Van Nuys Airport Crash Possibly Resulted From Open Door

The problem that sent a private jet into the ground just after takeoff at Van Nuys Airport on January 12th, may have been an open baggage door.

 

The plane ran into trouble just after takeoff, at which time witnesses claimed to have seen a cargo door open.

A new report into the matter looks to lend credence to that, noting that the baggage door’s locking mechanism was in the unlocked position.

Reports from Airport workers who saw the plane just before takeoff said that the door was closed, but once in the air it came open.
