QPR – without a win or even a goal in their previous three matches – went behind to Theo Robinson’s goal three minutes before the break.Niko Kranjcar had their best chance during a first half in which they lost Junior Hoilett to injury.Hoilett limped off in the 12th minute at Loftus Road, where Doncaster belied their lowly position – and the wet and windy conditions – by causing problems with their slick passing and movement.Charlie Austin, back in the Rangers side following a hamstring problem, had a header from Joey Barton’s right-wing cross well saved by goalkeeper Ross Turnbull.And when Danny Simpson’s low cross fell to Kranjcar, the Croatian shot wide of the target.Rovers have been a threat on the counter attack, with Mark Duffy just failing to connect with Robinson’s cross and Richie Wellens shooting narrowly wide after jinking his way into the box.The visitors’ deserved breakthrough came when Yossi Benayoun, making his home debut, was robbed by Federico Macheda, who sent Robinson through for the striker to fire into the bottom corner.QPR: Green; Simpson, Onuoha, Dunne, Assou-Ekotto, Barton, Kranjcar, Hoilett (Phillips 12), O’Neil, Benayoun, Austin.Subs: Murphy; Traore, Hill, Johnson, Carroll, Henry.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

The final investigation report of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation on a bird hit suffered by a Delhi-Mumbai GoAir flight on June 21, 2017, has revealed that the pilots turned off the wrong engine and flew the plane on the engine that had ingested the bird. The report, made public on Tuesday, stated that after about three minutes the crew realised the mistake and tried to restart the other engine mid-air. They then declared an emergency and returned to Delhi, managing to land on a single engine on the second attempt. There were 156 passengers on board at the time of the incident. “The incident was caused by incorrect identification of engine affected with high vibration followed by non-adherence to recommended procedures, lack of situational awareness, poor Cockpit Resource Management and poor handling of aircraft during emergency subsequent to bird strike,” the report prepared by the office of Director of Air Safety (Western Region) said. Mid-air scareAccording to the findings, during take-off roll at around 115 knots, the aircraft — an A320 — encountered a bird strike on engine number 2. “Both crew noticed abnormal sound and vibrations but the pilot in command decided to continue the take-off probably wanting to investigate the problem after getting airborne. After the take-off, the situation was incorrectly assessed and engine number 1 (unaffected engine) was shut down. The aircraft was climbing with the single engine — engine 2 (affected engine), for over three minutes,” the report said. It pinned the blame of the “incorrect assessment” on the First Officer. As the aircraft stopped climbing at around 3,330 feet altitude, the crew realised their mistake and attempted to start engine number 1 but encountered start valve fault. The investigation also revealed that another pilot flying as Staff On Duty entered the cockpit after pressing the cockpit buzzer several times. The pilot in command submitted that he allowed the SOD inside the cockpit because the buzzer was distracting. “The SOD was heard asking information on the problem to cockpit crew while they were performing their duties in-flight and after landing as well,” the report said. As per the pilot in command, there was no information by Air Traffic Control about bird activity but the Air Traffic Information Services reported bird activity in its broadcast. The report also mentioned that after the incident, while taxiing to the allocated stand for parking, the crew took a wrong turn and parked the aircraft in an incorrect orientation.
The Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation (KSAC) will continue its drive to rid the Corporate Area of illegal billboards and signs that have been erected without the Corporation’s approval.This was stated by Mayor of Kingston, Senator Angela Brown Burke, during Tuesday’s (July 9) monthly meeting of the KSAC, at its Church Street chambers in downtown Kingston.She noted that there are several cases that are long outstanding “and where we have several contacts without any seeming change in the status of these signs.”“In short order, we will move to the next phase of our programme, which entails the removal of signs for which persons have been given adequate notice and have failed to comply with the requirements,” she said, and encouraged persons to regularise their signs and billboards to avoid the penalties.The Mayor informed that internally, the Corporation continues to make changes to ensure that applications are completed within the shortest possible time. “At the last sitting of our Building and Town Planning Committee, decisions were made on 34 applications,” she said.She noted that the Corporation will continue to ensure that signs and billboards are sited in appropriate areas, are properly installed, do not pose a threat to the security of motorists and pedestrians alike, and do not detract from the aesthetics of the environs.“The additional revenue generated puts the KSAC in a better position to finance the many services we are called upon to provide, but most importantly we have to remain cognisant of our responsibilities to ensure that construction is done in accordance with industry standards, to prevent injuries to the public,” she said.In February this year, the KSAC commenced its drive to remove illegal billboards and signs in the city.Contact: Chris Patterson
