The NTSB put out a 153-page report last September that the crash was caused by a variety of factors, including an unstabilized approach during which the crew failed to configure and verify their computer information or communicate sufficiently.
The report, like most NTSB documents, is a clear factual description that makes for fairly dry reading. The movie released to accompany it Monday is an unprecedented addition that uses interviews and visual material that bring fresh life to the incident.
“People consume information and absorb lessons in different ways,” said NTSB Chairman Christopher A. Hart. “This video is another way to reach pilots and aviation safety professionals with the lessons we learned through our investigative work.”
