Wait were you the pilot?

I heard about this personally. Some serious stuff I must say!

By the way @dylonez both Max and Aussie are doing a wonderful job! Max just doesn’t do it anymore so Aussie took over for him

Since Max isn’t doing it, you might as well use his title.


Great attempt! I don’t understand however why some incidents like the Saratov one are here. Are they there because the investigation reports came on that day?

No joke I’m not a pilot, yet. I said it because infinte flight got qantas 737-800 in Infinte Flight and I’m being flying it all week :).

What about the sad fatal accident at RAF Valley?

The Aviation Herald will report only about commercial flights or commercial operators involving airplanes with 19 passenger seats or more.
So accidents like the one at RAF Valley will not be reported in the Aviation Herald.


Max has given up on it. So I had restored it :)

A Volaris Airbus A321-200, registration XA-VLV performing flight Y4-737 from Guadalajara to Mexico City (Mexico), was on final approach to Mexico City’s runway 05R when the first officer fainted. The captain declared Mayday and continued the approach for a safe landing on runway 05R.

Mexico’s Accident Investigation Board rated the occurrence a serious incident and opened an investigation.
