    Yemeni Jet Crash in Comoros

    150 on board, no further details at this time.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    It's a Yemenia A310, and it's in the ocean. No word on survivors.

    Reuters: Comoran police source says Airbus is believed to have went down in the sea. "We really have no sea rescue capabilities," he says.

    Vice President of Comoros tells CNN that boats have reached the wreckage and there are "no signs of survivors." Three bodies have been recovered. RIP. :(

    Also, number on board was raised to 158, 147 pax and 11 crew.

    I am trying to find the flight number. I also read that they found a young survivor. Also, it seems that the tail # is 535.

    Speedbird1, 535 is the Airbus CN, the tail number was 7O-ADJ.

    Here is a detailed history of the actual aircraft.

    http://www.airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-a310-535.htm

    Let me add my RIP to the victims and lets hope the young survivor, who is a 3 year old toddler survives their terrifying ordeal. Many of you may be to young to remember the NW MD80 crash on takeoff at DTW where the only survivor out of 150 something was a 4 year old child.

    Regards

    Sounds like they found the captain alive, also!

    Gotham, what is your source, I had read they found his body, along with 92 others so far. Can't find he is alive anywhere?

    Still a lot of conflicting and incomplete stories floating around...we'll see if it turns out to be true.

    I was shooting in LHR on June 28th and I got 7O-ADJ as it approached 27L. What a coincident.

    Reportedly weather was pretty bad at the time and I read that two years ago the European Union began investigating
    Yemeni Air due to safety concerns.

    Like Gotham Spotter said, Great/ Sad catch on one of its last flights. Perhaps this is the last known photo of the aircraft before the crash.

    My condolence go out the the family members of those lost.
