    Suddenly the ratio of fatalities to survivors becomes high for a plane that ended up in a small river!!

    ATWOnline: Friday Feb 6, 2015
    TransAsia: Right engine malfunctioned, pilots shut off left engine
    Both of TransAsia Airways flight GE235’s Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127M engines stopped producing thrust during the brief flight of the ATR 72-600, investigators said.

    The turboprop aircraft, carrying 53 passengers and five crew, crashed into a river in Taipei on Feb. 4 just over three minutes after taking off. As of Feb. 6, the death toll stood at 35 people, including the two pilots.

    Data from the ATR 72-600’s flight data recorder (FDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR) indicates that a right engine flameout warning sounded in the cockpit shortly after takeoff, according to a Feb. 6 preliminary report from Taiwan’s Aviation Safety Council (ASC). The aircraft was only at an altitude of 1,200 feet when this occurred. However, ASC said data indicates that the engine didn’t actually flame out, but went into auto-feather mode, which means it was operating at a reduced level and not producing thrust.

    For unexplained reasons, the pilots then set the left engine—which data indicates was not malfunctioning—“to fuel shutoff position resulting in left engine shutdown,” according to ASC. Investigators said they did not know why the flight deck crew shut off the left engine, which should have provided enough thrust to keep the ATR 72-600 flying even with the right engine experiencing problems.

    ASC said the pilots could be heard on the CVR calling for an engine restart several times in the moments before the crash and data indicates the left engine did restart 16 seconds before the FDR stopped recording.


    Pratt & Whitney Canada is cooperating with investigators, but not commenting while the crash probe is ongoing.
