The ATSB is investigating an operational event involving a Boeing 737, VH-VUE, on approach to Adelaide Airport South Australia, on 13 September 2017.

During descent, the airspeed trend vector started to increase. Control inputs made by the flight crew disconnected the autopilot and a minor airframe overspeed occurred. One cabin crew member sustained serious injuries and a second cabin crew member sustained minor injuries.

As part of the investigation, the ATSB will:

  • interview members of the aircraft crew and gather operational information
  • download and analyse data from the flight data and cockpit voice recorders
  • review air traffic control radar and audio recordings
  • review meteorological information.
