At the request of the Mexican Government, the NTSB is sending a team of investigators to assist in their investigation of Friday’s crash of an Aerospatiale AS 332L Super Puma.
On November 11, 2011, about 0845 local time, the Eurocopter, enroute from Camp Marte, Mexico to Cuernavaca, Morelos, crashed in a rural area south of Mexico City. Mexican authorities have indicated that all eight people on board were fatally injured.
The NTSB has designated air safety investigator Lorenda Ward as the traveling U.S. Accredited Representative. Accompanying Ms. Ward will be NTSB Operational Factors and Airworthiness investigators and representatives from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The team arrived in Mexico City yesterday.
