The incident occurred on June 8, 2022 within the local air traffic control area of Heraklion International Airport Nikos Kazantzakis on the island of Crete, Greece. The aircraft had just taken off for the return flight to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The process update is given because the investigation takes longer than a year.
Immediately after leaving the runway, abnormal steering corrections were necessary to keep the aircraft level (wings level). It was unclear what caused the control problems. The flight crew decided to divert to Athens, Greece. The approach and landing were without any significant problems. An initial inspection revealed that an aileron cable had broken.
The study is currently in the analysis phase . The final report will be published in due course.
