Audio recorded in the cockpit of Tara Air’s 9N AET aircraft that crashed in Mustang has been recovered. The commission formed to investigate the plane crash on the way from Pokhara to Jomsom has successfully recovered the conversation in the cockpit from the black box.
According to the source, the conversation was recorded in the cockpit voice recorder (black box) of the crashed plane for 20 minutes. As soon as the decode is done, the conversation in the cockpit of the plane before the accident can be heard. The journey from Pokhara to Jomsom is about 20 minutes.
The Commission of Inquiry has also started taking statements from the concerned persons instead of collecting various documents. The commission has been formed by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation with Senior Aeronautical Engineer Ratish Chandra Lal Suman as Chairman and Accident Investigation In-Charge.
The commission has been instructed to find out the cause of the accident and recommend measures to prevent such incidents from happening again in the future.
“Earlier, the report was supposed to be submitted within three months but now the deadline has not been fixed,” said the member. “However, we will complete the investigation within four months and submit the report.” The Commission of Inquiry has a preliminary estimate that the plane crash may have been due to malfunction.
