ALTON TOWERS TAKES FOUR SONIC SPINBALL RIDERS TO MEDICAL CENTRE FOLLOWING A 'SHUNT'



Julian Bray Media Newslines 01733 345581


It has just emerged that 4 people were taken to Alton Towers' medical centre as a precaution after a 'shunt' on one of the theme park's rides. The incident happened on the Sonic Spinball attraction which is located near the park's entry turnstiles, on Tuesday.


Theme park officials said two cars on the ride had "nudged each other at walking pace" but on-site medical staff had no concerns after assessing those on board.


A spokesman for Alton Towers Resort in Staffordshire said: "Two cars in the station area nudged each other at walking pace.


"The guests on the two cars walked off and we advised that they attend our medical centre as a precautionary measure. The ride reopened shortly afterwards."


The incident happened in the same week the park issued an apology after it took up to an hour to evacuate about eighty people on Wednesday when the site's monorail broke down, it was the hottest day of the year....


It is four weeks since a carriage on the Smiler roller coaster ride crashed into another empty car, seriously injuring five people.


Two of the injured have since undergone leg amputations.

Chicago Sun-Times Film buff ROGER ELBERTS KNEW MY SEX PISTOLS CLIENT MALCOLM McLAREN

As this blog also covers trains and travel,  and has a good USA following, I am including a strange tale from a good few years ago, concering Malcolm McLaren and the Sex Pistols and a film or films, they were involved with.


Its best to read the extract below from the late Roger Elberts film blog but unfortunately as Roger has passed on.  I'm not able add in the detail to complete his own recollection, of a very strange period of both our lives.
The section in bold is the part we need ,for the sake of film history, to clear up.


A brief note: Roger Ebert became film critic of the Chicago Sun-Times in 1967. He is the only film critic with a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame and was named honorary life member of the Directors' Guild of America. He won the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Screenwriters' Guild, and honorary degrees from the American Film Institute and the University of Colorado at Boulder...  Now read on:

"I need you out here," Russ Meyer told me on the phone in 1977. It was 6 a.m. He could not conceive that I might still be asleep. "Have you ever heard of the Sex Pistols?"
"No," I said.
"They're a rock band from England. They got a lot of publicity for saying 'fuck' on TV. Now they have some money and want me to direct their movie."

The captain of a TransAsia Airways plane mistakenly switched off its only working engine, just seconds before it crashed in February, killing 43 people.

The captain of a TransAsia Airways plane mistakenly switched off its only working engine, just seconds before it crashed in February, killing 43 people, according to Taiwan's Aviation Safety Council.


The ASC report showed that Captain Liao Jian-zong, who was at the controls, had  earlier failed simulator training in May 2014, in part because he had insufficient knowledge of how to deal with an engine flame-out on take-off.    "Wow, pulled back the wrong side throttle," Liao, 41, was heard to say on the recovered 'black box' voice recorder, seconds before the impact.

TOYOTA TOP PR HIRE RESIGNS FROM JAIL OVER JAPAN DRUG IMPORTATION ALLEGATIONS





Toyota's Hamp Quits Top PR Post from Jail

http://feeds.feedburner.com/BraysDuckhouseBlog
 
Julie Hamp, Toyota's new PR chief,  just a month in the job, has resigned following her arrest two weeks ago for allegedly bringing illegal drugs into Japan.


The car manufacturer released a statement saying it accepted Hamp's resignation "after considering the concerns and inconvenience that recent events have caused our stakeholders."


HEATHROW AIRPORT: STACKED THIRD RUNWAY WITHIN AIRPORT FOOTPRINT COULD BE THE ANSWER



Julian Bray Aviation Expert writes: Has anyone popped over to Paris  lately and wondered about the aircraft passing immediately over the traffic tunnel? Or how the Channel tunnel works underwater?  The Airport Commission spent three years and £20 million, the result a 400 page document. A document that no one really seems to be happy with... but help is at hand, and from an unlikely set of professionals.  


A chance conversation with a delightful and gifted crowd of FIFTY geeks tonight in Peterborough ( Digital People In Peterborough)  has unwittingly come up with a solution, that I am told is already technically possible and that is the concept of A STACKED DOUBLE DECKER RUNWAY.



Map of new runway
The third stacked Heathrow runway would run at a 45 degree angle
from bottom left to top right on the existing pink footprint.
There would be no need to acquire the land marked green
just a couple of small plots
 to accommodate the gradient taxiways  WWW.AVIATIONCOMMENT.COM





No we've not been on the happy juice, and admittedly fine detail has to be worked on. But this is how it works. The extra runway is contained within the existing airport footprint, and is for the first time made possible by a recent change pioneered by NATS in plotting landing and take off systems, where rigid flight paths are being consigned to history and a spatial funnel approach is being introduced. Knowing how NATS works, it would not be unreasonable to  believe that the Airport Commission still knows little or nothing about it. ....
