Aeroméxico: recover the black boxes of the plane
Incident filmed by a passenger from inside the cabin
The authorities of the civil aviation agency of Mexico recovered the flight recorders of the Embraer E-190 plane crashed the day before yesterday at Durango airport during take-off. This was declared by the director of the agency Luis Gerardo Fonseca, who will now be able to manage the investigations with the help of the vital "black boxes" containing all the details of the Aeroméxico 2431 flight.
Officially it is still too early to be able to say precisely what caused the accident, but several videos have been published of the incident. One put on the web by "Webcams of Mexico" which is a time-lapse of the clouds and rain that was falling on Durango in those minutes, while the other was recorded by a passenger on board sitting at the wing right of the plane. In this videoclip we can see the fog and the very heavy rain which, with the increase of the speed of the E-190, makes the external view practically impossible, until you can see the land that approaches the impact with the ground.
Nevertheless, of the 103 people on board only two have suffered serious injuries -but not lethal- and the lucky men on board, along with videos of the incident and flight recorders will be useful to quickly ascertain the causes of the accident. In a survey that will also involve the NTSB (National Transportation Safery Board) and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), as well as the Embraer and General Electric teams, this latest engine manufacturer.
