Plane crash ATR-42 Trigana Air in Papua - New Guinea
Passenger plane ATR-42-300, owned by Indonesian airlines «Trigana Air Service» followed a course from Jayapura to Oksibil performing regular flight on the local loop. The accident occurred just ten minutes before the landing, however, despite this, no one as a result of the incident could not survive.
Pilot error, technical failure or poor visibility?
According to the official version of what happened, the plane crash passenger aircraft ATR-32-300, owned airline «Trigana Air Service», was caused by a collision with the mountain, located just 14 kilometers from the destination of this flight. On board the aircraft were 5 crew members, including two pilots and three conductors and 49 passengers who died, according to experts on the ground from his injuries. Currently, in fact the tragedy under investigation, however, experts involved in the review mainly three basic versions, including pilot error, technical failure, and poor visibility.
As more experts are inclined to believe that the crash «Trigana Air Service» was caused by pilot error, particularly given the fact that the collision occurred with the mountain, the pilot chose the wrong height to follow the plane as in the manual to operate flights indicated that the aircraft was to follow at a higher altitude, and it is possible that in such a situation, the tragic consequences could not be. However, it remains unknown why the air traffic controller, who was watching the aircraft, did not inform the pilot that his chosen Echelon is erroneous.
Poor visibility could also cause the crash ATR-42-300 «Trigana Air Service», especially since experts believe that the incident occurred already with the direct reduction of the aircraft, in particular, in a cloud, the pilot could simply do not see the mountain, in and causing the collision occurred.
The probability of a technical fault on the board according to experts is highly unlikely because the pilot did not report any problems encountered, however, it is not excluded that the incident could be caused by malfunction of the flaps that are denied during the descent, which is why version itself remains highly relevant.
To date, investigators managed to find a flight data recorder of the aircraft, and it is possible that the decoded information will allow him to get to know the causes of the disaster.
Plane crash ATR-42 Trigana Air could be caused by artificially?
In addition to the basic versions, the experts suggest that with 54 people on board an aircraft crash may have been caused by artificial means, in particular, not be ruled out version of what was originally the plane could not land at the airport Oksibila. The assumptions are mainly related to the fact that the aircraft was transported impressive amount of money intended for the poor, and according to experts, the amount of money could simply be stolen even before the departure of the aircraft, and the catastrophe itself would be no more than a an attempt to hide the crime.
At its core, the wreckage almost immediately there was a fire, which is why the money on board, or may have been destroyed by fire, or else ... they were not there (or was not a part thereof) at the time of departure of the aircraft. However, for unknown reasons, the experts refused to consider the current version, as very improbable, but, as experience shows, quite possibly, this is the clue may be a key in a plane crash.
