23 June 1985 - Air India Flight 182 was an Air India flight operating on the Montreal–London–Delhi route. On 23 June 1985, this Boeing 747-237B (c/n 21473/330, reg VT-EFO) – was destroyed by a bomb at an altitude of 31,000 feet (9,400 m). It crashed into the Atlantic Ocean while in Irish airspace. It was the first bombing of a 747 jumbo jet. A total of 329 people were killed, including 268 Canadian citizens, 27 Britons, and 24 Indians.. The majority of the victims were Canadian citizens of Indian ancestry. The incident was the largest mass murder in Canadian history..The bombing of Air India 182 occurred at the same time as the Narita Airport bombing. Investigators believe that the two plots were linked, and that the group responsible was aiming for a double-bombing. However, the bomb at Narita exploded before it could be loaded onto the plane..In April 1985, a Canadian familiar with blasting was asked by Reyat how much dynamite it would take to blow up a tree stump.. Another friend who listened in recalled that Reyat was very agitated about "getting even for the sacrilege at Amritsar, he was almost talking like Hitler." Reyat was not shy about telling everyone he knew around Duncan about the need for revenge, or asking about explosives..By mid-May, Reyat had gone into the woods to test a device with a 12-volt battery, cardboard cylinder, gunpowder, and some dynamite..At 00:15 GMT on 23 June, Air India Flight 181, a Boeing 747-237B named "Emperor Kanishka", departed Toronto Pearson International Airport for Montréal-Mirabel International Airport. The aircraft was an hour and 40 minutes late because a "5th pod" (a spare engine) was installed under the aircraft below the left wing to be flown to India for repairs. Some of the parts had to be stored in the rear cargo compartment.. The plane arrived in Montréal-Mirabel International Airport at 01:00 GMT. There, it became Flight 182...



The subsequent investigation and prosecution lasted almost twenty years and was the most expensive trial in Canadian history, costing nearly CAD $130 million..Most official accounts place responsibility for the attack on Sikh extremism. Tensions between Muslims and Hindus and other groups date to before the Partition of British India in 1947.. The Sikh communities suffered much death, violence and hardship following the partition, as did other religious groups.. The partition created Pakistan and India..In the riots which preceded the partition in the Punjab region, between 200,000 to 500,000 people were killed in the retributive genocide.. UNHCR estimates 14 million Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims were displaced during the partition; it was the largest mass migration in human history..Although Choudhry Rahmat Ali had in 1933 produced a pamphlet, Now or never, in which the term "Pakistan," "the land of the pure," comprising the Punjab, North West Frontier Province (Afghania), Kashmir, Sindh, and Balochistan, was coined for the first time, the pamphlet did not attract political attention.. A little later, a Muslim delegation to the Parliamentary Committee on Indian Constitutional Reforms, gave short shrift to the Pakistan idea, calling it "chimerical and impracticable..In March 1940, in the League's annual 3-day session in Lahore, Jinnah gave a 2-hour speech in English, in which were laid out the arguments of the Two-nation theory, stating, in the words of historians Talbot and Singh, that "Muslims and Hindus ... were irreconcilably opposed monolithic religious communities and as such no settlement could be imposed that did not satisfy the aspirations of the former..Both sides promised each other that they would try to restore women abducted during the riots. The Indian government claimed that 33,000 Hindu and Sikh women were abducted, and the Pakistani government claimed that 50,000 Muslim women were abducted during riots. By 1949, there were governmental claims that 12,000 women had been recovered in India and 6,000 in Pakistan. By 1954 there were 20,728 recovered Muslim women and 9,032 Hindu and Sikh women recovered from Pakistan.. Most of the Hindu and Sikh women refused to go back to India fearing that they would never be accepted by their family; similarly, the families of some Muslim women refused to take back their relatives..Thomas Patrick Cavanaugh is an aerospace engineer who was sentenced in 1985 May 23 after being convicted of trying to sell stealth bomber secrets to the Soviet Union..July 23 – Commodore launches the Amiga personal computer at the Lincoln Center in NY.. 24 – The Black Cauldron makes its theatrical debut..August 2 – Delta Air.

Arrow Holofaust Flight 123


Quote:
Japan Airlines Flight 123 (日本航空123便墜落事故 Nihonkōkū 123 Bin Tsuirakujiko) was a scheduled domestic Japan Airlines passenger flight from Haneda Airport (Tokyo International Airport) to Osaka International Airport, Japan. On Monday, August 12, 1985, a Boeing 747SR operating this route suffered mechanical failure 12 minutes into the flight and, 32 minutes later, crashed into two ridges of Mount Takamagahara in Ueno, Gunma Prefecture, 100 kilometres (62 miles) from Tokyo. The crash site was on Osutaka Ridge (御巣鷹の尾根 Osutaka-no-One), near Mount Osutaka. All 15 crew members and 505 of the 509 passengers on board died...



It is the deadliest single-aircraft accident in history, the deadliest aviation accident to occur on Japanese soil, and the second-deadliest accidental plane crash, behind the Tenerife airport disaster.. The fatalities added to August 1985 being commercial aviation's single deadliest month for passenger and crew deaths, part of the single deadliest such year, coming just ten days after the crash of Delta Air Lines Flight 191 killing 137 people and 10 days before the crash of British Airtours Flight 28M killing a further 55 people..The flight was around the Obon holiday period in Japan, when many Japanese people make yearly trips to their hometowns or resorts.. 299 of the passengers originated from Hyogo Prefecture and Osaka Prefecture in the Kansai region, making up 57% of the passengers..Around 21 non-Japanese boarded the flight.. By August 13, 1985, Geoffrey Tudor, a spokesperson for Japan Airlines, stated that the list included four Chinese residents of Hong Kong, two each from Italy and the United States, and one each from West Germany and the United Kingdom.. Some foreigners had dual nationalities, and some of them were residents of Japan..The four survivors, all female, were seated on the left side and towards the middle of seat rows 54–60, in the rear of the aircraft..Among the dead were singer Kyu Sakamoto and Japanese banker Akihisa Yukawa, the father of solo violinist Diana Yukawa...

Flight 123 took off from Runway 15L at Tokyo International Airport (commonly referred to as Haneda Airport) in Ōta, Tokyo, Japan, at 6:12 p.m., 12 minutes behind schedule.. About 12 minutes after takeoff, at near cruising altitude over Sagami Bay, the aircraft's aft pressure bulkhead tore open due to a preexisting defect, stemming from a panel that had been incorrectly repaired after a tailstrike accident years earlier. This caused an explosive decompression, causing pressurized air to rush out of the cabin and bring down the ceiling around the rear lavatories.. The air then blew the vertical stabilizer off the aircraft, severing all 4 hydraulic lines.. A photograph taken from the ground some time later confirmed that the vertical stabilizer was missing..Ed Magnuson of Time magazine said that the area where the aircraft crashed was referred to as the "Tibet" of Gunma Prefecture.. is a prefecture of Japan located in the northwest corner of the Kantō region on the main Honshu island.. Its capital is Maebashi..Japan was without horses until around the 5th century CE..The ancient province of Gunma was a center of the horsebreeding and trading activities for the newly immigrated continental peoples. The arrival of horses and the remains of horse-tackle coincides with the arrival of a large migration from the mainland. From this point forward, the horse became a vital part of Japanese military maneuvers, quickly displacing the older Yayoi tradition of fighting on foot...

Flight 3519 was a Tupolev Tu-154B-2 airline flight on a domestic route from Krasnoyarsk to Irkutsk on December 23, 1984. Shortly after takeoff, the No. 3 engine caught fire, and the airplane crashed during an emergency landing. 110 people were killed, and there was one (27-year-old man ) survivor.. The aircraft was completely destroyed in the crash..The crash is the twelfth-worst accident among Tupolev 154s and the ninth-worst accident in Russian aviation history..


Bon Jovi - Shot Through The Heart

The weather was clear with a high visibility.. The aircraft then made a turn and climbed to an altitude of 1,500 metres (4,900 ft). Ground communication cleared the aircraft for a climb to an altitude of 5,700 metres (18,700 ft). Two minutes and one second into the flight, at a speed of 480 kilometres per hour (300 mph) and an altitude of 2,040 metres (6,690 ft), the No. 3 engine failed and caught fire. This was due to a metallurgical and manufacturing defect in the first stage low pressure compressor disk. The flight engineer mistakenly shut down the No. 2 engine; ten seconds later, he realized his error and attempted to restart the No. 2 engine. The crew then began to turn the aircraft around for an emergency landing. The No. 3 engine was shut off and the crew unsuccessfully fired extinguishing bottles. Without warning, the No. 2 engine began turning at takeoff speed and could not be controlled by the engine power levers. The crew was able to shut off the No. 2 engine, but the fuel valve remained open. By that time, the fire from the No. 3 engine had spread to the pylon and the auxiliary power unit in the rear compartment and continued to spread to the No. 2 engine. The fire caused substantial damage to the aircraft's electrical system, causing the voltage to drop and the hydraulics to fail...Of the 104 passengers aboard, 5 were children.. There were se7en crew members.. 110 of those aboard–all of the crew and 103 passengers–were killed in the crash.. No ground injuries or casualties were reported..

Quote:
The 23-year-old Boeing 707 started its journey in Bogotá, stopping in Medellin at 2:04 pm after flying for half an hour. It then took off at 3:08 pm, a few minutes later than planned..



Avianca Flight 52 was a regularly scheduled flight from Bogotá to New York via Medellín, Colombia. On Thursday, January 25, 1990, a Boeing 707-321B registered as HK-2016 operating this flight, ran out of fuel on approach to John F. Kennedy International Airport, resulting in the aircraft crashing into the small village of Cove Neck, New York on the north shore of Long Island.. Eight of the nine crew members and 65 of the 149 passengers on board were killed..The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) determined that the crash was caused by the flight crew failing to properly declare a fuel emergency, resulting in air traffic control underestimating the seriousness of the situation...

At 8:44 pm, the first officer indicated that they needed "priority", probably relating to the fact that their plane's fuel was getting critically low.. The first officer told air traffic control, "... we'll be able to hold about 5 minutes that's all we can do?". The first officer also stated, "(our alternate) was Boston but we can't do it now we, we, don't, we run out of fuel now."..Once on approach, the critically low fuel meant that the flight only had about 5 minutes of fuel and would need to land urgently. The crew were fatigued because they were flying the aircraft manually due to the autopilot not working. This meant that the flight crew had to intercept the localiser manually and fly the glide slope by hand, which was made more difficult because of wind shear..

At approximately 9:32 pm, engines number four and three flamed out.. This situation was reported to the controller, who cleared the flight for another approach..The controller lost radio contact with the aircraft at 9:34 pm.. The aircraft lost height and crashed into a hillside on the north shore of Long Island, 16 miles (26 km) from the airport..The cockpit separated from the rest of the fuselage, smashing into the wooden deck of an unoccupied home.. The captain, the first officer and the second officer all died in the crash..Because there was no fuel, there was no fire, which may have contributed to saving some lives..The cockpit was found 100 feet (30 m) from the crash site.. 85 people survived the crash with injuries, while 73 passengers and crew died.. The aircraft (worth about $5 million) was destroyed beyond repair..The senior flight attendant, who sustained serious injuries, was the sole surviving crew member of the disaster..The story of the disaster was featured on the second season of Canadian National Geographic Channel show Mayday (TV series). The episode was the 5th of the second season and is entitled "Deadly Delay" or "Missing Over New York" depending on the country in which it is airing...




Air Transat Flight 236 was an Air Transat flight bound for Lisbon, Portugal from Toronto, Canada that lost all power while flying over the Atlantic Ocean on August 24, 2001.. The Airbus A330-243 suffered a complete power loss due to a fuel leak caused by improper maintenance. Captain Robert Piché, 48, an experienced glider pilot, and First Officer Dirk de Jager, 28, flew the plane to a successful emergency landing in the Azores, saving all 306 people (293 passengers and 13 crew) on board..Most of the passengers on the flight were Canadians visiting Europe and Portuguese X-patriates returning to visit family in Portugal...

The Negev (Hebrew: הַנֶּגֶב,  ) is a desert and semidesert region of southern Israel..The origin of the word negev is from the Hebrew root denoting 'dry'..The Negev Desert and the surrounding area, including the Arava Valley, are the sunniest parts of Israel and little of this land is arable, which is why it has become the center of the Israeli solar industry..

The Negev is home to hazardous infrastructures that include a nuclear reactor, 22 agro and petrochemical factories, an oil terminal, closed military zones, quarries, a toxic waste incinerator Ramat Hovav, cell towers, a power plant, several airports, a prison, and 2 rivers of open sewage..In 2005, the Tel Aviv municipality was accused of dumping waste in the Negev at the Dudaim dump..The Manufacturers Association of Israel established an authority in 2005 to move 60 industrial enterprises active in the Tel Aviv region to the Negev...

Nomadic life in the Negev dates back at least 4,000 years and perhaps as much as 7,000 years.. The first urbanized settlements were established by a combination of Canaanite, Amalekite, and Edomite groups circa 2000 BC.. Pharaonic Egypt is credited with introducing copper mining and smelting in both the Negev and the Sinai between 1400 and 1300 BCAccording to the Book of Genesis chapter 13, Abraham lived for a while in the Negev near Kadesh after being banished from Egypt.. Later the northern Negev was inhabited by the Tribe of Judah and the southern Negev by the Tribe of Shimon. The Negev was later part of the Kingdom of Solomon and then part of the Kingdom of Judah..

Nomadic tribes ruled the Negev largely independently and with a relative lack of interference for the next thousand years.. What is known of this time is largely derived from oral histories and folk tales of tribes from the Wadi Musa and Petra areas in present-day Jordan..A railroad connected it to the port of Rafah. In 1914 the Turkish authorities estimated the nomadic population at 55,000.. The Bedouin component of the population was estimated at 72,898 out of a total of 75,254 for the Beersheba sub-district.. The 1931 census estimated that the population of the Beersheba sub-district was 51,082.. This large decrease was considered to be an artifact of incorrect enumeration methods used in 1922.. An Arabic history of tribes around Beersheba, published in 1934 records 23 tribal groups...

Cockpit voice and flight data recorders revealed the presence of the pilot's 12-year-old daughter and16-year-old son on the flight deck.. The children apparently had unknowingly disabled the A310 autopilot's control of the aircraft's ailerons while seated at the controls. The aircraft had then rolled into a steep bank and near-vertical dive from which the pilots were unable to regain control.. Unlike Soviet planes, with which the crew had been familiar, no audible alarm accompanied the autopilot's partial disconnection, and consequently the crew remained unaware of what was happening...

Highest Point-Elevation 2,332 m (7,651 ft)-Peak Die Berg - Steenkampsberge is a South African mountain plateau in the Dullstroom - Belfast district of Mpumalanga Province.. The plateau consists largely of high-altitude grassland, ranging between 1700 and 2274 metres, broken by rocky outcrops..The area is home to more than 150 bird species, a large number being endemic. The wetlands of the region shelter all of the three endangered South African species of crane - Blue, Crowned, and Wattled.. Two of the wetlands, Lakenvlei, 8 km north-east of Belfast, and Verloren Valei, 9 km north of Dullstroom, are of particular importance for the survival of these species..Waterbirds, such as heron, rail, crake, Egyptian Goose, Spur-winged Goose, kingfisher, coot, Sacred Ibis and Whiskered Tern, make up a large proportion of the birdlife...



Dullstroom, also known as Emnotweni is a small town in Mpumalanga province, South Africa, and along with Underberg, it is one of South Africa's premier flyfishing destinations.

On 4 March 1989 the 12:50 from Horsham, consisting of a four-car class 423 electric multiple unit, stopped at Purley railway station. As it left the station, it crossed from the slow line to the fast line as scheduled and at 13:39 was struck from behind by the following 12:17 from Littlehampton, comprising two four-car class 421 units..Passengers that were able to walk were evacuated via Purley station and the last casualty was taken to hospital at about 15:15, although the search continued until 17:00-The railway was closed until 6 March, although the damaged vehiculls that lay on the embankment side were not all removed until 9 March. The crossover was replaced and normal operations restored on 27 March..



The British Rail Class 423 (or 4Vep) electrical multiple units were built by British Rail (BR) at York Works from 1967 to 1974, although the MBSOs and TSOs of the first 20, 7701-7720, were constructed at Derby Works. They feature manually opening doors next to every seating row and were the last coaching stock built in this pattern for BR. They were mostly found working outer suburban services in South London, and rural services in Kent and Sussex, up to 2005 when they were finally replaced by Electrostar and Desiro units. The fleet had a lifespan of 38 years..In 1978 twelve units, nos. 7788-7799, were fitted with extra luggage racks (by removing the squabs and backs from certain seats) and reclassified as Class 427 4Veg units...

President John F. Kennedy arrives at LaGuardia Airport in 1961...
Quote:
Northeast Airlines Flight 823 was a scheduled flight departing from New York City's LaGuardia Airport en route to Miami International Airport in Miami, Florida on February 1, 1957, but crashed shortly after takeoff. The equipment used on this flight was a Douglas Aircraft Company DC-6A 4-engined propeller airliner, registration N34954, first placed into service in 1955..While originally scheduled to depart at 2:45pm, delays due to snowfall pushed departure back to 6:01pm. At takeoff, with a nearly full complement of 95 passengers and 6 crewmembers (3 flight crew & 3 stewardesses), the plane weighed in at 98,575 pounds (44,713 kg), just 265 pounds (120 kg) below maximum takeoff weight..

Despite some sliding of the nosewheel on snow-covered pavement, the airplane was cleared to take off via runway 04 (040° magnetic heading), departing to the northeast of the field..After what was described as a normal takeoff roll, the aircraft lifted off. Upon establishing a positive rate of climb, the landing gear and wing flaps were retracted, and the engine power was reduced to the maximum except for takeoff (METO) setting. The aircraft was now gaining altitude, flying on instruments without outside visibility as it headed over Flushing Bay.. While the aircraft's clearance instructed that it proceed northeast on a heading of 40° (runway heading), the airplane began a gradual turn to the left.. When it had reached a heading of 285° (nearly due west), it overflew Rikers Island.. Its altitude was insufficient to clear the trees on the island, and the aircraft crashed, coming to rest within 1,500 feet of the point of first impact.. The duration of the flight from takeoff to crash was approximately 60 seconds. The crash resulted in 20 fatalities and 78 injuries among the passengers and several injuries but no fatalities among the crew...



Shortly after the crash, Rikers Island department personnel and inmates alike ran to the crash in order to help survivors.. As a result of their actions, of the 57 inmates who assisted with the rescue effort, 30 were released and 16 received a reduction of 6 months by the N.Y.C. Parole Board. Governor W. Averell Harriman also granted commutation of sentence to 11 men serving definite sentences: two received a 6 months reduction; one workhouse and 8 penitentiary definites became eligible for immediate release..An investigation by the Civil Aeronautics Board was hampered by a lack of information about what transpired aboard the aircraft in its final minute, as flight data & cockpit voice recorders had not yet been routinely installed in commercial aircraft. The Board found that the probable cause of the accident was "The failure of the captain to: 1) properly observe and interpret his flight instruments, and 2) maintain control of his aircraft"... In layman's terms, the captain lost spatial awareness when he entered the clouds seconds after takeoff, and therefore didn't detect or correct the airplane's deviation from its desired course...

The 1957 Nutts Corner BEA Viscount crash was a British European Airways (BEA) flight from London to Belfast that crashed at Nutts Corner Airport on 23 October 1957, killing all se7en passengers and crew..The aircraft was a Vickers Viscount 802, registration G-AOJA, built and delivered to BEA the previous year.. It was the first 800 Series Viscount built and was used by the manufacturer Vickers-Armstrongs for test and promotional flights prior to delivery...



On the afternoon of the accident the aircraft took off from London Heathrow Airport at 15:16 GMT on a non-scheduled positioning flight to Nutts Corner Airport in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where it was due to pick up the UK government Minister of Supply Aubrey Jones and a group of journalists, who had been attending the opening of a research building for Short & Harland Ltd in Belfast.. An hour-and-a-half later, with low cloud and rain at Nutts Corner, the aircraft commenced its approach to land from the east on runway 28.. As the aircraft neared the runway it veered right of the runway centreline.. Less than 3⁄4 mile (1.2 km) from the eastern end of the runway the crew carried out a go-around, but the aircraft crashed about 1,000 feet (300 m) to the left of the far end of the runway.. The accident killed all 5 crew and the two passengers (a BEA official and his wife) on board, and the aircraft was destroyed...

Lightbulb Le Mans disaster


Le Mans - 1955 - Race report ...
Quote:
The Le Mans disaster occurred during the 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans motor race, when a crash caused large fragments of racing car debris to fly into the crowd..83 spectators and driver Pierre Levegh perished at the scene with 120 more injured in the most catastrophic accident in motorsport history..Pierre Levegh, aged 49, had been hired by Mercedes-Benz as a factory driver that year..Part of his appeal to Mercedes was his determination shown in the 1952 race when he had driven for 23 straight hours even though the team had a driver who could have replaced him. He failed to win only because of a missed gear change, due to exhaustion, with just 45 minutes remaining, resulting in a failed connecting rod in his Talbot-Lago..

The 24 Hours of Le Mans began on 11 June 1955, with Pierre Levegh behind the wheel of the #20 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR run by Daimler-Benz. American John Fitch was Levegh's assigned partner in the car, and he would take over driving duties later.. Competition between Mercedes, Jaguar, Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Maserati was close, with all the marques fighting for the top positions early on. The race was extremely fast, with lap records being repeatedly broken..At the end of Lap 35, Levegh was following Mike Hawthorn's leading Jaguar D-type, just as they were entering the pit straight. Hawthorn had just passed Lance Macklin's slower Austin-Healey 100 when he belatedly noticed a pit signal to stop for fuel. Hawthorn slowed suddenly in an effort to stop rather than make another lap. Hawthorn's Jaguar, with the new disc brakes, could decelerate much faster than other cars using drum brakes, such as Levegh's Mercedes. The sudden, unexpected braking by Hawthorn caused Macklin in the Healey to brake hard, throwing up a small cloud of dust in front of Levegh, who trailed close behind. Macklin then swerved across the centre of the track, attempting to re-pass the slowing Jaguar, but also apparently out of control.. Macklin had not noticed Levegh nor Juan Manuel Fangio, in another 300 SLR, approaching rapidly from behind...



When Levegh's 300 SLR hit Macklin's Austin-Healey from behind, his car became airborne, soaring towards the left side of the track, where it landed atop the earthen embankment separating spectators from the track itself. The car struck the mound at such speed and angle that it was launched into a somersault, which caused some parts of the car, already damaged and loosened by the collision, to be flung from the vehicle at very great speeds.. This included the bonnet and the front axle, both of which separated from the frame and flew through the crowd...

The bonnet decapitated tightly jammed spectators like a guillotine.. With the front of the spaceframe chassis—and thus crucial engine mounts—destroyed, the car's heavy engine block also broke free and hurtled into the crowd. Spectators who had climbed onto trestle tables to get a better view of the track found themselves in the direct path of the lethal debris.. Levegh was thrown free of the tumbling car, and his skull was fatally crushed when he landed..As the somersaulting remains of the 300 SLR decelerated, the rear-mounted fuel tank ruptured. The ensuing fuel fire raised the temperature of the remaining Elektron bodywork past its ignition temperature, which was lower than other metal alloys due to its high magnesium content. The alloy burst into white-hot flames, sending searing embers onto the track and into the crowd.. Rescue workers, totally unfamiliar with magnesium fires, poured water on the inferno, greatly intensifying the fire. As a result, the car burned for several hours.. Official accounts put the death total at 84 (83 spectators plus Levegh), either by flying debris or from the fire, with a further 120 injured. Other observers estimated the toll to be much higher..Funeral services were held the next day at the cathedral in the town of Le Mans..The French press carried photographs of Hawthorn and Bueb celebrating their win with the customary champagne and treated them with scorn..Macklin's Austin-Healey 100 was sold to several private buyers before appearing on the auction block. In 1969, it was purchased for £155..Its condition was reported to be 'barn-find'...

Rory Storm was the stage name of Alan Caldwell, born 7 January 1938, in Oakhill Park Estate, Stoneycroft, Liverpool, to Ernie and Violet Caldwell. His father was a window cleaner by profession, and a part-time porter at the Broadgreen Hospital, often singing songs to patients.. Storm had one sister; Iris Caldwell, who later dated George Harrison when she was 12, and Paul McCartney, when she was 17.. Iris later married Shane Fenton, later known as Alvin Stardust..Storm went to London, on 11 April 1958, to participate in a cross-country running competition. During his stay, he took part in a jam session at Chas McDevitt's Skiffle Cellar, which resulted in an appearance on 30 April 1958 on Radio Luxembourg's Skiffle club programme, playing "Midnight Special"..When Storm's father died, he returned from Amsterdam to Liverpool to be with his mother. He developed a chest infection and could not sleep properly, so he took sleeping pills..When Storm's father died, he returned from Amsterdam to Liverpool to be with his mother at Stormsville, at 54 Broadgreen Road, Broadgreen, Liverpool. On 27 September 1972, Storm developed a chest infection and could not sleep properly, so he took sleeping pills. The next day Storm and his mother were both found dead. A post mortem determined that Storm had not taken enough pills to kill himself, but it was suspected that, after finding her son's body, his mother had...

The funeral for Storm and his mother was at Oakvale Congregational Church, Broadgreen, on 19 October 1972. Mourners sang Storm's favourite song, "You'll Never Walk Alone".. The two coffins were carried from the hearse to the cremation (at Anfield Crematorium) by former band members.. Storm's remains were scattered on section 23 at Anfield Crematorium's Gardens of Remembrance. When Starr was asked why he did not attend, he said, "I wasn't there when he was born either.". Although Starr had often offered to arrange for Storm to record whenever he wanted to, Storm was not interested in finding new or original material. His sister said: "He [Storm] was happy to be the King of Liverpool—he was never keen on touring, he didn't want to give up running for the Pembroke Harriers ... and he'd never miss a Liverpool football match!"..Billy Fury, whom Storm had met at the Wyvern Club auditions, later played the part of a fictional singer called Stormy Tempest (based on Storm), in the film That'll Be the Day (1973), which also starred Starr. In 1987, a musical was staged in Liverpool about Storm and the Hurricanes called A Need For Heroes...




Bernard William Jewry (27 September 1942 – 23 October 2014), known as Alvin Stardust, was an English pop singer and stage actor. Performing first as Shane Fenton, Stardust's stage and screen career spanned over a half-century. He is best known for singles released in the 1970s and 1980s, including "My Coo Ca Choo", the UK Singles Chart-topper "Jealous Mind", and "I Feel Like Buddy Holly"..Jewry disappeared from the spotlight for a decade after the break-up of the Fentones, working in music management and performing at small venues with his wife Iris Caldwell, the sister of Rory Storm. During the early 1970s, however, Jewry acquired a new persona, Alvin Stardust, cashing in on the glam rock bandwagon. His name was given to him by Michael Levy (later Lord Levy) who owned his record label, Magnet Records..Michael Abraham Levy, Baron Levy, (born 11 July 1944) is President of Community Service Volunteers (CSV) Jewish Care, Jewish Free School (JFS) and Jewish Lads' and Girls' Brigade (JLGB)..

Joel Graham Brinkley (July 22, 1952 – March 11, 2014) was an American syndicated columnist. He taught in the journalism program at Stanford University from 2006 until 2013, after a 23-year career with The New York Times. He won the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 1980 and was twice a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting.



The son of Ann Fischer and TV news anchor David Brinkley,[2] Joel Brinkley was born in Washington, DC in 1952. In 1975 he received a B.A. in English and journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was married and had two daughters. His brother, Alan Brinkley, is a historian and former Provost at Columbia University.

Brinkley's career began when he worked at the Associated Press in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 1975, Brinkley moved to the The Richmond News Leader in Virginia where he covered local and regional government. He also covered a series of stories about the Ku Klux Klan and its leader David Duke. He moved to the Louisville Courier Journal in 1978, where he served as a reporter, special-projects writer, editor and Washington correspondent. In 1979, he traveled to Cambodia to cover the fall of the Khmer Rouge for which he won the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 1980. In 1983, he took a position in the Washington bureau of the New York Times, where he worked until 2006 as a reporter, White House correspondent, foreign correspondent, editor and bureau chief.

"He was a director of the Fund for Investigative Journalism from 2001 to 2006."

In 2006, he joined Stanford University as the Hearst Visiting Professional in Residence in the Department of Communication. He taught there until December 2013, leaving to become an adviser for the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction.

Brinkley wrote a weekly op-ed column on foreign policy syndicated by Tribune Media Services. He received "more than a dozen national reporting and writing awards".

Brinkley died at a Washington, D.C. hospital on March 11, 2014, of pneumonia resulting from leukemia.[13] He was 61.

The ECSC was the first international organisation to be based on the principles of supranationalism, and would ultimately lead the way to the founding of the European Union..The Treaty would create a common market for coal and steel among its member states which served to neutralise competition between European nations over natural resources, particularly in the Ruhr or the Ruhr district, Ruhr region or Ruhr valley, is an urban area in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany..This agglomeration is the 5th-largest urban area in Europe after Istanbul, Moscow, London and Paris..Schuman proposed that "Franco-German production of coal and steel as a whole be placed under a common High Authority, within the framework of an organisation open to the participation of the other countries of Europe." Such an act was intended to help economic growth and cement peace between France and Germany, who were historic enemies.
