Six agencies involved in NATO`s hiring of crashed Yak-42
25 May 2005

The Spanish minister of Defense reported that six different agencies were involved in the hiring of a UM Air Yakovlev 42 plane to transport Spanish peacekeeping forces back home from Afghanistan. He argued that this was a factor in the accident, additional to the preliminary conclusions drawn by the international accident investigation committee. Reportedly poor CRM, improper inflight planning and crew fatigue were responsible for the May 2003 accident near Trabzon, Turkey. (ABC.es)
