Human Error Caused 2010 Plane Crash in Tripoli That Killed 103 Passengers
01/03/2013 17:26:00
A Libyan commission says human error caused a May 2010 plane crash that killed 103 people when the Afriqiyah Airways plane from South Africa crashed into the desert near Tripoli's airport. Most of the passengers were Dutch tourists. A nine-year-old boy was the only survivor.

The final report of the commission was released Friday confirming earlier findings that the plane had no mechanical failures and did not run out of fuel. It pointed to communications errors and faulty procedures by the flight crew.

The commission notes: “The pilots' performance was likely impaired because of fatigue,” but it could not determine the extent to which this contributed to the crash.

The Libyan body had input from American and European experts as well as Airbus, which built the A330-202 plane.
