Aviation officials are still trying to understand the fact how did Trans Asia Airways Flight 235 went dead just before seconds it took off. The fact that with this crash it would become second in a row is not helping the airlines either. When the pilot of the flight understood the fact that one of the engine is not responding it turned off the other engine too, in an attempt to restart. But unfortunately they didn’t get the time to do so, as the flight crashed in the river in Taipei.
Rescue workers are still trying to retrieve bodies from the river. 35 people along with the pilot were found dead. Among them 15 had survived and eight were still missing as the search is still going on. The body of the pilot that was found in the cockpit was still clutching the joystick. As for now where the family members of the crashed victim are mourning, the Airlines officials are fretting as they still have a lot to explain, that is once they themselves get to the bottom of the mystery of engine failure seconds within take off.
