Yemenia flight 626 crash trial begins in France

Yemenia flight 626 crash trial begins in France

Paris, May 9 (Prensa Latina) The Paris Correctional Court instituted the trial, in which more than 550 civil parties are participating, for the fatal accident of the Yemenia flight 626 back in 2009, which killed 152 people, including 66 French.

The main hypothesis in the trial against Yemen Airways is human error, attributable to the pilots, whom died in the tragedy from which only a 12-year-old girl by the name of Bahia Bakari survived.

Although it was mentioned that the plane involved, an Airbus A310 covering the Sanaa-Moroni route, suffered from overexploitation, investigations based on the information recovered from the black boxes weeks after June 30th, 2009, suggest that neither the state of the aircraft nor the climate were the determining factors.

The accident was instead attributed to inappropriate actions by the crew on approach to the Moroni airport, causing the loss of control of the aircraft.

However, other inquiries cited the bad weather prevailing in the vicinity of the Comoros archipelago at the time, which would have caused the plane to crash in the Indian Ocean, where Bakari was miraculously rescued.

According to French media, the survivor will testify at the trial on May 23rd.
