Etihad A340-600 Writeoff

Wed Mar 21, 2012 9:02 am

Hi Guys,

Sorry for bringing this up, but I couldn't find anything authoritative on Google.

Does anybody have an official report on the Etihad A340-600 that jumped the chocks due to faulty procedures in Toulouse?

We had a aviation safety meeting at work yesterday, and some strange speculations came out there.

Here is the official report, but it is in French. I can't find it in English:

According to wikipedia, I know not the best source, the remains are being used as Virgin Atlantic's cabin crew trainer.

If you search F-WWCJ on Flickr there are a few photos.

A340-642(HGW) MSN 0856 [F-WWCJ] [EY] remains. by A380spotter, on Flickr

From the accident photos, I assume that the front section was damaged beyond repair. The middle section is said to have become a cabin trainer. I believe that when the Emirates A345 (A6-ERG) had its accident in MEL, it was flown to TLS where the rear section from the Etihad A346 (F-WWCJ), that was (relatively) undamaged, got installed.

Was it ever established who took responsibility for the accident? Wondering if Airbus or the airline's insurance company had to take the hit.

Quoting trav110 (Reply 6):

The responsible party would be Airbus as I assuming that aircraft had NOT been delivered to Etihad, so Airbus still owned the aircraft. Airbus had to be giving Eithad some pre delivery instructions or preforming requested tests as requested by Etihad.
Airbus had to be the responsible party.
