NTSB – 2008 Accident at Owatonna Airport
NTSB DETERMINES THE CAPTAIN’S DECISION TO ATTEMPT A GO- AROUND LATE IN THE LANDING ROLL WITH INSUFFICIENT RUNWAY REMAINING CAUSED THE 2008 ACCIDENT IN OWATONNA
The NTSB has released a conclusion in the 2008 plane crash at Owatonna Degner Regional Airport, Owatonna.
According to the NTSB report, probable cause was determined to be the captain’s decision to attempt a go-around late in the landing roll with insufficient runway remaining. Contributing factors were cited as “pilots’ poor crew coordination and lack of cockpit discipline; fatigue, which
likely impaired both pilots’ performance; and the failure of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to require crew management training.”
