Re: Tagesschau (Germany)Edit

I see what you mean, so the recorded intro is spoken by Jens Riewa, who is a newsreader for Tagesschau. Would the sentence be better as: "...followed by a recorded announcement by newsreader Jens Riewa, "Hier ist..."? -- [[ axg ◉ talk ]] 10:16, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Well,
"...followed by a recorded announcement usually spoken by the chief newsreader Jan Hofer, "Hier ist..." Not impossible that sometimes they use another speaker, even Dagmar Berghoff & Eva Herman been the "announcer" way back in their active years. If I not mistaken I also heard out tagesschau beauty Judith Rakers doing the announcement. Jens Riewa done it mostlikely too, although I can't remember right now.

Re: Caribbean Airlines, overshot vs overrun.Edit

Thanks for your observation, regarding the Caribbean Airlines accident in Guyana. As an air traffic controller (12 years with over 9000 hours and counting) I am in the business of knowing correct aviation terminology. Newspapers and television stations, unfortunately, are not. They routinely misspell, misquote, and misrepresent the truth not because they are necessarily being mischievous, but because they are ignorant. A runway overshoot occurs when the aircraft does not touch the runway at all and ends up on the far side of that runway. An overrun occurs when the aircraft lands but fails to stop in time and ends up off the far side of that runway. You will find overshoot used a lot because it sounds fancy. It's the same way that people who don't know will say that a Boeing 738 (like the one in this particular crash) has a "jet engine". It does not. It has a "turbofan" engine. They are similar, but VASTLY different. Those of us who know better have a duty to inform those who do not of their error. Tschuss!
