The flight crashed shortly after it took off. Two main reasons are indicated: first the throttle of the starboard engine jammed, remaining in takeoff thrust, while the other engine reduced slowly to idle, creating an asymmetrical thrust condition that ultimately caused the aircraft to roll over and crash. Second, the crew failed to respond to the thrust asymmetry. The captain did not say anything on the flight recording during the emergency and it was concluded that he was either incapacitated or missing from his seat. The first officer expressed concern (it's not clear whether about the captain or the aircraft attitude) and attempted a recovery just some seconds before the crash. The name of the aircraft was Muntenia, named after the region of Romania. Piloting the Airbus were 49-year-old Captain Liviu Batanoiu and 44-year-old First Officer Ionel Stoi. None of the 10 crew and 50 passengers survived.
