TransAsia's safety record under scrutiny after latest crash

NNA- Taiwan regulators are likely to put more pressure on TransAsia Airways to review its maintenance and safety procedures after Wednesday’s crash, its second fatal accident in seven months.

Industry data showed the crash of Flight GE235, in which at least 19 people were killed, was the fifth aircraft the airline has written off since 1995.

The death toll could still rise after the ATR 72-600, which had 58 passengers and crew on board, crashed into a river shortly after taking off from Taipei’s Songshan airport. — REUTERS
