Air France/YYZ Update

The TSB has released an update to the Air France investigation. Some of the new findings that were presented in the report are:

– A lightning strike damaged the wind direction and speed recording system for runway 24L (the one air france was to land on)

– Wind shifted at the moment of touchdown causing a tailwind for the landing aircraft

– The heavy rains diluted the foam the fire fighters were using to put out the flames.

The report indicates that a final report will be made to the public when their investigation is complete.
