Pilot error, ejection seat malfunction implicated in June F-16 crash

Business
Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Pilot error and a series of ejection seat malfunctions led to the death of an F-16CM pilot at Shaw Air Force Base In June, according to an accident report released this week by Air Combat Command. According to the report, 1st Lt. David Schmitz's ejection seat malfunctioned and his parachute never deployed, causing his death after his aircraft struck a localizer antenna array while landing the plane. Advertisement Schmitz, 32, died instantly on impacting the ground, the report said. He was conducting a nighttime mission qualification training flight that would include his first ever attempts at air-to-air refueling -- but the air-to-air refueling attempt failed, cutting the mission short. As Schmitz returned to Shaw AFB, the collision with the antenna array damaged the le...
NHS COVID app failed to record potential exposures due to error

NHS COVID app failed to record potential exposures due to error

Technology
An error with the NHS COVID app has left potentially thousands of people unaware that they were exposed to the coronavirus and needed to self-isolate.More than 19 million people have downloaded the English contact-tracing app since 24 September, but it has had the wrong settings to record whether these people were close enough to each other to transmit the coronavirus. The revelation comes as Michael Gove told Sophy Ridge on Sunday that England's month-long lockdown could be extended beyond 2 December. "Shockingly low" numbers of users have been sent warnings about potential exposures due to the app having the wrong risk threshold set for recording contacts between people, as The Sunday Times first reported.While the technology should have been recognising people as having been in clos...

Health
Nearly 16,000 cases of coronavirus were not entered into the national computer system used for official figures because of a technical glitch, Public Health England says.Some of the unreported cases were added to Saturday's figure of 12,872 new cases and Sunday's figure of 22,961.It said all of the cases "received their Covid-19 test result as normal".But BBC Health Editor Hugh Pym said it meant the contacts of those who tested positive had not been approached.Public Health England said the cases were missed off daily reports between 25 September and 2 October. But it added the IT problem had been resolved and all cases had been handed to the test and trace system.Labour's shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth said: "This is shambolic and people acros...
