This is one weird accident…!
“Investigators believe the Starbow Airlines ATR 72-500 runway excursion at Ghana’s Kotoka airport was preceded by an unexpected slip of the captain’s unsecured cockpit seat.”
The aircraft was only delivered a couple of days before the accident.
“Five occupants were injured during the accident. The aircraft, which had been bound for Kumasi, sustained damage to components including its left-hand propeller blades and fuselage.”
Now the flights are suspended!
“Our operations have been suspended until further notice," Starbow chief executive James Eric Antwi tells FlightGlobal.”
