“Report made clear that the weather almost certainly played a role in the crash” Uh?

A recent article stated that the Canadian Transportation Safety Board was due to do release the crash report for an Airbus A340. The aircraft came in too high and too fast in bad weather and “simply” ran out of runway. Not seeing the full report yet, I have to ask what root cause analysis process was used in this accident investigation?


With the advanced instrumentation and glass cockpits of today, how and why did this accident occur? I can’t prevent bad weather so the corrective action based on the report must be don’t attempt to land in bad weather…If this seems wrong to you then I suggest that you try the TapRooTç root cause analysis process.
