Joint inquiry starts into Iran plane crash in UAE

Wednesday, February 11, 2004

Representatives from the United Arab Emiratesand Iranian civil aviation authorities began Wednesday investigating the causes of an Iranian Kish Airlines plane crash in the UAE that killed 43 people.

"The Iranian delegation, which arrived in Dubai on Tuesday evening, began this morning meeting with the UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority," the head of Sharjah's civil aviation authority, Abdul Wahab Mohammed al-Roomi, told AFP.

The plane crashed as it was coming in to land in Sharjah on Tuesday, killing 43 people on board and leaving three survivors as it narrowly missed a residential area before plunging to the ground.

"A representative of Sharjah's civil aviation authority took part in the meeting," said Roomi, adding that "the number of crash victims has not changed," while one of the three survivors is still in critical condition.

The Kish Airlines Fokker 50 twin-turboprop aircraft had an Iranian crew of six while the passengers included 12 Iranians, 12 Indians, four Egyptians, two Algerians, two Filipinos, one Bangladeshi, one Cameroonian, one Nepalese, one Nigerian, one Syrian, one Sudanese and one UAE national, according to a passenger manifest Roomi said was sent by Iranian airport authorities.

The flight had come from Iran's Persian Gulf island of Kish when it went down in an open area sandwiched between the villas of a crowded residential zone about two miles (nearly four kilometres) from the airport, on the border between Sharjah and Ajman, another emirate in the seven-member UAE federation.
