  • Senior British Pilot 'Solves' Mystery Of MH370 And Pinpoints Where Boeing 777 Came To Rest

    A senior British pilot believes he has solved the mystery of what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Boeing 777 captain Simon Hardy also believes he knows where the doomed aircraft came to rest, following a six month examination of flight data. Using a unique mathematical technique, Hardy pinpoints the location of the aircraft to 100 nautical miles away from where the Australian Transport Safety Board (ATSB) is currently carrying out it search, the Sunday Times reports. Hardy also told the newspaper he believes pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah performed a final “emotional” fly-past of Penang island, before landing the plane on water, where it sank intact.

    A celebrity neighbour row has taken a new twist after Jimmy Page hired architects and engineers to say how Robbie Williams' basement pool could destroy his 'irreplaceable' home. Led Zeppelin veteran Mr Page, 71, has sounded the fears for his Grade I listed house in Holland Park, West London - a stone's throw from the Take That star Mr Williams' £17.5million mansion. The pop star, who bought Michael Winner's former 46-room home in 2013, first sparked Mr Page's ire last month with plans for an extension including a lift and recording studio.

  • US fears that Britain's defence cuts will diminish Army on world stage - Telegraph

    His comments, moreover, came after President Barack Obama had taken issue with David Cameron when he visited the White House in January. For there are growing fears that cuts will jeopardise a central tenet of the post-Second World War transatlantic alliance – namely, that Britain can be counted upon to provide military hardware to US-led campaigns in defence of Western interests. Whether it is dealing with Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, or preventing Afghanistan from becoming a haven for Islamist terror groups, it has been a long-standing assumption of US military planning that Britain would deploy a combat force in excess of 10,000 men, as well as the fighter aircraft and naval vessels. During the 1991 Gulf War, for example, the famed 7th Armoured Brigade, or Desert Rats, took the lead role in the Army’s ground operations, which saw more than 50,000 British soldiers deployed to the region during the six-month campaign. q

  • Russians to fight North Sea oilfield ban - Telegraph

    A group of billionaire Russian investors with links to Vladimir Putin plans to challenge a UK decision to block their attempt to seize control of a clutch of North Sea oilfields worth billions. LetterOne – a Russian investment fund controlled by Mikhail Fridman – said yesterday that it would contest any move by the energy secretary, Ed Davey, to block its attempt to buy the North Sea assets from Germany’s RWE. Mr Fridman would have gained control of the fields as part of a €5bn (£3.6bn) deal to buy the German energy giants oil and gas division. However, the decision by Mr Davey comes after President Putin again threatened to cut off gas supplies to Europe in retaliation for his ongoing dispute with the West over eastern Ukraine. q
