  • 2008 Itek Air B732 crash report finally out

    CFIT - a turn back due to technical issue not related to the cause of the crash - a nocturnal visual straight-in approach over unpopulated area abandoned due to miscalculation on glide slope/speed - a left hand orbit (approved by the controller) resulted in loss of visual contact with runway and any ground references, yet continued - - altitude/vertical speed not monitored - TWS warnings ignored as nuisance warnings due to non-landing configuration despite the assumption of being in level flight - left wing strike in a slight roll - impact with level terrain.

    PIC with 18000 hrs.
