Airbus A400M Crash: Investigation Update Reveals Multiple Engine Failures

Lawyers Reveal Hopes For Swift Conclusion To Investigations


Specialist lawyers representing victims of air crashes in the UK and abroad have welcomed Airbus’s latest update on the fatal A400M crash in Spain last month and urged for prompt answers as to what has caused these major failures.
Four people were killed and another two were injured when the aircraft came down shortly after take-off at San Pablo Airport in Seville on May 9th.
Now, an update from Airbus Defence & Space has confirmed that preliminary analysis of the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder has been completed, with a key finding being that three of the four engines failed just before the crash.
Airbus added that initial examinations found that other systems had performed normally and did not identify any other abnormalities during the flight. The manufacturer added that further updates would be provided as investigations continue.
The release of the latest information has been welcomed by aviation law experts at Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in supporting injured victims and the families of those killed in air accidents in the UK and abroad.
