A report into the Emirates flight that crash landed last year concluded that ‘there were no aircraft systems or engine abnormalities up to the time of the accident.’
A flight from Trivandrum International Airport crashed on landing in August last year.
One year on a report from the United Arab Emirates’ General Civil Aviation Authority reveals there were no abnormalities on the plane, which crashed on landing. At the time, the plane had aborted a landing due to harsh weather conditions but eventually hit the runway as the landing gear was retracting.
The crew and passengers were aborted safely, some suffered minor injuries while a firefighter tragically lost his life during the rescue operation.
Authorities are looking elsewhere for a cause…
“We are working to determine and analyse the human performance factors that influence flight crew actions”.
