A few articles in the world of transport I've seen recently that are somewhat note worthy.
A large bridge carrying a motorway (highway) has collapsed in Genoa, Italy, killing at least 37 people at the current count. The bridge was around 295ft in the air, the collapsed section fell onto mostly railway tracks, rather than buildings, however at least several vehicles careered off the motorway and onto the ground below. The exact cause is unknown, but it is thought to be brought on a large storm, with eyewitnesses saying a large burst of lightning hit the bridge before its collapse.BBC News
Next up, an empty passenger plane was stolen by an airport member of staff from Seattle-Tacoma Airport. Note that the story of this varies hugely from article to article, so i'll go with the one that I trust the most, the BBC.
The member of staff who worked for the company of the plane he stole, Horizen Air, later crashed the plane after about 90 minuetes on a sparsely populated island, which killed him. Transcripts of his communication with ATC are erratic, and go from noting his surprise at what he has achieved, mentioning his many hours of video games were helping him control the game, to later apologising to his loved ones for what he has done. The thief had full credentials for the airport, meaning he didn't violate any security, as he legitimately had access to the plane, though obviously, not permission to fly it. Shortly after taking flight, NORAD fighter jets were scrambled and closely followed the plane until its eventual crash, which they played no direct part in.BBC News
Will be a few questions about airport security, and if more needs to be done to prevent people who legitimately have access to planes from going awry with them.
