Umroh Januari

saco-indonesia.com, Pembersihan Bandara Internasional Adi Soemarmo, Solo, Jawa Tengah hingga Selasa siang, baru telah mencapai 70 persen. Sementara kondisi landasan pacu sebagian juga masih diselimuti abu vulkanik akibat dari letusan Gunung Kelud Jumat (14/2) lalu.

Akibatnya bandara yang telah terletak di bagian barat kota Solo tersebut belum bisa dioperasikan dari rencana semula, Rabu (19/2) pagi.

Kepala Otoritas Bandara Wilayah III, Mohammad Alwi juga mengatakan, pembukaan bandara baru juga dapat dilakukan pada Kamis (20/2) pagi, pukul 07.00 WIB. Keputusan tersebut diambil setelah pihaknya melakukan rapat dengan otoritas bandara, stakeholders, Danlanud, GM dan BMKG.

Penutupan ini telah dilakukan lantaran pembersihan landasan dan penunjang lainnya belum selesai dilakukan. Selain pengecekan kondisi bandara, pihaknya juga telah melakukan pengecekan kelayakan pesawat.

" Pesawat harus kita cek, yakni dengan inspeksi dengan boroskop, penggantian saringan filter udara, penggantian oli, kompresor wash, kemudian harus diputar motoring serta run up dengan idle power," kata Alwi kepada wartawan, Selasa (18/2).

Lebih lanjut Alwi juga mengatakan, pihaknya telah memberikan batas waktu hingga Kamis pagi, bandara bisa beroperasi kembali.

"Kita juga pastikan beberapa aspek, di antaranya aspek keamanan, sebelum bandara kita buka kembali," ujarnya.

Sementara itu General Manager PT Angkasa Pura I Bandara Adi Soemarmo, Abdullah Usman juga mengatakan, pembersihan runway sampai saat ini hampir selesai.

"Total panjang runway 2600x60 meter. Ini pembersihan tinggal kira-kira 500 meter. Semoga nanti cepat selesai," katanya.

Menurut Usman, pihaknya telah menerjunkan sebanyak 825 personel TNI AU dan masih dibantu beberapa komponen lainnya.

ADI SOEMARMO TUTUP SAMPAI KAMIS

WASHINGTON — During a training course on defending against knife attacks, a young Salt Lake City police officer asked a question: “How close can somebody get to me before I’m justified in using deadly force?”

Dennis Tueller, the instructor in that class more than three decades ago, decided to find out. In the fall of 1982, he performed a rudimentary series of tests and concluded that an armed attacker who bolted toward an officer could clear 21 feet in the time it took most officers to draw, aim and fire their weapon.

The next spring, Mr. Tueller published his findings in SWAT magazine and transformed police training in the United States. The “21-foot rule” became dogma. It has been taught in police academies around the country, accepted by courts and cited by officers to justify countless shootings, including recent episodes involving a homeless woodcarver in Seattle and a schizophrenic woman in San Francisco.

Now, amid the largest national debate over policing since the 1991 beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles, a small but vocal set of law enforcement officials are calling for a rethinking of the 21-foot rule and other axioms that have emphasized how to use force, not how to avoid it. Several big-city police departments are already re-examining when officers should chase people or draw their guns and when they should back away, wait or try to defuse the situation
