Victim: Dr Aisling Butler from Roscrea, Co Tipperary

THE father of an Irish doctor who died in a plane crash that killed 228 people has said he is “disappointed” at a decision by French magistrates not to proceed with manslaughter charges against Air France and airline manufacturer Airbus.

Aisling Butler, from Roscrea in Co Tipperary, was among the 216 passengers and 12 crew members, who were killed when Air France Flight 447 from Rio de Janeiro to Paris disappeared over the Atlantic on June 1, 2009.

Two other Irish doctors - Eithne Walls from Co Down and Jane Deasy from Rathgar, Dublin - were also killed in the incident.
