Tired pilot near the fault in the plane catastrophe in Billund

Poor planning and tiredness, was allegedly the direct cause of an aircraft from the swiss airline Darwin Airline was uncommon close to the end in a true disaster, since it should land in London back in december of 2015.

It shows a study by the swiss accident investigation board, STSB, according to the

Detective Behind the scenes at the Aib: How to get to the bottom of a plane crash

the Flight from the now bankrupt airline, which on this flight flew for the now bankrupt airline Airberlin, had to abandon the landing because of a too low indflyvningshøjde, which means that the pilot could not guarantee that the aircraft were at a safe height above any 'obstacles' on the ground.

In the first place selected the pilot to turn around and try to land again, but eventually had to give up and return to Berlin with the on board 26 passengers and three crew members.

the Event was subsequently categorised as a 'serious incident', and the case was therefore sent on to the STSB, which now - three years later - has come forward for the cause of the incident, which could have had fatal consequences.

According to the report, is the inadequate planning of the flight path as well as a reduced performance by the captain - most likely because of fatigue - the two main factors which directly caused indflyvningshøjden was not adhered to the 10. december.

In the report will be laid emphasis on, that the pilot had not slept enough the night before the flight, as changes in the plan meant that he landed as a passenger in Prague at 22.32 local time, after which he was picked up at his hotel already at 05.20 in the morning after, when he had to start his working day with a flight from Prague to Berlin.

It meant that the pilot had only six hours and 48 minutes to be transported to the hotel from the airport, check in, sleep and get ready to pick up, before he was to fly to the German capital.

Total had had the pilot five flights that day, which the trip to London was flight number four.

The swiss accident investigation board has, in the report, denied that there were problems with instrumentlandingssystemet on the flight to Billund. The same applies when it comes to the weather conditions on the day.
