Cork air crash: Inquest returns verdicts of accidental death

The Fairchild Metro EC-ITP aircraft crashed, overturned and caught fire on its third attempt to land at the airport in 2011.

AN INQUEST INTO the fatal air crash at Cork Airport in 2011 has returned verdicts of accidental death in relation to the six people who died in the tragedy.

The Fairchild Metro EC-ITP aircraft crashed, overturned and caught fire on its third attempt to land at Cork Airport on February 10, 2011.

An Air Accident Investigation Unit report published last January, found that poor decisions by the air crew combined with lack of oversight of the airline operators were contributing factors in the disaster.
