AvTalk Episode 57: In an evacuation, leave everything

On this episode of AvTalk, we discuss Aeroflot 1492 in Moscow, Miami Air’s runway excursion in Jacksonville, new liveries, and Jason heads to Italy.

Next week we’ll have a special extended conversation with The Air Current editor-in-chief Jon Ostrower about the 737 MAX and the steady drip of news about how the airplane was developed and what Boeing is doing to get it back in the air.

Aeroflot flight 1492

On 5 May, Aeroflot flight SU1492 returned to Moscow not long after takeoff after suffering an unknown failure and a hard landing resulting in a large fire. Russian authorities report that 41 people have died. Photos and video of the evacuation of the aircraft have restarted our conversation about passenger behavior during an evacuation.

Miami Air runway overrun in Jacksonville

A Miami Air 737 operating a charter flight from Guantanamo Bay to Jacksonville NAS suffered a runway excursion on landing in Jacksonville. No injuries were reported. We discuss the circumstances surrounding the flight.

New (special) liveries

Jason visited Chicago to see United Airlines’ new livery unveiled and El Al and Brussels Airlines unveiled new special liveries of their own.

Venezuelan airspace

Last week the US FAA issued a Notam banning US operators from Venezuelan airspace below FL260 (26,000 feet), effectively barring US flights to Venezuela. We look to see who this actually affects.
