I heard nothing more about this. I was reminded yesterday about the FAA regs

This aircraft is prohibited from operating in congested airways or over densely populated areas unless directed by Air Traffic Control, or unless sufficient altitude is maintained to effect a safe emergency landing in the event of a power unit failure, without hazard to persons or property on the surface.”

Surely the key phrase there is "unless directed by ATC"?

I'd imagine they were following a standard instruction & flight path & surely if that were not the case the media would have been all over it like a rash.....

I really don't see any point in speculating & as I see it the only time sensible conclusions can be arrived at is after the ATIs have published their report.

They'd have to move the airstrip a considerable distance to ensure the statement of " unless sufficient altitude is maintained to effect a safe emergency landing in the event of a power unit failure, without hazard to persons or property on the surface" were observed.

Info gleaned from a utterly reliable source.

Carlos Conde de Almeida has been investigated for "homicide" & was presented to the Tribunal de Almada , was then released & awaits charges from the Public Prosecutor

Who is presumably & very wisely waiting for the Air Accident Investigators to publish their full report?

No surprises there then.
