Turkish Airline Crash - 2/24/09

A Turkish Airlines Boeing 737 crashed while trying to land at Amsterdam's Schiphol International airport on Wednesday, killing at least nine and injuring 50 of the 134 passengers on board.

Investigators are examining turbulence as one of the possible causes of the Turkish Airlines crash. Other possible causes under investigation include weather-related factors, insufficient fuel, loss of fuel, navigational errors, pilot fatigue or bird strikes.

Witnesses on the ground said the plane dropped from about 300 feet. It smashed into three pieces as it skidded to a halt in the mud but there was no fire. The crash came about two miles short of the runway of Amsterdam's main airport. The Boeing 737-800, plowed into a muddy field near Amsterdam's main airport as it tried to land.

The airline also denied reports that the plane, which was built in 2002, had had technical problems in the days before the accident. The plane underwent routine maintenance Feb. 19, and had to delay a flight Feb. 23, the day before the crash to replace a faulty caution light.

If you, a family member, or a client have been injured in a plane crash, you need the help of an aviation attorney.

Do not accept the airline’s insurance company’s settlement without speaking with an attorney. Call us TODAY for a free consultation.
