Tuesday, September 21, 2010

The Teterboro controller, distracted by his personal phone call, didn’t immediately tell Altman that he had transferred control of the plane to Newark Liberty International Airport. The controller did finally told Altman to tune to Newark Airport’s frequency, and gave him the number, The Times reported. But when Altman read back the number to check that it was correct, the controller didn’t catch the fact that the pilot had repeated the wrong number The NTSB believes that the collision may have been avoided if Newark Airport had been able to contact Altman and to tell him to move out of harm’s way from the copter, according to The Times.



Two Nato troops, an Afghan soldier and a US civilian were also injured, an Isaf statement said. The nationalities of the Nato troops are not known It is not yet clear what caused the crash, but Isaf said there was no enemy fire where the aircraft came down At least 529 foreign troops have been killed so far this year in Afghanistan The toll makes 2010 the deadliest year since the US-led invasion in 2001, according to figures collated by the website iCasualties.21 September 2010 Last updated at 00:08 ET Nine members of the Nato-led International Security Assistance Force have been killed in a helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan, officials.

The NTSB found that a variety of problems collectively led to the collision of the plane and copter. For example, Liberty Helicopter pilot Jeremy Clarke was flying at 1,100 feet, 100 feet higher than Liberty told its pilots to fly. Clarke and his passengers, five Italian tourists, were all killed The board aslo noted that the Federal Aviation Administration’s admonition to “see and avoid” other aircraft had limits, and obvously failed to prevent the Aug. 8 collision.
