    German mail service DHL said that it had not made certain personal deliveries through its express service to the Berlin district of Wedding due to fraud and attacks on their carriers, but tamped down reports of “no-go” areas. A DHL spokesman told news agency DPA on Wednesday that the company has asked certain people who live in the Wedding neighborhood to pick up their packages at a DHL Express station in Wilmersdorf instead, noting that this policy has only been applied in a few isolated cases. The spokesman further explained that DHL will ask recipients in the future to also...

    From Havana, Cuba - by Yoani, Sanchez: A couple of years ago I went to the DHL office in Miramar to send some family videos to friends in Spain. The clerk looked at me as if I were trying to send a molecule of oxygen to another galaxy. Without even touching the Mini DV cassette, she told me that the Havana branch only accepted VHS. I thought it was a question of size, but the explanation she gave was even more surprising, “It’s just that our machines to view the content only read the large cassettes.” When I tried to...

    ZURICH (Reuters) - A Russian who lost his wife and two children in Germany's worst aviation disaster went on trial in Switzerland on Tuesday for killing the air traffic controller he held responsible. Vitaly Kaloyev, 48, lost his family when a DHL cargo plane and a Russian passenger jet collided in Swiss-controlled airspace over southern Germany on July 1, 2002. He is charged with the premeditated killing of Peter Nielsen, the only air traffic controller on duty at the time. Under Swiss law this charge ranks between murder and manslaughter and carries a maximum sentence of 20 years. "I went...

    Monterey Herald ^ | 11/28/04 | Don Thompson - AP
    SACRAMENTO - He's used his millions to benefit exotic show horses, a home for retired chimpanzees - and California's actor-governor. William Armsted Robinson has quietly become one of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's top donors, periodically trading off the pinnacle with San Diego Chargers owner Alex Spanos and Spanish language television entrepreneur Jerry Perenchio. Stockton real estate developer Spanos and Univision owner Perenchio are high-profile businessmen with long-term interests in California. But Robinson is an elusive, reclusive man whose first major foray into influencing politics is the $650,000 he has given Schwarzenegger. Schwarzenegger fund-raiser Marty Wilson describes Robinson as a "very private,...

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - William Armsted Robinson, a top contributor to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, founded Document Handling Limited, one of the nation's first courier services, and sold it for $57 million last year. Competitors United Parcel Service and Federal Express, which fought the sale, wanted Robinson to testify that he was merely a financial front for the minority owner, Germany's Deutsche Post. The U.S. Department of Transportation eventually ruled against their claim and allowed the sale. In a transcript of his sworn confidential deposition, obtained by The Associated Press, Robinson said he had no idea how he came up with his...

    On 22nd November 2003, a DHL A300 B4 had been airborne from Baghdad Airport for just over 3 minutes when the calm in the cockpit was shattered by the sound of a loud bang. At about 8,000ft an explosion was heard, followed by a cacophony of aural warnings and visual displays showing a master warning on all flight controls. Unbeknown to the crew at that time, the aircraft had been struck by a missile.

    The Seattle Times ^ | 4/2/04 | Shirleen Holt
    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use. As expected, 1,000 former Airborne Express workers will lose their jobs in Seattle over the next 12 months as the new owner, German air-cargo company DHL Express, concentrates operations at its headquarters in South Florida. DHL filed the layoff notice with the state Employment Security Department yesterday, ending faint hope that some administrative jobs might remain here. Workers at the offices in Belltown received no official company-wide announcement of the job cuts. But many have already gotten offers to relocate to other offices around the United States. "Most here at our...

On Tuesday, an air traffic controller who worked for Skyguide, the Swiss airspace agency, was stabbed to death in his home in Kloten, near Zurich.

Police said a dark-haired man in his 50s rang the doorbell at the controller's home....

    No Flight Controls In a situation reminiscent of the United Airlines DC-10 landing without hydraulics in Iowa in 1989, the crew of a DHL A300 hit by a missile relied solely on engine power without flight controls to land at Baghdad. Pierre Ghyoot, secretary general of the Belgian Cockpit Assn. (BeCA), told Aviation Week & Space Technology that the pilots were able to guide the aircraft to a safe landing on Nov. 22 using only engine power settings. The aircraft lost all three hydraulic systems and all flight controls. Ghyoot said his organization is already planning to give the crew...
