Tue, 17 Oct 2017 12:55:11 -0400

The death toll from a US drone attack on a compound used by the Taliban-allied Haqqani network has risen to 26, officials said Tuesday, less than a week after a US-Canadian family held captive by the militants was rescued.

Air Berlin pilots suspended after saying 'dignified goodbye' with fly-by stunt at Düsseldorf Airport

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 19:46:01 -0400

The pilots of an Air Berlin flight that performed a fly-past during the insolvent carrier's last long-haul flight to its hub in Düsseldorf have been suspended, the airline said on Wednesday. When coming into land from Miami on Monday morning, the A330 jet flew low across the runway, then pulled up and banked sharply to the left before landing on its second approach. Pilots are trained in such "go-around" procedures for aborted landings, but the manoeuvre was unusual and the German aviation authorities are investigating. "In aviation, safety always comes first. We are taking the incident very seriously," an Air Berlin spokesman said. The Air Berlin pilot had requested permission from the tower to make a left turn should a go-around be necessary. "We wanted to make a mark, a dignified and emotional goodbye," the Air Berlin pilot was quoted as saying by German broadcaster ZDF. His identity was not given. Another pilot for a different carrier told Reuters that a go-around should be performed only for operational or safety reasons. "Electing to do one if it is known not to be required adds an unnecessary risk," he said. Several videos of the incident can be viewed online. In one, control tower staff can be heard exclaiming as the plane flies past, with one person saying: "We are all in awe." The Air Berlin spokesman said the videos raised questions that had to be answered as part of the investigation. Air Berlin filed for insolvency on August 15 and Lufthansa has signed a deal to buy large parts of its operations. The airline will fly its final short-haul flights under the Air Berlin brand at the end of this month.

Airbus, Bombardier deal hits Boeing with double whammy

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 09:49:45 -0400

Airbus and Bombardier are inflicting double damage on Boeing with a deal that fills a gap in the Europeans' aircraft range and gives Bombardier a fighting chance to avoid punishing US tariffs, analysts say. In the middle of the European night, Airbus issued a surprise announcement that it would take a majority stake in Bombardier's marquee C-Series airliner programme, aiming for significant production savings on the C-Series aircraft and making use of Airbus's international reach for sales. The agreement, which Airbus chief Tom Enders called "a win-win deal for everyone", gives the European company a stake in Bombardiers' mid-range programme without the need to immediately inject cash -- allowing it to keep its war chest intact for future battles with arch-rival Boeing.

American woman becomes princess after meeting a real prince in a nightclub

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:57:23 -0400

Most of us can but dream of rocking up to the club and casually meeting a member of a royal family. But, that's what happened to Ariana Austin on the dance floor of Washington D.C. nightclub Pearl back in December 2005 when she met Joel Makonnen, a.k.a. Prince Yoel.  The story didn't end there for Austin and Makonnen. Twelve years on from their nightclub meet-cute, the couple tied the knot, and Austin became a princess. SEE ALSO: Prince George's favourite film proves once and for all he just can't wait to be king Per the New York Times, Prince Yoel is the great-grandson of Haile Selassie, the last emperor of Ethiopia, part of the Solomonic dynasty. Austin also happens to be of noble blood: she's the granddaughter of the lord mayor of Georgetown, Guyana. A post shared by Ariana Austin Makonnen (@chezariana) on Sep 15, 2017 at 7:14am PDT Enough about royalty, we want to know what went down in that nightclub on that fateful night in 2005. That night, Makonnen strolled over to Austin and her friend and said: "You guys look like an ad for Bombay Sapphire," according to the NYT. It appears Makonnen's regal background didn't help him out in the chat-up line department. Apparently, it took Makonnen just five more minutes to tell Austin: "You're going to be my girlfriend." Well, he certainly didn't waste any time.  Official pics are here! All credit to the talented @dotunayodeji.

Austin works at the Executives' Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, and Makonnen works at Otsuka America Pharmaceutical.  Congrats to the happy (royal) couple!

If you happen to be Kit Harington, what's the most embarrassing outfit you could wear to a Halloween party? Well, there are probably a whole bunch of possibilities, but there's one costume idea in particular that blows all the others out of the water ?? and it's something Harington actually has dressed up as. SEE ALSO: Kit Harington played an incredibly cruel April Fools' prank on Rose Leslie Harington shared all the glorious details in a recent interview with Heat magazine, BuzzFeed reports. According to everyone's favourite White Walker-slayer, the costume was for a "bad taste" themed party ?? and the idea for it came from Harington's fiancée and former Game of Thrones co-star, Rose Leslie. "She pulled out a Jon Snow costume, and Rose just whispered in my ear, ??I won't love you if you don't wear it... You should do it,'" said Harington. That's right: a Jon Snow costume. And just to make things that little bit more perfect, the costume was apparently one of those all-in-one jobs you get from a Halloween shop. ??It was really embarrassing," Harington continued. "The people bringing around canapés were looking at me, thinking: 'You're sad, man! You've come to a party dressed as your character.'" Tragically we don't have an image of the costume itself, but we imagine it looked something like this: Image: halloweencostumesWell played, Leslie. After seeing footage of the April Fools' prank Harington pulled on his partner earlier this year, he almost certainly deserved it. WATCH: Kit Harington surprised his fiancé with a severed head

A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. ??I??m not worried about it,? he wrote. ??If your next post gets 1,000 shares I??ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that??s a promise. ??And I??ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.? In a follow-up post, the department said he ??may or may not be a man of his word,? adding, ??it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.? The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. ??Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,? the department said. ??He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.? Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?
