The Myanmar Accident Investigation Bureau (MAIB) are investigating an accident involving an Embraer Regional Jet, ERJ190-100 and an Avions Tolouse Regionale, ATR 72-600.

As part of its investigation, the MAIB initially requested assistance from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) in the download and analysis of the flight recorder from the Embraer.

Consistent with clause 5.23 of Annex 13 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (ICAO Annex13), the ATSB appointed an accredited representative to assist the MAIB and initiated an investigation under the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.

The MAIB subsequently informed the ATSB that they had sought assistance elsewhere for the flight recorder download.

The ATSB has therefore discontinued the investigation.

Any requests for information regarding the occurrence should be addressed to:
