- Monday Jul 17, 2017
The family of the Sarah Jones, a camera assistant killed while working on the Gregg Allman biopic “Midnight Rider,” was awarded $11.2 million Monday in a civil suit over her death.Jones, 27, was killed in 2014 during the filming of a dream sequence in which William Hurt, playing Allman, occupied a hospital bed on a live railroad trestle above the Altamaha River near Doctortown, Georgia. Director Randall Miller served a year in jail after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing.“CSX is deeply sympathetic to the terrible loss suffered by the family of Ms. Sarah Jones, but respectfully disagrees with the conclusions reached by the jury today and will appeal,” said Rob Doolittle, a spokesman at the Jacksonville, Florida-based company.Attorneys for Jones’ family argued that CSX should have taken precautions to avoid the crash, and said two CSX trains that passed the movie crew before the collision should have reported the group.
- Railroad to pay $3.9M for train death of film worker
By RUSS BYNUM, Associated Press - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
(AP) — A railroad owner plans to appeal a jury's decision that it must pay $3.9 million to the family of a movie worker killed on a Georgia railroad trestle in 2014, a spokesman for the company said.The jury in Savannah decided in a civil verdict Monday that CSX Transportation shared in the blame for the deadly freight train collision even though the film crew was trespassing.The 27-year-old camera assistant died in the crash Feb. 20, 2014, during the first day of shooting "Midnight Rider," an ill-fated movie about Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers Band.The film's director, Randall Miller, served a year in jail after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing charges.The jury in Savannah heard testimony during the civil trial that two CSX trains rolled through while the movie crew stood on both sides of the tracks within an hour before the crash, but the operators of those trains never called dispatchers to alert them.

- Air Canada flight came 100 feet from hitting planes at SFO
By Sarah Ravani - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
The pilot of an Air Canada flight was ordered to abort a nighttime landing at San Francisco International Airport last week after coming 100 feet from hitting two of four commercial planes lined up on a taxiway to takeoff, Canadian investigators said in a report released Thursday.The preliminary report by the Transportation Safety Board of Canada found that the Air Canada jet, an Airbus A320 with 140 people aboard, was approaching Taxiway C instead of the adjacent runway when the pilot was ordered to pull out of the landing.The plane, which had been cleared for landing on Runway 28R by air traffic controllers, was about 100 feet above the first two planes on the taxiway, 200 feet above the third plane in line for takeoff and 300 feet above the last jet waiting to depart when the landing was aborted.The aircraft was also determined to be about 29 feet off to the side of the planes at the front pack on Taxiway C waiting to takeoff, investigators said.The report also stated that the air traffic controller that was instructing the pilot was “coordinating another facility” at the time of the landing when a crew member from one of the sitting aircraft intervened and asked where the Air Canada jet was going.“One of the things that I know investigators will probably do is try to talk to air traffic controllers as well as the crew of the incident aircraft,” Holloway said.The Air Canada jet was instructed by an air traffic controller to reroute and conduct a “go-around” as it approached the runway just before midnight Friday, according to the FAA.
- Lighting should have made pilots aware of potential disaster
By DAVID KOENIG, AP Airlines Writer - Saturday Jul 15, 2017
Investigators looking into the frighteningly close call involving an airliner that nearly hit planes on the ground at San Francisco International Airport will try to determine why the pilots made such a rookie mistake and nearly landed on a busy taxiway instead of the runway.Investigators from the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board may arrive this weekend and interview the pilots and air traffic controllers, an agency spokesman said Friday.After an air traffic controller ordered them to abandon their landing, the pilots pulled up their Airbus A320 just in time, circled and landed correctly on the runway.A recording of the radio calls between pilots and the control tower captured uncertainty in the Air Canada cockpit as the plane approached shortly before midnight on July 7.From the vantage point of the Air Canada crew, four parallel surfaces appeared below them — from left to right they were taxiway F; runway 28L, which was closed; runway 28R, on which they were supposed to land, and taxiway C, where the other planes were waiting their turn to take off.Chris Manno, an American Airlines pilot, said the Air Canada crew should have stopped their approach while they figured out why they were seeing lights from other planes on what they thought was the runway.Three passengers died after the plane's tail struck a seawall while landing on runway 28L — next to the runway where the Air Canada jet landed.
