Boeing Blamed
For Crash

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An inter-
nal investigation by El Al
into the crash of one of its
Boeing 747 cargo jets in
Amsterdam on Oct. 4 has
laid full blame for the
disaster on the plane's
American manufacturer.
The report recommends
that the airline sue the
Seattle-based Boeing Corp.
for full damages. The deci-
sion noted a similar loss of
an identical China Airline
> aircraft a year ago.
The commission, headed
by Amos Tamir, said Boeing
should be sued for the loss of
the plane and for compensa-
tion for any insurance
claims paid out to victims.
More than 40 people died
when the plane, en route to
Tel Aviv, slammed into
apartment buildings in an
Amsterdam suburb.
El Al said damages should
be paid as well to the corn-
pany for injuring its reputa-
tion, and for the cost of
mounting a giant interna-
tional public relations cam-
paign to offset the adverse
publicity caused by the
In Amsterdam, the Dutch
Aviation Board refused to
comment on El Al's conclu-
> -- The investigation being
conducted by the board will
take several more months to
complete, a board spokes-
man said.
> But a representative of the
lawyers for the crash victims
said El Al's conclusion
would enable them to file
their claims with U.S. courts
and thus receive more
damages than they could
through Israeli courts.
The commission cleared
the plane's crew, all of whom
perished, of any responsibili-
ty for the crash.
The crash was caused by
the failure of the pins con-
necting the No. 3 engine to
the right wing, which broke
away, tearing away the No.
4 engine too, the report con-
The crew did everything in
their power to prevent the
crash, the investigators
Investigation into the air-
craft's maintenance showed
that no fault lay with ground
maintenance engineers or
In addition, the commis-
sion charged Boeing for its
"slow and weak reaction,"
bordering "on negligence,"
to the earlier crash of the
China Airlines plane.
