Civil Aircraft

They lost the control after the takeoff " by not to have formed the airplane correctamente" and not to have unfolded the flaps/slats. She is one of the conclusions at which the Commission has arrived from Investigation of Accidents and Civil Aircraft incidents in its report. There was no a warning of incorrect configuration because the system that alerts in these cases did not work. The crew of the apparatus of ill-fated Spanair in August of 2008 in the airport of Madrid-Barajas did not form the apparatus correctly, did not unfold the flaps/slats (used ailerons to land and to take off) and did not detect these errors, among others reasons, because the alert system did not work (TOWS). These are the conclusions at which the Commission has arrived from Investigation of Accidents and Incidents of Aviacin Civil (CIAIAC), in the definitive report of the accident, in which 154 people died, published east Friday. In the chapter of causes, the report indicates that the crew did not detect the error of configuration nor " it identified the warnings of loss nor corrected that situation after despegue" , which caused a deterioration of the flight conditionses. Between the factors that contributed to the accident, the CIAIAC indicates that there was no a warning of incorrect configuration because the TOWS (system that alerts in these cases) did not work. According to the commission, the crew did not carry out the action to select to the flaps/slats with the corresponding control lever, nor realised the crossed verification of the position of the handle and the state of the light signals of those two elements. They either did not verify of visual form the final execution corresponding to the position of the flaps/slats, as they showed the instruments of the flight cabin. Although it failed the operation of the TOWS, the report alludes to " inadequate gestin" of the resources on the part of the crew.
