SUNDAY JULY 20 2014 NEWS 05 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA three lost in disaster Somebody should step in and stop all of this nonsense because we should be in a peaceful happy world. THERESA BAKERS MOTHER, ANGELA TURNBULL 04 NEWS SUNDAY JULY 20 2014 TELE01Z01MA - V1 Elle Macpherson Fresh & Fifty Supermodel explains how an alkaline diet tightened her skin and her tummy INSIDE AIR SPACE REGULATIONS It is up to the individual nations, which are members of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), to alert ICAO when they feel an area of air space could be confusing or compromised. This does not just relate to military compromise. This could also just relate to general commercial problems with air traffic control. ICAO then disseminates this information to all other individual nations directly through an unspecified bureaucratic method and it is then up to each nation to respond accordingly. There is no law stating commercial or private passenger aircraft MUST comply with these alerts. It is up to individual nations how they choose to receive and/or comply with this information. The only nation which takes into account international war zones and conflict, and enforces federal no-fly zones directly to US-registered aircraft, is the US via the Federal Aviation Authority. Warning issued May 9, 2014 and valid until October 15, 2014 Warnings issued due to terrorist activities and civil unrest. Significant risk to civil flights from man-portable air defence systems and indirect fire weapons. International civil aviation flights and the countrys airports have been threatened and targeted. Warning issued June 1, 2014 valid until August 31, 2014 Civil flights operating into, out of, within, or over this region at risk from smallarms, rocket propelled grenades, anti-aircraft fire and shoulder-fired, man-portable air defence systems. Warning issued June 5 valid until November 1, 2014 Warning that North Korea has a history of launching short-range and medium-range ballistic missiles with no warning. Two medium-range missiles were launched in March, 2014. Operators should use caution when flying in and around Pyongyang. Operators warned they may also experience GPS interference when flying near the Korean Peninsula, especially near Seoul, South Korea. Warning issued November 29, 2013 valid until November 29, 2014 Potentially hostile situation. Operators should avoid Damascus filght information region after reports of surface to air missile firings, as well as military activity in the vicinity of airfields. SYRIA Warning issued April 23, 2014 updated July 18 and valid until October 31 Potentially hazardous situation. Until further notice due to recent events, all flight operations are prohibited. UKRAINE Warning issued August 23, 2013 Prohibition against certain flights within the territory and airspace of Iraq. Overflights of Iraq may go ahead provided they are above flight level 200 and subject to the approval of the Iraqi authorities. IRAQ YEMEN EGYPT/SINAI PENINSULA NORTH KOREA FLIGHT MH17 KATRINA Tepper watched the Ukraine crash in horror; her son was flying home that day on MH17 but a frantic check of his itinerary showed his flight was a day later. Still, she took her son off the flight and is trying to get him onto another. Id never fly Malaysia Airlines again, she says. If Im putting my son on a plane, Im checking their safety records. Safety has come behind cost and comfort for customers in recent years, but experts say that will change. However, people like Ms Tepper will still not be able to find out the flight path, and whether it crosses conflict zones, before they book or even board, said Geoff Dell, a former airport operations safety manager and now accident forensics expert at Central Queensland University. If youre a passenger and youre about to go on an aero plane, theres really nobody who can tell you where youre going to go, he said. The decisions on what routes they fly are made in their flight operations department. Airlines that had invested heavily in safety, such as Qantas, Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airlines, struggled to use it as a selling point. But that would likely change. Aircraft are basically a flying bus, says the managing director of International Traveller Media, Quentin Long. Some people will fly 40 hours to save money. Increasingly, that will be about reputation and safety. Air safety is one of those things that are ignored until you really want it. Yet some cash-strapped airlines have been tightening their safety budgets. Malaysia Airlines, which was in financial distress before MH370 disappeared, has been accused of flying over Crimea to spend less on fuel. Cost-cutting could take years to show in safety records, which are not a predictor of future performance, Mr Long said. The problem is the lag between investment and success and investment and failure is huge. Experts are divided about whether Malaysia Airlines should have been flying over Crimea given the civil war, even though US and UK regulators had issued warnings, but not restrictions, over the area. Malaysia Airlines yesterday said it did not fly over the Crimean Peninsula, which was the area specifically identified as risky by the International Civil Aviation Organisation. Some of the top-tier airlines considered safest in the world, including Singapore Airlines and Lufthansa, were reportedly still flying in the region. Qantas moved away from the area months ago, but yesterday refused to say whether any more routes would be reexamined. We review our flight paths regularly, including in response to world events, a spokeswoman said.

They were just fishing mad. TRAILER BOAT CLUB PRESIDENT TONY BUTLER Maningrida community have lost a friend, a hero, an angel. MANINGRIDA COLLEGE PRINCIPAL STUART DWYER I dont really care about the war between the Ukranians and the Russians but I would love to have my daughter come home. EMMA BELLS FATHER, PAUL BELL Devoted Palmerston couple loved to fish and travel THE Darwin community has been shattered by the loss of two of its own. Palmerston residents, Wayne and Theresa Baker, were embarking on a big adventure together, but their Europe trip became their last. Wayne, 55, and Theresa, 53, (above) are survived by their sons, Jeff and Steven. Trailer Boat Club president Tony Butler said the devoted couple who had been married more than 30 years had worked hard towards their retirement. They were good, family people. They built a house over in Queensland, the trip over to Europe was the start of their retirement, Mr Butler said. Both Theresa and Wayne had been public servants in the NT government. In March, Theresa took longservice leave from her position at the Department of Children and Families. Wayne had been retired for the past few years and together the pair fished whenever they could. Mr Butler, who has known the couple since the late 90s, said the Daly River was their favourite fishing spot, and they found any excuse to get on the water. They couldnt get enough, he said. They fish ed the river where ever and whenever they could. They were just ... fishing mad. That was their life. They were very active at the Trailer Boat Club. They were at almost every social occasion. They helped organise the Blue Water Classic which has been running for 12 years now. Mr Butler held fond memories of being out on the boat with Wayne, having fished competitively and socially together many times. The insatiable travellers had been preparing for the next stage in their lives, spending six weeks in Bali and Thailand before visiting Europe. After their return, they had planned a year-long road trip around Australia before retiring to Queensland. The couple had already bought a camper trailer and 4WD. That wont be done now, Theresas grieving 73-yearold mother Angela Turnbull said. At least they died doing something they wanted to do. They were keen to travel and thats all they were interested in doing in their retirement. Mrs Turnbull and her husband Bob were yesterday struggling to realise their daughter and son-in-law would not be flying home to share travel stories. She was mad on taking photos but I dont think well see them now, she said. Mrs Turnbull said the family was shocked, distressed and very upset. I think there should be justice, she said. My mother used to say, because we come from Poland, my mother used to always say Russia will one day wipe us all out and Im starting to believe that Russia is still very, very strong in everything they try to do. Somebody should step in and stop all of this nonsense because we should be in a peaceful happy world. Mrs Turnbull said the family had phoned authorities after seeing the crash on the news. A staffer in foreign affairs confirmed the Bakers had checked in and told Mrs Turnbull there were no survivors. It was a hard way to take it but thats how you get news, she said. The last time Mrs Turnbull spoke to her daughter was last weekend when they spoke from opposite ends of the earth. She was very happy and the whole holiday was very good, she said.
