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.

'He's getting younger!' Former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin sets social media abuzz during congress
News ImageRumoured to have died a few months ago, 91-year-old former Chinese president Jiang Zemin roused social media users on Wednesday by taking a prominent place at the ruling Communist Partys leadership Congress. Proving that reports of his death 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 with a speech by Xi in Beijings vast Great Hall of the People. Many Chinese internet users gushed over the elderly "Frog", an affectionate nickname inspired by Jiangs wide grin and prominent bespectacled eyes, marvelling over the apparently still hale nonagenarian in postings sprinkled with frog emojis. "I want to ask about his secret for longevity," said one posting on Chinas Twitter-like social network Weibo. "How many organs must he have had replaced to be standing in the middle of the stage?" asked another. Jiang Zemin checked his watch 10 times in Xi speech before I lost count 00:45, 01:25, 01.35, 01:40, 01:43, 01:50, 01:55, 01:59, 02:10, 02:19 Neil Connor (@neilaconnor) October 18, 2017 Looking for Jiang Zemin Theory. Nathan Attrill (@nathanattrill) October 18, 2017 Jiang, the former party leader and Chinese president for a decade from 1993, is occasionally the subject of rumours of his demise. The most recent came in May amid a flurry of online speculation that he had died of a stroke in Shanghai, the commercial hub that Jiang formerly governed as mayor and party chief. Past presidents are typically on hand for the congress, during which the top leadership and party policies for the next five years are set in stone, and Jiangs immediate successor Hu Jintao, 74, was on Xis right hand. Jiang, a former factory engineer, came to power in the traumatic aftermath of the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown and led China through an era of stunning economic transformation. Attendees refill delegate's cups as Jiang Zemin, China's former president, bottom center, sits with eyes closed Credit: Bloomberg Jiangs legacy remains mixed, as his term set the blueprint for rapid economic growth that gave rise to ills such as rampant environmental degradation and a widening wealth gap, which todays leaders are grappling with. But with his big smile, grasp of several languages, and sometimes clownish behaviour including making jokes in English, Jiang is fondly remembered as a relatively colorful figure compared to his stiff successors Hu and Xi. A music lover who played the piano, Jiang was known for bursting into song on foreign trips, including a memorable rendition of Elvis Presleys "Love Me Tender" during a state visit to the Philippines. "Holy (expletive)! He is getting younger than ever," said one Weibo posting. Jiangs presence was largely ignored by state media, however. Official mention of past leaders has become increasingly rare under Xi, who took power in 2012 and moved swiftly to clamp down on dissent as party mouthpieces push a cult of personality around him.
