BTC2937 vs DHX611
The dramatic, emotional reconstruction of an air crash over Germany.
Basically due to misinformed air traffic controller. International air traffic rules actually played a large part in this crash.
A terrible accident in which every person involved lost their lives. One of the most disasterous and tragic air crash investigations.
The investigation blames human error. If the Russian pilots had of followed the TCAS instruction to climb instead of the ATC instruction to descend, the crash would never have happened. Additionally if better procedures were in place to inform the ATC's of their vital equipment being dowin during maintenance, would not have heppened either.
Peter nielsen was the poor air traffic controller that ill-fated night, he was subsequently murdered aparantly by the father of a dead child, even it was not really his fault. Swiss, Air Crash Investigations.
F, descend hard! say the doomed DHL pilots. I think they could be forgiven for swearing in that circumstance.
The tail of the DHL clips the belly of the tupolev, tearing it in half.
Boeing 747, Russian tupolev, Germany mid air collision.
