Investigators to reconstruct fatal Helios flight
16 December 2005

Greek air accident investigators will reconstruct the sequence of events that led to the crash of the Helios Boeing 737 outside Athens last August by staging some of the pressurisation problems it experienced on an identical plane. The reconstruction will be done on December 19. The 737 will take off from Cyprus at exactly the same time as the Helios flight, fly exactly the same route to Athens, simulate all the technical failures, and have an F-16 fighter plane follow as happened on the day of the accident.
