Monday evening Oct.31 the US Stratfor private intelligence and analytical company has released a report on the possible causes of Airbus A321 plane crash over the Sinai, according to RBC.
- Although we cannot completely rule out the possibility of damage to the aircraft, but the majority of aircraft accidents happening due to equipment failure occur during takeoff and landing, when mechanical impact on board is enhanced. The aircraft rarely breaks when flying at an altitude, say experts.
According to the report, in the case of mechanical fault, the airliner pilots were likely to be able to maneuver and to touch the ground without any disastrous consequences.
Reminder: Oct 31, being en route to St. Petersburg from Sharm el-Sheikh, the Russian A321 airliner, the Kogalymavia airline, crashed with 224 people being on board, four of them Ukrainians.
