Faulty car­bu­re­tor caused plane crash

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Al­most five months af­ter ac­tor Har­ri­son Ford’s (right) plane crashed, a new re­port by the Na­tional Trans­porta­tion Safety Board has re­vealed that the crash was caused by en­gine fail­ure re­lated to a loose part. Com­ment­ing on the crash, NTSB said that the car­bu­re­tor’s main me­ter­ing jet be­came loose, which likely stemmed from when the plane was re­built 17 years ear­lier, re­ported TMZ.com. The re­port re­vealed that the 73-year-old ac­tor’s shoul­der har­ness was not prop­erly re­in­forced, which con­trib­uted to the sever­ity of his in­juries. The ac­tor will be seen in the up­com­ing film Star Wars: The Force Awak­ens.
