Board Reveals Report on Fatal Plane Crash

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The Transportation Safety Board has released its report on an Alberta plane crash that killed one of the air crew, citing equipment failure and "unnecessary chatter" between pilot and co-pilot as the cause.

The man who died when the Kenn Borek Air flight out of Edmonton went down near Kirby Lake, was 31-year-old Andrew Donald Fielding from Lethbridge Nine other people on the Beechcraft plane survived when it crashed last October. A Transportation Safety Board report into the tragedy says a stall warning horn didn't go off before the plane went out of control, but investigators couldn't explain why it didn't work.

The report added there was non-essential conversation between the pilot and co-pilot as they tried to find the Kirby Lake runway in less-than-ideal weather conditions. The board says the crew couldn't gauge the plane's performance properly when it slowed speed to the point of stalling before it fell to the ground.
