BEA releases preliminary factual report on Fokker 100 accident
18 April 2007

The French BEA published their preliminary findings regarding the January accident of a Fokker 100 at Pau, France. The airplane banked left and right immediately after takeoff, forcing the crew to abort the takeoff. The F100 hit a truck and ended up in a field. It was first suggested by the DGAC that the plane had hit birds, but no traces of birds were found in the engines. Both engines functioned properly. (BEA)
