Colombian Plane Crash: What Does This Tell Us About Aviation Safety Procedures?
Earlier this week, the devastating news broke that flight LAMIA 933 had crashed, killing 71 people, and only six survivors. The charter aircraft, carrying 77 people, came down in a mountainous area outside Medellin at about 10.15pm local time. Three of the survivors were members of the Chapecoense soccer squad en route to the Copa Sudamericana final. While the investigation to how this incident occurred is still underway, it leaves the question to what can be in place to prevent tragedies like this and how significant are the safety procedures in order of survival? The Daily was joined on the line by Snr Lecturer Ronald Bishop, Aviation Discipline Leader at the HHSS School, CQ University.
