China races to tackle expanding oil spill after tanker sinksChinese ships scrambled Monday to clean up a massive and expanding oil spill after an Iranian tanker sank off China, raising fears of devastating damage to marine life.

China races to prevent environmental disaster from stricken tanker

China races to prevent environmental disaster from stricken tankerChina raced to contain oil leaking from an Iranian tanker stricken off its eastern coast Tuesday amid warnings the burning ship could spark an environmental disaster. The Sanchi was carrying 136,000 tonnes of light crude oil when it collided with a cargo ship on Saturday and erupted into flames 160 nautical miles east of Shanghai. If all the cargo from the Panamanian-flagged 274-metre (899-foot) tanker spills, it would be the biggest oil slick from a ship in decades and could kill marine life across a vast area, analysts have said.

Delta flight races into path of Hurricane Irma before executing quick escape from Puerto Rico

Delta flight races into path of Hurricane Irma before executing quick escape from Puerto RicoA Delta flight raced against Hurricane Irma on Wednesday, landing in Puerto Rico and taking off again within an hour just as the category 5 storm was bearing down on the island. FlightAware data showed that the Boeing 737 left New York at 8.12am and arrived in San Juan at 12.01pm, just as Irma was set to make landfall. Less than an hour later, it took off  from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in decidedly blustery conditions. Pictures posted on social media showed the flight heading straight into the path of the hurricane, which had already left a trail of devastation across the Caribbean. "Where others have turned back, Delta #DL431 presses on," tweeted the Flightradar24, which tracks air traffic in real time. Jason Rabinowitz, an aviation enthusiast,  shared photos of the flight data in real time as the fight landed, prepared for its next flight and took off again. Takeoff! An absolutely amazing job here by @Delta forecasters, dispatchers, flight and ground crews. Full flight back up to JFK.#Irmapic.twitter.com/sSulqA8g7t— Jason Rabinowitz (@AirlineFlyer) September 6, 2017 He said the total time on the ground for the flight was 52 minutes, including the taxi-in and taxi-out. "Now DL302 has to climb out of SJU, and they're doing so between the outer band of #Irma and the core of the storn. Amazing stuff," he tweeted.

"They took a hard look at the weather data and the track of the storm and worked with the flight crew and dispatcher to agree it was safe to operate the flight," he said, according to the Washington Post.  Hurricane Irma makes landfall in the Caribbean, in pictures The flight was the last one to land and take off from the airport before it stopped operations.
