NTSB: Pilot Error Caused Fatal Jet Crash

The captain of a Beechcraft 390 Premier failed to follow the correct procedures for an anti-skid failure, resulting in a fiery crash that killed five passengers, the NTSB said in its final report on Tuesday. The jet was returning to Thomson-McDuffie County Airport, in Thomson, Georgia, on February 20, 2013, when it failed to slow down after touchdown. The captain initiated a go-around. Nine seconds later, the jet collided with a utility pole about 1,835 feet from the end of the runway, 63 feet above the ground. FULL STORY
