The latest Egyptair Airbus A320 disaster?Back to Forum
It is several months since this aircraft crashed into the Med off Greece. The Cockpit Voice Recorder and the Flight Recorder were both located and retrieved many weeks ago.
It is strange that the initial findings have not been published, other than there was a fire in the area of the side wall beside the F/Os seat.
With such silence abounding, are we to suspect that the findings could be catastrophic for Airbus, or that Egyptair will be embarrassed? Maybe it is both.
I do hope that we are not witnessing the early stages of a cover-up.
Maybe the UK CAA could shed some light on what happened.11 Sep 2016
I too was wondering about this in light of yesterdays anniversary and watching the film United 93 on SKY.
I believe Rolls Royce and GE both supply engines to them so I can see a reason for both CAA and FAA involvement.
I’d like to think they’ll be completely open about what happened but I do have a niggling doubt in the back of my mind?12 Sep 2016
The BEA don’t have a great track record with being fully transparent, especially when Airbus/ATR aircraft are involved.
As for the Egyptian authorities , remembering Egyptair flight 990 should create a level of mistrust
I know the 2 incidents aren’t comparable but isn’t it interesting that the Dubai authorities have already released a comprehensive interinm report on the EK crash !’12 Sep 2016
I have asked my MP to start delving around. We have the headquarters of the UK CAA in our constituency, so maybe he has contacts to find out what is going on.
The other angle maybe to contact BALPA and check whether they are keeping an eye on the situation. I will phone them this morning.13 Sep 2016
