Narrative:
Iberia flight IB432 suffered a loss of all fan cowl doors on both engines during departure from Madrid-Barajas Airport. The aircraft returned and landed safely.

Causes
The incident occurred during the first take-off of the day, when the aircraft was put into service with the cowlings of the two engines closed and the locking latches unlocked and unsecured; this occurred as a result of the scheduled maintenance tasks not being completed because the relay procedure had not been performed correctly during a shift changeover.
This circumstance had not been detected in the external inspection of the aircraft, carried out as part of the flight preparation, at night and in adverse weather conditions.
