(SB-10-02) Captain’s Inappropriate Actions Led To Crash Of Flight 3407 In Clarence Center, New York, NTSB Says

Washington, DC – The National Transportation Safety Board determined that the captain of Colgan Air flight 3407 inappropriately responded to the activation of the stick shaker, which led to an aerodynamic stall from which the airplane did not recover. In a report adopted today in a public Board meeting in Washington, additional flight crew failures were noted as causal to the accident.
