Two sunbathers killed as light plane lands on beach

Two sunbathers

Terrified sunbathers ran into the sea as a plane hurtled towards them on a packed Portuguese beach, killing a man and an eight-year-old girl.
The victims, who were sunbathing at the time, died as the light aircraft made an emergency landing at the Sao Joao beach on Portugal’s Costa de Caparica coastline, near the city of Setubal.

The victims are understood to be aged 50 and eight and police are now questioning the two pilots aboard the plane.

Hundreds of people were on the beach at Caparica, 30 kilometers (20 miles) south of Lisbon, and bystanders reportedly ran into the sea to avoid the plane.
Police chiefs said the two people on board the plane had survived and were being questioned.
Witnesses told local television channels the girl who was killed was with her parents at the time, who were unhurt. They claim the plane ‘passed over the dead man’s legs as he sunbathed on a towel’.

Police have ruled out witness reports several other people had been injured.
Maritime Police Chief Pedro Coelho Dias, confirming the two deaths, said: ‘The victims are a man and an eight-year-old girl.
‘They were hit by the plane and died at the scene.’
The nationalities of the victims is not yet known and is not clear if they were related.

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air has introduced its latest business class offering, the Prestige Suites 2.0, set to make its debut aboard the airline’s new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner fleet.

This new product marks a significant upgrade from the previous Collins Apex forward-facing staggered seats, known as Prestige Suites. The Prestige Suites 2.0 is designed in a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, ensuring each passenger direct aisle access and ample privacy.

The seats offer 46 inches of pitch, 21 inches of width, and can be transformed into a flat bed measuring between 78.2 and 79.2 inches. A standout feature of these seats is the inclusion of privacy doors that stand 52 inches high, offering a more secluded experience even when positioned closer to the aisle.

Tech-savvy travelers will appreciate the suite’s cutting-edge features, which include a 23.8-inch ultra-high-definition entertainment monitor, 60W USB-C charging, AC power outlets, and wireless charging capabilities.

Moreover, Korean Air’s Boeing 787-10s will be the first in the fleet to offer Wi-Fi, enhancing connectivity for passengers. The new business class seats come with a range of amenities aimed at maximizing comfort and convenience. These include a storage cubby, a handheld remote, USB-C charging ports, and universal outlets.

The wireless charging pad is a notable highlight, reflecting the suite’s advanced technological integration. The layout of the Prestige Suites 2.0 comprises 10 rows of seats in a 1-2-1 arrangement, specifically rows 7-16 in the business class cabin. The cabin is flanked by lavatories and galleys at both the front and the rear, ensuring easy access for all passengers.

A striking departure from Korean Air’s traditional design, the new seats feature a bold brown color palette. This is a significant change from the airline’s iconic Morning Calm blue and bright white interiors.

The new design incorporates semi-matte deep brown side consoles with metallic tops, brushed coppery-almond cabinet doors, and textured tan interior shrouds, giving the cabin a modern and sophisticated look.
