LOS ANGELES nike air max 2017 grise femme soldes , March 6 (Xinhua) -- Renowned U.S. actor Harrison Ford survived a close-to-death crash-landing of his WWII-era single-engine plane near Los Angeles in California on Thursday.

The 72-year-old adventurer used his abundant piloting experience to successfully grounded the aircraft on a golf course in southern California, while the plane lost power shortly after takeoff. He suffered serious injuries during the hard landing, but there is no life risk.

Ford's son, Ben Ford, said on Twitter that his father was "OK." "Battered, but OK! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man."

Ford took off from Santa Monica Municipal Airport at around 2:00 p.m. (2200 GMT) nike air max 2017 grise femme , then experienced engine trouble and was circling back to the airport when he crash-landed on the golf course, local media reported.

The single-engine plane, identified by the National Transportation Safety Board as a Ryan Aeronautical ST3KR, went down at about 2:25 p.m. (2225 GMT), said Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) spokesman Erik Scott.

Scott said there was only one person aboard the plane. LAFD Assistant Chief Patrick Butler said the pilot was outside the plane when rescuers arrived at the scene.

Ford is best known for playing Han Solo in "Star Wars" movies and his roles as Indiana Jones in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and its sequels.

He got his pilot's license in the late 1980s and has served as a spokesman for various airline associations. He is a longtime aviation enthusiast and has even piloted helicopters in search-and-rescue operations.

NEW YORK, March 6 (Xinhua) -- U.S. stocks fell sharply Friday nike air max 2017 grise soldes , with the three major indices all losing more than 1 percent, as investors worried that a strong jobs report indicated the rate hike could come sooner rather than later.

RIYADH, Jan. 21 (Xinhua) -- Saudi police have raided the hiding place of terrorists in Jeddah and two of them died when they below themselves up with explosive belts, Sabq online local news reported on Saturday.

Before the explosive, both the police and wanted suspects exchange gun shooting after security personnel asked the terrorists to hand themselves.

MELBOURNE, March 6 (Xinhua) -- Australian scientists have developed a talking drone that can converse with air traffic controllers as a pilot would, the lead researcher told Xinhua on Friday.

Dr Reece Clothier, leader of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems team at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) nike air max 2017 flyknit soldes , said it was essential drones that were capable of flying safely in civil airspace.

Drones are the fastest growing sector of the aviation industry, with worldwide sales expected to top 6 billion U.S. dollars this year.

He said the communication system his team has designed allowed air traffic controllers to verbally interact with drones which allowed for integration into the current traffic management system. "They sound exactly like a normal pilot," Clothier told Xinhua on Friday. "There will be absolutely no change at all from the air- traffic controller's perspective." "The objective is to make unmanned aircraft appear and interact as seamlessly as possible in the air traffic management system."

On board the unmanned aircraft, radio transmissions are converted into digital messages that the software developed by Clothier's team can interpret. And then, the air traffic controllers can decide on an appropriate instruction or reply.

Clothier said the drones would be able to monitor air traffic control chatter and listen out for their call sign, as pilots currently do.

The next step is imitating the intelligent decision making that pilots undertake in seconds nike air max 2017 femme soldes , such as offering alternatives to air traffic control's instructions rather than blindly following.

"We've still got a little way to go. At the moment, the decision making c.
