      That red thing sticking out of nose of the aircraft - that's a Localizer antenna!

      20 feet lower and it would have been the hill and the outcome of this CRASH would have been much worse. Lucky no one was killed !

        • Airbus A400M crashes during test flight, killing four

          article from 'Australian Aviation Magazine', with a reference to FR24 flightpath of the doomed flight;

          Four Airbus employees have been killed and two more are in hospital in a serious condition after an A400M military airlifter crashed just outside Seville, Spain shortly into a production test flight.
          The A400M, which was due to be delivered to Turkey, crashed about 1.6km from Sevilla Airport on Saturday afternoon European time.
          "The aircraft, with the serial number MSN023, was making the first production flight and had departed from Sevilla Airport at 12:45 pm local time,” Airbus Group said in a statement confirming the accident.
          “An Airbus Group go-team of technical advisors is being dispatched to provide full assistance to the official committee in charge of the investigation.”
          News reports from Spain said the aircraft had reported a problem during the initial climb.
          All six crew flight test crew onboard were of Spanish nationality.

                  Most likely is wreckage from the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Reunion island is the closest land to the predicted crash site. Madagascar and the island of Mauritius could be next if there is anymore wreckage floating in that direction.

                      Osama bin Laden sister and stepmother feared dead in UK plane crash.

                      How ironic that Osama bin Laden sister and stepmother would be killed in a plane crash !

                        Incident: JAL B763 at Singapore on Jul 12th 2015, rejected takeoff from taxiway

                        By Simon Hradecky, created Wednesday, Jul 29th 2015 11:15Z, last updated Wednesday, Jul 29th 2015 11:15Z
                        A JAL Japan Airlines Boeing 767-300, registration JA606J performing flight JL-38 from Singapore (Singapore) to Tokyo Haneda (Japan) with 198 passengers and 10 crew, had taxied from the gate to depart runway 20C via taxiway WA (parallel to runway 20R), NC2 (North Cross 2) and was turning onto taxiway EP parallel to runway 20L at about 02:25L (18:25Z Jul 11th) when the crew received takeoff clearance for runway 20C. Tower controller noticed the aircraft was accelerating for takeoff on taxiway EP reaching about 25 knots over ground, instructed the crew to stop and taxi onto runway 20C. The aircraft departed runway 20C about 6 minutes later and reached Tokyo Haneda with a total delay of 20 minutes.

                        The airline reported the aircraft had departed the gate with a delay of 25 minutes. While taxiing to the runway the crew aligned with a taxiway parallel to the runway and commenced takeoff but rejected when an alert ATC instructed them to stop, the crew did not find it necessary however to report the occurrence to JAL, the airline learned about the occurrence on Jul 23rd 2015 when they were contacted by Singapore's AIB. Both 58 year old captain and 50 year old first officer were suspended.

                                2). The inter-locking pin with a red flag on the landing gear was MISSING - who didn't put in the pin or Who removed it before the aircraft is ready ?

                                Heads will roll and some people will be looking for new jobs - NOT in the aviation industry - but who knows - they may end up driving a Taxi ( from Air-Taxi repair to road-taxi ).,
