Aviation Accident Investigation: Drunk? Disoriented? Fatigued? Un-Trained? Or All-of-the-Above?
Reuters reported that An Aeroflot 373 veers out of control and crashes while passing through a cloud at night.
The aviation investigators find the cause of the crash … TRAINING.
But they also say the crew “lost orientation.”
They also mention alcohol in the pilot’s bloodstream and excessive fatigue but say that these weren’t the main causes …
But Alexei Morozov, head of the investigating commission, emphasized:
“I repeat again: the direct cause of the accident
was the loss of orientation in space.”
And that’s the problem when you must arrive at a single cause.
