According to Aviation Herald the A320 was flight LA-2213 from Lima to Juliaca (Peru) with 102 passengers and 6 crew and was accelerating for takeoff from Lima’s runway 16 at about 15:11L (20:11Z) when multiple fire trucks with flashing lights and sirens sounding crossed the runway in front of the accelerating aircraft.

“The crew rejected takeoff at high speed (at about 125 knots over ground) but wasn’t able to avoid contact with fire truck #3 although the truck tried to turn around turning right (into the direction of the aircraft).

“The right main gear collapsed causing the aircraft to veer right towards the right-hand runway edge coming to a stop partially off the runway about 2500 meters/8300 feet down the runway. A fire erupted around the right-hand engine (PW1127G), and occupants were able to evacuate the aircraft. Initial reports suggest 24 passengers received injuries.

“The aircraft sustained substantial damage, the fire truck was destroyed. According to preliminary reports, the two firefighters on board the truck involved in the collision did not survive” Aviation Herald said.

The airline reported all occupants of the aircraft survived the accident.

The head of the firefighters at Lima Airport reported that two firefighters perished in the accident, and a third was taken to a hospital with injuries Aviation Herald reported.

Bird Strikes

According to Aviation Herald, the 737 was on approach to Kansas City’s runway 1R about to join the right hand downwind while descending through 6000 feet about 8nm abeam of the runway when the crew declared emergency reporting they had received a bird strike and had lost their airspeed indicators.

The crew reported they had the runway in sight and were instantly cleared for the visual approach for runway 01R. The aircraft continued for a safe landing on runway 1R about 8 minutes after the bird strike. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage.

It appears the engine cowling took the brunt of the impact along with the radome.

Korean Air Introduces New Inflight Wines

Korean Air

Korean Air has showcased its selection of new inflight wines, which will be served onboard from March 2023.

The airline recently presented 50 newly-selected inflight wines, including 19 First Class, 21 Prestige Class, and 10 Economy Class selections at the Seoul Four Seasons Hotel.

According to Kenneth Chang, Korean Air Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, “as the inflight wine selection strongly impacts the customers’ first impression of the airline’s service levels, we gave careful deliberation to each stage of the selection process.”

Korean Air has collaborated with Marc Almert, who carries the accolade of “World’s Best Sommelier 2019,” as awarded by the International Sommelier Association. The airline also referred to wine data collected last year and created a list of no less than 900 wines in a variety of categories.

Korean Air along with Marc Almert then whittled down the list to a shortlist of 150 wines of various grape varieties, vintages and regions, including France, Spain, the US and Australia.

The two wine experts, Marc Almert and Sang Jun Lee, then tasted and evaluated each wine to bring the selection down to 50 wines, which will be served on board.

One of the new wines selected for First Class is an Australian Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz, a concentrated wine produced from 100 per cent Shiraz grapes with the aroma of rich pepper, mint and eucalyptus. The strong flavour, unique to Shiraz, makes for a luxurious balance, harmonizing well with the first-class inflight meal options, such as steak and Korean cuisine.

A new champagne for First Class has been selected, Henri Giraud Ay Grand Cru Brut MV, featuring silky softness and rich bubbles.

Among the high-quality wines selected for Prestige Class was the La Perriere Megalithe Sancerre, a white wine from the Loire Valley. The wine is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes, harvested by hand, with half of them aged in oak barrels for more than six months. The wine features the unique fresh acidity of Sauvignon Blanc, soft and subtle with the aftertaste of oak-aged wine.

Additionally, completely new to inflight service is Nik Weis Urban Riesling, produced in Moselle, Germany, which will be served in Korean Air’s economy class. It was evaluated that the Riesling’s refreshing scent and mild flavour would harmonize well with inflight meals.

Mr Almert, who participated in the wine selection, is known as one of the world’s best sommeliers and is from Cologne, Germany. In 2019, at the age of 27, he won the title of the youngest champion at the “World Best Sommelier Competition” organized by the International Sommelier Association. He is currently pursuing his career as the chief sommelier at Baur au Lac, a luxury hotel in Zurich, Switzerland.

Sang Jun Lee, who also participated in the wine selection, is a sommelier at KAL Hotel Network. His experience includes overseeing the wine selection at the Incheon 2014 Asian Games.

When considering the choices for new inflight wines, the sommeliers considered the cabin environment during the flight and the pairing of the wines with inflight meals.

Mr Almert said, “It was a huge task selecting the wines from so many fine options on the long list. The cabin pressure and a drier environment can distort the taste of some wines and we took this into consideration and chose fruity and aromatic wines that can perfectly compliment the inflight cuisine.”

Korean Air will gradually introduce new onboard wines from March 2023.

In addition to new inflight wines, the airline is also planning significant changes to its inflight cuisine. Some changes have also recently commenced; the airline started serving new Korean cuisine options including braised mackerel and spicy pork lettuce wraps in March this year and bulgogi rice with acorn jelly in cold broth and spicy noodles in July.

The increase in Korean dishes available onboard reflects the growing global awareness of Korean culture and demand for Korean food.

Earlier this year the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced his intention to build another AN-225 MRIYA aircraft, dedicating this project to the memory of pilots who died in the war and, in particular, during the defence of Mariupol.

“But in this case, it’s not a matter of money, it’s a matter of ambition. Ukroboronprom, the Antonov team, approached us. This is a question of the image of our country and all the excellent professional pilots who died in this war,” Mr Zelensky said.

AN-225
35,000 people turned out in Perth, Australia to greet the AN-225 on her first visit downunder.

“How much they have done, and today we can already say how many lives of people who remained in Mariupol, especially in Azovstal they saved … How many pilots gave their lives to bring everything there, from weapons to water. And how many wounded they took from there. A large number of these people died heroically,” the President said.

The world’s largest transport aircraft, the AN-225 MRIYA was destroyed during the battles for the airport Gostomel at the end of February 2022.

AN-225 MRIYA holds a series of world records for the transportation of commercial cargo.

There is a second unfinished MRIYA with the fuselage almost complete along with the critical wing box to which the wings are attached.

The wings, tail and engines of the MRIYA, severely damaged in February, are relatively intact and may be able to be repaired and used for the second aircraft.

In an earlier post, the Antonov, which operates the AN-225 and the smaller AN-124 said that “the destruction of the legendary, unique An-225 plane by the Russians became a heavy blow not only for the “ANTONOV” company but also for the entire world community. Therefore, for us, the restoration of “Dreams” is an important task!”

With its maiden flight in late 1988, the Mriya became the world’s heaviest aircraft with the largest wingspan (88.4 meters).

Throughout its 30 years in service, it set over 200 world records, including for the heaviest cargo load (253.8 tons) ever lifted by an aircraft.
