THIS is the terrifying moment a passenger plane nearly came to grief as it came into land at Tokyo airport as Typhoon Cimarron continued its path of destruction. The footage shows The Dreamliner airplane making its descendent at Tokyo’s Narita airport with its landing gear down when its nose suddenly dips. Disaster was averted though thanks to the pilot’s skill in pulling the plane back into position and it landed safely. The sheer force of the typhoon’s winds made the plane wobble during the height of the country’s storm season. Japan’s typhoon season stretches from July to October but is at a peak in August and September. Around 25 typhoons hit the country every year, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. The agency said at the weekend the current typhoon was heading north with average wind speeds of 56mph with gusts reaching 78mph.

He said maintenance crews were preparing for an upcoming miter gate replacement and, thus, were on-site when the structural problems were discovered. “We were very fortunate that they discovered this when the maintenance crews were already here,” he said. “Luck was on our side. If they hadn’t been here, it could’ve been a weeklong shutdown.” Still, it served as a stark reminder of the ripple effect that even a brief closure can have on river traffic. It also focused attention on the aging lock-and-dam system – and the … [Read more...] about Iowa river traffic relies on aging lock and dam system

Her Laser Radial was first in the noon race and first in the afternoon, first on the water and on handicap, first over the start lines (near as can be in the second race) and first to finish each lap raced.
