Default Shocking cause for the Air crash at Bangalore !!

Readers may recall the air crash of the 6-seater air craft at Bangalore on September 8th. - Four killed in air crash in Bangalore

Today read in the Business Line that at the airport the aircraft was refuelled with ATF instead of AvGas which is used for the piston engine aircraft which the ill-fated Vulcanair Partenavia (P-68C) was !!

On googling I find that this newreport is acutally datelined Sept 11th in The Hindu..
The Hindu : Front Page : Wrong fuel caused plane crash?

The Business Line article is an analysis on the risks in aviation industry..
