    A advertising blimp flying near the U.S. Open golf tournament in Wisconsin, United States crashed Thursday.
    Blimp was a 1-man aircraft.

    This particular airline is proving to be very incident-prone, especially on flights into Australia. There are questions already about why this flight turned back to Perth when there was a perfectly suitable but remote alternate available at Learmonth, that would have nearly been visible out of the right window when the engine failed. Of course there are commercial considerations in having a disabled aircraft positioned at a major airport but there is also the generally observed principle that a twin-engined passenger plane with one engine out is put on the ground ASAP and that means the nearest suitable strip.
