Mengapa Kim Jong Un ‘Lebih Senang’ Naik Kereta Ketimbang Pesawat? Ini Dia Spekulasi yang…

first_imgSumber: The National Kedatangan Supreme Leader Korea Utara, Kim Jong Un ke Vietnam pada Selasa (26/2/2019) kemarin masih hangat untuk diperbincangkan. Tidak melulu membahas tentang isi pertemuannya dengan pimpinan Negara Adikuasa, Donald Trump, namun satu poin yang tidak boleh luput dari perhatian adalah cara Kim Jong Un menyambangi Vietnam, yaitu dengan menggunakan kereta api. Tentu sebagaian dari Anda akan bertanya-tanya, “mengapa pimpinan negara seperti Kim Jong Un lebih memilih untuk naik kereta ketimbang pesawat yang jelas lebih efisien dari segi waktu?”Baca Juga: Setelah Menempuh Jarak 4023 Km, Kereta Kim Jong Un Tiba di Vietnam Selasa PagiSebagaimana yang diketahui bersama, Kim Jong Un menghabiskan waktu sekira 65 jam untuk mengular dari Pyongyang menuju Vietnam – perjalanan yang jelas tidaklah sebentar. Anak dari Kim Jong Il ini lebih memilih untuk ‘berlindung’ di balik kereta berlapis bajanya ini untuk menembus jarak sekira 4023 km ketimbang harus mengudara yang notabene hanya memakan waktu hitungan jam saja. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Sebenarnya ada sejumlah spekulasi yang beredar di masyarakat tentang pertanyaan ini. Namun satu yang paing santer diberitakan adalah Kim Jong Un takut akan ketinggian, sehingga dirinya lebih memilih untuk menggunakan kereta dalam lawatannya menuju negara lain. Jika ditelisik lebih dalam lagi, ternyata tidak hanya Kim Jong Un saja yang gemar naik kereta api, pun dengan mendiang ayahnya, Kim Jong Il dan mendiang kakeknya, Kim Il Sung.KabarPenumpang.com mengutip dari laman time.com, melakukan lawatan ke negara lain dengan menggunakan kereta api memang sudah seperti tradisi bagi keluarga Kim Jong Un. Seperti yang sudah disinggung di atas, mulai dari mendiang kakeknya hingga mendiang ayahnya, semuanya gemar naik kereta api ketimbang pesawat. Bahkan, ketiganya diisukan takut untuk naik pesawat terbang.Terkecuali Kim Jong Un, isu ini semakin dikuatkan dengan Kim Jong Il dan Kim Il Sung pernah menyaksikan secara langsung ledakan pesawat ketika tengah melakukan test flight di tahun 1982 – dan penerbangan Kim Il Sung terakhir terjadi pada 1986, dimana kala itu ia menyambangi Rusia. Sejak saat itu, keluarga para Supreme Leader ini tidak ada lagi yang pernah mengudara.Kendati sesekali Kim Jong Un lebih memilih untuk naik pesawat, namun ia lebih sering menggunakan kereta dengan dalih mempertahankan tradisi keluarga.Tidak hanya itu, kereta yang digunakan Kim Jong Un dalam lawatannya menuju Vietnam ini juga tidak sembarangan kereta. 21 rangkaian gerbong yang berlapiskan baja ini dikabarkan memiliki puluhan sofa empuk dan ruang konferensi di dalamnya. Pun dengan penjagaan super ketat guna mengawal sang diktator ini – satu rangkaian berada di depan kereta utama untuk memastikan keamanan jalur, sedangkan satu rangkaian lagi berada di belakangnya untuk mengangkut personel keamanan dan personel pendukung.Baca Juga: Lakukan Perjalanan ke Beijing, Beginilah Kelebihan dari Kereta yang Bawa Kim Jong-unTerlepas dari asumsi itu semua, para analis menyebutkan bahwa kunjungan Kim Jong Un ke Vietnam minggu ini merupakan salah satu ajang bagi Korea Utara untuk membuktikan diri bahwa negara beraliran komunis tersebut bisa berdikari tanpa bantuan negara manapun – termasuk Cina.Pada kunjungannya ke Singapura guna bertemu Presiden Donald Trump pada bulan Juni kemarin, Kim Jong Un meminjam Boeing 747 milik Air China, lantaran pesawat Ilyushin Il-62 miliknya dinyatakan sudah tidak aman untuk mengudara – entah tidak aman dari masalah performa atau ada ancaman dari negara lain.Nah, dalam kunjungannya yang sekarang, Korea Utara melalui Kim Jong Un seolah ingin menunjukkan bahwa negara tersebut bisa melepaskan ketergantungan terhadap Cina yang selama ini berada di belakangnya untuk urusan supply dalam situasi apapun.last_img read more

Boeing 767, Pesawat Widebody dengan Lebar ‘Terkecil’ di Dunia

first_imgDilansir alternativeairlines.com, widebody atau pesawat berbadan lebar adalah pesawat yang mampu mengangkut penumpang dalam jumlah besar. Umumnya, pesawat berbadan lebar digunakan untuk rute-rute jarak jauh ataupun menengah, baik penumpang maupun kargo, sekalipun ada juga maskapai yang menggunakan widebody untuk jarak pendek, salah satunya Emirates yang mengoperasikan rute terpendek A380 di dunia.Dari segi jumlah penumpang, umumnya widebody mengangkut antara 200-850 penumpang dengan konfigurasi tiga kelas ataupun full ekonomi. Untuk konfigurasi full ekonomi, formasinya berbeda-beda, bergantung pada kebijakan masing-masing, entah 2-3 -2, 3-3-3, atau 3-4-3.Pesawat widebody juga diartikan sebagai pesawat dengan dua lorong, sekalipun hanya memiliki dua mesin, yang mematahkan pendapat dimana widebody diartikan sebagai pesawat dengan empat mesin. Sedangkan dua ataupun satu tingkat, hal itu tidak menjadi acuan sebuah pesawat disebut widebody. Lagi pula, pesawat widebody dua tingkat jumlahnya tak banyak.Selain Airbus dan Boeing, di dunia, ada begitu banyak pabrikan yang memproduksi pesawat widebody, mulai dari Lockheed, Ilyushin, McDonnell Douglas, dan CRAIC, perusahaan patungan antara COMAC Cina dan Rusia United Aircraft Corporation.Rata-rata dari pabrikan di atas, widebody yang diproduksi memiliki lebar pesawat sekitar 5 m, seperti Boeing 777X seluas 5.94 m, Airbus A350 5.61 m, Lockheed L-1011 5,77 meter, Ilyushin IL-96 5,70 meter, McDonnell Douglas DC-10 5.69 meter, dan CRAIC CR929 -yang diperkirakan bakal terbang pada 2023- seluas 5,61 meter.Baca juga: Stratolaunch, Pesawat dengan Sayap Terlebar di Dunia Sukses Terbang PerdanaDi luar itu, Airbus dan Boeing punya pesawat jumbo dengan lebar lebih dari enam meter. Pesawat komersial terbesar di dunia buatan Airbus, A380 sejauh ini menjadi pesawat widebody dengan lebar terbesar mencapai 6,54 meter. Adapun Queen of the Skies Boeing 747 tak terpaut jauh, dengan luas mencapai 6,10 meter.Kebalikan dari A380 dan Boeing 747, pesawat widebody dengan lebar terkecil di dunia rupanya datang dari sebuah pesawat buatan tahun 1981, Boeing 767. Pesawat yang di antaranya pernah dioperasikan oleh All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan Airlines, Delta Air Lines, dan United Airlines ini hanya memilliki lebar 4,72 meter. Pesawat ini bahkan masih terlampau cukup jauh dari pesawat widebody dengan lebar terkecil kedua, Airbus A330 dan A300, dengan lebar 5,28 meter.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedPesawat Jet Komersial Terpendek di Dunia Rupanya Warisan Jerman Barat19/08/2020In “Analisa Angkutan”Mengapa Pesawat Tri-Jet Tidak Se-Populer Twin-Jet dan Quad-Jet?

Alaska Extending 14-Day Self-Quarantine For Interstate Travel

first_imgCommisioner Crum clarified that the quarantine will be extended until June 2. He noted that essential industries, such as commercial fisheries, will have easier access to test their employees when they enter Anchorage. This will be followed by a quarantine period and subsequent release to work if the employees test negative. He could not expand on the specifics of the number of people who might be tested using this method, but Commissioner Crum said more details are to come. Governor Dunleavy then announced that Alaska’s 14-day self-quarantine for folks traveling into Alaska from other states has been extended. He believes that the travel restriction has helped tremendously, given the limited routes into Alaska. He said that none of these decisions are permanent, that they will be adjusted and revised based on the numbers with evaluations taking place daily. As business sectors open up, the state wants to see how the numbers fluctuate and they do not want lifting travel restrictions to impact that. It will be examined next week, with more decisions being made moving forward. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Mike Dunleavy held a press briefing to discuss Alaska’s 14-day self-quarantine for interstate travel.  He was joined by Lieutenant Governor Kevin Meyer, Commissioner Adam Crum of the Department of Health and Social Services, Commissioner Julie Anderson with the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, and Dr. Anne Zink, Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer.center_img The Governor started the conference by noting that the state is doing its best to manage the virus, both in business and in society. He hinted at soon being able to offer details on how the state will open up schools this fall, and how some aspects of Alaskan society may not be able to be opened as residents expect. He noted that Alaska is still on the best road towards being closer to normal than before.last_img read more

Vanderbilt’s Bryan Reynolds finds groove in postseason

We’ve done it in the past, and it’s worked. But I didn’t with him because his defensive component was so important to us.”Corbin considered benching Reynolds amid his six-week slump that yielded a .194 average over a 23-game stretch. This week, the former Brentwood standout has hit .500, the highest average of any Vanderbilt batter at the College World Series.“Everybody gets in a slump, but it just depends on how long they last and how you move on from it,” Reynolds said. “It can hold you down forever, or you can get through it and be better because of it.”Vanderbilt’s hitting stride at plateReynolds, a 2014 Freshman All-American, simply was too good in the field to leave out of the batting order, and he’s thankful Corbin left him in it.“Every time I see my name in the lineup, I’m happy it’s there,” Reynolds said. “But I just went through a hard time in the middle part of the year. I worked through it. It was more mental than anything.”Vanderbilt (50-19), the defending national champion, will play in Monday night’s opener of the best-of-three national championship series.Reynolds had a big part in getting the Commodores back to this final stage. Since breaking out of his slump in the SEC Tournament, he has hit a red-hot .489 in the past 11 postseason games.Vanderbilt making a pitch to be the bestWhen Reynolds went 3-for-4 with a career-high three runs scored in a win over Alabama in the SEC Tournament, he carried out his Christian-based routine of pointing to the sky at the end of a play. And with a different swagger to his swing, he made Corbin a believer that he was back to his former self.“Once we got to the SEC Tournament, it just became like a new year for him,” Corbin said. “He popped a couple of balls in the gap. And then he points to the sky sometimes, and we all know what he’s pointing at. But when he did it in the SEC Tournament, it was like, ‘OK, I’m back.’ And you could tell he felt it again.”Reynolds had two hits in the 4-3 win over Cal State Fullerton to start the College World Series, including an RBI double in the ninth-inning rally. He added another hit in the 1-0 victory over TCU on Tuesday and piled on three hits and two RBIs in a 7-1 win over the Horned Frogs on Friday, including Vanderbilt’s first triple of the College World Series.“His body language has taken over, and his confidence has taken over,” Corbin said. “I just like how he’s playing right now.”Reach Adam Sparks at 615-259-8010 and on Twitter @AdamSparks.

Soderberg slays McIlroy to win European Masters in playoff

first_img(Reuters) – Sebastian Soderberg was thrilled to play Sunday’s final round of the European Masters with Rory McIlroy but he did not let the occasion overwhelm him as he won the title following a five-way playoff in the Swiss Alps. The Swede sank his winning birdie putt from about 10 feet at the first extra hole and then watched as McIlroy and Finland’s Kalle Samooja both missed from shorter distances at Crans-sur-Sierre in Crans Montana.Soderberg looked to have frittered away victory earlier when he three-putted from short range at the 17th hole in regulation.But he regrouped to par the last hole to card four-under-par 66 and then clinched his first European Tour triumph at the same hole in the playoff. In his 50th European Tour appearance, Soderberg finished at 14-under 266 along with McIlroy (67), Samooja (67), Italian Lorenzo Gagli (67) and Argentine Andres Romero (70).Earlier, Soderberg had jumped to the front with five consecutive birdies but he felt he was “crumbling” after frittering away his lead at the 17th hole.“I thought it was exciting enough to just come out here and play with Rory,” the 28-year-old said in a greenside interview. “I was shaking the last few holes. I’m very proud of myself to play good when I feel like I’m shaking (though) I was way more calm in the playoff than in the last few holes.”McIlroy, a week after winning the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup on the PGA Tour, could not quite close the deal though he rallied late with five birdies in a six-hole stretch.“Too many mistakes,” he said of a week that included 14 bogeys. “I made enough birdies, but I just didn’t quite have it over the weekend. “This is my seventh event in eight weeks. I think playing so much, sometimes mental errors creep in here and there.”McIlroy sank a curling 18-foot birdie putt at the 17th to tie for the lead, but then carved his five-wood tee shot way right into the pines at the par-four 18th.His ball ended up near a stone plaque which marks the spot from where Seve Ballesteros made a stunning birdie to win the same event in 1993 after firing his recovery shot over a wall. But McIlroy took the safer route and punched out sideways to the fairway, from where he almost holed out from 120 yards, before tapping in for par.The playoff was halted for several minutes after Gagli’s tee shot struck the head of a spectator who required medical assistance.Perhaps distracted, the Italian subsequently hit his second shot into a greenside pond.last_img read more
