Inquiry finds human error to blame for Air France crash

An enquiry into the Air France crash in June 2009 has found human error to be at fault.

It is suggested that the junior pilots were not properly trained to deal with an emergency and the captain was on a rest break.

This was combined with it being in the middle of a tropical thunerstorm and when the captain returned, there was too much panic to resolve the problem.

The flight killed all 228 people on board.

The inquiries findings have been immediately rejected by Air France. The airline and Airbus are also likely to face manslaughter charges over the crash.
