China Airlines Disagree With MD11 Crash Report

Thu Jun 20, 2002 4:03 am

Apparantely China Airlines is trying to overturn the investigation report of MD11 crash in Hong Kong in 1999. Hong Kong officials has decided to review the crash report.

3 killed when a China Airlines MD11 flipped over when landing in Hong Kong in 1999.

The report concluded that the main cause was the pilot's inability to stop the jet's descent. This review of the investigation report will be the first such review in Hong Kong's aviation history.

China Airlines officials was not very happy about the report because they don't agree with the report.


It's just typical China Airlines' tradition, trying to not be responsible for the crash...

Well, who asked for China Airline's opinion in the first place? If they're not crashing them, they're saying they weren't at fault for crash them.
Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.
