A passenger plane of Taiwan’s TransAsia Airways on a domestic flight crashed during an attempted emergency landing on an outlying island province of Penghu, leaving 47 people dead and 11 injured, local media said.

 

The twin-engine ATR-72 turboprop aircraft, carrying 54 passengers and four crew members, was on a flight from Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan to the Penghu Islands.

 

The aircraft was unable to land at the airport on the islands and crash-landed in a village on Wednesday evening after flying in circles, Taiwan’s CDNews said in an online report.

Have any of the crash investigation reports indicated that there is a design/manufacturing problem with ATR products?

they had some landing gear problems, remember that Air Newzealand one that made a belly landing a couple of years ago?

 

id say their poor safety record is more attributable pilot error and maintenance issues, ie small commuter airlines operate them frequently.

Listen carefully around 00:50

 

 

Video does not play in my region. They are almost certainly talking crap if they are saying it could be missile as there is no evidence to support that claim, but the media love to find patterns and join dots that don't exist.

The reporter in the video mentions that it was flying over an area where the armed groups use 122mm Grad rockets fired from technicals. She points out that they aren't very accurate, and that the most likely explanation for the missing airplane is that it went down in bad weather.

 

So yes, the possibility of it being shot down was raised, but even the reporter seems to find that very unlikely.

yeah, it looks as if it went down in northern mali, so you definitely couldnt categorically say it wasnt shot down, but given it would have probably been at cruising altitude, bad weather is the far more likely cause.

 

according to wiki, 7 airliner incidents this year. which doesnt seem unusual, the two MH losses are extraordinary obviously.

we have had a few light plane crashes in Aus already, which seems up on the average. one was caused by a broken seat bracket, one by the pilot trying to land at night on an unlit strip, another crashed shortly after takeoff, havent heard the cause yet. could be a reporting thing but.

An Air Algerie jetliner with 116 people aboard crashed Thursday in a rainstorm over northern Mali, and officials said its wreckage has been found.

OK. I wasn't sure what you were counting.
