Welcome to the New Year! I hope everyone had a safe holiday weekend and are now ready to have a safe, healthy and prosperous 2024.

Here are the stories to start the new year, of note, the breaking news from Tokyo, Japan of the collision of a JAL Airbus A350-941 with a Japan Coast Guard DHC-8-315Q MPA aircraft (JA722A) on the runway at Tokyo-Haneda Airport. Initial reports are that all 367 pax and 12 crew on board the Airbus evacuated safely but that 5 crew on board the DHC-8 are unaccounted for.

Be safe out there!
