On 4 February 2015 a Transasia ATR72 departed from Taipei Songshan to Kinmen, Taiwan with 53 passengers and 5 crew. Shortly after take off the aircraft rolled to the left and began to lose height. After hitting a taxi and clipping a bridge, the aircraft impacted the water of the Keelung River. Tragically, 43 of the 58 occupants lost their lives.
Investigators have retrieved and begun analysing data from the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) and Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR). It is reported that the data from the FDR suggests there was a dual engine failure which caused the aircraft to stall and lose height. It is vital that a full and comprehensive accident report determines what caused both engines to lose power.
