Malaysia’s civil aviation authority to probe MAS over erratic flight incident

0 35


KUALA LUMPUR – The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) will probe the flight data of a Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight involving a Boeing 737-800 plane after it allegedly dove suddenly and flew erratically before turning back on Sunday (April 3).

CAAM chief executive Chester Voo Chee Soon said the authority would be reviewing the internal flight data monitoring system of Flight MH2664 to get to the bottom of the issue.

“Preliminary data has shown correct responses by the operating crew following the issue onboard,” Captain Voo said in a statement on Tuesday.

“CAAM will continue to monitor the situation and will not compromise on any issues that might jeopardise the safety and security of airline operations and the public,” he added.

The Straits Times has confirmed from an official source that the plane involved in Sunday’s alleged incident was a Boeing 737-800, the same model as the one involved in the China Eastern Flight MU5735 crash reported on March 21.

The Chinese passenger plane was carrying 132 passengers and crew, and was en route from the city of Kunming towards Guangzhou when it suddenly went into a steep dive and slammed into a heavily wooded mountainous area.

There were no reports of survivors.

On Tuesday, an MH2664 flight passenger claimed that the plane flying from Kuala Lumpur to Tawau town in Sabah dove suddenly before making a turn and heading back.

Passenger Halimah Nasoha wrote on Facebook about her experience on the 2.30pm flight, saying many passengers panicked, screamed and cried as the aircraft lost altitude sharply about 30 minutes after take-off.

She claimed that a flight radar tracker displayed in the cabin showed that the flight had dropped from 25,000 feet to 23,000 feet (7,620m to 7,010m) – a drop of 610m.

“It was very frightening for many of us. I really felt like I was going to die,” she wrote on Facebook.

“I was upset because I wasn’t wearing a seatbelt at that time,” she said, adding that she “floated” off her seat due to this.

“The flight was unstable. It went up and then went down. But the first time it went downwards was the worst,” she added.
