2 ATCO's Accused In Milan Accident

Wed Oct 31, 2001 9:01 am

Two air traffic controllers at Linate Airport, have been accused of "serious negligence" in the preliminary report by the board of investigation, which has investigated tapes containing the communication at the time of the accident . Supposedly the german pilot (previously thought to be solely responsible for the accident) informed the tower, up to three times, that he wasn't in the right place and requested permission to continue. This afternoon Linate and four other airports, has been "degraded", meaning the airports will be closed at visibilities lower than 550 meters. Too late.
