To avoid direct comparisons with the French Airbus A330 disaster:

The Spanish and two Russian incidents involved A320's.

The Chinese incident was an A340.

The Guam incident is fairly interesting ... it was an A330 with a cockpit fire.

All in all, nothing related to the recent disaster.

Bad run for airbus lately. I guess due to the recent downing of one the focus has shifted to how they are performing. No doubt similar patterns have happened to boeing aircraft before.

I think we need good ol' Kim Jong to test fire a missile or something so the media ain't getting the magnifying glass out on too many irregular airbus issues

Yeah .. strangely, I have always had a feeling that similar disasters come in batches ... never really tried to find statistics on that. Just another crazy thought rattling around in my head.

HAHHA... Nothing related? Except they are all Airbus aircraft and I bet motivated by the same thing...

lol.. I love how people attempt to act like there is NOTHING related when in reality there is SOMETHING related... sure they aren't the same exact aircraft, but as a former airdale I'll tell you that doesn't mean much. What means something is the equipment being used.

There's a huge chance that the equipment on all of those models are very similar and suspect...

UPDATE: Appears that the only thing in common was the maker of the aircraft in these being called down early. I still stand by my statement that there is commonality, but have since learned that the commonality I pointed out had nothing to do with these specific incidents...

I wa going to make a similar thread so star and flag for OP.

and BTW, has anybody remember the webbot (?) prediction about the planes falling down from the sky? I am almost sure that there was a thread on that but can not find it.

and for the Airbus - I remember that around a month or two ago there was a story about the "secret" investigation inside of the Airbus company (in German branch). they were tracking down the accounts of the management.

for what? probably to find out the suspicious transfers connected to:
a- terrorist organizations
b- competition
c- corruption

sabbotage?

I found the link on that investigation in Germany:
www.dw-world.de...

they say corruption. but would they confirm that they are afraid of possibly having on the planes some invalid equipment? I do not think so.

Good find:

From the article:



Germany's railway operator has been accused of secretly reading staff emails in an attempt to prevent employees from contacting the press and government officials.


To contact the press about what? Did I missed something from the article?

to break these down for sensationalist headlines:

the russian A320 was a bird strike

the spanish A320 was engine problems with its american engines (GE)

the jetstar A330 was windscreen heater fire - the heater is made by BF Goodrich (USA company)

the A340 was engine failure - with its USA made engines (GE engines)

and that AA flight 64 (mid air fire) was a boeing 767-300


want me to make a list of boeing aircraft emergency landing then as well

Thanks from me as well, Harlequin.

Saved me all of the trouble, and energy!!

(just to add): Folks, you can go here: www.NTSB.gov...

Enter any date range (pick a month, any month!) within the parameters, then just leave everything else alone, and 'Submit Query'. You will see that the incidence of aviation 'incidents' and accidents stays fairly stable, over time. It's only the big ones that make National or International news.
