Aviation Safety News: Week 17/2019

Before We Start
What is this? Another topic? Yes. Well, a lot of things happen in Aviation. Good things, bad things, interesting things. Some of those things find their way into this community with their own topic so it can be discussed. However, many interesting things are happening as well, that are “too small” for an individual topic, but still interesting to mention. This is why I want to start this little series with interesting things that happened in the aviation industry over the week. Please note that this series will only include accidents and incidents where no human lives were lost.
