RE: Two Pilots Die In Mid-air Crash At Polish Air Show

Terrible news, but just out of curiosity, does anyone the type of aircraft those pilots were flying? Unfortunately, that's what makes airshows so exhilarating and fascinating -- the danger and the possibility of crashes. These pilots are performing intense manevours, often very close to the ground w...

RE: Austrian Airlines Emergency Landing At ORD

Here's a brief article from the Tribune. Looks like it was an engine problem after all? But does anyone know where they could've gone to dump fuel? There's no way they did it in the area surrounding O'hare -- maybe over lake Michigan? <a href="http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/illinois/chi-ap...

What time was this around? Did it delay other flights as well? I noticed the EI 330 and Virgin A346 yesterday landing on 4R yesterday around 4:15 to 4:30, which I thought was a later than usual arrival -- could this have been why?
