    Vintage plane crash in Switzerland kills all 20 people on boardTwenty people were killed when a vintage aircraft operating a sightseeing flight over Switzerland crashed into the Alps over the weekend. There were no survivors, Swiss police announced yesterday (SUN) as a search and rescue operation was called off. The historic Junckers Ju-52 propellor plane disppeared on Saturday afternoon after taking off from Locarno in southern Switzerland on its way to a military airfield near Zurich. On board were three crew members and 17 passengers aged between 42 and 84 who had paid for the chance to travel on the 1930s-era aircraft. Among the passengers were an Austrian couple travelling with their grown-up son. The rest were believed to be Swiss. Locator: WWII vintage plane crash The wreckage of the aircraft was found 8,330 feet above sea level near Piz Segnas in the remote and rugged mountains of eastern Switzerland. “Based on the situation at the crash site we can say that the aircraft hit the ground almost vertically at a relatively high speed,” Daniel Knecht, head of aviation at the Swiss Accident Investigation Board, told a press conference on Sunday The cause of the accident is unclear, but investigators said they could not rule out a link to the current heatwave in Europe. Eleven men and nine women between the ages of 42 and 84 were killed. Credit: AP “What we can rule out at this point is a mid-air collision before the crash, either with another aircraft or with some other obstacle such as a cable,” Mr Knehct said. There was no indication of any external interference with the flight, he added.  Although the Junckers aircraft was almost 80 years old, it was serviced after every 35 hours of flying time and was believed to be in good condition after its most recent service at the end of July. Both pilots were experienced and had flown for regular civilian airlines and the Swiss air force.

The historic aircraft was not fitted with a black box or other modern data recording devices that could help explain what happened. The German-made Junckers Ju-52 was first produced in 1932 and was one of the earliest civilian passenger aircraft. During the 1930s it was the most widely used aircraft type in Europe. Affectionaly known in German as Tante Ju, or Auntie Ju, Ju-52s are chiefly remembered in Switzerland for providing a lifeline to parts of the country that were cut off by heavy avalances in 1952.

It had previously been used for tourist flights in Germany. Ju-Air said on Sunday it had suspended all operations until further notice in the wake of the crash. “The Ju-Air team is deeply saddened and our thoughts are with the passengers, the crew and families and friends of the victims,” the company said in a statement posted on its website. In a separate incident a family of four were killed when their light aircraft crashed near Lucerne, in central Switzerland, on Saturday. The family was from the local area. Two children were among the dead.

    Ohio special election tests the 'Lamb model' for Democrats in conservative districtsIn March, centrist Democrat Conor Lamb won a House seat in a conservative Pennsylvania district. Since then, the “Lamb model” has been followed by candidates in Republican-leaning districts around the country. Tuesday’s special election in Ohio will be the test of whether the Lamb model still holds.

    Hiroshima bomber tasted lead after nuclear blast, rediscovered Enola Gay recordings revealTaped recordings and transcripts of interviews with the pilot and crew of the Enola Gay have been donated to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, 40 years after they were apparently lost and 73 years after the aircraft dropped the first atomic bomb used in warfare on the city. The 27 tapes cover 30 hours of interviews and are accompanied by 570 pages of typed transcripts that were collected by Gordon Thomas and Max Morgan-Witts before the publication of their book, “Enola Gay: Mission to Hiroshima”, in 1977. Officials of the museum told the Mainichi newspaper that it had been feared that the recordings had been subsequently lost.  They added that the recordings and documents are historically important to the overall story of the attack on Hiroshima because they reveal what was happening inside the aircraft during the mission as well as the feelings of the crew.  The transcript records Paul Tibbets, the pilot of the B-29 Superfortress, stating that the mission was shrouded in secrecy and that the crew had been issued with handguns and cyanide tablets in case they were shot down.  Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui (R) offers a new list of A-bomb dead, including individuals who died since last year's anniversary from the side effects of radiation Credit: AFP Mr Tibbets also said he had a taste like lead in his mouth the instant the bomb detonated above the city and a “big relief”.  “I got the brilliance. I tasted it. Yeah, I could taste it. It tasted like lead”, Mr Tibbets said. “And this was because of the fillings in my teeth. So that’s radiation, see. So I got this lead taste in my mouth and that was a big relief - I knew she had blown”.  Mr Tibbets put the Enola Gay into an evasive turn immediately after the bomb detonated, but the crew could feel the shockwave of the blast.  “If you can imagine yourself inside a tin building and somebody comes along on the outside and hits it with a hammer, you get the sound effect”, he said, adding that he could also see the mushroom cloud expanding over the city through his screen.  Doves fly over the Peace Memorial Park with the Atomic Bomb Dome in the background, at a ceremony in Hiroshima Credit: Reuters The recordings include comments by Thomas Ferebee, the bombardier who released the atomic bomb, and three other crew members.  The recordings were found in 2017 among the effects of a Japanese person, who has not been named, and were donated to the museum by his family.  On Friday, a minute’s silence was marked at 8:15am - the moment the bomb detonated above what is today Hiroshima’s Peace Park - in memory of those killed in the attack. An estimated 100,000 people died in the initial blast or subsequently of radiation poisoning. A second attack was conducted three days later against the city of Nagasaki, killing around 80,000 people, before Japan surrendered and ended World War II.  Kazumi Matsui, the mayor of Hiroshima, used his address at the memorial event to underline the horror of the first nuclear attack and call for more efforts to rid the world of atomic weapons.

    Court's AT&T-Time Warner ruling 'clearly erroneous': US gov'tThe US Justice Department attacked Monday a court ruling that allowed June's $85 billion mega-merger between AT&T and Time Warner to go forward, saying a federal judge had relied on faulty economics. The June decision by US District Judge Richard Leon had dealt a stinging defeat to the Justice Department and handed a total victory to the companies. "The court agreed that Time Warner enjoyed bargaining leverage before the merger but it illogically and erroneously concluded that Time Warner will have no increased leverage post-merger because blackouts are 'infeasible' so Time Warner cannot credibly threaten them," the brief said.

    Brazil: judge shuts border to Venezuelan migrants fleeing hunger and hardshipA judge in Brazil has blocked Venezuelans from entering the border state of Roraima as local authorities harden their stance against the flood of migrants fleeing hunger and hardship in their home country. Judge Helder Barreto said he had suspended the entry of Venezuelan immigrants until the conditions for a “humanitarian reception” are created but activists working with migrants attacked it as “absurd”. Sister Telma Lage from the non-profit Migration and Human Rights Institute, which helps vulnerable migrants in Roraima’s capital Boa Vista, said the judge had overstepped his authority.
