Hi there,

Can anybody enlighten me on the cause of the Lauda Air Boeing Crash in 1991?
Where can I obtain futher information regarding the cause of this
accident. I believe that one of the reversers deployed shortly after
takeoff, but as far as my limited knowledge of aerodynamics is concerned
I have been led to believe that accidental reverser deployment does not
lead to fatal consequences in most cases.
