Cork air crash inquests open

 

Inquests into the deaths of six people killed during the Manx2 plane crash at Cork Airport have begun in Ireland.

 

 

 

The hearing, being held in Cork, will take two days to complete and is hearing from passengers and the emergency services.

 

 

 

Six people died and six survived the crash which happened in thick fog as the aircraft from George Best Belfast City Airport attempted its third landing in February 2011.

 

 

 

It’s thought the verdicts and an Air Accident Investigation Unit report released last year will be central to civil claims – which will be heard in Chicago.
