“A pilot who witnessed Sunday’s fatal airplane crash in Erie from the ground said he believes the aircraft went down after heading the wrong way toward runway traffic and aborting its landing.”
As noted by plane crash attorney Jonathan C. Reiter of the New York based Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm, PLLC, when pilots make errors and attempt to correct them it is often difficult to make adjustments that will get the plane to safety once certain events have already been set into motion. In the case of the Erie plane crash, if the pilot was making an attempt to reverse his direction of travel after going the wrong way, time and space constraints may have made it implausible for the plane to safely land or achieve the right air speed for lifting higher in time. Several factors must be investigated to determine the exact cause of the accident; however, as well any preventative measures could have possibly been taken.
The National Transportation Safety Board will continue to investigate the circumstances of the Erie plane crash. Aviation accident lawyer Jonathan C. Reiter will continue to follow developments in the story.
