4:00 pm
it's good business for us it's kind of like being a doctor you know if there's a disaster business is. better unfortunately. the news this hour russian passenger jet overshoots the runway at a moscow airport breaks into pieces and careers into a busy highway we hear from the palace's boy who became the first rescuers on the scene tonight and experts what could have gone so badly wrong. if you just joined us for a good morning to you could have your company as one am here in moscow is kevin owen at the new center in the big news tonight for people who've been killed after the passenger plane crashed into the side of one of moscow's main highways and in
4:01 pm
the jet broke into three parts on the right wing caught fire after it overshot the runway of a new poll on boards only eight crew members four survived but they were in a serious condition with head injuries with an ocean as the latest. four people have died three man the captain the flight engineer and the second pilot and one woman twenty eight year old hostages four are others have been all clearly severely injured all of them have been young people as far as we know the oldest one has been just thirty two years old and all of them have been flight attendants and now their true being treated at different hospitals here in moscow and we are hearing from the doctors who have been taken care of them for these latest hours that all of them are in a very serious condition and the condition of one of them is set to be very critical but they had to pull it to all four airliner flying from the czech
4:02 pm
republic to moscow care reared off the runway at new cover airport while lending and then crashed into one of the city's busiest highways caves highway and then broke into three parts and almost immediately caught on fire the raw three main causes that are considered. to be the reason of this tragedy and they are weather conditions. of pilot error and technical failure but i have to say that both the captain and the second pilot have been very experienced passionless with the fifteen thousand for the captain and ten thousands of flight hours for the second pilot sully every asian expres saying that one of the reasons why it all went wrong could be the fact that the airplane that is designed to carry at least two hundred people has been almost empty and it's very hard they say it's even
4:03 pm
harder to land. an empty plane than to land a full plane. well we're going to talk about the with a retired aviation specially shortly but first let's think about this not difficult is it to imagine the shock of those people who are driving along the major highway close to moscow when a two hundred capacity passenger jet plows into the side of the road you're on the very first images of the crash appeared indeed on social networks within minutes these are some of those shots like this video taken by an eyewitness many of those driving by stopped of course to give aid to the injured from the crash waiting with them for the emergency services to arrive one of the eyewitnesses was could chanelle she was one of those helping out at the scene. i saw one woman really covered in blood it was the flight attendant christina she said that the plane overshot the runway but they weren't carrying any passengers and then there is another survivor flight attendant there the rescue unit came very far but the
4:04 pm
ambulance couldn't get through because of the traffic so we gave the injured flight attendant first aid to our best knowledge called her mother to tell her she was ok it's wrapped her warm and language and clover you could find and even found a car to take her to hospital. but until now the to pull off to you two or four sad little history of accidents marty's luxury jet ski told me more about this particular model of airline and the company that owns it. this is the first incident involving the triple of two or four blind where people died so the first fatal incident involving this plane only once only on one occasion this plane which was designed back in the eighty's and has been in operation for a little more than a decade only once it's been actual incident two years ago it had a crash landing nobody was killed only a few were minor injuries were reported back then and so this is the first time something like this happened it is generally considered considered to be
4:05 pm
a very reliable plane it carries more than two hundred passengers very widely used for charity flights of russian tourists all major holiday destinations the company itself is a charter company called the red wings it's owned by alexander the russian billionaire who is a very prominent figure and he has been trying to run for mayor as office several years ago he also owns several british newspapers. including the evening standard so generally it's been a very good company i've used them couple of times and you know i've never thought they would actually have an incident something like that and their safety record speaks for itself they never had an incident of any kind before so this is the first time they've had anything like that a correspondent election and your skill they want to discuss possible causes of this plane crash it's not i'm joined by my vice is retired american airlines captain a member of the civil aviation team at the spectrum group markets and fortune isn't it whenever i speak to you they have been occasions before it was under a rather sad circumstances again we talk tonight this investigation is underway now
4:06 pm
but the question everyone's asking of course what could have gone so badly wrong it's early days but what do you think went wrong. ok who first thank you so much for having me in mind sympathies go out to war of the families of those who were killed and injured in all of those in russia who were are mourning the loss at this time and you know accidents don't generally happen for a single reason it's usually a group of vents that pile up to cause them and. it could have been the one way conditions if it was waiting for slippery gusts of when it did mention that the airplane was empty and yes a full airplane is easier to land just by the aerodynamics and the weight going onto a runway then a lighter airplane that might have a tendency to float a little bit longer causing the you know overrun situation and you could have been a malfunction within what over the top flight system one of these
4:07 pm
situations and all of these events are going to be looked at by a safety review board including the records of the pilots but you mentioned that the captain had fifteen thousand hours the first officer had ten thousand hours certainly. understand in their experience level they would know that a lighter airplane would be a little different but have different characteristics then a heavier airplane so are all of these events all of these critical criteria are going to be if you were going to very very strong i guess to what happened what happened in the previous incidents on these aircraft and overruns on that one that you mentioned before with the fatal accident and see if there is any kind of thread that connects these together training crew resource management a variety of potential. problems that really need to be looked at strong but we got
4:08 pm
a bit of a sam problem is a bit of whistling noise going on behind you will stay with it for a little bit more if we can. mentioned about the experience of the crew there that we've been talking about as well it seems that they had a lot of miles under their belt this plane crash right next to a busy ten lane highway that would have been packed it was rush hour yet amazingly no reports of any deaths of motorist passing by there despite the shock of it is that down to coincidence all or some of it may be down to the experience of the crew. even probably trucked it up to the boat certainly very worki depending upon the says he. they were going off the end of the runway the pilot may have had some control over the road or the back portion with sticks up in the back of the airplane generally. that is affected through eighty knots and if they had enough wind for us of course that you know we're going he may have
4:09 pm
had some were full of control and he may have had some control through thrust from the engines worth or right asymmetrical for us to maintain some control so the experience and the work combined to prevent a more careless truck exception we've heard i want to talk a bit about the actual took the last plane in a second before that officials this is all preliminary stuff but officials. for limit are really saying this could be down to pilot error but there's also been speculation tonight the could have been problems with the plane's landing system even though the check airport that it took off from earlier reports the plane was fully service serviceable when it left i guess problems can develop in midair nonetheless coming. well certainly probably at any time what you've been looking at is the type of braking system when they had the mix put the brakes on to stop the aircraft did they both did the rotation stopped at the same time was there an east
4:10 pm
of mexico condition that occurred that a tire was a tire blown was there any foreign object debris on the runway that could have been either ingested into an engine or perhaps blown tire there's such a variety of potential problems that exist that everyone has to be looked at because everyone is critical and crucial to investigating the outcome of this accident and to prevent something from happening again how this particular plane was only full years old wasn't it it was a modern generation russian airliner the temple of to full course when you talk about tip to pull off that name synonymous with the oldest style planes that until very recently couple of years ago recall snow that were causes of the russian man lines to pull off one five four i'm thinking do they have anything in common there the new one the old models. the newer aircraft this is very much like what we have here in the united states the boeing seven five seven and it's
4:11 pm
a fairly sophisticated aircraft there are new models that have come out equal in triple seven the seven and seven that are even more sophisticated but this is a sophisticated aircraft that had maiden's been done correctly in a star move assume that it has and the crew been trained properly in the game or soon but that's been the case you know sometimes accidents happen for those multitude those little steps in between. just to generate. an accident when conditions runway conditions german where something happened to inter and in system there is a variety of situations that have occurred. mark thanks for your thoughts my advice the retired american airlines captain member of the civil aviation team spectrum. thank you. now recap than of the main news this morning four people including the captain have been killed after a passenger plane crashed into the side of one of moscow's main highways earlier
4:12 pm
there were only eight people aboard all of them crew members at the time the plane crash the plane can carry up to two hundred passengers if it had been loaded the a four who survived in a serious condition with head injuries the red wings flight was from the czech republic and overshot the runway at the city of a look of oh airport at four thirty five pm local moscow time the airline said the plane had had its last full technical check up just two weeks ago. it's. coming up to one twelve in the morning moscow time more news of course ahead for you in a few minutes including a showcase of iran's naval and military buy on of vital oil root cause again to national nerves no but to run it says it's only proving it can defend itself from foreign attack look at the other big day pursuit and from prudence return to the kremlin to first of public dissent about it a look at how the changes on russia's political scene in twenty twelve will be remembered by the people who covered it all here on r.t.
4:13 pm
. i never thought i could earn a living this way. latterly a shill of ours and should just small arms of the sort i was to machine building plant a lot earlier sourced count of all the weapons she's fired over the past twelve years. i got so used to it sometimes my friends ask me to join them at the rifle range and i say no way i'm so tired of shooting. the planet's history goes from making firearms during world war two to ballistic missiles from your class submarines during the cold war the bulk of the soviet industry was moved here in the 1940's to flee the advancing germans south here also became the heart of soviet military production closed off to foreigners for half
4:14 pm
a century it thrived on the massive roots of the soviet military when the u.s.s.r. collapsed but life here was shaken to the core but some adapted to better than others. this is this your old truck factory russia's number one of truck made for girls a look at how well the workplace is organized everything's done to make sure the workers don't waste time waiting there was old production is booming in the factory has largely man. to get on to civil rails these giants are sold around the globe here based on brand new be no way to be delivered to a client's seventy trucks like this once roll up the bronx conveyor belt every day just look at about this things that absolutely huge. well i'm no formula one pilot but hopefully if i can get up that. well i can go far to try.
4:15 pm
to get one of these to travel to one covering the cost of about forty thousand dollars i should start saving my. mission. critical three. three.
4:16 pm
three. three. three. video for your media project a free media. international peace envoy to syria says there are only two directions for the conflict now a political process or hell and russia's foreign minister. said the syrian opposition refusal to talk with the government only paves the way for further bloodshed. followed the talks. the biggest stumbling block in the syrian conflict right now is that the opposition is rejecting any compromise saying strictly that president assad has to go while assad himself says he's not going anywhere he's protecting his country and moscow says nobody's able to persuade him to change his
4:17 pm
mind and neither side is willing to put its weapons down if. you know the only alternative is. really hand on a political process and then we have all of us to work ceaselessly for the political process mr brahimi added that this should be a syrian allowed political process which should be based on the agreements reached by world powers in geneva and they include forming a transitional government which could include all sides of the conflict but the opposition is not only unwilling to negotiate with the suing authorities it's now rejecting direct talks with moscow which has been trying to be a mediator and we've heard from the leader of the recently established opposition polish and who demanded moscow to apologize for what he said was support for president assad. and i understand that mr had tb is probably not very experienced
4:18 pm
in politics if he's looking to be a serious politician it is in his interest to hear our position from us and not from the media that sometimes discords information was lost so i'll repeat we're ready to talk to all opposition forces but we start from the premise that they should not only think about their own ambitions but also the fate of the syrian people and if they think that russia could play a role in the country's tragedy they should meet our representatives with no preconditions official notice meanwhile the violence is continuing to escalate in syria there have been more terrorist attacks the rebels have been also attacking states military air strips of wild government troops have been responding with more shelling. iran's navy is deployed in the strait of hormuz a key shipping route for one fifth of the world's oil and showcasing terrans military capabilities with maneuvers devised to test combat ships submarines reconnaissance and a new made range missile drills covering the growing pressure and sanctions though
4:19 pm
against iran's nuclear program global diplomacy especially soraya simple ridge says the purpose of the exercise is not to show still ity but in readiness to defend the country's borders. where the sympathy united states is wait a covert war against iran so iran has been preparing itself and demonstrating its nest to defend itself i don't believe that iran would ever take action if we see more naval military exercises right now it's because the media is focusing on iran whereas in fact. earlier this month there was operation lucky mariner with twenty seven countries participating. although a lot of them were observer states and they were all the way in the persian gulf in iran as territory in the media is silent on this but when you run demonstrates it's very nice to defend its sovereignty and its national interest then there is the
4:20 pm
media focus on iraq it's been a turbulent year for russian politics with a team of putin's come back to the kremlin with big opposition rallies plus pussy riots infamous cathedral performance protest of a court case and followed that splitting russian society here now then is some of the r.t. stuff including me who covered it all in twenty twelve recall what happened. presidential election twenty three cameras up on this roof correspondents throughout moscow and i mean you come of course live throughout the night here is a great night was. the real color was right behind us was in it but but so one point when putin came out to show me like crowds were a cost to move the thousands and thousands of people i suppose so celebrating his
4:21 pm
victory one of the main points the unprecedented protests that took place up to that election work and produce rallies that number really feels like we are actually taking part in the event it was during one of the massive protests rallies in moscow square it really fifty for the first time when i saw the crowd watching the t.v. truck parked right next to ours another station and i realized how soon was people really turned uncontrollable or was second and held in just as easily chaos rebirthing of people trying to get political points in the past twelve months. the best way to do that would be a bag on your head and do some. thing that was important to get across covering it is the people's political flavors in this country the fact was that what they did was deeply offensive to a huge number of people not something that. when they were looking at the push he
4:22 pm
was case. when he made a press release dowd's our interview with president putin the first that he's ever given us he's this third inauguration we see dozens and dozens of calls from international media representatives and they were all asking us just one question did he say anything about it was the right case nothing in fact the more challenging it is gauging the conversation would be of course not. not a big list in my head i wanted to hear about his thoughts on the ongoing syrian conflict also whether the punishment or the push the right pump but it was indeed with hindsight maybe too heavy and some interesting comments to make about that i would have thought about the russian opposition movement one of the big stories of the year the streets were available for protest that is for sure and i think it's good that people are conscious about politics well politics is not a big deal among most people here in this country would want to be getting the chains elected only be good for society and i think the the authorities reacted with relatively low. and minimal
4:23 pm

4:29 pm
chemistry professor are known for writing a financial economic investment year in review that's out today why does anybody care about your views on on this subject. it's an excellent question actually. i'm pretty good at distilling complexity down to simplicity so i take a weed whacker to these complex markets we've been it's a hobby of mine. and at the end of each year i summarize what i see and then and i like trying to find the plotline within the noise so that shoots numbers of offense that. occur during the year but come on michael lewis' way i'm tempted to to figure out where there's actually a theme occurring and where the most interesting one is going to wise guy so that it lies guy people always appreciate that before we get into what some of the main themes are for this year do you think your investment track record as an individual investor.
