Jul 12, 2021 25th Anniversary

A passenger plane has gone off course in northern France after it failed to properly power on its onboard fuel pumps.

The flight, which originated in the French Alps, crashed on Thursday morning and was not able to be landed, French air transport authorities said.

French transport officials confirmed the aircraft had failed to turn on its fuel pumps, causing a power failure that was not immediately immediately known to be caused by an engine failure.

The Airbus A330-200 was scheduled to fly from Lille to Paris.
