Information released on 21 October 2004 by crash investigators seems to point to the aircraft's pilots flying too low in poor visibility and hitting the ground on its approach to the airport, a type of crash that the terrain avoidance warning system is designed to prevent, reports USA Today.
The US Air Force accident investigation board found the crash was caused by a "breakdown in terrain avoidance responsibilities between the pilots and air traffic controllers on the ground".
Lieutenant Colonel Scott Vadnais, who is based at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, said he did not wish to attribute blame for the tragedy and stressed many factors were involved in the accident But on the issue of avoiding collision, he said: 'In the UK the pilot has responsibility for terrain avoidance but the pilot relinquished that responsibility to air traffic control.
Modes: RWS = range while scan TWS = track while scan LD/SD = look-down/shoot-down ATA = automatic threat assessment RA = raid assessment CM = combat maneuver (close combat) GTD = ground-target detection GTT = ground-target tracking GMTI = ground-moving-target indication DBS = Doppler beam sharpening SAR = synthetic-aperture radar PF = picture freeze TA = terrain avoidance TF = terrain following
We initiated a climb away from terrain to a safe altitude, and I brought the radar out of terrain avoidance mode to allow a better picture of the weather situation.
Flight manual information on the ability of aircraft terrain avoidance systems to support a fighter pilot flying with an uneven payload of bombs under the plane wings was due for testing.
It is a more reliable instrument for terrain avoidance, since barometric pressure can change.
Specifically, the plan will require more rigorous checks on critical engine parts to reduce the chances of engine failure and mandate that most commercial planes be equipped with new terrain avoidance systems to warn pilots when a plane is getting dangerously close to the ground.
Jeppesen terrain data provides pilots with information needed to prevent flying into terrain avoidance areas, while Jeppesen obstacle data is based on the most complete database of both man-made and natural obstacles relevant to aviation.
The aircraft did not have a working terrain avoidance and warning system (TAWS), though one was required.
Although potentially useful for terrain avoidance, that information is pretty much meaningless for your approach and landing at the airport because it's not referenced to the airport elevation and it's bouncing around like an uncertain stock market anyway.
