Hey Guys, I received the dreaded "LiveATC Service Monitor Problem" e-mail tonight while I was away from home. Upon returning, I found my entire  home network competely dead. I soon discovered that my main power supply that feeds by distribution box which powers just about every device on my network crapped out due to a failed fan bearing. I do have the power supply temporarily replaced with a slightly lower rated supply, however I would not be surpised if the temporary power supply is unable to meet demand and reaches a thermal shutdown.  I do have a new power supply for the network, but I will be unable to completely rewire until at least Thursday at which time the feed will go down for up to a few hours.  Sorry guys, apparently my nerd skills are weak at the moment.

Does anyone have the audio from AA2343 on 3/23?  It made an emergency landing in DFW after hitting several birds.

Looking at Flightaware data..plane was in a rapid descent with airspeed decreasing indicating a controlled descent perhaps with speed brakes deployed.  In the last few second they got real low and slow with airspeed less than 150 kts with direction course varying from Northeast to southeast.  Must have been disoriented.. The pilot was reported to have squawked 7700 prior to descent.  Equipment failure seems the most likely then IMC disorientation?

Thoughts and prayers to the passengers, crew, families, and the rescuers going into this area of remarkable terrain...

... cry...

Just some data on the aircraft:

The aircraft is D-AIPX (CN 147), an A320-211 operated by Germanwings. She is pictured below, this image taken in Sept of 2014.
She was built in 1990, and delivered new to Lufthansa on 02/05/1991. She spent her life operating for Lufthansa and Germanwings.
(They seemed to share the airframe. Germanwings is the low cost branch of Lufthansa.)

On 07/10/2003, she was transferred to Germanwings.
On 07/22/2004, she was transferred back to Lufthansa.
And finally, on 01/31/2014, she was transferred back to Germanwings, the entire time maintaining the same German registration.  

Preliminary AvHerald Article:


Lots of news clips from CNN, as per usual wit the media, take them with a grain of salt:

According to the "DGAC", It looks like ATC did send the mayday call, not the pilots.

14 h 40. L'équipage de Germanwings n'a pas émis d'appel de détresse

L'équipage de la compagnie Germanwings n'a pas émis d'appel de détresse, a indiqué la Direction générale de l'aviation civile. « L'équipage n'a pas émis de 'mayday'. C'est le contrôle aérien qui a décidé de déclarer l'avion en détresse car il n'avait plus aucun contact avec l'équipage et l'avion », a-t-elle expliqué.
