Crew actions factor in low flying incident at Nantes
27 July 2004

The French BEA released the final report of their investigations into the March 21 incident of a Luxor Air MD-83 at Nantes. The MD-83 descended to approx. 400ft over the city after deviating from the VOR-DME approach path of a presumed thunderstorm ahead. Factors were a.o. the crew’s inexperience in VOR/DME approaches and the decision to carry out an improvised manoeuver. (BEA)
