was a Concorde flight operated by Air France which was scheduled to run from Charles de Gaulle International Airport near Paris, to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. On 25 July 2000, it crashed in Gonesse, France. All one hundred passengers and nine crew members on board the flight died. On the ground, four people were killed with one left injured.

 

 

 

What most people don’t realize is that this was a FOD incident. During takeoff, an Air France Concorde (Flight 4590) ran over a piece of metal on the runway.  The piece of metal caused a tire to fail; pieces of the tire ruptured the fuel tank, ignited the fuel and ultimately resulted in a loss of aircraft control that ended with the Concorde crashing into a nearby hotel.

 

 

 

An investigation found that a full runway inspection was canceled just hours before the crash. This is a clear example of why we have a 139 certification program, and an incident such as this would be included in Phase II of the SRM process.

 Madeleine Swain  THE FIRST FATAL FLIGHT OF THE CONCORDE WAS ALSO ITS LAST  FATAL FLIGHT. ON THE  25TH OF JULY 2000 , AIR FRANCE FLIGHT 4590  WAS LEAVING CHARLES DE GAULLE AIRPORT IN  Paris ,  France  EN ROUTE FOR JFK AIRPORT IN  New York  WHEN IT CAUGHT FIRE AND CRASHED INTO THE NEARBY HOTEL HOTELISSIMO.  FOUR PEOPLE ON THE GROUND AND EVERYONE ON BOARD, 100 PASSENGERS AND NINE CREW  WERE KILLED.  The accident was caused by a small strip of titanium which had fallen off on earlier DC-10.  This punctured the tire and the subsequent blowout led to a fractured  fuel tank with fire and engine failure. After the crash, all Concorde s were  grounded while investigations into their safety were carried out. Modifications were made including  burst resistant tires but before services were resumed, the  September 11th  attack  has a severe impact on passenger numbers. Air France seized flights in  May 2003  and  British Airways followed suit five months later. It was a sad  ending for an airplane that had been launched admit such high expectations and for nearly 30 years had been  the last word in glamorous air travel. It was by far the most successful of the only two  supersonic passenger planes ever operated commercially and was revered(ph) for its ability to fly between  New York ,  Paris  and  London  in half the time of other airlines. Its average cruising  speed was marked 2.02 or 2140 kilometers per hour.  Its familiar drooping cone was a design compromise.  Straight in flight, it aided aero-dynamics while cockpit enabled better visibility for the pilots  during landing and takeoff. In  2006 , the Concorde was voted the winner of the great British  designed quest, beating such a high (inaudible  )  and a group of French engineers that are keeping one of the youngest Concordes in near airworthy condition  while the UK society is conducting a campaign to get the aircraft back in the skies by  2010 .  Perhaps the Concorde will fly again one day after all. 

 

 

 

 Infamous places 12305 Fifth Helena Drive Brentwood,  Los Angeles  United States of America

 

 

 

 Madeleine Swain  This was the last home  of the woman Time Magazine called The most delectable sex symbol of the century.  12305 Fifth Helena drive, Brentwood is a surprisingly modest abode for the  woman whose face remains one of the most recognizable on the planet. It was here that  Marilyn Monroe ,  aged only 36 was found dead on the morning of the  5th of August, 1962 .  While it would probably never now be known whether  Marilyn s  death was suicide, murder or a simply a tragic accident,  what can be said categorically is that there will never be another star like her.  At the height of her fame,  Marilyn  seemed to have the entire world in her thrall with spell-binding  performances in films like Some like it hot Bus stop and The Seven-year Rich , she also hit the headlines  by performing 10 shows in four days for American troops in  Korea  in  February 1954 .  Professionally this was triumph for her but it had a personal cost. When asked  to perform, she was actually on a Japanese honeymoon with her second husband, baseball legend  Joe Dimaggio  who she had married the month before.  Dimaggio  wasn t pleased with the diversion and other cracks  in their marriage led to a divorce, just 274 days after they wed. Her third marriage with the  great playwright  Arthur Miller  was also doomed, surviving only four and a half years.  To this day, a myriad of rumors and conspiracy theories surround not only the method of  Marilyn s  demise  but just what extent her alleged lovers  President Kennedy  and his brother  Robert  were involved.  With eyewitness reports that  Bobby  visited her house on the night she died.  Her funeral was with the Westwood Memorial Park Chapel in Hollywood with only 30 people attending.  The eulogy was delivered by her trusted acting coach  Lee Strasberg  and the end of the service was marked by  Judy Garland S  recording of Over the Rainbow from The Wizard of Oz . Whether it was simply her early death  but where the  Marilyn s  star really did shine by than most any other she was fated not to be forgotten  not by the public or by her nearest and dearest. Despite their split,  Joe Dimaggio  remained very close to her. For 20 years after her death, he had a dozen red roses send to her  crypt three times a week. He died in March 1999  having never remarried.
