Global Human Rights Justice on trial

January 21st, 2015 No comments

Neskovic-CIAFolterreportWolfgang Neskovics, former judge at the German Federal High Court of Justice, released the translation of the CIA report on torture and his analysis, demanding to prosecute and imprison former US statesmen, such as George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, George Tenet and Donald Rumsfeld:

“Criminal prosecution is not only possible, but essential and inevitable.”

“The decision on a possible prosecution is a practical probation-test for the truthfulness and functioning of our legal system.”

Ich versuche beim ersten Schlag immer meine Visitenkarte abzugeben.”

“Gegner am Boden. – Gutes Gefühl!”

“Maxe ist im liegen Weltmeister geworden, ich im stehen.”

Später sagte Dagge zudem:

“Viele Weltmeister sind Alkoholiker geworden, aber ich bin der erste Alkoholiker, der Weltmeister wurde.”

SWR14E bird strike LSZH

September 9th, 2014 No comments

SWR14E is holding over GIPOL for fuel dump after bird strike on takeoff rwy 16 (cleared VEBIT 3 SIERRA).

LX14E-LSZH-BIRDSTRIKE-09SEP2014

During liftoff the A330 had a bird strike with some bigger bird (probably a heron), which was only reported on LSZH DEP frequency (125.950). Listen to what the first officer reported:

LSZH DEP 125.950 1118 UTC:

Due to the missing fuel dump equipment the aircraft was circling for more than 3 hours to burn some fuel before landing on rwy 16 again.

During the whole “incident” the pilots did not declare emergency (squawk 7700), nor “Pan Pan”. The co-Pilot simply reported “vibrations” caused from engine 1 and was busy to omit Cumulus buildups, not shutting down engine 1, as it seemingly has not been damaged.

Here is the full ATC recording between LSZH Controller and LX14E:

ATC transcript LX14E 09SEP2014:

SWR14E: Zurich delivery gruezi wohl das isch Swiss 14E information PAPA Airbus 343 (A330-343X) requesting clearance

LSZH DEP: SWR14E roger thats copied report if you need any assistance or if you prefer to go to a holding

LSZH FINAL APP: SWR14E go ahead
SWR14E: it looks like that we come back for Zurich the reason is that we had a bird strike after the departure what we do now is hold over GIPOL if possible and we try to get below the max landing mass which takes around an hour or more we have just started calculation and we request to reduce the speed to around 180 to get fuel off to reduce the fuel SWR14E
LSZH FINAL APP: SWR14E that is copied you have no speed restrictions and is FL120 still fine or would you like to descend?
