NTSB Releases Expanded Colgan CVR Transcript
The NTSB Monday released an 111-page expanded transcript of the cockpit voice recordings from Continental Connection Flight 3407 (a.k.a. Colgan Air) which crashed February 12, in Clarence Center New York, killing all 49 aboard and one on the ground. The newly released information is factual and "does not provide analysis or the probable cause of the accident," according to the NTSB, but may certainly stimulate speculation. Flight 3407 went down in icing conditions after the aircraft stalled and failed to recover while on approach to Buffalo.
