Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 missing and apparently down over Vietnam

A Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-2H6-ER, tail number 9M-MRO, operating as Flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing, China on Saturday, March 8, 2014 is missing and has apparently crashed while near Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam or over the South China Sea, as reported on this date by the National Post, AsiaOne, The Sydney Morning Herald, and other media sources.

Air traffic controllers in both Vietnam and Malaysia lost radio contact and radar tracking of the aircraft at 2:40 a.m. local time, just over two hours after the plane had taken off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) at 12:35 a.m. on a scheduled 6-hour non-stop night flight to Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK), a distance of 2,300 air miles or 3,700 kilometers.

There were conflicting reports of emergency locator signals coming from a potential crash area. These initial reports have been denied. No distress message from the flight crew was sent before the plane vanished.

The wide body twin-engine jet was carrying 227 passengers, including 2 infants, and 12 crew members. Two of the passengers were Canadian citizens and 3 were from the United States. In total, they represented 14 nations, including 7 from Australia, 2 from New Zealand, 152 from China, 38 Malaysians, and 12 from Indonesia.

Malaysia Airlines Group CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya issued the following statement, saying in part, “We deeply regret that we have lost all contacts with flight MH370. Malaysia Airlines is currently working with the authorities who have activated their Search and Rescue team to locate the aircraft. Our team is currently calling the next-of-kin of passengers and crew. Focus of the airline is to work with the emergency responders and authorities and mobilize its full support. Our thoughts and prayers are with all affected passengers and crew and their family members.”

The captain of the plane was 53-years-old and had 18,365 flying hours and more than 33-years of experience with Malaysia Airlines.

The same plane, 9M-MRO, then operating as flight MH389, was involved in a runway accident on Aug. 9, 2012, when it damaged the tail of a China Eastern Airlines plane at Shanghai Pudong Airport (PVG) while taxiing. In that incident, the tip of the wing of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 broke off. Both aircraft were grounded as a result of that incident.

The Boeing 777 was first introduced on June 7, 1995 with United Airlines as the launch carrier. A total of 1,544 of all variants of the aircraft have been produced to date, including 721 of the 777-300ER, the most common model, compared to 422 of the 777-200ER and 88 for the 777-200.

Depending on seating configuration, the aircraft can carry between 282 and 440 passengers. It has a cruising speed of 560 miles an hour, a maximum speed of 590 mph, and costs approximately $260 million per aircraft. The model has been involved in 8 aviation incidents and accidents, including 4 hull losses. The first happened on Jan. 17, 2008, when British Airways Flight 38, a 777-200ER with Rolls-Royce Trent 895 engines flying from Beijing to London, crash-landed approximately 1,000 feet short of Heathrow Airport’s runway 27L and slid onto the runway’s threshold, resulting in 47 injuries but no fatalities.

Prior to this most recent Malaysia Airlines incident, on July 6, 2013, Asiana Airlines Flight 214, a 777-200ER registered as HL7742, crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) after touching down short of the runway. Passengers and crew evacuated before fire destroyed the aircraft. The crash resulted in the death of two of the 307 people on board. A third person died after being struck by an airport fire truck responding to the crash.

Malaysia Airlines was established on May 1, 1947, 66 years ago. Assuming the worst case scenario for Flight MH370, there are now three accidents involving passenger fatalities on Malaysia Airlines, with a total of 373 fatalities. Prior to this latest incident, on Dec. 4, 1977 Malaysia Airlines Flight 653, a Boeing 737-200 (9M-MBD) was hijacked and crashed in Tanjung Kupang, Johor, Malaysia killing all 100 people aboard. On Sep. 15, 1995 Malaysia Airlines Flight 2133, a Fokker 50 (9M-MGH) crashed during approach in Tawau Airport (TWU), Sabah, on the island of Borneo, due to pilot error. A total of 34 people were killed.

The carrier, based in Kuala Lumpur, has 105 aircraft in service including 15 Boeing 777-200ER, each configured to carry 282 passengers, 35 in business class and 247 in coach. It recently joined the Oneworld airline alliance, whose members include Air Berlin, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, LAN Airlines,Qantas, Qatar Airways, Royal Jordanian, and S7 Airlines, plus some 30 affiliated airlines. It is well regarded in the aviation industry for safety and in-flight service.

Auto Insurance for Teenagers – Ten Tips to Reduce the Cost

Let’s face it – auto insurance for teenagers and drivers under 25 is going to be more expensive than it is for older drivers. Insurance is all about risk, and insurance companies know that teenagers and students are a high risk group. Because they are inexperienced and sometimes careless, they tend to have more accidents and make more claims. You have to pay for the mistakes of others in your peer group! Typical prices are 2.5 to 3.5 times the base rate depending upon where you live and whether you are male or female. The average cost of auto insurance for teens could be around $290 per month for a 16 year old female, and more for a male.

But, there is good news – here are some things that you can do to make sure you do not pay too much.

  • About the car

Choose you car wisely – flashy cars are going to be much more expensive to insure and are also more likely to get stolen.

Go for older cars with safety and security features because they are cheaper to insure.

  • About You

See if you can be added to your parents policy as a named driver – their premium will go up, but maybe not as much as if you get your own policy

Ask for a discount if you are a good student – some companies give discounts if you are getting B grades or better.

Take an approved drivers education course – it may cost to do it but you could get the money back in reduced insurance costs by up to 15%, and you also benefit from being a safer driver.

Keep out of trouble on the road – no speeding, traffic violations, accidents or DUIs (Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs). A good record will reduce your bill.

  • About the policy

Consider increasing your deductible amount if you can afford it – this is the amount you have to pay if you make a claim. If you can afford to increase it to say $1000 that can dramatically reduce your premium.

Choose a comfortable level of protection against collision damage and theft so you can stay on the road if the worst happens. You can reduce your premium by not including them in your policy.

As a last resort, you could take out only the legal minimum basic liability protection – but be aware that you and your vehicle would not be covered if you have an accident. Also, there will be a limit on the amount the insurance company will pay out if you cause an accident, so this could be very expensive in the long run.

Get on-line quotes from at least five companies in your state – shopping around will ensure the best value, but make sure you compare like for like and not just the headline rates.

After buying your car, the next most expensive item is the auto insurance. For teens, this may be almost as much as the vehicle itself, so it pays to choose your policy wisely.

2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and Sonata receive “BEST BET” awards

Hyundai continues to rack up accolades. The latest honors were announced on March 6: the Santa Fe Sport and Sonata received “BEST BET” awards for safety and performance in the 34th edition of The Car Book, America’s original consumer car buying guide.

Hyundai Motor America notes that this is the fourth consecutive year that the Sonata has received this honor. “Hyundai continues to exceed customer expectations in terms of build quality and standard features,” noted Jack Gillis, author of The Car Book. He added, “By offering vehicles that respond to the safety and performance needs of today’s consumers, Hyundai continues to make a significant contribution to improving the market choices for the American car buyer.”

Hyundai notes that The Car Book is now in its 34th consecutive year of offering buying tips to consumers. Its “BEST BETS” distinctions are awarded annually to new vehicles that cater to the needs of American consumers, and in turn, make a significant contribution to the American automotive market. Ratings are given in nine categories: crash tests, safety features, rollover, preventative maintenance, repair costs, warranty, fuel economy, customer complaints, and insurance costs.

“While Hyundai’s vehicles can be tailored to suit a customer’s lifestyle, there are two aspects that should never be overlooked: safety and standard features,” noted Scott Margason, Director of Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. He added, “Hyundai is committed to catering to the changing needs of our customers, and receiving the ‘BEST BETS’ accolade acknowledges our ability to deliver high quality vehicles across our entire lineup.”

The mid-sized 2014 Sonata is popular for a number of reasons. Its 190 HP four-banger delivers 24 city and 35 highway EPA mileage has plenty of oomph. If you crave more, a turbo version is available. The vehicle contains an adequate amount of techno-features, including Blue Link and seven-inch Infotainment System and its Fluidic Sculpture design is eye candy.

The 2014 Santa Fe Sport can be had with the same two engine options as the Sonata. Because it pushes more air, it suffers a small mileage hit. For those that want to leave the beaten path, all wheel drive is available. It also contains similar techno-features as the Sonata.

Enhance Engine Life With Oil Filters

Due diligence on the quality and capacity of the engine component is perhaps one parameter for selecting your dream car but, maintenance is yet another story.

Understanding the role of an oil filter is essential as it is integral to internal-combustion engines in motor vehicles, earth moving machinery, naval vessels, light aircraft models and marine applications. Oil filtration of engines is the first bypass mechanism to remove pollutants from engine oil in your vehicles.

It is well known that oil or lubricants is essential in keeping engine parts moving and preventing damage caused due to trapped contaminants.

The role of engine oil thus directly impacts on engine emission controls and other stipulated tolerances. Quality engine oil in sync with in-built efficient filtration technology is therefore essential in facilitating emission controls.

Engine oils play a dual role in removing heat by maintaining uniform circulation within the engine and in doing so helps to flush out pollutants from the engine.

It is more important to change engine oil regularly for older engines. While new engine designs demand finer filtration mode as compared to older models, there is a need to change these filters regularly after every 3000 miles with every oil change.

Such replacement filtration tools are also designed to purify lubricating oil or hydraulic oil and find applications in a number of hydraulic mechanics.

A number of distributors offer choice of oil filters online, so as to choose from a range of
air, oil and cabin cleaning technologies along with their respective service kits.

Know Your Oil Filters

Did you know that the oil supplied to any vehicle is cleaned at least four or five times per minute so as to allow clean oil to pass through the engine?

The mechanism is thus based on a continuous multi-pass system whereby engine oil is allowed to pass through a filter to remove dirt and impurities in order to de-clog the engine.

Overall, the efficiency of oil purification helps to prevent damage to the engine’s bearings and crankshaft. Thus, cleaning of dirty car oil is critical for increased efficiency, which gets translated into longevity of the engine by reducing its excessive wear and tear.

Good oil screening technique can ascertain improved flow so as to minimize oil starvation and thereby protect the engine. Mechanical, cartridge and spin-on, sedimentation, centrifugal and high efficiency (HE) filters are the popular for washing off oil based-contaminants.

These find applications in engines based on the levels of clean oil required and this impact the price affordability for such clean engine component. The cost gradually increases with higher levels of cleanliness in engines.

Much Needed Air Cleaning

Engines running on internal fuel combustion obviously need air to function. Without air or oxygen, it is impossible for fuels such as diesel and gasoline to burn and provide an explosive force that powers an engine.

This requires appropriate amount of clean air to pass through the engine gullets that often trap particulate matter damaging engine life. To the rescue are air cleaners that enable clean air to enter into the engine’s combustion chambers and reduces debris from contaminated air from damaging engine components.

  • Third Party Insurance

While going in for car insurance, one should never forget that third-party cover is mandatory. So you can buy third- party cover along with car insurance policy to avail comprehensive protection towards damages against other’s vehicle. Third-party cover is very useful. Very often we hear or read that the court has offered the third-party with compensation of lakhs and in some cases even tens of lakhs of rupees in major injuries or accidental deaths. It is beyond the capacity of any ordinary man to pay such an exorbitant compensation. So it is here that the third-party insurance cover comes to your rescue whereby the insurer takes sufficient care of your liability to settlement of claims for third-party.

  • Car Insurance Premium

One does not have to unnecessarily worry for payment of insurance premium. A lot of options are available to suit different pockets. As much as 50-60% premium discount is available with some providers. Then some providers offer up to 50% no-claim bonus if you have not preferred any claim in the previous year and the incentive continues likewise for all the coming years.

But one thing has to be strictly borne in mind that insurance premium has to be paid in time every year lest you are deprived of all the benefits of the insurance cover, including third-party cover.
