Abadam

Abadam is a Local Government Area of Borno State, Nigeria, on the western coast of Lake Chad. Its headquarters are in the town of Malumfatori, it has a population of 100,180 at the 2006 census. The postal code of the area is 602, it is one of the sixteen LGAs that constitute the Borno Emirate, a traditional state located in Borno State, Nigeria. In October 2014, Boko Haram fighters took over Abadam town, with at least 40 deaths, but fled after an attack by Multinational Joint Task Force troops. Local residents, some of whom had fled to Niger border areas, were urged to return. On 2 February 2015, the Nigerian Army said it had recaptured Abadam from Boko Haram, along with the nearby towns of Gamboru, Mallam Fatori, Marte, following joint military operations by Nigerian and Cameroonian forces, civilian forces, three days of Chadian airstrikes. A bomb dropped by an air strike and smashed the midst of a mourning ceremony, which injured 27 peoples and killed 37 persons. Borno State senator Baba Kak Garbai however stated in February 2016 that the group still controlled Abadam.

Major General Lucky Irabor stated in August 2016 that Abadam was under control of the militants

AMD Zodiac

The Zodiac is a family of Canadian all-metal, two-seat, fixed landing gear airplanes that first flew in 1984. The aircraft have been produced as kits and completed aircraft by Zenair in Canada and Zenith Aircraft Company in the USA; the latest models in the Zodiac family are the ready-to-fly AMD Zodiac LS and LSi produced by Aircraft Manufacturing and Design. The design has a single-piece bubble canopy; the Zodiac airplane was developed by Avions Pierre Robin engineer Chris Heintz in the early 1970s. The Zenair CH 200 kit plane was developed as a Homebuilt aircraft, meaning that consumers can purchase the plane as components to assemble it themselves. Variants of the Zodiac have since been manufactured in Canada, United States and South America as a factory-assembled, ready-to-fly aircraft. Heintz drafted the regulations for light-sport aircraft in Canada around the time he designed the Zodiac, he played an important role in drafting the current light-sport aircraft rules for the United States.

Zenith Aircraft Company still produces kits and Quick-build kits for the Zodiac kit for the homebuilt-market. The company provides engine mounts and instructions for mounting the Stratus EA 81 engine in the CH 601 series. Chevrolet Corvair engines have been employed. There are over 1000 Zodiac aircraft flying worldwide. In the Netherlands, the Dutch government grounded the 12 Dutch-registered CH 601 XLs on 24 October 2008; the planes were banned from flying pending an investigation into their structural strength, following the crash of a European variant of the design that killed two people. According to the Dutch government, since 2005 "at least seven accidents with Zenith CH601 XL's have happened in which one or both wings have failed". Zenair Europe investigated these accidents, concluded that none are due to a design defect and, after a first-hand review of the wreckage rejected suggestions that the aircraft in the Dutch accident experienced a structural failure. On 14 April 2009, the NTSB wrote an urgent letter to the FAA recommending that they ground all Zodiac CH 601 XLs, saying "It appears that aerodynamic flutter is the source of four of the U.

S. accidents and of at least two foreign accidents". The NTSB wrote to ASTM International, the body responsible for developing standards for light sport aircraft, recommending that those standards be changed in light of the investigation; the NTSB says that the type has been involved "in six in-flight structural breakups since 2006". Zenith Aircraft disputed the NTSB's conclusions and stated in a response on their website that "e continue to believe wing flutter will not occur if the control cables are adjusted properly." They cited Zenair Europe's disagreement with the Dutch government's conclusion that that accident was caused by flutter. AMD issued a safety alert in October 2008 mandating inspections of aileron control cable tensions; the company hired an independent consultant, Dr. Uwe Weltin, an internationally recognized flutter and vibrations specialist and head of the Institut für Zuverlaessigkeitstechnik at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg who concluded that when the CH 601 XL is built and maintained to Zenair specifications, there is "no tendency to flutter or divergence found within the flight envelope of the CH 601 XL".

The company claimed that the report clears the Zodiac design of flutter-related concerns as long as CH 601 XL is built and maintained to Zenair specifications. In reacting to the NTSB recommendations the FAA Administrator Randy Babbit declined to ground the aircraft and in a 13 July 2009 letter, stated "Data indicates the CH-601XL has a safety record similar to other S-LSA and appears capable of safe flight and operations if maintained according to the manufacturer's recommendations."On 6 November 2009 an amateur-built CH-601XL broke up in flight over Arkansas, resulting in the death of the pilot. Preliminary investigation of the accident revealed a failure mode similar to that seen in the earlier crashes, as both wings separated in flight; this brought the number of crashes to seven and deaths to 11. The FAA issued a Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin on 7 November 2009 and recommended that the aircraft not be flown until modifications detailed in an AMD Safety Alert are carried out.

AMD and Zenith Aircraft issued documents the same day, mandating that the S-LSA version not be flown until the modifications were completed and recommended all aircraft be modified. The modifications included strengthening of the main and rear wing spar carrythroughs and the addition of aileron balance weights; the Experimental Aircraft Association recommended grounding all affected aircraft until modifications are complete. In a statement issued by Zenith Aircraft, the designer, Chris Heintz in response to the question "Why are you recommending this Upgrade Package? What has prompted this "180- degree" shift, from insisting that the CH 601 XL design was fine "as is", to now mandating a list of upgrades requiring more than a dozen modifications?" Stated: The past two years have been challenging for the CH 601 XL community around the world. As we all know, a number of accidents have occurred over the span of a few years for which no common cause has been determined; this lack of a "smoking gun" has caused all kinds of conjectures and wild guesses as to probable cause, each time a new "theory" or "solution" is proposed, I and numerous engineers spend long hours trying to validate or rebuke the latest round of speculation.

To this date, after thousands of man-hours of investigations, multiple design reviews and an unheard-of amount of testing, the accidents in question still do not share a common cause. In offering this "Upgrade Package" I have had to set aside my own professional opinion (that the des

La Tour-d'Aigues

La Tour-d'Aigues is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. The town is located at the south of the Grand Luberon, 5 km away from Pertuis, it is the capital town of the Pays d'Aigues. La Tour d'Aigues is under the influence of the mediterranean climate characterised by hot and dry summers and mild winters; the town belonged to the counts of Forcalquier until the end of the 12th century, when it passed to the Sabran family through marriage, to the Agoults. La Tour d'Aigues was destroyed in 1390 when facing the assault of Raymond VIII de Turenne. In addition to this, epidemics emptied the town of its population; this crisis allowed Fouquet d'Agoult to acquire new territories: le Tourel, la Bastidonne, Saint-Martin-de-la-Brasque and Cabrière d'Aigues. The Templars had an establishment at La Tour d'Aigues. Raymond d'Agoult, Fouquet d'Agoult's son, died without an heir in 1505, his sister Jeanne, wife of Antoine de Bolliers, viscount of Reillane, inherited.

They brought farmers from their lands in Piémont to enrich the land. The town passed on to the d'Agoult de Sault in 1584, it belonged to the Lesdiguières, to a certain Villeroy in 1617, to the Brunys in 1719 who were unpopular rich merchants from Marseille. La Tour d'Aigues faced a devastating plague in 1630 and 1631; when the Villeroys went bankrupt, they were forced to sell the Renaissance castle built by Nicolas de Bolliers in 1550 to Jean-Baptiste Bruny. His son, Jérôme Bruny, turned the castle into a museum. Parc naturel régional du Luberon The Renaissance castle renovated in the 16th and 17th century, it burnt down before the French Revolution. Catherine de Médicis is said to have visited it in 1579; the Eglise Notre-Dame de Romégas. The Maison d'Estienne du Bourguet built from 1658 to 1671 with 17th-century murals; the Museum of earthenware in the cellars of the castle.
