Three British Airways crafts affected by fatal crash glitch

The Sunday Express has obtained a document that says that the same tubes that caused a fatal crash as four years ago are being used in the larger Airbuses. Three British Airways planes have been affected so far, with two having to make emergency landings.

The tubes provide air speed data to the aircraft’s computers and pilots but are prone to freezing in bad weather. This can lead to a computer shutdown of autopilot. This, in turn, results in the crew being forced to fly the aircraft in the poor weather conditions.

In 2009, an Air France Airbus went down into the Atlantic due to this issue, killing 228 people.
