Same airline and same plane type but different flying conditions.
Still this is sad and disturbing news.
Just saw the crash video on cnn from captured by a dash cam. Wow.
I am surprised (happily) that anyone survived.
Edit- my mistake caught by next poster. But the conclusion holds.
In general the Asian market has been growing so strongly that I have to wonder if airlines, especially LCC's, are maintaining standards and training levels for pilots and maintenance.
I may be confused, but it seems you are quoting a wikipedia article on a different carrier?
Yup, sorry, I saw a mixed early article and thought this was also AirAsia.
TransAsia is much smaller but proportional to its size has been growing pretty quickly, adding a couple planes and crews each year.
TransAsia plane crash: Pilot complained of ‘engine abnormality’ before take-off
• Pilot complained of ‘engine abnormality’ before crash which killed 32
• Father saved his baby son from TransAsia crash with CPR
• Dashcam captures shocking moment a Taiwan TransAsia plane clipped a bridge before crashing in to river
• TransAsia Taiwan plane crash: 12 months of Asia air travel disasters
• Drone footage shows Taiwan plane wreckage
• TransAsia plane crash: Watch animation of moment aircaft crashes into Taiwan river
The dashcam footage looked like a scene from a movie - unreal and surreal at the same time! So sorry to hear of lives lost but also happy for those saved.
