Dutch experts help Kazakhstan with major Fokker 100 disaster


A team from the Dutch Safety Board (OVV) is on its way to Kazakhstan to assist in investigating the causes of the air disaster with a Fokker 100 from Bek Air. Fifteen passengers died and dozens ended up in the hospital.

It is common for the OVV to be involved in the investigation in such situations, since the aircraft in question is of Dutch origin.

The Fokker 100 crashed shortly after taking off. There is a lot of speculation about the cause in local media. Ice formation on the wings, for example, would have been caused by the low temperature and dense fog, causing the device to lose its carrying capacity. However, there is no conclusive evidence for that.
