Dubai / WAM
The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has announced that an investigation team begun the process of identifying aircraft wreckage recovered from the flydubai accident.
A statement released by the GCAA today said that some parts of the wreckage have been identified and that the investigation will continue tomorrow in the hangar focussing primarily on the aircraft flight control components.
Saif Mohamed Al Suwaidi, Director-General of the General Civil Aviation Authority, said, â€œSpeculation on the cause of the accident, which the Air Accident Investigation Sector (AAIS), together with colleagues from various state investigation authorities are working on under the leadership of the Russian Federation Interstate Aviation Committee, is unhelpful, and can be upsetting for the relatives of the victims.â€
Ismaeil Al Hosani, Assistant Director-General of AAIS, stated that the operation investigation team is continuing to examine the flight and weather data. â€œAnalysis of the flight and voice data extracted from the recorders is ongoing to determine the aircraft technical performance, and crew control inputs and performance,â€ he said.
