The committee set up to investigate the recent plane crash at the Kotoka International Airport has said in a terse preliminary report that “an unstable approach” led to the overrun on the runway.
The five-member committee chaired by Capt.
Alec Grant Sam, was tasked to ascertain the cause of the June 2, 2012 plane crash involving an Allied Air Boeing 727-200 (DHV 111) near the El-Wak Sports Stadium.
The committee fell short of releasing further details but said the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has initiated actions to replace the Instrument Landing System destroyed by the aircraft.
Meanwhile, the Accident Investigation Bureau has approved the removal of the wreckage while investigations continue.
On June 02, an Allied Air Cargo plane overshot the airport’s runway and crashed into a mini bus, killing nine passengers on board and a motorbike rider.
The Black Box of the plane has been flown to the United States to “obtain data which will assist in the determination of the probable cause(s) of the accident.”
