| AIBN Report On 10/10/06 Aircraft Accident
Thursday, 19 April 2012 20:35
Aerotoxic Association Comment is that the report is not factually accurate:
1. Blood tests are now available which demonstrate toxic oil fume exposure to organophosphates.
2. “People are not ‘believed’ to have been made sick or unwell as a consequence” – This was proven in an Australian High Court on 10th October 2010 - 18 years after exposure in 1992.
3. It is hardly reasonable for a Court case involving serious ill health to take 18 years to be concluded, nor a fatal accident report 5 ½ years to be published.
1.13.2 There have been incidents with the BAe146 aircraft type in which air contaminated with organophosphates from the engines have entered the cabin and people are believed to have become unwell or sick as a consequence. On the day of the accident, the AIBN therefore requested that the authorised medical examiner at the Norwegian CAA aeromedical section was consulted before blood samples were taken. No medical findings indicate that there was any contamination of the cabin air prior to the accident with OY-CRG.
Let us know what you think.
