AIRCRAFT CRASH AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT 4
how and what caused the crash. (Ronan, 2019). While these investigators were busy looking for
information to aid in the investigations people were discussing and imagining a variety of
reasons responsible for the crash. One of the primary causes that the people were attributing to
the purpose of this accident was the lousy weather.
The data that the investigators of the crash obtained from the flight radar 24 paint a picture
of a very vigorous descent of the plane at around noon time. The aircraft was flying at 8,675 feet
in the air. (Ronan, 2019). The crew at around 12.37 PM had attempted an emergency land
procedure, and the plane descended to a lower altitude of about 5850 feet. At around 12.39PM, a
sudden descent was realized with the plane lowering more than 4000 feet of elevation. (Ronan,
2019). The information indicates that the final ping-back from the flight at around 1325 feet,
which is approximately 403 meters above the sea level. Further, reports suggest the airplane
crashed at around 12.45PM, and none of the people on board was saved. (Ronan, 2019).
The principal suspect of the plane crash cause was a microburst. (Zhang, Hu, & Sarkar,
2013). The microburst phenomenon is an occurrence which results from a very intense burst of
strong winds which hit the ground and the winds often continue spreading in all directions in an
upward motion. This phenomenon is capable of causing a wind shear. Typically, airplanes are
always susceptible to the microburst phenomenon, especially when they are preparing to land.
The problem that this phenomenon causes is wind shear. (Zhang, Hu, & Sarkar, 2013)
Due to the danger that these natural occurrences posse to the planes, most pilots use the
substantial time to train on how to handle and prevent the dangers that come alongside these
environmental phenomena. Besides the probable microburst, another significant cause of this
crash could be a mechanical hitch. Some of the mechanical glitches that are dangerous enough to
