Air Berlin pilots suspended after saying 'dignified goodbye' with fly-by stunt at Düsseldorf Airport
The pilots of an Air Berlin flight that performed a fly-past during the insolvent carrier's last long-haul flight to its hub in Düsseldorf have been suspended, the airline said on Wednesday. When coming into land from Miami on Monday morning, the A330 jet flew low across the runway, then pulled up and banked sharply to the left before landing on its second approach. Pilots are trained in such "go-around" procedures for aborted landings, but the manoeuvre was unusual and the German aviation authorities are investigating. "In aviation, safety always comes first. We are taking the incident very seriously," an Air Berlin spokesman said. The Air Berlin pilot had requested permission from the tower to make a left turn should a go-around be necessary. "We wanted to make a mark, a dignified and emotional goodbye," the Air Berlin pilot was quoted as saying by German broadcaster ZDF. His identity was not given. Another pilot for a different carrier told Reuters that a go-around should be performed only for operational or safety reasons. "Electing to do one if it is known not to be required adds an unnecessary risk," he said. Several videos of the incident can be viewed online. In one, control tower staff can be heard exclaiming as the plane flies past, with one person saying: "We are all in awe." The Air Berlin spokesman said the videos raised questions that had to be answered as part of the investigation. Air Berlin filed for insolvency on August 15 and Lufthansa has signed a deal to buy large parts of its operations. The airline will fly its final short-haul flights under the Air Berlin brand at the end of this month.

CIA chief remains coy about of Kim Jong-un 'vanishing' - but admits spy agency will be 'more vicious'
The US Central Intelligence Agency thinks that North Korea?s Kim Jong-un is a rational actor who is focused on staying in power and "waking up in his own bed" each day. But if Mr Kim should suddenly not show up for work, well, don?t ask US spy chief Mike Pompeo about it. "With respect to, if Kim Jong-un should vanish, given the history of the CIA, I?m just not going to talk about it," the CIA director said on Thursday, when asked what would happen if Kim suddenly died. "Someone might think there was a coincidence. ?You know, there was an accident.? It?s just not fruitful," he said to laughs from a Washington audience full of national security officials. The US agency has a dark history of involvement in plots to overthrow or eliminate leaders in countries like Iran, Cuba, Congo, Vietnam and Chile.

South Korea's intelligence agency said earlier this year that Mr Kim was "extremely nervous" about plots to assassinate him and uses a number of ruses to foil would-be assailants. Mr Pompeo, speaking to a forum held by the Foundation for Defence of Democracies, stressed that US policy was to "diplomatically and economically challenge the North Korean regime" to convince Mr Kim to pull back on his emerging nuclear threat to the United States. North Korea | Kim Jong-un?s fiery relationship with the US "Kim Jong-un?s mission is just to stay in power," he said. But Mr Pompeo, who became director of the CIA in January, added he was revitalising the agency?s field missions. "We are going to become a much more vicious agency," he said.
