The fatal wreck took place minutes after the plane took off from Milan’s Linate airport at about 1 p.m., according to aviation agency ANSV,...

    Journalists due to accompany Joe Biden on his first overseas trip as president were delayed on their outbound flight to England on Tuesday night - because of cicadas.

The pilots were forced to turn the aircraft back to the departure gate. The insects were responsible for the delay, a spokesperson for Delta...

    "The best-case scenario is that someone is engaging in domestic surveillance. But there's a much darker scenario that could be in motion. There are a handful of protections for the American people that the Deep State wishes didn’t exist. The Freedom of Information Act is the most famous and powerful as it has been used over the decades to uncover some of the most nefarious actions by government while acting as a deterrent to prevent them from being even more dastardly. One of the least ballyhooed and utilized protections is the public transponder data available to track aircrafts and ships....

    A passenger plane was forced to return to the airport in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum after an angry cat, which somehow got into the cockpit, attacked the pilots shortly after takeoff, local media reports. This Wednesday's flight of the Sudanese Tarco airline bound for Qatar’s capital, Doha, was proceeding in a totally routine manner – that is, until a most unlikely passenger caused an emergency mid-air. Having departed from the Khartoum International Airport, the plane was in the air for roughly half an hour when an unregistered passenger was spotted inside the pilot’s cabin. The passenger in question was...

Yet the London-based journalist who first posted that person’s footage on Twitter, the BBC says, is claiming that authorities have arrested the wrong individual.
