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.
