During a flight between Beijing in China and Melbourne in Australia exploded a woman's headphones, about two hours after that flight, the lift from the airport in Beijing reported by many media outlets.the Woman must have been sleeping when the explosion took place, said after the accident:"As I went to turn around I felt the burning on my face.I just grabbed my face which caused the headphones to go around my neck.I continued to feel the burning so I grabbed them off and threw them on the floor.They were sparking bar and had small amounts of fire."
If you've ever sat in the window seat on a flight, you've probably noticed the tiny hole at the bottom of the window.We asked the FAA why it's there, and they assured us it's totally safe.Here's why there are tiny holes in airplane windows.Click here to receive a FREE download of The Top 5 Disruptive Trends Shaping Transportation and Logistics from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service.

Here s a British Airways Airbus A380 attempting to land at Vancouver airport.You can see the world s largest passenger airplane make its final approach and come so, so close to the ground — but then decide to abort and make a go-around instead.It s mightily impressive to see such a big plane make a manoeuvre like this.Adobe Flash Player or an HTML5 supported browser is required for video playback.Get the latest Flash PlayerLearn more about upgrading to an HTML5 browser
An EgyptAir Airbus A320 with 66 people on board has disappeared from radar above Egyptian airspace, somewhere above the eastern Mediterranean.The airline says that Flight MS804 left Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris on Wednesday at 23:09 local time and was scheduled to arrive in Cairo at around 03:00 local time.In March of this year, Seifedeen Mustafa used a fake bomb to hijack an EgyptAir flight.It s not yet clear what has happened to the airplane.However, AFP s Jean-Marc Mojon cites a Greek aviation source who says that the airplane crashed 130 nautical miles off the Greek island of Karpathos.We ll update this post throughout the morning as more details emerge.

Following a full day of searches, military teams have announced that they have found debris, bodies and passenger belongings from the missing flight MS804 that crashed into the sea yesterday.Search teams are now said to be sweeping the sea in order to locate the airplane s black box.The aircraft crashed into the sea early Thursday.Flight MS804 left Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris on Wednesday at 23:09 local time and was scheduled to arrive in Cairo at around 03:00 local time.Radar contact was lost with the airplane at 2:30 Cairo time, when it was flying at 37,000ft.Aboard the airplane were 56 passengers, seven crew members and three security personnel.
This gantry system will support robotic heads that will build the carbon fiber wings.Images: AP Boeing is busy developing its next ultra-efficient commercial jetliner, the 777x, and one of its biggest features—quite literally—are its wings.The airplane will feature longer wings than most airplanes to improve its aerodynamics: The drag created at the wing tips is reduced by increasing the aspect ratio between length and depth of the wing, allowing it to be more efficient.Only problem is that the wings will need to be so big—114 feet long and 23 feet wide—that they will in fact have to fold so that they can squeeze through to airport gates.Perhaps unsurprisingly, the new 1 million square foot center is very close to where the entire airplane will ultimately be assembled.Huge curtains are used to stop dust from moving between sections of the facility.
Instagram is pretty neat, and it s a great way for people to show the artistic, specially-curated side of their lives.And by exactly the same, I of course mean Instagram-worthy!The obviously fake workspaceThe first step to being productive: Take a photo of your workspace and post it Instagram.But your desk is a cluttered mess, so you should instead set up a fake workspace in a café complete with a pretty latte and take a picture of that.I don t fault you for wanting to take a picture of that.But make sure people know exactly where you werewhen you snapped this photo by including the airplane wing in your composition!

Image: APWorksThe word Airbus probably brings to mind an image of a hefty airplane that flies you around the world.But this time around, Airbus has made a decidedly different kind of vehicle: a 3D printed motorcycle that looks like something straight out of Alien.Called Light Rider—man, David Hasselhoff is probably pissed—the vehicle was created by Airbus subsidiary APWorks.It weighs in at just 77 pounds and is powered by a six kilowatt electric engine that helps it go from zero to 50 miles per hour in a few seconds.And if it looks a little web-like, that s intentional:The frame itself was made using a selective 3D laser printing system that melted minuscule aluminum alloy particles together.The end product was a series of parts made up of a lot of extremely thin—as in 60 microns thin—layers.

We're seeing 3D-printed versions of just about everything these days, from shoes and robots to even working cars, and now it's the electric motorcycle's turn.APWorks, a subsidiary of airplane-maker Airbus, has produced what it says is the world's first 3D-printed motorcycle, complete with a total weight of just 35 kg 77 pounds .This all helps to make the bike 30% lighter than the typical e-motorcycle.The company had an intentional design goal of using bionic structures and natural growth patterns when programming its algorithms.Parts of the frame are also hollow, allowing cables and pipes to be run through them, another aspect that contributes to the weight reduction.The material was developed for use in additive layer manufacturing, bringing those benefits to the metallic 3D printing process.
Not until 1921 demonstrated that seriously, on the initiative of the party altitude successor Fyodor Sergeyev, who was close to Stalin. But his primitive speed trains became an inspiration for others. When it was built up year after it was a much more mature and elegant railway than Abakovskijs that took shape. It was driven by a push two-bladed propeller and an airplane engine from BMW. It took until 1954 before the record was broken by another rail vehicle. Subscribe to this.

AP -- A solar-powered airplane that landed in Oklahoma last week is headed to Ohio on the latest leg of its around-the-world journey.It departed from northern California in the early hours of May 2 and landed at the airport southwest of Phoenix 16 hours later.Last month, it flew from Hawaii to California.The crew was forced to stay in Oahu, Hawaii, for nine months after the plane's battery system sustained heat damage on its trip from Japan.Project officials say the layovers give the two Swiss pilots — Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg — a chance to swap places and engage with local communities along the way so they can explain the project, which is estimated to cost more than $100 million.

Within its source code for its MultiWindow SDK 1.3.1, it reads "This version has been released with Android N 7.0 compatibility."Android N VRWe've tested out a bunch of existing Android N features below, but there's also exciting new tools coming to the update, specifically Android VR.Sure, Google stock Android software has had switches for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplane mode and so forth, but it required pulling the notifications bar down a second time to reveal the quick settings menu.Secondly, Google's added Quick Switch to Android N. This lets you jump back to the previous application with a double tap of the recent multi-tasking button in the navigation bar.Let's not forget Google's dabble with the number four with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4.1/2/3 Jelly Bean and 4.4 KitKat.Battery improvementsAndroid 6.0 Marshmallow had a big focus on improving the battery life of your phone with Doze, but the work isn't done yet.
