Tibet Airlines A319 after runway excursion
Tibet Airlines A319 suffers runway excursion on departure

Sometimes (but very rarely) news breaks before we record the podcast. This week a Tibet Airlines A319 suffered a runway excursion during its departure roll. The aircraft veered off the runway with both engines and the landing gear breaking away from the aircraft.

Two Volaris aircraft in Mexico City with a close call
A close call in Mexico City

Earlier this week in Mexico City a Volaris A320neo was on the runway preparing to take off when a second Volaris A320neo was cleared to land. Controllers were alerted to the conflict just in time and the aircraft on approach performed a go around for safe landing. This incident comes just days after a letter was sent to Mexican regulators expressing concern about the abilities of the air traffic controllers to conduct safe operations.
