Meanwhile, at Karlsruhe I poured in South West in Germany and the traffic controllers but a danger on their right.

As this particular section of airspace was underscored, God's jurisdiction, international Let traffic rules prevented the controller recalls why airport from directly communicating with either of the aircraft pots, instead the catch
Let's find scar, gods area Control Center in Zurich to warn them of the impending process, but they couldn't get through Scots Vines phones were still down Inside sky gods area Control Centre, Paden Usin, having dealt with the IRA, Lloyd, flawed, returned to his radar screen, immediately noticed that flights Ptc two thousand nine hundred and thirty seven into Dhx.

The true believes in built traffic collision avoidance system was in the process of rectifying the critical situation and had instructed captain grass to assent.
Paid a repeated his demand to expedite descent He's orders were actually directing the trooper live towards imminent collision to the crew that the other aircraft was in the trooper lives to a clock position winning actuality. The Boeing was in the ten o clock position. There was setting the decentralization of era was a result of paid, are becoming confused during this dreadful situation. Captain grass initiated dissent, as instructed by Pedro relieved here, diverted the crisis Peter had little time to settle here, snapped back to attention by the IRA, Lloyd Copy Crew, who radioed in with cold, nation nationwide made contact with Friedrichshafen Airport and had received permission to land.

And down by the bureau concluded the two thousand to rebuilding and media collision was largely due to two major causes. Firstly, paid a notion was not quick enough in noticing the danger of the collision. Secondly, the Tupolev crew made an error by obeying him and should have followed the commands provided by their take as equipment. Instead, despite these findings, the report determined pay to Nielsen was not responsible for the collision. It was severe
the critical towards scar, God faulting, the navigation company for allowing an air traffic controller to work alone and committing employees to take long breaks, despite such behavior being against regulations. Although scar, God management had informed paid her at the scheduled maintenance work, he was unaware of the detrimental impact it would have on the table. Is technical equipment? Aside from the fund, lines being shut down the radar software was also placed in a restricted mode, causing the system to work slower than usual, given the delay, it was highly likely painted, didn't fully understand the urgency of the situation as it was unfolding. This was indicated in the statements he provided immediately following the crash
He told investigators that he ordered the trooper led to descend two minutes before collision when in reality the order was given just forty three seconds prior. Furthermore, the issues that arise from the maintenance work men Pater spent more time than anticipated, coordinating the Airbus's light a rival to Friedrichshafen Airport. They also Back to the warning, calls from cars were airport about the impending collision. In addition, rightly to radio frequencies available to paid a nuisance. Workstation one was taken up by the airports and the other by the two pillars meaning transmissions from other flock ruse were unable to get through this men. He did not receive the radiation messages sent by Captain Pull Philips aboard the day. Highchair Boeing cargo jet, in which the pilot explicitly reported, he's aircrafts traffic collision avoidance system had ordered him.
The sand had paid a heard these messages and was aware of the Boeing's descent. It would never have ordered the trooper live to carry out the same action. Another factor working against Paedo was that the based optical collision warning system which provide in early alert to control, as when collisions are imminent, had also been switched off the maintenance. In conclusion, the report emphasised that individual such paid Nielsen. Captain Alexander Grass and Captain Pull Philips were not at fault for the cohesion and were in consequential to the poor organization, communication and management conducted by Sky God following publication of the bureau's report, a critical, I was also placed on the International civil Aviation organization when it was revealed that a year and a half prior to the EU in in midair collision a similar.

The japanese government appealed for international aviation authorities to implement measures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future sensing. The situation was a disaster waiting to happen, but their request was initially met with silence the International Civil Aviation organization, only chose to act after the fatal e billing in midair collision, japanese officials later stated, The international civil aviation organization did not feel it was necessary to get involved with this, and they left entirely up to the japanese authorities. Had it been a collision, maybe would have gotten involved. They carried out
a detailed investigation of the incident in Japan and made recommendations that lead to changes in procedures.
