The Metropolitan Police said they had been called to reports of a collision on Lavender Hill, near London's busy Clapham Junction train station. "The driver has been taken to a south London hospital. A number of passengers were treated by London Ambulance Service (LAS) at the scene," police said in a statement. "Two passengers remain trapped on the upper deck. The road is currently closed to traffic," it added.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogWASHINGTON: US aviation authorities are looking into an incident involving an Air Canada plane that nearly landed on a crowded taxiway instead of a runway at San Francisco airport, officials said Tuesday. The Air Canada Airbus A320 was cleared to land on Runway 28-Right at San Francisco International Airport shortly before midnight on Friday, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said. "However, the pilot inadvertently lined up for Taxiway C, which runs parallel to the runway," the FAA said in a statement. "An air traffic controller sent the Air Canada jet around. The plane made another approach and landed without incident," the statement added. Four planes were lined up on Taxiway C awaiting clearance to take off when the Air Canada aircraft, which had 135 passengers and five crew members on board, was diverted by the control tower. The FAA is investigating how close the Air Canada plane ? Flight AC759 flying from Toronto to San Francisco ? came to the aircraft that were lined up on Taxiway C. The incident was first reported by The Mercury News, which cited aviation experts as saying that a potentially horrific accident had been narrowly averted. "If it is true, what happened probably came close to the greatest aviation disaster in history," Ross Aimer, a retired United Airlines captain, told the newspaper. "If you could imagine an Airbus colliding with four passenger aircraft wide bodies, full of fuel and passengers, then you can imagine how horrific this could have been," he said. Air Canada said in a statement that it was investigating the circumstances of the go-around involving its plane and has "no additional information to offer" at this time. An audio recording of the radio exchanges between air traffic control and the pilot of Air Canada 759 can be heard online. On the recording, the Air Canada pilot acknowledges instructions from the tower that he should land on Runway 28R or 28-Right. The San Francisco airport has two runways that run parallel to each other: 28-Right and 28-Left. Also running parallel to Runway 28-Right is a taxiway ? Taxiway C ? where planes line up single file to await clearance to take off. Just moments after receiving permission to land on Runway 28-Right, the Air Canada pilot returns to the radio sensing that something is amiss. "Uh, Tower, I just want to confirm ? this is Air Canada 759 ? we see some lights on the runway there, across the runway, can you confirm we're clear to land?" The tower responds: "Air Canada 759 confirmed clear to land Runway 28-Right. There is no one on 28-Right but you." "OK, Air Canada 759," the pilot replies. At this point, an unidentified man's voice breaks in ? presumably a pilot in one of the aircraft waiting to take off. "Where's this guy going? He's on the taxiway," he says. Air traffic control immediately tells the Air Canada pilot not to land. "Air Canada go around," the tower says. "In the go-around, Air Canada 759," the pilot responds. The pilot of a United Airlines plane on the ground tells the tower meanwhile that "Air Canada flew directly over us". "Yeah, I saw that guys," the Tower replies.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogA small plane crashed on the 405 Freeway near John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, US, June 30, 2017. Courtesy of Rafi Mamalian/Handout via REUTERS LOS ANGELES: A small plane crash-landed on a freeway in Orange County, California, on Friday morning, critically injuring two people on board and snarling traffic on a major north-south artery through the area, authorities said. The fiery crash was captured on cell-phone video by a driver and broadcast on local KABC-TV. It showed the twin-engine Cessna 310 as it passed low over the northbound side of the San Diego (405) Freeway in southern California before slamming into the ground on the southbound lanes. The aircraft, which appeared to be rapidly losing power, is seen levelling out slightly before hitting the ground and bursting into flames about 1,000 feet from a runway at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said the pilot declared an emergency shortly after taking off from John Wayne airport and was trying to return there when the plane crashed at about 9:35 AM local time. Captain Larry Kurtz of the Orange County Fire Authority told KABC that the plane clipped a car on the freeway immediately before crashing, but the occupants of the vehicle were not hurt. Televised images showed the wreckage resting in the southbound lanes of the freeway immediately adjacent to John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, covered in fire-retardant foam and surrounded by police and firefighters. The freeway, the main north-south route through southern Orange County, was shut in both directions for about an hour before the northbound side and one southbound lane was reopened. Still, traffic remained backed up for miles in both directions some two hours after the incident. Arrivals were halted at the airport for about 45 minutes after the crash, and officials there advised travellers to arrive several hours early for flights. An Orange County sheriff's spokesman said that two people, identified only as a male and female, had been pulled from the wreckage of the plane and were being taken to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. The plane was still on the freeway several hours after the crash and investigators for the National Transportation Safety Board, Federal Aviation Administration and John Wayne Airport were said to be en route to the scene.

waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogDefending champion Novak Djokovic crashed out of the French Open on Wednesday, sparking fresh fears over his appetite for the sport he once dominated as Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray made the semi-finals. World number two Djokovic slumped to a stunning 7-6 (7/5), 6-3, 6-0 quarter-final loss to Dominic Thiem for his earliest exit in Paris in seven years. Nadal, chasing a 10th Roland Garros title, will face 23-year-old Thiem after making the last four without breaking sweat. He was 6-2, 2-0 up on Pablo Carreno Busta when his Spanish compatriot quit with an abdominal injury. Friday's other semi-final will pitch world number one Murray, the runner-up to Djokovic in 2016, against 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka. Murray made the semi-finals for the fifth time with a 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (7/0), 6-1 win over Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishikori. Wawrinka became the oldest French Open semi-finalist in 32 years when he brushed aside Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-3, 6-1. Djokovic, who had brought in Andre Agassi as coach in an effort to boost his flagging career, hinted he may step back from the sport to regroup even with Wimbledon fast approaching. "Trust me, I'm thinking about many things, especially in the last couple months," he said. "At the same time, I have responsibility to the game itself, towards others. We'll see. Obviously it's not an easy decision to make, but I will see how I feel after Roland Garros and then decide what to do next." Wednesday's defeat to Thiem was Djokovic's first straight-sets loss at a major in four years and comes just 12 months after he completed the career Grand Slam in Paris. Djokovic 'up for challenge' He then also held all four majors and became the first man to break the $100 million prize money barrier. Wednesday saw him suffer a first 6-0 'bagel' at a Slam since the 2005 US Open while the defeat will see him slip out of the world's top two for the first time in six years. "All the top players go through this. It's a big challenge but I am up for it," said Djokovic who was also runner-up in Paris in 2012, 2014 and 2015. Thiem had lost to the Serb in the semi-finals last year and took just one game in a straight-sets loss in Rome in May. His shock quarter-final victory was his first in six meetings with the 12-time major winner. Austrian sixth seed Thiem is the only man to beat Nadal on clay this year -- his Rome quarter-final success offsetting losses in the final in Barcelona and Madrid. "It's going to be the toughest match you can imagine," admitted the 23-year-old. Fourth seed Nadal recorded his 100th best-of-five-sets victory on clay -- from just 102 matches. He will be playing in his 10th semi-final in Paris and has made it having lost just 22 games through five matches. Bjorn Borg surrendered just 32 games on his way to the 1978 French Open, but Nadal insisted he has no interest in such records. "I don't know how many games I lost this year, but I really don't care about this. I only care that I am in the semi-finals," said Nadal. Murray advanced to his fourth straight semi-final in Paris, defeating Nishikori to avenge his loss to the Japanese star at the US Open last year. The Scot set up a semi-final rematch with third seed Wawrinka after beating the Swiss in four sets at the same stage a year ago. "He's played fantastic this tournament so far," Murray said of the 32-year-old, the oldest Roland Garros semi-finalist since Jimmy Connors in 1985. Like Nadal and Thiem, Wawrinka has not lost a set on his way to a third successive semi-final at Roland Garros. "It was perfect today, I'm very satisfied," said reigning US Open champion Wawrinka after a 12th win in 14 meetings with Cilic.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsNine-time champion Rafael Nadal and defending champion Novak Djokovic, on 4 June, surged into the French Open quarterfinals for a record-equalling 11th time. But, apart from the feat, their progress into the tournament also promised a potential showdown between the two in the semi-finals of the men's singles category. With all eyes on their quarterfinal clashes, the fans were hoping to see the two icons get the better of their opponents before facing each other in what appeared to be their reunion at the Roland Garros. © Reuters While Nadal moved into his 10th French Open semi-final after overcoming his opponent Pablo Carreno Busta (thanks to his retirement due to abdominal problems), Djokovic, too, was expected to edge past Dominic Thiem in his quarterfinal clash. However, contrary to popular perception and to the utter dismay of tennis fans, the World No. 2 Serbian suffered a shock loss at the hands of his Austrian counterpart, quashing hopes of his reunion in the semi-finals with Nadal. © Reuters Djokovic was rolled over with remarkable ease by the 23-year-old World No. 7, who when they met in last year's semi-final had won just seven games. This time it was a 7-6, 6-3, 6-0 triumph for Thiem who will now square off against the Spaniard in the semi-finals. It was the first time that Djokovic has dropped a love set at a Grand Slam since the 2005 US Open. It was an unusual sight to see the great Serb battler, who had little answer to Thiem's kicks serve, so utterly flat at the end. © Reuters Djokovic's defeat also meant that Nadal will now overtake him as World No. 2, and he could possibly fall to No. 4 if Stan Wawrinka manages to reach the French Open final. Here's how Twitter reacted to the ouster of the defending champion: Federer in 2013. Nadal in 2015. Djokovic in 2017. The 3 giants of their era all fell into very dark places. The first 2 rebounded. — Matt Zemek (@mzemek) June 7, 2017 This is a crazy sport. 12 months ago Djokovic commanded all he surveyed. 12 months later he's slamless and in an arid mental wilderness. — Chris P (@scoobstennis) June 7, 2017 This is the first time since July 2011 that Djokovic will drop out of the world's top 2. Almost six years. Pretty impressive run. — Gaspar Ribeiro Lança (@gasparlanca) June 7, 2017 A year ago, Djokovic had won four straight Slams and made 23 of 24 Slam SFs. All four titles go undefended, only once reaching SFs. #rg17 — Ben Rothenberg (@BenRothenberg) June 7, 2017 Waking up to see that Djokovic lost...I was really looking forward to his match with Nadal. Oh well, it's probably for the better — Mo'nique (@Monikeeka) June 7, 2017
