Air Berlin pilots suspended after saying 'dignified goodbye' with fly-by stunt at Dsseldorf Airport
News ImageThe pilots of anAirBerlinflight that performed a fly-past during the insolvent carrier's last long-haul flight to its hub in Dsseldorf have been suspended, theairline 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," anAirBerlinspokesman said. TheAirBerlinpilot 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," theAirBerlinpilot 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." TheAirBerlinspokesman said the videos raised questions that had to be answered as part of the investigation. AirBerlinfiled for insolvency on August 15 and Lufthansa has signed a deal to buy large parts of its operations. Theairline will fly its final short-haul flights under theAirBerlinbrand at the end of this month.

China's Jiang rises from the 'dead' for Communist meeting
News ImageRumoured to have died a few months ago, 91-year-old former Chinese president Jiang Zemin roused social media users Wednesday by taking a prominent place at the ruling Communist Party's leadership Congress. Proving that reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated, the former leader sat next to President Xi Jinping and stood for the national anthem as the twice-a-decade congress opened on national television in Beijing's vast Great Hall of the People. Many Chinese internet users gushed over the elderly "Frog" -- an affectionate nickname inspired by Jiang's wide grin and prominent bespectacled eyes -- marvelling over the apparently still hale nonagenarian in postings sprinkled with frog emojis.

Las Vegas gunman's estate could offer rare redress for victims
News ImageBy Tina Bellon NEW YORK (Reuters) - Victims of mass shootings in the United States often win little or no damages from perpetrators but the Las Vegas massacre may be different because the shooter is thought to have been a wealthy man, lawyers said. While there are often few assets to collect from the young men who typically carry out these killings, Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, 64, is thought to have had multi-million-dollar investments in buildings across Texas and California. "It definitely depends on the assets in the estate whether you pursue that claim," said Theida Salazar, a Los Angeles attorney who represented one of the victim's families in the 2015 shooting in San Bernadino, California.

Top Syrian general killed by Isil landmine near Deir Ezzor
News ImageA senior Syrian commander and one of President Bashar al-Assads most trusted generals has been killed during an operation against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil). Brig Gen Issam Zahreddine, a field commander in the elite Republican Guard, died after a convoy he was travelling in hit a landmine on Wednesday morning as they drove throughHawija Saqr near Deir Ezzor province. Zahreddine, who was in his late 50s and instantly recognisable by his full grey beard, had been leading 7,000 troops in the battle to retake the eastern city of Deir Ezzor from the jihadists. He also led government offensives against armed opposition in the central Homs province and near the capital, Damascus, in the earlier days of the conflict. IssamZahreddine addresses his troops in Deir Ezzor His death will be a major blow to the regime, which has lost huge numbers of high-ranking soldiers and generals over the course of the six-year war. He was a controversial figure who was pictured last year posing next to hanging corpses which appeared to have been tortured before being cut into pieces. In another, he is seen walking beside a line of bodies so long he and some of his troops stopped before they even reached the last one. He is named in a lawsuit filed by the family of the late veteran war correspondent Marie Colvin, who was killed in an artillery attack in Baba Amr district of Homs. Zahreddine had been in charge of an operation to root out rebels in the central city at the time in February 2012. The Colvin family alleges that Zahreddine, after learning of the Sunday Times journalists whereabouts, ordered a targeted artillery attack on the makeshift opposition media centre where she had been staying. The regime has denied the attack on the American was deliberate. And last month the major gave an interview warning Syrian refugees not to return to the country, saying the army would never forgive or forget. "If you know what is good for you, none of you return, he said in a Syrian state TV interview. The commander later apologised and said his comment was misinterpreted, and he was only referring to Isil and rebel fighters who had killed Syrian troops. He was remembered online on Wednesday by government supporters as a hero who gave his life for his country, but by opposition backers as a war criminal. Several top Syrian, Russian and Iranian commanders have been killed in recent months in fighting around Deir Ezzor. The province is the last remaining stronghold of Islamic State, which has put up a tough fight to retain control of the strategic oil-rich region. With the defeat of Isil in its former capital, Raqqa, this week, the battle against the group will now centre on Deir Ezzor where it has now largely been confined and under attack from both Syrian troops and US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.
