  • Air Berlin pilots suspended after saying 'dignified goodbye' with fly-by stunt at Düsseldorf Airport

    Golocal247.com news

    The pilots of an Air Berlin flight that performed a fly-past during the insolvent carrier's last long-haul flight to its hub in Düsseldorf have been suspended, the airline said on Wednesday. When coming into land from Miami on Monday morning, the A330 jet flew low across the runway, then pulled up and banked sharply to the left before landing on its second approach. Pilots are trained in such "go-around" procedures for aborted landings, but the manoeuvre was unusual and the German aviation authorities are investigating. "In aviation, safety always comes first. We are taking the incident very seriously," an Air Berlin spokesman said. The Air Berlin pilot had requested permission from the tower to make a left turn should a go-around be necessary. "We wanted to make a mark, a dignified and emotional goodbye," the Air Berlin pilot was quoted as saying by German broadcaster ZDF. His identity was not given. Another pilot for a different carrier told Reuters that a go-around should be performed only for operational or safety reasons. "Electing to do one if it is known not to be required adds an unnecessary risk," he said. Several videos of the incident can be viewed online. In one, control tower staff can be heard exclaiming as the plane flies past, with one person saying: "We are all in awe." The Air Berlin spokesman said the videos raised questions that had to be answered as part of the investigation. Air Berlin filed for insolvency on August 15 and Lufthansa has signed a deal to buy large parts of its operations. The airline will fly its final short-haul flights under the Air Berlin brand at the end of this month.

  • Hillary Clinton: 'Picking fights with Kim Jong-un puts a smile on his face'

    Golocal247.com news

    Former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday that “cavalier” threats to start war on the Korean peninsula are “dangerous and short-sighted“, urging the United States to get all parties to the negotiating table. Mrs Clinton also called on China to take a “more out front role" in enforcing sanctions against North Korea aimed at curbing its missile and nuclear development. “There is no need for us to be bellicose and aggressive (over North Korea),” said Mrs Clinton at a forum in the South Korean capital Seoul, stressing the need for greater pressure on North Korea and diplomacy to bring Pyongyang to talks. Tensions between Pyongyang and Washington have soared following a series of weapons tests by North Korea and a string of increasingly bellicose exchanges between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. “Picking fights with Kim Jong-un puts a smile on his face," Mrs Clinton said, but did not mention Mr Trump by name. North Korea | Kim Jong-un’s fiery relationship with the US Mrs Clinton also indirectly referred to Mr Trump’s insults towards North Korea on Twitter, saying “the insults on Twitter have benefited North Korea, I don’t think they’ve benefited the United States". The tweets are making future negotiations with North Korea difficult, she said, adding that Washington should “incessantly, persistently work” to get involved parties to dialogue with North Korea. The war of words has seen Trump call the North Korean leader “little rocket man” on a suicide mission, and vowed to destroy North Korea if it threatens the United States or its allies. North Korea has in turn called Trump “mentally deranged“. Clinton, a former U.S. secretary of state, said Washington’s allies have increasingly been expressing concerns over the reliability of the United States, advising Washington to avoid becoming sidelined with North Korean threats and be “as forcefully patient” as possible. Trump: We'll deal with 'Little Rocket Man' Kim Jong-un 01:34 Regarding China’s role in reining in North Korea, Clinton said Beijing would be better off in taking a “more out front role” in trying to “tighten and absolutely enforce sanctions“against North Korea. Clinton said China’s retaliatory actions against South Korean companies doing business in China following the deployment of a U.S. anti-missile system in South Korea would be unnecessary had Beijing done a better job containing and deterring North Korea. China has been curbing South Korean businesses there since Seoul decided to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system, saying its powerful radar could be used to pierce its territory. South Korea and the United States have repeatedly told China that THAAD aims only to defend against North Korea’s missile threats. “The Chinese can’t have it both ways. They can’t do less than they could to tighten economic pressures on North Korea and same time discount the real threat South Korea and its citizens face,” she said.

    By Tina Bellon NEW YORK (Reuters) - Victims of mass shootings in the United States often win little or no damages from perpetrators but the Las Vegas massacre may be different because the shooter is thought to have been a wealthy man, lawyers said. While there are often few assets to collect from the young men who typically carry out these killings, Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, 64, is thought to have had multi-million-dollar investments in buildings across Texas and California. "It definitely depends on the assets in the estate whether you pursue that claim," said Theida Salazar, a Los Angeles attorney who represented one of the victim's families in the 2015 shooting in San Bernadino, California.

    By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Central Intelligence Agency thought for months that it had mistakenly shredded a massive U.S. Senate report on its use of waterboarding and other "enhanced interrogation techniques" before suddenly discovering that its copy had not been lost after all, an agency official said on Tuesday. "It's embarrassing and I have apologized," Christopher Sharpley, the acting CIA Inspector General, told the Senate Intelligence Committee during his confirmation hearing as President Donald Trump's nominee for the position. Championed by Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein when she chaired the Senate panel, the "torture report," as it is known, is the result of a six-year investigation into so-called enhanced interrogation techniques used by the CIA after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, during the administration of Republican President George W. Bush.

  • Wanted man turns himself in after losing Facebook bet with police  

    Golocal247.com news

    A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. “I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. “And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.” In a follow-up post, the department said he “may or may not be a man of his word,” adding, “it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.” The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. “Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said. “He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.” Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?
