Train Wreck Of A Train That Carried Airplane Parts

A train wreck or train crash is a disaster that can involving one or more trains. The most common result of a train wreck is miscommunication, as when a moving train meets another train on the same track; or an accident, such as when a train wheel jumps off a track in a derailment; or when a boiler explosion occurs.

Train wrecks have often been widely covered in popular media and in folklore.

Because train wrecks usually cause huge property damage as well as injury or death, the intentional wrecking of a train in regular service is often treated as an extremely serious crime.

An example of this, in the U.S. state of California, the penalty for intentionally causing a non-fatal train wreck is life imprisonment with the possibility of parole. For a fatal train wreck, the possible sentences are either life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, or death.

The unusual harshness of California’s train wrecking statute has been expressly recognized by its appellate courts. The Supreme Court of California explained in 1972 that train wrecking is one of only eight crimes in the California Codes for which a capital sentence is authorized.

The California Court of Appeal pointed out the next year that (at that time) train wrecking was the only other crime besides aggravated kidnapping in the Penal Code for which the Legislature had expressly established the punishment of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

Pictures Of Plane That Crashed Into Ferris Wheel

A Ferris wheel (also known as an observation wheel or big wheel) is a non building structure consisting of a rotating upright wheel with passenger cars (sometimes referred to as gondolas or capsules) attached to the rim in such a way that as the wheel turns, the cars are kept upright, usually by gravity.
Some of the largest and most modern Ferris wheels have cars mounted on the outside of the rim, and electric motors to independently rotate each car to keep it upright. These wheels are sometimes referred to as observation wheels, and their cars referred to as capsules, however these alternative names are also sometimes used for wheels with conventional gravity-oriented cars.
The original Ferris Wheel was designed and constructed by George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr. as a landmark for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The term Ferris wheel later came to be used generically for all such structures.
Since the original 1893 Chicago Ferris Wheel, there have been eight subsequent world’s tallest-ever Ferris wheels. The current record holder is the 165-metre (541 ft) Singapore Flyer, which opened to the public in March 2008.
“Pleasure wheels”, whose passengers rode in chairs suspended from large wooden rings turned by strong men, may have originated in 17th century Bulgaria.
