Australian Transport Safety Bureau and Civil Aviation Safety Authority review Jetstar A330 incident

Australian Transport Safety Bureau and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority are currently looking into the similarities between a Jetstar A330-200 instrument blackout on 29-Oct-2009 and the Air France A330-200 crash over the Atlantic in Jun-2009, which suffered the same issue (Herald Sun, 04-Nov-2009). According to Jetstar, early indications have found the airspeed sensing system suffered a momentary interruption, and then returned to normal. The carrier is currently liaising with Airbus on the matter.
